Flames of Destruction: The Final Chapter

May 1st, 2018

Flames of Destruction is almost here, and with it comes more support for tons of different strategies. Among them is another wave of cards for Vendread Decks, containing 5 new cards to include in your Deck. These new cards will give you more ways to Ritual Summon monsters, and more ways to keep your Ritual Monsters in play for longer!


Let’s start off by taking a look at Revendread Executor, the new Ritual Monster you can Summon! The first thing to note is that it’s Level 8 and packs an impressive 3000 ATK. This makes Executor the highest ATK Vendread you can Summon! In addition, Executor will protect all of your other cards from being targeted by an opponent’s card effect – if they want to target your cards, they’ll have to get through him first. Since this effect is on a Monster with 3000 ATK, that’s easier said than done, and you can even make your opponent unable to target Executor if you use Vendread Core as Ritual Material! Pair that up with the fact that Revendread Executor’s name becomes Revendread Slayer on the field, and suddenly your opponent has to worry about any copies of Revendread Origin in your GY too! If your opponent does manage to destroy your Executor, you can add any “Vendread” card from your Deck to your hand. This gives you a great way to rebuild after your opponent has turned the tables.


Flames of Destruction even introduces another way to get the Ritual Material effect you want. Unlike Vendread Charge, which will Special Summon a monster from your Deck, Vendread Anima can banish itself from your GY to Special Summon a banished “Vendread” monster! This is great for picking the on-field effect you need to add to your next Ritual Summon. You don’t have to use this on one of the regular Vendread monsters, either – you can even Special Summon one of your Revendread Ritual Monsters as long as it was Ritual Summoned originally! This functions like an on-theme Mezuki, giving you plenty of longevity the longer the game goes on. You won’t be able to Special Summon monsters for the rest of the turn, unless they’re Zombies, but in a Vendread Deck that’s not a huge downside. If you use Anima as Ritual Material from the field, your Ritual Monster will banish any monster it destroys in battle! This is great to stop any pesky GY recursion your opponent may have, so having access to this with relative ease is great.


There are also 3 more Vendread cards for you to consider in your Deck. Revendread Revolution is a new Ritual Spell that works like Revendread Origin, Ritual Summoning a “Revendread” monster from your hand or GY. The difference is that this also allows you to send any “Vendread” monster from your Deck to the GY as material, and the Levels of the Tributes must equal the monster you want to Ritual Summon. The monster your Ritual Summon is destroyed during the next turn’s End Phase, but it’s a great way to search out exactly what you need for a future turn. Vendread Nightmare allows you to Tribute Vendread monsters from your hand or field in order to increase the Level of a Vendread you control by the number you Tribute. This is handy in case you need to get your monsters into the GY to use their effects, or to make the monster’s Level exact to combo with Revendread Revolution. Vendread Daybreak allows you to pick one of your Ritual Summoned “Vendread” monsters if your opponent controls more cards than you, and will destroy all cards on the field except for the chosen monster! This is similar to Evenly Matched, except you’re left with a monster and your opponent keeps nothing! Since it’s a Trap, you can even let your opponent get the upper hand and then spring this on them at the last second. It’s a great way to clean up the board in case your opponent is getting too far ahead.

Vendread Decks have a lot of new cards to look forward to in Flames of Destruction, giving them more ways to get cards from their Deck or even from the banished zone! With these powerful cards on the horizon, Vendread Decks had best be prepared for a Revendread Revolution once Flames of Destruction releases later this week!
