Aztekipede, the Worm Warrior is our card for today,
a rather interesting Insect monster. Aztekipede...such
a needlessly long and fairly difficult to say name.
Anyway, Aztekipede is a Level 4 Insect monster with
an excellent 1900 attack and a very paltry 400
defense who happens to be of the Earth attribute.
Now, you cannot Normal Summon or Set our Insect Worm
You can only Special Summon this card by removing
one Insect type monster in your Graveyard from play.
Now, as a nice bonus, when this Insect inflicts
damage to your opponent, they must send the top card
of their Deck to the Graveyard.
It's definitely a solid beatstick for the Insect
Deck, but has no place elsewhere. You play it in its
own Deck, or not at all :)
Wednesday- Aztekipede, The Worm Warrior
Basically, you have to compare this card to Doom
Dozer because they support the same deck and hurt
each other. This card is bad, terribly designed, and
generally an epic failure.
Premier Level: Insects will never even sniff top
tier without drastic support given, since the Swarm
engine is horribly outdated in such a fast format.
Casual Level: Doom Dozer dominates the field, can
swing over anything, fuel OTKS, while this card is a
situational special summoned Gigantes-ish monster
with 1900 attack and a terrible, terrible effect. I
have no clue why they're giving Insects the
sub-property of sending the top card from the
Opponent's deck to the graveyard. If they want to
simulate insect eating (like termites), they should
let you call a card in the opponent's deck to
destroy (great idea!)
As it stands, the Worm Warrior is a lackluster 1900
attack monster, situational, that doesn't even float
or create any utility.
Aztekipede, the Worm Warrior
Today we look at this new Insect that could have
some potential... It's Aztekipede, the Worm Warrior.
With 1900 Attack and being an insect, I'd rather
just be playing Insect Knight that has the exact
same attack without the special summoning. This is
just a white washed Doom Dozer, except you remove 1
less Insect from your graveyard to get rid of it.
Insects were only used in the Demise build for the
OTK, but now that Advanced Ritual Art got knocked
down to 1, I don't see insects as viable options
anymore. An interesting card, that will be not
looked at, and probably won't see any play anytime
Aztekipede, the Worm Warrior
What we are reviewing today is the miniature
version of Doom Dozer from Shadow of Infinity,
which we saw a lot of play in Demise OTK. Thanks
to the new Ban List, Demise OTK pretty much met
its end since Advanced Ritual Art, its essential
ritual spell of the deck, is restricted to 1
copy per deck. Aztekipede is also a useful card
in Demise OTK decks, but it came a bit too late
to even see play anymore, except into some sort
of Insect-Deck Out deck I've seen worked a
couple of years ago, but vanished since then.
I don't really want to talk too much about
this guy since he isn't worthy in almost any
deck, except an Insect-Based deck. He can't be
normal summoned or set, can't be special
summoned except by removing an Insect monster in
your graveyard from play. It has a beatstick
1900 ATK with a weak DEF of 400. When it
inflicts battle damage to your opponent, it
sends the top card of opponent's deck to the
graveyard. This tactic can either disrupt a Dark
Armed Dragon's 3 Dark monster graveyard count,
send a useful spell/trap to the grave, or help
fuel their graveyard to summon out Dark Armed
Dragon or Darklord Zerato. This card is a gamble
to play, and I don't suggest to play it until
Dark Armed Dragon sees its end with a
counterpart deck or the next banned list.
Art: 1.75/5 (I HATE insects!)
Wednesday - Aztekipede, the Worm Warrior
Today we're reviewing a rather unusual card from
Phantom of Darkness that doesn't fit in with most of
the new effects we find in the set. Aztekipede, the
Worm Warrior is somewhat like The Rock Spirit and
The Flame Spirit, because they all have the effect
of removing from play 1 monster of the same
type/attribute to be Special Summoned to the field.
Like the old cards that resemble this one that I
just mentioned, I don't think this card will see any
competitive play. Aztekipede's effect forces the
opponent to send one card from the top of their deck
to the Graveyard. There is only one good part of
this effect, and it isn't all that great. The good
part is that the effect can cause the opponent to
lose a key card that they need such as a Destiny
Board card or a piece of Exodia, or just a monster
that they needed to end the duel. It can also cause
the opponent to deck out, but that rarely happens
nowadays. The horrible side of this effect is that
it powers numerous decks in the format. Dark Armed
Dragon can easily get its DARK monsters in the
Graveyard, Disk Commander can easily be thrown into
the Graveyard for future advantageous purposes,
numerous strong monsters can be dumped into the
Graveyard, allowing for cards like Premature Burial
and Monster Reborn to bring them back, and more DARK
attribute monsters can be sent to the Graveyard to
be removed from play for DAD's effect. In
conclusion, this card isn't any good at all in the
current format, not even in an insect deck, simply
because its effect isn't strong enough or fast
Today we're reviewing Aztekipede The Worm
Warrior, another UDE World Exclusive that
debuted in Phantom Darkness. This card
happens to be the b------ child of Doom
Dozer. As Doom Dozer sports 2800 ATK
while milling 2 cards from opponents deck
and removing 2 Insects to summon it,
Aztekipede removes 1 Insect to summon it,
has a paltry 1900 ATK and mills 1 from
opponents deck when damage occurs.
So ya, I expected UDE to actually do
something better instead of making a weaker
version of a Konami Card
Until Next Time
hope I'm not late. That'd be bad.
anyways, the card I'm reviewing is
Aztekipede, the Worm Warrior. HAHAAAA.
what a weird name!
bugdown might actually be a serious deck
with the release of this. think about
it, they got saber beetle, howling
inscect, doom dozer, inscect knight, and
now this! that'd be a fun deck to play.
this along with dozer could shift it to
a return deck even.
