Preparations Complete

February 3rd, 2015

Ritual Monsters have been on the comeback trail since Saffira, Queen of Dragons was released in Duelist Alliance. Since then, each booster has had at least one new Ritual Monster in it. Secrets of Eternity has 2 – Malacoda, Netherlord of the Burning Abyss and Nekroz of Gungnir. Nekroz of Gungnir probably raised some eyebrows since the only other “Nekroz” monster right now is Dance Princess of the Nekroz, but it’s actually the first Ritual Monster from a new theme entirely dedicated to Ritual Summoning that will launch next Friday in The Secret Forces!

What’s New With Ritual Monsters?

March 18th, 2010

Absolute Powerforce has 1 new Ritual Monster and 3 new Djinns that can be used to Summon it. Each of these cards has a unique effect that gives you more options than ever when choosing to Summon a Ritual Monster.

The newest Ritual Monster is “Garlandolf, King of Destruction.” Garlandolf is a Level 7 Ritual Monster with 2500 ATK. When it’s Ritual Summoned, all face-up monsters with DEF less than or equal to the ATK of Garlandolf are destroyed, and Garlandolf gains 100 ATK for each of those monsters. Garlandolf is the perfect Ritual Monster to Summon when you want to clear the field, since most monsters have 2500 or less DEF.

Garlandolf can be Ritual Summoned with the Ritual Spell Card “Ritual of Destruction.” Then, you can remove “Ritual of Destruction” from your Graveyard so that all of your opponent’s monsters destroyed by your Ritual Monsters are sent to the top of your opponent’s Deck instead of his Graveyard. This can come in handy if you want to lock up your opponent’s draw with a card that won’t destroy your mighty Garlandolf. If you don’t remove “Ritual of Destruction” from your Graveyard, you can recover it with “Preparation of Rites” and get Garlandolf from your Deck along with it.

Absolute Powerforce Preview: Djinn Disserere of Rituals

February 3rd, 2010

Once upon a time, it used to be tough to perform Ritual Summons, because you needed the specific Ritual Spell and Ritual Monster Cards in your hand, along with monsters to Tribute for your Ritual Monster. Stardust Overdrive made this a lot easier with “Preparation of Rites” and the Djinns. These are DARK monsters that you can remove from the Graveyard and count as Tributes for your Ritual Monster. Each Djinn also gives the Ritual Monster you Summoned an extra ability, in addition to its own effect. The new set Absolute Powerforce makes Ritual Monsters even more powerful with three new Djinn monsters, including “Djinn Disserere of Rituals,” a brand new, never-before seen monster!
