Lumis And Umbra Anime Deck


In the second edition of our anime deck series, we’ll be taking a look at the decks used by Lumis And Umbra from the second season of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, Battle City,  and trying our best to come up with the most optimal deck from the cards they used. Since they only dueled once as a team in the anime, we will be combining their decks into one for the purpose of this project.


Lumis And Umbra Anime Deck Profile


Lumis And Umbra are duelists working for Marik Ishtar and members of the evil group known as the Rare Hunters, appearing in Battle City. Lumis And Umbra are tag-team specialist duelists and were tasked by Marik to defeat Yugi and Seto Kaiba and take their Egyptian God Cards. Their decks were carefully built specifically to prevent Yugi and Kaiba from summoning Obelisk and Slifer, using some of the powerful Mask Cards, such as “Mask Of Restrict” to stop Yugi and Kaiba from tribute summoning their mighty Egyptian God Monsters.


Here are a few pointers about our anime deck series before we begin:


We will only be using cards a character used or had in their deck in the anime for our series, and the yugioh fandom site to cross-check the cards used.

We will do everything we can to avoid adding duplicates of cards a character used, unless they used multiple copies of course.

We aim to strike a fine balance between monsters, spell and traps, so we will aim for 20 monsters, 10 spells and 10 traps, if it can be achieved.

Where a character has less than 40 cards, we will then use multiple copies of cards they used, always trying to keep a balanced card ratio in their deck.

Certain cards in our decks have anime exclusive effects (anime cards) which differ from the TCG.  All anime exclusive cards will have “anime” next to their name in the card list below.  (For example, in the anime, Thousand Dragon was played as a main deck monster but in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG, it’s treated as a fusion monster)

So here we go for our best attempt at the most competitive Lumis And Umbra Battle City deck.
