A new DARK Machine builds off the momentum of Savage Strike’s Pot of Extravagance: with 2450 ATK, you can Special Summon it from your hand or Graveyard as a Quick Effect by banishing 8 cards from the top of your Deck. From there you can banish cards from your Extra Deck to destroy opposing monsters. A new LIGHT Fairy lets you Tribute to search your Deck for other monsters regardless of their Type, Attribute or Level. And a powerful new Trap Card kicks Special Summoned monsters back to your opponent’s Deck two at a time, demolishing your opponent’s biggest set-ups! Rising Rampage is packed with theme support for classic Decks and modern strategies alike, but it’s also got plenty of new thrills you can play anywhere.
