Insert witty opening here...
Seriously though, how awesome would Power Giant have
been if he were a Tuner? Anyway, we have a
Level 6, Rock type, Earth attributed monster, with
2200 attack and 0 defense. Instead of
tributing, you can Special Summon this card by
sending a Level 4 or lower monster from your Hand to
You don't lose any Field presence, but you do still
lose a card in your Hand. Sadly, Power Giant
doesn't really do a whole lot. I'm not even
sure why you would use him in a Rock Deck. The
2200 attack isn't worth a Level 6, even without a
The Level of Power Giant decreases by the Level of
the monster you sent to the Graveyard to Special
Summon him. So for a plus, and I use the term
loosely, if this guy Battles, any effect damge you
take would be 0.

Power Giant …
Kinda a little pointless this big guy is. Ok. If u
pitch a Treeborn Frog or Dandylion or something,
then fine. U got a special summon of a 2200, 6 star
attacker, with a little fun on the side, depending
on what u sent … Oh wait – those 6 stars will come
down based on the level of the pitched monster.
Still not so bad at the end. But that’s not enough
to justify this card. Straight up – I’d rather plant
a fair warrior monster and swap it out for a Turret
Warrior. U’ll get a heavier attack 99% of the time
out of the deal and the Power Giant’s 2nd effect is
all but useless. Maybe I’m forgetting something
crucial, but how often do u take effect damage from
Here is a cool card that explores the area that
cards like Turret Warrior were trying to get
popular. You can see that this card has meh stats as
a level 6 EARTH Rock monster with 2200 ATK and 0
DEF. The zero DEF hurts, as Book of Moon and
Enemy Controller will just tear it apart. It does
have solid type and attribute, fitting in nicely to
a rock stun deck that could even pack a few fiends
in order to play Evil Hero Gaia.
The effect is simple you can Special Summon this
card by sending a level 4 or lower monster you
control to the graveyard. Then it's level is
decreased by the level of the monster you sent. You
also take no battle damage form battles involving
it. These effects are actually quite lackluster, and
do not play to the strengths of a card that can
Special Summon itself with such ease.
IMO The Tricky is a better pick, and that doesn't
see any play at all. As it stands, it could be used
in a deck with a lot of floaters to try and activate
their effects, but it just fall sshort of that.
Trying to fit into the Blackwing conga line is this
Power Giant thingy. Pay another card from your hand
and you can probably bump down his level for a meh
and costly Synchro Summon. This card is incredibly
situational with a very poor effect, which means
Yusei probably won a few duels with it.
