The highly anticipated 10 Magic Stone Seasonal Super Godfest (SSG) has been announced for this coming Monday (Jan. 27) and is one of the more exciting events due to the chance in acquiring Godfest Exclusives along with rare Seasonal cards.
Generally speaking, Super Godfests cost 10 Magic Stones along with approximately 33% chance for any Godfest Exclusive (6 or 7-star) and has become the norm/baseline for what we look for in a Godfest. As such, the collateral benefits are what will separate a regular event from a stellar one.
With this in mind, the Seasonal Super Godfest follows this rolling rate archetype but removes some Godfest Exclusives and replaces them with various Seasonal cards. In the case of the upcoming event, the Wedding and Beach top rarity cards will also be available. This is important for players who are interested in these cards because their respective Egg Machines are flooded with poor low value cards.
Of course, most Pantheon cards are still lackluster, but there is a significantly higher chance of rolling something of value in a Seasonal Super Godfest compared to a Seasonal Egg Machine.
This article will take a closer look at the upcoming Seasonal Super Godfest to provide players with a better understanding of how much value this event may or may not hold along with Magic Stone spending recommendations moving forward.

History of Super Godfests
A long time ago on a smart phone far far away, Godfests used to only cost 5 Magic Stones along with virtually no Collabs or Seasonal cards along with the vast majority of the strong cards being available in the same Egg Machine.
Eventually, GungHo released the first Super Godfest which doubled the Magic Stone cost to 10 whilst also providing much stronger rolling rates and various collateral benefits (max level, +297, etc.). Needless to say, it was a success due to the much higher chance of acquiring a Godfest Exclusive who were slowly widening the gap between Pantheon cards from a power/usability point of view, especially when 7* GFE were introduced.
At the same time, Seasonal and Collab cards have become stronger and it is my belief that this occurred because it is more profitable to have players roll across numerous Egg Machines when chasing for strong cards as there is no overlap compared to the days when the original Player’s Choice Godfests featured essentially every meta/top tier card in a single event.
Fast forward to today where essentially all of the good cards are locked behind top rarity Collab/Seasonal events or 7* Godfest Exclusives. This has created a situation where players have to either roll across numerous events to build powerful teams or utilize the Monster Exchange System after acquiring enough Trade Fodder.
Taking all of this into consideration, the main appeal for a Seasonal Super Godfest is that players are able to acquire high rarity/valuable cards from several different events in a single Egg Machine.
Upcoming Seasonal Super Godfest
The upcoming Seasonal Super Godfest features top rarity cards from the Beach and Wedding events alongside various 6/7* Godfest Exclusives.
In the past, it was a matter of waiting for key cards to overlap and be featured in the same event. While this is much harder nowadays, Seasonal Super Godfests may be the best time to do so assuming you are interested in the Beach and Wedding cards.
In the previous Seasonal Super Godfest, I was was able to roll essentially all the top rarity Beach and a modest number of Halloween cards and is the only reason why I have Halloween Cotton , Beach Fujin , and Beach Eschamali . Furthermore, there have been other similar events in the past and it is where I tend to acquire the majority of my high rarity Seasonal cards.
As such, this event which now features the 9* Seasonal cards has the potential to be quite Fantastic as those are normally chase cards that are locked behind bad events.
Thus, players can potentially save on Trade Fodder and directly roll the target card while having a total of around 33% for any GFE/Seasonal card. For myself, this is the main appeal for the event and I would spend some stones here if the Beach or Wedding cards are appealing. Furthermore, it is potentially a way to stock up on Trade Fodder as Seasonal cards are often used as possible options for various Collabs.
Other places to spend Magic Stones
Due to the fact that we tend to be around 1.5-2 months behind the JP server, we are able to plan our Magic Stone usage better but at the same time, future events should in always be stronger due to how Powercreep impacts both dungeons and Egg Machines.
The difference between two back to back months may be small but over time it can add up. As such, the best way to stay abreast with Powercreep is to hoard Magic Stones and roll during a strong event. This helps players “catch up” and in the case of the Seasonal Super Godfest, they have a similar chase for any kind of Trade Fodder (around 33%) but can also directly roll the chase cards they may have wanted to trade for.
How important this will be depends on your own individual Monster Box and goals.
In terms of notable future events, we will be having Yu Gi Oh Collab in North America sometime in the near future as it was announced on their official Stream but no confirmed date. On the other hand, there will be new 7* Godfest Exclusives being released in a future Super Godfest who amusingly features a Transforming leader who is a wonderful pairing for the top rarity Yu Gi Oh leader. Finally, Sword Art Online has returned for a second time in JP and since we did have this event in NA, there is a possibility it will return.
Do I plan to roll?
I may do a few rolls in the Seasonal Super Godfest as I am missing all of the Wedding cards along with some of the Beach ones along with all of the featured 7* GFE except Madoo. With that being said, even if I did roll a duplicate GFE, they can simply be put towards Trade Fodder and if I were to roll a Seasonal cards I do not own, I would view it as a big win due to the fact that they are nice to have but I would not Monster Exchange for them.
Seasonal Super Godfests tend to be stronger events compared to regular Super Godfests because it gives players the opportunity to directly roll a chase card while having the security of 1/3 rolls being a valuable card.
This is a far cry from Seasonal events where they are incredibly top heavy and while many of the higher rarity cards are nice to have, they would often not be worth trading for.
As such, I tend to view Seasonal Super Godfests as a place to acquire Trade Fodder (like regular Super Godfests) but having a reasonable chance to acquire top rarity Seasonal cards.
Let me know what you think about this event in the comments below along with whether or not you plan on rolling.
