Freed The Brave Wanderer is a Level 4
Light/Warrior [REVIVE THE ORBS!
Sorry, wrong game, but a delicious idea for CAC
contests]. Since he has no summoning
restrictions or requirements, being a Level 4 is
a good thing. Being a Light Monster means some
solid support and of course, meaning he can be
used for Chaos Food. Being a Warrior means it
has some solid support too. Light/Warrior
hybrids are a bit rare though: only five exist,
including this card. Freed has an ATK of 1700,
which isnít great, but is sufficient to handle a
lot of ďcontrolĒ monsters as well as various
supporting ones. 1200 DEF is low enough to be a
legal target for Witch of the Black Forest, but
it could be 1500 and still qualify, so itís not
bad, but it could be better.
Freed has a useful effect, but the cost means
that itís only for specialized decks. By simply
removing two Light Monsters from your discard,
you can nuke an opposing face-up monster whose
ATK is higher than Freedís.
So unless your opponent has a 1700 ATK creature,
this will clear out most face-up threats.
Like itís Dark
counterpart, Strike Ninja, this card works well
when combined with things like Dimension Fusion,
you can clear out your normal
opposition, then bring back the two creatureís
you removed. One might consider using both in
Chaos Decks-I donít run them, and I havenít
played any (what, itís been busy for Pokťmon
Theoretically, it would help by giving more
options. For one thing, I have been working on
counters for Chaos creaturesÖ so having
something that feeds of the same stuff might be
nice. Remember when using equips and the like
that the card text refers to the ATK of Freed,
so raising and
lowering it can really vary your options.
3.25/5-Not quite as useful as Strike Ninja,
though they might go together.
3/5-Same as above, but here we have the more
traditional Chaos decks and control and Beatdown
2/5-You can use it to good effect, except that
there are almost no good Li9ght Creatures in the
set. Still, there are some, and you might be
able to make use of them.
A bit weak in my opinion, but it still has a
niche, and that is better than having to ban it.
