Zigfried von Schroeder’s Valkyries are almost here! The upcoming Shadows in Valhalla booster set introduces Zigfried’s Valkyrie cards to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. These cards include his signature Spell Card—Ride of the Valkyries!

0809 Ygo 1In the original animated Yu-Gi-Oh! series, Zigfried used his Ride of the Valkyries Spell Card to Special Summon all of his Valkyrie monsters from his hand. By doing so, he was able to defeat powerful Duelists like Rex and Weevil in a single turn. You can use Ride of the Valkyries to defeat your opponents in a single turn too!

Ride of the Valkyries lets you Special Summon any number of Valkyrie monsters with different names from your hand. That makes it easy to fill up your field with monsters that have high ATK and use them to finish off an opponent.

If you Special Summon three or more Valkyrie monsters with Ride of the Valkyries, you also take no battle damage until the end of your next turn. Even though this part of the effect won’t contribute to finishing off an opponent, it guarantees that if you can’t finish off your opponent with your Valkyrie monsters, your opponent also won’t be able to finish you off on his or her next turn.

The incredible power of Ride of the Valkyries comes with a slight drawback. During the End Phase of the turn that you activate Ride of the Valkyries, all monsters you control get shuffled into your Deck. Fortunately, Ride of the Valkyries also has an effect that lets you add Mischief of the Time Goddess to your hand, which will help you circumvent that drawback.

You can banish Ride of the Valkyries from your Graveyard to add Mischief of the Time Goddess from your Deck to your hand. Mischief of the Time Goddess is a Quick-Play Spell Card that you can use during your own Battle Phase to skip the rest of your turn, as well as your opponent’s ENTIRE turn, and advance the Duel to the Battle Phase of your next turn. By doing so, Mischief of the Time Goddess will let you pass over your End Phase, completely skipping the part of the effect of Ride of the Valkyries that would otherwise force you to shuffle all of the monsters on your field back into your Deck. With two consecutive Battle Phases, you can get the most out of your Valkyries Special Summoned by Ride of the Valkyries and ride into battle with them twice in a row! That’ll make it easy for you to take a swift victory.

Ride of the Valkyries is a nifty Spell Card that you can use to storm the field with Valkyrie monsters that’ll speedily annihilate your opponent. Ride of the Valkyries will be available in Shadows in Valhalla  on August 17!
