Do not have 2 monsters in your field. Marik will tribute those monsters to Special Summon Lava Golem.
Avoid sending cards to your Graveyard at the beginning of the Duel to prevent early damage from Marik's skill Shadow Game. Set your spell cards so you don't have to discard cards immediately by having a full hand.
Use heal cards if possible, this will prevent Marik from reducing your Life Points to 0 when he special summons Masked Beast Des Gardius and another monster. This also provides you longevity against Shadow Game.
Pot of Benevolence is used to prevent Marik from decking out before you. This also prevents or lessen damage to his own Life Points by Shadow Game, his Life Points might be reduced to 0 before your final turn.
Use Pot of Benevolence whenever Marik has at least 2 cards in his graveyard to prevent him from burning himself to death.
Aegis of Gaia is to make sure you do not get burned to death by Shadow Game.
Remember to always keep a spell/trap zone free until your second to last turn. An ideal spell/trap zone would be 1 Yellow Luster Shield, 1 Aegis of Gaia and 1 free space. Setting Jar of Greed would be fine since it can always be used.
I was forced to end this event a day early because of my annoying homework and an annoying power outage. Even though I got the cards I wanted, I'm still kinda sad that I never got to see him use his Lava Golem. Goodbye, Yami Marik! Well, not really, since I have him. But goodbye, event.
I'm disappointed, marik dropped coins all the time, i got just 2 gilgarth, 2 jelly, 2 des gradius, 4 dark jeroids (one prismatic) and 6 of tiki and other useless cards... after so much effort it would have been nice with 3 copies of gilgarth
i hope game programmers will introduce the trade function in the future, i don't think i'll use this jeroid
Just want to share... Cerberus Deck actually work. I use draw:light (1500 lp cost) with Para Bro. Succeed to get 2.5M.. After that, I just want to try with Yugi with Sorcery Conduit (1800 lp cost). Then, I saw yugi & marik scene for the first time. What I'm curious is Marik summon his 2nd Des Gradius, steal my Cerberus and kill me. It didn't happen if I'm using Para Bro.
Why is it happen? Did character used effect AI respond? or is it just Marik hate Yugi so much?
What you should really be paying attention to is that they somehow played 20 Prismatic cards AND "won" the duel in less than 5 turns. Oh, and no Spells or Traps played. ...so too obv hax. At least be slick with it. -_-
As soon as you play one pvp duel, your app will be banned permanently. The server doesn't detect cheat software as long as you play standard duelist only since you are your own host. However, it will ban you if you play a pvp and you still have the cheat software installed at this points. So have fun with your rewards, CreativTimmy #2. :-D
cereus union attack never works, he always get masked beast on second turned rolls over your cereus, it is impossible to get him higher than 3300 by second turn
Time to uninstall the game then. If you think you are being rigged or trolled by Marik for summoning the masked beast very early in match, accept it as such. But, do NOT assert your generalization or supposition that "the scenario you described never happened once" or state an improbable probability such as "that fluke video is 1 in a million". If it happened to you every game so be it. Accept.
