Enraged battle Ox is a Level 4 with no Special
Summoning restrictions or requirements, so it
can be dropped into play with ease. An Earth
monster, it has some good Beatdown support, like
yesterdays card. Beast-Warriors of note include
Darkness and Mystical Knight of Jackal, so this
type has some solid representatives.
Enraged battle Ox has a respectable ATK of
1700. On its own, this would not cut it, but as
we will see, this creature has a beneficial
effect. The Def of 1000 is fine, though again,
I would prefer 1500, since it would be better
but still a legal target for Witch of the Black
Forest to search out.
This cards grants Trample to all Beast, Beast
Warrior, and Winged Beast type monsters. This
is fantastic. Even if it was just applied to
itself, it would be a candidate for best
others have draw backs, lower stats, or require
tribute). Applying to others, even of limited
Types, is wonderful.
If you use Beast, Beast Warriors, or Winged
Beast, you should almost certainly run this,
unless they never attack. Even if it is in a
Gravity Bind deck and Enraged Battle Ox itself
canít attack. Itís quite simple. Less obvious
is that itís one of the best
Tramplers anyway, so
if you lack it in a deck, you should consider
running this unless the deck matches up better
with say Airknight
or Spear Dragon.
4.75/5-And I almost gave it a five, since any
better, and I fear it would be broken. This
card is one of the two that have made various
Beast-types into a formidable deck. I think
only Manticore of
Darkness has done more to help.
4.25/5-Same as above, but competition from
Control and Chaos decks takes it down a peg.
5/5-Top pick. There
are a lot of the assorted Beast-Type monsters in
this set, and this gives them Trample, so an
opponent that gets down will probably fail to
get back up-canít hid behind setting chump
blockers. Even if you have no other
Beast-types, take it.
Almost too good.
Trample is something never to underestimate.
That Fiber Jar that would have saved your
opponent, maybe given them the win? Doesnít
matter-you just took out
the rest of their LP anyway.
