Daedalus. Wow, finally a decent sea serpent monster.
Actually, he's more than decent. He's a 2600 ATK
leviathan, he can nuke the field in a
heartbeat...what's not to love about this guy in a
water deck? With Legendary Ocean, he's also level 6.
Yeesh, so much water power. And yet, still so many
beat control decks out there...try him out already!
You won't be pulling off his effect in limited, so
he's just a 2600 ATK monster that's ultra
rare...which can be fulfilled by getting big koala
in the draft. No thank you.
Levia-Dragon - Daedalus
This is the reason people are playing A Legendary
Ocean decks. That card makes this a 2800 one-tribute
with a big fat nuke built in. And if you get another
ALO, you get another field-clear. That's REALLY good
for this card.
Unless a Waboku got chained to his removal effect,
you're most likely attacking for 2600 direct
(because the ALO's off the field now.) That's a big
chunk of LP. One other thing to keep in mind -- this
guy has priority. It's a cost-activated effect
during your own Main Phase (just like CED, X-Force,
TiV, BLS-E...) so if they chain T-Trib, you can
still use your A Legendary Ocean card to destroy
everything else on the field.
Water decks got REALLY powerful. With A Legendary
Ocean, you have all of the following: This guy, a
2050 3-star, a 2650 and 2600 4-star (Giga Giggagio
and Terrorking Salmon if I'm not mistaken), a 1700
direct attacker (Bugroth MK-3), and just blatant raw
I'd watch out for those M/T killers though...
5/5 in a Water deck, 1/5 elsewhere.
Thursday: Levia-Dragon – Daedalus
Leviadragon is simply great. He's the best (not to
mention one of the only...stupid Konami...) Sea
Serpent in the entire game, hands down. He’s
Witchable. He gets boosted from ALO, which makes him
a one tribute 2800. And he has an awesome effect.
You can send the field card Umi (and yes, A
Legendary Ocean works with this too) to the
Graveyard to destroy everything but Leviadragon.
This virtually guarantees you a free 2600 damage to
your opponent's Life Points. And here’s a tip for
all of you whiners who say "but he destroys your
cards too": Don't use his effect if you have cards
you don’t want to destroy!
Leviadragon has massive field clearing, great ATK,
and nice artwork to boot. He's certainly one of the
best cards in IoC. Have a Water deck? Play
Typical tournament deck: 1.5/5
Water deck: 5/5
OVERALL RATING: 3.3/5
