Today we look at Necroface, a very interesting
Zombie monster, who has a paltry 1200 attack, and a
solid 1800 defense. On the first note here, when
Normal Summoned, all cards that either player has
removed from the game, are returned to their
This card then gains 100 attack for each of those
cards. I'd be thinking you would want at least 13
cards removed total, so then Necroface would have
2500 attack points, enough to take out the 2400
attack terrors. That, however, is a lot of monsters.
You see (yes, I'm ignoring the second effect for a
moment...), I don't really see this as a card for
Zombies. It's a very combo oriented card. In a deck
that focuses on lots of removal, this card could be
huge. Zombies do removal too, but not on a grand
enough scale that I see Necroface being useful.
As for the second effect, when this card is removed
from play, not destroyed, but removed, each player
removes the top 5 cards from their Deck from play.
That's interesting, for disruption, at the least.

I would like to first point out that
there is a grammatical error in the card text.
(ignoring myself) So…this little doll is $200?
This card’s potential lies not within
ATK boost ability, but within the Deck disruption
ability. Since a Necroface removed from play by
another Necroface may trigger ANOTHER Necroface, it
can instantly remove 15 cards from your opponent’s
deck from play. Combine it with Inferno Tempest,
Bazoo the Soul-Eater, Lady Assailant of Flames,
Nobleman of Crossout, and whatnot other cards that I
may have forgotten, then Return from the Different
Dimension to seal the game.
Well, if you are willing
to spend $600 on cards that have Cindy Crawford’s
face drawn over it, I will not stop you (if you read
Dave Berry’s “Ugly Thing About Beauty,” you will get
my joke…). Demise has been the successor of
Cyber-Stein, and it relatively consistently
threatens any unprepared duelists.
There is not much about
this card except OTK potential. Zombie decks only
needed Il Blud and Zombie Masters, and Mystic
Tomato will probably search Sangan, Snipe Hunter, or
Spirit Reaper. Oh, and it is $200.
Well…OTK is always faster here.
Advanced: 3/5 + $200 / number of

Today we look at the
little scary doll called Necroface. This Secret Rare
fetches over $200 which surpasses Il Blud in every
way. In addition to its hefty price tag, if you're
going to be making a deck around this thing, you're
going to need 3. If you have that kind of money,
you're going to have a lot of fun with this deck.
Necroface is a
1200/1800 monster which is decent, its also 4 stars.
Its effect is where its good. When it is removed
from play, both players remove from play the top 5
cards of their deck. So basically, if you hit 1
Necroface and then another, you're milling out 15
cards from your opponent. In addition, when you
normal summon Necroface, all removed from play cards
are shuffled back into their owner's decks, and
Necroface gains 100 attack for each of those cards.
So let's say both
players had 25 cards each removed from play, this
little thing would have an attack of 6200, which is
As far as what you'd
play this thing in, it's all about Macro Cosmos and
Dimensional Fissure, so it can be removed from play
as fast as possible for the deck/OTK to work.
Necroface is good Nobleman of Crossout bait as well
for your opponent. Necroface would not be played in
Zombies in any way shape or form because Zombies
rely on the graveyard where as Necroface is all
If you can build a
Necroface deck, go for it, as it is one of the most
annoying decks to face off against especially if you
get Macro Cosmos out really early. Now, the deck can
be beat, but it takes time and patience in order to
