ExMinion OfDarkness Tuesday:
Double Coston

It's the Kaiser Sea Horse for Dark-types. People who wanted to play a major Dark type have a new ally. Invader of Darkness becomes one Tribute. Dark Magician of Chaos becomes one Tribute...and that's the biggest card you have to combo with this. For those who play casual decks, Red-Eyes Black Dragon becomes easier to summon...and he gets a few support cards in the next set.

However, this card is non-searchable. It holds its own against Control but not beatsticks. Not much more to say, because there are very few monsters that work with it.

3.5/5 in a dedicated Dark deck, though. 

Reader Note:  Added 7.07.04

In the Card of the day ExMOD said that double coston is unsearchable which is untrue being a zombie type it is searchable by pyramid turtle... just thought I would let you know and maybe some others if you post this that it is in fact searchable

Pojo Reader, Zepher (Code Name)
- EMOD admits this mistake as well

Tranorix Tuesday: Double Coston

Double Coston is a very simple monster. He has decent ATK of 1700, decent (though un-Witchable) DEF of 1650, and a decent effect. He counts as two tributes for Tribute Summons involving a DARK monster.

What are good DARK monsters to use this card with? Dark Magician of Chaos is probably the best; a 2800 ATK, Magic-grabbing monster who removes others from play is EXTREMELY deadly at only one tribute. Another good one is Invader of Darkness, with an impressive 2900 ATK and the ability to negate Quickplays. One that some may overlook is Despair from the Dark, great in Zombie decks (and coincidentally enough, Double Coston is a Zombie).
Really, it's a simple effect that doesn't require a lot of explaining. It can be useful, but it's certainly not for every deck.

Typical tournament deck: 2.5/5
DARK deck: 4/5
OVERALL RATING: 3.3/5
