Today is Maha Vailo. This is one of the
cards in the magic ruler set. She (yes, she)
extra 500 ATK boost for every card equipped to it.
This card is one of the best monsters in my opinion.
With the right mix of equip magic cards, you can
easily power her way up above 5000 attack points.
Unfortunately, since she does rely heavily on attack
increases, she is very susceptible to reverse trap.
One of those and your Maha Vailo will most likely go
down to around 0 attack points. But who plays
I give her a 3.4/5. This isn't for all decks.
your deck heavily centers on equip magic, you should
really think of putting this in as it would greatly
help your deck.
Okay. If you guys
haven't figured it out by now, I like to compare Yu-Gi-Oh
cards to Magic cards. I know Magic better and it
helps to put things in perspective. Well, trying
to do that today miserably failed. Explanation:
Magic has a card very
similar to this called Rabid Wombat. It's a 2GG
creature that is an 0/1 that does not tap to attack
and gets +2/+2 for every enchant creature card put on
it. Basically, without enchantments, it totally
sucked and was basically worthless, not to mention
that you couldn't even play it until turn 4, and start
powering it until turn 5.
Now we have Maha Vailo.
She can come down turn 1, and be a complete bad-ass in
the same turn. On top of that, even if you don't
have a Equip card in hand, she's not great, but can
somewhat hold her own at 1550 ATK. Most any
equip, though, puts her is definite threat
Does this card go in
every deck? Nope. As a matter of fact, I
wouldn't put her in most decks. This, though, is
not what Card of the Day is about. You have to
remember this - do most cards go in most decks?
Nope. The thing to figure out is does that card
have a deck or decks they go into at all, and if so,
how viable/useful are they in those deck(s).
Maha Vailo has a
deck. As a matter of fact, she has her OWN deck,
IMHO. A deck with high numbers of Equip cards
and some defensive creatures to hold off an opponent
until you can find her and make her insane. So,
my rating reflects that in the right deck, she is
Maha Vailo -- Tuesday
Introduction: Oh look I got a Blu Eyes White Dragon
attack out on turn 1.
In addition to the effect of Equip Cards, the ATK of
this monster is
increased by 500 points for each card equipped to this
Why should you use it?
*Can be huge
*No tributing to gain big monster
*Clear the way?
Why shouldn't you use it?
*Based on powerups
Reasons: Well today we look at Maha Vailo (*cough
cough* I know it's
someone's favorite card, not Nick by the way). This
monster is pretty
dangerous if played right. One reason is for it's
killer effect. For example
you attach a Axe of Despair to this baby, woah it
grows to a 3050 ATK
monster without tributing, woah! Starting to like this
now eh? Well this big
huge monster can be used to clear the way for some of
your other monsters,
maybe Dark Elf? Even Jira Gumo? Well whatever you
chose it's going to be
nasty either way. Well any deck based on a powerup
wouldn't work, though if
this monster wasn't 1550, it would be so much ownage
because you can Last
Will and Sangan/Witch it, which would totally be sick.
Well now because of
that, I have mentally built this deck in my head and
it would work, the only
problem is that the powerup idea. This makes it very
easy to counter, most
decks run so much Monster Removal and Magics and Traps
this baby will last maybe 2 turns.
Rating: Though it's very very easy to countered, I
have to give credits for
this card, but this card must be used in combo, which
makes it get a bit of
a lower rating. For this reason, I would give it a
3.5. Still a good card,
but not a great card.
Conclusion: Maybe there are others cards that can make
a monster huge
without a drawback?
Tuesday - Maha Vailo
is an interesting monster. At
first it's just a pathetic 1550 ATK Super Rare. But,
after you throw an Axe of Despair onto him, he
jumps to a BEWD-ish 3050 ATK. Not bad.
Equip him with a single Megamorph and he's
at 3600 ATK. Nice.
The main problem with Maha Vailo is that
without an Equipment Magic attached, he becomes
terrible. 1550 ATK isn't going to even begin to cut
it. I advise not playing with more than two in your
deck, unless your packing lots of Equipment
But regardless, if he does have some Equipment
Magic attached, he's a force to deal with.
Today is Tuesday, and we're going
to look at a card that isn't quite as powerful as Delinquent
Duo, but it's still formidable nonetheless,
Effect: In addition to the effect of Equip
Cards, the ATK of this monster is increased by 500
points for each card equipped to this card.
(Starting today, I'm going to shorten my analysis of
each card a little bit, because Pojo said I should.
I did a long review for Delinquent Duo yesterday
because I like that card ^_^;;;)
This card makes excellent tech in a beatdown deck
running Axe of Despair and Megamorph.
If you equip an Axe on this thing, it goes up to
3050, enough to destroy a Blue Eyes!
Equip it with Megamorph to get it up to 3600
to watch your opponent's jaw drop. Even
better, equip her (Edo says Maha Vailo is female) with
2 or 3 equipment
cards and build her up to win in one turn!
Just watch out for Snatch Steal, as
not only does your opponent gain control of it, it
gets a +500 boost ._.
Should YOU play it?
If you are running a beatdown deck with Equips, tech
1 or 2 of these gals in.
Maha Vailo gets a 3.1 in my book.
If a Level 4 monster can get up this high with just
one card equipped, I'll go with it.
