Yokai Wednesdays

Konichiwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  •  Ungaikyo is less of a creature and more of a physical object. It’s essentially a haunted mirror that can show the presence of unseen monsters and demons. Humans have used this mirror to trap spirits, and the object itself can manipulate appearances. Supposedly, on the 15th day of the 8th month in the old lunar calendar, special water was used on a crystal dish to reflect the light of a full moon. If the same water is used to paint a yokai’s image on a mirror, the spirit will inhibit the object.

  • Tengu tsubute is a phenomenon that’s caused by the mischievous Tengu. The event causes random rocks to fall the sky. The rocks range from small pebbles, to gigantic boulders. People who are struck by said rocks will succumb to illness, and even those in the presence of the phenomena will be struck with misfortune.

More Of My Favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for me to share some more of my favorite cards. Now, let’s duel!

  • Greedy Venom Fusion Dragon Type: Dragon/Dark/ Fusion/ Effect 10 stars ATK/ 3300  DEF/2500 Monster Requirements: 1 “Predaplant” monster + 1 DARK monster whose original Level is 8 or higher. Appearance: An awesome purple dragon with shining scales. Effect: Must first be Fusion Summoned. Once per turn: You can target 1 face-up monster; until the end of this turn, change that target’s ATK to 0, also that target has its effects negated. If this card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard: Destroy as many monsters on the field as possible, then you can banish 1 Level 8 or higher DARK monster from your Graveyard and Special Summon this card from the Graveyard.

 

This insane dragon is one of the best Fusion Monsters ever created. Its attack rivals Blue-Eyes, and it’s quite easy to make. Your opponent will have a very hard time taking care of this beast. It also acts as a dark hole when removed from the field.

  • Lonefire Blossom Type: Plant/Effect Attribute: Fire 3 stars ATK/ 500 DEF/ 1400 Appearance: A set of bomb plants with short fuses. Effect: Once per turn: You can Tribute 1 face-up Plant-Type monster; Special Summon 1 Plant-Type monster from your deck.

This card is a absolute staple in any Plant-Type deck. It goes especially well with “Predaplant” decks, and can search out any Plant monster in your deck. It’s very good for an OTK.

Yokai Wednesdays (Every Other Wednesday)

Konichiwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Hainu are canine-like creatures of Japanese folklore. They are nearly identical to the common dog, however they sport a beautiful pair of black wings. The yokai can be found in plains, forests, and human inhabited areas. People who approach this yokai must do it with caution, as they are quite ferocious. Fortunately, if you manage to tame a Hainu, it will become an incredibly loyal companion.

  • Nasu-baba is an extremely bizarre creature of Japanese mythology. Its name translates from Japanese to “Eggplant Hag”. It’s depicted as an old woman with dark purple skin and a toothy grin. She lives on Mount Hiei, and wanders around dark rooms. Despite her frightening appearance, she is actually quite useful, ringing the temple’s bell in times of disaster.

More Of My Favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for me to show some more of my cards. Now, let’s duel!

  • Number 49: Fortune Tune Attribute: Light Winged Beast XYZ Effect Monster Rank: 3 ATK/ 400 DEF/ 900 Effect: Requires 2 Level 3 Monsters. During each of your Standby Phases: Gain 500 Life Points. This card cannot be targeted by card effects. If this face-up card would be destroyed, you can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card instead. When this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard: Target 2 Level 3 monsters  in your Graveyard; shuffle them both into the Deck, and if you do, return this card from the Graveyard into the Extra Deck. This effect can only be used once per turn. Appearance: A light blue heron with red tail feathers.

Ah, the good old Fortune Tune. I both love and absolutely despise this card. If you use it, it’ll drive your opponent completely crazy! If you play against it you’ll pop a blood vessel. Its immunity to being targeted makes this card harder to deal with than pulling teeth! Then, if you finally kill it, it just goes back into the Extra Deck, make your life hell once again.

  • Superdimensional Robot Galaxy Destroyer Attribute: Light Type: Machine XYZ   Effect Monster Rank: 10 ATK/ 5000 DEF/ 2000 Effect: Requires 3 Level 10 monsters. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; destroy all Spells and Traps Cards your opponent controls. Your opponent cannot activate Spells/Trap Cards in response to this effect’s activation. Appearance: An awesome robot with giant wings and a blue body.  

This card is extremely powerful, and has a very fantastic effect. The only issue is trying to summon it, but if you do, your opponent is as good as dead! They’ll have to rely on monsters, and it’s very difficult to top a 5000 ATK behemoth.
