I think I may hate this card.
First, it fails on name and art.
While technically sound, the
name seems like a lame attempt at
“improving” a unicorn.
I mean, it feels like
something you did thinking it was
wicked cool in grade school: “If one
horn is good, two – no three will be
Is this a contest entry or
Ah… possibly inspired by some
Also irritating is… it has
more than three horns!
Or are you going to tell me
those protrusions from its sides and
flank are supposed to be hair?
Bicorn might be able to save
itself with that claim, but not this
When will they learn… to make a
unicorn sound tougher, just swap the

As for actual play, the card doesn’t
fair much better.
It starts off promising:
being a Light Attribute monster is
fantastic, of course.
is a Level 8 Synchro monster… how
crowded is that “slot”?
Very, and to fully utilize
this card, the whole Synchro deck
will be even more crowded than
normal, but more on that later.
Beast is passable: they do
have some nasty tricks.
The 2800 ATK is strong while
2000 DEF will do.
We hit another potential
“deal” breaker, here: you can use
any Tuner but the non-Tuner Synchro
materials must be Beast-Type
So it’s Beast deck or bust.
The good news?
It has a revival effect that
is triggered by its destruction.
It does restrict to your
opponent’s cards (no using your own
stuff to blow it up) but at least it
can be through
or an opponent’s card effect.
The bad news?
The effect doesn’t revive
Instead you “get” to choose
Thunder Unicorn and

care for, but some of the summoning

in your Graveyard, so you’re kind of
stuck running them.
Important thing to note:
Tricorn, these two Synchro
Monsters require a Beast-Type Tuner,
so in effect you may as well
Tricorn to need one as well.
You can get some really nasty combos
off this family of cards… but most
of it I feel hinges on
Voltic Bicorn can practically
end games: if the opponent has 7 or
less cards left in their deck, they
have until their next Draw Phase to
win or replenish their deck, or else
This creates an almost built
Tricorn can only get…
In the end, we have a Synchro
beatstick that needs to be run in a
specific deck type (Beasts) in order
to be even that, and to be run in a
specific theme to be effective.
Even its effect feels clunky:
you have to bring out at least one
of two other Synchro monsters and
get them to the Graveyard afterwards
for the effect to do anything.
Bottom line, too many Synchro
monsters are required to make this
Some member of the family
needed to be something else.

of hobbies over the years, so at
various times I’ll have comic books,

kind enough to let me mention the
