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

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.
