Can I see the proof for Paradox getting Draw Sense: Spell/Trap? Both a close friend and I have gotten 30+ skill drops, with repeats on every single other one, and neither of us have that one.

proof for yugi having restart?

So I can't get Destiny Draw on a character besides yami yugi? I had assumed it meant that only yugi would drop destint draw, and no other character. Therefore you could get destiny draw with any charactee as long as you are battling yugi. I assume this is wrong sadly

Guys, if I erase skill which I have learn, will it come again in DA reward? Or how many skills that we can keep? I wonder why I can't get "no mortal can resist" ishuzu's skill because of my skill space is full.

Restart skill VS duel, standby skill

Restart is better when you need a certain card to be in your starting hand, example:gravekeeper recruiter, venus. Duel standby is better when you need a certain combo in your starting hand, example: naturia. But those two skill can replace each other, its just a matter of boosting consistency.

i see, so if i need blue eyes at starting hand so the best skill is restart? If i need 1 of 3 card for red eyes insight and 1 of 3 card for red eyes spirit,so the best skill is duel,standby?

Yes, considering red eyes insight also search for red eyes spirit it will rarely bricked. Restart doesn't guarantee you have a better starting hand than initially, so use it wisely.
