As referred to yesterday, we look an XYZ Monster in
Empress of Prophecy. This is a Rank 5, Light
attributed XYZ Monster, with 2000 attack and 1700
defense, who is XYZ Summoned with two Level 5
Spellcaster Monsters. Our Empress gains 300 attack
for each XYZ Material attached, so she comes out
with 2600 attack instead of her base 2000, which is
good. Her name fits her very well, by discarding an
XYZ Material, (lowering her attack to 2300, and then
back to 2000 if you are able to use the effect
twice) but by her effect lets you reveal the top 5
cards of your Deck, and you can destroy Monsters on
the Field up to the number of Spellbook Magic cards
you reveal. Also, you can return the cards back to
your Deck in any order. That's certainly a plus,
I'd give her a shot in your Spellbook Deck, maybe
even in just a Spellcaster Deck.
Empress of Prophecy is an interesting Xyz monster
for Spellbook decks. It has the ability to destroy
as many monsters on the field as Spellbooks you
reveal from the top five cards in your deck. Sense
you are playing tons of Spellbooks; the likely hood
that you will reveal at least one Spellbook is
pretty high. Not only that, but then you get to
rearrange those five cards in any order you wish.
That is an amazing effect in itself. Granted, you
will probably only get to draw the top card before
you shuffle your deck again, as Spellbook decks are
constantly searching for Spellbooks, but it is still
an awesome effect.
Getting level 5 monsters to the field to summon
Empress of Prophecy is what Spellbook/Prophecy decks
do best. You can use yesterday’s card, Justice of
Prophecy to search for High Priestess of Prophecy
and special summon her to the field. You can also
use Hermit of Prophecy or Temperance of Prophecy.
Then special summon a Spellcaster with Spellbook of
Life using a level 2 and 3 monster.
Getting Emperor of Prophecy and /or High Priestess
of Prophecy on the field is easy in a Spellbook
deck. Then use their effects and then Xyz summon
Empress of Prophecy and use her effects. Even if you
do not use Empress’s effect, you still have at least
a 2600 attack monster. More if you have other Xyz
monsters with materials on the field. If you took
your opponent’s Xyz monster with Emperor, that will
give you a pretty powerful punch.
Empress of Prophecy is one of those cards that
when you really sit and look at it, you're like
whoa, how did I not see this one before? Her
Highness is a Rank 5 LIGHT/Spellcaster-type Xyz
monster with 2000 ATK and 1700 DEF, and requires 2
level 5 Spellcasters to Xyz summon.
This card gains 300 ATK for each Xyz material
attached to a monster you control. Once per turn:
You can detach 1 Xyz material from this card;
shuffle your deck then reveal the top 5 cards of
your deck, and destroy monsters on the field up to
the number of Spellbook spell cards revealed, then
return the revealed cards to the top of the deck in
This cards has a lot going for it. Two level 5
Spellcasters are as easy as The Tricky and Gagaga
Magician. There are others, but those two are
perhaps the easiest to just do. While its 2000 ATK
may seem low for a Rank 5 monster, it goes up 300
for each Xyz material still attached to any other
Xyz monster you control. So if you have like, for
example, Thunder Spark Dragon on the field, that
alone is an extra 900 ATK, along with the 600
Empress gets for her materials. Ovelay Regen can get
you either an extra 300 ATK, or another chance for
her effect. Being a LIGHT spellcaster is good too,
as it works with Honest and can be used for the
Chaos equation. Empress' effect is very good in the
Spellbook/Prophecy deck, as once a turn you can
detach a Xyz material to shuffle your deck, and
reveal the top 5 cards. Any Spellbook spell cards
shown through this lets you destroy up to as many
monsters on the field. Then you get to put those 5
cards back on your deck, in any order you want.
While destroying monsters is always good, legal deck
manipulation is just as welcome in my book. You get
all this awesomeness wrapped in a great looking
card. If you are using the Spellbook deck, you
should be using this as well.
