Strategy

  • Special summon Gate Guardian
  • You should be safe if you draw one of your “flip facedown” cards (Paleozoic Canadia, Floodgate Trap Hole or Ready for Intercepting)
  • If Arkana Summons Dark Magician, immediately flip it facedown before he has a chance to use Thousand Knives (you may need your toggle set to “ON” so you can chain Ready for Intercepting or Paleozoic Canadia)
  • Ideally you should aim to have 2 “flip facedown” cards at any time to play around Double Summon
  • Attack any facedown Dark Magician so he can’t flip it faceup next turn but don’t attack other Monsters as he’ll just draw more cards
  • Use your draw cards to finish the Duel quicker

Before Last Turn

  • Ensure you have a Paleozoic Canadia in the Graveyard and have either Ready for Intercepting or Jar of Greed/Legacy of Yata-Garasu set (if you have 2 cards in your Deck)

Last Turn

  • Activate (if necessary) Last Day of Witch to destroy all of Arkana’s Spellcaster Monsters so he can’t activate Dark Renewal
  • Special Summon Paleozoic Canadia in Attack position by either chaining to Ready for Intercepting, or Jar of Greed/Legacy of Yata-Garasu (activate it when you have one card in your Deck)
  • Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal and flip Gate Guardian face up if you activated Ready for Intercepting
  • Target Vassal with your two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures
  • Enter Battle Phase and swing for victory!

Replacements

  • You can replace one Paleozoic Canadia for Caligo Claw Crow
  • Legacy of Yata-Garasu and Jar of Greed can be replaced by other draw cards (filter by “Drawing” in the Card Editor) such as Shard of Greed, Good Goblin Housekeeping etc.

Risks

  • Unfortunately you can lose if you go second and he has Dark Renewal + Legion the Fiend Jester combo setup but it’s unlikely.
