Closing the week, we look at Fog
King, a Level 7 Spellcaster, appropriately of the
Water attribute with a stunning 0 attack and 0
defense.Although being Level 7, you can Normal Summon
Fog King with only one tribute...
Or, with none at all.That, in itself, is awesome!Anyway, neither player can Tribute monsters
while this card is face-up on the Field.
Odds are, this is going to hurt
your opponent, however, it doesn't have to hurt you.
A Legendary Ocean Decks could get
some real power outside of this.Can your normal Deck be able to compete with
this card?I'm not sure.
Odds are, you're going to want to
tribute too, and you can't bank on the fact you will
get everything you want before your opponent, and
then this card.
Advanced:3/5My jury is still out on this.Some Decks could use
it, others won't.Just wait for someone to break it open.
Too bad this couldn't be out while Monarchs were
ruling the tournament scene, no?
You've either got a free Mask of Restrict you have
to protect, or a 1 or 2 tribute monster that can
hold its own on the field. For those that are
willing to have a 0/0 monster on the field, you've
also got access to it through Mother Grizzly, and
other search cards work with it because of its
printed ATK of 0. Do I think it's going to
impact tournaments? Not right now. Might
it do so in the future? Possibly.
But for right now, this gets a 2/5 for not really
being able to stand up to all that much, and not
countering any top-tier decks.
Friday - Fog King
Today in the COTD section, the crew is reviewing Fog
King, a Secret Rare in the Light of Destruction set.
No, Fog King doesn't have anything to do with
Cloudian monsters, which is good or bad depending on
your point of view. As always, I'll begin with the
Fog King's can be Tribute Summoned by tributing 2
monsters, or it can be Normal Summoned without any
tributes, in which case its attack would be 0. Fog
King's attack points equal the original attack
points of the monsters that were tributed in order
to Tribute Summon this monster. This card is much
like Maju Garzett, except it comes with a couple
more effects. While Fog King is face-up on the
field, neither player is permitted to Tribute
monsters, which includes Exiled Force's effect.
This monster's ATK is explained in its Card Text,
and its DEF is always zero, except in special cases
where another card effect is involved. This isn't
too awesome, but Fog King is most likely always
going to be in attack position. Fog King is a
WATER-attribute monster, which means that
WATER-based decks get a slight boost. It's a
Spellcaster-type monster, so Spellcasters get
another strong Tribute monster.
When Fog King is good and isn't good
In my opinion, Fog King isn't good in any situation,
and it doesn't fit too well in any deck.
Spellcasters already have enough high-level support,
and they don't need anymore. WATER-based decks never
have made it too far, and they don't get a decent
boost as most of their support builds off of
Aqua-type monsters, which Fog King isn't.
Ending off the week, we review fog
king. This card rocks. DaD could take this along
with mask of restrict and completely shut down the
format. With his ablity to replace just about any
floater, or none, this works like a gem. Of course,
only in the advanced format because trad. is ruled
One of the more
interesting cards from the new set, Fog King is
essentially a Mask of Restrict with a body. It also
has the bonus of potentially gaining some Attack if
you do decide to tribute for it, but has the
versatility to hit the field quickly if you are
going first or do not feel like tributing for it. In
the current format the only thing it's really going
to stop is the occassional Enemy Controller, but in
a slower format full of tribute monsters it could
potentially see play in Side decks.
You can Normal Summon this card with 1 Tribute, or
without a Tribute. The
ATK of this card is equal to the combined original
ATK of the monsters
Tributed to Summon it. Neither player can Tribute
It's pointless to tribute monsters for this card.
Unless you need to take down a big monster on the
field. I see this card as a Mask Of Restrict. Where
it negate tribute summons, but is a monster form.
It's more of a lock down type of card. The problem
is, no one really uses tributes monsters anymore. In
the day of the monarchs, this would of been a nice
card. It would of helped make a solid deck to combat
the monarchs. It could of been thrown in a lot of
burn lock down decks and other stall decks. If
monarchs every come back to being splashed with
decks or become good just themselves, then this card
can see some play. The defense/attack are 0, but it
doesn't make a difference. Decks who would use this
card will defend it. Which is easy, because the
whole deck they may run will stall.
Advanced- 2/5- I would give it a better rating if
the format wasn't so fast and since tribute monsters
aren't very popular right now. It still has a lot of
