When it was first released in Flaming Eternity over a decade ago, Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys was one of the most powerful monsters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. Now, a new member of the Nephthys theme replaces the Sacred Phoenix as the most powerful Nephthys monster ever printed. Nephthys, the Sacred Flame, available in Hidden Summoners, has a bunch of incredible effects, and even though it’s a Link Monster, it derives its extraordinary strength from Ritual Monsters.

11 22 Ygo 1Nephthys, the Sacred Flame combines the classic power of Ritual Summoning with the new-age flexibility of Link Summoning. Nephthys, the Sacred Flame is a Link-3 monster with 2400 ATK that you can Link Summon by using two or more monsters, including a Ritual Monster, as Link Materials. The more Ritual Monsters you use to Link Summon Nephthys, the Sacred Flame, the stronger it becomes.

While Nephthys, the Sacred Flame is in the Extra Monster Zone, monsters your opponent controls cannot target Nephthys monsters in the Main Monster Zones for attacks. Then, it gains effects based on the number of Ritual Monsters you used to Link Summon it.

If you use at least one Ritual Monster to Link Summon Nephthys, the Sacred Flame, your Sacred Flame can’t be destroyed in battle. If you use at least two Ritual Monsters to Link Summon Nephthys, the Sacred Flame, it also can’t be destroyed by card effects and gains 1200 ATK. If you use exactly three Ritual Monsters to Link Summon Nephthys, the Sacred Flame, it’ll gain another 1200 ATK, for a grand total of 4800 ATK, and neither player will be able to target it with card effects.

While it’s in the Extra Monster Zone with all of its effects, Nephthys, the Sacred Flame has 4800 ATK, can’t be destroyed by battle or card effects, can’t be targeted by card effects, and protects all of your other Nephthys monsters from attacks. Use three Ritual Monsters to Link Summon it, and it’ll become nearly impossible for your opponent to get it off of your field!

Nephthys, the Sacred Flame also has the best possible Link Arrows for a monster placed in the Extra Monster Zone. While it’s in the Extra Monster Zone, all of its Link Arrows will point to your own Main Monster Zones. That means you’ll be able to Special Summon three additional monsters from your Extra Deck by giving them access to those three Main Monster Zones.

A Nephthys Deck is adept at Ritual Summoning monsters. That makes it easy to Link Summon Nephthys, the Sacred Flame in a Deck that is designed to do so. Once Summoned, Nephthys, the Sacred Flame can protect itself, protect your other Nephthys cards, and attack for massive damage. 

Put Nephthys, the Sacred Flame, from Hidden Summoners , at the heart of your Nephthys Deck and let it lead you to victory!
