  • Potentially high attack depending on number of cards in your hand.
  • Its attack reduction on your opponent's monster is permanent.
  • Destroys monsters that your opponent summons if it's below 2,000 attack.
  • Can be special summoned, but will only last until the end phase.
  • Can still be useful even if it has low attack.


  • Difficult to summon.
  • Can only last for 1 turn if special summoned.


Tribute summoning

Getting the tribute fodders can be easy if you use tokens or Ra's Disciple, but it won't be good if you don't pair them with other cards that can take advantage of it. You will also need some protection spell/trap cards in order to tribute summon for the next turn, or use Double Summon instead, making it quite a heavy investment and can be bad if your opponent can counter it.

Special summon

Special summoning Slifer will only make it stay until the end phase, but it can still be effective if you summon it during your opponent's turn before they summon monsters. It can also still be good if you want an extra attack during your turn if you can secure the win.

Draw power

Draw cards for certain monster type/attributes like Wonder Wand, Cards of the Red Stone, or even Soul Transition can be good if your deck synergizes with them, but cards like Jar of Greed or Good Goblin Housekeeping can be used in almost all decks, and it can even work as a surprise attack increase for Slifer. Golden Bamboo can also be good if you can pair that up with cards like Maha Vailo or Mythical Beast Cerberus.

Dealing with set monsters

Since Slifer can destroy, or cripple your opponent's summoned monsters, people will often set their monsters to defend against an attack. You can use cards like Meteorain or Big Bang shot to inflict some piercing damage when attacking them, or you can simply go for direct attacks instead. You can use cards like Shadowslayer, Secret Pass to the Treasures, or Shooting Star Bow - Ceal. Gravity Axe - Grarl can also be helpful to keep them locked and prevent flip effects.

nah, the legal Ra is actually more rubbish than this one, if you think about it.

At least this card doesn't make you a sitting duck against Burn.
anyone know of a deck for him? I only know that the infinite cards card and him are the only two I got to make a deck thus far :P

Your WiFi might be glitching out, I find that connection to the free WiFi at TGI Fridays gets me plenty of luck summoning Slider, in fact I summoned multiples while there.

you went a long way for a bad pun lol

I love how every "newbie" is up in arms about how the gods aren't like the anime and CAN be effected by spell/traps. But the VERY FIRST THING yugi does against slifer the sky dragon is use spellbinding circle on it lol.

The selection box has "60 packs" and each pack contains 12 cards. Each of the 60 pack guarantees a SR or a UR.

Tested - shallow & burst work but he still sends himself to the grave in the end phase after flipping.
