As Fyodor stepped into the auditorium, he was greeted by the ominous sound of organ playing. Down in the pit, a man in a thick jacket and large hair covered in a purple cap which appeared like the attribute circle for dark monsters. Upon arrival of the Ghoulish Rider, the organ playing had stopped and the man revealed himself.
His appearance was ominous, as he resembled the Player Killer of Darkness- shortened simply as Panik- who had allegedly gone missing twenty years ago during Pegasus's Duelist Kingdom Tournament, never to be seen again. Beforehand, however, he was known for his brutality in duels.
"Welcome, he who calls himself a servant of the dark lord. I have been waiting for you." he started. "I trust you've heard the news this morning. That is, the news about the rules changes. Your duel disk has, after all, already been modified for them." Panik stepped out of his piano bench and kicked it out of the pit before strapping a duel disk around his pelvis.
The doors suddenly closed, a clicking noise suggesting that they had become locked. "I was tasked to give out Link Monsters to all who I believed worthy, and I don't see anyone who would be more worthy than one who appreciates the powers of the Lightbringer. But! They also didn't say how I could deem one's worth and indeed, what should happen to those who aren't worthy. And as you'll soon find out, there is no getting out of this. You can either duel me, win, and get out, or you can stay in here and rot. Your choice." he laughed nefariously.
"I'll set the conditions. I chose the auditorium because it was modified to accommodate action duels, which I trust you know about. It will be solid vision with mass- meaning the pain from all my monsters will be all the more real. There will be no life points for this match. Instead, it will be an "I quit" match. Meaning the duel will only end when one of us says the words "I quit", and he who does not, will be the winner."@Zepavil
"You know what? I'll activate what I wanna activate! And you know what else? Archfiend Reverse's effect works on your turn too! I'll target itself for its ability, and thanks to that, you also tribute a monster!" Tsunozuka boasted angrily. A smoke cloud appeared over the two demons and when it finally subsided, the both of them had their necks in between scissor blades, before being cleanly chopped off in a manner that only computer graphics could produce, pixels and all.
"I'll choose Edge Imp Tomahawk, and it'll be added to my hand while Archfiend Reverse goes back to my Extra Deck. To my hand from my deck, thanks to Pandemonium, I'll also add Archfiend Atheling, and that means I can special summon it!" Tsunozuka appeared very smug at that point.
"Draw" he savored the moment, slowly taking his time to pull the card from his deck. "Heh. I don't need it anyway. Normal summon, Edge Imp Tomahawk! Level 2 tuner Red Resonator and Level 4 Edge Imp Tomahawk... SYNCHRO SUMMON! Everything it turned back. Return to me! Come, the barbarian barber of beelzebub! Level 6 Archfiend Reverse! I'll set a card and end my turn." he spat.
"Aren't you from the Stardust House? You should be a master of synchro summoning. Why aren't you using a Synchro monster?"@Scarifar
Before Carnel could end his turn, the man in the trench coat wagged his finger. One of his facedown cards was flipped face-up, Twin Twisters. "I'll discard one of my cards, and in return, I can destroy two of your spell or trap cards (whichever two)." he explained. "The card I discarded was Ojamagic, and when it goes from my hand or field from the graveyard, I can add one Ojama Yellow, one Ojama Green, and one Ojama Black from my deck to my hand." In that single move, he had taken out two of Carnel's cards and drawn three, all before even drawing a card.
