In August 2014, Duelist Alliance made its debut in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. Within the expansion was an underutilized archetype known as Shaddolls. The Shaddolls are a set of Spellcaster-type monsters who use Flip effects and Fusion Summoning to nullify your opponent's tactics. From limiting their summoning capabilities to negating their opponent's card effects, the Shaddolls have an answer to anything. In Shaddoll Showdown, they're back and they don't intend to be overlooked this time! Structure Deck: Shaddoll Showdown contains 49 cards: three Ultra Rares, seven Super Rares, and 39 Commons.
The Shaddoll are known for corrupting members of other archetypes and using their power for themselves. Structure Deck Shaddoll Showdown continues this trend with new main deck Shaddolls that aren't DARK attribute monsters. Reeshaddoll Wendi is a Level 3 WIND monster, with a Flip effect that allows you to summon a Shaddoll monster from your deck, either face-up or face-down. All of the new main deck Shaddolls, like Wendi, have an effect that summons a Shaddoll monster from several places like the deck or your banished cards. However, additional effects make these cards even more interesting! Back to Wendi who, upon being sent to the GY by a card effect (like Shaddoll Fusion), summons yet another Shaddoll monster from your deck, replacing itself after a Fusion Summon to maybe go into a more powerful Fusion or Link Summon. The other new Shaddoll effects include powering up your monsters by sending a Shaddoll in your hand to the GY and recovering your banished Shaddoll cards.
Of course, a Fusion-centered deck isn't complete without new Fusion Monsters. Shaddoll Showdown delivers with El Shaddoll Apkallone, a Shaddoll-ified Evigishki Mind Augus. Apkallone negates any monster's effect permanently when Special Summoned, highly ideal to summon when you're up against a troublesome monster. Additionally, when Apkallone leaves the field, it let's you add a Shaddoll card from your deck or GY to your hand in exchange for discarding one card.
Last but not least: Even classic Shaddoll cards like El Shaddoll Construct and El Shaddoll Winda are included with brand new artwork! So be sure to not miss out on this brand new Structure Deck, releasing on 13 February 2020.
