Hello Pojo Fans,
We’ve got a double dose of CoTD for the next two days as we are reviewing the Twin archetype this week, starting things off with Live Twin Ki-sikil & Live Twin Lil-la.
Ki-sikil gains you some LP each time an opponent attacks, which can help, but LP gain/cost isn’t as prominent or needed nowadays. 500LP each time won’t matter much, as Ki-sikil is only 500/0 ATK/DEF. Her best effect is being able to summon her sister: Lil-la. As you expect, Lil-la has same stats but flipped Attribute and effect: DARK instead of LIGHT and costs your opponent 500LP to attack each time (reminiscent of Toll). Both are Cyberse and Level 2, lending them some support. The goal of these two is to get to the archetypes Link Monsters. Because the Link Monsters for the archetype are better I don’t think these two will be staying on the field for very long, let alone for their effects to activate. Even if they were, 500LP would be wiped out from the attack unless the Live Twins were in defense.
They get each other from the deck off each others Normal and Special Summon, and that is good, an instant Link 2. They are fast for their archetype and can be fast within any archetype that does a lot of Link Summoning, but as regular monsters outside of that they are pretty underwhelming. While you could tech them into another deck, many archetypes can do what they do with their own archetype monsters.
Pointless fact: I am a fraternal twin, and like many twins years and years later on in life, my brother and I don’t look a bit alike anymore. Still love him though.
Until Next Time
Moving from lore to the waifu archetype, we now review the Live and Evil Twins from Genesis Impact and we start with a double to look at the two twins themselves, Live Twin Ki-sikil and Lil-la.
Ki-sikil and Lil-la are each Level 2 Cyberses with 500 ATK and 0 DEF, with Ki-sikil being LIGHT and Lil-la being DARK. The stats themselves aren’t impressive, but Cyberse makes these searchable off Lady Debug or Cynet Mining and both being LIGHT and DARK respectively means you could play with Chaos cards. Their effects are similar on the field and on summon. When the opponent declares an attack, Ki-sikil will let you gain 500 LP while Lil-la makes the opponent pay 500 LP to attack, which are fine effects, but you aren’t using these considering these two are most often used as Link Material. On Normal or Special Summon for either while you control no other Monsters, Ki-sikil can summon Lil-la from the hand or Deck and vice versa for Lil-la, making these two cards good starters for plays as they are an instant Link-2 or Rank 2 on their own, which overall is pretty good. You do need no other Monsters, but considering these two on their own don’t have restrictions, it’s likely best that way, and also makes sure you can’t go Ki-sikil into Lil-la and then Lil-la into another Ki-sikil. The summon effects are hard once per turns on both, which is fair. These are two good cards to start plays really, they’re simple yet effective at their jobs and are 3-ofs in any Live/Evil Twin variant. (Advanced Ratings and Arts will be for both since they’re basically similar)
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Art: 2.5/5 They’re fine, matching the V-Tuber theming here, just not for me considering I’m not too interesting in V-Tubers personally.
Late review, but here we are. A double dose with Live (unshaded on both sides) Twin Lil-la and Ki-sikil. Both Cyberese Monsters, in their ever growing pool, both Level 2, with 500 attack and 0 defense, with Ki-sikil being Light and Lil-la being Dark. Our Light Twin gives you 500 Lifepoints each time your opponent declares an attack. That’s not a LOT of Lifepoints, but multiples of these protected on the Field could be 1500 Lifepoints per attack. A few turns of that and you could be sitting really pretty. Once a Turn, if you Normal or Special Summoned this, you can Special Summon a Lil-la from your Deck. Assuming you control no other Monsters, making both these (the effect is reversed on the Dark Twin) excellent opening Turn drops. Lil-la makes your opponent pay 500 Lifepoints for each attack, and just the same, I feel if you had and protected multiples, even just a couple Turns, this could be ugly for your opponent fast. Lots of potential in these Twins for sure.
Art: 3.5/5 Eh, they are Japanese and anime inspired to me, but I’m not a huge fan of either.
