Gladiator Beast Gyzarus is a neat Gladiator Beast Fusion being Level 6 with 2400 atk and 1500 def with the Dark attribute.  Now, as bad as the Format is, Gladiator Beasts are semi-playable, maybe even better, as like the Six Samurai, they are a fast Deck, that focuses on hitting and swarming the opponent.

 

So, this is a Fusion of Gladiator Beast Bestiari and one other Gladiator Beast of your choosing.  When Special Summoned, you can destroy two cards on the Field.  Note it doesn't say you destroy, it says "can," so it wouldn't have to destroy itself if there happened to be only two cards on the Field.

 

If you successfully destroy two cards of your opponents, you end up with a +1, as you had two monsters, gave them up for this, and destroyed two opponent's cards.  For those of you playing Gladiator Beasts, go ahead and play this one.  He has standard attack for the level, easy enough to summon, and a reliable destruction ability.

 

Ratings:

 

Traditional:    2/5  Gladiator Beasts aren't completely worthless here.

 

Advanced:   3.5/5

 

Art:  3.5/5

General Zorpa Gladiator Beast Gyzarus
 
A worker at my local card shop hates Yu-Gi-Oh!. I mean with a passion. So I was very surprised when he told me he was excited for a Yu-Gi-Oh! card. He showed it to me and said "This is the BEST card in your game". Of course I am inclined to agree. Gladiator Beast Gyzarus is a fusion monster that needs one Gladiator and Gladiator Beast Bestiari on the field to "Contact Fusion" him out. Meaning that the monsters are sent back to the deck instead of the graveyard and that Polymerization is not needed. When he is Special Summoned, you destroy up to 2 cards on the field. WOW. And to clear things up, ANY time Gyzarus is Special Summoned he gets this effect. Meaning if he is Spcial Summoned from the graveyard (and oh yes he can be if you contact fused him first) he blasts 2 cards. Then as if that wasn't enough, he has the Gladiator
Beast "Tag Out" effect. Meaning he gets 2 Substitute Gladiators from your deck after he battles.
 
I probably do not need to go over the combos that this guy does with Gladiators, but with Prisma and Test Tiger, they get out Gyzarus first turn. And is you are lucky, you can get Gyzarus AND Heraklinos out second turn. Now that is something that I would be excited to do. Oh wait! I already do that because I am running Gladiator Beasts. Lucky for us Gladiator beast Gyzarus is pretty cheap, and the only expensive card is Gladiator Beast Heraklinos, and you can even run the deck without it!
Everything else is either common or rare or a low cost ultra.

Gladiator Beast Gyzarus 

 Today we look at the reason why GBeasts have skyrocketed in popularity of late.

 GBG is basically the "boss" of the Gladiator decks right now. Boasting the decent 2400 ATK, and pointless 1500 DEF, he's a fairly powerful threat once he hits the field. However, once he hits the field, he's going to be doing the most damage. Being able to destroy "up to" two cards on the field is fantastic. The effect doesn't disappear if there's only one card on the field, and it doesn't force you to kill your own if there's only two. Absolutely awesome.

 His effect of going back to the deck is pretty darn good itself, allowing you to grab two more GBeasts that can effectively do their own damage. All in all, this is a pretty nifty card.

 His weakness is obviously getting two GBeasts plus Beastiari on the field, but that's easily overcome as the pioneers of this deck have shown. There's a reason this guys price doubled ever so quickly.

 Traditional: 3/5
 Advanced: 4/5

Gladiator Beast Gyzarus

This is my new favorite card, it is so powerful. It can destroy two cards the opponent controls. Technically it takes two of your cards to destroy two of your opponents however you then get back a 2400 monster so in turn creating a plus one. I personally think this card is far more versatile then Herk, the fusion using Laquari. This is going to be the driving force behind all Gladiator Beast decks from now on.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 5/5
