As of right now, Fairy King Truesdale is an awesome
plant monster. He's 2700 ATK with his own effect, he
boosts Mystic Tomato to 1900, Lekunga becomes a 2200
ATK beatstick, and more Truesdales equals greater
strength. This thing is NEEDED in every plant deck.
You can even revive him with Lord Poison, making him
Limited: no grade. He's a video game promo, so
there's no chance in seeing him in a limited
Fairy King Truesdale
If you're playing the previous two CotDs, you better
be playing this. If you're looking for Tribute
fodder besides Jinzo and want raw power, you might
want to try one of these anyway.
Witchable and boosts itself (until it gets errata'd).
So for now, it's 2700. That's pretty dang good.
Granted, most of us would play an Equip or not even
worry about power, focusing on our effects. But for
the poor man's Beatdown this is seriously worth
I already mentioned the combos; Lord Poison has such
excellent synergy with this, and Lekunga gets a
boost, as would his tokens. Now those tokens
actually have use!...except if that fails, you have
no recursion since you removed all your monsters.
But still, 4/5 in the water/plant deck, 2.5/5 in a
poor man's Beatdown.
Wednesday: Fairy King Truesdale
(This rating is based on Truesdale as he is
currently played in the English game; his
playability will decrease TREMENDOUSLY when/if
For those of you who still play Summoned Skull, here
is a much better alternative. He's a one tribute
monster with a very solid 2700 ATK; moreover, he'll
make all of your Tomatoes become 1900 Beatsticks.
Lord Poison becomes a 2000 and Lekunga boosts up to
2200. He even powers up Fiber Jar to a respectable
1000! What’s not to love about that?
He also gets a boost from ALO, making him a 2900
attacker; and as if that weren’t enough, he's
Poisonable, making him even easier to get onto the
field. If you run a Plant deck, and you own and
don't play Truesdale, there is something wrong with
Typical tournament deck: 3/5
Plant deck: 4.5/5
OVERALL RATING: 3.8/5
