Hello Pojo Fans,
Book of Lunar Eclipse is a double Book of Moon, but not as good as Book of Eclipse.
A 2-for-2 Quick-Play Spell, BoLE will flip 2 face-up monsters on the field face-down. This works for your monsters or your opponents monsters, if you would be using something that likes to be flipped. Book of Eclipse flipped everything face-down and would give your opponent cards in the End Phase per monsters flipped face-up, but you would use Book of Eclipse as an offensive card most of the time and close out their field before the negative. Book of Lunar Eclipse costs you itself, a card, and you only get two monsters to flip face-down, while Book of Eclipse would cost you just itself and flip everything. Also, Link Monsters are a thing now and those aren’t able to be flipped, making cards in the “Book” series tougher to use. It can hold some utility: being defensive or offensive, getting a card from your hand into the grave to activate effect(s) or set up your grave, but I don’t see it being better than Book of Eclipse other than using BoE defensively can hurt you greatly if you don’t close out the game next turn.
Book of Moon has fallen off, and I can’t see Book of Lunar Eclipse being any better.
Until Next Time
Middle of the week we see an evolution to the classic Book of Moon with Book of Lunar Eclipse.
BoLE is a Quick-Play Spell that lets you discard a card to target two face-up monsters on the field and change them to face-down Defense Position. Book of Moon is one of the greatest minus ones in the game considering how good it is at interruption, but giving up two cards can be somewhat of an ask. Hitting two monsters can be good, but your opponent might not always have two you want to hit, and since you can’t choose up to 2, you’ll have to choose your own if the opponent doesn’t have other monsters. It also targets, which might be out of date, but I guess it’s whatever. With all that said, I can see it coming up where you need to set two monsters instead of one. This could be good in a Deck relying on FLIP monsters to set your monster and the opponent’s. The biggest downside is the discard, but I guess they don’t want to make this a strictly better Book of Moon, so I respect that. Nice card to throwback to the legacy of a great Spell in this game’s past.
Advanced Rating: 3.5/5
