Magidog

And after an absence of waaaaaaay too long due to film production and work, I am back with a review of the second Magic Pet monsters (The first was Magicat). As far as stats go it is a 1700 ATK and 1000 DEF level 4 LIGHT Spellcaster. These stats are pretty good, as LIGHT monsters are the second best ATTRIBUTE and 1700 ATK on a 4 star is about average.

The effect is actually not very good. When you Synchro Summon a monster using this little pup, you get to add one Field Spell card from your graveyard to your hand. While useful in that it gives you cards, there are easier ways to get advantage in this game. It is better to use cards like Destiny Hero Malicious, Sangan and Goblin Zombie for Synchro Summons as you can build a deck around them and they get you monsters, which are more important than a spent Field Spell.

It is a Spellcaster, so it might find a home there with Magical Citadel of Endymion. At that point however, you would probably rather have Terraforming to power up an on field Citadel and it is situational in that you do have to Synchro Summon.

This is just not e very good card. It would have been good I think even if it had said Field, Continuous or Quickplay. Then it would see play. As far as I am concerned, the decks that would use this have better options and therefore it is not a good card by any means.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-1/5

Greg Magidog:

     Anybody else think this guy looks like Star Fox from the Nintendo universe?  Unfortunately that's about all this card has going for it.  Stats are low enough to be run over everything that matters (Firedog, Shura, etc...)   And IF you use this guy for a Synchro Summon, you can get a field spell back from your graveyard?  Stupid effect.  Nobody uses field spells except for maybe Gravekeepers, and then to add the Synchro restriction to the effect is just dumb.  I guess they want you to use this guy in a Secret Village deck maybe?  I have no idea what they had in mind while making this card, but we could have done without it in my opinion.

Traditional:  1.5
Advanced:  1.5  (stupid starfox with your seizure inducing graphics and bad yugioh cards)

Our next card this week is Magidog, the counterpart to Magicat. Magicat wasn't all that great, and Magidog is even worse. Although he does have nice stats, his effect isn't really needed. If your Magical Citadel of Endymion has somehow been destroyed, and you don't even have another one eagerly waiting to fill in, but you do happen to have Night's-End Sorcerer on the field and Magidog in your hand, or vice-versa, you can get your Citadel back.

Spellcaster decks have a lot of cool cards they can run, and they're better off using cards that will support the deck more. You want to focus more on Breaker and Defender and cycling tuners, etc. with things like Magical Exemplar. Stick with cards that give you stronger and more consistent supports, because you're not likely to only get one Citadel and have it wiped off before you get another, but be able to make a Spellcaster Synchro.

2/5
Art: I wouldn't pet that dog. Would you?
Fun Fact: Gol and Mia's Citadel. Oh my jeebus the nostalgia hits you.
Tomorrow: A theme I don't like.

Magidog:

Well, here we have some spellcaster support (finally)! With 1700 ATK and a LIGHT attribute (meaning Honest works), this card is looking OK already. The effect is interesting. When it goes to the Grave for a spellcaster synchro (Arcanite or Tempest Magician so far) you get to add a Field Spell to your hand. This means if you send it and a level 3 tuner, or it and a level 2 tuner, you get your big boss monsters PLUS an extra Spell Counter resource (Magical Citadel of Endymion). Seems like it could be useful in spellcaster deck, however, spellcaster decks aren't all that good anymore. Maybe use it in a LIGHT beatdown hybrid, but you aren't going to see this being used competitively, sorry.

Advanced: 3/5
Traditional: 1/5
