Shooting Quasar Dragon vs. Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem

Shooting Quasar Dragon and Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem are two of the strongest monsters in Yugioh and in this post, we will compare them and see which one is superior.

I received a comment asking me to compare the titular monster characters and judge which card is superior. This is an interesting comparison, considering that Shooting Quasar Dragon is one of the strongest synchro monsters in Yugioh, while Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem is one of the strongest fusion monsters.

The Most Over-Powered Yugioh Card

The Yugioh anime has introduced us to some awesome cards, including cards that are highly over-powered. What are some of the most over-powered cards in Yugioh?

Recently, Victor, one of Yugioh Blog’s most frequent visitors, and I had a discussion regarding the most over-powered (OP) anime card. We both agreed that the Golden Castle of Stromberg was the most OP Yugioh card. However, under further review, I found that the effect of GCS was modified by Sigried (throwback to the original series!), who was the antagonist of the Grand Championship arc. Thus, it’s not really fair to include it in the discussion for the most OP card. I came with a list of three OP Yugioh cards that could be considered for this ‘title’.  Continue reading “The Most Over-Powered Yugioh Card”

Top 10 Tuner Monsters in Yugioh Part 2

Hey readers, this is the part 2 of the top 10 tuner monsters in Yugioh. If you have not already, read Top 10 Tuner Monsters in Yugioh Part 1.

yugioh-delta-flyer5. Delta Flyer

Delta Flyer is a great tuner because it not only has pretty high attack points for a level three tuner with 1500. However, it also has a short but substantial effect: Delta Flyer can increase the level of one monster on the field by one. With that capability, you can tune Delta Flyer with mere four leveled monsters to bring out powerful eight leveled synchro monsters such as Stardust Dragon. This effect allows you to virtually summon any synchro monster between the level of five and eight with ease!

yu-gi-oh-krebons4. Krebons

Krebons is basically like Dark Resonator in terms of effect: by paying 800 life points it can negate an attack. Plus it has pretty high attack points for a level two monster with 1200. The main reason Krebons is higher on the list than tuners such as Delta Flyer and Plaguespreader Zombie is because it is one of the few Psychic tuner monsters in the TCG. Psychic synchro monsters are crazy strong and because Krebons is one of four Psychic tuners (it is the strongest), it had to be high on the list. Plus, it was an important piece of many Tele-Dark Armed Dragon decks.

yu-gi-oh-blackwing-gale-the-whirlwind23. Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind

Perhaps one of the best Blackwing tuners in the game, Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind just had to be on this list. It can special summon itself when there are one or more Blackwing monsters on the owner’s field. This allows for instantaneous synchro summoning capabilities, as Blackwing monsters are so good at swarming monsters onto the field. Gale also has 1300 attack points and once per turn, it can halve the attack and defense points of one monster on the field! That effect allows it to destroy any monster with 2600 or lower attack points.

yu-gi-oh-chaos-end-master2. Chaos End Master

Not only is this level three tuner’s artwork indescribably awesome, Chaos End Master’s (1500 attack points, 1000 defense points) effect is great as well. Similar to Black Salvo, Chaos End Master allows you to special a level five monster with 1600 or less attack points to your field when Chaos End Master destroys a monster by battle. You can then synchro summon a level eight sycnrh monster! Unlike Black Salvo, Chaos End Master’s requirement for its effect is a bit more difficult to address, however, you can special summon any sort of monster through Chaos End Master (whereas Black Salvo requires to play a level four, dark machine monster). A great tuner indeed.

yu-gi-oh-effect-veiler1. Effect Veiler

This might come as a surprise for many, as Effect Veiler is not a great tuner in terms of synchro summoning capabilities. It is a level one tuner, so synchro summoning it with a level four monster only gets you a level five synchro monster. However, Magical Android is the only level five monster that does not require a specific tuner. So really, Effect Veiler is only useful when tuned with a level five or higher monster, which may be tricky to bring out if playing a skilled player. However, Effect Veiler can do what very, very few cards in the game do: negating monster effects. There are several cards that negate traps and spell card effects, but not monster effects. Just like Kuriboh, you discard Effect Veiler to activate its effect.

Yugioh Top 10 Contest

Yugioh Cards Blog has many top 10 posts; I find top 10 posts are really cool because it not only helps people on that subject but describes the person writing it as well. That’s why, to start off 2011, I decided to have a Top 10 contest! It’s actually a pretty simple contest; all you have to do is choose a subject and make a top 10 list out of it. Your subject can be anything: normal monsters, OTK decks, counter traps, Frog archetype monsters, etc… Your list will be judged on these criteria:

Actuality (if Thousand-Eyes Idol is number in a Top 10 Monsters list, then something is wrong…)
Explanation (you’re explanation should be fluid and it should make me understand why you think this card deserves to be on the list)
Grammar (self-explanatory)
Creativeness (don’t just make a Top 10 Spells list, or a Top 10 Monsters list, be creative with your subject! How about a Top 10 Cards in Jaden’s Deck or something like that? Be creative!)
I can’t wait to see what kind of lists people come up with! The winner will be announced on Jan.30, good luck!

Top 10 Synchros in Yugioh Part 1

I’ve done a bunch of top Yugioh monster lists, but not a top Yugioh synchro monster list, which is funny because they are possibly the most popular group of cards to ever be released in the whole Yugioh franchise!

I’ve done a bunch of top Yugioh monster lists, but not a top Yugioh synchro monster list, which is funny because they are possibly the most popular group of cards to ever be released in the whole Yugioh franchise! So, here is my top 10 list on the strongest synchro monsters (this list takes into consideration stats, effect, and how easy it is to play).

10. Zeman the Ape King

Despite its funny name, Zeman the Ape King is actually a good synchro to have in any extra deck. Why? Because no matter how face down spell/trap defenses your opponent has setup, Zeman the Ape King can penetrate through them all. Zeman has strong stats with 2500 attack and 1800 defense. It also has two wicked abilities, the first one being that when it attacks, your opponent cannot activate any spell or trap card after the damage step. This effect not only allows you to attack (with Zeman) with no risk, but it also negates a lot of cards. Suppose you’re opponent has a Magic Cylinder or a Sakuretsu Armor in store for you, well, if they are attacked by Zeman those cards would be useless since they can only be activated during the attack, not after. Zeman’s second effect is great too: by discarding or tributing one monster, Zeman can negate an attack. That effect could be huge in late-game situations!

9. Stardust Dragon

Stardust Dragon was a must on this list. This cool monster is a staple in a lot of extra decks because it has a perfect balance of defense and offense. Stardust Dragon has a good 2500 attack points and 2000 defense points. However, it’s Stardust Dragon’s effect that earns it a spot on the top ten list. Synchro summoning puts you in a field advantage in the sense that you have to give up at least two monsters for one. And who knows, perhaps your synchro monster will get with a Trap Hole or something of that sort. With Stardust Dragon, you don’t need to worry about it being destroyed by an effect because at its own cost, it negates and destroys any card that destroys another card through its effect. Plus, if Stardust Dragon is destroyed through its own effect, it comes back at the turn’s end phase! The only negative aspect about Stardust Dragon is that its effect is only limited to cards that destroy.

8. Turbo Warrior

One can make the argument that Turbo Warrior is quite possibly Yusei’s best synchro monster. Turbo Warrior has good stats with 2500 attack points and 1500 defense points, but it is its effect that makes it tough to beat. Whenever Turbo Warrior battles with a level six or greater synchro monster, the synchro monster’s attack points are halved, which means VERY few synchro monsters can defeat this warrior! Turbo Warrior cannot be targeted by the effects level six or lower monsters as well! It is a great defensive card to have and can be tough to bring down especially because duelists these days use a lot of powerful (and high leveled) synchro monsters.,

7. Dark Strike Fighter

Dark Fighter is immensely powerful in a dark deck, and especially if Dark Armed Dragon is in it. However, by itself, Dark Strike Fighter is not nearly as good. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a great card to have in any deck though. Anytime you can inflict battle damage at will like Dark Strike Fighter lets you do, you know you have a strong fighter. Dark Strike Fighter is an easy to summon, level seven synchro with 2600 attack points and a stellar effect: you can tribute one monster to inflict damage equal to the monster’s level multiplied by 200. If you play Dark Strike Fighter on a swarm deck, you can inflict damage left and right!

6. Thought Ruler Archfiend

Thought Ruler Archfiend easily comes in the top 5 Psychic monsters list and it should come in every top 10 synchro monster list as well. This powerful creature has 2700 attack points and 2300 defense points. Plus it is an amazing effect! Thought Ruler Archfiend destroys a monster, you gain life points equal to that monster’s attack! Also, you can pay 1000 life points to negate the activation of a spell or trap card that targets a Psychic monster and destroy it. The second effect might seem okay (1000 life points is a lot right?), well, not really due to Thought Ruler’s first effect. It is a great card to have in every Psychic deck and meshes well with fairy/heal decks as well!


Yugioh The Wicked Avatar VS. The Wicked Eraser

The Wicked Monsters (The Wicked Avatar, The Wicked Eraser, and the Wicked Dreadroot) are three of the strongest monsters in all of Yugioh. They are promotional Yugioh cards and might take some time to acquire, as you will to have to find and order a specific Shonen Jump magazine from the internet. However, taking the time to obtaining these monsters are worth it; having these monsters in your deck will substantially increase your chances of winning. The Wicked Dreadroot isn’t as popular as the other two, so for today’s card comparison, we’re going to compare The Wicked Avatar and The Wicked Eraser and find out which deserves the title of “The Ultimate Wicked.”

1. The Wicked Avatar

The Wicked Avatar is a monster I would never want to face, and for good reason: it’s always going to have the highest attack on the field! The Wicked Avatar’s effect allows it have 100 more attack and defense points than the monster(s) that had the most attack and defense before The Wicked Avatar’s entrance in the duel. The Wicked Avatar has a great defensive effect too: your foe cannot use spell and trap cards until the end of their second after The Wicked Avatar is played. That means your opponent will virtually have little to none defense for two turns! The Wicked Avatar is force be reckoned with indeed.

Artwork: 1/10, Effect: 10/10, Power: 10/10, Deck Adaptation: 9/10, Game Changer: 9/10, Playability: 7/10. Overall, The Wicked Avatar gets an score of 7.7/10 – C+.

2. The Wicked Eraser

The Wicked Eraser is also another monster to be worried about because its stats are going to really powerful. The Wicked Eraser gains 1000 attack and defense for every card, yes card, on your opponent’s side of the field. The Wicked Eraser, at the least, is going to have 3000 attack points. Now if your opponent’s deck revolves around swarming, like a Blackwing deck, The Wicked Eraser will have at least 4-5 thousand attack points and will be a huge threat. The Wicked Eraser can be used as a last resort monster as well. If your opponent plays numerous ace monsters in one turn and are about to start a life point assault, you can use The Wicked Eraser’s second effect to protect yourself: In your main phase, you can remove The Wicked Eraser from the field an destroy all cards on the field. This effect could be a huge momentum shifter.

Artwork: 6/10, Effect: 9/10, Power: 10/10, Deck Adaptation: 9/10, Game Changer: 9/10, Playability: 7/10. Overall, The Wicked Eraser gets a score of 8.3/10 – B.

Okay, because The Wicked Avatar has the most boring and uncool image, The Wicked Eraser beats The Wicked Avatar in an overall viewpoint. However, excluding artwork, The Wicked Avatar beats the Wicked Eraser by .2 points (9/10 in comparison to 8.8/10)! They are both extremely good monsters but if they were used against each other in a duel, The Wicked Avatar would have a higher attack and defense than The Wicked Eraser! That was the deciding factor.

Yugioh Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste VS Arcanite Magician, the Supreme Wizard

1. Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste

The fusion of a dragon synchro monster and a warrior monster, DKDE is one of Yussei’s most dangerous and deadly monsters. Not only does it have a whopping 3200 attack points, but its effect can pose as a major threat to your opponent as well. Once per turn DKDE can takes effect of a synchro dragon monster in your graveyard. If you use a good dragon deck with powerful dragon synchros, then this effect is very handy! Suppose you have a Trident Dragon in your graveyard, then DKDE gains Trident Dragon’s ability to attack in succession (with the sacrifice of two monsters). A possible OTK! If DKDE is used in a powerful dragon deck, it can become one of the trickiest monsters to defeat.

Artwork: 10/10, Effect: 8/10, Deck Adaptation: 2/10, Power: 10/10, Game Changer: 10/10, Playability: 4/10. DKDE gets an overall rating of a 4.4/5, or a B+ (note that fusion will get get lower scores then other monsters as they are more difficult to bring out and they cannot mesh as easily in random decks as normal, ritual, effect, or synchro monsters can. Thus, I always half the denominator when calculating a monster’s overall factor).
2. Arcanite Magician, the Supreme Wizard

Though the Supreme Wizard isn’t released until Starstrike Blast, I thought it would be fun to compare it with DKDE (as they are both immensely strong fusion monsters). The Supreme Wizard has a decent attack (1400) and great defense (2800). However, through its effect Supreme Wizard can gain two thousand more attack points. When the Supreme Wizard is summoned, it receives two spell counters and gains 1000 attack points were each counter. In addition to that effect, once per turn the Supreme Wizard can remove one counter from play and destroy a card on the field/ or draw a card! It would be the trump monster in any spell counter deck!

Artwork: 8/10, Effect: 9/10, Deck Adaptation: 2/10, Power: 10/10, Game Changer: 9/10, Playability: 4/10. Overall, Arcane Magician, the Supreme Wizard gets a rating of 4.2/5 – B. Which means are winner for the day is DKDE!

Once per turn DKDE can takes effect of a synchro dragon monster in your graveyard. If you use a good dragon deck with powerful dragon synchros, then this effect is very handy! Suppose you have a Black-Winged Dragon in your graveyard, then DKDE gains Black-Winged Dragon’s ability and create a possible OTK! If DKDE is used in a powerful dragon deck, it can become one of the trickiest monsters to defeat.

Artwork: 10/10,  Effect: 8/10, Deck Adaptation: 2/10, Power: 10/10, Game Changer: 10/10, Playability: 4/10.

The Supreme Wizard has a decent attack (1400) and great defense (2800). However, through its effect Supreme Wizard can gain two thousand more attack points. When the Supreme Wizard is summoned, it receives two spell counters and gains 1000 attack points were each counter.

Yugioh Stardust Dragon VS Red Dragon Archfiend

Here is a compare and contrast of two of the earliest, and most synchro monsters in the game: Stardust Dragon and Red Dragon Archfiend. Enjoy!

1. Stardust Dragon

Stardust Dragon was one the first card to be created in 3rd generation Yugioh, and thus it was given great power! Stardust Dragon, the grandfather of synchros, has a strong 2500 attack/2000 defense points and a great, defensive effect. Whenever a card destruction effect is activated, Stardust Dragon can sacrifice itself in order to negate the activation of that effect and destroy the card. But wait, it gets better! If Stardust Dragon is destroyed this way, it can be revived from the graveyard at the end of the turn! Not only can Stardust protect you from deadly effects, but you get it back on your field by the end of the turn as well. Stardust Dragon is a powerhouse monster had a great defensive wall too.

Artwork: 5/10, Effect: 8/10, Power: 8/10, Deck Adaptation: 9/10 Game Changer: 9/10, Playability: 9/10. Overall, Stardust Dragon gets a rating of about 8/10 – B-.

Red Dragon Archfiend

The ultimate rival of Stardust Dragon and the second synchro monster created in 3rd generation Yugioh, Red Dragon Arcfiend packs a ferocious punch with 3000 attack/2000 defense points and a destructive effect. If Red Dragon Archfiend attacks a monster in defense position monster, all other defense position monsters on your foe’s side of the field! Red Dragon Archfiend could potentially clear your foe’s field of monsters. Red Dragon Archfiend also has really cool artwork; it looks so tough and majestic!

Game Changer: 7/10, Effect: 7/10, Playability: 8/10, Deck Adaptation: 8/10, Artwork: 9/10, Power: 9/10. Overall, Red Dragon Archfiend gets a rating of 8 – B-.

It was a hard decision, however Stardust Dragon wins by nail-pin! Though they had the same score, I felt that Stardust Dragon was the better monster due to it having a better Game Changer ability. They’re both very both strong monsters, but again, defense wins matches! And in terms of defense, Stardust completely tops Red Dragon Archfiend.

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.
