Today, we'll introduce you (as for the rest of the week) to some new cards from the Cyber Dark Impact set. Today we look at Cyber Dark Edge, a monster that likes to do union type things with other monsters.

So, equip a Level 3 or lower Dragon monster from your Graveyard onto this little guy with 800 attack points, and then you get to combine their attack points. That's cool, and furthermore, he can attack your opponent directly afterward. Now, of course, there has to be a downside.

The downside being that the attack is halved during Damage Calculation, so you may not be able to do this more than once. Also, you have to have a specific card type of a specific level and it has to be in your Graveyard to pull this off.

Not a bad idea, I actually like this card, but it may be a little difficult to pull off. I do not understand why we are attaching Dragon monsters to Machines, however... Also, with Unions, the monster equipped is destroyed instead.


2.25/5 all

Maybe a little lower, maybe a little higher, we'll see. It does have some potential.

Art: 3/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Cyber Dark Edge:
If at first one's mechanic is not popular, disguise with long effect and try again.

Alright, the idea of a Union monster and its protection is rather good. This series of cards gets around Union's primary problem (card advantage) by equipping from the Graveyard. Sadly, in this particular case, one has to have a Lv. 3 Dragon, and only Twin-Headed Behemoth sees play, so this won't be seeing too much use.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5

Share and enjoy,

I can not tell you how happy I was to get a set of these monsters. The ability to equip to a dead dragon in the graveyard kinda hurts due to the fact it must be three stars, but that can be worked around easily. The fact the quip monsters attack is added to 800 is awesome. Deck Devastation Virus has a new group of friends, machines have some great options to fool around with, and simply said the special abilities are icing on the cake. Even if this monster dies we still have a defender/800 attacker for a turn.

Fact Man Today and the rest of the week I’ll be reviewing The CyberDark Machines from the new set CyberDark Impact.

Today’s monster is CyberDark Horn. Stats: It is a level 4 Dark Machine, so maybe we’ll see it appear in a Machine deck. At 800 Attack and 800 defense, this guy is not very formidable. However, when this card is Normal Summoned it gets its first effect.

Effects: 1. When this card is Normal Summoned, you select 1 Level 3 or lower Dragon-type monster in your Graveyard and equip it to this card, and this card gains attack equal to the equipped card's attack.

Of the level 3 Dragon-type monsters available, the best to use would be Twin Headed Behemoth. He’ll boost Horn up to 2300 attack which is very formidable and can take down even Cyber Dragon. It is not too much of a stretch to see Twin Headed Behemoth as it is showing up in more and more competitive decks. Other Dragon-types that might see play include: Masked Dragon, 1400 attack; Gray wing, 1300 attack; and Armed Dragon Lv3, 1200 attack. So, you can get a 2000 to 2300 level 4 monster if you have an appropriate dragon already in the graveyard.

2. During battle between this attacking card and a defense position monster whose defense is lower than the attack of this card, inflict the difference as battle damage to your opponent.

Nice effect, especially if it is pumped up to 2300 attack. Can you say goat punishment?

3. If this card would be destroyed in battle, the equipped monster is destroyed instead.

So if you get attacked by a Jinzo or Summoned Skull you will survive with a little damage and be able to tribute it on your next turn, of course, if your opponent doesn’t have a second monster over 800 attack. More likely, this Machine will be destroyed by Zaborg when he is summoned by Treeborn Frog. This effect would be better if it acted like Heavy Mech Support Platform and protected the monster from all destruction effects.

This card is similar to Union using monsters, however you can not take advantage of roll-out to equip Horn with another Dragon after the first is destroyed; however, you can use Heavy Mech Support Platform, but why bother when there are so many better targets in a Machine deck. This card may see some play in Machine decks as it adds punch through for those pesky face-downs and goat tokens. The major disadvantages besides its low printed attack are that it only equips a Lv3 and lower Dragons when it is normal summoned, and that there needs to be an appropriate monster already in the graveyard. Even if you get the power boost, the equipped monster is prone to S/T destruction.

Advanced: 3.8 (not bad) Draft: <1 (no Dragons in this set)
