Being a Sea Serpent is somewhat nice since there
arenít a lot of them, but it is also a bad thing
because that means there is not a lot of Support.
Being a Light Monster is also okay, since it is
Light-type support. Being a Level 4 is fine-it canít
attack under Gravity Bind, but at least it can be
normal summoned without Tribute. Its 1700 ATK is a
bit low for the modern environment, but if (in my
opinion) Konami is smart and starts to balance out
monsters more, by capping ATK/DEF scores by level in a
manner that doesnít make all but 5 tribute monsters
useless, 1700 would be an okay level for something
with a beneficial attack. As for itís Defense, itís
probably too high-1650 makes the card an illegal
target for Witch of the Black Forest to search for.
Even if you didnít want to search for it, it is then
too low to block most beatsticks
Hereís the reason you play the card-itís a two-for-one
deal if you use it to Tribute summon a Light-typed
monster. After all, one of the reasons people didnít
like to Tribute Summon was it was slower and that most
of the time, especially for a two tribute monster,
youíd be better summoning a third copy of the most
The monsters that are currently out that you can use
this to Tribute Summon for legally are BEWD,
Sanga of the Thunder,
Creature, Mystical Knight of Jackal, and Wing Weaver.
For BEWD, Seiyaryu, and
Hyzonryu I would think
Lord of D/Flute of Summoning Dragon would work better,
but I could be wrong. If you are actually insane
enough to want to run a Gate
Gaurdian deck, this, the Legendary Ocean, and
the various recursion cards will make summoning all
the require pieces less painful (but not by much).
itís isnít that bad-the
effect is nifty, but only works once, otherwise it
might be worth running.
Wingweaver should only be played if you have a
Fairy theme. I need a ruling to be sure, but based on
the wording, you might be able to use this with one
other monster to trigger Moisture Creatures Spell/Trap
card destroying effect. Mystical Knight of Jackal
might be the best use for it-itís a decent Warrior
that happens to be Light.
3.75/5-Fairly useful for Light themed decksÖ yes, I
was nicer to Black Luster Soldier, but I was tired
then-I over rated it by at least .5 in every category,
3/5-Same as above, but such a deck is much weaker
Whoa, dťjŗ vu, but it is true-it will help the themed
decks that make use of its effect, but it isnít going
to revolutionize most of them.
4/5-It comes in a Starter deck with
has two targets for its
use, and 1700 isnít too bad for a level 4 in Draft.
is a supporting monster, but is there enough for it to
support? I think it would have been better if you
could just tribute it to special summon a Light
monster that could be tribute summonedÖ as is, I donít
think it works for Blue-Eyes Toon
Dragon, not that people play that, or some other
special summon only. Itíd have been nice if it worked
for rituals, but it doesnít.
