Shadow Delver is an interesting monster, despite being a Gemini. He is also a Fiend, and Level 4, who also, guess what, has 1500 attack points. You obviously still need a second summon to get the effect, which isn't terrible.

Once per turn, you can select a Level 4 or lower Dark monster you control and have the selected monster attack your opponent directly.
There are plenty of Fiends and Zombies that fit this category, a good one would be Spirit Reaper.

You might want to give it a try if you had the room, but the biggest drawback here isn't actually being a Gemini, it's the subpar 1500 attack.


1/5 Traditional
2/5 Advanced, at least for (marginal) potential

Art: 4/5
Bob Dole Shadow Delver

I'm personally not a huge fan of the Gemini cards, though they certainly do have their uses. Shadow Delver is a monster that about borders mediocrity. It's ability lets Don Zaloog slip on through, though if you're going to use it correctly, it's going to be in a deck utilizing equips and Mystic Tomato. If you can Mystic it to the field, then summon it during your turn, equip it with Axe or Mega, and swing directly for 2500-3000 damages. It actually makes for an interesting fun deck, though nothing really competitive.

It's good in Traditional as Chaos food, but I don't see too much use beyond that. Great for a Chaos deck featuring Tomato and Angel, but there are better things out there.
In Advanced, I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole. It's just not a competitive card, and unless someone discovers an amazing combo with it, then really it's not worthwhile. I would like to explore the possibility of a Tomato/Shadow/Don Deck. It has potential.

Traditional: 2.0
Advanced: 1.5
Advanced Shadow Tomato Deck: 4.5

I don't know what happened with the last CotD's I sent ya, but if there's a problem with anything just let me know.
General Zorpa Shadow Delver

Another Gemini monster that has potential. He has 1500 ATK and allows you to directly attack your opponent with a level 4 or lower DARK monster. This can be game breaking considering games are decided by less. Right now he is not so good, but GLAS might make him playable...
