Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh Card of the Day
Blue Eyes White Dragon
- Ultra Rare
- Light [Dragon]
Reviewed - 4.1.02
Rating - 4.5/5
Blue Eyes is
definitly ONE of the best monsters in the game. IMO,
Summoned Skull is the best. BEWD you have to
sacrifice two monsters for, and unless you use
Change of Heart, Soul Exchange, Flute of Summoned
Dragon or Monster Reborn, its hard to pay.
If you manage to
get Blue Eyes out, the only monster that can stop it
is Man Eater Bug. 3000 attack is awesome. 2500
defense is great, too. If you play a Raigeki before
BEWD, its usually 3000+ damage straight to life
points. If you use Flute of Summoned Dragon with
Lord of D., and you play two BEWD, I would say 6000
ain't too shabby!
Some combo's with
Blue Eyes are Card Destruction, Monster Reborn and
take the Blue Eyes you just discarded and play it
and there's no tribute involved! That and Flute of
Summoned Dragon + Lord of D. to play two Blue Eyes,
one Blue Eyes + Red Eyes, etc.
Rating: 4 out of 5
This is a pretty good card, but you should
never EVER rely on it for victory. It's one of those
"if you get the chance" cards. However, if
you can get it out, you can blow your opponent away.
Combos: You can abuse the hell out of this thing
with the right combos. If BEWD is in someone's
cemetery, use Monster Reborn and kablamo! Wipe out
everything on the opposing side. Also, you can use
Lord of Dragon and Flute of Dragon Summon to bring
two of these things out and haul ass.
This is a really nice card.
With the highest atk power in the game once you get
this monster out you have a good chance at a win.
Though this card has its draw backs, you must sacrifice
two monster to play it (unless special summoned),
and there are many cards primaraly used for getting
it of the field. Such as dark hole, raigeki,
change of hearts, ect.
This is a great card to use
Lord of D, Flute of summoning
Dragon, and one/two bewd
For a first turn bewd play lord of
D, combined with the flute of summoning dragon
(allows you to play two dragon type monsters if lord
of D is in play as a special summon). Lord of
D's effect is "All dragon type monsters are not
effectd my magic cards, trap cards, or other effects
while this card is face up on the feild".
This will save your bewd(s) from cards like dragon
capture jar, Raigkei, change of hearts. It
will also save your dragons in hand from card
Card Destruction, bewd, and
Use card destruction, then monster
reborn to get your self a first turn bewd.
Overall - 5/5 Casual: 5/5 Less preparation for big hitters makes
it more powerful in general. Chances are get this
bad boy out and pwnz everything.
Tourny: 5/5 Even with insta-kill magics and more
wariness of the BEWD, heís still the best out
there, if played to counter his major weakness
(Jar), heís still the best.
Blue-Eyes, White DragonÖ The
most powerful card by itself in the current
environment. The only things that might be able to
touch are Dark Magicians and Summoned Skulls, and
even then it requires heavy Magic.
While a decent stand-alone card, it becomes a mighty
force when coupled with synergy cards. Namely- Lord
of D., The Flute of Summoning Dragon, Dragon
Treasure, and Mountains. Those cards will either
pump him up or get him out easier. Another more
generic card De-Trap. Itíll be your main defense
against Dragon Capture Jar, as Lord of D. is not
what Iíd call stable. Soul Exchange and Ultimate
Offering will make it easier to get your BEWD out.
Just be wary of Trap Holes, Fissures, Dark Holes,
and Raigekis because once your opponent sees
youíve got a BEWD out, they know they must take it
The main problem is, however, is the real lack of
dragons that go well with the BEWD. o_O Most of the
worthwhile dragons are not four stars and generally
just take up room. For this reason I suggest giving
BEWD a support role in another deck form. Iíd play
him as a powerful seven star monster, not as a deck
basis, as the current card selection isnít kind
towards non-Spellcasters/Fiends. =/
So now your opponent slaps a BEWD down with a smirk
and kills your Summoned Skull after Change of Heart-ing
you Dark Magician into attacking your OTHER Summoned
Skull. Things look pretty bleak. How are you going
to stop an unstoppable monster force like the BEWD?
Heh, in Yu Gi Oh, it isnít all that hard at all.
Trap Hole works before he even gets it out. Soul
Exchange/Change of Heart and tributing it is a
painful blow. Dark Hole and Raigeki should be used
carefully. If it works, Fissure would be completely
viable. Swords of Revealing Light can buy you some
much needed time.
For monsters your choices are narrowed down.
Man-eating Bug and Hane-Hane remove it from play.
Wall of Illusion can also be used. As for actually
attacking and killing the beast, a large combo is
required. The most widely known and commonly used is
as follows: Get a Summoned Skull and/or Dark
Magician (2500). Play Yami for the field (2700). Add
an Equip Magic like Book of Secret Arts or Dark
Energy (3000) or Sword of Dark Destruction (3100) or
all of them (3400). Volia! A BEWD killer! You can
also use the Trap Reinforcements, but those only
last one turn.
What does all this point to? Even the strongest
monster in the game falls prey to strategy and
magicÖ But so what!? Itís the strongest there
is! Use and be happy! =D
Overall -2.75 Casual Play: 3/5 Tournament Play
Pros: 3000 Atk 2500 Def..
Trading for deck needs.
Can be summoned without Tribute
When tribute needs to be paid
sacrificing two monsters can really hurt.
A lot of
anti dragon (Cards like raigeki, and man eater bug
can really hurt.)
Reasons for cons: Now, I know you
all, are like why did he only rate Blue Eyes White
Dragon a 2.5/5?! Well, the reason I don't really
like this card is, because of mainly Dragon Capture
Jar. And since there is only one set out so far in
American. There isn't much anti of anything. The
only real anti Dragon Capture Jar is, remove trap.
Otherwise your Blue Eyes White Dragon is well
screwed. Also cards like Raigeki, and trap
hole(unless used with monster reborn/The Flue of
summon dragons), Fissure. Monster reborn with
any of those is deadly. Also as all of you good
yugioh people know you have to sacrifice two
monsters to play it. And one more to add to the list
is our favorite staple of every deck Man Eating
Reasons for Pros: The attack of this thing is
crazy! 3000 o_O! Man that combined with Raigeki is
one sick mon! Combined with Monster Reborn, and well
you will have two monsters attacking your oppenent.
Also, for all you pokemon players this card is the
charizard of pokemon. Ooohh big scary dragon,
doesn't that remind you of the zard? Although
compared to Charizard this thing is pretty, well
better. Another good point is you can trade it
for other cards you need to make your ultimate deck
etc etc etc... And finally with lord of D and The
flute of summoned dragons, right now it is the only
monster that can be summoned without tribute(unless
you use monster reborn) You, like any other
type of monster have equipment cards for your BEWD.
That can raise attack and defense which could come
in handy. Combos: The Most obvious Combo is The
Flute of Summoned Dragons with Lord of D. If you are
playing against it Raigeki with Monster reborn is
another Obvious combo... What can I say this thing
MIGHT be loaded with combos in the future, but for
right now it is just a big monster ready to help
possibly win you a duel. Well thats my spiffy review
of Blues Eyes White Dragon tune in tomorrow for my
next zainy adventure in dueling ;O
