Main Combo 1

Black Core (Dark Core) + Soul Release + Return from the Different Dimension

  • This combo will Banish your own Monsters from play using Black Core and Soul Release, and then return the Banished Monsters using Return from the Different Dimension all at once!

Two Cards Change Kaiba's Deck!

Pyramid of Light + Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon

  • Due to the two cards he obtained after his bout with Pegasus, Kaiba slightly changed the contents of his deck. He chose to go against Yuugi with his new deck. These cards replaced “Enemy Controller” and “Cloning (Clone Reproduction)” in his deck.

Main Combo 2

Obligatory Summon + Pyramid of Light + Cyclone (Mystical Space Typhoon)

  • This combo first summons any Gods that aren’t already on the Field using Obligatory Summon (there must be at least one God already on the Field for this to work), Banishes them using Pyramid of Light, and then clears the field completely using Cyclone.

Secret Combo

Lord of Dragon (Lord of D.) + Flute of Dragon Calling (The Flute of Summoning Dragon)

  • Special Summons the Blue-Eyes White Dragons by Summoning Lord of Dragon and using The Flute of Summoning Dragon. This powerful combo is built into Kaiba’s existing, normal and already-powerful deck.
