The sun rises so we can try once again.
Welcome back for today’s Creative Deck Profile, featuring the new The Winged Dragon of Ra Support from the upcoming Tin of the Pharaoh’s Gods – The True Sun God. This Continuous Spell, when activated, tutors any card that mentions The Winged Dragon of Ra, one of the original DIVINE/Divine-Beast monsters printed way back in the day. Ra is the one-punch finisher of the Egyptian Gods, allowing you to pay down to 100 LP to gain that much attack, so naturally his support suite tries to get you in a position where that is enough to win. So let’s talk about these support cards, shall we? Ancient Chant tutors a Ra from either your GY or Deck, plus giving you an additional Tribute Summon during the turn. This ensures consistency, while retaining your Normal Summon to get the 3 tributes onto the field to use to summon the Winged God. The other key support card from the prior support wave is Millenium Revelation, a Continuous Spell that lets you discard a Divine-Beast to tutor a Monster Reborn. Additionally, Revelation can send itself to the GY to let you summon The Winged Dragon of Ra with Monster Reborn during the turn. This comes in handy for the second effect of The True Sun God, enabling Ra’s alternate formes consistently.
The first alternate forme, named specifically in The True Sun God’s text, is The Winged Dragon of Ra – Immortal Phoenix. This 4000 ATK DIVINE monster summons itself from the GY when normal Ra is sent from the field to your GY. It’s unaffected by other card effects, and lets you pay 1000 LP to send a monster on the field to the GY. The Immortal Phoenix fades quickly however, as it returns itself to the GY during the End Phase to summon The Winged Dragon of Ra – Sphere Mode from hand/deck/GY. Sphere mode is more commonly used as a way to clear 3 monsters from your opponent’s board, but here it also serves as an alternative way to Special Summon The Winged Dragon of Ra. Between all these cards and the support of Angel 01 and Tellus the Little Angel, the Ra playstyle finally has enough cards to support itself, empowering a Sun God Unification to Blaze Cannon your way right through your opponents. And don’t forget the power of Soul Crossing as well – that Quick-Play Spell gives you the removal of Sphere Mode during either player’s turn! Pray for rebirth with the endless cycle of The True Sun God!
