Unparalleled Ingenuity, Loura

Highlander (ハイランダー Hairandā) is an unofficial term which refers to an ability currently exclusive to the Bermuda Triangle clan that defines a deck contruction, where there can only be one specific type of cards with the same name, and thus no multiple copies at all. This definition is also officially referred to as "Construction of one same card name" (同名カード1枚構築 Dōmei Kādo Ichi-mai Kōchiku).

List of Highlander-defining Cards

These cards support the "there can only be one" playstyle by revealing cards from the top of your deck, and if all of the revealed normal units or cards have different card names, perform beneficial effects making up for only having one card with that specific card name in your deck.

Although these cards do not share the revealing cards from the top of your deck abilities, they still support the Highlander playstyle through wanting cards with different card names to gain benefits from.

If three or more units were returned, choose up to two cards from your hand, call them to separate (RC) in different rows, and this unit gets [Critical]+1 until end of that battle.

Silver Singer, Cutire When placed on (VC) or (RC) You may declare a card name other than this card's. If you do, reveal cards from the top of your deck until you reveal the declared card or a normal unit with the same card name as a card revealed by this effect, put the declared normal unit from among them into your hand, and shuffle your deck.

Trivia

  • The name Highlander is taken from the movie of the same name, whose tagline was of course "There can be only one".
  • Due to how cards such as Loura have been advertised, Highlander is also rarely known as a "Legendary Idol deck".
