It’s the first day of 2022, which is actually the 20th anniversary of the game. For the first few months, I thought it’d be cool to do a CotD review for some iconic and cool cards from the game’s history as a throwback, and luckily enough the first day of the year was on a Saturday. We will start the year with a card that’s basically a Fusion of all the Egyptian Gods, and a card the TCG has yet to obtain, Holacite the Creator of Light.
Holacite is a Level 12 DIVINE Creator God with ? ATK and DEF. The DIVNE Attribute is locked to the Egyptian God stuff and Creator God is literally exclusive to this. The stats literally don’t matter. The only way you can even summon this is to tribute Slifer the Sky Dragon, Obelisk the Tormentor, and The Winged Dragon of Ra. This card’s Special Summon cannot be negated, and you straight up win the Duel if you summon this. I mean, I feel you’ve already won if you got the three Egyptian Gods on the field and the opponent hasn’t removed them, but this just ensures this. Best use for this really is FTKs, since any other turn you can likely attack with the Gods to win the game if you don’t draw this. The wincon is a little asinine to pull off, but it’s more feasible than the Numerounious cards we saw a few weeks ago, and that’s saying something. It’s something that would never be meta if the TCG got it, but it’s a cool card as Egyptian God support. I’m sure it’s nice to own one of the 10,000 copies of this card in the world.
Advanced Rating: 1.5/5
Art: 5/5 This is literally a God, it’s great.
We’re starting 2022 a little differently by branching out into some OCG cards that TCG doesn’t have yet (and possibly may never have). This card was released way back in 2011 in OCG but has never seen a TCG release. Holactie, the Creator of Light (Horakhty? Depending on your sources) is a level 12 DIVINE creator god monster, currently the only one of its kind. It also has ? attack and defense, but as you’ll soon see, it doesn’t have an effect for such, which means its stats are practically zero. Surely it has to have a good effect to make up for it, right?
Predictably, Holactie can’t be normal summoned or set; instead, you’ll have to special summon it by tributing all three Egyptian God cards– Obelisk the Tormentor, Slifer the Sky Dragon, and The Winged Dragon of Ra. Much like its components, Holactie’s summon cannot be negated, and if you successfully summon Holactie, you win the duel. You’d think that today’s metagame would make Holactie easy to summon with seemingly infinite special summons, but it’s still very hard to pull off even with the various Egyptian God support. Compared to the Numerounius family, Holactie is actually somewhat possible to summon without waiting at least 2 turns and hoping your opponent goofs up, so that’s a plus; you can hypothetically FTK with Holactie with a good hand since Obelisk and Slifer, oddly enough, can be special summoned, while Ra has its own support to facilitate its summon. You can forget summoning them all the old fashioned way though, since that requires getting 9 bodies and somehow gaining 2 additional normal summons that turn. Still, while Holactie is a joke of a card, it’d be nice to finally get it in the TCG just for the sake of collectors.
Art: 4/5 Simple and elegant, fitting of a monster that ascends the Egyptian God cards.
