Accel (アクセル, Akuseru) is a keyword which debuted in BS37 and is present on all colors. The text on each card varies, but the common points are that they work like Magic, with either Main or Flash effects, which can be used from the hand, and, after they resolve, the Spirit card is sent face-up to the Removed From Game zone. After being sent to the Removed zone, an Accel spirit may be summoned, allowing a single card to have two different uses. The default text on Accel cards is the following:
- [Step Timing] Accel: Cost X (Reductions) (This effect can be used from your hand). [Effect]. After this effect resolves, put this card face-up on your Removed From Game zone.
