Flames of Destruction: Let’s Get Spooky

April 26th, 2018

Any Duelist knows the power of monsters that can use their effects from the hand and disrupt your opponent’s key moves. Cards like Effect Veiler, Maxx “C”, and Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring have shaped the game in a huge way, and Flames of Destruction is adding a new one to join the their ranks! Check out Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion!

If you like Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring, you’ll want to look at Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion too! You can discard Ghost Belle to negate one of three possible kinds of effects:

-Adding a card from the Graveyard to the hand or Deck.

-Special Summoning one or more Monster Cards from the Graveyard.

-Banishing a card from the Graveyard.

Where Ash Blossom prevents effects that involve going into the Main Deck, Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion has the same power to lock down the Graveyard! With the first option, you can negate effects like Disciples of the True Dracophoenix or SPYRAL MISSION – Rescue, which look to recycle cards in the Graveyard. The second option blocks the many dangerous cards that Special Summon from the Graveyard, such as Monster Reborn, Destrudo the Lost Dragon’s Frisson, or Fairy Tail – Snow (Plus, your opponent would still have to pay the costs to activate Destrudo or Snow!). Finally, Ghost Belle’s third negation can stop Called by the Grave or D.D. Crow from ruining your own plans. Ghost Belle’s effect is very open ended – it’s able to negate quite a variety of potential threats! It’s a particularly strong option against any Graveyard reliant strategy.

Ghost Belle also reflects Ash Blossom’s other stats. Ghost Belle has 0 ATK and 1800 DEF and is an EARTH Zombie Tuner monster. This allows Ghost Belle to be used for a Synchro Summon if you don’t need its effect. It also plays well with Zombie support like Mezuki – just discard Ghost Belle for its effect and bring it right back to the field.

If you’re looking for a hand trap that fills a unique role, Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion may be just what you’ve waited for! Offering a new level of control over the Graveyard and more flexibility than D.D. Crow, Ghost Belle will be a powerful addition to any Deck or Side Deck. You can find yours in Flames of Destruction – Sneak Peeks are this weekend!
