Back to the main COTD
Oracle of the Sun, a Spellcaster type monster,
who is Level 5, and requires a tribute, with 1000
attack and 2000 defense. Light attribute is
generally a good thing, but let's review, is our
Oracle worth a tribute, especiall with such
unremarkable attack and defense?
Well, if you control no monsters, and your
opponent controls one, you can Special Summon this
card, which does help boost it's playability.
When this card on the Field is destroyed and sent to
the Graveyard, you can add one "Fire Ant Ascator" or
one "Supay" from your Deck to your Hand.
Fire Ant Ascator is a Level 3 Tuner and Insect
who allows you to Special Summon a Level 5 monster
from your Graveyard, even though it has its
effect(s) negated, and is sent to the Graveyard at
the End Phase of the turn.
Supay is a Level 1 Tuner and Fiend who when sent
from the Field to the Graveyard, you can Special
Summon one "Oracle of the Sun" from your Deck, and
then Oracle's attack is doubled (to 2000) but
returns to the owner's Hand during the End Phase of
that turn. Honestly, I'm not very impressed with any
of these cards.
Oracle of the Sun ...
Another new card ...
First off - his stats are pretty lame. 1000 ATK and
2000 DEF? - well his DEF would be pretty decent if
he were level 4, but he's not. At level 5, they are
just pretty atrocious. He's light, so he's at least
got THAT going for him, with Honest support and
whatnot ... Plus, with less that 1500 ATK, Shining
Angel can fetch him from the deck ... When u look at
his special effect though, that's when the gears
start to really turn. If your opponent has a monster
and u don't, u can special summon the Oracle ... ok,
ok, so its not left as PURE dead crap in your hand
... although Cyber Dragon does the same exact thing,
but with a much healthier and worthwhile 2100 ATK.
But Oracle, if destroyed by battle, allows u to take
either a Fire Any Ascator or a Supay from your deck
to your hand. Looking aside from the benefits of
"deck thinning" and taking on a review of both THOSE
2 cards at this time, it becomes at least obvious
that a deck needs to be built around at least these
3 cards to make such deck/field manipulation
Unless I'm clearly missing some awesome kickbutt
combo cycle (which i've been known to do, ... and
may be rooted in the fact that Oracle is also a
Spellcaster), this seems like a big old waste to me.
He has to be killed by battle in order to get his
effect to work, which doesn't necessarily happen a
lot to 2000 DEF monsters, when monster bouncing and
destruction is so prevalent in todays spell, trap,
and effect monsters. Then, even if u DO get the
effect, u only get those 2 monsters to your hand,
not the field, so u don't maintain any field
presence with him. His 1st effect of being able to
be special summoned if ur opponent has a monster and
u have none would be nice if it were merely an
option, but since u would be crazy to tribute summon
another monster for this guy, u are now dependent
upon ur opponent being ahead in field presence at
any given point just to validate Oracle's usage ...
in which case, like I said - Cyber Dragon would be a
better card to have. And if ALL u wanted was a
special summon, there are LOTS of other choices for
So what i'm saying, in a roundabout way is -
barring some unforeseen awesome combo that may only
work 1 in 6 times u use this thing? - Oracle is
N o V a
Well well well, looks like we have another "Cyber
Dragon" like card, he's a light too! 1000 attack
isn't impressive but 2000 defense is rather decent.
Honestly I dont think decks with Supay or Fire Ant
Ascator will be seen in any decks. However Oracle of
the Sun could see some play. Makes me want to build
a sort of Drain City deck again, Honest, Neos Alius,
Oracle of the Sun, and so on. Would be rather
interesting. Oracle of the Sun is also a spellcaster
monster, so you can easily summon it with Magician's
Circle or Magical Dimension as well, there are a lot
of things you can do with it, I don't think it'll be
as splashable as Cyber Dragon but its still got uses
and there are definately worse cards to use.
Oracle of the Sun:
This card is all about what it can do with other
cards. This card can easily make many synchro
monsters, including the Sun and Moon Dragons. Both
of the cards that this card can search for (Fire Ant
and Supay) are tuners, and both of those tuners have
an effect that can bring Oracle back to the field.
I'd like to think this deck will make some waves,
but only time will tell. I may rethink my score
after I see more of what these cards can do. For now
I go conservative until I get time to make some
decks and play test. I am looking forward to the
"Inca" archetype though.
