Hello Pojo Fans,

Advanced Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus wraps up our look at the more advanced version of the Crystal Beasts for this week.

Same effect as Sapphire Pegasus, except it includes if one of your Advanced Crystal Beasts is banished as well. The obvious play, much like with Sapphire Pegasus, is to go for Ruby Carbuncle and trigger a swarm of Crystal Beast monsters from your Spell/Trap zone. With Advanced Crystal Beast Ruby Carbuncle being able to Special Summon itself immediately upon becoming a Continuous Spell, this eliminates the need for a Spell which was needed to Special Summon the original Carbuncle. With Rainbow Dark Dragon banishing DARK monsters for its Special Summon, as well as its ATK-gain effect, ACBSP is critical for RDD as well as cycling back resources. Good stats make it one of your top attacking monsters.

It is all about getting something from your Deck to your field to get closer to Rainbow Dark Dragon, or that swarm play with Carbuncle. Recycling an Advanced Crystal Beast after it is banished gets you back something and with this archetype they need everything they can get. This is a good card, much like its previous version, only slightly better because it includes banished.

The week ends off with what is still probably the best Crystal Beast, even in the Advanced Crystal Beast form: Advanced Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus.

Sapphire Pegasus is a Level 4 WIND Beast with 1800 ATK and 1200 DEF. Good stats on a Level 4, WIND isn’t too great, but Beast is nice (though I don’t know why this isn’t a Winged Beast). Anyways, same effects involving Advanced Dark and becoming a Continuous Spell upon destruction we saw on the previous Advanced Crystal Beasts. Sapphire Pegasus’s effect is to place an Advanced Crystal Beast into your Spell & Trap Zone as a Continuous Spell from your hand, Deck, graveyard, or banished zone. I mean, nothing really changed here from the original Sapphire Pegasus besides the fact it now grabs them from the banished pile so they aren’t gone forever once banished. It’s still a great card to get your Advanced Crystal Beasts out to help summon Rainbow Dragon, I just wish there was an Advanced Crystal Beast Rainbow Dragon to really get some value off this effect. Instead we at least got a highly buffed Ruby Carbuncle to spam your backrow out and get you a bunch of Advanced Crystal Beasts. It was a 3-of as a regular Crystal Beast and it remains a 3-of as an Advanced Crystal Beast. Sapphire Pegasus will always be key to Crystal Beasts as a whole.

Advanced Rating: 3.75/5

Art: 3.5/5 Now here I certainly prefer the original Sapphire Pegasus’s artwork over the Advanced version. It was much more majestic for a pegasus.

Saving the best of the Advanced Beasts for Friday, we come to Sapphire Pegasus.  It’s a short review, but Pegasus is essentially the heart of what makes this Deck go.  A free Crystal Beast to your M/T Zone upon Pegasus being Summoned, in any manner, is just ridiculous.  He adds the speed you need to get your Rainbow Dragon (or whatever the hell variant(s) you’re using) out about as quickly as is possible.  Obviously a 3 of in the Deck, the quicker you get these guys rolling (or flying?) the better of you’re going to be.  All the other Advanced Dark text is still here, of course, and being the strongest of the animal march here at 1800 doesn’t hurt anything either.

Art:  5/5  He’s got the best art, too, what can I say?

Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus is considered the best of the original Crystal Beasts, so how does its evil form stack up? Rounding off our Advanced Crystal Beast coverage is Advanced Crystal Beast Sapphire Pegasus, a level 4 WIND Beast monster with 1800 attack and 1200 defense. While it’s statistically one of the stronger Crystal Beasts, its stats are still nothing to write home about, though being level 4 does help with Xyz plays; the original Sapphire Pegasus can be used for a fairly efficient Rank 4 Xyz combo.

Predictably, Pegasus shares the ability to become a Continuous Spell when destroyed and the clause of going straight to the Graveyard if Advanced Dark isn’t on the field, so make sure you grab it somehow. Most importantly, Pegasus’s sole unique effect is virtually identical to the regular Pegasus, letting you place an Advanced Crystal Beast from your hand, Deck, Graveyard, or being banished directly to the Spell/Trap Zone. Naturally, this will let you easily fill your backrow with Crystal Beasts so that you can bring them all out with Advanced Crystal Beast Ruby Carbuncle, and pulling them out of the Deck makes it easier to summon Rainbow Dark Dragon. Much like the original Pegasus, it’s easily one of the best Advanced Crystal Beasts, only possibly beaten by Advanced Crystal Beast Emerald Eagle in terms of importance. That said, while it is an excellent card for the deck, the deck itself is still painfully mediocre, even with help from regular Crystal Beast cards; the game plan is still trying to OTK with Rainbow Dark Dragon, which trades in the powerful effects of the other Rainbow Dragons for…more attack. It’s nice that they’re finally printed, I suppose. Overall, if you play Advanced Crystal Beasts, no reason not to run 3.

Advanced: 3/5
