Yami Yugi has Spell Specialist skill too
Alex
Hi! I was wondering if anyone could help me? When I try to set a skill, it never allows me to tap on the "set skill" button and it says that I have still not activated one even though I try to. Do I need to reach a certain stage or something? I am at stage 16. I know that for some things you can't activate or use unless you have passed certain stages or requirements, so I was wondering if this was one of them? I am also participating in the Kaiba Cup,so any information will help me out, thanks!

Don't worry if it doesn't work. you don't need skills to be great in DL. All you need is actual skill at yugioh.

Negate the effect of a Monster, Spell, or Trap and destroy it.
This Skill can only be used once per Duel."
