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.

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.
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.

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.
What js the best deck to use against yami marik?? When unlocking misions like 4000 atk and joey 1000 life points plwase??

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.
I just can't unlock him.
I won like, 3 times against him, but I'm never able to do any of his Unlock missions.

All of them.
I don't know how to summon Slifer before he's able to summon Ra without killing him.
The 4000 Damage is possible I guess, but same problem as above.
The 1000 LP is also a problem, I assumed to not summon anything until my LP are at/under 1000 LP, but he always kills me. His usual monsters are too weak so they can't destroy mine, but as soon as he pulls Ra out, I lose.

It feels to me like you just started playing recently and lacking lots of nice cards. In that case, don't rush it. Get better at game, get stronger cards.

Then you can solve those missions with ease.

I'll be here time to time. If there's any specific question and I see it, I will answer you if possible.

Anyone has problems with a mission to unlock Marik "4000 or more battle damage pts in one attack against Yami Marik lvl 30 using Yami Yugi"?

Two attemps with Piranha Army + Secret Pass + 2 Union Attack + Anti-Magic Arrows combo and... Direct attack - Nothing (no damage registered).

¿Am I missing something?
