B.E.S. Big Core MK-2...the BES monsters were a very interesting set that never really caught on, because they relied on counters, and however good their effect(s) may have been, the counters really weighed them down.

However, this one doesn't exactly rely on counters, and isn't a terrible card. This monster is Level 6 with 2400 attack, which isn't a problem, with a very low 1100 defense, and a Machine of the Fire attribute? Yes, Fire...why, who knows?

Now, if you control no monsters, you can Normal Summon this card without tributing. Nice, a 2400 attack monster, so that's good in the opening game, and in late game situations, obviously where you control no monsters.

Now, no counters to weigh you down there, no problems. The counters come in if you Special Summon it. It gets 3, and as should sound familiar, if it battles without a counter, destroy it at the end of the Damage Step.

Furthermore, this card can't be destroyed by Battle, but I'm not sure if that only comes when it's Special Summoned, since it's written after that on the card. That's the assumption I'm going with anyway.

You can make a semi-respectable BES Deck, as long as you can keep the proper counters on the Field to make sure that they aren't so easily destroyed. If you're doing that, more power to you.

Ratings:

Traditional: 2/5 I don't see a real use for it.

Advanced: 3/5 Maybe a bit generous, but it is one of the better BES
monsters.

Art: 5/5 Almost looks like another Transformer.

B.E.S. Big Core MK-2 …

I have to admit – the BES Machines are all pretty cool looking … and this new one is no exception!

2400 ATK for 1-tribute … fairly standard … and Fire/Machine type? Not the most common, but still fun/interesting/cool. Based on its stats – this card is no slouch, but then its effect is what starts to lose me a bit … ok – almost all of these guys have that annoying “3-counters and you’re out” thing to them … which I was never a fan of … but Big Core MK-2 doesn’t get his counters unless he’s special summoned. Meaning that if u DO tribute for it, the ship will be floating dead in space without a way to attack. It’s 1st effect of being able to be normal summoned (no tribute) if u control no monsters is nice … especially since it’s not contingent on your opponent having anything on the field already, so u can bring him o ut immediately on your opening turn if u like … But again, since it’s a “normal summon” u would need to find a way to put counters on him quick (check the new Spellcaster Starter deck, in stores Now!), or he won’t last very long.

While he’s got counters, he’s indestructible in battle. That’s pretty cool. But overall … It’s not bad. It’s not great. If I were playing a BES deck, I would give him a try … there may be some cool things u can do with him …

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

We end this weeks Card of the Day with B.E.S. Big Core MK-2, another "Video Game" themed card. Unlike the others, this one can be normal summoned with no tribute if you control no monsters, which means you can summon a free level 6 2400 attacking monster. Like all the other B.E.S. monsters it gets 3 counters and when it battles a counter gets removed.

Now in most decks, this card is bad as there are better choices. Really I can only see this card going in some machine deck with the Teleport engine, but only back when Teleport was at 3. There really isn't much to discuss on this card as its the same as the other B.E.S. monsters, just it can be summoned without a tribute if you have no monsters, not a big difference.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5

This card will see no play this format but he does go in a deck with the other ones but still these are not that great at least not yet.
