Cyber Eltanin ...
They should change the name of this card to -
"The Big Move"! I like it ... I like it alot!
Remove Light Machines in your graveyard and from
your field from play to special summon this thing,
and its ATK/DEF is the number of removed monsters X
500. If u only get to remove 5, u still have a 2500
attacker. Any more and it just feels like Super
Bonus Saturday (whatever THAT is) with this beast on
the field. The nitty-gritty? - Light is awesome.
Machines are pretty good. You should have a lot to
work with when constructing a deck for this guy.
What's even juicier is that he EARNS his name - "The
Big Move" from his 2nd effect. Once special
summoned, send all face-up monsters on the field to
the graveyard. So assuming your opponent has nothing
in his or her backfield when u bring this thing out
- regardless of almost whatever kick-butt monsters
your opponent may have lined up to defend them, if
they were face-up - they are now gone. Opponent is
now wide open for a direct attack. And by mid or
late game, that direct attack is more and more
likely to finish it all up.
Will there be decks built around this? - Yes.
Will they be any good? - Yes.
N o V a
Cyber Eltanin, the new version of Chimeratech
Overdragon pretty much with a few differences.
1. It can only be summoned by removing LIGHT
Machine-Type monsters from play.
2. Eltanin only gets 500 attack points for each
monster removed from play to summon it.
3. Chimeratech Overdragon sends all other cards you
control to the Graveyard, Eltanin sends all other
face-up monsters, including the opponents, to the
4. Eltanin is also a LIGHT monster, fitting with the
Cyber Dragon theme and also being a great Honest
5. Finally, Chimeratech Overdragon can attack as
many times as the number of monsters used to summon
it, Eltanin does not.
With this, you can see some significant
differences, and different uses. Sure, Eltanin can
be used at 3 unlike Overload Fusion, and you can use
Honest on it and so on. Personally I think
Overdragon is still better, its stronger and has its
multiple attack ability. I've basically already
covered Eltanin's effect, but there really isn't all
that many LIGHT Machine-Type monsters you will see
people using. Proto-Cyber Dragon, Cyber Dragon,
Cyber Dragon Zwei and Blue Thunder T-45 are probably
the main ones you'd see people using in any deck
that uses Eltanin, as well as, even though its not a
Machine-Type monster, The Light - Hex Sealed Fusion
for easy Cyber Twin Dragon. Eltanin may have an
impact on the game, but we wont know till the
upcoming jumps pass and we see whether or not it can
do anything for the Cyber Dragon deck.
