CARDS: And the Next SJ ALPHA Promo Is...


UPDATE: The deadline date for becoming an SJ Alpha member and receiving Slifer the Sky Dragon is July 11, 2012! Sign up now before it's too late!

SHIPPING UPDATE: We have just received word that Slifer the Sky Dragon was sent out today (August 27, 2012), so expect to receive your cards soon!

Thinking about becoming an SJ Alpha member? If you become a member by July 11, 2012, you'll get our next Yu-Gi-Oh! promo card—Slifer the Sky Dragon! Fans of the print SHONEN JUMP magazine have already been treated to two previous God Cards (Obelisk and Ra), and now the trilogy is complete with this release. Just like the other God cards, each Slifer the Sky Dragon has Kazuki Takahashi Sensei's printed signature!

Slifer the Sky Dragon

Requires 3 Tributes to Normal Summon (cannot be Normal Set). This card's Normal Summon cannot be negated. When Normal Summoned, cards and effects cannot be activated. During the End Phase, if this card was Special Summoned: Send it to the Graveyard. This card gains 1000 ATK and DEF for each card in your hand. When a monster(s) is Normal or Special Summoned to your opponent's side of the field in face-up Attack Position: That monster(s) loses 2000 ATK, then if its ATK has been reduced to 0 as a result, destroy it.

Become a member today and receive this card as a promo gift!

I became a member a while back and I STILL haven't received Shock Master even. Hopefully, if Osiris, change the name 4kids btw, doesn't arrive for me, someone will be kind enough to trade it to me.

Submitted by theduelingjuggalo on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 13:09

we wont get shock master til may and june, so u just gotta wait bro

Submitted by Shiranui34 on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 04:03

I just became a member so, forgive me for asking but when would this come in?

Submitted by John Bae on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 09:48

Set dates for when SLIFER goes out is still not set in stone, but I don't think you'll have to wait long for it after SHOCK MASTER. Members get four cards a year, and since the first doesn't go out until May-June, the rest will follow on a little bit of an accelerated schedule.

Submitted by Shiranui34 on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 15:11

Alright thank you

Submitted by UltaMatt on Tue, 07/10/2012 - 17:36

I just signed up today (July 10th) and made a trial ( $.90) subscription, and inputed my mailing address under my profile, does this entitle me to the Slifer Promo card?

Submitted by bbirch9663 on Wed, 07/11/2012 - 09:42

i dont think so man. i was gonna try the same thing but i think you have to sign up for a year. if you can go ahead and pay the extra money to make sure you'll get the card. or you can wait and pay some random person online which will most likly be high price. maybe 60+ lol. well anyway hurry and sign up before its to late

Submitted by cdcollier on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 10:39

nobody has got shock master yet. it isnt going out til may/june. slifer is just being announced as the next one after that.

Submitted by dude13117 on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 11:14

Epic card, now all three gods are released!

Submitted by kopeter14 on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 11:17

I just became a member does that mean I'm able to get slifer or do I have to order something???

Submitted by theduelingjuggalo on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 13:00

you'll get slifer if you have an alpha subscription, if you dont well, no slifer for you

Submitted by theduelingjuggalo on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 13:02

Submitted by Zaborg19 on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 13:43

I'm still waiting for the first card? I'd love to have this card as well. I signed up for Alpha partially for the cards... I really hope I receive them soon...

Submitted by John Bae on Sun, 04/22/2012 - 09:52

SHOCK MASTER goes out sometime May-June.

Submitted by cloudude on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 14:04

Do the people that already signed up Shonen Jump Alpha still receive this promo card??

Submitted by Angst on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 14:40

I got a Viz media email on Wednesday, April 11 saying I have three issues left. On my profile it says my subscription ended in April 22. Now the big question. Will I get Slifer the Sky Dragon in June or not?

Submitted by mekeldark666 on Tue, 05/01/2012 - 13:53

unless u renew ur membership

Submitted by omaralvarez on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 15:21

awesome! i want that, but when will well get shock master and slifer

Submitted by FARDecade on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 16:17

I dont want to be that guy but really not gonna call it Osiris? I mean Does Slifer sound Egyptian to you? They are Egyptian Gods, GODS

Submitted by Darkfire006 on Mon, 06/11/2012 - 13:33

Its no longer an Egyptian God in America(never was) Think of it more as "Slifer, the Executive Producer"

Submitted by Bob1200 on Mon, 09/03/2012 - 14:27

Actually It Always Was Egyptian God Cards But Most People Just Refer To Them As The God Cards Now, lol

Submitted by Trunks20 on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 18:04

Slifer and Shock Master so far I remember that the promo card will have a pack of three or more cards, so there is just one more card to be announced. Also I haven't gotten SHock master either and I am one of the people who subscribed and then transfered to SJalpha as soon as it was announced. I have yet to receive it so I hope I get both in May and June.

Submitted by 44lvlc0 on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 18:15

when will we GET it...... D: i really want to show off with it......

Submitted by JohnnySyn on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 20:37

I have been waiting for this card to come out for months....and it has finally been anounced for certain that it is coming out. Once I get mine I shall complete my "god" deck....And, is it just me or does this drawing of Slifer make the other god cards look kinda gay?

Submitted by theduelingjuggalo on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 23:14

nah they all look great, in their own ways. I think they all are epic, each alt art represents each card rather well

Submitted by gokusan24gt on Fri, 04/27/2012 - 19:33

right there with you duelingjuggalo

Submitted by the5starwrestler on Sat, 04/21/2012 - 21:44

Before anyone asks the same questions over and over again, go to this URL:

Submitted by tarix3245 on Sun, 04/22/2012 - 16:27

when will slifer come to us? Coming with shock master or few months later?

Submitted by John Bae on Mon, 04/23/2012 - 09:13

SHOCK MASTER will be sent out sometime around May-June. SLIFER will come after that. Tentative date on when to expect to receive SLIFER is around July-August.

Submitted by jamesovich on Sun, 04/22/2012 - 19:26

I don't like this, I think it should come out in the actual magazine like the rest.

Submitted by John Bae on Mon, 04/23/2012 - 10:55

The print magazine ended with the April 2012 issue.

Submitted by moogleblade on Mon, 04/23/2012 - 14:13

Submitted by zeldafan20 on Mon, 04/23/2012 - 14:57

Submitted by John Bae on Mon, 04/23/2012 - 15:25

ACID GOLEM was the promo in the last print issue. SLIFER is the second promo for SJ ALPHA.

Submitted by kkuriki on Mon, 04/23/2012 - 15:00

What if you were interested only in the cards? can i only pay to get the cards?

Submitted by JUMPsamurai on Mon, 04/23/2012 - 15:33

as a collector...I would love to get multiple copies of Slifer the Sky would I go about getting more? Making another subscription or buying from ebay seems a little pricey compared to paying $4.99 for JUMP and the promo card...

Submitted by John Bae on Tue, 04/24/2012 - 09:57

The print magazine ended, so this card is a promo for ALPHA membership.

Submitted by JUMPsamurai on Wed, 04/25/2012 - 13:44

i'm aware that the print magazine basically people can only get 1 copy from JUMP and then they have to go out of there way to buy another one from another site?

Submitted by bgraves0616 on Mon, 04/23/2012 - 15:56

I too would like multiple copies... i have always bought multiple shonen jumps to stash away, maybe they will distribute them in a manga later or a tin?

Submitted by jhone89 on Tue, 06/26/2012 - 07:22

You could always try buying them from online stores....

Submitted by MattMan11 on Tue, 04/24/2012 - 13:36
