Konami‘s Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG is celebrating the Egyptian Gods Slifer the Sky Dragon and Obelisk the Tormentor in its new deck release.

Comprised of 40 cards — 4 Ultra Rares, 4 Super Rares, 32 Commons — the deck utilizes one Egyptian God Card and 5 new cards (4 unique cards and 1 copy of Soul Crossing) for a fast play style that incorporates a Quick-Play Spell Card that lets players Tribute Summon their Egyptian God Card by Tributing the opponent’s monsters. Both decks can be mixed and matched for combined strategies that involve multiple Egyptian God Cards.

A Description for the two decks can be found below:

Slifer the Sky Dragon
Slifer powers up depending on how many cards you have in your hand, so this Deck uses Token-generating effects to help you gather the 3 required Tributes while using fewer cards from your hand. After you have Slifer on the field, power it up with cards that let you draw more cards, like the brand-new Thunderforce Attack! Based on Slifer’s signature attack, this Spell can destroy all your opponent’s face-up monsters at any time, but if you use it during your own Main Phase you can draw a card for each monster destroyed!

Obelisk the Tormentor
Unleash the true power of Obelisk the Tormentor by Tributing 2 monsters you control and wipe your opponent’s monsters off the field! This Deck uses self-replicating monsters to provide Tributes and protect your Life Points as you get closer to drawing your Divine Beast. Obelisk’s own ability can crush your opponent’s monsters all at once, but throw in the new Spell Card, Fist of Fate, and you can negate a monster’s effect and destroy it without needing to Tribute. Activate during your own Main Phase and you can crush all your opponent’s Spells and Traps as well!

Set for a June 11 release date, each deck will retail for $9.99 USD.
