Support Cards For “Crystal Beasts” Appear As SECE Japanese World Premiere Cards!
New Cards Appear That Make “Crystal Beasts” Even Stronger!
Among the Japanese World Premiere Cards (SECE-JP081~90) in “The Secret of Evolution” (SECE), which came out November 15th, includes powerful cards that support the “Crystal Beasts” and “Ultimate Crystal Gods” (Rainbow Dragon and Rainbow Dark Dragon)!
You can enjoy Special Summoning “Rainbow Dragon” just like in the anime, and aim to make your Deck even stronger with new Pendulum Monsters, Spells and Traps that have appeared, so let’s build a Deck that fits how you fight!
Over The Rainbow
(Quick-Play Spell Card)
If a monster under your control with “Rainbow Dragon” or “Rainbow Dark Dragon” as its original name activated its effect this turn: Special Summon any number of “Crystal Beast” monsters with different names from your Deck.
Pendulum Monsters Appear!
Here we’ll introduce you to two new Pendulum Monsters, “Crystal Vanguard” and “Crystal Protector“! Both have Monster and Pendulum Effects that support “Crystal Beast” Decks, and are powerful cards that help Special Summon and protect “Rainbow Dragon” and “Rainbow Dark Dragon”!
[Level 3 Spellcaster-Type ATK 1300/DEF 1000 Pendulum Scale: 5/5]
By Tributing itself, it can add either a “Rainbow Dragon” or “Rainbow Dark Dragon”, a “Crystal Beast” monster, or a “Crystal” Spell/Trap Card from the Deck to the hand! By adding “Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus” to your hand, you can bring out one Crystal Beast after another to your field, and once you have the seven “Crystal Beasts”, this guy can add “Rainbow Dragon” to your hand! Also its Pendulum Effect is strong, as it protects Rainbow Dragon monsters and Crystal Beast cards from being targeted by your opponent’s targeting effects!
[Level 4 Warrior-Type ATK 1500/DEF 1800 Pendulum Scale: 2/2]
Using its effect to Tribute itself in your hand or your side of the field, you can double a Crystal Beast’s ATK and DEF during battle with an opponent’s monster during damage calculation only, crushing your opponent! But the monster who recieves this effect is destroyed at the end of the Damage Step, but it makes for a perfect combo with putting “Crystal Beast” in the Spell & Trap Card Zone, which work in tandem with “Crystal” Spells and Traps! Also once per turn, its powerful Pendulum Effect protects “Rainbow Dragon”, “Rainbow Dark Dragon” (as monsters) and “Crystal Beast” cards from being destroyed effects!
If you place these two in your Pendulum Zones, you can Pendulum Summon multiple Level 3 and 4 monsters at the same time! Not only can you Pendulum Summon “Crystal Beasts”, it also allows you to capitalize on the fact Pendulum Monsters are sent to the Extra Deck when they’re sent from the field to the Graveyard! That means you can Pendulum Summon “Crystal Vanguard” every turn and use its effect, allowing you to add, from your Deck to your hand, the cards you need for your next combo, as you keep fighting on!
A Continuous Trap Card Appears That Helps Assemble The 7 Crystal Beasts!
[Continuous Trap Card]
Once per turn, when a face-up “Crystal Beast” monster you control is destroyed by battle or effect, you can use this card’s powerful effect to Special Summon a “Crystal Beast” from your Deck! It supports gathering the 7 “Crystal Beasts”! And, you can also make use of its powerful ability to return a “Crystal Beast” card and a card on the field to the hand! However, to use this ability, you need to send this face-up card to the Graveyard, so be sure to think whether or not to prioritize this effect or allowing for a steady stream of Special Summons!
Here, we’ll introduce you to a sample “Crystal Beast” Deck focused on Special Summoning “Rainbow Dragon”! You can replace cards according to the combos you like, using this as a reference, and go play! Revive, Rainbow Dragon!
