  • The Setup you want on the field to stall is Zombie World and Labyrinth Wall.
  • Zombie World must be activated very early before Arkana has a chance to summon Dark Magician.
  • Use Planet Pathfinder to search out Zombie World.
  • In case Arkana summons Dark Magician Before you have Zombie World, use Floodgate Trap Hole on him.
  • Shard of Greed, Jar of Greed, and Legacy of Yata Garasu is used to deck out faster and draw the cards you need.
  • On the final turn, put your Labyrinth Wall to attack position and special summon Machina Cannon in attack position then use Shield and Sword.

  • Summon Gate Guardian immediately, he has a high enough attack for you to stall the entire duel.
  • To protect your Gate Guardian from Thousand Knives use Ready for Intercepting, Magic Jammer, or Riryoku Field. Ready for Intercepting Works because Arkana cannot activate Thousand Knives if you flip Dark Magician face-down immediately after it is summoned.
  • It might be safest to set 2 of your defensive cards at a time because Arkana is able to sometimes summon 2 Dark Magicians in one turn.
  • Attack Arkana's face-down Dark Magician.
  • Shard of Greed, Good Goblin Housekeeping, and Jar of Greed are used to draw into your defensive cards quicker and so that you can deck out quicker than Arkana.
  • Remember to activate Last Day of Witch during the final turn if your opponent controls Dark Magician before you summon anything. This is to prevent Arkana From using Dark Renewal.

Ojama Lock seems to work fine against Arkana's level 40 deck

damn, with this ojama deck I clap him
Arkana can summon 3 DMs in 1 turn. not just 2. I didn't 🔥 his monsters because it was destroying his deck. Sometimes I couldn't complete the farm because he decked out too fast before I could get my combo off. :(
I been playin Duel Links a year and this are things Duel Links need to work on update:

- Legendary Duelist level capacity
- Legendary Duelist new rewards on gate
- More Stages, specially for Gx
- Make possible to make glossy or prismatic any card, with the useless stones or something not only the card trader cards.
- Less spawn events more unlock events (and new and better cards if the event get repeat is just boring doin the event all over again for lame cards)
- New ways to get gems, the fountain and trash is just lame (I don't know something like in the duel school, or challenges, able to do every day)
- Where is the tag duel idea?
-Complete old archetypes (grave keepers, gem knights, harpies) so many of them just get left in oblivion.

Guaranteed win, unless Arkana manages to summon DM and activates Thousand Knives right before you get any Riryoku Field or Ready for Intercepting

20% and I'm generous. Would work better if you could have 12 ryrioku fields in the deck.

Use Cerberus.
You can use this deck to farm. The rate is high. The only way you loose is that he summons DM before you have Ready to Intercept or Riryoku Field
Can I unlock him during this period?
Ojama works good, just hope for none dark magician
At the gate he’s only level 10 same with the hunter, anyone know why? I’ve already dueled him and won multiple times at level 10 at the gate, stage level 60 using level 30+ characters

I’m talking about arkana not Marik
The cerberus deck doesn't work by any stretch of the imagination, Arkana summons 1400 monsters that laugh at your sorcerer conduit (1800) and draw light (1500) skills so you can't draw cerberus and you die. He also seems to always have the trap that targets one of your monsters and one of his, destroys them and then summons a DM.

And in the odd situations this doesn't happen, he buffs his DM more than your cerberus.

I'm basically praying to get the needed cards in the first hand, and even when so pray that he doesn't have the damn trap.
There's a very easy farm deck against Marik/Arkana, you can change the monsters displayed here for any FIRE type, with exception of FLAME TIGER and HAZY FLAME SPHYNX(if you get Hazy Sphynx in start hand and Flame Tiger, will be easier to summon it cause of Flame Tiger effect) just do everything possible to summon Sphynx and get Beast Rising ready, then keep using Sphynx effect with Aroma Strategy from Mai, and banishing with Beast Rising, powering up Sphynx till it get 10k, keep destroying every monster on field to do the OTK when 10k damage.
"Abyssal Designator" is for Marik Lava Golem's and "RA (Divine beast)"
