Hello Pojo Fans,

Shaddoll Fusion is Throwback Thursday choice for Shaddoll Week.

Searchable fusion card for Shaddolls. While it’s a standard fusion card in mechanics, it gets better if your opponent has an Extra Deck monster on the field. The added benefit of being able to thin your deck using this card lends you extra Shaddoll effects and other monsters you may send to the grave (Mathematician). When not needing to use any monsters on your field or hand for a Fusion Summon it feels like a cost-free Super Poly, minus gaining field advantage. A turn one Winda while keeping your monsters in your hand gives you more to work with. Mid-to-late game you can thin your deck of things you may not need like a hand trap or a side deck card with Shaddoll Fusion to get to a big monster. With more Shaddolls of different Attributes you now can access your other Shaddoll Fusion monsters better.

Throwback Thursday brings us to the most unique Fusion Spell at the time of release that was so good that it’s been replicated for many archetypes, Shaddoll Fusion.

Shaddoll Fusion is a Normal Spell that lets you Fusion Summon a Shaddoll Fusion from the Extra Deck by using materials in your hand or on your field. Nothing special here except it’s a searchable Poly for the archetype and of course it triggers Shaddoll effects, but we get into the once unique trait of the card because if the opponent controls a monster summoned from the Extra Deck (which they will most likely), you can use materials in your Deck as well. No limit on the number of materials, which is great, and it lets you literally trigger any Shaddoll you desire, and it doesn’t have to just send Shaddolls so you can use Performages or something from the Deck for your Construct or get two Shaddoll effects while summoning Winda or tomorrow’s card. It’s a hard once per turn, which is good when you consider it letting you use the Deck. It’s a must for Shaddolls since it’s an insanely powerful Fusion card in Shaddolls that you can recycle, but it’s still a 3-of just like El Shaddoll Fusion because you really want to see them in the hand.

Advanced Rating: 4.5/5

Art: 4.25/5 It’s another swirl, kinda looks like a dark version of Gem-Knight Fusion though. I like the darkness here.

Shaddoll Fusion (not to be confused with its El counterpart) is our Throwback Thursday card, which has only had one prior review.  Here’s the link back from 2014.  Anyway, this is a Normal Magic card that really isn’t particularly special.  Not to say it isn’t good, just it doesn’t do anything AWESOME.  You are permitted to use Monsters from your Deck (which opens up about any possibility you need Fusion wise, if you get to do so) as long as your opponent has a Monster on the Field that they Special Summoned from their Extra Deck.  Which is, easy enough to accomplish, of course.  This might not be the best card to Draw into in the first turn (or couple turns) but you should get that effect more often than not.  You’re only allowed one of these a turn, so if you need more than one Fusion Monster in the turn, use something else.  I really feel since you can only use one a turn, it would be appropriate for this to have been a Quickplay, like Super Poly, but whatever.  No reason not to use it in the Deck though.

Art:  4.5/5  Nice swirling demons here, to symbolize Fusion, of course.  The rest of the blots almost look like they could be spores or germs or something.

We would love more volunteers to help us with our YuGiOh Card of the Day reviews.  If you want to share your ideas on cards with other fans, feel free to drop us an email.  We’d be happy to link back to your blog / YouTube Channel / etc.   😉
