RiryokuRising Energy

Basically this card serves almost the same purpose as cards that boosts attack damage. Just be mindful that this card cannot be activated during damage calculation. It can be activated from the start of the Damage Step until before damage calculation.





Stat changesYour monsters gain ATK


Amusing card.
It's like "Gift of the martyr" without sending your Monster to GY
It's like "my body as a Shield" but If I rename this card, "my Ally as a Shield" as name

It's nothing like MBAS.. ;')
works amazing for naturia deck :D definitely worth picking it up my monster went up to 4000 attack and my opponent lost 2000 life points ,he left lol
It would be a good card in Mako's or Naturia's deck
Hella good in Venus
Just 5 rating? Wait and see this card...
Maybe you can use this in a hunder deck since you can have two monsters in one turn and easily bait your opponent to attack into them due to their low attack

A poor man's Mirror Wall for Shark and Hunder.
I thought it's "tribute 1 other face-up monster". Scary!
Sick. So it's basically some kind of Trap Riryoku / Reverse - Mirror Wall / Rising Energy w/o discarding 1

It's more like a card to ensure victory rather than a card to turn the table. Very good for aggressive decks.

I'll field this one. It lets you draw 2 cards then banishes your opponents entire deck.
