Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Reviews: Valkyrie Dritte

Valkyrie Dritte

[Fairy/Effect]

ATK/1,000 DEF/1,600

If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can add 1 “Valkyrie” card from your Deck to your hand, except “Valkyrie Dritte”. You can only use this effect of “Valkyrie Dritte” once per turn. Gains 200 ATK for each of your opponent’s banished monsters.

Valkyrie Dritte is a level 4 monster and a member of Valkyrie. She is one of the original Valkyries from the anime. She has an appearance of a warrior like all monsters in the archetype. I like her artwork as it fits well with Valkyries. However, she is a fairy type monster.

Anime History

Valkyrie Dritte makes her debut in the anime’s 194th episode. Zigfried von Schroeder plays this card during his duel against Seto Kaiba. He uses this card’s full potential throughout the banish. However, Seto Kaiba destroys one of Zigfried’s copies. Then, Zigfried tributes Valkyrie Dritte to summon Fortune Chariot.

Furthermore, Valkyrie Dritte’s effects in the anime are weaker than her effects on the real card. She does not have her first effect to add a Valkyrie to your hand. Also, her second effect is weaker in the anime. She only gains 100 ATK for each of your opponent’s banished monsters. Valkyrie Dritte’s effect on the real card gives 200 ATK for each of your opponent’s banished monsters.

Card Effects

Valkyrie Dritte’s first effect adds a monster with Valkyrie in its name from your deck to hand when she is normal or special summoned. This card’s effect is a great tool for searching for your best Valkyrie monsters. You gain a card without paying any cost. If the effect is free, then I am totally willing to accept it! Then, you have the right monster in your hand to summon on your next turn.

Valkyrie Dritte’s second effect gives 200 ATK to her for each of your opponent’s banished monsters. You can quickly increase her ATK with the right cards. For example, Valkyrie Dritte’s ATK becomes 2,000 if your opponent has five banished monsters. She becomes an offensive weapon on your field. She can deal major damage to your opponent, and can destroy their monsters by battle.

Overall, Valkyrie Driette is a useful card for Valkyrie decks. Her best effect is adding a Valkyrie from your deck to your hand. It is a great skill for quickly getting access to your deck’s best cards. This resourcefulness demands two or three copies of  Valkyrie Driette in a deck. She adds consistency and efficiency to Valkyries.

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