Legendary Duelists brings back favorite characters from the original series and beyond! With modern twists to their strategies, these Legendary Duelists are back again to step up their game. In Battle City, Mai Valentine combined her Harpie strategy with the Amazoness, making it all the way to the quarterfinals before she was bested by Marik Ishtar. The Amazoness are back in Legendary Duelists with new cards that are sure to take the strategy to the next level!

Amazoness Princess is a Level 3 with 1200 ATK, 900 DEF, and its name becomes Amazoness Queen while it’s on the field or in the Graveyard. When its Normal or Special Summoned, you can add an “Amazoness” Spell/Trap from your Deck to your hand! Search effects like these let you play your best cards more often and adjust your hand to work well in whatever situation you’re in. Also, when Amazoness Princess declares an attack, you can send another card from your hand or field to the Graveyard and Special Summon an “Amazoness” monster from your Deck in Defense Position! You can’t get another Amazoness Princess, but Special Summoning the real Amazoness Queen can make your monsters indestructible by battle and add a big attacker to the field for your next turn!

Amazoness Call is a great way to find Amazoness Princess. It’s a Quick-Play Spell that will let you take any “Amazoness” card from your Deck, other than itself, and either add it to your hand or send it to your Graveyard. Doubling up on the search power will make things twice as consistent, and between Amazoness Princess and Amazoness Call, this Deck has many ways to find the cards you need when you need them. Amazoness Call has a bonus effect that will let you banish it to target an “Amazoness” monster you control, and for that turn that monster can attack all monsters your opponent controls! Your other monsters can’t attack, but combining that effect with a strong monster or Amazoness Princess can be a game changer.

Amazoness Onslaught is a Continuous Trap that you can search with either Amazoness Princess or Amazoness Call. Once per turn, during the Battle Phase, you can Special Summon an “Amazoness” monster from your hand and boost its ATK by 500. Ambushing your opponent during the Battle Phase with a surprise attacker can turn the tides of battle, especially when you look at its second effect. If an Amazoness battles an opponent’s monster, you can banish the opposing monster after damage calculation! Even the smallest Amazoness can be used to help clear away your opponent’s best monster. A bigger one, combined with Amazoness Call, can banish all your opponent’s monsters! Last but not least, if your opponent destroys your Amazoness Onslaught, you can target an Amazoness in your Graveyard and Special Summon it!
