Elemental Mistress Doriado

This card has caused a little bit of confusion; some people think it’s great and others think it’s worthless. This is a good monster, to be sure – she’s a Ritual but only has three stars, making it very easy to sacrifice for her. She’s LIGHT, but she’s also FIRE, and WATER, and EARTH. And WIND.

Yes, she’s a bunch of Attributes, meaning that if she’s the only monster on your side of the field, you can activate Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan and choose your effect. You can discard her for Abyss Soldier because she’s also WATER. You can use her as a LIGHT when removing for BLS-EotB. You can use her as an EARTH when removing for Gigantes, or a WIND for Silpheed, or a FIRE for Ultimate Baseball Kid’s effect.

She’s versatile. One thing to note, however, is that you CAN’T activate Elemental Burst if this is the only monster on your side of the field. It’s a drawback but this monster still has many uses. She’s very rentsy indeed.

Traditional – CCCC: 2/5

Elemental Mistress Doriado

Usually you don't see Ritual monsters as combo cards. This is a rare exception.

You're OBVIOUSLY not summoning this for its ATK score...you're still giving up 3 cards (Ritual + Monster + sacrifice monster) to get out something that still needs another card. However, it sets you up for a deck using Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan -- that Trap card that either lets you Pot, Delinquent, Raigeki, or HFD (your choice) if you have all 4 elements on the field.

I'm not even sure if this works with Elemental Burst. If it does, then you have a HFD + Raigeki in the same card. But still...that requires 6 traps that aren't even staple trap cards, so instantly Decree > this whole deck idea.

1/5 Traditional (Why play substitutes when you have the real thing?)
1.75/5 Advanced (Too fragile of a combo)

Elemental Mistress Doriado

ATK/1200 DEF/1400

This card can only be Ritual Summoned with the Ritual Spell Card, "Doriado's Blessing". The Attribute of this card is also treated as WIND, WATER, FIRE, and EARTH.


What the hell?

As I said in the last CotD, Rituals suck for the most part and are not worth the time and resources it takes to bring them out.

So...why would you want to spend resources on this weak-ass monster? What, so you can finally use that Elemental Burst? ...Yeah, no.

Rating: 1/5 (Pojo said the lowest number I can go is 1

I hope no one on Pojo cries about me not seeing "broken" combos like Elemental Mistress Doriado and...sweet Jesus, elemental monsters such as Element Saurus and Element Soldier! Omg broke! Oh wait...no they suck okay bye!

Coin Flip
Elemental Mistress Doriado. Pronounced just like Driad only with an o after both d's. But the name is unimportant. The effect is interesting. This works with a number of cards. In fact, the only card you need to know it doesn't work with is Elemental Burst. It doesn't work with Elemental Burst.

However, it works with Element Doom, Dinosaur, Valkyrie, Dragon, Soldier and Magician. Having this on the field with one of them gives that Element Monster both of its abilities. Nifty, eh? It is the only card you need to have on your field to be able to activate Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan. You can summon it with Earth Chant. That's another interesting thing – this little girl counts as all 5 of those Attributes (LIGHT, EARTH, FIRE, WIND, and WATER) while she's in your hand or deck as well. Even in the Graveyard. You can remove her to Special Summon Silpheed, Gigantes, Inferno, or half of Fenrir, half of Soul of Purity and Light, or half of a Chaos Monster. Nifty.

This does not mean you can special summon it from your deck with something stupid like UFO Turtle. Attempt to and EMoD will call Cory's mom fat and rip a n00b off for a Mirror Force with his shiny Garnecia Elefantis. As opposed to a kitten dying. Okay, he won't, and a kitten won't die as a result of you doing that, but it's not going to go over too well with your opponent.

This card sucks anywhere but an Element Deck. There, it does to the Element Deck what Necrovalley does to Gravekeepers. No rating for that very reason.
Snapper Elemental Mistress Doriado
Today’s card is Elemental Mistress Doriado, the heart and soul of an Element Deck.

Doriado’s stats are far from extraordinary, so I’ll just briefly mention them and move onto the effect, which is the only reason you’d ever use her.
So, 1200 ATK, Spellcaster, done.

Like all Ritual Monsters, Doriado can only be Special Summoned through a Ritual Spell Card. And since you all can read, I won’t point out which one to use. If you can’t read though and you’re curious about which one to use, it isn’t not Doriado’s Blessing.

Doriado’s effect is a rare one in that it’s and effect that is always active. It’s active on the field, it’s active while in the Deck, it’s active while in the Graveyard and in the hand, it’s active while removed from play; we shall never surrender. What’s her effect you ask? Why’s Snapper using such random sayings this week you wonder? Her effect allows Doriado to be a FIRE, EARTH, WIND, and WATER monster all at that same time in addition to her standard LIGHT Attribute. As for your second question, I haven’t the foggiest.

So anyway, Doriado’s a kick butt monster in many different fashions. As has already been stated, she excels in an Element Deck, allowing you to use both effects of, let’s say, Element Dragon at the same time. Whilst in this Element Deck, Doriado can single-handedly be used to activate Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan, a Trap that allows you to use one of four very useful effects. Outside of an Element Deck, Doriado can be used as a basic Deck filler without the need for her Ritual Spell Card. Since she doesn’t need to be on the field to use her effect, you can use her for Attribute specific effects. In a WATER Deck for example, she can be used to summon Aqua Spirit or be used to pay for Abyss Soldier’s effect. Neat huh?

All in all, Doriado is a very neat monster that should be a staple for an Element Deck. Using it elsewhere may prove effective, though I’m sure you could find something more useful there.

Advanced (Element Deck): 4/5. It really only loses points for a low ATK and being a Ritual Monster. Other than that, Doriado kicks bootay.
Traditional (Element Deck): 4/5. See Advanced.
Overall (Element Deck): 4/5.
Art: 4/5. FINALLY! The artwork has come back to a version I enjoy.
Dark Paladin Elemntal Mistress Doriado

TWO Ritual monsters in a row

This is one of the most unique cards to come along possibly ever, yet it is so stupid also. Long story short, here's about ALL I have to say:

Light = chaos food
Her stats = meh at best
Ritual in this case = sucks

Sadly, this is another one of those cards I wanted to slap 1/5 on and move along, but curses...I have actually found one use again, and it has to be the ONLY reason this ridiculous card was made.

In a deck with 3 of these and 3 Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan, this absolutely ridiculous card becomes a necessity as your 1 monster can count as all the necessary Attributes.


Traditional: 1.0/5 I had to, I'm sorry.
Traditional Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan: 4.0/5 Seriously, it can do it so ridiculously easy.

Advanced: 1.5/5 Still, it's not great.
Advanced Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan: 4.5/5

Art: 2.5/5 Still, not that great.

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
