Rockstone Warrior, a Level 4, Earth attribute
monster of the Rock type, which is just such a
surprise...with 1800 attack and 1600 defense, so his
stats aren't that bad.
Now, as for effects here, you take no Battle Damage
from a Battle involving Rockstone Warrior, which is
a nice effect on most any card, so I can't complain
about that. Plus, when the card is destroyed by
Battle, you get to Special Summon two (useless)
Now, the tokens can't be used for a Tribute Summon,
which is always quite a negative aspect, and you
only get them if Rockstone Warrior is destroyed by
Battle, so if your opponent doens't want to deal
with that, this guy will be destroyed in other
This guy is rockin'! Too bad of a pun? I think so.
Anywa we have an 1800 ATK Rock monster of the EARTH
attribute and level 4. Right there the stats are
solid. He can hold his own with pretty much any
other level 4 monster in the game and still come out
on top.Now his effect is where it gets interesting.
When he dies by Battle, you get two Rockstone
tokens. WOW! There is a reason that Dandylion was
limited to one. Free tokens are pretty much always
going to be a good thing. You can Synchro for extra
levels as well as tribute them off for the very
underrated Destiny Hero Plasma. I do hope that we
get more of these guys in the future as I wold very
much like to make a token Plasma deck for my own

Today’s card up for review is Rockstone Warrior.
HEY, more support for forgotten deck types! I
apologize, I haven’t had much time still to research
the newest set, and what decks certain cards could
go in. Im not seeing a point of the tokens you get
when this guy gets killed, except for something like
Destiny Hero Plasma?. I won’t complain about a type
getting support, a 1800 beater is one of the best
monsters that a Rock themed deck can create, it
isn’t so great though
Rockstone Warrior …
He’s kinda like a lamer brick version of Dandylion …
Rockstone has got a solid attack for a level 4 …
1800 … that’ll win a good amount of fights … and
since u take no battle damage with him – it doesn’t
matter if someone DOES run over him, so that’s good.
Earth? - a very good attribute as well.
So what’s wrong with him? … Well, nothing is WRONG
with him … just his effect is so lackluster u just
say – “What’s the point?” When he’s destroyed by
battle, u get 2 tokens with no attack or defense.
They can’t be tributed for a tribute summon, so they
are essentially nothing more than extra blockers …
extra blockers that Treeborn Frog could break
through if it wanted to … Again – nothing is WRONG
with that, but chances are u would rather be playing
a card that can do a little more. I compared
Rockstone20to Dandylion, cuz although Dandylion
doesn’t have Rockstone’s stats, nor his immunity to
battle damage – he’ll give u tokens almost any and
EVERY time … no matter HOW he’s sent to the
graveyard. Rockstone only gets them from battle. So
if he’s cleared by a Judgment Dragon or a Dark Armed
Dragon – u get nothing. Dandylion? – He’ll continue
to help u. Also, Dandylion’s tokens can be tributed
the next turn. Also very useful.
1800 ATK aint crap, but it’s nothing to write home
about or build a deck around. So u would only be
trying to play a card like this for his effect … and
to THAT end, u have better options.
N o V a
Today we review a new
and rather decent card for Rock fans out there.
Rockstone Warrior, this card adds some much needed
support to Dark Gaia decks as well as anyone
sticking strictly to a Rock-Type theme deck.
Rockstone Warrior is a solid 1800 attack, 1600
defense monster, and you take no damage from battles
he's involved in. Also when its destroyed by battle
while attacking you can special summon 2 Rockstone
Tokens to the field. The tokens cant be used as
tributes however for tribute summons, but overall
the effect is pretty good. Having another high
attacking monster to go with cards like Gigantes,
Koa'ki Meiru Guardian and various others, it makes
Dark Gaia pretty interesting to run again.

“Rockstone Tokens (Rock-Type/EARTH/Level 1/ATK 0/DEF

This card is another iffy card. You get two tokens
when he is destroyed by battle. That's only IF he's
destroyed by battle. Bottomless, PWWB, Dimensional
Prison, Mirror Force, Torrential Tribute, and even
Sakurestsu can easily get him off the field with no
problem and that's not even all the cards used in
this meta to get rid of monsters. He could have been
good with Monarchs but you can't use the tokens for
a tribute summon. Back in the beat down format (When
Jinzo, Gemini, Elf, Slate Warrior and Goblin Attack
force was prominent in every deck.) this card would
easily reign king as being able to defend yourself
from losing hefty amounts of life points. There is
still some light for this card. Effect negation is
one of the biggest things in this Meta so he would
make getting out Destiny Hero – Plasma allot easier.
Trad: 1 ( Not even close to good in here)
Advance (2.0 May be some good for him just not right
