This deck type is often overlooked as useless. I
haven't gone and put the Deck together myself, but I
can imagine what it would work as. Amazoness Archers
= best. overlooked. trap. ever. It can kill MULTIPLE
opponent's monsters in the right scenarios.
The support cards aren't all that great though for
other things -- the Spell card that swaps an
Amazon's and another monster's ATK for 1 turn, (Spellcaster?)
I look at this as an asset to Poor Man's Beatdown,
an 1800 ATKer (after self-boost) that becomes 1900
if you can get 2 of them out at the same time. I
know it's a lot more than that, and you won't keep 2
out at the same time for very long, but Amazoness
didn't get the support it deserves.
Amazoness Paladin isnít a card you would want to use
in many decks. In fact, its use seems to be
effective only in an Amazoness deck.
Amazoness Paladinís effect is very similar to
Machine Kings whereas you get 100 attack points for
having certain monsters on the field. But unlike
Machine King Amazoness Paladin canít be powered up
with a simple DNA Surgery.
Unfortunately you wonít see much of a power boost
because you donít often see more than 2-3 monsters
on the field at the same time in a best-case
I highly recommend not using this in anything other
than a hardcore Amazoness deck.
3/5 Ė Amazoness Deck
Wednesday: Amazoness Paladin
We're going all over the place this week, aren't we?
Today s card is Amazoness Paladin, an interesting,
oft ignored common from Magicians Force.
Her stats aren't great, but she does boost herself;
so she's essentially a Witchable 1800 attacker. Sure
these aren't quite what they used to be, but 1800
can hold its own, as well as hit for a nice little
chunk of damage. She's also a Warrior, so there s
quite a bit of support there.
Paladin boosts herself further for each other
Amazoness you have on the field. Best case scenario:
You get a 2300 ATK monster with no drawbacks. Likely
scenario: 1900-2000. This still isn't bad, seeing as
Paladin is essentially the Amazoness beatstick.
Of course, her use is really limited to an Amazoness
deck, where in addition to getting a power boost,
she has a lot of support; otherwise, there are just
better monsters to use.
Typical tournament deck: 2.5/5
Amazoness deck: 4/5
OVERALL RATING: 3.3/5
