Battle Fusion! If your team has less than equal to 3000 Life Points, play 1 "Battle Fusion" from outside of the Deck at the beginning of your partner, Jaden Yuki's turn. This Skill can only be used once per Duel.
When a card or effect is activated that would destroy 2 or more cards you control: Negate the effect, and if you do, destroy that card, then you can Special Summon 1 "Stardust Dragon" from your Extra Deck.
Any effect that would inflict damage to a player increases their Life Points by the same amount, instead. During either player's turn, when a card or effect is activated that would destroy a monster(s) on the field: You can send 1 card from your hand to the Graveyard; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy it.
1 LIGHT Tuner + 2 or more non-Tuner DARK monsters Once per turn, you can send 1 LIGHT monster from your hand to the Graveyard to select 1 Level 5 or higher DARK monster in your Graveyard. Special Summon that monster. It cannot be used as a Synchro Material Monster.
"Elemental HERO Flame Wingman" + "Elemental HERO Sparkman"Must be Fusion Summoned and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. This card gains 300 ATK for each "Elemental HERO" card in your Graveyard. When this card destroys a monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: Inflict damage to your opponent equal to the ATK of the destroyed monster in the Graveyard.
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.
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.
The Paradox Brothers aren't the only random bonus tag duel you can get. I just fought Yubel and a zombified Slifer Red student.
