In Absolute Powerforce, XX-Saber Emmersblade pulled together the X-Saber theme and allowed X-Saber Duelists to reach new heights in tournaments. The Shining Darkness has another new X-Saber that will make X-Saber Decks better than ever: XX-Saber Darksoul.
XX-Saber Darksoul is just what X-Saber Duelists need to rise to the top of the competitive scene. When it’s sent to the Graveyard while under your control, you can add any X-Saber monster from your Deck to your hand during the End Phase. That’s right – it can be sent from the field to the Graveyard in any way and its effect will activate, just like Sangan. You can use it for a Synchro Summon, let it get destroyed in battle, or watch your opponent destroy it with a Spell or Trap Card. If it’s destroyed on your opponent’s turn, you can even grab an X-Saber to use on your next turn.
Thanks to Darksoul, X-Saber Duelists finally have a reliable way to search their Decks for XX-Saber Faultroll and add it to their hands, because Darksoul can search for ANY X-Saber monster. With XX-Saber Emmersblade and XX-Saber Boggart Knight making Faultroll so easy to Summon, you’ll want to grab it from your Deck as quickly as you can. If you already have Faultroll in your hand and are having trouble getting 2 X-Sabers on the field at the same time, don’t worry. You can use XX-Saber Darksoul to search your Deck for Boggart Knight or Emmersblade instead.
XX-Saber Darksoul is a Level 3 Beast-Type monster, which means you can Special Summon it from your Deck alongside X-Saber Airbellum with the effect of Rescue Cat. Then you can Tune them together to Synchro Summon a Level 6 monster, including XX-Saber Hyunlei. During your End Phase, you’ll be able to search your Deck for any X-Saber monster with the effect of XX-Saber Darksoul.
Even without a Tuner, XX-Saber Darksoul is a solid card to draw. Setting Darksoul in Defense Position so your opponent can destroy it will help you set up your hand for the rest of the Duel. If you Set Darksoul on your first turn, you’ll be off to a strong start.
XX-Saber Darksoul will definitely be played in competitive X-Saber Decks. If you’re an X-Saber Duelist ready to take your Deck to the next level, you’ll want to get your hands on it at the upcoming Sneak Peek for The Shining Darkness.
