Tour Guide From the Underworld--who didn't see that
coming? Let's see, like yesterday, she can Special
Summon another Monster, when Normal Summoned,
although this is pretty specifically geared for XYZ,
as it specifically can't be used to Synchro (at
least the Monster Special Summoned via this effect.)
She can Special Summon herself, hence instant Rank
3 XYZ. The Monster must be another Level 3 Fiend
type Monster, but no problem. This is one of those
lovely cards that about single-handedly (or in
multiples of itself) wrecked the game. It's a
5/5 both Formats
It is time to review the money card of 2011. Tour
Guide from the Underworld propelled the decks it
works in to the top of the food chain. Plant, Chaos,
Fiend, and some hybrid decks all got a big boost
from Tour Guide. The ability to go from a small 1000
attack monster to a 2500 attack monster, thin the
deck, and fill the graveyard with monsters for use
with Pot of Avarice or a Chaos monster is just too
good not to have in the right decks.
Tour Guide came out right before Xyz monsters
started coming out, so the plan for this card was
foretold in advanced and it has lived up to its
expectations. Simply summon Tour Guide, special
summon another from your deck or Sangon, and bam,
thank you Ma’am, Wind-Up Zenmaines or Number 17:
Leviathan Dragon. Life can not get any better than
that. Unlike Rescue Rabbit, we are not left with
vanilla monsters that clog our hand. If you need to
search for a card, do not Xyz with Sangon. Instead,
put it in defense and your Tour Guide essentially
becomes a 1500 or less attack search monster.
I do not know about you, but when I make a deck,
I like to pack it out with broken cards. If you take
Tour guide, Reborn Tengu, Maxx “C”, and the Extra
Deck cards from out top 10 and add in other broken
cards from the Limited List, you get the
Plant/Synchro and Chaos decks that are so dominant
in the game today.
NUMBER 1, NUMBER 1 NUMBER1!!!! Coming in at the
top of our list of best cards of 2011, is a card
that needs no introduction, but will get one anyway,
Tour Guide of the Underworld. Wanna know how hot
this card is? A single copy goes for over $120 on
ebay. It's so popular and high in demand, that it's
getting its own bus in Order of Chaos....ITS OWN
FRAKING BUS! I shouldn't have to go over its stats
and effect, you all already know what this card does
and its stats. If that's not enough, she's as cute
as the dickens. Overall, this card does what it does
well, Xyz summoning like no one's business. If you
have this card, you're doing on of three things with
it, using it, trading someone their entire binder
for it, or in a card sleeve waiting to be sold on
ebay. Tour Guide of the Underworld pulls her bus
into the number 1 spot on our best cards to be
released in 2011, now I can only hope she picks up
hitchhikers *Sticks out thumb*
We have reached the #1 card and surprise,
surprise it is Tour Guide from the Underworld. It is
an inherent plus 1 that leads to more if you special
summon Sangan. It creates a rank 3 Xyz with a normal
summon much like Debris Dragon and Junk Warrior make
synchro monsters with just a normal summon. It is
fodder for Chaos and is run in almost every top
deck: Tour Guide Plants, Tour Guide Agents, Dino
Let’s face it; this card being
at number one was painfully obvious for most.
Tour Guide from the Underworld
Fiend/ Dark/ Lv 3/ 1000 ATK/ 600 DEF
When this card is Normal
Summoned, you can Special Summon 1 Level 3
Fiend-Type monster from your hand or Deck. Its
effects are negated, and it cannot be used as a
Synchro Material Monster.
This card is basically a one
card rank 3 XYZ monster. Summon Tour Guide and
search for a level 3 fiend, and xyz into a rank 3.
The options this car has for xyz options are just
ridiculous: Leviar, Leviathan, Zenmains, and
Zenmaighty once Order of Chaos is released. This
card almost single-handedly broke the meta and is
currently sitting at about $180 bucks a pop. Granted
the price will either drop or raise depending on the
infamous ban-hammer (assuming the OCG gets this
card) or how well Tour Bus from the Underworld does
in tournament play.
In top tier decks, this card is
ran as a play set along with a lone copy of sangan
to ensure viable targets for Tour Guide’s effect/
This card is an answer to
almost any situation you are faced. Does your
opponent control a stronger monster? XYZ into
Leviathan. Need a good defender? Wind-up Zenmains.
Need something that has been banished? Leviair, the
Sea Dragon. Not to mention that also in Dark World
Tour Guide can special summon Broww as bouncing
fodder for Grapha.
Some counters to this card:
Effect Veiler, Double Summon, Thunder King,
DoomCaliber Knight, King Tiger Wanghu, Vanity’s
Emptiness, Solemn Warning/Judgment, etc.
Pros: One card xyz monster,
easily searchable, TOUR BUS!
Cons: the monster it summoned
can’t be used as a synchro material monster.
Advanced: 5/5(only if running 3 and with Sangan)
Tour Guide From the Underworld
"When this card is Normal Summoned, you can Special

or Deck. Its effects are negated, and it cannot be
used as a Synchro Material Monster."
For the top card of 2011, we have another
deck-thinning card. TG works best in an XYZ deck as
she can search out other LV. 3 monsters to use as
material for said XYZ. There's about 10 Rank 3 XYZ
monsters already with more to come, so that makes
for a fair number of possibilities.
Outside of XYZ decks, TG works wonders for
deck-thinning, esp. in DARK decks, helping you get
to Dark Armed Dragon, Black Wing synchros (if you
have Vayu in your hand), or in zombie or Dark World
decks to reach your key cards sooner.
There's a lot to love about this obnoxiously
cheerful guide and it's easy to see why she's the #1
card of the last year.
Tour Guide from the
Here is the top card of 2011, and for good reason.
Lets start from its release date though shall we? We
all read the card, and knew it would be a good card
eventually since Exceed were a new mechanic and it
would obviously get loads of cards for it. One of
the first big events it was able to be used in made
an impact right away, even though XYZ’s weren’t
legal. It was able to grab Sangan and basically gave
you a free search in the deck. This alone made the
card go up in value, and all of this was before the
ruling that you can detach Sangan from an XYZ and
its effect would trigger. That part was fixed, but
XYZ’s are becoming a huge part of the game now, so
she will be a force here on out guaranteed. She
fuels Avarice, your chaos monsters if you use them,
one copy gets you an XYZ monster, it has everything
and needs to be touched eventually without a doubt.
Sadly, if you are or want to be competitive, you
need 3 of these or you basically cannot compete.
