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?
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. 5. Delta Flyer Delta Flyer is a great tuner because it not only has pretty high attack points for a level [...]
All right, the two winners of the Yugioh Top 10 Contest are morfowt with his post about top 10 level one cards and frycook48, with his post about top 10 underrated archetypes! Congratulations to both of you guys, as well as everyone else who tried out. Though these guys tied, do any of you have reasons to make only one of them the champs? If you do, I’ll read it and if the reason is legitimate enough, I will choose one of these two as the official winners. Once again, congratulations, and thanks for playing!
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)
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!
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!
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.
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!
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 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.
My first meeting with a Mist Wurm card was pretty hilarious! Towards the end of my trip to Nepal, my parents and I visited a common goods store to buy some items. In the store, there was a games section as well and it was stocked with merchandise of games like Beyblade, Pokemon, and even Yugioh! There was a special Yusei tin pack in the Yugioh section, and guess what the cover card was? Mist Wurm. However, it wasn’t just any Mist Wurm, it was a poorly made, fake version of the card. The Yugioh sticker at the bottom-right of the card was badly places, the title was in the wrong font, and even the holographic image looked more rough than bright. Though I was bummed out that I lost a chance to acquire a fierce synchro monster, that moment really made my day! Thus, I decided Mist Wurm should be my card of the week.
Mist Wurm is one of the most formidable and rare Yugio synchro monsters around. Though it could be a bit of a hassle to summon due to needing two non-tuner monsters, its stats and effect makes up for it. Not only does Mist Wurm have a dominating 2500 attack points, it also has a solid effect. When it is synchro summoned, you can return up to three cards your opponent controls. That basically guarantees a direct attack opportunity.
