Angel 07 is our card today, a card
that tries SO hard to be good, and, well,
anyway...Angel 07 is appropriately Level 7, and a
Fairy of the Light attribute with 2500 atk and 1500
There's our first problem...a Level 7 monster with
2500 atk and 1500 def...both low.
(Note:I do like and play the card Dark Magician.I'm not being biased or hypocritical, the
same is true for him.)
Anyway, the effect is simply.Effect monsters cannot activate their
effects.That's great, monster effect shutdown in a
However, while 2500 atk is low, it
IS enough to take out the 2400 attack terrors, but
falls to DAD, DMoC, JD, and so on.
Besides, this is too much trouble
simply for her to be removed or destroyed by a Magic
or Trap card.Really, it's not a bad card...necessarily.It's just not environmentally friendly,
thanks to Gadgets, Monarchs, Perfect Circle, DAD/DMoC
removal, return, OTK/FTK, Diamond Dude Turbo, etc...
Traditional:1.5/5Even slower here.
Advanced:2.5/5For reasons listed above.
One step at a time.
2500 attack: Defeats the typical
one tribute monsters you're going to see in combat
1500 defense: Won't be wiped out
by a searcher in defense mode, so Book of Moon isn't
instant death for it.
Two Tributes: If the effect could
be enabled without tributing for it, this wouldn't
be too bad. As its a mandatory tribute summon,
however, this is enough to sink the card in all but
the most dedicated builds.
Effect: A variation on Skill
Drain, this card prevents even Exiled Force from
doing his Konami-given duty of "sacrificing for the
greater good". Does nothing to continuous effects,
Light/Fairy: Adds nothing
particularly outstanding to either stat.
Now then, here we have a monster
with a powerful continuous effect. It locks out
Monarchs, Exiled Force, searchers, and an assortment
of other typically obnoxious effect monsters. Other
continuous effect monsters (such as Jinzo and Spell
Canceller) ignore it entirely, making for
potentially interesting decks designed around
Could be fun.
Regardless, the mandatory tribute
summon hurts it deeply. As it is, we only see the
use of two other two tribute monsters right now;
Dark Magician of Chaos (who is typically special
summoned anyway) and Light and Darkness Dragon. Both
cards can change a game merely by touching the
field. DMoC is a floater, so anything he kills once
he's on the field is a bonus. LADD can take several
spells and traps with it before it leaves the field,
generating back easily the amount of resources it
Angel 07, however, does neither of
these things. While it can protect itself from
destruction through monster effects (Exiled Force,
Ryko), its two greatest threats come from Dark Armed
Dragon and Judgment Dragon... both of whom can
merely run it over.
Still, this is a format where much
of our destruction comes from monsters. With that
taken into consideration, Angel 07 does have
potential to wreck some havoc against DAD decks (if
you can hold off with Dragon himself) as well as
Lightsworn decks (again, if you can fight the
Dragon). More importantly, though, it annihilates
Gladiator Beast decks. That alone gives it some
potential use in today's meta. All things
considered, she either needs a deck built around
her, or she's a wild card side deck option.
Traditional: 2/5 (a few more cards
to negate, but a much faster format with more ways
of dealing with it)
Advanced: 3/5 (takes some effort to field, but can
deal a lot of damage to the current meta)
Well, this card is what Plasma wishes he could be.
While Plasma and Skill Drain only affect the field,
Angel 07 prevents monster effects from even being
activated. He does cost two tributes to bring out,
and his effect only works when that happens, but
Gellenduo and Kaiser Seahorse make that easy. A deck
packing this guy and Skill Drain would pretty much
bring to it's knees any deck that is commonly
Did I mention that he can run over anything that is
played other than the Big 4 (Light and Darkness
Dragon, Dark Armed Dragon, Dark Magician of Chaos
and Judgment Dragon)? Well he does, and makes life
very difficult for your opponent. With protection he
can win games.
with its horrible summoning cost in which it
requires 2 tributes in order to gain its effect.
Secondly its attack and defense are very poor for
effect it is possibly more complex then it appears,
for example it appears to be worded that it only
stops effects from being able to activate. This in
turn will not affect continuous effects such as
Spirit Reaper and Jinzo. Therefore this card is only
help for defeating Monarchs, Gadgets and Gladiator
for this monster is to great for a lackluster
is similar to Shadow Imprisoning Mirror, with its
effect but impossible to utilize.
angel 07 isn't that good compared
with plasma. plasma has a lot more attack, and if
you have two monsters on your side of the feild, you
can just summon another one then tribute them all.
not to mention scapegoat. if it gained the effect
when special summoned, or if it only needed one
tribute, then definitely. but not with this text.
