ExMinion OfDarkness Monday:
Sanctuary in the Sky

Welcome to Ancient Sanctuary week. This week we'll be reviewing cards from the new AST expansion. Our first review is of the focal Spell card of the set, The Sanctuary in the Sky.

This field spell is required for many of the Angel cards in this set to get their effects, or to be summoned (this holds true for almost every monster we're reviewing this week.) But let's look at it on its own, shall we?

You don't take damage to your Life Points when a Fairy type attacks (or is rammed into another creature). Let me make this perfectly clear: THE MONSTER STILL DIES. It just prevents damage to life points. For example, you could ram your Shining Angel into a Jinzo. You would take no damage, but your Shining Angel would still be destroyed (and then you search your DDWL to ram into the Jinzo anyway.. muahahaha...)

Obviously, this card is only meant for Decks that are nearly pure Fairy-type, or use this card as an effect boost or a summoning requirement. Otherwise, there are better choices for your Deck. It's a nice bonus for those who want to take the path less traveled and run a Fairy deck.

Tranorix Monday: The Sanctuary in the Sky

For what I can only assume is part of a Flag Day celebration, we're finally reviewing some Ancient Sanctuary!

First of all, it's important you realize that The Sanctuary of the Sky will protect your Life Points but NOT your monsters (it's like a Field Magic version of Kuriboh). That said, it's still a nice card; you'll be able to leave some weaker Fairies (like Venus or sometimes Mars) in Attack Mode without worrying about taking a huge hit to your LP. Aside from that, the use of TSotS itself is pretty limited.

Of course, the real point of this card is so that the Fairies get to use certain effects. It gives Mars the effect, it gives Saturn the effect, and Zerato can't even be summoned without it. If you're running a Fairy Deck and want to make use of some of the new ones we get in AST, TSotS is really a must. Just make sure you have some way to protect it (Magic Drains and Judgments of Anubis work well).

Typical tournament deck: 1.5/5
Fairy deck: 3.5/5
Omega Welcome to day 1 of Angel week. Getting us started with these fairy themed cards is The Sanctuary in the Sky!

When this field card is on the field, any battle involving a fairy monster will result in 0 battle damage. This means a permanent Kuriboh for your fairies NOT a permanent Waboku, as your fairy type monsters will still be destroyed.

Not only is this effect pretty good for an Angel theme deck, but it is also required to be on the field for several cards to work (all reviewed this week).

Being a field card, it has to be on the field for the card to work, so be careful about Mystical Space Typhoons and other cards that will kill this card.

The Sanctuary in the Sky gets a solid 4.5/5 in an Angel theme deck, as it provides a solid defense, as well as opens up several combo possibilities with other angel cards.
