Circuit Break: Rekindling the Old Flame

November 7th, 2017

Fire King Monsters and Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys were all popular at one point in time, but gradually faded away from the competitive scene in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. But a new Fire King monster in Circuit Break will make Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys and the Fire Kings stronger than ever before!

Fire King Avatar Arvata is a Level 4 FIRE Beast-Warrior with 1800 ATK and 200 DEF. It also comes with a couple of once-per-turn effects that make it a perfect fit for Fire King Decks.

First, when a monster effect is activated while Arvata is on the field, you can negate the activation of that effect, and if you do, destroy one other FIRE monster in your hand or on your field.

This effect is beneficial for a couple of reasons. Not only can you use it to stifle your opponent’s plays by negating the activation of an opponent’s crucial monster effect, but you can also use it to easily destroy your own monsters whose effects activate after they’re destroyed, like Fire King High Avatar Garunix or Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys.

Second, if Fire King Avatar Arvata is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, you can target 1 FIRE Beast, Beast-Warrior, or Winged Beast monster in your Graveyard other than Arvata, and Special Summon it. That Special Summoned monster’s effects are negated and it’s destroyed in the End Phase.

This effect works to revive Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys, Fire King High Avatar Garunix, or any of the other Fire King monsters in your Graveyard so that it can be destroyed once more and activate its effect that triggers upon its destruction.

Fire King Avatar Barong, which adds a Fire King card from your Deck to your hand; Fire King Avatar Yaksha, which lets you destroy a card in your hand or that you control; and Fire King Avatar Kirin, which lets you send a FIRE monster from your Deck to your Graveyard all work well with the effect of Fire King Avatar Arvata.

By combining Fire King Avatar Arvata with the old Fire King monsters and powerful Fire King Spell Cards, you can use a Fire King Deck more powerful than ever before!

Although Fire King Avatar Arvata works best in Fire King Decks, it has synergy with all sorts of FIRE monsters due to its ability to negate important monster effects and easily Special Summon FIRE-Attribute Beasts, Beast-Warriors, and Winged Beasts from the Graveyard. That makes it a likely inclusion in Fire Fist Decks as well. You can find Fire King Avatar Arvata and more from Circuit Break, in stores now!
