Formerly: Ritual Magic Card


Ritual Spell Cards, known as Ritual Magic Cards (Japanese: ()(しき)()(ほう)カード Gishiki Mahō Kādo) in the TCG prior to Magician's Force and the OCG, are a type of Spell Card used to Ritual Summon Ritual Monsters.

Ritual Spell Cards typically require the following conditions to be met in order to be activated:

  • The correct Ritual Spell Card in your hand.
  • The corresponding Ritual Monster in your hand.
  • Monsters in your hand and/or side of the field whose total Levels are at least the Level of the Ritual Monster. (Some Ritual Spell Cards require the total Levels to be equal to the Level of the Ritual Monster.)
  • A free Monster Card Zone into which to Special Summon the Ritual Monster.
  • A free Spell & Trap Card Zone to activate the Ritual Spell Card in.

In some early video games, Ritual Spell Cards were colored blue like Ritual Monsters in the OCG/TCG, instead of the usual green.

Playing style

Activating a Ritual Spell Card can tend to be somewhat demanding, and for that reason Ritual Spell Cards are arguably the least used type of Spell Card.

Usually only 'universal' Ritual Spell Cards, such as "Contract with the Abyss" and "Advanced Ritual Art", have seen play; "Advanced Ritual Art" in particular is used due to its ability to use monsters from the Main Deck. However, "Advanced Ritual Art" is currently Semi-Limited in the TCG.

Some Ritual Spell Cards, such as those for "Divine Grace - Northwemko" and "Garlandolf, King of Destruction", "Ritual of Grace" and "Ritual of Destruction" respectively, have secondary effects that can be activated by banishing the Ritual Spell Card from the Graveyard.

The "Gishki" archetype often supports Ritual Monsters and Ritual Spell Cards in general, although tend to support their own "Evigishki" Ritual Monsters.
