Krebons is one of the more interesting Tuner monsters out there, and it's awesome he made the list and also hasn't been reviewed :) Anyway, here we have a Level 2 Psychic-Tuner monster who is of the Dark attribute with 1200 attack and 400 defense (both which are pretty irrelevant, to be honest).

Krebons real value isn't so much in the fact he's a Tuner, or a Psychic, or Level 2, or even a Dark monster. The little gem of the built in effect is the prize here. Pay 800 Lifepoints to negate an attack when this card is selected as said attack target.

Again, you know why it's good, and I don't need to be monotonaus...tune in next week for the Top 5 Cards of 2008!

Art: 3.5/5 It's obviously a jester of some sort...

The little Tuner that could. Krebons is probably the most widely used Tuner simply because of his survivability. He can stay on the field for a really long time. His effect of paying 800 lp to negate an attack can completely turn an offensive push by your opponent into a rather costly overextension that you can manipulate. 1200 ATK, 2 stars and a DARK Attribute accompanied with th ebrand new Psychic type make this guy a winner.

He is usually seen in the standard Tele-DAD decks, being used to Synchro with both Destiny Hero Malicious and 4 star monsters like Stratos for Goyo Guardian and the Pantheon of level 8 Synchro monsters. The biggest part of this guy is that he can be Special Summoned by Emergency Teleport. With this card, you can not only unleash a storm of Synchros, but also blcok an entire Alpha Strike or attack, saving yourself to fight another day.

Right around now, Plaguespreader Zombie has replaced Krebons as the BEST Tuner monster, but he will still see play because he can be so useful in Tele-DAD as well as Anti-Meta Decks that want to shut down an opponent's moves. He is a classic example of a balanced card, good enough to be played in 3's, but not broken enough to earn a spot on the banlist.

6: Krebons

    Today’s card is Krebons. This is the most commonly used Tuner is the game by far. The star level of Krebons allows you to have access to most of your synchros. That alone, is reason enough to use him. Let’s not forget about his effect. He is a Necro Gardna for a small life payment. He can stall you for a little bit while you try to draw your key cards and win. He is a must in my opinion for any deck that does attacking or wants to synchro summon.
Mr. Random Krebons

When Psychics were first introduced, everybody knew that Krebons would be the top pick for any deck. Krebons helps in so many different ways. First of all, its a Dark monster and can help with Dark Armed Dragon decks get that last Dark in the grave with help from Emergency Teleport. Its a level 2 tuner that works well with any level 4 monster to get out Goyo Guardian or usually a Destiny Hero Malicious to Synchro for a Stardust or whatever.

Any attack towards Krebons can be negated by paying the usual 800 life points cost. This protects him and stops Gladiator Beasts from getting their search. With 1200 ATK, Krebons can get over most monsters that are switched to defense mode. Negating attacks, synchro summoning, easy special summon from deck and also its a dark monster, whats not to like about Krebons? Krebons will continue seeing play in many future tournaments.

Ah, the cute little guy finally gets the recognition he deserves. Krebons single-handedly built the Tele-DAD build, because without it, there would be no Synchro summoning of some of the most powerful cards that Tele-DAD has to offer. It is one of the best cards in the deck, and one of the primary strategies, and his #6 spot is well-earned.
