Beast of Talwar
LV 6/2400 ATK/2150 DEF
I like the art on this card. I heard that this is also
the first card printed here in the US (like Dark
Raichu was for Pokemon). Kinda cool, eh?
2400 ATK if almost as good as Summoned Skull. If you
don't want to run too many Summoned Skulls, you might
want to consider playing this card. You can't search
it with Witch of the Black Forest though.
Should you play it? Personally I don't really see a
point since you can just run Summoned Skulls or Jinzo.
It might work in a Shield and Sword deck though...
Beast of Talwar -- Monday
Introduction: Talwar! Tawlar! Tawlar! (Don't know what
it means though).
Why should you use it?
Why shouldn't you use it?
Reasons: I'm back! I took last week off because of
some homework and
Thanksgiving. But I don't think it was that much
anyways. Now I'm back to
start this report. Now let's start with an interesting
week. We look at
Beast of Tawlar (Don't ask what Talwar means, me and
Nick don't know what it
is either). This is a big monster, as big as the
almighty Jinzo and Summoned
Skull. This monster packs in a 2400 ATK Points with a
whopping 2150 DEF
Points. This is one big monster. This monster has no
"side" effect like
jinzo, so it almost is like a summoned skull. It's
strong defense means that
it can be set, which is good against those pesky Trap
Holes. Also, if your
looking for a 2400 and rather use something else
rather than Jinzo this
might be your pick. This monster has "balanced" stats
written all over it.
Though this is a tribute mosnter which makes it kind
of bad. Also with the
high defense means it is harder to search out with
Witch of the Black
Forest. Summoned Skull is a lot better because Witch
can search it out, and
it has 100 ATK points more, enough to kill those Jinzo.
Though, its your
decision. You are picking a well balanced monster,
over a powerful monster?
Well it's your choice.
Rating: Not bad monster at all. But defitantely won't
replace the two big
tribute monsters, Summoned Skull and Jinzo. If your
using this, I highly
suggest using Summoned Skull or Jinzo over it. This
monster gets a 3.2 It's
not bad, but there is 2 way better monsters than this
Conclusion: Talwar?! Talwar?! Talwar?! Talwar?! Talwar?!
Still don't know
what it means.
Monday - Beast of Talwar
Today we look at beast of Talwar. This monster has no
effect and has stats of 2400/2150.
This monster is just a watered down version of
Summoned Skull. First off it has the lower attack. And
second it has the higher defense. Of course at first
that sounds like a good thing, but if you think about
it, you dont use cards like this to defend anyway. And
that higher defense means that you cant search for it
with Witch of the Black Forest.
I give this card a 3/5. The attack is still nothing to
scoff at, but just stick with the skulls.
Beast of Talwar is pretty
It's a card you don't want in your hand,
Summoned Skull is simply a better find,
The 100 less attack will put you in a bind.
That is simply what it is. Very few tribute monsters
are played as is. With Jinzo having an ability better
than this, and Summoned Skull having a better attack,
all at the same tribute cost, this card just doesn't
cut it. The better defense isn't even something
needed. You would mainly need a tribute monster to
The card isn't bad, there just are better choices.
Monday - Beast of Talwar
o.o I'm doing a CotD?
Wow. Anyways, I've had, umm, issues the past couple
of weeks, so I've kind of neglected my CotD duties.
I also noticed my column hasn't been updated in
almost 3 months, so expect a new one soon. OK, time
for the review.
This is a card that was
created exclusively for the English release of
Pharaoh's Servant. It currently doesn't exist in
Japanese (although it might, one of these days).
For a Level 6, 2400/2150 isn't that bad of stats,
although Summoned Skull outpowers
it and Jinzo has an effect. If you
ever need to put it in Defense, though, it stands a
better chance of surviving. When would that
happen? Dunno :/ It can use Shield & Sword
better than the above, if for some perverse reason
you ever end up using the two cards together :/
Not only does it get
outpowered by Skull and doesn't have an effect like
Jinzo, you can't even Witch of the Black
Forest it out! Two words: trade
