A Gagaga Magician’s Best Friends
Gagaga Magician has never been this tough to destroy. Two new Gagaga support cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Zexal Collection will give your Gagaga Deck the resilience it needs to help you compete with even the toughest opponents.
Gagagashield is the first of the 2 new Gagaga support cards you can get in the new Zexal Collection mini-tin. Gagagashield is a Trap Card that you can activate to protect your Spellcaster from destruction. Once activated, Gagagashield equips to your Spellcaster. Then, twice per turn, the monster that it’s equipped to can’t be destroyed by battle or by card effects. Defend Gagaga Magician or Gagaga Girl with Gagagashield, and you can Summon the other next turn for an Xyz Summon combo.
Even though Gagagashield is a Gagaga card, it can be equipped to any Spellcaster. That means you can use it to protect your favorite classic monsters, including Dark Magician, Gravekeeper’s Assailant, and Chaos Sorcerer, from popular cards like Dark Hole and Mirror Force. You can even use it with the new Prophecy monsters, protecting High Priestess of Prophecy so she can use her effect every turn. Use Secret Village of the Spellcasters while your Spellcaster is protected by Gagagashield, and your opponent will have an even tougher time trying to destroy your Spellcaster, since he won’t be able to activate any Spell Cards.
The tradeoff for the awesome Xyz Summons that Gagaga monsters let you do is that their ATK and DEF isn’t as high as other low-Level monsters. But don’t worry, if your opponent destroys one of your Gagaga monsters in battle, you can bring your Gagaga back with Gagagaback!
It’s no secret that Gagaga Decks thrive on Xyz Summons; but in order to perform an Xyz Summon, you’ll need to have at least 2 monsters on the field at the same time. Gagagaback lets you get back at your opponent after he destroys your monsters in battle.
Gagagaback is a Quick-Play Spell Card, so it can be activated on either player’s turn; but you can only activate it if one of your Gagaga monsters was destroyed by battle during the turn you activate it. After it’s activated, Gagagaback lets you Special Summon all of the monsters in your Graveyard that were destroyed in battle during the turn you activated Gagagaback. In the recoil, Gagagaback deals 600 damage to you for each monster you Special Summon; but that’s a small price to pay to recover your entire field and retaliate.
Note that Gagagaback brings back all of your monsters that are destroyed in battle during a single turn – not just Gagaga monsters. This lets you set up a cool combo with Mystic Tomato.
If your opponent has a monster on the field with at least 1500 ATK, you can Summon Mystic Tomato and attack into your opponent’s monster. Your Mystic Tomato will be destroyed in battle, and its effect will let you Special Summon a DARK monster with 1500 ATK or less from your Deck, including another Mystic Tomato or a Gagaga Magician. Special Summon another Mystic Tomato, and attack your opponent’s monster again to activate your Tomato’s effect. Keep Special Summoning Mystic Tomatoes from your Deck until your last one is Special Summoned to the field.
Next, attack your opponent’s monster with your last Mystic Tomato, and use its effect to Special Summon Gagaga Magician from your Deck. Finally, attack your opponent’s monster with Gagaga Magician, causing your Magician to be destroyed in battle.
Once this combo is performed, you’ll be able to activate Gagagaback to Special Summon your Gagaga Magician and all of your Mystic Tomatoes from your Graveyard. You’ll be all set to perform some powerful Rank 4 Xyz Summons.
If you’re “Feelin’ the Flow,” you can build a Gagaga Deck just like Yuma’s! Show off your determination and fighting spirit with Gagagashield and Gagagaback!
