How is it going everyone, Patrick her with another Yugioh review from my friends at Konami. Today we have one of, in my opinion, the greatest sets to have come out in a very long time, Battle of Legends: Lights Revenge. This set comes with 5 cards per pack, 4 being super rare and the 5th is an ultra rare card. Besides it being an all holo set, it also provides a ton of great reprints and new cards that are introduced to the game. Some of the big cards in this set are Artifact Sanctum, Anti Spell Fragrance, Trishula, Psy-Framelord Omega, Denko Sekka, Sage with Eyes of Blue, Galactic Soldier and the most sought out Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn. This set also reprinted support for Raidraptors, Lightsworn and Timelords just to name a few. I wanna talk about a couple of cards that I thought were amazing and that needed to be mentioned in this review, hopefully these couple of cards are exactly what your looking for.
The first card I want to talk about is Zaphion the Timelord. Caption is a 10 star fairy type monster with both 0 atk and def. What I love about this card is it’s effect, which reads, ” Cannot be Special Summoned from the Deck. If you control nomonsters, you can Normal Summon this card without Tributing. Cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects. You take no battle damage from attacks involving this card. At the end of the Battle Phase, if this card battled: Shuffle all Spells and Traps your opponent controls into the Deck. If this card is sent from the fieldto the GY: You can draw 1 card. Once per turn, during yourStandby Phase: Shuffle this card into the Deck.” This card can single handily break your opponents plans or future moves that they were trying to pull off for their win. With Zaphion, your opponent would not dare attack you if they have anything worthwhile in the backrow. Another great thing about this card is that it can be splashed into almost any deck that you want backrow removal in, plus it’s recycling and drawing ability makes it even more versatile. I would say try to pick up at least a play set of Zaphion before he goes up in price.
The other card I want to talk about is Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn. The only other printing of this card was the prize card at the world championships, and even then it was saught out for many players Lightsworns deck. Minerva is a generic rank 4, with 2000 atk and 800 def and just like Zaphion, it has an amazing effect. It’s effect says, ” You can detach 1 material from this card; send the top 3 cards of your Deck to the GY, then draw cards equal to the number of “Lightsworn” cards sent to the GY by this effect. If this card is destroyed by battle, or if this card in its owner’s possessionis destroyed by an opponent’s card effect: You can send the top 3 cards of your Deck to the GY, then you can destroy cards on the field up to the number of “Lightsworn” cards sent to the GY by this effect. You can only use each effect of “Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn” once per turn.” Minerva obviously shines very bright in Lightsworns, but if there is a Lightsworn engine or need to mill cards, she is a great option for those decks as well. Her effect makes Lightsworns have an extra boss monster, plus that extra push and draw support it needs to push for games. With the explosive plays Lightsworns can do already plus her additional effects, I can see Lightsworns coming back on top during this upcoming Link format.
I had really enjoyed every card of this set, and I hope Konami keeps on producing these great sets out with competitive and expensive cards so that way Yugioh can be more affordable again. I highly recommend buying a few packs or even a box to get these amazing cards so you can add them to your collection. I really hope you enjoyed this review and hopefully persuaded you into getting a few packs for yourself. This is Patrick with yet another Yugioh review and as always Happy Dueling.
