Duel reward

You can also get skills by winning a duel against Legend Duelists. What skill you find is associated with which character you use.

Maybe a vanilla beatdown, just throw in your best vanilla monsters (jerry, dunames, etc.), OTC, E-Con, MW and you're pretty sure that the extra card will be useful. (Just an idea, never tried it even though I dropped the skill).

Is destiny board a real skill?

Yes it is

Anoymous 11days ago Reply
It doesn't work the same way as the event though. You actually have to get Necrofear into the graveyard before it triggers, it doesn't just start there. It kinda sucks. Fiend Farewell is better for Bakura I think.

Does anyone see Odion use life O Cost in the due? I was so surprised when he's using this skill

I've run into pretty much every character using the LC0 Cyber Stein Deck. I think people pretty much use whoever they get the skill with first.
