X-Sabers got a big boost from the cards in Absolute Powerforce, and The Shining Darkness is about to kick them up another notch. The new Field Spell, Saber Vault, will help them overcome their biggest weakness – the low ATK of their commonly used monsters. It will also build on one of their greatest strengths – the power to swarm the field with enough ATK to wipe out an opponent in a single turn.
We already got a glimpse of the first 1900 ATK X-Saber, XX-Saber Boggart Knight. Saber Vault helps bring other members of the X-Saber team up to its power. Saber Vault is a Field Spell Card that gives all face-up X-Saber monsters 100 more Attack Points for each of its Levels, it’ll give your weakest X-Sabers the small boost they need to destroy your opponent’s monsters in battle.
With Saber Vault active, X-Saber Airbellum jumps to an intimidating 1900 ATK, while XX-Saber Emmersblade and XX-Saber Fulhelmknight boast a respectable 1600 ATK along with their effects. XX-Saber Garsem will have 2000 ATK, even without another X-Saber monster on the field.
One of the coolest things about Saber Vault is that it makes your strongest monsters even stronger. The Level 5 X-Sabers, XX-Saber Gardestrike and X-Saber Wayne, are boosted to 2600 ATK by Saber Vault. XX-Saber Hyunlei and X-Saber Urbellum each have 2900 ATK withSaber Vault on the field, while XX-Saber Faultroll has 3000 ATK. XX-Saber Gottoms wields a whopping 4000 ATK with Saber Vault active!
These big attack boosts are great for X-Saber Decks because they Summon lots of monsters with cards like Gottoms’ Emergency Call. Saber Vault gives your monsters the strength they need to finish off your opponent in a single turn.
Back when Dark Strike Fighter was legal in tournaments, Duelists would count up the total number of monster Levels they had on the field and multiply it by 200 to see if they can deal enough damage to beat the opponent that turn. Saber Vault lets X-Saber Duelists multiply the total Level of their X-Saber monsters by 100 instead, when calculating their opponents’ demise. For Decks like X-Sabers that swarm the field quickly, 100 extra ATK for each Level builds up fast damage. Gottoms’ Emergency Call and XX-Saber Faultroll Special Summon X-Sabers to make sure the effect of Saber Vault adds up. With Saber Vault active, a field of XX-Saber Faultroll, X-Saber Airbellum, XX-Saber Emmersblade, and XX-Saber Fulhelmknightwill already have over 8000 ATK. Since you’re going to be attacking with all your monsters, it doesn’t matter that Saber Vault lowers the DEF of your monsters.
Big fields get big boosts from Saber Vault. XX-Saber Faultroll and Gottoms’ Emergency Call make it easy for your field to look like this
Not only will Saber Vault let your weaker X-Sabers defeat your opponent’s monsters in battle, it will also boost your strongest monsters and improve your Deck’s ability to defeat an opponent in a single turn. As X-Saber Decks keep getting support cards like Saber Vault, they’re gradually rising to the top of the competitive scene.
