Back to the main COTD
Anarchist Monk Ranshin...I find it difficult to
believe an anarchist would become a monk, or vice
versa, though the latter is a bit more plausable.
We have a Level 4, Earth attributed Spellcaster,
with 1800 attack and 100 defense.
When this card is sent from the Field to the
Graveyard, in about any way (Battle, card effect, or
by being destroyed) select one monster in the
opponent's Graveyard and remove it form play.
This card isn't very good, it's absolutely awful.
Remvoing things from your opponent's Graveyard is
usually a good thing. The problem here isn't
actually how bad this card is, it's just the fact
about 50 other cards do what he's trying to under
1/5 both Formats
|Anarchist Monk Ranshin fights the man by removing
cards in the grave from play. He's a sturdy attacker
your opponent will cringe at if they have anything
valuable in the grave. Ranshin is one of those cards
that are good, but not good enough, as you'd rather
play something with synergy. Having every card in
your deck work with the others is critical in an age
where every deck needs to be able to do everything.
And in most instances, you'd rather be using D.D.
Crow, to snipe that card when the opponent tries to
get it, while also intercepting Monster Reborn and
Call of the Haunted, etc. That way, you trick your
opponent into wasting their resources and relying on
a plan that backfires. It's a really, REALLY mean
thing to do to someone, but you're player 1 and he's
player 2 and it's only fate that you two hate each
other for a while.
Art: He's not very Mokey Mokey, maaan.
Fun Fact: The entire GX cast is on Mokey Mokey.
Tomorrow: A new drug craze called Mokey Mokey.
Today is Anarchist Monk Ranshin, which is a card
you’ve never heard of because it’s a card that’s
never run. When it is sent to the Graveyard from the
field by an opponent’s card (this effect restriction
seems to be popping up fairly often lately), you
remove a monster from your opponent’s grave from
play. So it’s like D.D. Crow if D.D. Crow was harder
to use. His only plus is that he’s got good base
attack, and that he’s a spellcaster, so you can run
him in the spellcaster deck that keeps getting
support but is never used. Honestly, D.D. Crow
Art: Om Nom Nom!
Here we have another super rare from Starstrike
Blast, and this one also has an effect that happens
when hes sent from the field to the grave by your
opponent. Anarchist Monk Ranshinis an EARTH
Spellcaster with 1800 attack and 100 defense. The
EARTH/Spellcaster is an awkward combination, but it
works since most spellcaster support doesnt care
about type. Anyway, his effect is some weird
combination of Sangan and D.D Crow. Whenever hes
sent from the field to the grave by your opponent,
he removes one monster in your opponents grave from
This is....interesting to say the least. He's an
1800 beatstick that can float by battle and then
when he bites the dust, he removes a monster from
Art- Looks like a zombie actually.
