Devastating Traps: Deck Devastation Virus
Duelists! I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, am back! And this time, I am speaking in my official capacity as Supreme Ruler of the Dueling world!
As you must already know, I recently triumphed in the largest Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME tournament ever held. Consequently, I gained the power and prestige I have always deserved!
But being an omnipotent ruler isn’t all fun and games. As the leader of the Dueling world, I have several responsibilities. When Duelists swarm Michael Balan and ask him to sign their Grapha cards, I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, need to be there. When Duelists audacious enough to call my victory a “fluke” challenge members of my army to battle, I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, am obligated to step in and remind those challengers why only fools cross Grapha!
And now, it is my duty to inform all Duelists about an ongoing threat to public health. A devastating virus has recently been spreading through the Decks of my weakest subjects. It is the Deck Devastation Virus. I may be responsible for this outbreak. Balan Tributed me all throughout YCS Long Beach in order to infect the Decks of our enemies, and now the virus is getting out of hand.
The Deck Devastation Virus obliterates all opposing forces with 1500 ATK or less. It proved to be a handy weapon in the germ warfare implemented by my Dark World army in California. Enemy Insects, Beasts, and Beast-Warriors fall to the Graveyard as the Deck Devastation Virus runs through them. I’ve heard the crushing of Inzektor Dragonfly’s exoskeleton and the cries of many Rabbits upon activation of my virus.
Fortunately for my Dark World army, we are the best at harnessing the power of this virus. In order to infect an opponent’s Deck with the Deck Devastation Virus and rid an enemy Duelist of all monsters with 1500 or fewer ATK for 3 turns, a sacrifice must be made. 1 DARK monster with 2000 ATK or more must be Tributed in order to activate the Deck Devastation Virus. I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, am always willing to be Tributed for this worthy cause. My power is eternal, and I can return from the Graveyard over and over again. Visiting the Graveyard for 1 turn is of no consequence to me!
Of course, it isn’t only my Dark World army that has begun experimenting with germ warfare. My sources tell me that the tombkeepers of Egypt have also discovered this power. A Gravekeeper’s Assailant or Gravekeeper’s Descendant given an extra 500 ATK from Necrovalley has the requisite ATK needed to infect an opposing Deck with the Deck Devastation Virus. Futuristic Malefic monsters, including Malefic Stardust Dragon, also have what it takes to unleash this uncontrollable virus, as do mega Dragons from space like Darkflare Dragon.
This is what concerns me. While I, Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World, am immune to the Deck Devastation Virus, I fear for some of my subjects. Worthy Fiends including Broww, Huntsman of Dark World and Tour Guide From the Underworld do not have the power they need to resist the Deck Devastation Virus. It’s great when the virus is used against our enemies. But it pains me to see it used against the supporters of my army!
Loyal subjects! Beware of this rampant virus. Avoid contact with it, and raise your monsters’ Attack Points (perhaps with The Gates of Dark World) in order to boost their immunity. The Deck Devastation Virus is a powerful tool for us to use in our Dark World domination. We mustn’t let it backfire!
