It’s a Yu-Gi-Oh! GX fan’s greatest dream come true! After years of needing their own individual Decks to survive, the three Sacred Beasts have been united under a single banner in Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts!
Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts includes more ways than ever to Summon the three Sacred Beasts! Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder and Uria, Lord of Searing Flames each receive cards that modify their Summoning requirements to make them easier to fulfill and help you mount a second or third strike if the first isn’t enough. Alternatively, you can skip those requirements altogether with a new monster that can be Tributed to Summon any of the three Sacred Beasts from your hand and then banished from the Graveyard to add the dominating Fallen Paradise Field Spell to your hand!
In addition to increasing your access to the Sacred
Beasts and your ability to Summon them, Structure
Deck: Sacred Beasts also increases the dominance of Sacred Beasts once they
reach the field! You’ll be able to double Raviel,
Lord of Phantasms ATK to 8000 and crush all your opponent’s monsters in a
single Battle Phase, negateyour opponent’s Spell/Trap
effects while you control Hamon, Lord of
Striking Thunder in Attack Position,
and do a little creative accounting to power up Uria, Lord of Searing Flames far beyond its natural limitations.
Of course, it’s not enough to just command multiple
Sacred Beasts throughout the course of a Duel. The truest form of Dueling
dominance is to control multiple Sacred Beasts at the same time, and Structure Deck: Sacred Beasts rewards
you for doing so! Control 2 or more at the same time, and a brand-new Trap Card
will negate the activated effects of every monster your opponent controls.
Sacred Beasts contains 46 cards total (44-card Main Deck, 2-card Extra
Deck) as well as 2 different Token Cards:
5 Ultra Rares
3 Super Rares
2 Token Cards
1 Double-sided Deluxe Game Mat/Dueling Guide
