Featured Duel: Blue Angel vs. Spectre
Turn 4: Blue Angel
Blue Angel's hand contains "Trickstar Treat", "Trickstar Lilybell" and "Trickstar Candina". Blue Angel Normal Summons "Candina" (1800/400). As "Candina" was Normal Summoned, Blue Angel activates its effect to add a "Trickstar" card from her Deck to her hand. She adds "Trickstar Temptation". Blue Angel uses "Candina" and "Trickstar Lycoris" to Link Summon "Trickstar Crimson Heart" (2000/LINK-2/↙→) to the Extra Monster Zone. As Blue Angel Link Summoned a "Trickstar" monster, she activates the effect of "Trickstar Light Arena", letting her Special Summon a "Trickstar" monster that was used for that Link Summon from the GY. She Special Summons "Candina" to the bottom-left Link Point of "Crimson Heart". As a "Trickstar" monster was Normal or Special Summoned to a zone "Crimson Heart" points to, Blue Angel gains 200 LP (Blue Angel: 3600 → 3800 LP). Blue Angel activates the effect of "Crimson Heart", discarding a "Trickstar" card to make both players draw a card. She discards an unknown "Trickstar" card. Blue Angel activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Trickstar Bouquet", returning a "Trickstar" monster to her hand, then increasing the ATK of a monster on the field by that "Trickstar" monster's ATK until the End Phase. She returns "Candina" and increases the ATK of "Sunavalon Dryades" ("Dryades": 0 → 1800 ATK). As she controls a "Trickstar" monster, Blue Angel activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Trickstar Temptation", to return a monster with an ATK that is higher than its original ATK to the hand. As "Blue Angel" activated a Spell Card, Spectre activates the effect of "Sunvine Maiden" in her hand, to Special Summon it in Defense Position (???/0) and negate the effect of that Spell Card. Blue Angel Sets a card. During the End Phase, the effect of "Bouquet" expires ("Dryades": 1800 → 0 ATK).
