Friday

Closing out our mini week, we come to Turret Warrior, a monster I just don't really enjoy, even in the Warrior Deck, as it's obviously the only place he belongs. We have an Earth monster who is Level 5 with 1200 attack (pitiful) and 2000 defense (not great considering Level
5...)

This Warrior can Special Summon himself from your Hand if you tribute a Warrior-type monster first. Let's see...a Special Summon for a Level 5 monster that requires a tribute...that doesn't sound like much of a Special Summon.

However, it IS a Special Summon, so you can still perform your Normal Summon or Set of the turn if you desire. Now, to make you want to use this monster, he gains that attack of the tributed monster. Well, that changes everything!

Not...odds are, you will only be tributing a Level 4 or lower Warrior anyway, you aren't going to be pulling off any big moves with turret warrior. I mean, a Goblin Attack Force would be fun, that gives this guy 3500 attack.

Realistically, you're probably looking at a monster with 1600 attack or less, which is 2800 or lress attack for Turret Warrior. 2800 matches Dark Armed Dragon, but the big problem is, Turret Warrior has no other
effect(s) so then you just have a monster with (hopefully) a large attack.

Sorry, it's not worth it folks.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1/5 It's not even Light or Dark, and I don't see a Warrior/Chaos Deck using it.

Advanced: 2/5 It does do something, so it's not complete junk.

Art: 3/5 Even the picture isn't great.
General Zorpa Turret Warrior

Well, we have a variant on the Maju Garzett theme, this time on a Warrior. We have a level 5 Warrior with 1200 ATK and you can Special Summon him by tributing a Warrior monster. Then, he gets the ATK of the monster you tributed.

Arguably this card is better than either Maju, just because it is a Special Summon. He will not get nearly as big as any of the Maju monsters, but the surprise of busting out a 3000+ beater for one tribute is hard to ignore.

An aggro Warrior deck could use him well, as well as a deck that uses cards that restrict your opponent, like Royal Decree and Jowgen. He can be very good, just only in some situations. As most people are turning to Monarch decks right now, this guy can really be a thorn in their side if you activate a Royal Oppression afterwards.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-3.5/5

Turret Warrior …

Awesome. Let me just say that, right off the bat. To the point that either there is some huge errata that I’m not yet aware of, or expect this guy to get the hell banned out of him with the quickness.

Want to hear WHY he’s so good? Well, DO ya ?!?!?! Well, HERE’S why! – First off - he’s a Warrior. Easily the most supported monster type in the game. No contest. Earth – an excellent attribute as well. Especially for warriors. 1200 ATK. For a 5 star monster, that pretty much sucks. But when u get to his effect … well, I’ll get to that in a second. But for now? – 1200 DOES allows him to searched for by almost any searcher u can think of to play with, so u should never have a problem getting him into your hand. And it also allows him to be special summoned (although u would be an idiot to do this, but if it is your ONLY option, at least u still have it) by Giant Rat. The 2000 DEF is pretty fair enough…

His effect … wow. Tribute 1 warrior monster and his attack increases by that warrior’s attack??!? How sick is that?!?! In case u can’t “math too well” – Check it out – if u sack 1 standard 1800 ATK 4 star warrior, Turret gets boosted by 1800, giving him an even 3000 ATK points. At this point you should be thinking – WTF, and going back to reread it to make sure u aren’t missing something. It doesn’t say “for the turn”. It doesn’t say ‘tributed monster sent to graveyard”. Or any other swing wording that can allow your opponent to get out of a potentially dire situation through clever semantic shuffling. Heck, it doesn’t even say – “normal summon this card”, like they’ve been putting on other cards lately. Turret is Special Summoned. So u can absolutely do this on your opening turn, or any turn where you’ve already normal summon a warrior monster. And god forbid u have multiple warriors on the field with multiple Turrets in hand?

Dude is gonna be a nightmare and will end games quickly.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 5/5

Turret Warrior, a card I really like from the Crimson Crisis set. Its basically a Cyber Dragon with more power. You can tribute a Warrior-Type monster to special summon it, and it gets attack points equal to the attack of the monster you tributed to special summon it. So even if its a warrior with 800 attack, it becomes a 2100 attack monster. And with all that he still has a solid 2000 defense, I'd say thats pretty good. There really isn't anything bad about this card, its mostly because players find better cards to use that they dont use this card and will probably continue to not use this card. But in Warrior themed decks as well as some other decks that can abuse this card, its pretty good.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5
