Rise from the Ashes!

April 14th, 2016

The Winged Dragon of Ra – Immortal Phoenix completes the trifecta of The Winged Dragon of Ra’s various forms. It was the Immortal Phoenix form that Marik used against Joey in the Battle City semifinals to cause him so much actual damage due to power of the Shadow Games that he collapsed before he could win the Duel. Now that power can be yours thanks to the Millennium Pack!

SomeoneHasACaseOfTheMondaysThe Winged Dragon of Ra – Immortal Phoenix has 4000 ATK and DEF and can only be Summoned from the Graveyard if The Winged Dragon of Ra is set from the field to your Graveyard. That Summoning ability cannot be Chained to and the Immortal Phoenix is also immune to the effects of any other cards while it’s on the field. It retains the ability to send any monster on the field to the Graveyard for the low price of 1000 LP, an ability that doesn’t target and can be used multiple times a turn, making the Immortal Phoenix perfect for finishing off an opponent, especially in conjunction with the cards you’ll need to help you Summon it!

While you could go through the motions of loading Immortal Phoenix into the Graveyard, then Tributing 3 monsters for The Winged Dragon of Ra – Sphere Mode or The Winged Dragon of Ra, you can actually save yourself a lot of time and effort trying to draw all the cards you need and get them into the right places if you can Xyz Summon 2 Rank 6 Xyz Monsters instead.

For your first Xyz Summon, you’ll want Beatrice, Lady of the Eternal who can send The Winged Dragon of Ra – Immortal Phoenix and The Winged Dragon of Ra to your Graveyard on consecutive turns. Then on your next turn, you’ll want to Summon Inzektor Exa-Beetle and use it to Equip The Winged Dragon of Ra with its effect. Now, you can use Inzektor Exa-Beetle’s effect to send The Winged Dragon of Ra and a face-up card from your opponent’s side of the field to the Graveyard, which will allow you to Summon The Winged Dragon of Ra – Immortal Phoenix from your Graveyard! Since Inzektor Exa-Beetle is Rank 6, you can then use it as Xyz Material to Summon Gaia Dragon the Thunder Charger, giving you over 9000 ATK on your side of the field! Your opponent can’t even escape the combo by leaving only face-down cards on the field because Xyz Summoning Gaia Dragon the Thunder Charger will cause The Winged Dragon of Ra to be destroyed as an Equip Card with no monster to equip to, triggering Immortal Phoenix’s effect anyways.

There are lots of creative ways to make use of Marik’s ultimate monster, and you can start exploring them tomorrow when the Millennium Pack launches!
