Okay...1900 double attack with a specific Tribute
requirement isn't good.
With Lone Wolf, it can be, if you can keep taking
out your opponent's Tribute fodder and preventing
them from summoning a random Monarch on you or
It's compatible with all of the other monk-specific
equips and spells, but none of those cards are
actually any GOOD.
The rare situations that this card would generate
advantage are far outnumbered by the number of times
this card would be a dead draw, along with the times
your opponent will just either get rid of your Lone
Wolf and then wail on this with a Cyber Dragon, or
use a S/T effect to get rid of this and render the
Lone Wolf useless.
Besides, there's already a much better double
attacker by the name of Cyber Twin Dragon, and his
attacks can be yours for the low, low price of 5,000
* + applicable Shipping and Handling. May take 4-6
turns to get Stein onto the field. We are not liable
for faulure of this product due to Sakuretsu Armor,
Mirror Force, Torrential Tribute, Ring of
Destruction, or any other removal/negation effects.
Offer not valid in Kevin Tewart's dream format (wher
Cyber-Stein would be banned.)
3/5 in the Monk deck (even though it's the
centerpiece of the deck, I still don't see it as
being all that great.)
1/5 all else
Insert your favourite "Monkey" quote here!
A 1900 double attacker is good. That can rack up
some recent damage and/or advantage over other
Sadly, the Monks are rubbish just to make sure this
doesn't rampage the field. As a nomi, you have to
fear Sakuretsu slightly more. Mostly, though, the
nails in the master's coffin are put there by is
relance on the rubbish Monk Fighter. Having to have
both that on the field and this in hand just make
the abuse of Master Monk virtually impossible. Shame
really. It would be fun to use.
Idk, this card isn't as pointless as like,
yesterdays. I guess you could do SOMETHING with it.
Idk. Seems pretty bad to me though.
LOWESR POSSIBLE SCORE IN ALL FORMATS, LOL!
As far as cards go his, effect is great. His
summoning requirements are even OK IMO. But the fact
you go through all that to get a 1900, I ask you
I dare say that D-Hero Double Dude is a better card,
Hyabusa Knight, Mataza the Zapper, CYBER TWIN DRAGON
fusion summoned via polymerization:P
I just do not see this card warranting play because
he is a tribute that requires a special tribute
monster. Raaaaaaaaa! why make a card like this, if
your going to tribute summon, summon something worth
summoning. Zaborg, Airknight, Jinzo, Tyrant Dragon,
If this monster could be summoned without his
"weaker version" then he'd be awesome. Maybe give
him additional effects upon using the "proper"
But they didn't and he is a waste of resources.
Master Monk - Friday.
Lastly we look at Master Monk to finish up this week
reviews. Its also from the TLM set.
You have to offer a Monk Fighter to bring it out,
and it can attack twice in
a row. Okay, but it will die next turn to a Cyber
Dragon, Zaborg, Smashing Ground. Oh look, all your
hard work has gone down the drain. And ohhh look
your dueling career too.
I think you get it, the decktype imo is crap. You
can try if you need, but Im right...always.
Advanced: 3/5 in Monk decks(1/5 anywhere else).

Master Monk is a good card. The only requirement is
that you have a Monk Fighter on the field to
Tribute. Master Monk’s summon is a Special Summon;
not bad. He has 1900 ATK and he can hit twice in the
same Battle Phase; excellent.
Activate Lone Wolf and then proceed to destroy the
field. Lone Wolf was made for this card. I like Lone
Wolf equipped to this card since it allows you to
hit a DDWL, DDA, or DDW and keep on truckin’.
Last Word: There’s not much else to say. He’s good
when he comes out. He’s awesome in draft. If you’re
playing one of those Kung-Fu decks for fun you have
to play Master Monk.
