Welcome to what is apparently SJC week, where we are going to be looking at cards that had an impact or were big in Ohio recently. We start with Gellenduo, a monster with an effect similar to, yet different from, Kaiser Sea Horse.

As you should be aware, Kaiser Sea Horse has 1700 attack also, yet 1650 defense, vs. the defense of 0 here. Kaiser allows you to tribute himself as two monsters for a Light attribute summon. Gellenduo does the same, however you must be tributing for a (Light) Fairy monster.

We don't have a lot of two tribute Light monsters, and there are even fewer two tribute (Light) Fairy monsters. All of this aside though, Gellenduo isn't all that bad of a card. It has the Spirit Reaper type effect of not being able to be destroyed by Battle, which is always good.

Unfortunately, it has the nasty effect of being destroyed whenever you take Damage of any kind. That would fall in the not-so-good category.
Battle Damage, burn damage, damage from a Magic or Trap card, the list goes on and on. If you have something you can tribute (Guardian Angel Joan?), you had better do it fast, because Gellenduo can be taken care of...easily.

In closing, I don't see why you just stick with Kaiser Sea Horse, since you are probably only playing either of them in a Light Tribute heavy deck involving things like Blue Eyes, Guardian Angel Joan, Moisture Creature, Gilford the Lightning, or Mystical Knight of Jackal. Try both, see which works better for you. It all comes down to personal preference in the end.

Ratings:

3/5 all around

Art: 3.5/5 Those two things are trying so hard to be cute...

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Gellenduo :
No one will ever finish a set of Yugioh ever again.
Ever!

This is probably the best of the secret rares as it is the least situational. A 1700 ATK monster that counts as 2 tributes isn't too bad (though why would you be using a two tribute monster?). Making it indestructible is better, providing some field presence for a reasonable deck type. Now, to get it to work you need Sanctuary in the Sky on the field (as the other ways of stopping damage aren't really worth it), but it is an entertaining card.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5

Share and enjoy,

Gellenduo

1.7/5

This monster has a few interesting effects (the dumbest picture ever) and a decent stat balance. The fact it is a light, fairy, etc. makes it usable in more than one way (anyone thinking about Freed right now?) But the fact he dies if you take any kind of damage is an automatic 1 in my opinion. The fact ring of destruction becomes a plus 2 or 3 upon use makes you cry. Firestorm monarch hitting a monster just nailed some more advantage. If that one line was not on there this card would be broken. But it is an it is worthless in my opinion.
Turkeyspit Gellenduo

In my opinion, one of the best Fairy-type support cards included in Structure Deck 11.

Spirit Reaper is pretty much seen as a staple card for most decks, as it serves as a last minute defensive wall which you can hide behind should your opponent have too much momentum. Gellenduo fulfills the same purpose, but also fits in with a Fairy-type theme.

Although it doesn't have the hand discard effect that Spirit Reaper has, it instead has pretty impressive stats. 1700 ATK kills pretty much every non-tribute monster out there except for perhaps Elemental Hero Straos, D.D. Survivor, Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer and Reflect Bounder.

It's secondary effect isn't as good as it should be. When I first read the text of this card, I immediately figured that this would be the perfect engine with which to summon Majestic Mech - Goryu. Alas, Konami has ruled that eventhough Gellenduo counts as two 'tributes' for a LIGHT Fairy-type monster, the text of Goryu requires two 'monsters' be tributed; so just like using Kaiser Sea Horse, Gellenduo doesn't meet the requirements to keep Goryu on the field permanently. That really takes the steam out of this card, because the only 2 Tribute LIGHT Fairy-Type Monsters that leaves us with is:

- Guardian Angel Joan
- Voltanis
- Moisture Creature
- Neo-Parshath
- Vanity's Ruler

Moisture Creature can't get it's secondary effect because, once again, Gellenduo only counts as 1 monster, while Voltanis and Neo-Parshath both have Special Summon conditions that are superior to a simple Tribute summon. Guardian Angel Joan isn't exactly splashable, and so I guess that leaves us with Vanity's Ruler, which in my opinion, is hardly a game breaking card.

Perhaps there are more two tribute LIGHT Fairy-type monsters in the pipeline, but for now, Gellenduo fails to live up to it's potential.

----------------------------------------

Traditional:
2/5 - It's LIGHT, but it won't stop your opponents BLS or CED

Advanced:
4/5 - This card is basically 3 more copies of Spirit Reaper.

Card Art:
3/5 - Soooo Cuuuuuuuuuuuuuute.

What happened to my weekend? It was just here!!! Oh well…..

GELLENDUO
Light
LV4
ATK/1700 DEF/0
[Fairy/Effect]
This card cannot be destroyed by battle. When this card's controller takes any damage, destroy this card. If you Tribute Summon a LIGHT Fairy-type monster, you can treat this 1 monster as 2 Tribute Monsters for the Tribute Summon.

Well, 1700 attack is decent, 0 defense isn’t all that great. It’s light and a fairy, so it gets a decent amount of support.

It’s first effect is nifty. It can’t be destroyed as a result of battle. It’s just like spirit repear, well….sorta. This effect is great if you chain Rush Recklessly in the damage step when in a battle with a monarch. Shrink works great too. Other than that, this effect is almost irrelevant due to its second effect. If this card’s controller takes ANY damage whatsoever, this card gets destroyed. So, if they summon Cyber Dragon and run this card over, or do damage to any other monster, this card gets destroyed as well. If they ring of destruction your Airknight Parshath, you lose your Airknight, 1900 life points, AND Gellenduo! You just gave your opponent a +1. If the opponent plays Sparks, you lose 200 life and Gellenduo.

It’s second effect is like a more restricted Kaiser Seahorse. It’s a two tribute for Light FAIRY type monsters only. Neo-airknight or Joan anyone? Kaiser can do the same thing but for other monsters too, like Moisture Creature and Blue Eyes.

I would not recommend this monster unless you ran it in a counter fairy deck, or a deck with a lot of Royal Decrees, Rush Recklessly, and Shrink.

Traditional: 2.5/5 (It is a light monster with decent stats)
Advanced: 3/5 (Counter-fairy or Rush/Decree deck only)
Art: 1.5/5 (What on earth are those things?)
