Monster cards

These are simple yet effective cards. Every card has the name that is specified on it. There are various levels involved in the card which determines the summon of the monster. There are seven attributes of a card and twenty-five types which only matter when a card text specifies so. On effect monsters, the Text explains their effects. The ATK is the stat when the monster is in the attack position. Def is when the monster is in the defense position. The terminology will take a couple of minutes to understand the value of every text which comes in very handy in the game.
