Released on June 23, this thrilling new set is both an expansion of the game and a celebration of its remarkable 25-year journey. The set contains both exciting new cards and cherished reprints, and a pack of Monstrous Revenge contains five cards: four Ultra Rares and one Secret Rare. But that’s not all – within the set’s impressive lineup of 104 cards, 25 are special Quarter Century Secret Rares, which feature a remarkable speckled holographic gold card name, an exclusive watermark logo, and the Secret Rare foil treatment over the entire card. These Quarter Century Secret Rares commemorate Yu-Gi-Oh!’s 25th anniversary and are already reaching high values on the secondary market.
Five Powerful Cards
Among the many gems to be found in Battles of Legend: Monstrous Revenge, we’ve selected five that are particularly noteworthy. The first is Duality, which allows players to swap a Light or Dark monster from their hand or Extra Deck with its opposite (as long it’s of the same Type and Level). It’s an easy way to set up extra deck plays by setting up Chaos monsters, and because it’s a Quick-Play spell, you can play it on your opponent’s turn. You can also choose to banish Duality from your graveyard in order to transfer one Light and one Dark monster from your graveyard to your deck and draw a card. All of these abilities make Duality a valuable support card for Chaos decks.
Divine Arsenal AA-Zeus – Sky Thunder is a reprint of one of the best Xyz monsters you can find in Yu-Gi-Oh!. It’s powerful enough to execute a board wipe, and few cards can defend against its Quick Effect that sends the opponent’s cards to the graveyard. Anyone can see that Sky Thunder is a handy way to obliterate your opponent’s strategies.
Be ready for Sky Strikers to be popular again, as Sky Striker Ace – Azalea is here to rejuvenate the archetype. Azalea is one of the precious few Link-2 monsters that Sky Striker has access to and it allows the player to get rid of the opponent’s monsters without losing the card. Whenever Azalea battles, you can banish a spell from your graveyard to destroy the attacking monster. What’s more, if you have more than three spells in your graveyard, Azalea can destroy your opponent’s card for free. With access to a card this good, don’t be surprised if you start seeing Sky Strikers show up in more decks!
For anyone who uses Adventure tokens in their decks, Rite of Aramesir is an invaluable piece. It allows the player to Special Summon an Adventure token for as long as Rite of Aramesir is in play. Even if that’s not your main strategy to defeat your opponent, Rite of Aramesir serves as a useful distraction to keep them occupied and use up their defenses while you ready the real threats in your deck.
Assault Synchron is a must for Synchro decks. It can Special Summon itself if the player sacrifices a measly 700 life points, and while it does temporarily restrict the player to only summoning Synchro monsters from the Extra Deck, it’s only while Assault Synchron is in play. You can even banish this card from your graveyard to Special Summon a tributed or banished Dragon Synchro Monster. If you enjoy playing with Synchro decks and you’re short on Assault Synchron cards, then Monstrous Revenge is here for you!
These are just a few examples of the impressive cards included in Battle of Legend: Monstrous Revenge. With these cards and more to be found, as well as the valuable 25 Quarter Century Secret Rare cards, it’s no surprise that Monstrous Revenge has proven to be a popular set amongst both Yu-Gi-Oh! players and collectors. Battle of Legend: Monstrous Revenge booster boxes are still available on our store, so order today!
