Flashback Featured Duel: Theodore Hamilton vs. Ryujiro Mizunuma

Takeru VS Ryujiro

This Duel is conducted as a Master Duel.

Turn 1: Ryujiro Mizunuma
Ryujiro activates the Continuous Spell Card "Call of the Mummy". As he controls no monsters, Ryujiro activates the effect of "Call of the Mummy", Special Summoning a Zombie monster from his hand. He Special Summons "Plague Wolf" (1000/1000). Ryujiro Normal Summons another copy of "Plague Wolf". Ryujiro activates the effects of both copies of "Plague Wolf", making their ATK become double their original ATK until the End Phase (Both "Plague Wolf": 1000 → 2000 ATK). Ryujiro Sets a card. During the End Phase, as the first effect of both copies of "Plague Wolf" were activated, their second effect activates, destroying them. Ryujiro activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Surrounded by Fallen Wolves", Special Summoning two or three Zombie monsters from his GY of the same name with 1000 or less ATK that were destroyed by a card effect this turn in Defense Position with their effects negated, then Ryujiro draws cards equal to the number of monsters Special Summoned by this effect. He Special Summons two copies of "Plague Wolf" (1000/1000) and draws two cards.

Turn 2: Theodore Hamilton
As he controls no monsters, Theodore activates the Spell Card "Majesty of Fire", Special Summoning a Level 5 or higher FIRE monster from his hand. He Special Summons the Level 8 "Phoenix Gearfried" (2800/2200). Theodore activates the Equip Spell Card "Phoenix Gearblade", equipping it to "Phoenix Gearfried". The equipped monster gains 300 ATK ("Phoenix Gearfried": 2800 → 3100 ATK). Theodore Normal Summons "Valkyrian Knight" (1900/1200). The effect of "Valkyrian Knight" prevents monsters Ryujiro controls from attacking face-up Warrior monsters except itself. "Valkyrian Knight" and "Phoenix Gearfried" attack and destroy both copies of "Plague Wolf". As "Phoenix Gearfried" equipped with "Phoenix Gearblade" destroyed Ryujiro's monster by battle, Theodore activates the effect of "Phoenix Gearblade", sending it to the GY to allow FIRE Warrior monsters he controls to make a second attack during each Battle Phase this turn ("Phoenix Gearfried": 3100 → 2800 ATK). "Valkyrian Knight" attacks Ryujiro directly. As Theodore's monster declared a direct attack, Ryujiro activates his face-down Trap Card "Howl of the Fallen Wolf", Special Summoning two Zombie monsters from his GY of the same name with 1000 or less ATK in Defense Position, then adding a Field Spell Card from his Deck to his hand. He Special Summons two copies of "Plague Wolf" (1000/1000) and adds "Edge of Darkness" to his hand. "Valkyrian Knight" and "Phoenix Gearfried" attack and destroy both copies of "Plague Wolf".

Turn 3: Ryujiro Mizunuma
Ryujiro activates the Field Spell Card "Edge of Darkness", and activates its effect, banishing two Zombie monsters from his GY with the same name to add a Zombie monster from his Deck or GY to his hand. He banishes two copies of "Plague Wolf" to add an unknown card from his Deck to his hand. As he controls no monsters, Ryujiro activates the effect of "Call of the Mummy", Special Summoning "Despair from the Dark" (2800/3000) from his hand.
