Dark Saviors: An Armed Heroine Arrives!

May 25th, 2018

The “Sky Striker” cards in Dark Saviors make up a cool new theme led by a couple of new Link Monsters and powerful “Sky Striker” Spells. The “Sky Striker” core is tied together by a new Level 4 effect monster, Sky Striker Ace – Raye.

Sky Striker Ace – Raye is a Level 4 DARK Warrior with 1500 ATK and 1500 DEF. Raye also has a Quick Effect that lets you Tribute it to Special Summon a “Sky Striker Ace” Link Monster from your Extra Deck to the Extra Monster Zone, without performing a Link Summon. That makes it a breeze to Special Summon your “Sky Striker Ace” Link Monsters from your Extra Deck when you draw Sky Striker Ace – Raye.

Raye is also resilient. While Raye is in your Graveyard, if a face-up “Sky Striker Ace” Link Monster you control is destroyed by battle or leaves the field because of an opponent’s card effect, you can Special Summon Raye back to the field. Each of Raye’s effects can be used once per turn.

There are two “Sky Striker Ace” Link Monsters in Dark Saviors that you can use in conjunction with Raye’s effect: Sky Striker Ace – Kagari and Sky Striker Ace – Shizuku.

Sky Striker Ace – Kagari and Sky Striker Ace – Shizuku are both Link 1 monsters that can be Summoned by using a “Sky Striker Ace” monster of a different Attribute as a Link Material. Kagari is a FIRE monster and Shizuku is a WATER monster, so they can be used as Link Materials to Summon one another. Since Raye is a DARK monster, Raye can be used to Link Summon either one of them.

Kagari and Shizuku both have 1500 ATK and can each be Special Summoned once per turn. They also both have powerful effects that modify ATK and grab “Sky Striker” Spells from the Deck.

Kagari gains 100 ATK for each Spell in your Graveyard and lets you add a “Sky Striker” Spell Card from your Graveyard to your hand if it’s Special Summoned. Shizuku reduces the ATK and DEF of your opponent’s monsters by 100 for each Spell in your Graveyard, and lets you search your Deck for a “Sky Striker” Spell to add to your hand during the End Phase of the turn that it’s Special Summoned. The Spell you search for with Shizuku can’t have the same name as a Spell in your Graveyard.

Link Summon Sky Striker Ace – Kagari first and grab a “Sky Striker” Spell from your Graveyard. Then trade Kagari in to Link Summon Shizuku so that you can use Shizuku’s effect in the End Phase to add another “Sky Striker” Spell to your hand.

There are lots of “Sky Striker” Spell Cards that you can grab with the effects of Kagari and Shizuku. Two of the most powerful ones are Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage! and Sky Striker Mecha – Hornet Drones.AttackOfTheDrones

Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage! is a Normal Spell Card that you can use if you have no monsters in your Main Monster Zone. It lets you add a “Sky Striker” card from your Deck to your hand, and then draw a card if you have 3 or more Spells in your Graveyard. Your copies of Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage! give you quick access to Sky Striker Ace – Raye and your Sky Striker Spells, and may even let you draw some cards too!

Sky Striker Mecha – Hornet Drones is a Quick-Play Spell Card that you can use if you have no monsters in your Main Monster Zone. It Special Summons a DARK Sky Striker Ace Token with 0 ATK and 0 DEF to the field. If you have 3 or more Spells in your Graveyard, that Token has 1500 ATK and 1500 DEF instead. Either way, you can use that Sky Striker Ace Token to Link Summon Kagari or Shizuku.

The “Sky Striker” theme is powerful whether it’s used by itself or incorporated into another Deck. Similar to the way Aleister the Invoker and Invocation are used to enhance lots of different competitive Decks by giving them access to Invoked monsters, Sky Striker Ace – Raye and the “Sky Striker” Spells are likely to enhance many competitive Decks by giving them access to the “Sky Striker Ace” Link Monsters. “Sky Striker” cards are available now in Dark Saviors!
