The Wave of Light Structure Deck, released on 18 January 2018, makes it easy for any player to sink their teeth into a rare control-focused Yu-Gi-Oh! Archetype – Counter Fairies. Counter Fairies, as their name suggests, focus on supporting the most powerful type of trap card in Yu-Gi-Oh! Counter traps can negate and destroy cards. They can only be answered by other counter traps, making them uniquely capable of disrupting a player’s strategy. As a result, this deck is filled with various controlling counter traps and fairies that gain effects based on your counter traps.
A plethora of counter traps make up the trap side of this Counter Fairy structure deck. Classic counter traps like Dark Bribe and Solemn Warning appear, and there are also less commonly used counter traps like Recall, which negates a monster effect and destroys that monster at the cost of the opponent drawing a card. In addition to previously printed counter traps, Wave of Light also brings one formerly OCG exclusive counter trap to the table – Rebirth of Parshath. When activated, this card negates a spell, trap, or monster effect. It then shuffles that card into its owner’s deck in exchange for paying 1000 life points, discarding one card, and revealing one counter trap in your hand. Lastly, the player who played Rebirth of Parshath can special summon one “Parshath” monster from their Deck or Extra Deck. This effect allows a player to put a powerful creature into play, while disrupting their opponent’s strategy.
Counter traps are one component of counter fairies, but what about the Fairies? Wave of Light brings back all the favorite counter fairies and fairy supports. Cards like Power Angel Valkyria, a previously OCG exclusive cards, will allow players to add fairies to their hand whenever they negate a spell, trap, or monster effect. Returning fairies like Metliel, Sage of the Sky, Minerva, Scholar of the Sky, and Neo-Parshath, the Sky Paladin also provide ample support to any player’s counter trap engine. However, the main engine is not the only important part of a counter fairy engine, as fairies interact with traps and not with each other.
Numerous support cards also put some icing on the Counter Fairy cake. Fan favorites like Archlord Kristya, Sanctuary in the Sky, and Herald of Orange Light round up the control package and give players the best chance to lock down their opponents by preventing explosive play. So, sleeve up that control deck and prepare to bring opponents to ruin with the Wave of Light Structure Deck! It is available exclusively in structure deck boxes at an MSRP of $9.99 (est. 8,47€).
