dawnyoshi Lord Poison, another IOC plant monster. There is no way you can say this monster is bad for a plant deck, as it can easily revive a dead Fairy King Truesdale. There's some power right there. Its 1500 ATK isn't too bad either since there's still quite a bit of control in the environment. However, since you can't revive other Lord Poisons, this monster may be pretty weak when it hits the graveyard. He's really only a one time shot.

Constructed: 3/5

Limited: 1.5/5

Okay...so, there's maybe 2-3 plant monsters in IOC that you'd be able to draft? Are they worth reviving? Probably not. 
ExMinion OfDarkness Tuesday:
Lord Poison:

Sanganable, Witchable, all-around searchable, and free Recursion.

Fairy King Truesdale bait like wh0a.

I like this card for a water/plant Deck. It beats Tomato, it ties DDWL, it beats all the other searchers...it can summon up Lekunga (in Plant it's more necessary than in just a Water deck), it can bring up Fairy King most importantly...they did the smart thing and said it can't bring up another one of itself, avoiding a new Spear Cretin.

Imagine if you can get this and Truesdale down at the same time. This thing's 2,000, Truesdale is at 2700, and if they kill the Truesdale, you have an easy way to get it back. Let alone if you have another Truesdale in the graveyard.

This thing makes plant decks playable as casual decks for now.

3.5/5 in the combo deck 
Tranorix Tuesday: Lord Poison

Lord Poison is a nice monster. Being Witchable, Sanganable, and Grizzlyable, he's very easy to get onto the field; and with 1500 ATK he can hold his own against some of the weaker monsters played today. In the event that he can't hold his own, however, don't worry! That's where the effect kicks in.

Summoning a Plant from the Graveyard seems like an awesome effect, and it IS pretty nice. While there aren't very many good Plants out, there are a few worth getting (some that come to mind are Mystic Tomato and Fairy King Truesdale...or, if you want, Lekunga).

He's also WATER, so he gets the usual ALO boosts, etc...but his real use is obvious. Play him in a Plant deck or even a Control with lots of Tomatoes; otherwise, stay far away.

Typical tournament deck: 2.5/5

Plant deck: 4.5/5

OVERALL RATING: 3.5/5
