Grenosauras a Dinosaur Xyz Monster, of the Fire
attribute, with 2000 attack and 1900 defense, who is
Rank 3, and Xyz Summoned with two Level 3 Monsters.
Now, like yesterday, you are very likely using
Tuners for this if you do this at all, unless you
are playing a Deck specifically for Xyz
Monsters...or maybe say Lightsworn, Zombies, where
Level 3 Monsters might be naturally flowing. Like
yesterday, I feel you don't blow off Tuners to do an
Xyz Summon. I've been looking hard at Generation
Force, there's a lot more of these guys coming, and
some are just ridiculous...requiring more than two
Monsters for an Xyz Summon, or requiring two (or
more) Level 8 Monsters...it's easier to Summon
Synchros who require other Synchros than stuff like
that. Anyway, as for this card, when this card
destroys an opponent's Monster by Battle, you can
detach an Xyz Material Monster, and inflict 1000
damage to your opponent. 1000 damage IS good, but I
don't see this card being worth the investment. Only
2000 attack, you might be able to pull this effect
off once. It IS better than yesterday...
But only marginally...
*on a closing adding to Monday...#39 Utopia, my
score should actually be .25-.50 higher than it
is...in short, being a #Xyz is good. A lot of the
other #Xyz cards can only be destroyed by other
Monsters that has # in it's name...so (eventually)
it should read 2.5 +x /5 where x = the number of
#Xyz Monsters your opponent runs that Utopia can
Will you be seeing much of this Rank 3 Xyz? Not
much, outside of Karakuri decks that want more use
out of Machine Duplication. Tour Guide from the
Underworld can summon this, too, at the cost of
Sangan and about $70. It's also a good emergency
beater for Jurrac decks.
The damage effect is nothing special--all you'd use
this for is the ATK, and maybe the DEF. Like most
Xyz monsters, and by coincidence (what it'll usually
be made with), this is the result of not having a
non-Tuner to make a Synchro with, and not much else.
If your opponent doesn't have much control over the
duel, summoning this can put some pressure on them
until they can top 2000 ATK, but most good decks can
do that on a moment's notice, and you'll have lost
the two monsters you used to make this.
Xyz monsters are tricky to rate. You can never quite
know when they'll be summoned, what the materials
will be, and what the situation will be. If you see
a pair of monsters in your deck that are likely to
come out together, try some Xyz monsters, and see
how they work.
Art: Looks like Gantetsu.
Fun Fact: The .8 means it's in the middle of being
in the middle.
Tomorrow: I don't like the common reprint >:(
Grenosaurus can win games and matches. This dino
may not be a strong monster to Xyz summon early game
but late game when your opponent is running out of
resources, taken a lot of damage and/or gone through
the whole line up of solemns, Grenosaurus will apply
the pressure to close it out. He makes virtually any
set chump blocker into an attack position and 0
attack token when he destroys the monster by battle
and sends it to the graveyard. He can not activate
his effect on tokens or if Dimensional Fissure or
Macro Cosmos is active or any other card that would
This is the first Rank 3 Xyz Monster the TCG is
getting. This one is...okay, I guess. He requires 2
Level 3 monsters, and when he destroys a monster by
battle and sends it to the Graveyard, you can detach
an Xyz Material from him to burn for 1000. The burn
isn't that bad, and a 2000 attacker isn't terrible.
I feel like Konami was attempting to make something
similar to Dark Strike Fighter, but watered it down
so much that it's nowhere near as broken or even
outstanding at all. Not a bad card, and 2000 damage
and attack isn't terrible, but otherwise there's
nothing too special about him. Obviously it becomes
better later in the game when Life Points are lower.
I think the main attraction for him might be giving
up the two smaller monster for a bigger one, but at
that point I'd rather just use a two-Tribute monster
with a better effect.
