Lightning VS Blood Shepherd

Turn 1: Blood Shepherd
Blood Shepherd Normal Summons "Drone XL" (400/???). He uses "Drone XL" to Link Summon "Battledrone Sergeant" (800/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Drone XL" was sent to the GY as Link Material, its effect lets Blood Shepherd Special Summon a "Drone Token" (0/0). As Blood Shepherd controls a "Drone" monster, he Special Summons "Scud Drone" (800/1100) from his hand via its own effect. He uses "Sergeant" and "Scud Drone" to Link Summon "Battledrone Warrant" (1200/LINK-2/←↓), then uses "Warrant" and the "Drone Token" to Link Summon "Battledrone General" (2400/LINK-3/←↓→). Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "General", allowing him to Special Summon a "Drone" monster from his GY to the zone "General" points to. He Special Summons "Warrant". Blood Shepherd sets a card.

Turn 2: Lightning
Lightning activates the Field Spell "Armatos Colosseum", letting him add 1 "Armatos Legio" card from his Deck to his hand. Lightning adds an unspecified card and Normal Summons "Armatos Legio Seeker" (0/400). Lightning uses "Seeker" to Link Summon "Armatos Legio Decurion" (1000/↓). Since Lightning Link Summoned an "Armatos Legio" monster, he activates the effect of "Colosseum", letting him send 1 "Armatos Legio" card from his hand to his GY to target a number of "Armatos Legio" monsters in his GY equal to the summoned monster's Link Rating and Special Summon them to the zone(s) the Link Monster points to in Defense Position. Lightning sends "Armatos Legio Gradius" from his hand to his GY to Special Summon "Seeker" from his GY next to the zone "Decurion" points to. Lightning sends another "Seeker" from his hand to his GY to Special Summon "Armatos Legio Speculata" (0/1800) in Defense Position from his hand via its own effect. Lightning uses "Seeker" and "Speculata" to Link Summon "Armatos Legio Centurion" (1700/LINK-2/←→) to the zone "Decurion" points to. Lightning activates the effect of "Colosseum", sending "Armatos Legio Scutum" from his hand to the GY to Special Summon "Seeker" and "Speculata" from his GY to the zones that "Centurion" points to. Lightning uses "Speculata" to Link Summon another "Armatos Legio Decurion" (1000/↓).

Lightning activates the Link Spell Card "Judgement Arrows" (↖↑↗) at the Spell/Trap Zone that the second "Decurion" points to. Lightning uses "Seeker" and the second "Decurion" to Link Summon another "Armatos Legio Centurion" (1700/LINK-2/←→). The first "Centurion" attacks "Warrant", but Blood Shepherd activates his set Continuous Trap "Snatch Drone" since he controls a "Drone" monster, letting him target one card in Lightning's Spell/Trap Zone and destroy it. Blood Shepherd destroys "Judgement Arrows", whose effect destroys all monsters it points to since it left the field. Because another "Armatos Legio" Link Monster(s) would be destroyed by a card effect besides itself, Lightning activates the effect of "Decurion", allowing him to destroy it instead of the other monsters. A replay occurs and the first "Centurion" attacks and destroys "Warrant" (Blood Shepherd: 4000 → 3500 LP).

Duel continues in the next episode.
