SOI Set Sneak Peak
By: Coin Flip



Anyone who HASN’T been to a Limited Event probably won’t do well next weekend no matter how much they read (unless they’re really pro or really lucky) so I won’t bother introducing everyone here to the concepts behind Limited Play. That’s a much larger topic. But here’s an overview for Shadow of Infinity.

All of the emperors suck horribly, but the LIGHT one (Hamon) can actually be summoned if you manage to pull three copies of Samsara or Ancient Gear Castle combined. The DARK can be summoned, but there are only two Fiends in the set, one dies easily, and one is a Super Rare and a ritual.

Hero Kids can make your field very large very quickly, but it isn’t worth it. You’ll deck out. If you don’t, then there are two Tribute Monsters worth playing in Sealed anyway.

Antique Gear Cannon (500/500 Machine) is a nifty 500 damage. Don’t ignore it. The same thing goes for Instantaneous Bomber (Rare 1000/1000). It is one of three ways to kill a monster in SOI, so use it. The two beatsticks of the set are a 1600/1500 Machine that boosts its own ATK in a Machine King-like way, and Disciple of the Forbidden Spell, which doubles as an awesome beatstick and a method of killing monsters.

There’s a 2500/800 double tribute monster in the line of Big Core and the B.E.S. monsters. It may have more longevity than them, though.

There is a 4-star 2400 ATK monster in the set that is bomb-ass in Limited. It increases the likelihood of both win conditions in most Limited games; deckout and losing by LP. It’s a normal rare, and whenever it attacks or is attacked, the opponent draws a card. It is one of two cards that, if you pull them, will win you the flight.

The other Insects are a 2400 Trampler, a 2000 ATK special summon monster that destroys m/t cards (yours and your opponent’s), and a 2800/2600 beast of an insect that can be Special Summoned by removing two Insect monsters from your graveyard. It’s a rare.

A 100/100 WATER/Aqua is the hot card of the set, and it’s basically a Sinister Serpent redux. It is meh in Limited.

A 700/1000 will help you deck your opponent out, but it requires that you play multiples. =\ A 1000/1000 that increases its own ATK by 500 for each copy of itself in the graveyard is another thing to watch out for. If you get three, you’ll have another 2000 ATK monster.

Sand Moth is the best defender in the set with 2000, but don’t expect it to win you every game. It’s a stall card.

The two Ritual Monsters of the set are both incredible creatures. If you pull one, consider yourself very lucky.

Seal of Succession will occasionally be cheap revival for strong monsters.

“Super Junior Showdown” will end your opponent’s Battle Phase, and “Damage Condenser” will give you more monsters. Karma Cut is the only monster-killing card in the whole set that isn’t a monster. One other card will also increase your LP if a monster of yours dies in battle.

If you pull multiples of any of these cards (especially the 2800/2600 or Disciple of the Forbidden Spell or the 2400/0 4 star...) I hate you.

This set isn’t nearly as good for Sealed events as EEN and CRV were. CRV had sexy Sealed/Limited events.

Pretty much, look for the following cards (if their actual name is confirmed, I will not post their effects or stats)

Disciple of the Forbidden Spell (call EARTH)
Chainsaw Insect
Ruin, Queen of Oblivion
Demise, King of Armageddon
Anteatereatingant
A 2800/2600 Insect
A 2400/600 Insect


And, to a lesser extent
Grass Phantom
Treeborn Frog
Sand Moth
