Deck Guide – The Playing Image Centered New Cards

First off, let’s check the image of the combos centered around the new cards, with this Playing Guide!

Seize Victory With Tactics Centered Around Counter Traps!!

This Deck’s main tactics are center around monsters who get stronger and develop your field via Counter Traps, which disrupt your opponent’s moves, and to that point, this Deck includes many monsters whose effects are based on activating Counter Trap Cards, such as “Sacred Arch-Airknight Parshath”. This Deck’s trump card is the high level Fairy, “Sacred Arch-Airknight Parshath”, who not only can be Special Summoned by its own effect but with other cards such as “Valhalla, Hall of the Fallen” and “Athena”. By assembling high Level Fairies on your field, you’ll be able to control the flow of the Duel backed by Counter Traps and “Herald” monsters, allowing you to carve the shining path to victory.

The Sanctum of Parshath
Since it counts as “Sanctuary in the Sky” while on the field, “Minerva, Scholar of the Sky” can activate its “And~” effect!

Counter Traps and Heralds “Fulfill the Conditions for Activating the Effects” of “Minerva, Scholar of the Sky” and “Power Angel Valkyria”

Power Angel Valkyria adds “Heralds” and “Eva” from the Deck to the hand

Cards and Effects That Negate The Activation of Monster Effects, Spell and Trap Cards
