Now here is a card in stark contrast to yesterdays
card. This puppy boasts 1900 ATK, 200 DEF and is a
FIRE Beast. These are already impressive stats,
especially as the 200 DEF bit is actually going to
make the card MORE playable than less.
The effect allows you to Special Summon any FIRE
monster with less than 200 DEF from your deck
whenever it destroys something in battle except for
the Firedog. As that list is REALLY short its
playability right now is kind of moot. It is with
the release of the rest of the Flamvell cards that
are going to make this card good and probably raise
the FIRE attribute from the wretched state it has
been in since Volcanics fell out of favor.
Flamvell Firedog …
A new week of monsters from the new set … excellent.
Ok – Flamvell Firedog … I like him. 1st off – Fire
type. Very underused and underappreciated attribute.
Far from the best, but there a lot of hidden gems in
there. 1900 ATK on a 4 star body? – u KNOW everybody
loves these. Beast type? Awesome, although if he was
level 3, he’d be even chewier! Man … I would so
trade in 200 ATK points or so to drop him by 1 star
… but I digress… His stats are solid. His effect? –
just short of sickness. When he destroys a monster
in battle and sends it to the grave, u get to
special summon a monster from your deck, as long as
its fire and has only 200 DEF points. … AND it cant
be another Firedog. Now the immediate problem is the
lack of options … but don’t u just LOVE cards like
this? – the ones that make u dig back through every
card u ever owned – all your once thought of as
useless commons to see what new thing u can come up
So how overall EFFECTIVE his effect will be is based
on what u can find, but the principal of the effect
is almost second to none. Giving u a special summon
regardless of level or ATK for killing one of your
opponents monsters is "ultra field advantage
beatdown" in its purest form. And asking a 4-star
1900 ATK bruiser to do the job makes it almost
There may be some limited options now … but he’s a
card that will only get better. Don’t sleep on the
Firedog. He’s big.
N o V a
Tuesdays card is quite
the flaming beast, Flamvell Firedog. Now, im kind
of interested in this "Flamvell" theme, especially
because of this card. When it destroys a monster in
battle and sends it to the Graveyard, you can
special summon any FIRE monster with 200 or less
defense from your deck, except another Flamvell
Firedog. Its a solid 1900 attack monster, and can
pull various popular FIRE monsters like Fox Fire,
Volcanic Shell and etc. from the deck. Fox Fire is
one I would probably use with this card, only
because its annoying to have to keep destroying. If
you already have a Fox Fire with Flamvell Firedog
out, use Creature Swap to send Fox Fire to their
field, destroy it, grab another from the deck and
during the end phase you get the destroyed Fox Fire
back. Now theres another Flamvell that removes a
FIRE monster with 200 defense from play to inflict
damage equal to its attack points. As I said before
Firedog has a solid 1900 attack. That can be a lot
of damage. However I dont think its in Ancient
Prophecy, I cant remember but still, with effects
like that possibly being in the future, I see the
Flamvells being a possibly decent theme.
Cerebus, the original dog from hell, Flamvell
Firedog for you traditional Yugioh players out
there, now stop me if you have seen this before. A
Level 4 (or lower) Fire monster with great attack
(1900) and miserable defense (200). I remember when
Fire monsters and Decktypes were prominent...
Remember Solar Flare Dragon Lockdown/Burn? You might
not, it depends on how long you have been playing.
Remember the Volcanic Deck? You should, that wasn't
a horribly long time ago. Now, uncharacteristically
of Fire monsters, Cerebus doesn't burn your
opponent, he Special Summons a Fire monster with 200
or less defense, aside from itself.
The list of these monsters right now isn't so great,
and he IS hurt by not being able to pull himself.
The Flamvell Archtype is interesting, and could be
some fun, but for now is probably best used in combo
with other Fire cards.
