Hello Pojo Fans,
Marincess Blue Tang starts a week of WATER monsters on CoTD.
Foolish Burial built-in off her summon, standard stats for a searcher style card. Giving you something potentially back off being used for a Link Summon I like. Getting a Marincess card off the top three excavation if you happen to excavate one is great. While none of the main deck monsters get any effects off excavation, this effect is more for the Link Monsters. Blue Slug, Coral Anemone, and Marbled Rock all do something with graveyard Marincess monsters. Blue Tang is your monster to set up your graveyard for stuff like those Link Monsters or plays for your next turn involving your graveyard like with Sea Horse or Mandarin, or Link Summon Slug with Blue Tang, get Sea Horse back, Special Summon Sea Horse and link climb much like how Sea Horse does using only herself.
Marincess get better as they climb the link ladder and this card gets you to the card that does that really well (Sea Horse). Oh, also searchable with Cynet Mining, forgot about that.
Until Next Time
Back to the Marincess archetype as they got some new support, we’ll start out the week with one of the new standout monsters for the Main Deck, Marincess Blue Tang.
Blue Tang is a Level 4 WATER Cyberse with 1500 ATK and 1200 DEF. Being a Level 4 WATER is nice for Bahamut Shark in MR 2020, Cyberse might be at the end of their mass amounts of support soon, and the stats overall could be far worse. Upon Normal or Special Summon, Blue Tang lets you send any Marincess card from the Deck to the graveyard, which allows for easy recovery through the Link Monsters like Blue Slug, Coral Anemone, and Marbled Rock, so there’s easy synergy. You can’t send another Blue Slug, but it isn’t like you benefit too much from doing that anyways. If this card is sent to the grave for the Link Summon of a WATER, not necessarily a Marincess even though they got a Link-1 you can use this for, you can excavate the top 3 cards of your Deck to add any excavated Marincess card to your hand while the others go back to the Deck. It’s fairly luck based for the free card, but I feel you should be likely to hit a Marincess card in the themed Deck. At least if you don’t hit any Marincess cards, they don’t go to the graveyard unless they are cards you don’t need for the rest of the Duel. Blue Tang allows you to get some decent advantage in the Deck, so it can be worth to max out on it.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Art: 5/5 I mean, she is cute at least. I won’t judge for not looking like a Cyberse since that’s the whole archetype in a nutshell.
Catch the wave that is Marincess week. Marincess Blue Tang (love this, more on that later) is a Level 4, Water, Cyberese (for some reason) Monster with 1500 attack and 1200 defense. Right away, we see neither of those are great. They could be much worse, but likewise, they could be much better. So, for the unfamiliar, let’s vaguely cover what these cards do.
Monsters of the Main Deck work well to Special Summon from the Hand to further lead to Extra Deck (specifically Link) Summons when the right material already exists on the Field. SO keep that in mind as you read reviews this week. The Graveyard (as we see often these days) is also a key part of this. Seeing as a Normal or Special Summon dumps a Theme Monster (other than herself) from your Deck to your Graveyard.
If used as Link Material and sent to the Graveyard, this card lets you Excavate the top three cards of your Deck and add a Theme Card of your choice to your Hand. The other cards (or all three if none are drawn) are returned to the Deck, which is then shuffled. Each effect here is once per turn. She’s a powerful little card. Cycling the Deck, setting up combos, she just doesn’t do much attack/defense wise, but it’s okay.
Art: 5/5 And another thing, how come I can’t get no tang round here?–Homer Simpson
This is rather pretty though. Love all the blue (appropriately) the wave/splashing behind her, she looks very elegant.
