The Big Saturn ...

Cool picture. Cool name. Meh card. 2800 ATK Dark Machine. Should be good, right? Well he can't be special summoned from the hand or deck ... That kinda sucks. U can still tribute summon him (which u rarely EVER want to do if it can be avoided), and he can be specialed out from the graveyard ... ok, ok ... And once he's out - u can discard a card AND pay 1000 life points to increase his attack by 1000 till the end of the turn ... ewww ... he has TWO costs just to get that one effect to work? ... and its not even a permanent increase? If u are that desperate to fight over big monsters, there are better ways to do it, really. ... and then of course - Saturn's last effect - if he is destroyed and sent to the grave by your opponent effect, both u and your opponent take damage equal to his attack ... So if your opponent has 2800 lifepoints left or less and Saturn comes to the field - they are in trouble.
However ... there are many solutions to the Saturn problem even if u DO fall into this situation ... He can be bounced, removed from play, tributed off, or just run over by battle ...

Yeah, he's just meh. Interesting, but hardly worth any REAL effort to get anything worthwhile out of him.

The Big Saturn, not exactly an amazing card like Machina Fortress, Big Saturn cannot be special summoned from the hand or deck, limiting easy summon options. Once a turn by paying 1000 life points and discarding a card you can give it 1000 attack till the end of the turn. Not sure if thats really worth its cost, and when its destroyed and sent to the graveyard by a card effect your opponent controls, both players take damage equal to Saturns attack. Not really going into much detail on Saturn, there are much better cards to use, Machina Fortress, Gadjiltron Dragon and various others are proof.

Traditional: 1/5
