How to unlock

There has been no official announcement about how to unlock Yami Marik, but, at Jump Festa 2017 that was held on December 16th-17th in Tokyo, JAPAN, visitors can play a duel against Yami Marik, Pegasus, and Yami Bakura visiting the Duel Links booth.

Additionally, here is a list of cards that are used in a deck Yami Bakura uses at JUMP Festa and new to Duel Links.

New cards in Yami Marik's deck


Description in the game

Yami Marik is Marik Ishtar's dark side created from the suffering he endures as a Grevekeeper. Cruel and vicious, he enjoys watching his opponents suffer. His appetite for destruction is incomprehensible. His "Lava Golem" can be summoned to the opponent's side of the field where it slowly puts the stranglehold on his foe.

Necrovalley will shock the meta for sure, not the 500 atk def but the floodgate effect ones. It will stop so many meta decks that utilize graveyard (red eyes, zombies, phoenix).

I don't how good is to put Lava Golem. I don't think any normal player doesn't want such awesome character turning into another lame Weevil.

It's YOU (the controller) who takes the damage, not me (the owner).

The person in control of lava golem loses 1,000 so you get rid of 2 monsters opponent has and they take 1,000 each turn

Somehow Marik's deck is full of DARK Fiend-Type monsters, the strong ones too, no less. Might just work really well with Bakura's Fiend deck.

So, if Yaminogame/Shadowgame skill play marik, and they change what they can change the skill?: shadow game: If a monster is send to the graveyard: the player who controll the monster what send to the graveyard, lose 300.?? Or You can only use this skill once per duel: each card is in the opponent and your graveyard: lose 100 Lp for each card have in your and your opponent's graveyard???

if marik did have good skills I think one of them should be take 2'000-3,000 lp and summon one monster from your graveyard

Hmm let me correct you his Golem will be summon on your opponents field but lava golem has 3k atk points so still u better handle your opponent . Each turn his getting. 1000k of dmg if recommend you to use pumpkin and balloons and two burning lands plus some burn spells like hinotama 3 copies. Then winds storm and 2spear kuribo 2econs 1 mirror wall and 2mask of accurse pretty good huh?

And if they release after you summon Lava golem, the Mask of Restrict. + nibmle musasabi it's good, one or two low ATK monster + 1 high ATK monster but if you use accursed, you win the duel..

Given how Bakura lv 50 had zorc and paradox brothers lv 50 had gate guardian, that's not a bad idea actually.
