Dark Jeroid

Hey guys! I've been burned out over the holiday season -- just too much going on here at once. Those of you that have been trading with me on the boards know exactly what I'm referring to here. Point trades, Wiis, holiday bills, the whole nine yards.

But I'm back now, and I think the time off from this really helped me deal with all the other stuff.

Dark Jeroid...this card screams "tech" when I see it.

It's okay on its own, but better when coming out through Mystic Tomato, as it ensures your opponent will have something on the field to lower. Otherwise, it has almost all of the desirable stats; Dark (which has more support than just about anything else in this game), under 1500 ATK (so Sanganable, Last Will-able, and Tomatoable), and Fiend (meaning you'd definitely include one in a Dark Necrofear deck)

I haven't seen it see a lot of play lately, but if Necrofear ever gets big, expect to see 1 of these per deck.


Dark Jeroid:
A card that has always sat on the list of interesting, but useless cards.

Reducing a monster's ATK by 800 is very useful. It makes the target very easily destroyed. However, as Dark Jeroid only has 1200ATK, he is also easily destroyed, so you can't exactly reap the advantage.
Thus, this guy, well thing, shall sit in trade folders for all time.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5

Share and enjoy,

Dark Jeroid hasn’t been used in a LONG time. I think he’s a good card with a good effect. Does he have much use now? Probably not.


On the up side, he’s a Dark attribute and he works well with Strike Ninja and Mystic Tomato. Reducing ATK power by 800 isn’t too shabby at all.


Last Word: Dark Jeroid has a good effect. I don’t think he’ll find much use as your run-of-the-mill Dark monsters in your Strike Ninja deck.




Traditional: 1/5

Advanced: 3/5

Well, Dark Jeroid isn't as great as he used to be. He's a fiend and Dark, which is good for Mystic Tomato and Dark Necrofear. His effect however, is decent. He can lower a Monster's ATK by 800 points when he gets Summoned. It's decent, but not that many Monsters in today's format are actually really worth using its effect on.

Final Rating
Advanced Format: 2/5 - Because he is Dark and a Fiend
Traditional Format: 1/5
