The Aesir are a trio of heavy hitting Synchro Monsters based on the ancient gods of the Vikings, and you’ll only be able to find them in Storm of Ragnarok! Each of these Level 10 monsters have incredibly high ATK and DEF, can Special Summon themselves from the Graveyard, and have effects that will crush your opponents. We’ll be looking at Loki and Odin in the coming weeks but today you can read up on the ruler of the Nordic Beasts, Thor!
Thor, Lord of the Aesir is a Level 10 Synchro Monster that requires 1 “Nordic Beast” Tuner and 2 or more non-Tuner monsters as its Synchro Materials. If you’re playing Thor in your Nordic Beast deck then there’s 2 cards you’ll be able to use to Summon him easily. Tanngrisnir of the Nordic Beasts will Special Summon 2 Nordic Beast Tokens when it’s destroyed in battle and sent to the Graveyard, and with each of these Tokens being Level 3 you only need to Summon Guldfaxe of the Nordic Beasts (your Level 4 Tuner) and you’re all set. With just these 2 cards in your opening hand you’ll be able to Summon Thor on your second turn!Vanadis the Nordic Ascendant can also be used as your Tuner (for any of the Aesir, not just Thor), so having 3 copies of it along with 3 Guldfaxe and 3 Tanngrisnir will ensure you Summon Thor as quickly as possible.
Once you’ve Summoned Thor, Lord of the Aesir, you’ll be able to use it to smash through anything your opponent throws at you. During your turn, you can use Thor’s first effect to negate the effects of every face-up monster your opponent controls. Several Decks tend to rely on their monster effects to help them to survive opposing attacks and set up future plays. Take X-Sabers for example; XX-Saber Fulhelmknight’s only got 1300 ATK, but your opponent will just leave it out on the field since it can negate one of your attacks. If you’re playing against Monarchs or the new Fish Decks you’d normally be locked out of attacking by the effects of 2 Dupe Frogs, but with Thor they’re just sitting there waiting to be destroyed! With 3500 ATK you can even take down Shooting Star Dragon, or Red Nova Dragon by negating their effects and attacking. Shooting Star Dragon would go down because its flat out weaker than Thor, but Red Nova Dragon would still have enough ATK to take Thor down with it. And that’s where Thor’s other effect comes in!
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, Thor, Lord of the Aesir will be taken down by your opponent. But death is no obstacle for a god! You can Special Summon Thor from the Graveyard with its second effect! Whenever Thor’s destroyed by your opponent’s cards (including by battle) you can remove a “Nordic Beast” Tuner monster from your Graveyard to Special Summon Thor in the End Phase. If you used Guldfaxe of the Nordic Beasts to Synchro Summon Thor in the first place you’ll already have 1 chance to re-Summon Thor when he’s destroyed, and if you sent more Guldfaxes to the Graveyard (either by further Synchro Summons or effects like Vanadis of the Nordic Ascendant) your opponent will never be able to get rid of Thor permanantly! Also, when you Summon Thor in this way you get to inflict 800 points of damage to your opponent’s Life Points. After Thor takes down most of your opponent’s Life Points with its mega-high ATK that 800 could be enough to finish them off!
Thor, Lord of the Aesir lets you wield a power unlike any seen before in the history of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME and is most certainly a force to be reckoned with. If you’d like to crush your opponents with the power of a Viking god, be sure to look out for Thor at your localStorm of Ragnarok Sneak Peek!
