Well, it seems like people who were waiting for a legal version of Slifer the Sky Dragon are about to get what they want! Though the announcement comes from a Japanese magazine called V Jump, it brings further hope for TCG players everywhere that we may one day obtain the last card to complete the Egyptian god trilogy! Since Shonen Jump is moving on to a digital-only platform in the summer of 2012, is it safe to assume that Slifer will release alongside the 2012 Premium Tin?
edit “Slifer will be released as the next shonen jump alpha promo card”
Effect: You must tribute 3 monsters to normal summon this card (you cannot set this card). The normal summon of this card cannot be negated. When this card is normal summoned, cards and effects cannot be activated. If this card is special summoned: Send it to the graveyard during the end phase. This card gains 1000 attack and defense for each card in your hand. When your opponent normal or special summons a monster(s) in face-up attack position: That monster loses 2000 attack, and if its attack becomes 0 by this card’s effect, destroy that monster.
(Also, as a side note, if you’ve been following the blog, you might have noticed that there haven’t been a Card of the Night in the past couple weeks; it’s just been so busy lately that we haven’t managed to make a new feature, but we are working on one coming soon!)
*Update 4/30/2012: Slifer the Sky Dragon has been confirmed to be a Shonen Jump Alpha subscription promo! You can read the details here.
