How to use this deck


Des CounterblowEnchanted Javelin

For Destiny Draw decks, the idea behind it is to use the skill multiple times by taking damage and healing up to compensate for the damage taken. Repeat the process until you can finish the duel with your combo. You get to choose what card to draw from your deck during your draw phase if your opponent deals at least 2000 damage to you, regardless whether it is by effect or by battle.

Starting the duel

Enchanted JavelinSupremacy BerryNutrient Z

Starting the duel, if you don't get the cards that you need, simply set/use any healing card that you have. If you don't get a Des Counterblow in your hand, you will need to be more conservative and manage your LP carefully to survive the rounds. It's usually recommended to let Bakura's first attack go through, in case he tribute summons into a Ha Des for your Javelin/Nutrient. You don't need to heal that much if you already have a lot of LP when you are nearing your final turns. This is because sometimes Bakura will not summon and attack with any monsters, which can leave your trap card(s) unused, and you need at least 1 empty spell/trap zone for the last turn.

Destiny Draw

Des CounterblowEnchanted JavelinPot of Benevolence

After you have taken at least 2000 damage, you can use Destiny Draw during your draw phase. Prioritize on getting the cards for your setup, which is Des Counterblow, some healing cards, and Pot of Benevolence to remove Bakura's Necrofear. De-Spell is used to destroy Bakura's Burning Land, while The Golden Apples is good for stalling when he summons his high attack monster. Make sure to not attack Bakura using your monsters to deal battle damage. Finishing the duel with effect damage only will give a bonus.


Here are the list of cards you will need during the early turns, with the top having the highest priority and the bottom having the lowest priority:

  • Des Counterblow
  • Enchanted Javelin/Supremacy Berry/Skull-Mark Ladybug
  • Gravedigger Ghoul / Pot of Benevolence
  • Nutrient Z
  • Rain of Mercy/Dian Keto the Cure Master
  • Rest of the unmentioned cards

Using certain cards

The Golden ApplesPot of Benevolence
  • If you don't get a Des Counterblow in your hand, you can use Destiny Draw to take Golden Apples from your deck. It will let you survive for at least a turn, saving your other healing cards and giving you time to get more draws, or use the skill to get a Des Counterblow.
  • If Bakura still has the Destiny Board skill active, and he has 2 Dark Necrofear in the graveyard, you will need to remove both of them to disable the skill.

Final turn

Gravekeeper's VassalAutonomous Action Unit

Summon Vassal and use Secret Pass to the Treasures, as well as double Union Attack. Then special summon Bakura's Dark Necrofear using your Autonomous Action Unit, and attack directly using Vassal. This will deal over 5,000 damage using Vassal. You can bring an additional Autonomous Action Unit, or any other high attack special summon monster, to increase Vassal's attack to reach 10k damage, but it will have a higher risk of getting a bad draw.

Other useful cards

As I explained before, you can only bring back the necrofear which was special summoned successfully. Also you can't bring ha des since it cannot be done from graveyard. BTW, I play a different version of this deck and when I when I get from 7-8k assessment points.

1 des less makes this much more inconsistent. It is the crucial card in the deck.

Yeah but the thing is, you'll use destiny draw to take des counter, i think 2 is ok.

Cant help Bakura has annoying as heck decks :P
Anoymous 29days ago
Tried the destiny draw version for 10 times, 5 wins only. If you don't get Counterblow in starting hand and Bakura starts with Burning Land, it is difficult to heal your lifepoints.
would this work without mystical beast serket and temple of the kings?

It would have to because the card is bugged.
Could this deck work with Summoner of Illusions, Embodiment of Apophis and Gravekeeper's Vassal? I have 2 Union Attacks BTW
<< Anonymous
Stick To Serket Reply
I don't think that you have the luxury of protecting your Summoner of Illusions before it is being flipped. Bakura will certainly attack you and make it's effect useless.

Anoymous Reply can work, but you will need another card to help you, keeping inmind of ur 6limit of cards held + 3 spell/trap zone... an also dodging bakuras trap card (dont have 2 face down traps/spells at 1 time.

you can use dimensionhole to banish him face-down on your second to last turn and flip tribute him for BEUD

Temple of the Kings is bugged once again so keep a monster in hand in order to summon BEUD at the end of the duel.
