“I activate De-Spell, which destroys one spell car on the field,” said Raphael. Your Swords are gone! Swords of Revealing Light is destroyed. Guardian Baou, destroy his Watapon! Watapon is destroyed and Guardian Baou’s ATK rises to 2300. Guardian Aeatos, destroy his Magic Swordsman! Neo is destroyed. That ends my turn.

“I Summon Obnoxious Celtic Guard (1400/1200) in Defense Mode,” said Yami. That ends my turn.

“My move, Pharaoh,” said Raphael. Swords of Revealing Light is destroyed by its effect. Once I attack, this Duel is over! I activate Change of Heart, which allows me to control your monster for the duration of the turn. So your Celtic Guard is mine this turn. That ends my turn.

“I sacrifice my Celtic Guard to Summon Summoned Skull (2500/1200) in Defense Mode,” said Yami. Then I set one card face-down and end my turn.

“Guardian Angle Joan, destroy his Summoned Skull!” said Raphael.

“I activate Interdimensional Matter Transporter!” said Yami. This card removes my Summoned Skull from the field until the end of the turn. Summoned Skull disappears from the field then reappears on the field after Joan’s attack.

“You may have gotten lucky this time but next turn, this Duel is over!” said Raphael. I end my turn.

“I activate Dian Keto the Cure Master, which raises my Life Points by 1000,” said Yami. Yami’s Life Points rise to 1200. Then I set one card face-down to end my turn.

“Guardian Eatos, destroy his Summoned Skull!” said Raphael.

“I activate Enchanted Javelin!” said Yami. This card increases my Life Points by the ATK of the monster attacking. Yami’s Life Points rise to 8300 and Summoned Skull is destroyed. Guardian Angle Joan, attack his Life Points directly! Yami’s Life Points drop to 5000. Guardian Ceal, direct attack! Yami’s Life Points drop to 2800. Guardian Baou, direct attack on his Life Points! Yami’s Life Points drop to 500. One more attack and your soul is mine!

“I Summon Celtic Guardian (1400/1200) in Defense Mode,” said Yami. That ends my turn.

“Game over Pharaoh,” said Raphael. Guardian Baou, destroy his Celtic Guardian! Celtic Guardian is destroyed and Guardian Baou’s ATK rises to 3300. Guardian Ceal, wipe out his Life Points! Yami’s Life Points drop to 0. I told you I was going to get your soul. Now for losing this Duel, you must pay the price, by giving up your soul. The Seal shrinks around him and his soul is taken. Now I’m off to see my master. Raphael races to Dartz’s lair.

“Master Dartz, I have captured the Pharaoh’s soul successfully,” said Raphael.

“So you have,” said Dartz. Well done.

“Thank you, master,” said Raphael.

“Now it’s time for me to take Joey’s soul,” said Alister. Meanwhile, Yugi is still alive and looking for Yami.

“Pharaoh, where are you?” asked Yugi. I’ll find you!

 

 

Raphael’s Guardians of Darkness (Part 5)

“I activate Shooting Star Bow-Ceal,” said Raphael. I equip it to Big Shield Gardna. Then, I Summon Guardian Ceal (1700/1400) in Attack Mode. Guardian Ceal’s ATK rises to 2200 by The Seal of Orichalcos. That ends my turn.

“I set one card face-down and sacrifice my Giant Soldier of Stone to Summon Berformet (1400/1800) in Defense Mode. Next, I activate Monster Reincarnation, which allows me to bring back one monster from the Graveyard and add it to my hand. Then, I set one more card face-down to end my turn. Make your move, Raphael.

“Guardian Angle Joan, destroy his Berformet!” said Raphael.

“I activate Ultimate Offering and Magic Cylinder!” said Yami. Magic Cylinder inflicts the ATK at your Life Points. Raphael’s Life Points drop to 800. Ultimate Offering allows us to Summon extra monsters to the field at a cost of 500 Life Points per monster.

“Guardian Ceal, destroy his Berformet!” said Raphael. Berformet is destroyed. That ends my turn.

“I set one monster in Defense Mode and end my turn,” said Yami.

“I activate Swords of Revealing Light!” said Raphael. This card prevents any monster on your side of the field from attacking for 3 turns and it flips all of your face-down monsters face up. So your Winged Dragon, Guardian of the Fortress #1 is your face-down monster, how pathetic. That ends my turn.

“I Summon Watapon (200/300) in Defense Mode,” said Yami. Then I activate Card of Sanctity, which allows both of us to draw until we have 6 cards. Next, I activate my own Swords of Revealing Light. Now you can’t attack me for 3 turns. That ends my turn.

“I activate Wicked Breaking Flamberge - Baou,” said Raphael. This card will get equipped to Big Shield Gardna. Next, I Summon Guardian Baou (800/400) in Attack Mode. Guardian Baou’s ATK rises to 1300 by The Orichalcos. My monster gains 1000 ATK points whenever it destroys one of your monsters as a result of battle. No monster in your Deck is strong enough to defeat my army of Guardian monsters. Since your Swords are still in play, I end my turn.

“I Summon Neo the Magic Swordsman (1700/1000) in Defense Mode and end my turn,” said Yami.

“My Swords of Revealing Light may expire next turn but yours will expire this turn,” said Raphael.

“Explain!” said Yami.

“I activate De-Spell, which destroys one spell car on the field,” said Raphael. Your Swords are gone! Swords of Revealing Light is destroyed. Guardian Baou, destroy his Watapon!

“Heart of the Cards, guide me,” said Yami to himself. I Summon Beaver Warrior (1200/1500) in Defense Mode. That ends my turn.

“I Summon Big Shield Gardna (100/2600) in Defense Mode,” said Raphael. Now I can equip my Gardna with the Twin Swords of Flashing Light - Tryce card. With this in play I sacrifice my Celtic Guardian to Summon Guardian Tryce (1900/1700) in Attack Mode. Guardian Tryce’s ATK rises to 2400 by The Orichalcos. Guardian Tryce destroy his Beaver Warrior! Beaver Warrior is destroyed.

“This Duel is far from over, Raphael,” said Yami.

“It may as well be, I‘m destroying every one of your defenses one by one,” said Raphael.  Give up yet? I’ve got plenty more Guardians where those came from.

“No matter how tough the situation is I won’t give up,” said Yami.

“I activate Shooting Star Bow - Ceal,” said Raphael. I equip it to Big Shield Gardna. Then, I Summon Guardian Ceal (1700/1400) in Attack Mode. Guardian Ceal’s ATK rises to 2200 by The Seal of Orichalcos. That ends my turn.

            “I activate Shallow Grave,” said Yami. This card allows us to bring back one of our monsters and set it on the field.
