Check Out This Weekend’s Giant Cards!

June 24th, 2017

The giant cards are here! This weekend’s ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARDS!! tournament prizes feature two monsters from the brand new Pendulum Evolution booster set: Timestar Magician and Astrograph Sorcerer. The text for each of these beautiful giant cards is in Spanish, affording Duelists who are here this weekend a rare opportunity to acquire a Spanish-language giant card.

Timestar Magician is a Rank 4 Xyz Monster that can be Xyz Summoned by combining two Level 4 “Magician” Pendulum Monsters.

Giant Timestar Magician


Timestar Magician can give up an Xyz Material once per turn to add a DARK Spellcaster-type monster from your Deck, Graveyard, or face-up from your Extra Deck to your hand. In addition, once per turn, Timestar Magician lets you protect a Pendulum Monster in your Monster Zone or Pendulum Zone from destruction by sending a Spellcaster from your Deck to your Graveyard instead. Timestar Magician is a great addition to the Pendulum Magician strategy, since it searches for the cards you need in your hand, and protects the cards you place on your field. You can read more about Timestar Magician here.


Astrograph Sorcerer is a Level 7 DARK Spellcaster Pendulum Monster with 2500 ATK and 2000 DEF.

Giant Astrograph Sorcerer


Its Pendulum Effect lets you destroy it, immediately placing it face-up in your Extra Deck, and then take a Stargazer Magician from your Deck and either Special Summon it onto the field or place it in your Pendulum Zone. Astrograph Sorcerer’s monster effect lets you Special Summon it from your hand if a card you control is destroyed by battle or by card effect, and then grab a monster from your Deck with the same name as one of your monsters that was destroyed during that turn. Plus, Astrograph Sorcerer has a cool effect that can Special Summon Supreme King Z-ARC under the right circumstances. You can read more about Astrograph Sorcerer and other cards in Pendulum Evolution here.


Pendulum Evolution officially released yesterday, but is not yet legal for competitive play here at the Central American WCQ. Nevertheless, the cards in Pendulum Evolution will be legal in next weekend’s South American WCQ and the North American WCQ on the following weekend, so make sure you acquaint yourselves with these cards if you’re planning to compete!
