Egyptian God Cards

The Yugioh! cartoon introduced us all to the Egyptian God Cards.  These cards were produced by a character called Maxamillion Pegasus, who modeled them after what he saw on a stone tablet that was believed to house the nameless Pharaoh’s memories.  Now, in the trading card game for Yugioh, these cards are extremely powerful and are three cards in total.  One card for each of the Egyptian Gods.  These Gods are Obelisk the Tormentor, Slifer the Sky Dragon, and The Winged Dragon of Ra.

In the cartoon we see the cards used to unlock the Pharaoh’s memories and then as the target of Marik who wants to use them to steal the Pharaoh’s strength.  Next, the cards are part of a plot to revive a beast from ten thousand years ago.  This beast is called the Great Leviathan and is meant to destroy the world.  Lastly, the cards are seen as a way for the Pharaoh to go into a world comprised of memories where he must battle an enemy from his past.  Ultimately the Pharaoh merges all the god cards into one strength monster called The Creator of Light – Horakhty.

These Egyptian God Cards keep up a large amount of strength for any player in any duel, should they chose to put the cards into their deck.  So you would be smart to at the minimum have these cards since you can be sure others will in addition.  Don’t let them get the upper hand over you by playing Obelisk the Tormentor or Slifer the Sky Dragon against your strongest card, only to watch the chances of winning the duel slip away to nothing.

observe that these cards are often viewed as too powerful and difficult to combat to have in play for real life tournaments and duels.  Typically they are banned from play so if you plan on getting these cards, then you will have to use them for friendly duels only.
