Snowman Eater is seriously one of the oddest cards ever in Yugioh...I mean, I sort of felt like writing and ranting about who or what would go around eating snowmen, and why, but they are a source of water I suppose...in short, we have Man Eater Bug, with 0 attack, 1900 defense, and Level 3 with a Water attribute.

What else do you want to here? Flip and destroy a monster...we've seen this before, and if you're playing monsters or cards that destroy monsters like this, it comes to personal preference.

Ratings:

1/5 for the fourth time this week...
Art: ?/5 I seriously don't know what to say...
General Zorpa Snowman Eater

This was supposed to be the silent hit from RGBT, but it was a bit of a flop. Stardust Dragon came back in popularity, as people rely now more on monster effects to rid the field of Synchros. Basically this guy's 1900 DEF and flip and kill a monster effect made him a real star in Japan as they used Deep Sea Diva, Salvage and him to create massive swings in advantage backed up by Synchro Summons.

Alas, he is a bit inferior to Gravekeeper's Guard, the preferred defender as he can go offensive with his 1000 ATK, remove ANY threat on the field AND be offered as a tribute for Crush Card Virus. The Eater cannot do many of thes ethings, but he is a bit more versatile. I used him in a new generations PAC-MAN deck and got some pretty impressive results. The deck itself was far too slow, but shows how powerful many of these cards have become.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-3/5

    Today’s card up for review is Snowman Eater. It’s about time we got a snowman in the game haha, but let’s dig a little deeper into this card. More Aqua support and high defense is cool, but having 0 attack is atrocious. After this guy gets flipped, I’m not sure what purpose he will serve. I apologize if there is some combo that I am not aware of, but I don’t see much of a use for this guy

Trad: 1/5
Adv: 1/5

Snowman Eater ...

What a cool card. All of the benefits of being a flip effect monster, but none of the drawbacks. Of the monsters that destroy monsters when flipped - this is among the best in his own right, mainly because of his awesome 1900 DEF. most non-tribute monsters will have trouble breaking it. The Rykos, Night Assailants, Man Eater Bugs, and Old Vindictive Magicians of the world usually die in the process when attacked, so it turns into a 1 for 1 trade. Because its hard to break the snowman's defense, u will often destroy your opponent's monster, leaving the snowman on the field to tribute for something else come your turn. His major flaw comes after his effect goes off. U got a nice 1900 wall up, but he's got no offensive capabilities. Also watch to make sure he's not flipped while ur opponent has no monsters ... as Snowman will eat SOMETHING ...even if it winds up being himself ...

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

Todays Card of the Day is Snowman Eater. This card is actually a pretty decent card. Its almost the equivalent of Gravekeeper's Guard, has a similar effect and same defense. Gravekeeper's Guard is a Flip Effect where as Snowman isn't, which really doesn't make too much a difference but it is a difference none the less. When Snowman Eater is flipped face-up, you can destroy 1 face-up monster on the field. This is another difference, for two reasons; 1) It can destroy any monster, yours or your opponents and 2) Gravekeeper's Guard returns a monster to the hand instead of destroying it. Its a pretty cool side deck card since its a pretty solid wall against most cards, and even if they use a Synchro to get over it, Snowman can destroy it if flipped. The only problem here is that since it destroys, if the opponent has Stardust they can just negate it which ends up hurting you in the long run, which is partially why Gravekeeper's Guard is better.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
Parallel Fates Snowman Eater…. Have we gone completely retro on effects here? Effect-wise, it’s even worse than good’ole Man-Eater Bug. The fact that you are only able to destroy face-up monsters is a really big drawback on this card. It takes away the amount of options you have to follow up on. However, the one upside is that it has a monstrous 1900-defense, which is enough to thwart most attacks from non-tribute monsters.

At best, it’s a +1, and at worst, it’s a 1-for-1, assuming its effect goes through. Given that you can only destroy face-up monsters, you’ll likely end up destroying the attacking monster unless it kills this. This leaves you with an option to stall with this card, or use it as a tribute on your following turns.

It’s got the potential to make a splash in monarch decks perhaps.

2.5/5
