Wow...I hadn't even looked at today's CotD before I
This is the possibly playable version of Mask of the
It forces your opponent to play out of it, but is
fairly risky in today's environment. Your opponent
either has two turns to get rid of the Mask, or get
rid of the monster it's on before you generate a +1
with it. It also stops a big beater from attacking,
possibly forcing your opponent to overextend.
The bad news? Monarchs are everywhere, and
worst-case scenario your average opponent will have
three Cyber Dragons in their deck that they could
tribute their monster for to 1 for 1 your Ekibyo out
of the game with.
The good news? This makes it possible for you to
play extra reactive traps (Bottomless, most likely?)
that take advantage of your opponent needing to
either tribute off the monster that's Ekibyo'd, or
summon an extra monster to maintain field presence.
The other bad news? Ekibyo + a set M/T can get
Heavied for a -1...but then again, so can any other
I don't see it being good tech this format, but if
Monarch use ever goes down but the aggression stays
up, it could be a half-decent one-of.
Yu-Gi-Oh's homage to the movie 'Alien.' Well, maybe.
Ekibyo may be impronouncable and unspellable but it
isn't a bad card. You lock out a monster, waiting
for it to be destroyed in two turns. After that
time, the Ekibyo returns to your hand. Like all
equips, this is liable to the equipped monster being
tributed or s/t destruction. Also, this only works
in a very slow deck since you've got to be willing
to ignore two turns of attacks to get it to work
properly. However, it can reap great rewards in the
Share and enjoy,
I've seen this thing in action and it works. But
today's format (filled with 3x Zaborg, 3x Firestrom
Monarch, and 3x Cyber Dragon) will make you cry. It
has potential and is not a bad card to use, but I
believe its ability to inherently become a minus one
with no gain what so ever forces me to give it a
1/5. If you play this you got BALLS:P But I'd have
to ask you how it feels to see that tomato or D.D.
Warrior Lady hit the Graveyard and you discard a
card from your hand complements of a 2400 tribute.
If ever there was a card that could turn something
to stone, this is it.
Greetings one and all, I’m back for a bit, I’m sure
you all missed me. Hope you liked that story the
other day, I’ve been told it’s a worthwhile read. If
you’ve got anything to say about it then someone’s
put up a thread about it in the Fan fic forum, but
enough about me plugging my own work, on with some
more of it.
Ekibyo Drakmord is an old favourite of mine, from
way back in the good old days of LON. It’s a good
card really, a continuous form of removal sounds
great however you put it, but it does come with it’s
The Pro’s ;
Re-usable, attack preventing, and monster killing.
The Con’s ;
If they tribute the monster equipped, the card’s
effectively done nothing.
It takes 2 turns minimal to pull it off.
Might as well kill the monster straight off with
All in all, it’s not THAT great, but with a slow
paced meta, it could be great. Arguably in a burn
deck its could be brilliant, stalling for time
whilst killing monsters in the process, and re
-usable. Outside of that, not so much.
Advanced ; 3/5
Art ; 4/5 Love that.
MPS ; 5/5 Love it.
