Two more DRLG reveals: Magic Hand & Prominence Hand

Two more handy spoilers from Dragons of Legend! Here they are:

Magic Hand
Dark / 4 / Spellcaster / 800 / 1600
When your opponent adds a card(s) from their Deck to their hand, except by drawing them (except during the Damage Step): You can send that card(s) to the Graveyard, and if you do, inflict 800 damage to your opponent. This effect can only be used once while this card is face-up on the field.

Prominence Hand
Fire / 4 / Pyro / 600 / 2000
If you control a "Magic Hand", "Fire Hand", or "Ice Hand", you can Special Summon this card (from your hand).


So basically, Magic Hand is another counter to the mass searching trend, and Prominence Hand supports the Hand theme by giving you easier Rank 4 plays. These two aren't nearly as devastating as Fire Hand and Ice Hand from yesterday, but they're still welcome reveals for anyone who wants to build a full-on Hand deck. They're also, yet again, noticeably stronger than their original anime forms.

04/12/14 Edit: So as I'm sure most of you know by now, there will be a single reprint in addition to the 50 brand-new cards in Dragons of Legend. I've been thinking about this for a little while now, and I think there's a decent chance that the emphasis on Hand cards means we'll be seeing the first reprint of Number 106: Giant Hand in this set.

If so, that would only make this pack even more of a money-grabber than we expect it to be currently. Giant Hand isn't just a YCS Prize Card, it's also an incredibly useful Rank 4 monster. Some would even consider it to be a staple if there weren't so few copies on the market right now. Anyways, time will tell what the reprint will be. If it does turn out to be 106, I definitely wouldn't be disappointed.
