Tether of Defeat (skill)

Duel Links Top Story
Upcoming new cards!?!
update 07/04/2017


Great for Beatdown and Mill hybrid decks. Very flexible skill as you can choose whether to thin your deck or mill your opponent's deck when you destroy your opponent's monster.


Can be used when one of the opponent's monster is destroyed in battle. The top card from either your or your opponent's deck is sent to the graveyard.

Rating and explanation

This skill may potentially be top-tier. The only flaw that it has is that your opponent's monsters must be destroyed by battle to activate this skill. So it is difficult to activate this skill if your opponent is running cards that forbid you to destroy their monsters. Cards like Mirror Wall and Windstorm of Etaqua are commonly used in most beatdown decks which prevents you to destroy their monsters.

3SD is no match for the legendary top tier Tether of Defeat. But for real I have no idea how anyone thinks this skill is good rn LOL

This skill should be able to be used from the Battle Phase, not the Main Phase...OF THE NEXT TURN, to be best effective but still my legit fav skill.

And everyone claiming OP, it's not, it really isn't. Just be glad it isn't as "OP" as it SHOULD be.

My god, today was the first time I played against someone using this skill, how can they allow this fucked up skills? 3SD, this shit and the one from keith that steals one of your trap cards, like really? shitty skills need to be thrown in the trash

Not many people use the latter 2 skills, though ToD is more popular with Vampire Lord (I do use Bandit, and it would be very powerful if the activation condition wasn't so harsh). 3SD is very popular though.

Does this skill allow you to tribe set or did I get cheated somehow

Played against a couple decks and it feels busted as hell. He just discarded all of my answers and steamrolled my board
Should Tether be ignoring the effects of cards it sends to the graveyard? This feels like a bug.
Some guy
This is bakura's only normal skill (ie non drop skill that you gotta randomly find from legendary duelist) that's actually decent.
compensation and draw sense dark are just awful. They gave bakura crappy normal skills apart from this one.
This skill is too op. Bakura can get lucky with a good starting hand and its snowballed thereafter. This skill disrupt any chance for opponent comeback. Its unfair especially for decks that required stalling to work. Give this skill more limitations please.
Where does it say that?
Does not work for me - it says, you have to lose 1000 life points. Not as described here... this makes it less playable, imo!
