STOR Preview: Legendary Six Samurai – Shi En and Friends

January 31st, 2011

When the Six Samurai monsters were first released, Synchro Monsters had not yet been introduced in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. Now, we’ve entered the era of 5Ds, and Synchro Monsters have revolutionized the way the game is played. The Storm of Ragnarok is approaching, and with it comes one of the strongest Six Samurai monsters ever released: a Six Samurai Synchro Monster!

Note: This monster has a jetpack.

Legendary Six Samurai – Shi En is a Level 5 Synchro Monster with 2500 ATK and the power to negate one Spell or Trap Card each turn. This is an incredible power that can protect even the largest fields. Cards like Dark Hole, Bottomless Trap Hole, and Book of Moon are powerless against a field with Shi En on it!

Don’t even bother using these cards against Shi En.

Even if your opponent does find a way to destroy your Shi En, its power lets you destroy another of your Six Samurai monsters instead. That’ll allow your Shi En will remain on the field unscathed.

Legendary Six Samurai – Shi En can only be Synchro Summoned by Tuning a Warrior-Type Tuner with 1 or more non-Tuner Six Samurai monsters. Fortunately, Storm of Ragnarok has the perfect duo to Tune together when you want to Synchro Summon Shi En.

Legendary Six Samurai – Kageki is a Level 3 monster that lets you Special Summon a Six Samurai from your hand when it’s Normal Summoned. Kagemusha of the Six Samurai is the perfect monster to Summon with its effect. Since Kagemusha is a Level 2 Warrior-Type Tuner, you can Tune it with Kageki to quickly Synchro Summon Shi En.

It’s so easy to Summon Shi En!

Even if you don’t draw Kageki and Kagemusha together, you can still use them with your other Six Samurai monsters. Kageki starts off with 200 ATK, but its Attack Points skyrocket to 1700 while you control another Six Samurai. If you don’t have another Six Samurai monster in your hand, you can hide behind Kageki’s 2000 DEF.

Kagemusha has a solid 1800 DEF, and can step in to protect a Six Samurai from any card effect that targets. Whenever a face-up Six Samurai monster is targeted by a card effect, you can change the target to Kagemusha.

Now that Six Samurais have a boss monster that can protect the field from annihilation, flooding the field with Samurais isn’t as risky as it once was. Six Samurais are an incredible theme with a variety of powerful effects. Thanks to Legendary Six Samurai – Shi En and the rest of the Six Samurai legends, they’re sure to be a powerful force in tournaments.
