ExMinion OfDarkness
Dark Eradicator Warlock

Usually, Nomi monsters suck. This one's actually good IF YOU PROTECT IT.

Basically, Mr. Mountain DEW (I'll be referring to him as this throughout the rest of the CotD) does 1,000 damage to your opponent each time either one of you activates a Normal Spell. Smashing Ground? 1,000. Heavy Storm? 1,000. Tremendous Fire? 2,000 and you take 500. Meteor of Destruction? 2,000 but you can't finish a Duel with it.

If I were trying to play a Mountain DEW deck, I'd focus more on stalling (more like a standard Burn) and using cards to keep DEW alive rather than attacking with him. Remember, the opponent has but three Smashing Grounds. They could have up to SIX good "kill-the-attacker" traps. They could also have FOUR additional "Remove what killed me" monsters. (Granted, you still have to watch out for Exiled Force, your stall cards aren't going to do much to that.) Basically, stall like crazy, get your setup, and try to wipe out the opponent with the crisp, refreshing taste of Mountain DEW before they can get another turn. ...either that, or get them within 1,000 of that so they can't use a Spell in trying to come back, which usually screws over almost all of an opponent's ways to do so (barring a Snatch Steal and a barrage of their own spells.)

I don't think it's possible to Top 8 a Regional with it, but I think it can win a local tournament if constructed right.

1/5 Traditional -- too much destruction here and too much of an investment.
2/5 Advanced -- high reward for keeping it out but you're giving up a good few cards in doing so.

Dark Paladin
FINALLY, we get to the good card, the card I am completely biased against, which you must keep in mind as you read my review...as it may be the best spellcaster ever (excluding Dark Magician of Chaos)

Dark Eradicator Warlock
Dark/Level 7/Spellcaster
This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by Tributing 1 "Dark Magician" on your side of the field. While this card is face-up on the field, inflict 1000 points of damage to your opponent's Life Points each time either player activates
1 Normal Magic Card.

Dark Eradicator Warlock is one of the best Nomi monsters ever with such an awesome name and even cooler art. The only real downside (aside from being a nomi-monster) is that Warlock didn't gain an attack and defense boost.

However, I guess he doesn't need it. He has one of the sickest burn effects ever. Each time you OR your opponent activates a normal magic card, your opponent takes 1000 points of damage. Now, below is a list of cards that fit this category that you are likely (or could) find in your or your opponents deck currently.

Dark Hole
Brain Control (maybe)
Creature Swap
Card Destruction (maybe)
Lightning Vortex
Pot of Avarice
Heavy Storm
Metamorphosis (maybe)
Nobleman of Crossout
Swords of Revealing Light
Reinforcements of the Army
The Warrior Returning Alive

Now, if you can keep Dark Eradicator Warlock on the field, for just a few turns, you shouldn't have much trouble finishing or defeating your opponent. While he still has the paltry 2500 attack of Dark Magician, he can still attack if he has to. Just try and protect him, you don't want to go through the trouble of summoning him and run into a Bottomless Trap Hole or something.


Traditional Dark Magician: 4.35/5 Near perfect, being a nomi brings him down a bit.

Advanced Dark Magician: 4.85/5 The DM deck has plenty of speed, you just need Warlock in hand as well.

Art: 5/5 Excellent

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Dark Eradicator Warlock review
So here we are, at the end of the week, and for me of 10 cotd reviews written in a row. K, so today we are looking at another reincarnation of that eternal favourite Dark Magician. Dark Eradicator Warlock, man I wished they had left the translation of Executioner, but oh well Konami has to localize these things. So we have before us another Nomi, although I fail to understand why they still produce nomis anyways, yes the concept made sense at the beginning after the production of the Envoys, but since they not only have they made monster have horrible summoning requirements but they have toned down their effects. Half the time they wouldn’t be worth reviving anyways and if you go through all that effort to get them out I personally think that you should be able to bring them back. Really times have changed and if they ever expect cards like that to be played then they really need to make them worth it. [/rant]
Looking at the stats you see a carbon copy Dark Magician, which is really disappointing since you have to tribute one to get him out. The plus side is that at least this monster doesn’t require any other spell, trap or other insane summoning requirements, but still, you have to tribute a tribute monster. Now to the effect, whenever a Normal Spell is activated deal 1000 damage to the opponent’s LP. Now that isn’t that bad, it would be much more powerful if it was any spell, and IMO that would still be balanced for the effort of getting him out. Really a nice burn effect, but the limitations on this card means that it won’t see much play or be of much help to burn decks.
In the end he can be used as a fun card in Dark Magician to let you push a little further with burn damage, if only it worked with Magical Dimension……

This is not good =/. At all. You lose two cards to inflict 1k damage (Dark Magician, and a normal spell.)

Actually, you also get the effect of the normal magic, which helps this cards cause. But its still bad.

Thats how bad this card is, rofl ;x.

This is like..that other REBD card that came in the dragon structure, its just as bad.

Constructed: 1/5

Sorry =/.


Dark Maltos
Dark Eradicator Warlock

As if you hadn’t figured this out already?

Finally, yet ANOTHER Dark Magician Nomi, however in my opinion this one’s considerably better than the others.

The warlock is potentially a good monster and has opened the door to the until now under appreciated deck type - Spellcaster burn, and intriguing mix of this monster, Magical Blast and Rapid Fire Magician.

The Warlock , for a nomi, is considerably easier to summon than it’s previous Dark Magician rivals, requiring only the sacrifice of Dark Magician himself. The resultant is a statistically equal monster, with an awesome burn effect. Nice.

The Warlock is very useful in conjunction with Magical Blast, dealing a deadly 1200 at least each turn, and damage like that quickly adds up , considering the opponent will most likely want to use a spell to kill him. The high damage inflicted makes this monster rock if you have a lot of spells in hand, or if the opponent is on low lp.

Potentially a powerful deck type can be made around this card, considering that Dark Magician has quickly become one of , if not THE easiest high level monster to be summoned in the game with all the support around.

Traditional ( spell caster) : 3/5 - Ironically enough, difficult to utilise with all the powerful spells around.

Advanced (spell caster): 4/5 Worth a try I think.

Art ; 4/5 - I love the spellcaster style in this game, but this doesnt look as cool as Dark Magician IMO.

Dark Eradicator Warlock:
Here is the obligatory nomi monster. Move along.
Nothing to see here.

This has many bad things:
1) Nomi;
2) Can only be Special Summoned from hand;
3) Doesn't get any ATK increase based on Dark Magician;
4) Requires a Lv.7 on the field to die to get it out;
5) Ooo. Burn damage. Wow. So then, the Smash that kills this will do 1000 damage. Dang. That hurts.
Really it does.

Far too little for far too much effort. Do not use.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
