Koa'Ki Meiru Gravirose, an excellent little Ultra Rare, who completely disrupts the entire Koa'Ki Meiru theme, but more on that in a little while. We have a Level 4 Plant monster who is of the Fire attribute (doesn't Fire destroy most plants???) with 1900 attack and 1300 defense.

First, why does this disrupt the Koa'ki Meiru theme? Well, this Koa'ki Meiru pretty much belongs in a Plant Deck, and only a Plant Deck, where at least some of the other Koa'ki Meiru monsters are reasonably splashable, this one you will probably never find outside of a Plant Deck.

Now, as per usual, destroy this card during your End Phase unless you send one "Iron Core of Koa'ki Meiru" from your Hand to the Graveyard or reveal a Plant-type monster in your Hand. During your End Phase you can send one Level 3 or lower monster from your Deck to your Graveyard.

This is excellent support and adds great speed to an all ready feisty Plant Deck. Dumping all these monsters into the Plant Graveyard just fuels other combos, possible Synchro Summons, and helps Black Garden Decks. A great Plant card, seriously.

Koa'ki Meiru Gravirose ...

This thing suffers the curse of being a Koa'ki Meiru ... otherwise, it would have actually been pretty excellent. That being said, Gravirose is still very good. 1900 ATK on a level 4 monster is awesome. Plants are pretty respectable as of late and this gives nice boost to their population. Fire? ... I gotta tell ya - i LIKE it too. And the effect dumping a level 3 or lower monster from your deck to the grave is simply too sick for words. i dont even need to EXPLAIN why ... although if Gravirose was a DARK monster, she'd be even that much MORE insane. But, alas ... like i said - her Koa'ki Meiru upbringing and maintenance cost kinda spoils her some. Koa'ki Meiru deck??? Forget about it. Dark Plants? - u might have something here.

Wednesday, middle of the week ya'll, but seriously, its Wednesday and a new day brings a new card review. Today's card is mini-Tytannial, Koa'ki Meiru Gravirose, a Plant-Type monster in the Koa'ki Meiru series with a solid attack base of 1900 while the defense is rather lacking. Like all Koa'ki Meiru monsters you have to send an Iron Core or reveal some sort of type of monster based on the Koa'ki Meiru monsters type, which in this case is Plant-Type. This should be fairly obvious, so we'll move on to her other effect. During each of your Standby Phases, you can send a level 3 or lower monster from your deck to the graveyard. Wow, there are a ton of awesome targets for this. Dandylion, Lonefire Blossom, any level 2 monster if your deck runs Junk Synchrons, heck Gravirose can even send Treeborn Frog to the graveyard, and since it'd still be the Standby Phase, you'd be able to special summon it. Dandylion and Lonefire Blossom as well as probably Copy Plant and Nettles are amazing targets, seeing as how there are many ways to bring them back, mainly Gigaplant and Miracle Fertilizer. Being able to dump them and more than likely bring them back in the same turn, its pretty sweet. Im sure we may see some plant decks at the upcoming Shonen Jump in Orlando I believe it is as well as other various decks now that this format has drastically changed from the last format.
