He played D.D.R. – Different Dimension Reincarnation next, discarding Redox to return Tempest to the field! He Xyz Summoned his own Big Eye in defense position, stole Boyajian’s Big Eye with it, then used that to steal a Mecha Phantom Beast Token. He discarded two copies of Redox for its effect, reviving one of them. He paired that with Corseca to bring out Crimson Blader! Blader destroyed Dracossack in battle, then revived Blaster in Main Phase 2.
