Back to the main COTD
Voltic Bicorn, who can also be Special Summoned
from the Graveyard if the condition is right, is a
Level 7, Light attributed, Beast type Synchro
monster with 2500 attack and 2000 defense. Synchro
(again) by a Beast-type Tuner and 1 or more
Now, if Voltic Bicorn is destroyed by your
opponent, by Battle or by a card effect, both
players send the top seven cards of their respective
Decks to their Graveyards. Mill Decks aren't
incredibly popular but we would have a place for
this card here.
And what about Lightsworn monsters? This is the
one that's just screaming for some use and/or abuse
with the Lightsworn. The other couple cards this
week were close, but I think this isn't as big a
bust as the rest.
Today's card is the last of the Popcorn monsters,
and is actually to noboy's surprise, not very good
at all. Voltic Bicorn is a level 7 LIGHT Beast that
has 2500 ATK and 2000 DEF. It also needs a Beast
Tune rmonster, just like his brother the Lightning
Unicorn. These stats are actually not hideous for a
level 7, but with the release of Scrap Archfiend, we
no longer really have that problem. See the
effectless Archfiend is almost better because it
doesn't have an effect over Bicorn's effect.
The effect in this card is pretty bad. Ifit dies by
an opponents card, both players send the top 7 cards
of their deck to the graveyard. So they decided to
put a bad situational milling card as a boss monster
ina decktype that has no ned for milling nor
really for it? I ahve to be the one to say it, I
don't think that this card can be good in pretty
much any way in constructed, which is a shame, I
want to see the corn monsters go somewhere.
Voltic Bicorn …
The best of the 3 electric horses. It’s a level 7
synchro, which gives folks a fair new option, so
long as u have Beast type tuners are your disposal.
2500 ATK aint great for its level, but Stardust gets
away with it at level 8. VB is not in Stardust
class, but for the right deck build, it does the
trick … Namely – building to slaughter an opponent’s
deck. When VB is destroyed by ANY means by your
opponent, both of u send a whopping 7 cards from the
top of your decks to the Graveyard. Now, with 2500
ATK, chances are your opponent will always have a
couple options of taking it down in battle, which is
good, cuz dying is a good thing for Bicorn. U can
even ram the Bicorn yourself into your opponent’s
stronger monster to kick it off. What’s even nicer
is that it doesn’t say VB has to go to the graveyard
either. So Bottomless trap hole won’t protect u from
its effect, nor will any Macro Cosmosing, or
Necrovallying, or anything ... In fact – the only
ways to get around his effect is to remove him from
play withOUT destroying it (Caius, Dimension Prison,
etc.) or bouncing it.
Lighting Tricorn will fetch Bicorn back after
losing it so u can do the 7 card dump all over
again. (hence the only reason to even consider
running Tricorn) So a fun Deck Out Deck could be
made, built around the Bicorn. Or he’ll fit fairly
well into the Lightsworn mechanic as well.
And … yeah. That’s what I’d do with him. Both
ideas are fun.
Freeza is fun.
tries to hard to be ‘cool’.
Like I said with
Lightning Tricorn, unless I
–corn support cards that require
maintaining that syllable in the
name, it is a pretty silly theme.
While it avoids the error of
Tricorn by not having so many
“orange lightning chest hair” is
Fortunately this card actually has
some good things going for it.
Being a Light monster is
great: if you have a card in hand or
facedown, your opponent still has to
worry about attacking.
a Synchro Monster is “okay”: Level 7
isn’t the most crowded slot.
Hitting Level 7 will require
a little more effort than say a
Level 5 or 6.
that it requires a Beast-Type Tuner.
Being a Beast type is fairly
good for this card, due to its
effect (more on that later).
The 2500 ATK seems a tad low
but isn’t crippling, and the 2000
DEF should keep it from being
wrecked by position change.
The effect is what makes this card.
When it is destroyed by your
opponent’s card, either through an
ATK or an effect, both players
discard the top 7 cards from their
impressive depletion effect and many
cards can take advantage of the
Sadly its Type isn’t the most
optimal, but you can indeed make a
solid Beast deck with the right
Baboon monsters spring to mind).
Imagine if this had been a
Zombie it would have been insane.
Besides some dedicated beast decks,
you can slap this into a
Macro deck where it can fuel the
combo quite beautifully.
Just remember to include
those Beast-Type Tuners.
3/5 – It is
Chaos compliant, capable of
speeding your own
Chaos monsters set-up while
trashing the opponent, but the
required Beast Tuner and risk of
being removed hurts it.
4/5 – This may seem a bit high, but
it isn’t impossible to splash into
many decks (there are some good
Beast Tuners, after all).
This score also reflects its
use in its own deck.
I am still selling quite a bit of my
stuff on eBay. I’ve had a lot
of hobbies over the years, so at
various times I’ll have comic books,
manga, action figures, and video
games on the auction block.
You can take a look at what’s
up for bids
here. I usually add new stuff
on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Just a reminder, Pojo is in
no way responsible for this and was
merely kind enough to let me mention
the auctions here. ;)
