"Then... there's only one thing
left to do... hnhnhnhn..."
Sinisquirrel (8:06:34 PM): "Decide who goes first?"
kwikkidus (8:06:49 PM): "Exactly. And this is always troublesome..."
kwikkidus (8:07:48 PM): "...Tell you what. Let's skip the formalities and let the cute one go first."
Sinisquirrel (8:08:42 PM): Either I accept that, or argue the point... which would be along the lines of, "Oh, no, you're the cute one..." Ech. "Hn. Draw six."
kwikkidus (8:08:57 PM): "As expected. Five."
Sinisquirrel (8:11:57 PM): "Vampire Knight." (1600/1000) The card shines, two lights glowing brightly on the hilt of its sword. "When this card is Normal Summoned, Flip Summoned, or Special Summoned, it gains two counters. It gains another counter when it deals Battle Damage, and has other additional effects... but none of those will happen this turn, so an explanation now is unnecessary."
Sinisquirrel (8:12:40 PM): A green-bordered card appears on Lily's backfield, a small, bat-winged demon peeking out from it slightly. "Gravekeeper's Servant." The back of a different card appears. "And one reverse. End turn."
kwikkidus (8:12:47 PM): "That makes it my move... draw!"
kwikkidus (8:13:19 PM): "Well... even though you have an impressive opening turn, I'm afraid all I can really muster is a defender, and an ended turn."
Sinisquirrel (8:14:12 PM): "Mm. Draw." Lily slides a card from the top of her deck.
Sinisquirrel (8:16:21 PM): "Vampire Lady." (1550/1550) The regal-looking Lady of the undead appears, her fanged mouth bearing a malicious smile. "Though I do realize that many defense-position monsters are done so rightfully, I feel I must wage the attack. Vampire Lady, first strike." The Lady leaps high, spreading her bat-like wings wide before coming down suddenly and striking the face-down defender with a small knife.
kwikkidus (8:16:54 PM): "A stunning lady, to be sure... best matched in kind. D. D. Warrior Lady!" (1500/1600) "Deflect the attack!"
Sinisquirrel (8:18:29 PM): The Lady is only slightly deflected, returning to her place on the field as Lily's Life Points dip. (7950) "Nnm. Either you run a deck revolving around Remove From Play, or you are running the standard kind of fare most easily found on the internet... from a few years ago. Either way, I end my turn."
kwikkidus (8:18:50 PM): "You'll see soon enough. I draw."
kwikkidus (8:19:13 PM): This is still no good... I'll have to go on the offensive.
kwikkidus (8:19:41 PM): But that reverse... too risky.
kwikkidus (8:20:03 PM): "Alright, here goes. I'll set another defender, and end my turn!"
Sinisquirrel (8:20:24 PM): "Draw." Lily appraises her hand. Mmn. This should do fine...
Sinisquirrel (8:22:45 PM): "First, I'll activate Card of Safe Return." The Spell Card shines and flickers in Lily's backfield.
kwikkidus (8:23:18 PM): "This is just a guess... but... your introverted and slightly creepy nature lends itself to the idea that this is a zombie deck after all, ne?"
Sinisquirrel (8:25:56 PM): "That is entirely correct." Lily holds up a card. "Zombie Master." (1800/0) The creepy, teenaged necromancer appears, eyes glowing. "Once per turn, I may use its effect to discard one Monster Card from my hand in order to Special Summon one Level 4 or lower Zombie monster from my Graveyard..."
kwikkidus (8:26:32 PM): "If only you had any, am I right?"
Sinisquirrel (8:27:08 PM): "If only I had." Lily shows Eon the monster card she has chosen to discard, sliding it into the Graveyard... wherein it immediately comes out again, and onto her field. "However, the monster I have chosen is a Level 4 or lower Zombie, so I can, and do, choose to summon it to the field. Soul-Absorbing Bone Tower, in defense." (400/1500)
Sinisquirrel (8:27:45 PM): Card of Safe Return glows. Lily quietly picks up the card she is allowed from the top of her deck, examining it before adding it to her hand.
kwikkidus (8:27:54 PM): "...So you draw a card..."
kwikkidus (8:28:28 PM): Four monsters already... why am I not surprised that this is going positively abysmally?
Sinisquirrel (8:28:56 PM): "And now we'll see if you choose to use your Warrior Lady's effect... Zombie Master, attack."
kwikkidus (8:29:28 PM): "If my monster is going down... you're daft if you think I won't take you right along with it. Remove the both of them from play!"
Sinisquirrel (8:30:05 PM): Zombie Master disappears with the Warrior Lady. "It matters not to me. The Lady will see what other you've decided to put for your line of defense." Again, the Lady takes a leap for another face-down hazard.
kwikkidus (8:30:32 PM): "...Card Trooper. When destroyed, I draw a card."
Sinisquirrel (8:31:47 PM): "I see..." Card Trooper's effect allows it to power itself up by removing cards from play directly from the top of the deck. That indicates that this is indeed one revolving around that zone... this could be dangerous. However, he chose not to use that effect, despite how easily it could have taken my Life Points had it done so. Could it be he is afraid of my face-down card from the first turn? It must be. I have to rely on that. "Vampire Knight, directly."
kwikkidus (8:32:31 PM): (6400) "Ghh..." He holds up an arm over his visible eye, hair fluttering slightly. Going horribly already... why am I not surprised. Come on, I need a big turn.
Sinisquirrel (8:32:44 PM): Lily presses on. "Spell Card."
kwikkidus (8:33:06 PM): "So I discard one now, eh?"
Sinisquirrel (8:34:00 PM): Lily begins to finish off the description of Vampire Knight's effect that she had started in the first turn. "Of your choosing, from your Deck to the Graveyard... also, my Knight gains one counter from its strike." The vampire gains another glow on the hilt of its sword. "For every two counters it has, you send that many of the same type as I've called to the Graveyard... but since it only holds three, you are safe at one, this time."
kwikkidus (8:34:09 PM): He shows a copy of Dimension Fusion, before sliding it into his graveyard. "Well... that's alright. I didn't need that one anyway."
Sinisquirrel (8:34:32 PM): "End turn."
kwikkidus (8:34:42 PM): "Draw."
kwikkidus (8:34:53 PM): Idea. <3
kwikkidus (8:35:02 PM): "I activate the spell card Soul Absorption!"
kwikkidus (8:36:01 PM): "Next, another spell card! I activate Reasoning! Now, you just have to pick a level, and I have to pray it's not the level of the next monster I pick up...
Sinisquirrel (8:36:13 PM): "Four."
kwikkidus (8:36:27 PM): "I see... how predictable. Let's see..."
kwikkidus (8:36:42 PM): He picks up his top card. "...Huh. Magical Merchant. Defense mode." (200/700)
kwikkidus (8:37:04 PM): "Next, I play a second copy of Reasoning!"
Sinisquirrel (8:37:16 PM): "Four, again."
kwikkidus (8:37:45 PM): "Heavy Storm, Chaos End, Soul Absorption, Reasoning, and... Bazoo the Soul Eater. All to the graveyard." A sigh.
Sinisquirrel (8:38:13 PM): "Although it is not nearly as exciting, there is sometimes a point in choosing the predictable..."
kwikkidus (8:38:37 PM): "I'll set a defender, and my turn is over." He puts it facedown. "... Now go, ne? This is starting to get irritating."
Sinisquirrel (8:39:42 PM): "Very well... draw."
Sinisquirrel (8:41:06 PM): "Hmmn... Tell me, Eon-kun... What Monsters are there in your Graveyard?"
kwikkidus (8:41:24 PM): "A Card Trooper and a Bazoo the Soul-Eater. Why do you ask?"
Sinisquirrel (8:42:31 PM): "Because it will become useful for me to know in just a moment."
kwikkidus (8:43:11 PM): She called me kun. That patronizing little...
Sinisquirrel (8:44:10 PM): "I will tribute my fair Lady to summon Ryu Kokki in attack mode." (2400/2000) "Then, a Spell Card-- Fobidden Magic - Book of Life." A large, forboding tome opens in front of Lily.
kwikkidus (8:44:21 PM): "...Ohdear."
Sinisquirrel (8:44:52 PM): "I will target your Soul Eater to revive Vampire Lady..." (1550/1550) The Lady appears again, her smile somehow even more poisonous than before.
Sinisquirrel (8:45:26 PM): "Do you know what happens now?"
kwikkidus (8:45:42 PM): "Approximately." (6900)
Sinisquirrel (8:46:26 PM): "First, her Special Summon activates the effect of my Tower... Two cards from the top of your deck, please."
kwikkidus (8:46:55 PM): Magical merchant and Macro Cosmos are sent to the grave.
Sinisquirrel (8:47:03 PM): "Then, I may draw one..." Lily again slides the top card from her Deck into her hand with the activation of Card of Safe Return.
Sinisquirrel (8:47:51 PM): "..." She gives a small, almost happy smile as she hears a noise that Eon won't. "Good. Now... Ryu Kokki, to the face-down defender."
kwikkidus (8:48:29 PM): "..." He grins, just a little, as the monster flips up. "Morphing Jar, number two."
kwikkidus (8:49:11 PM): "When you attacked it, you activated its special ability..." The monsters on the field are sucked into a whirlwind going back into the jar. "And you're going to be giving us both a shiney new field of defenders. Yours is going to be larger, of course."
Sinisquirrel (8:49:25 PM): "Mn. I understand." Her four Zombies disappear back into her deck.
kwikkidus (8:49:51 PM): "Gren Maju Da Eiza. Set in defense mode." Yet again, it's his first card.
Sinisquirrel (8:53:47 PM): It is Lily's turn to begin the task of drawing, setting, and discarding. "Discarding Dark Bribe. Setting Vampire Solider. Discarding Vampire Magician and Gravekeeper's Servant. Setting Vampire Lady and Vampire Knight."
kwikkidus (8:57:12 PM): "Anything else from you, Lily-chan?"
Sinisquirrel (8:57:23 PM): '-chan...?' "There... is nothing more I can do. End turn."
kwikkidus (8:57:33 PM): "I draw."
kwikkidus (8:58:53 PM): "..." he stares at the card, sighs, and sets one on his duel disk. "Excavation From the Different Dimension. For 1000 life points, I can return two cards from my removed from play zone to my hand. With only two there, it's not hard to guess..." (5900)
kwikkidus (8:59:08 PM): "Bazoo the Soul-Eater! I summon you in attack mode!" (1600/900)
kwikkidus (9:00:10 PM): "Now... I remove from play Card Trooper, Mgical Merchant, and also the Morphing Jar, to power it up to 2500 attack points." (7400)
Sinisquirrel (9:00:22 PM): Lily is already doing the math, knowing that Gren Maju da Eiza is sitting face-down on the field. It is not a problem, yet, but it will be if I don't act upon it as soon as possible. But that Beast...
kwikkidus (9:00:46 PM): "..." He eyes her backfield. "...Still too risky. My turn'll end here."
Sinisquirrel (9:01:23 PM): "Draw." So, my assumption before was right. Though he clearly has the upper hand in ATK points, he refuses to do so because of that one card. On the one hand, I should be glad that he's hesitant, but on the other... Had she expected more? It seems like she had.
Sinisquirrel (9:03:32 PM): It seems as though I can't attack that monster this turn... I have nothing in my deck that can trump its ATK. However...
Sinisquirrel (9:04:27 PM): "How many of your cards are currently removed from play?"
kwikkidus (9:04:31 PM): "Three."
Sinisquirrel (9:04:43 PM): "And your Graveyard?"
kwikkidus (9:05:33 PM): "None."
kwikkidus (9:05:33 PM): "Oh, Cards, not monsters..."
kwikkidus (9:05:35 PM): "Nine."
Sinisquirrel (9:05:54 PM): "Monsters, for the case of your Graveyard."
Sinisquirrel (9:06:10 PM): "But that is fine, for the moment..."
Sinisquirrel (9:08:57 PM): "I will set a defender, and flip my Vampire Soldier to attack." (1500/1200) "He will attack the face-down Gren Maju da Eiza that, as it stands, should be too weak to withstand it..."
kwikkidus (9:09:14 PM): "...That it is... You've destroyed it."
Sinisquirrel (9:09:27 PM): "Excellent. End turn."
kwikkidus (9:09:45 PM): "My turn, then! I draw!"
Sinisquirrel (9:10:25 PM): It could be that I will win this battle Lily thinks to herself as she watches Eon's turn. If I do, one could say that having him on our side won't be much if more dueling is involved; however, I think there is something else we could do, if we had to. No, I'm certain of it. But I have to see him break out at his best, first.
kwikkidus (9:10:49 PM): He eyes the card he just picked up, sweatdropping yet AGAIN. "...Nngh... Bazoo removes Gren Maju from play to power up." (1900) (7900) "Next, I will set a defender." The monster flashes.
kwikkidus (9:11:27 PM): "...Now..." He points at the knight. "I'm done waiting around. Bazoo the Soul Eater! Destroy the Knight!"
Sinisquirrel (9:12:59 PM): (7450) "Firstly, your attack costs you one card..." Gravekeeper's Servant shines.
Sinisquirrel (9:13:30 PM): "Secondly, the destruction of one of my Zombie cards allows me to activate that face-down you've been dreading... Gravekeeper's Adept!" The card that had lay dormant for so long finally flipped up, a red-colored demon resembling the one on Gravekeeper's Servant appearing. "When a Zombie monster on my side of field is destroyed as a result of battle, you remove one card from the top of your Deck to the Graveyard."
kwikkidus (9:15:05 PM): "Helios the Primordial Sun moves to the graveyard... and another..." Sigh.
Sinisquirrel (9:15:45 PM): "As a third effect, I may add one monster that includes "Vampire" in its name from my deck to my hand."
Sinisquirrel (9:16:02 PM): She shows him Vampire Lord before adding it to her hand.
kwikkidus (9:16:39 PM): "...Nnghh..." He grimaces slightly.
Sinisquirrel (9:16:50 PM): "That is all for the aftermath."
kwikkidus (9:17:41 PM): "...Heh... Well, I haven't lost yet... I guess... my turn's over!"
Sinisquirrel (9:17:50 PM): "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (9:20:03 PM): "First, I will take the liberty of flip summoning my Needle Worm. Josephine! I'm counting on you!" Screh! (750/600) The small, pin-lined insect jumps up.
kwikkidus (9:20:33 PM): "Card Destruction, Gren Maju, Soul Release, Gustaph, and Macro Cosmos..."
Sinisquirrel (9:20:57 PM): "Duly noted."
Sinisquirrel (9:23:03 PM): "I will then flip over all of my other cards as well." Vampire Lady (1550/1550), Vampire Knight (1600/1000). Two counters shine on the Knight. "I will then sacrifice Josephine to bring out the Vampire Lord I'd shown you before..." (2000/1500)
kwikkidus (9:23:19 PM): "..." Sweatdrop. "Greeeat."
Sinisquirrel (9:23:42 PM): "And to finish my Main Phase... Forbidden Magic - Book of Life." Again, the green tome opens before Lily, it's dark magic spewing forth.
Sinisquirrel (9:25:38 PM): "I'll target your Gren Maju da Eiza to remove it from play... and summon a card that, thanks to your Morphing Jar #2, allowed it to be put into an excellent position for me... Vampire Magician." (2450/1800)
kwikkidus (9:26:05 PM): (8400) "...Well. This is simply lovely."
Sinisquirrel (9:26:27 PM): "Isn't it..." Card of Safe Return flashes. She draws one.
Sinisquirrel (9:27:01 PM): "Vampire Magician will kindly eradicate your Soul-Eater..."
kwikkidus (9:27:23 PM): "I'd say I was surprised, but..." He sighs heavily. "Well, I'm not. This deck of mine always betrays me." It's blown away. (7850)
Sinisquirrel (9:27:34 PM): "Spell Card."
kwikkidus (9:28:00 PM): Mystical Space Typhoon appears, and is tossed to the grave.
Sinisquirrel (9:28:13 PM): "Vampire Lord to your defender."
kwikkidus (9:28:22 PM): "Magical Merchant's effect activates."
kwikkidus (9:28:37 PM): "...You know it already, ne? Then let's skip to the main show."
kwikkidus (9:28:57 PM): He picks up his first card... and grins. "Soul Release. And not a moment too soon."
Sinisquirrel (9:29:37 PM): "Despite what you've said of your deck, am I right?" She pauses. "Vampire Lady."
kwikkidus (9:30:24 PM): (6300) "Declare your card."
Sinisquirrel (9:30:28 PM): "Spell."
kwikkidus (9:30:35 PM): "As I thought... I choose Lightning Vortex."
Sinisquirrel (9:30:48 PM): "Excellent. And Vampire Knight."
Sinisquirrel (9:31:08 PM): "Spell Card."
kwikkidus (9:31:49 PM): (4700) "Aria from Beyond... to the grave."
Sinisquirrel (9:32:07 PM): "I can safely say that sufficiently ends my turn."
kwikkidus (9:32:16 PM): "...Then it's mine. Draw!"
kwikkidus (9:32:36 PM): "Next, I activate the spell card Soul Release! It's time to remove five cards from play!"
Sinisquirrel (9:32:52 PM): "And what will you choose...?"
kwikkidus (9:33:56 PM): "Lightning Vortex... Heavy Storm... Mystical Space Typhoon... Card Destruction... and Magical Merchant." (7200)
kwikkidus (9:34:53 PM): "Next, I activate the spell card known as Aria from Beyond. This card allows me to activate the effect of any spell card that's been removed from play... and today only, I choose to activate Lightning Vortex!"
Sinisquirrel (9:35:25 PM): "Hn... a typically excellent choice..." All of Lily's Zombies are destroyed.
kwikkidus (9:35:47 PM): "...Don't smirk like that."
Sinisquirrel (9:36:39 PM): "I'm sure you'd like to know at this time that Vampire Magician's effect allows me to select one "Vampire" monster from my Graveyard at this time..."
kwikkidus (9:36:49 PM): "Please... continue."
Sinisquirrel (9:37:24 PM): "I choose Vampire Knight."
kwikkidus (9:37:35 PM): "And then it is summoned?"
Sinisquirrel (9:37:41 PM): "In my next Standby Phase."
kwikkidus (9:38:04 PM): "Well then... I play Excavation from the Different Dimension next!" (6200) He flashes Gren Maju Da Eiza and Heavy Storm.
kwikkidus (9:38:20 PM): "Now, I activate Heavy Storm!"
Sinisquirrel (9:38:23 PM): "Of course..."
kwikkidus (9:38:57 PM): "This Gren is the one you removed from play... with Book of Life! And I summon it to the field, with eight cards gone this time!" (3200/3200)
Sinisquirrel (9:40:24 PM): "And I suppose you have enough confidence to actually strike me, now."
kwikkidus (9:41:34 PM): "Normally I don't hit girls... but this time, I'm in. Gren Maju! Bolt from Beyond Hell!" He points right at her, and the demon forms a ball of nothing in its hand, shards of it flying forward at Lily.
Sinisquirrel (9:42:54 PM): Lily braces herself as the shards fly through her. (4250) "It's good to see you can eventually muster some manner of spine... once the opponent's field is completely gone..."
kwikkidus (9:43:04 PM): "My turn... is over." He's panting slightly. ...This feeling... I might actually win?
Sinisquirrel (9:43:14 PM): "Draw."
kwikkidus (9:43:33 PM): "Hey. Lily." Oh my. No honoriffic at all. And in... English? "Just because I'm a loser... doesn't mean I'll accept it anymore."
Sinisquirrel (9:44:28 PM): "Do not address me so informally." Lily replies back, also in English, though heavily accented. "You had several chances to strike earlier, but didn't take them for the fear of one face-down card. I took several and held the advantage. Even if I lose now, at least I can say I've given it my all... and I would never blamed my deck for my poor performance."
Sinisquirrel (9:45:49 PM): "Vampire Lord and Vampire Knight are Special Summoned to the field. I will have them take the defensive..." (1500) (100)
Sinisquirrel (9:46:01 PM): "And I will set one defender in addition. End turn."
kwikkidus (9:46:10 PM): "Draw!"
kwikkidus (9:46:50 PM): "Now, I summon D.D. Warrior Lady! Gren Maju... the Vampire Knight! And Warrior Lady, end the Lord!"
Sinisquirrel (9:47:35 PM): Both are destroyed.
kwikkidus (9:47:45 PM): "...My turn is over..."
Sinisquirrel (9:47:54 PM): "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (9:50:02 PM): It's too bad... There isn't anything in my deck or Graveyard that can match that card power for power... It's a Fiend as well... At this point, the best I can do is to attempt to deck him out.
Sinisquirrel (9:52:39 PM): "One defender. End turn."
kwikkidus (9:53:07 PM): "Draw!"
kwikkidus (9:54:33 PM): "D.D. Warrior Lady... attack that old defender!"
Sinisquirrel (9:54:45 PM): "Akira!" It's another Needle Worm.
kwikkidus (9:55:09 PM): Morphing Jar, Gustaph, two Banisher of the Radiance, and Bazoo all fall to the grave. "Gren Maju! The other!"
Sinisquirrel (9:55:26 PM): Vampire Soldier dies. Lily begins selecting her card thanks to its effect. She shows him Vampire Assassin.
kwikkidus (9:56:35 PM): Eleven cards left... And my hand is... He eyes it. ...Well... this position is very dangerous all-around. "My turn ends here! Your move!"
Sinisquirrel (9:56:47 PM): "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (9:58:20 PM): This isn't good... at this rate, I'm going to have to attack him as best I can... "Forbidden Magic - Book of Life."
Sinisquirrel (9:59:13 PM): "Helios, the Primordial Sun... for my Vampire Magician." (2450/1800)
kwikkidus (9:59:41 PM): "That only powers up my Gren Maju da Eiza more!" (3600)
Sinisquirrel (9:59:50 PM): "I am aware."
kwikkidus (10:00:03 PM): "So then... you're going to attack my Warrior Lady?"
Sinisquirrel (10:00:37 PM): "Quite, though I'm aware of the consequence of that, too. Vampire Magician, attack D. D. Warrior Lady!"
kwikkidus (10:01:34 PM): (5250) The lady is destroyed. "Remove the both of them from play!"
Sinisquirrel (10:01:55 PM): "A Spell Card... and one defender to end my turn."
kwikkidus (10:02:39 PM): "...Ahh..." He fans his deck out.
kwikkidus (10:03:00 PM): "Soul Absorption, to the grave."
kwikkidus (10:03:55 PM): "Now... I draw."
kwikkidus (10:05:20 PM): "...Two monsters removed from play for you... Seven from me... that makes nine, ne?"
Sinisquirrel (10:05:53 PM): "It does."
kwikkidus (10:05:55 PM): "I summon Helios - The Primordial Sun. Attack mode!"
kwikkidus (10:06:59 PM): "Next... I'll tribute her... and special summon Helios Duo Megistus to the field! Nine times two-hundred makes 1800 attack points... to pair with Gren Maju's 4000!"
kwikkidus (10:08:46 PM): "Helios Duo Megistus. Attack her defender!"
Sinisquirrel (10:11:23 PM): Sangan dies. Lily fetches Cyber Jar and shows it to Eon before adding it to her hand.
kwikkidus (10:11:48 PM): "...I see. Gren Maju! Bolt from Beyond Hell!"
Sinisquirrel (10:13:22 PM): Lily again allows the shards to freely pierce through her. (250)
kwikkidus (10:13:08 PM): "Is this... the sort of duel you were after?" He grins slightly, twirling his hair. "One reverse card... and I'm done for now!"
Sinisquirrel (10:13:22 PM): "It is... and it isn't. Draw."
Sinisquirrel (10:14:00 PM): "One defender. End turn."
kwikkidus (10:14:22 PM): "...Draw."
kwikkidus (10:15:29 PM): "Your reverse card... well, it doesn't matter what I do with my monsters... if they're still here, Cyber Jar ends them. So..." He places a card into his duel disk. "Chaos End!"
kwikkidus (10:15:47 PM): "When I have at least seven cards removed from play... I can destroy every monster on the field instantly!"
Sinisquirrel (10:16:50 PM): "Saa..." Indeed, her lone destroyed monster was the Cyber Jar she had picked just before. Perhaps I should have set that Trap as well... though his confidence now may have allowed him to get past the bluff... there is no reason to think of it now, though. It's done.
kwikkidus (10:17:04 PM): "...Next... Magical Merchant! Attack mode!" (200/700)
kwikkidus (10:17:24 PM): "It's not quite enough... but..." He points at her. "It'll have to do! Direct attack!"
Sinisquirrel (10:17:31 PM): Lily grimaces as the mutated insect attacks her. (50)
kwikkidus (10:17:40 PM): "My turn's over now."
Sinisquirrel (10:17:46 PM): "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (10:19:52 PM): "One reverse card... and one defender. End turn."
kwikkidus (10:19:57 PM): "Draw!"
kwikkidus (10:20:34 PM): He sets a monster on the field, as Merchant moves to defense mode. "...I can't do anything just yet... make your move."
Sinisquirrel (10:20:43 PM): "Draw."
Sinisquirrel (10:21:15 PM): "One defender. One reverse. End turn."
kwikkidus (10:21:33 PM): "Draw."
kwikkidus (10:21:33 PM): "Banisher of the Radiance. Attack mode." (1600/0)
kwikkidus (10:21:56 PM): "Banisher! Attack the new defender!"
Sinisquirrel (10:22:41 PM): Soul-Absorbing Bone Tower dies.
kwikkidus (10:23:00 PM): "I End!"
Sinisquirrel (10:23:22 PM): "Draw..."
Sinisquirrel (10:23:36 PM): "One defender. End turn."
kwikkidus (10:23:50 PM): "Draw!"
kwikkidus (10:24:27 PM): "I summon Gren Maju da Eiza in attack mode!"
kwikkidus (10:24:58 PM): "Banisher... attack the old defender!"
Sinisquirrel (10:25:28 PM): Vampire Assassin dies and is removed from play.
kwikkidus (10:25:46 PM): "..." He thinks for a moment. "...No. I end my turn." If that's a needle worm...
Sinisquirrel (10:26:08 PM): "..." So, again... hesitation. I am beginning to hate that... "Draw."
kwikkidus (10:26:36 PM): I've only got five cards left. If I did... and it was Needle Worm... I'd lose on my next draw. I... I know just what to do.
Sinisquirrel (10:27:10 PM): "Eon-kun... how many cards do you have left in your deck as of this very moment?"
kwikkidus (10:27:35 PM): "Five cards are left in my deck. If that reverse is a Needle Worm, I've just lost this duel, right here."
kwikkidus (10:27:45 PM): "...I'm willing to bet it is."
Sinisquirrel (10:27:46 PM): "And if it isn't...?"
kwikkidus (10:27:55 PM): "If it isn't, then I win on my next turn."
Sinisquirrel (10:28:21 PM): "Would you hesitate if I didn't flip this card over?"
kwikkidus (10:29:08 PM): "Not for a second. The only reason I hesitated this turn is because I made an error. Magical Merchant and my Banisher of the Light are both in defense mode." He nods at them. "I couldn't finish you off right then... the attack would be meaningless."
kwikkidus (10:29:25 PM): "Either way... it all comes down to that defender. Summon your Needle Worm and end it."
Sinisquirrel (10:29:57 PM): "Do you know that's what it is? In the same way that you knew my original face-down card was too dangerous to warrant an attack?"
kwikkidus (10:30:51 PM): "...I'm sure that you have everything you need to defeat me, right now, this turn... because I'm going to win."
Sinisquirrel (10:32:40 PM): "You say your deck hates you, but you expect it to win for you... You have the flair, the potential... but that is all. Flip Summon... Needle Worm. Hiroshi!" The last of Lily's Needle Worms flips over, 'screh'-ing loudly.
kwikkidus (10:32:52 PM): "...I chain!"
kwikkidus (10:33:29 PM): "Fiend Comedian... its effect activates. Now, a coin is flipped."
Sinisquirrel (10:33:37 PM): "It is not... I chain as well! Dark Bribe!"
kwikkidus (10:34:26 PM): "...I draw.
kwikkidus (10:34:42 PM): "Then, my final four cards are removed from the game."
kwikkidus (10:35:06 PM): Gren Maju (6000/6000)
Sinisquirrel (10:35:57 PM): "Hiroshi... you've done well. I tribute my Worm for Ryu Kokki..." (2400/2000) "It it nowhere near as powerful as your monster, and there is no hope for you to win at this point, but..." Lily shrugs. "I just like it."
Sinisquirrel (10:36:01 PM): "End turn."
kwikkidus (10:36:25 PM): "...I draw." His hand touches the empty deck slot. "And that... is my loss."
Sinisquirrel (10:37:19 PM): Lily's cards fade from the field. "It wasn't what I expected; however... a deal is a deal. I've won, so your contract is now mine. After the Order is eradicated, we will determine and execute your payment. Agreed?"
