I enjoyed this event. However, maybe I am just unlucky, but when playing against the Weevil team, his skill puts his insect cards most of the times on top of my deck, or very close if not on top.

Stay in Dark Magic Cup final (against Kaiba & Mokuba), use suicide deck and duel as many as you can. Every 2 loses almost guaranteed to get 300 coins. This would save you a lot of time

It's a good counter especially with treachourous trap hole with a free stardust dragon. It's not the best card but they've had far worse cards as ultra(blazing impachi)

The Paradox Brothers aren't the only random bonus tag duel you can get. I just fought Yubel and a zombified Slifer Red student.

Lol that's awesome, I never saw the CPU do that before. And they tend to love triggering effects, so it's funny he didn't do it with Armed.

The partner AI is garbage too. I’ve had to turn on manual duel for the Yugi cup because he doesn’t seem to ever use my cards properly.

I think the most infuriating moment was when the had a Silent Swordsman out and a facedown SSS. No enemy monsters left, no back row, lifepoints wide open. Yugi attacks leaving them with *exactly* 1500 LPs, then used SSS while ending his turn.

I had to duel lv20 Mai/Tea instead of lv40 the first time I went through the DM cup, because the Yami Yugi partner AI is so bad, I lost three times in a row against lv40 Mai/Tea.

It truly is. Between his constant need to do *anything* to summon DM and always having your monsters get banished, that matchup was truly the worst first time around. The only other deck to give me similar difficulty with the mandatory AI was the crystal beast deck because he always summoned that 4000 attack monster on the first turn you attacked.

I built a deck that makes farming the Dark Magic Cup a breeze. The core idea is extremely simple. Use two different Dark Magician decks together, stomp the enemy with the synergy, and stall until you can get Ra on the field. You can use the Dark Magician support cards to clear the field right before summoning it, and attack directly right after. I'm using Marik's Power of the Tributed to ensure that Ra has at least 5000 attack. Make sure you duel the Lv.20 enemies. You'll still have several thousand over 8k points, and you won't have to deal with their annoying skills.

this must be your first tag team event.

We use the old style, everything the same except no Ra but use last gamble style for farming 8k constantly.
