Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus
THIS is what makes the deck come together
monster-wise. Respectable ATK, and
auto-crystallization out of the deck upon summon,
almost Stratos-like. Being that your opponent would
end up killing it at some point and sending it to
your S/T zone, you've gotten 2 things in the S/Ts
for one card, which makes Crystal Beacon legal, Rare
Value legal, powers Crystal Raigeki, replaces itself
if Crystal Promised, and gets you halfway to Crystal
Abundance with just one card.
This guy gives the deck the raw speed it needs
monster-wise to get its combos off.
Closing Crystal Beast week, we look at the strongest
monster of the
family, Sapphire Pegasus. Does being the strongest
Crystal Beast mean
you're the best Crystal Beast? Let's see.
Sapphire Pegasus is a Level 4 monster with 1800
attack and 1200 defense. It is also a Wind monster
who is of the Beast order of things. When summoned,
whether Normal, Flip, or Special summoned, you can
place one Crystal Beast monster from your Hand,
Deck, or Graveyard as a Continuous Magic card.
Let's talk about that. Selecting a choice from your
Hand is good, it allows you to possibly add it to
the Field later. Adding a monster from your Deck is
awesome! Being able to add any Crystal Beast monster
from your Deck, even only to the Magic or Trap zone
isn't too shabby.
It's good that you can select something from your
Graveyard too, but unless they were Heavy Stormed or
MST'd or something, they shouldn't be in your
Like the others, you can send this to your open
Magic or Trap slot when destroyed, instead of to the
Art: 5/5 Love it
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
Crystal Beast - Sapphire Pegasus
This is the reason anyone plays this theme. The
ability to provide additional support, fill up the
spell/trap zone for various support, provide deck
thinning, and aid in deck tempo. This is a
beautifully designed theme orientated monster.
Sapphire Pegasus, now here is a solid theme support
card. Solid stats for the gem beast deck, combined
with an effect that is actually beneficial to the
deck type!!!! What a concept.
Needless to say, either grabbing something from the
deck or grave is a huge plus, free cards is always a
great thing. And since there is no restriction on
the summoning requirement to activate this you have
a very viable card. Really if you are running the
gem beast deck there is no reason to not be running
In gem beast: 5/5

Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus
When this card is Normal Summoned, Flip Summoned, or
Special Summoned, you can place 1 "Crystal Beast"
monster from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard face-up
in your Spell & Trap Card Zone; it is treated as a
Continuous Spell Card. If this card is destroyed
while it is in a Monster Card Zone, you can place it
face-up in your Spell & Trap Card Zone as a
Continuous Spell Card instead of sending it to the
Well here is the most important card to Crystal
Beast decks, Sapphire Pegasus. This is the monster
that tutors for the others and is the key card to
make the deck work effectively. With so many ways to
get Pegasus out on the field like Crystal Beacon and
Crystal Promise. This is the card that makes other
support monsters of Crystal Beasts like Crystal
Beast Cobalt Eagle work. The 1800 attack is decent,
can take down some of the many floaters that isn't
Gravekeeper's Spy but like the others, is easily
countered with larger monsters. The low attack of
all the Crystal Beasts hinder them a bit, but they
can still work well as long as you play it all right
and get the right monsters with Pegasus. Solid card
and it makes Crystal Beast decks work.
Traditional: 1/5 it being a wind, still doesn't help
Advanced: 5/5 Being the tutor for Crystal Beast
decks, it gets the highest rating, sure it isn't as
splashable, but getting the support monsters that
you need, is just as good.

Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus
As Elemental Hero Stratos is the engine for E and D
Hero Decks, so Sapphire Pegasus is for Crystal Beast
decks. When Sapphire Pegasus is Normal Summoned,
Flip Summoned, or Special Summoned it can take a
Crystal Beast from your deck, hand, or graveyard and
put it in the Spell/Trap Zone as a continuous spell.
This effect is amazing because you will always be
able to use the effect so long as you have open
zones in the Spell/Trap zone. This card sets up
perfectly for Ancient City Rainbow Ruins and Crystal
Abundance. If Sapphire Pegasus is destroyed, then
you have at least two conintuous spells. This will
allow you to use cards like Crystal Beacon and Rare
Value much easier and more consistently. Just
remember, Sapphire Pegasus only works in a dedicated
Crystal Beast deck. Make sure to run this card in
3's along with 5-10 more Crystal Beasts in your
Traditional Crystal Beast: 5/5

Beast - Sapphire Pegasus
have reached the best support card that
crystal beasts have going for them, Crystal
beast - Sapphire Pegasus. It has a great
1800 attack that is able to stand up to just
about anything short of a cyber dragon or a
monarch. Its effect is what really makes it
a great support card for the gem beast
theme. Its effect is very similar to that
of elemental hero stratos, in the sense it
lets you search out any crystal beast from
your deck to your spell and trap zone that
you desire. This combined with a late game
crystal promise on a ruby carbuncle, can be
absolutly gamebreaking. Also, it can
retrieve monsters from the graveyard if you
have ran out of pegasus's or rubys in your
the tiger are pretty much the only
beatsticks the gems have. This should
DEFINENTLY be ran in 3's, because it is by
far the best monster support the gems have.
if your running gem beasts, run 3 of these.
They will speed the deck up tremendously,
and set you up for great otk's.
Traditional: 1/5 better off running La
jynn cause its a dark
Advanced: 5/5 in crystal beast decks
its a pretty cool pony
would like to contact me or make any
comments about my articles, you can reach me
on my aim at blackluster777 or on the pojo
boards at ryan spicer. Would be great to
hear from everyone. PEACE!

Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus
The best card in the Crystal Beast theme, this guy
comes with 1800 ATK and an effect that searches your
deck, graveyard, or hand for a Crystal Beast monster
and adds it to your spell/trap zone. It’s a +1 if
you get the Gem from your deck or graveyard
obviously, and that’s very important for this deck
because some of the best CB spell cards require 2 or
more gems in your S/T zone to work. You’ll want to
search your deck about 95% of the time, to thin it
and to get full access to any gem you might need.
Starting a game with 1 of these in your hand
instantly puts you in a good position, it’s
literally THAT important for the deck to work.
People who think this isn’t the best CB monster, or
people who don’t run this in 3’s in every single CB
deck they ever imagine, let alone build, is fooling
themselves. This card is the entire reason why CB’s
are even IN CONSIDERATION for being a good deck
In battle, this guy can take down anything that’s
not a tribute, but still dies to a powered up Card
Trooper, but so does anything else except spy’s.
This card is just simply really, really good. One of
the things you’ll want to remember is to Ruby
Carbuncle with the search effect when you get a
Pegasus on the first turn. That way, not only will
you not draw 1 of him later on in the game and be
forced to set him or discard him, but you can use
his effect later with Rainbow Ruin and special
summon a wave of monsters to attack for game, or for
a huge wall to defend your Life Points.
One situation that you might want to consider is
getting 1 Pegasus and 1 Rescue Cat opening turn. In
that case, always play RC first. If you don’t,
you’ll likely draw into an Amethyst Cat and make
Rescue Cat far more useless if you play more than 1,
since in any normal CB deck, after using 1 Rescue
Cat, won’t be able to use the others, if you use 2
or 3, because the only targets for it are your 3
Amethyst Cats. Besides, you can possibly use the 2nd
turn to accumulate a huge backfield of Gems and get
a Rainbow Ruin up and just take control of the game.
It’s also not a great idea to use a Pegasus to get
another Pegasus. You’ll want to save Pegasus for
attacking on the field, so make sure to just Normal
Summon Pegasus or get him out with Beacon. The only
reason you’ll want to get him with another Pegasus’
effect is if you have 4 Gems in your S/T zone, one
being Ruby, and then summon a Pegasus, get another
Pegasus with it’s effect, then use Rainbow Ruin’s
5th effect to special summon Ruby in defense mode,
and special summon 1-2 more Pegasus and maybe an
Amber Mammoth (using Rainbow Ruin to draw a card
before-hand though obviously =]) and possibly win
Traditional: 1/5 – Like I said before, no one uses
CB’s in Traditional.
Advanced: 5/5 – If you run less than 3 Pegasus in a
CB deck, you’re literally begging for bad results.
