Check out the announcements and please leave a comment.

Here is the card.


Slifer the Sky Dragon, one of the best monsters in the game. Slifer gains 1000 ATK and DEF for each card in your hand, so the more the merrier, and as a bonus, Slifer is completely unaffected by Monster Effects, Trap Cards, and Spell Cards on the turn it is Summoned. When your opponent Summons a monster, then that monster instantly loses 2000 ATK. If that monster has 0 ATK left, then it is destroyed, but if the targeted monster has remaining ATK, then you can easily destroy it with Slifer. I don’t know about you, but that Slifer card looks very intimidating.


I’m not sure about the newest God Cards, but the old ones were easy to tell apart. Slifer had a brownish-red back with nothing on the back of the card except for the central circle. So, your opponent won’t have a hard time figuring out which card is Slifer unless you put protective card cases on each card in your Deck (I did it, and believe me, it is time consuming). If the new cards show the regular Konami and writing in the back, then you don’t have to worry about protective card casing your cards. Slifer is destroyed during the End Phase that it is Special Summoned from the Graveyard, so Special Summoning this card is very unlikely. You must also Tribute 3 monsters to get this card on the field, which is a high amount, but with a good reward. However, when Slifer is on the field, you won’t instantly win the duel. If you only have 1 or 2 cards in your hand, then Slifer is just as strong as The Tricky or slightly weaker than a Junk Synchron, but with a great effect. Slifer should only be played on the field when you have at least 3 cards in your hand. So, if you want to play cards from your hand, well Slifer loses 1000 ATK and DEF for each card you play. So, this card’s ATK and DEF is unstable, but that second mouth effect is what makes Slifer who it is. You will never find such an effect for any other monster in the game (Konami will never make a card with an effect that is even close to Slifer’s second mouth). That part of Slifer’s effect in unique, but the cards in your hand play an important factor as well. I don’t want to give this card 5 stars, but it deserves more than 4. So, believe it or not, Slifer gets 4.5 stars. It is a good card for any Deck, but keeping cards in your hand can too often prove to be a challenge.
