Since it only lasts for one turn, you need to plan accordingly so that it doesn’t get Counterattack Negated, but once you do, his attack will be almost unbeatable.

All 10 of these cards are an excellent choice to add to your collection. They have fantastic art and are super attractive in their foil versions. And depending on how many colors and leaders you play, these cards deserve slots in your deck designs. The Zenkai series brings plenty of change to DBSCG and takes the game to the next level.
