We're having a short week this week (today and tomorrow,) and next week (Weds-Fri) but for these couple days (and next week, take note of the Ice theme) we're shifting from Generation Force.  Today we look at Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier.  We've looked at Dewloren, and Brionac before, but Trishula is the big monster of the Ice Barrier Deck.  We have a new Ban List coming, which is relevant, because not only is Trishula coming, but She, (yes she) is all ready Limited in Japan.  Anyway, Trishula is a Level 9, Water attributed Synchro Monster, Synchro Summoned with a Tuner and two or more non-Tuner monsters.  Three monsters usually is a bit of a downer, but I think it's well worth the investment here.  Trishula has 2700 attack and 2000 defense.  Now, when Trisula is Synchro Summoned, you can activate her effect to remove one card from the opponent's Graveyard, Hand, and Field, from the game.  (The card from the Hand is chosen at random.)  You get a three card removal just from Synchro Summoning, this thing is Limited overseas for a reason.  Expect Trishula to make a big impact on the game.  2700 attack is very good, and you can really stun your opponent, and their strategy by removing three of their cards.

There is not much to say about Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barier that has not already been stated. There is a reason that it was limited in Japan. A generic level 9 synchro that boasts 2700 attack with an effect that ONLY removes and does not destroy. If you have it you play it, no questions asked. Just a quick anecdote, I have seen a player plus 5 from a trishula play on just the summon alone.
Traditional: 3.5
Advanced: 4.5 (getting to level 9 can be hard sometimes)


Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

What is there to say about Trishula? There’s only a few level 9 Synchros in the game and only 1 has really ever come close to this card’s power (Mist Wurm). Not only can this card take care of problem monsters like Shi En, Naturia Beast, or Naturia Barkion, but it can also take out cards in the hand and graveyard. Against Plants, removing a key Glow-Up Bulb or Spore could be devastating. Against Samurai, Shi En doesn’t stand a chance. No monster is safe with Trishula around. This card is just amazing, there’s no question about it. There really isn’t much I have to say about it, I know it’s good, you know it’s good, end of story. If you have it, play it, even if your deck isn’t designed to make it. Mind Control and Monster Reborn can make it happen and it’ll probably be worth it.

Traditional: 5/5
Advanced: 5/5


Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

And here is everyone's most hated and most loved card: Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier. Kicking Mist Wurm out of the LV9 Synchro spot, this card is ridiculously broken: a minimum +1 with a 2700 body that is also a Dragon so Debris Dragon can make this with ease. Just about any deck that can Synchro can and should make this. Tengu/Tour Guide/Plant Synchro Decks make this card easily just about every game. Water Synchro puts this out multiple times. Offering Gadgets can drop this multiple times in one turn. Agents make this as early as its second turn quite often, and when it's followed up by a Kristya, it's game right there 90% of the time. If you have this card, you run it. No questions asked.

Traditional: 5/5
Advanced: 5/5
