Today's Card of the Day Review happens to be
Noble Arms - Caliburn, the Super Rare out of Cosmo
Blazer and also the Sneak Peak Ultra Rare Promo
It is an Equip Spell made for the Noble Knight
archetype. With that said, here is the card text for
those who doesn't know:
"You can only control 1 face-up "Noble Arms -
Caliburn". Equip only to a Warrior-Type monster. It
gains 500 ATK. Once per turn: You can gain 500 Life
Points. If this face-up card on the field is
destroyed and sent to the Graveyard: You can target
1 Warrior-Type "Noble Knight" monster you control;
equip this card to that target. You can only use
this effect of "Noble Arms - Caliburn" once per
For starters, this card offers a 500 ATK boost
for any Warrior-type equipped to it. With Medraut,
that makes him a solid 2200 ATK with this equipped.
Also, by activating this card's effect, you get a
free 500 Life Points a turn and free is almost
always good to have.
With Medraut able to Special Summon monsters so
easily and also purposely popping the Noble Arms so
it can be re-equipped, you can use this effect at
least 2-3 times a turn, giving you a free 1000-1500
Life Points, making Solemn Warning a lot more live
in this format.
Unfortunately, that is about the full strength of
it. Gallatin does give a 1000 ATK boost, which is
far more relevant while, at the same time, the ATK
decrease is so small that by the time it is
something to be worried about, the card would be
popped and transferred to something else.
I can see this being ran at 1 copy strictly as a
tech because of the free Life Points, which can help
you win the game if it ever goes to time, but I
doubt it will see any more play than that. Gallatin
is almost always better for the course.
Traditional Format: 1/5 (It's very bad there.
There is more effective ways of gaining Life Points
or ATK in that format.)
Advanced Format: 2/5 (It's only good enough as a
tech whenever you need immediate Life Point gain.
Otherwise, just run 3x Gallatin.)
