ExMinion OfDarkness Tuesday:
The Agent of Force -- Mars

The Fairy type effects you get from Sanctuary of the Sky being in play seem to involve a bonus when you have more LP than your opponent. This is one of them. There are two ways to do this:

1. Get a couple of early shots in at your opponent's Life Points, and press the advantage

2. Life Gain. If you're playing a Fairy deck, you may have a couple more ways than normal to gain life points from various effects.

This card can become pretty sweet. If you ram your opponent with a big hitter, suddenly this thing is going to be as strong as the hit was. Equips and boosts mean a bit more to Fairy monsters when you're playing this card.

The only problem: The Sinister Six (Feather Duster/Heavy Storm/Breaker/3x MST). If they kill your Sanctuary (SitS), then this has 0 attack. That's begging for one big free shot -- heck, even a Yata could attack this and still cost you a Draw Phase.

Bottom line: If you play this, you BETTER be able to protect your Magic or Trap cards well.

Tranorix Tuesday: The Agent of Force – Mars

Mars is a very interesting monster. Granted, her stats are terrible (of course, they make her searchable by Witch, Sangan, and Shining Angel); but she makes up for that with her effects. The first is extremely useful: She can't be affected by Magic Cards. Your opponent's Raigeki = useless. Change of Heart = useless. And so forth.

The real strength comes from Mars's other effect. Get your Life Points high or your opponent's Life Points low (or both), and Mars will come out with potentially game-breaking stats. There are many ways to gain LP in this game, and a good number of them are reliable: Poison of the Old Man, Mystik Wok, even Solemn Wishes. Mars makes these cards even more worthwhile, and it certainly is worthwhile to include Mars in a Fairy deck.

Typical tournament deck: 1.5/5
Fairy deck: 4/5
Omega Mars is my favorite of all the Agents. When used correctly this monster has the potential to become a huge powerhouse that gets under gravity bind.

Alone this monster is terrible, a 0/0 that is unaffected by magic cards won’t win you any duels. However once The Sanctuary in the Sky is in play this monster has limitless possibilities.

With 0 attack and defense points, The Agent of Force – Mars can be searched from your deck through both Sangan and Witch of the Black Forrest, not to mention Shining Angel.

An Angel theme deck is one that focus’ on life point gain; (Guardian Angel Joan immediately comes to mind). For every life point you have higher than your opponent this monster gains 1 attack and defense point. This will punish your opponent for using cards like Delinquent Duo, or Solemn Judgment.

Mars also has another effect that protects him against all spell cards, this is a double-edged sword, on one hand Mars is safe from just about anything your opponent tries to do. But on the other hand without The Sanctuary in the Sky on the field you won’t be able to boost him up with any of your own spell cards. Now I feel the pros outweigh the cons in this situation, but be cautious when using Mars.

In a WELL BUILT Angel Deck Mars deserves a solid 4/5, his only downside is without The Sanctuary in the Sky he reverts back to a 0/0 monster. Also in a well-built LP gain deck you shouldn’t have any problem having a powerful monster in Mars. 
dawnyoshi Mars is an interesting angel from Ancient Sanctuary. Spells cannot destroy this monster, so raigeki and dark hole are useless when facing Mars. Its special ability is unique as well.

The ability Mars possesses is a continuous effect, meaning it can be applied during your turn or your opponent's turn, whenever your life points change. Do you have a strong defender on the field? Chain to an opponent's attack on Mars with Mystic Wok, gain a good chunk of life, and watch Mars pummel the attacking creature. There's a lot of life point gaining combos to work with this monster. The only real weaknesses this guy has is if you're down by quite a lot of life late game, or if you cannot protect your Sanctuary in the Sky. If your Sanctuary is destroyed, well...Mars is screwed.

Constructed: 3/5

Limited: 1.5/5

Horrible card to draft in limited. The odds of you pulling a Sanctuary in the Sky AND Mars is incredibly low. Remember, he has a whopping 0 attack.
