He summons Redox by banishing Debris and Blaster, searching a Flamvell Guard which he summons and uses to make a Thought Ruler Archfiend and attack into Jurrac Guaiba. Survival of the Fittest gives Guaiba a 1000atk boost making them crash and triggering Guaibas effect to summon Jurrac Velo.

He then uses the rest of the goat tokens and Formula Synchron to make a Catastor and destroy Davis' Scrap Dragon before passing his turn to Davis. Davis then activates Dragon Ravine's effect to send by discarding MST and sending a Tidal to grave. By banishing 2 Corsescas, Maxx C, and Scrap Dragon, Davis summons a Redox and a Tidal, which he overlays to make a Dracossack.

Davis then attacks over Jurrac Velo, getting Will a Jurrac Guaiba in attack position. He passes turn and Will draws another Rekindling. He attacks the set Legionnaire with Guaiba and gets to summon an Aielo, which he uses to revive Jurrac Velo. He overlays for a Dolkka, sets 2 to his backrow and normal summons at Fossil Dyna before ending.
Davis uses XYZ Encore on Evolzar Dolkka but Will doesn't get to summon his monsters back because of his Dyna. Davis then uses another Legionnaire to bring back Aklys and destroy Will's Dyna. He summons Tidal by banishing Redox and Corsesca, getting him another Redox. Upon attacking, Will flips Gozen Match and Davis sends Legionnaire to the grave. Will Draws and summons Jurrac Dino. On his Davis gets another Aklys off and gets rid of the Gozen before flipping Return and getting the hand shake.
