 Trading Card Game Tips from fans

 

August 2007

Round 2: One More Spell Striker Combo - Shadow Phoenix
 

Hey, Shadow Phoenix here again with one more combo. You probably remember me from my first Spell Striker tips. Well, I'm back with another tip! (No, I am NOT some guy that will talk about Striker for the rest of my life. I just remembered some tips I forgot to put in the original tip bundle. Besides, I will talk about other combos as well later.) This first one is about a REALLY old card + Striker. This is my last Striker tip, I swear as of August 23, 2007 (That was the date I started this tip. I had to stop and read some response e-mail! ) : 
 
Spell Striker
EARTH [Warrior / Effect]

Level 3
ATK: 600 / DEF: 200
"This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card can only be Special Summoned by removing 1 Spell Card in your Graveyard from play. This card can attack your opponent's Life Points directly. Battle Damage to this card's controller from a battle involving this card becomes 0."
 
You remember this guy, right? He has infinite combos (I counted up to 33 in 1 day, but there are probably many more), but this is the last one I will send in to Pojo.com or anyone. Now, for the other card:
 
Ring of Magnetism
SPELL
"This card can only be equipped to your own monster. The monster equipped with this card decreases its ATK and DEF by 500 points. In addition, all the monsters on your opponent's side of the field must attack the monster equipped with this card when they attack."
 
For some reason, I can't find many people with this card anymore. Only 1 person has e-mailed me with even a mention of it! Granted, in this metagame, it is seen as terrible, but there ARE uses for this card. Most people originally bought this in Metal Raiders, when it could technically be Equipped to your opponents monsters, forcing them to attack themselves. Obviously, they fixed that, but the edited card is still useful. When used with my original Striker/HOCW combo, it forces your opponent to only attack your invincible Striker.  Plus, because Striker is a Special Summon, you can set up another strategy with your Normal Summon. Two kind individuals (Matthew and Laurie) also pointed out that the OCG card Mist Body could replace HOCW, but without the ATK restrictions or targeting protection. I used HOCW for 3 reasons:
1: It just seemed tailor-made for Striker.
2: It can't just be splashed. This keeps away leeches (people that assimilate all good decks without thinking).
3: It is very underrated. I wanted to give it a day in the spotlight. : )
 
That's all I will be saying for now. My next e-mail will be on one of my favorite underrated cards: The Wicked Eraser! The Pojo people responsible for putting these tips in the right place should add this to a bundle of other Yu-gi-oh tip e-mails whenever they want!
 
If you have any comments, e-mail me at archieiy@msn.com. Flames graciously accepted.  Each flame I get, is converted into my undying passion for the game of Yu-gi-oh!
