SPELL COUNTERS Some cards in Dark Revelation gain Spell Counters each time a Spell Card is activated. A Spell Counter is a numerical marker on a card, and normally can be represented by coins, glass beads, or any such small item. It is good to play many of the cards that require Spell Counters if you are going to play any at all. This is because each card on the field will receive its own Spell Counter for each single Spell Card activated. - click here for another Dueling Tip.
