Hey guys. While I'm still busy to write up the "cards to look forward to" post, something came up of which I really, really wanted to make a post about.
And that news is... Kisara becomes an actual Yu-Gi-Oh card!
For the people among you that actually watched the original Yu-Gi-Oh! Card game anime, Kisara may be a familiar name. In the Egyptian story arc, she's namely the host of the Blue-Eyes White Dragon spirit. She's a crucial figure in the anime for (priest) Seto into obtaining the Blue-Eyes White Dragon.
Now, with the new Structure Deck coming out in the OCG upcoming June, I was secretly hoping that Konami would do something with Kisara. And look, they did!
The Blue-Eyed White Maiden
One of the new cards that will be in the BEWD-themed Structure Deck will be the Blue-Eyed White Maiden.
Next to the wonderful art, she also has this effect: When this card is targeted for an attack: Negate the attack, and if you do, change this card's battle position, then Special Summon 1 "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard. When this face-up card is targeted by a card effect: You can Special Summon 1 "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard. You can only use 1 "Blue-Eyed Maiden" effect per turn, and only once that turn.
So basically, if you dare do anything against this fair maiden, you will suffer the wrath of the Blue-Eyes White Dragon.
So, what else is there?
Other cards? There are other...? Oh, yeah... ahem...
Other new cards in this Structure Deck are the Blue-Eyed Silver Dragon and the Guard of the Storm Dragon.
Blue-Eyed Silver dragon is the first synchro in a Structure deck (no, I'm not counting Starter decks) and is basically the long-awaited synchro of Stone of White Legend and Blue-Eyes white Dragon (took em long enough). This card protects dragons and allows the special summon of Vanilla's from your grave (during your stand-by phase). I see this card being used in BEWD-decks (Captain obvious strikes again!), Hieratic decks (a free Wattail or Emerald dragon each stand-by phase) and of course... Gemini decks. You can revive any Gemini card from your grave, Gigaplant, Phoenix Gearfried... and Darkstorm Dragon!
Guard of Storm Dragon is a tuner, but also an equippable monster (which rides the previously mentioned Darkstorm Dragon (lol). He allows the monster it's equipped to to inflict piercing damage and protects it the same way a union monster does (I guess an effect/tuner/union monster would be to weird to write?).
And last but not least, the first announced reprints are great: Maxx "C", Fiendish Chain & Monster Reborn! If they throw Super Rejuvination in here as well, the pack is going to sell like hotcakes!
Now, let's go back to work. If I find some more free time (kind of busy), I'll give you that "cards to look forward to" post.
See ya. V out.
