Playmaker Normal Summons "Poisoning Blocker" (0/1400). Playmaker activates the effect of "Poisoning Blocker", changing it from Attack Position to Defense Position, then increasing its ATK and DEF by 800. Playmaker sets two cards and ends his turn.
Turn 2: Earth
Earth activates the Spell Card "Cost Down", discarding a card to reduce the Levels of all monsters in his hand by 2, even after they are summoned. He discards "G Golem Rock Hammer". Earth Normal Summons the now Level 4 "G Golem Rock Hammer" (1800/2400). Earth activates the effect of "Rock Hammer", Tributing it to Special Summon three "G Golem Token" (0/0) in Defense Position. Earth uses the three "G Golem Tokens" to Link Summon "G Golem Invalid Dolmen" (2800/←↑→) to the Extra Monster Zone. "Invalid Dolmen" attacks "Poisoning Blocker". If "Invalid Dolmen" attacks a Defense Position monster, its effect allows it to inflict piercing battle damage to Playmaker. The attack continues and "Poisoning Blocker" is destroyed (Playmaker: 4000 → 3400 LP). Earth ends his turn.
Turn 3: Playmaker
Playmaker draws and subsequently Normal Summons "Bitron". Playmaker uses "Bitron" to Link Summon "Zombie Prosaber" (1600/↑) to the zone the top-center Link Arrow of "Invalid Dolmen" points to. "Zombie Prosaber" attacks "Invalid Dolmen". During damage calculation, a Link Monster that was Link Summoned this turn battles a monster, Playmaker activates his face-down Trap Card "Link Rush", destroying the monster that is battling that Link Monster. "Invalid Dolmen" is destroyed. As a monster Earth controlled that "Zombie Prosaber" pointed to was destroyed by battle or card effect, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning that monster, but as "Invalid Dolmen" was destroyed, Earth activates its effect, negating the effects of all face-up cards Playmaker controls. The effect of "Zombie Prosaber" does not resolve. Playmaker ends his turn.
Turn 4: Earth
