Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Valkyrie Vierte

Valkyrie Vierte

[Fairy/Effect]

During your Main Phase: Excavate cards from the top of your Deck equal to the number of other “Valkyrie” monsters you control, and if you do, add 1 excavated Normal Spell/Trap to your hand, also send the remaining cards to the GY. Otherwise, shuffle all excavated cards into the Deck. When this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the GY: Special Summon 1 “Valkyrie” monster from your Deck. You can only use each effect of “Valkyrie Vierte” once per turn.

Valkyrie Vierte is a level 3 Fairy monster. I think her artwork is one of the best artworks in the archetype. She is a member of the Valkyrie archetype. Her offensive and defensive stats are not impressive, but her effects make her a strong card in Valkyrie decks. Her effects make the deck more consistent by gaining key cards.

Valkyrie Vierte’s first effect excavates cards from the top of your deck as the same number of Valkyries on your field. Then, you add one excavated Normal Spell or Trap to your hand. This skill is amazing for gaining a free card every turn. You can slightly expand your resources by having two or three Valkyries on the field. You will gain one of the deck’s key Normal Spell cards such as Goddess Skuld’s Oracle

Valkyrie Vierte’s second effect special summons a Valkyrie from the deck when she is destroyed. This effect has a lot of potential. First, you can use her ability to special summon another Valkyrie Vierte from the deck. She is able to cycle herself and remain a threat on the field. Furthermore, you may also use this effect to special summon a powerful card such as Valkyrie Brunhilde.

However, your opponent’s can dodge her second skill. First, your opponent can banish her from the duel. It is the most effective way to remove her presence. Valkyrie does not have effective cards to return banished cards to the field or deck. This strategy also stops Valkyrie Vierte’s first skill from being used every turn. Your opponent can also destroy her by a card’s effect, but you can return her to the field with Monster Reborn!

Overall, Valkyrie Vierte is a great card for Valkeryie decks. Her effects give advantages to you by adding cards to your hand or field. You are basically drawing two cards every turn. In addition, this effect helps set up your Goddesses on the field. I recommend playing two three copies of Valkyrie Vierte in your deck to take full advantage of her effects.

Card Rating: 4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
