Draw Step
ドローステップ (Dorō Suteppu)
Japanese Wiki: 3590

Draw Step is the second step of the turn.


The active player adds a card from the top of his deck to their hand, known as a draw. This step is forced.

This step is ignored for the first turn of the player who goes first, with the game advancing directly to the charge step.

If you draw the last card of your deck, you instantly lose the game. This is known as Deck-out.

Depending on the effect of Vacuum Crawler, Aqua Attack (BAGOOON Panzer) or Evidegoras, Dragon Sonic Aircraft Carrier can allow you to draw additional cards before this step.

While it is a simple step where only one simple effect is done, Blue Poseidon, Sea God also triggers during this step.
