★ Dwell into the gates of the Executioners! ★
Gate of Verdict, –Judgment–
“Gate of Verdict, -Judgement-” is a [Set] Spell card that shouldn’t be missed out in any 《Executioners》 deck. Not only can it fuel more cards into your Drop Zone, it can also provide additional gauge. Additionally, once you have fifteen or more cards in your Drop Zone, it allows you to draw an additional card by retrieving 1 《Executioners》card that was sent to the Drop Zone! .
Sound Speed Jailer, Helle Gepard
“Sound Speed Jailer, Helle Gepard” is a really versatile and resilient 《Executioners》monster that has the [Soulguard] and [Move] ability, giving itself a soul as it is called. When this card is destroyed, you can put the top two cards from your deck to your drop zone, which allows you to increase cards in your drop zone! Also, with its strong attack and defense power of 6000, you can clear a lot of your opponent monsters with ease!
Tempest Jailer, Helle Cougar
“Tempest Jailer, Helle Cougar” can provide a lot of neat advantages with its attack. You can gain 1 life whenever you destroy a monster or deal direct damage. In addition to that, if you have a “Gate of Verdict -Judgement-“ on your field or you have ten or more cards in your drop zone, you also get to draw a card! With its [Double Attack], you can potentially draw two additional cards and gain 2 life. Having more cards allows you to unleash many combinations of abilities, and the extra life gives you the added insurance, since you start the game with fewer life.
It might look like any other ordinary shield that protects your monsters and yourself, but there is more to it than meets the eye! “Helles Shield” gives extra abilities when it is cast based on the number of cards in your Drop Zone. If you have ten or more cards in your drop zone, you can give yourself two additional gauge and its ability cannot be nullified. If you have fifteen or more cards in the Drop Zone, deal one damage to your opponent. A truly powerful spell indeed!
A card that can destroy any of your opponent’s size 2 or less monster. If you have twenty or more cards in your Drop Zone, it can destroy any cards on your opponent’s field. Use it to get rid of any card that are hindering your strategy!
Demon Way, Jigokuezu
An important card that can call any 《Executioners》from your drop zone to the field. This card solves your problem of playing 《Executioners》 monsters you might want to your field, since a lot of 《Executioners》cards are sent from the top of the deck to the drop zone by the abilities of your cards. Also, when this card in your Drop Zone, you can get this card back to your hand by paying two gauge.
Gagalgarios, “Prison Pyre Demonic Wave”
Gagalrios, the Impact Monster of this flag, and the “boss monster” of 《Executioners》!
