Beating him while you purposely have LP lower than 1000 LP is the hardest to me. I don't have self LP reducing card such as cosmic cyclone.

Well this was a previously EVENT EXCLUSIVE character, so it makes sense for his unlock missions to be hard.
I CAN'T PASS THE MISSION TEA USING LVL 10 MONSTER I summon obelisk,Malefic truth dragon, i need to summon more than just one lvl 10 monster

That's because it has to be Mai.

It's a reference to when Mai took Ra from him and summoned it. (sort of summoned, anyway...)

And I just used Obelisk and didn't let him bring out Ra.
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.

he can just tribute it off next turn.... you most likely take damage once, so not that great at all

lol tribute Golem in 1 turn? You have to be very lucky to even have a 1 Tribut Monster. Even a controller is not a garantee, since the opponent must have 1 face up monster in order to activate E-Controller.
Are you f***ing kidding me?!?!?! Shadow game is a skill drop?!?!?! Do you people have any idea how hard it is to get these drop skills?!?!?!

What’s the best deck for Yami Marik right now? If yes, show me it.

Not sure what the best strategy is, but I enjoy running a Stall/Mill deck with his Shadow Game ability. Its a very nasty combo. I recommend the Trap Card "Jar of Avarice" in the deck to keep your Graveyard as empty as possible in late game.

They don't call him "cringe marik" for nothing.
Grrr... Why won’t shadow game drop! I tried farming in legendary duels, I tried to get a drop from pvp duels. But it won’t show up.
I'm shocked that they are giving us gardius when it's umbra and lumis that use him.
Marik uses holding hands and legs newdoria and other fiends which should had been level up or prizes for beating him

I don't know what cards you have. Just use the best/ most complete decks you have and tweak accordingly.

Like aromage bergamot for 4000 attack, Ra or last gamble for low lp win.
