Yugioh Monster Types Part 2

In my last post, I talked about the strongest monster from the first set of Yugioh monster types. Part two will include the monsters from the second set of Yugioh monster types. If there is any disagreement my choice or choices, feel free to comment on what you would have picked differently and why it is better than my choice. (Note: The decisions were made based solely on stats, effect, and how much it would help in its type deck.)

Though the Exodias are the strongest spellcasters, the combo mentioned above utilizes all spellcasters and is just as destructive.

Yugioh Monster Types Part 1

Though I have written about Yugioh monster types in the past, I wanted to write a post about the strongest from each of the monster types. I think that though we all talk about the strongest monsters in Yugioh, overall, I thought writing about the strongest monster per type is important because it can be a pathway for people to build their decks out of. I want to thank nader for giving me the idea. (Note: The decisions were made based on stats, effect, and how much it would help in its type deck). Let me know if you agree or disagree with my decisions.

Yugioh Defensive Tactics

In Yugioh, there are duels that can be easily won in about 3-4 turns. Sometimes it might take 7-11 turns if you’re not drawing the right cards. However, some duels can take an eternity to finish or can be lost, if your opponent summons their ace monster. Though spells and traps help you throughout a duel, it is ultimately the monsters that will deal the most damage. So therefore, many spells, traps, and monster effects are used for protecting an ace monster. So how can you overcome a strong monster if your opponent is using everything in their repertoire to prevent that scenario from happening?

Destroying tough monsters isn’t easy. For a monster to be labeled, ‘strong’, it’s got have powerful stats and a powerful a effect(s). So destroying ‘strong’ monsters isn’t always a task that can be done in a couple of turns. Usually, your opponent will not have what I like to call an Ace deck. This deck’s sole purpose is to easily summon and protect the ‘ace’ monster of the deck. An example is the deck that Yubel uses against Jaden in the final duel of Season Three of Yugioh GX. The main purpose of her deck was to summon the Yubels and completely seal them from destruction. If your opponent does have an ace deck, then they will mainly be using cards that counter spells, traps, and monster summons.

If your opponent does use an ace deck, you must use a counter ace deck. This deck consists of strong level three monsters, such as Jerry Beans Man. This deck revolves around the usage of cards like Gravity Bind and Level Limiter B. Of course, you must also have cards like Mystical Typhoon and Dust Tornado in order to counter spells and traps that would threaten to destroy your level limiter cards (Gravity Bind, Level Limiter B, etc…). This way, all of your opponent’s ace monsters (which would most likely be monsters with six levels or higher) would not be able to attack and would be sealed off. Of course, cards like Yubel would be unaffected by this deck.

If your opponent does not use an ace deck, then more than likely they will not have as many spell/trap counters and you could destroy their ace monsters via spell, trap, monster effects, or by battle (if you can pull out a strong enough monster). Don’t surmise what kind deck your foe has based on their first turn. Every turn, sift your opponent’s card patterns, then conclude what type of deck your opponent has and counter it.

Strongest Yugioh Monster Card

When I wrote this post last year, Yubel the Ultimate Nightmare was in my opinion, the strongest monster in Yugioh. I still think Yubel the Ultimate Nightmare is the strongest monster in Yugioh in terms of effect and efficiency, however, it isn’t the strongest in terms of stats. 0 attack and defense points? Those are the weakest stats a monster can have. So what monster is the best in terms of high attack, high defense, and has an adequate effect? What is the strongest Yugioh monster card? In some recent comments I have gotten, Armityle, the Chaos Phantom and Dragon Master Knight are supposedly the strongest Yugioh monster cards (with the criteria above). However, I don’t agree.

In some recent comments I have gotten, Armityle, the Chaos Phantom and Dragon Master Knight are supposedly the strongest Yugioh  monster cards (with the criteria above). However, I don’t agree.

Though Armityle also has 0 attack and defense points, his effect gives him 10,000 extra attack points. A lot of people would say that’s amazing, but I do not concur. That effect only applies in the controller’s turn. Because that is his only effect, Armityle could be easily beaten in your foe’s turn, no doubt about it. If you want to go as far as to waste the three Yugioh Sacred Beasts in order to summon Armityle, you better have an arsenal of traps to protect him. Plus, just summoning Armityle is difficult. You have to get all three Sacred Beasts on your field, which is nearly impossible given the fact that each of their summoning requirements are so hard to fulfill.

Dragon Master Knight is a much better monster than Armityle, however, he has his down side as well. While DMK has better stats as well as a better effect, it is much harder to summon. Some of you are going, “What? DMK is way easier to play. Just use Dragon’s Mirror or Future Fusion!” I wish summoning Dragon Master Knight was that simple. DMK is a fusion of a fusion. To play him, you first have to get Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, then fuse Black Luster Soldier. One fusion might be easy to pull off, but your opponent will not let you fuse a monster again. So many things can go wrong when you play a double-fusion monster, especially with DMK. If your foe destroys one Blue Eyes White Dragon, summoning DMK is going to be a nightmare. If your foe destroys your Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon, it’s over. If you foe destroys Black Luster Soldier or even your Black Luster Ritual card, you can say goodbye to summoning DMK.

I think that Five Headed Dragon is the strongest Yugioh monster card statistically. It has 5000 attack and defense points, plus it has a decent effect. F.H.D cannot be destroyed in battle by any monster except a light attribute monster. If you have a Dragon deck and own the spell card, Dragon’s Mirror (a pretty easy to find card), F.H.D is very easy to summon. Easy to play, adequate effect, and  phenomenal stats, Five Headed Dragon is one of best beat-down monsters in Yugioh.
