Saber Slash, sounds like something that came out of
Power Rangers...you destroy a number of cards on the
Field equal to the number of face-up Attack Position
"X-Saber" monsters you control.
Now, realistically, you break even card wise if you
have one...you give up this card, and destroy one.
Most likely your opponent's, as hopefully you don't
have to destroy your own card(s). Reasonably,
X-Saber's are pretty easy to summon.
At any random time in the game, you are probably
going to have two to four X-Sabers on the Field at a
time, obviously probably pending the very beginning,
or maybe the very end of a match. Probably two or
three is more realistic, which makes this card that
Today’s card up for review is Saber Slash. This
card is staple in the X-Saber deck. The whole deck
is built to swarm like crazy, so why not use 1 or
two copies of this card? You don’t even need to have
multiple monsters on the field for it to do it’s
job. At worst case, it’s a 1 for one, and best is a
+4. Simply put, if you use Sabers, you use this card
Saber Slash …
This card is as good as it looks … which, if u are
blind, is pretty good! It’s quite simple, and one of
the most handy tools the X-Sabers have at their
disposal. Destroy a number of face-up cards equal to
the number of ATK position X-Sabers u’ve got. Easy?
Well, yeah, except it has to be face-up cards. So
inactive traps are safe. So are your opponent’s face
down monsters. And if u have more than say 2 or 3
face-up X-sabers, u have to remember that u must
destroy the exact same number of cards that u have
in ATK position. Therefore, u may have to switch
some monsters into DEF mode in order to compensate
for your opponent’s lack of targets on the field ...
or u can also destroy some of your OWN cards to make
up the difference, need be ...
It’s one of those cards that can quickly help u get
back into the duel if u are losing … but doesn’t do
much to secure u if u are already winning.
If u play X-Sabers – play 1 or 2 of these … just in

Saber Slash is one of the must cards for an X-Saber
deck, as you can see from its effect. Its pretty
much a Smashing Ground. Course theres a slight
difference, it can hit more than one card and it can
hit spells and traps so long as they are face up.
Royal Decree, Royal Oppression, Skill Drain and a
few others are examples of cards that people still
use that are possible targets for Saber Slash. As I
said its a must for Saber decks, its similar to
Smashing Ground though you pick your target and you
can hit more than one card.
Field nukes are so
great in our current metagame. So today we are
reviewing Saber Slash. This card is pretty much a
watered down icarus attack for X Sabers. It has it's
ups and downs. First of all you may only destroy
face up cards which makes it so you cannot nuke
their backrows unless they are face up. This card is
still good because it is not hard to get many X
Sabers on the field so you can blow up all or almost
all of their monsters easily. Great monster removal
for X Sabers and good for when you are going for
game or just when you can't get over their monster
or clearing the way for a discard. As you can see
this card is good in many situations. Run 2 in your
X Saber deck.

Here we have Saber Slash, Today's Card of the Day.
Destroy a number of face-up
cards on the field equal to the number of face-up
Attack Position "X-Saber" monsters you control.
Hey I like this card. Saber
slash is a normal spell with quite a bit of
potential. I consider saber slash a pretty good card
for one big reason, it doesn't target. That means it
can get around card like Arkus, the lightsworn Druid
and Tytannial. Its pretty effective at switching
advantage if you can get out a few x-sabers quickly.
Swarm with Gardestrike, Faultroll and Airbellum and
this sucker becomes as good as a lightning vortex.
Obviously this card is only meant for x-sabers, and
can't be played in anything else. For X-sabers I
consider this a near staple and can definitely see
this card becoming better as X-sabers continue to
