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!

Card of the Week

Card of the week 7/19/10:

After days of wait, I finally located a local game store that hosted unoffical Yugioh duels on the weekends. Obviously, after having created my new Infernity Dark World deck, I had to go in order to test it out. My results were good, but not as good as I had imagined. I won nine duels, but lost two. My first loss had nothing to do with my foe’s deck; I just had a terrible hand. However, the second deck I lost to was actually a pretty nice one. It was similar to the high-leveled beatdown deck that Chris Harbour was describing in his comments. That Yugioh deck consisted of cards that made it easy to pull out strong monsters in order to completely tramp over defenses. It was primarily a dark attribute deck. Some of the cards used was Dark Necrofear, DAD, and Raviel the Lord of Phantasm. However, the card that completely destroyed me was Dark Creator.

Dark Creator is the evil spin-off of the Creator and it can special summon one Dark monster if you remove one from your graveyard. Dark Creator was basically the fascilator of 99% of that duelists combos. Though I could fend off some of the beatdown monsters, his tough offense made it difficult for me to create a counter-strategy. His most popular combinations were special summoning Dark Nephythys and using its effect to destroy my spells and traps. Dark Creator also allowed him to special summon Raviel, which then won him the duel. Though I still didn’t have a great hand in this duel, his Dark Creator still did most of the damage to me. His Dark Revival deck, and especially the Dark Creator, earned my respect.
