Well Pojo Fans, after
our week of nice rest relaxation, etc, etc, us cotd
pplz are back. And today's card is. . .
Tourney Play: 4
Casual Play: 4
Overall Play: You
+ Its not restricted 1
per deck, yet...
+ It is one of those
cards that can help clear the field.
+ Gets rid of oppenent's
- It has a dark hole
- Magic Jammer stops it
right in its tracks.
- If you play it on the
field your oppenent's heavy storm could own you.
RFP: In Japan, right
now, this card is restricted one per deck, but in
America its two per deck. This makes this card
pretty nice, because you'll have a better chance of
drawing it. The more of a copy that you have of a
card the better chance you will end up drawing it.
So, by not restricting it one per deck, a pro is
that you have a better chance to draw it, because it
is more available to you. Remember the old days of
just LoB and you were afraid to attack, because of
Wabuku? Well this card is one of those cards that
helps you clear the field for a direct damage
assault. So imo anything that can clear the field
for an open attack is a pretty good card. And
finally, the obvious. It gets rid of your oppenent's
magic/traps. So Trap Hole can now be countered. And
you could get rid of your oppenent's Mirror Force,
and that is always a plus.
RFC: Anything with a
Dark Hole like effect, you shouldnt use unless your
about to win the game or if you have a clear field
on your side before using the card. Another really
good card that counters this one is Magic Jammer.
Although all you really need for this is a Seven
Tools of the Bandit, and then Magic Jammer will be
negated. And finally say you want to play it on the
field, and save it for later. And if your oppenent
uses there own Heavy Storm then they could get rid
of your stuff, and the Heavy Storm. Although I would
keep this card in my hand, and use it when I was
Heavy Storm + Raigeki:
Clear field to do max damage to your oppenent.
Heavy Storm + Magician
of Faith or Mask of Darkness: Discard your mirror
force or raigeki? Get it back with either Magician
of Faith or Mask of Darkness...
Thats about it. Last
week I went to Orgins in Ohio and placed top 4 at
both Yugioh tournies. I had fun, and met meh online
Buddies. I also met Rouge there. He was pretty cool,
and owned me in the top 4 of the constructed
tourney. I'll beat him next time ;) Um yea thats
besides the point. Next year if ya can make Orgins,
go it was a blast, and as always good luck and happy
Tuesday - Heavy
This is the card that
makes going second a good thing. If I open up with one
of these in my hand, I almost always choose to go
It can be very
devastating when your opponent lays half their hand on
the field and you strip it away. As you should know,
the best time to play this is when you have nothing in
your Magic/Trap section, or atleast nothing of
Being able to do mass
destruction to Magic/Trap cards can be very
powerful in this game. I was suprised when I heard
that Heavy Storm was being restricted to 2. I was
almost sure it would of been restricted to 1.
On a side note, I just
got back from a weekend vacation to Origins in
Columbus, Ohio. I wasn't able to compete in either of
the Yu-Gi-Oh! tournaments, but I must say the new
league looks like a bright future for this game. Right
now I'm just hoping my local comic shop was one of the
300 selected to do the first season.
Congrats' to Zap for
making 3rd place in the Yu-Gi-Oh! constructed
Tue- Heavy Storm
Heavy Storm is our next MRD card of the day… To
start it off, Heavy Storm is pre-restricted and for
a good reason- it is basically the only decent way
of destroying Magic/ Trap cards. It is basically the
Dark Hole for M/Ts. Now, the obvious time to use it
is when you’ve got no M/T and your opponent has
2-5. However, timing with Heavy Storm can get a lot
trickier and generally more effective.
One M/T- Well, you really shouldn’t use HS against
one M/T unless you’re afraid your Barrel Dragon
will be trap holed. You needn’t worry about it
being countered; if it’s a negation card, it’ll
get used up anyway.
Two M/T- Now here it gets a little harder. If they
negate your HS, their other face down card is either
Mirror Force or a restricted card. In this case,
switch most of your monsters into defense mode, then
attack with your strongest monster, assuming you can
kill their monster. Either you’ll take the Mirror
hit or you’ll kill their monster. Either way,
you’ve determined that their Mirror Force is no
longer on the field. Of course, this won’t work if
your monster isn’t worthy of being Mirror’ed. =/
Three + M/T- Just play HS and hope for the best. At
worst, they lose their Jammer and a card/ Judgment
and half their lp. Best you clear the M/T field. =\
When to play:
Before playing a monster- They’ll lose their Trap
Hole, and give you freedom to play the Barrel.
Before playing a restricted magic- If they Jamm it,
they’ll lose their magic negation. If they
don’t, they have an empty field. Win/win
Heavy Storm + (Flip) Big Eye + (Flip) Magician of
Faith + Barrel Dragon + Barrel’s effect + (Card
The meanest combo out there. Heavy Storm drains your
opponent’s retaliation. Big Eye gives you the
power to continue your assault next turn (or this
turn if you MoF Pot of Greed). Magician of Faith
gives you back a nice card, so you can get more draw
power or clear the Monster field. Barrel is a heavy
hitter and could destroy a monster for ya. If you
play a Magic Jammer down as well, you could stay in
the lead for a good portion of the game.
Rating: 4.5/5 Drawback is that you lose your M/T
as well. Not that big, obviously.
Been a little while since
we've had a card of the day. We do have a
good one today, however. Heavy Storm is restricted to
two for good reason - it can remove your opponents
defenses, leaving them completely open to assault. Of
course, there's more to this card than just that, so,
As I said earlier,
Heavy Storm leaves your opponent very open to a
complete assault. Just remember to lay your traps
AFTER the Heavy Storm, as such technicalities are
important. Anyway, with Heavy Storm, you don't have
much to fear from your opponent, especially
if you combine it with a mass monster removal magic
card such as Raigeki. Then you leave your opponent
powerless to stop your rampage...at least for the
There's not a whole lot
of things to say about Heavy Storm, other than how
good it is. It's gamebreaking, and will definitely
help you win if timed right. Be wary about using it
too often though, because you may lose a lot of
important traps and your Swords of Revealing Light.
Rating - 4.95
It rocks and two should be in every deck. Just use it
at the right time, of course.
