▍About “Pot of Greed” (強欲な壺)
The pot is inspired by the illustration of the spell card “Pot of Greed” from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters (遊☆戯☆王デュエルモンスターズ) TV anime series. “Pot of Greed” allows you to draw two cards from your deck. Although the card is banned in the trading card game as it is too powerful, it is still an iconic card thanks to the memes on the internet.
