    Guess who's back... back again... Okay I'll stop.. Anyways today is another version of Dealers Choice!  Today we will review our favorite Promo card.  However it cannot be a reprint (such as Corile or Terror Pit).  Sadly we cannot give them any more love T_T..  So on with my favorite Promo, it's none other than the potential OTK Olgate, Nightmare Samurai.  Here's its stats!!

Set: N/A
Well since it wasn't in the data base I had to type all that in.. Boy was that a pain.  Okay back onto the review.
Civilization/Type: Darkness: A wide played Civilization.  It's main focus is destruction.  Demon Commands are some of the less played types because of the fact that they cost too much (Exception of Daidalos).  Here we have a "High Cost" Demon Command.  However I don't know if people will use it for evolution purposes like your Gigantic Ballom and wipe out your opponents field.  But I'm not so sure if you want to possibly "waste" him.
Cost/Power Ratio: 7/6000  As I said, pretty steep cost there.  Though it does come backed with a 6000 power monster, it doesn't have a lifetime warranty.  Let's see what it's effect does come with.
Effect: First off we have double breaker.  Not so surprising for the fact that plenty of these high cost creatures come with that as well.  I guess it is just the price you pay for that power.. The second effect it unique to this creature.  It is the only creature to my knowledge that has this ability.  That by itself it pretty cool.  His effect can lead you to a potential OTK.  It states "Whenever on of your creatures is destroyed, you may untap this creature."  Let's see if you can realize it.
Well if you haven't already I'll lead you in on it.  Say for example, you have creature that can attack your opponent, Olgate and Marrow Ooze the Twister while your opponent has Five shields and no creatures.  First off, attack with Olgate (3 Shields).  Second with Marrow Ooze (2 Shields).  Then because of Marrow Oozes effect, it will automatically destroy itself, untapping Olgate.  Olgate will then swing and wipe out your opponents remaining shields.  Then your last creature, whatever it may be, will attack for game.  Pretty cool, eh.  Well, not necessarily if your opponent has Shield Triggers.  This is where you can put in Cryptic Totem or Boltemous (SP) into your deck, negating all your opponents options..  Well just repeat your scenario attacking with Cryptic/Bolt. first then Olgate, then Ooze and then Olgate again.. Very cool indeed.  So now that we have been introduced to the First ever "actual OTK" for DM, what do you think about it.  Very complicated to pull off, but very rewarding in the end.  Well that is about all I can say for his effect, let's see his ratings.
Constructed:(Built around him) 5/5 Well if it is built around him, you obviously need him
Constructed:(Regular) 2/5  He can be used, but with all the control, he may just be Corile'd or bounced.  Unfortunately he comes with one of the games worst drawbacks, Summoning Sickness.
Overall:(Average) 3.5/5  Not so bad, but definitely stay away from your regular deck and put him aside for your Binder or OTK. 
Well that is all for today.  Hope you read this and enjoyed it.. Please send any comments to danieljs@bellsouth.net for e-mail or MSN.  You can also pm me in the forum under horus master lv8.. Though I am not sure if I will have power because of Rita.  "Till next time, have fun, happy dueling, good luck if you are going to a Tourney, and God Bless!!
