Card of the Week

Well, today will be the last and final Card of the Week post, for come August, I will write a weekly Monster Card Comparison. That post will compare two different monsters and judge which monster is better based on stats, effects, usefulness, artwork, etc… Anyways, the last card of the week is card that I found in my locker during high school orientation this week. It was pretty funny that someone would put something in my locker before school even began, but what was funnier was that it was such an awesome card!

Card of the Week 7/30/10: Savage Colosseum

Savage Colosseum is one of those cards that you have to be extremely careful when using, but if used right, can be dangerous for your opponent. Magical Colosseum is a field spell that requires every monster (who is able) on the turn player’s side of the field, to attack. If a monster doesn’t attack (by remaining in defense position, Block Attack, etc…) This card is a great to destroy tuners and other weak/crucial monsters. On top of that, the controller gets 300 life points if a monster attacked. Savage Colosseum is a really big help when you’re losing for it has the capability to turn the tides. The only weakness Savage Colosseum has is that it is pretty useless when dueling a high level, beatdown deck…

Well that wraps up the final card of the week for July and the last card of the week post for this blog. However, you can still vote for who you think should win the card of the month award: Savage Colosseum, Dark Creator, or Mist Wurm!

  1. I’m not really following how it helps if you’re losing… when you’re losing, chances are you don’t have a monster that can beat the opponent’s. so what good is making your monsters attack? even if you gain 300 life points, you’re probably gonna lose more from battle damage.

  2. weird, but a lot of people are saying that fableds are broken. well they are extremely fast, perhaps faster than zombies and bws. well im not a fabled genius but they seem good. any thoughts?

  3. Well, I have experience with two of the cards of the week. The Dark Creator really comes in handy and could potentially turn the game around, especially if you have a Dark Deck that dumps a lot like mine. But Mist Wurm will be very handy because you can return annoying cards to the hand. In my opinion Dark Creator is better because you don’t need to synchro for it, it has a good ammount of attack, and it allows you to get other monsters. But you also have to realise that Mist Worm can also turn the game around and if its a duel where you and your opponent have been blocking each other for a lot of turns and you each have around 1500 life points, then Mist Wurm can end really fast. So it is a hard one. Savage colosseum in my opinion does more damage than Dark Creator and Mist Wurm, but its also riskier.

  4. @Nader Indeed Fabled cards are super fast, and the great thing about it is that you can use Fiend Support and Light support along with cards like Lightsworns and Dark Worlds, so it has many possibilities, and they discard to special summon so you can perform a lot of comboes in one turn.

  5. the only card I have experience with is mist wurm and I’ve found it to be very handy, especially when you combine it with de-synchro. it’s not very hard to summon either since it has no specific synchro material. I’ve yet to make a good deck using the dark creator so I’m not really sure of him. but he only seems to be of use in a DARK deck while mist wurm can be splashed into any deck that uses tuners (and almost everybody has tuners in their decks by now) as for savage colosseum, I don’t think it’s good at all unless you also have something like spirit barrier. my vote’s for mist wurm.

  6. I have only neutral comments for this card of the week.

    Fabled monsters will be tier 2.

  7. Dragunities i heard are topping lots of tournaments in japan. also, dragunities swarm like crazy. they make hard synchros easy to summon. i like dragon canyon especially. most of them aren’t even released in the usa. i’ll be interested when they all come out. i love those guys. Konami knows how to make great decks.

  8. from what i can predict, fableds and dragunities might be tier 1. they have crazy swarming and look cool. under fableds are called the fabled. the only difference is that they are beast type and the (the). rescue cat would be great with them. also the fabled unicore kicks ass. it can even negate and destroy counter traps. unicore’s effect is a continous effect which is better than an activation effect. for the effect of unicore to happen though you and your opponent must have an equal amount of cards in the hand. but still unicore is cheap easy to summon and kicks ass.

  9. What I am excited about is the many mirror forces that are going to come out with the new structure decks! everyone is going to have one now and it is going to be a bigger challenge for swarm decks. Dragunities seem like a good idea since winged beast and dragons have really neat support cards like Icarus attack, Stamping Destruction(which is better than mst and its not limited) and you can use Red Eyes Darkness Dragon and Tyrant Dragon. Wow that deck is going to be very fast and very dangerous, and like you said Nader, synchro summoning is going to be really easy, so an urgent tuning and a de synchro could be thrown to the deck.

  10. @morfowt
    Well that’s partly true. Now a days, duelists put their foes in tough situations by card effects rather than high level beatdown monsters. So you could still have decent monsters in your reserve to use.

  11. all of these decks are going to be awesome when they come out. i love the fabled synchros (leviathan, ragin, valkyrus, unicore). i love the ice barrier synchros (you know them). trishula might get limited though because of abuse and overall effect in maybe the next one or two ban/restricted lists. why do ice barriers get all of the good synchros?

  12. this is a pretty late comment from the yugioh game, but there are 2 monsters effect wise that are similar to CED. sky scourge norleras and ocean dragon lord neo daedalus. both of which are slightly harder to summon than CED. neo daedalus is my second favorite after CED (duh) because it isn’t sent to the grave unlike ssn and ced. so you get to otk with him possibly 2 to 3 times since your opponent has no hand. ssn is my least favorite since he is the hardest to summon. he still does have an amazing effect in fact after you send all cards on the field and hand to the grave you get to draw a card. a +1 for you. i still think though that ssn and ocdnd are imbalanced by effect.

  13. well I don’t know any tough situations caused by card effects that can be helped by having your opponent’s monsters attack.

    yeah, nowadays players are in tough situation by card effects, but the monsters with those card effects also have high atk as well (JD, DAD, Brionac, Stardust). otherwise it wouldn’t be a tough situation because you could just attack them.

  14. I’m currently watching GX and the cards the characters are using looks very different. The borders are thinner and the levels and type are located below the card. I guess, it’s just in the anime.

  15. one of my favorites, the others being battle fader, brionac, the fabled unicore, trishula, CED, OCDND, aslla piscu and uru. yeah i have alot of favorites.

  16. my least favorites: majestics, gate guardian, rainbow neos, theinen, armityle, cusillu, dmk, beud, besd, bewd, rebd. basically anything that is pointless to summon.

  17. my favorites: battle fader, beast king barbaros, sangan, scrubbed raid, junk destroyer, tuningware, colossal fighter, de-synchro, and imperial custom.

  18. my least favorites: pyramid turtle (way too many good cards searchable with this), goyo guardian, red-eyes zombie dragon, paladin of the cursed dragon (anything that can take my monsters permanently and use them against me), brionac (not bad enough you move them to my hand but do you have to be able to use it every turn?)

  19. im surprised you put goyo and brionac on your least favorite list. rezd and potcd are understandable though.

    everyone loves battle fader.

  20. goyo and brionac are annoying if you have to face them. and I’ve never had to use them except maybe goyo as a beastick. for field removal I’d rather use mist wurm, junk destroyer, or even black rose dragon. any of those are possible if I’m using junk synchron and 3 tuningware to summon them (which I usually do).

  21. I’m guessing you mean ultimate ancient gear golem. Yeah he’s a pretty good card. use with power bond and limiter removal, and you have one seriously powerful monster. not to mention it’s other effects. ultimate ancient gear golem would be one of my favorites as well except ancient gears need some more support to keep up with the current meta. Like that ancient gear statue. They really should make that a real card. it wouldn’t make ancient gears anywhere near top tier, but it’d be helpful nonetheless.

  22. the fabled unicore is so exquisitely fantastic! make sure though that you and your foe have the same number of cards in the hand. what i especially like about unicore is that it can negate and destroy counter traps. its also a continuous effect.

    i love levia dragon daedalus. with a legendary ocean you can just tribute one monster for her. its so much better than demise.

    i can’t believe i forgot about this, but i think that gift of greed can be terrible. it lets your opponent draw 2 cards.

  23. well it has a slight use if you’re using a mill deck. it can also provide as a temporary stop to infernity’s effects. but yeah in most cases, gift of greed has no real use.

    that’s great except how do you plan on making sure you and your opponent have the same number of cards?

  24. its better to use it’s effect late game, since more likely you and your opponent will have the same or near the same amount of cards in the hand. isn’t there a spell or trap that lets you look at your opponents hand or something meaning that?

  25. So who is excited for pot of duality? I know I am. I preordered 3 of them รฎยโ€ 

  26. do you know which card i think is funny, self destruct button. if you have lower life points then your foe and the difference is 7000 or more both players life points become 0. that would really help with cards like gift card, upstart goblin, wall of revealing light etc to use its effect. but really why the hell did konami make this?

  27. @ chris: I am. any kind of pot card is always something to look forward to. I’m likely gonna have to wait longer than you though since I can’t really buy cards. I have to wait for the site I play on to add it to their database.

    because maybe some players would like to use it? I know I would… in fact why not? a simultaneous destruction deck. *goes off to make one*

    @javier: in that case I’d rather use something like book of eclipse or hiro’s shadow scout.

  28. lol, okay im going to make one right now and piss everyone off! i LOVE that card, a suicide card. i wonder how well a self destruct button deck would do in major tournaments. nevertheless i love what konami makes. this card is just so good and funny.

  29. I don’t think it’d do too well since the only way to win with a deck using self-destruct button is if your opponent decks out…

  30. @Nader Rainbow Dark Dragon is my favorite card not only because of its looks but because I am a beatdown kind of guy, and that card is the ultimate beater, and I also went through A LOT!! to get it.

  31. I’m more a beating-around-the-bush kind of guy. I prefer playing decks that win (or in the case of my self-destruction button deck, draw) through card effects and win conditions.

  32. @Chris did you mean pot of duality?

    and yeah i like auto win cards. (destiny board especially, at the same time however it can be tricky)

  33. im normally a half stall half beatdown kinda guy. comparable to like having consecrated light out to stall and then use herald of perfection. sorta like that.

  34. your foe wouldn’t be a happy camper, since it turned out to be a draw. while some people think the deck wouldn’t top i think it might have some potential to be useful. launching a surprise on your opponent.

  35. Dude, Self-Destruct button deck might be annoying, but I have dueled ANNOYING Decks before that makes this deck seem like a beatdown deck lols. My friends Frog OTK deck O.O I hate it, it is so annoying, Flip Flop Frog, UniFrog!! and then when he gets 20 Frogs in his grave, he starts doing crazy loops with mass driver and ronin toadin for an otk, but he has 3 different possible Otks with his deck, and he creates barriers of death, the only way to kill him is with a piercing monster(although that doesn’t help either) Then there is my other friends’ Quillbolt Loop deck…… I hate that hedgehog! he has a Bad Reaction Simochi deck which burns me to death with Eyes of Truth, and Gift cards!!! Not only that but his Burn deck is also extra annoying!! he can stall like hell and he went on a tournament with it and made 3rd place!!! and he beat decks like Blackwings and stuff. And then there is my other friends Happy Heralds deck!!! He uses fairy rituals and a ton of low level fairies and he owns with lockdowns since you can’t activate anything cause he negates and destroys a Spell card, Trap card or Monster!!! its super hard to beat, I only beat it once with my Amazoness lockdown deck since it doesn’t need Monster effects, Spells or Traps. In another note, who is going to the sneek preview?? I really want to go because I have at least 3 decks that can benefit from that pack. Ojama=Beast so I can use the supports. Amazoness=New support cards!. Naturias=Bamboo Shoot, need I say more?

  36. i hate frog otk, its just rediculous.

    why not make a post on predictions for the next banlist. that would be fun. I say ban rescue cat. limit mirage, launcher (idk about this), archfiend, barrier, darksoul. semi limit necromancer, beetle, faultroll. does this sound good?

  37. speaking of loops, I recently made a deck that uses magical exemplar, disenchanter and a continuous spell to create an infinite amount of spell counters. you play magical exemplar while it has at least 4 spell counters on it, play a spell that remains face-up after activation, like swords of revealing light, and remove 5 spell counters from exemplar to special summon disenchanter from your hand or graveyard. disenchanter removes the last spell counter from exemplar to return swords of revealing light to your hand. play swords again, remove counter, return to hand, play again. if you also have royal magical library in your hand or grave, you could remove 4 counters from exemplar to special summon it. then every 3 times you play swords, you also get to draw a card, so you could draw the whole deck if you wanted. if you have a level 2 spellcaster-type tuner, you could synch with disenchanter for arcanite magician and destroy every card your opponent has on the field. or synch with royal magical library for temepest magician, remove 16 spell counters on your side of the field and deal 8000 burn damage. there’s a chance you won’t get magical exemplar on your first turn, so most cards in this deck change the cards in your hand (reload, magical mallet, hand destruction, card destruction, dark world dealings).

  38. I have seen those before, How about throw in 3 magic exemplars and a few tuners in a bubbleman burn deck :3

    For the banlist part, I think they wont ban all of the infernities like you are saying but a few will get limited. Sadly, for me, I have a Machina deck, and Machina Fortress or Gearframe is going to get a Direct Attack (lols) I predict semi-limit for one of them, I predict Bamboo Shoot Semi-limited, and Solemn Judgement back to Semi-LImited. Ally of Justice Catastor should get Semi-Limited.

  39. Infernities are going to get slaughtered when the banlist comes. they might limit like 5 cards for the infernities. x sabers wont really get a big hit like infernities.

  40. coincidentally, I have a bubbleman burn deck too, but magical exemplar doesn’t really work with bubbleman burn. bubbleman’s effect to draw won’t activate if magical exemplar is on the field.

  41. I actually don’t agree that infernitites would get hit. Cards tend to get hit hard if they are absolutely abused in big tournaments. But consider the fact that under 10 infernity players made it to nationals…..they don’t have much chance to make a huge impact. For example, it wasn’t that long ago that magical explosion topped whatever big tourney that it was in…….then guess what? It got limited. Wierd thing though, I hvent heard much that will affect xsabers. I don’t want them to be affected but it don’t sound like it.

    I made a fun deck yesterday. I made perfect circle utilizing 3 caius, 3 raiza, 3 back to square one, 3 Phoenix wing wind blast, and 3 legendary jujitsu masters. This deck is alot of fun. It absolutely abuses treeborn frog, and dust tornado.

  42. sounds a little bit like my monarch deck. caius, raiza and phoenix wing wind blast are good staples to a lot of decks. especially the combo with raiza and phoenix, it gets your opponent annoyed.

  43. Did you proxy those cards or did you have them? Me and my friends sometimes Proxy fun decks that are fun to play but are not really worth the time to get the actual card.

  44. but aren’t infernities topping so many tournaments along with x sabers? i mean i think that primarily archfiend and launcher might get hit especially because they mostly keep the deck going. substitoad and ronintoadin might get hit too because of the annoying otk/ftk. rescue cat (most likely gonna get banned). i have a feeling that caius might get semi limited because its such a big staple. there is so much controversy about this.

  45. Just the fact that it is a staple doesn’t mean it is going to get limited, What about Enemy Controller? and Smashing Ground? and Sakuretsu Armor.

  46. I’m not so sure about enemy controller or sakuretsu armor being staples. I haven’t seen anyone actually use either of them. smashing ground is definitely a staple though. starlight road couple probably count as a staple too.

  47. semi limited not limited. i just think that 3 caius isn’t very healthy. now that i think of it raiza should become semi limited again. again just my opinion.

    i wonder when the fabled unicore comes here, how many people are going to abuse that thing. i just found out that drastic drop off and trap dustshoot will help having both players an equal amount of cards in the hands. and then getting crazy with unicore. its a continuous effect which makes it more broken. a counter trap killer and this thing is ridiculously easy to summon. one of the most lulzy cards ever.

  48. remember when injection fairy lily got banned one time? that made me puke for like six months. the old yugioh was so messed up. heck banning injection fairy lily is like banning perfectly ultimate great moth. and that card was crap.

  49. oh i noticed that unicore’s effect also applies to the hand, graveyard, and extra deck. however the cards wont be destroyed in the graveyard just negated. it’ll stop things like gorz, sangan, effect veiler etc. i might like this card even more than vennominaga. im not going to overly talk about it. (i just did).

    slate warrior and lily are nonexistent from ever being played.

  50. Lol I have run a slate warrior in my 1900 anti-tribute deck. (which is useless against the newer cards)
    I just made an infernity deck to see how broken it really is…… and I think the whole deck should get banned haha

  51. i wonder, do anyone of you guys run a dragon queen of tragic endings? im currently in the making of a dragon deck and i think that she would do great in that deck. im kinda sick of the meta decks now to be different. i actually only own 6 dragons. dark armed dragon, red eyes black dragon, red eyes darkness dragon, red eyes darkness metal dragon, van’dalgyon the dark dragon lord and her. i also have some continuous spells. she is fearsome.

  52. I personally dragon queen of tragic endings would go better in a crystal beast deck. since crystal beasts become continuous spells when they’re destroyed.

  53. I have Rainbow Dark Dragon, Red Eyes Black Dragon, Red Eyes Black Skull Dragon, 2 Blue Eyes White Dragons, Ancient Fairy Dragon, and thats pretty much it for dragons. I also agree with you that Meta decks are boring, I have a very good Machina Deck and it beats almost everyone, but I kinda get tired of it and I almost never play it, so I make decks like Ojama decks and Amazoness decks. I also started my Naturia deck recently, and seeing how expensive the cards are, I am probably going to take a while to get it complete.

  54. i use van’dalgyon the dark dragon lord most often because he is the easiest to summon and his effects are so good! his effects are very unique.

  55. i like those decks too. mainly cyber valley. just be careful about cards like system down, that will be fatal. did anyone use system down on you when you had your machina deck?

  56. i think that for everyone here the most annoying type of deck is a DD deck. they can be very aggressive and kill all of the meta decks. i wonder if anyone here has ever played against one. i have. i used everything from x sabers, zombies, vennominaga deck, infernities, blackwings etc and i always got pwned. sad.

  57. or macro monarchs . i mean i only ran regular monarchs back then. but i never faced a DD deck with my plain monarch deck. i think it can beat it. do to the many annoying effects monarchs have.

  58. so i made my dragon queen of tragic endings dragon deck. and it was very successful. while she fits somewhat better in crystal beasts, she’s not that bad in dragon decks. she has grown on me lately O_O. i love her. my life would be complete if there was a vennominaga vs yubel the ultimate nightmare vs dragon queen of tragic endings compare and contrast. oh wait thats 3 monsters. all 3 queens are beautiful yet creepy.

  59. Infernities are doing jack squat right now. Worlds is coming up and under a handful of infernities made it. Over 90% of worlds players are xsabers. Also, people kinda know that infernities are quickly going out of style. Look up how much you can get an infernity barrier for nowadays. It’s like 40 bucks max. Used to be like 80 bucks. It’s cause no one wants to play infernities anymore

  60. does that mean that infernities will turn out to be like blackwings and lightsworns? they get popular and then they suddenly flop while a new deck arises? x sabers are the most successful deck as of now which i agree. a simple crevice into the different dimension would wreck infernities (and somewhat x sabers due to faultroll and gottom’s emergency call). x sabers will remain a strong deck. the only weakness decks potentially are dark world, fabled and DD/Macro Monarch.
