Today's card is Guldfaxe of the `Nordic Beasts.
Guldfaxe has two really good things going for him.
First he's a four star tuner, and second he's a
Nordic Beast, meaning he has some of the best of the
Nordic support out there. This card does have a
special summoning ability, and it really isn't that
hard to pull off, especially if your opponent has
you pinned down with a Shi-En or another synchro
monster. However, Guldfaxe doesn't really need that
ability to make him explosive. When Guldfaxe is
combined with Tanngnjostr of the Nordic Beasts It's
pretty much a Black Rose Dragon for you when ever
you need to get out of a tight situation.
Guldfaxe of the Nordic Beasts, a part of the trio
of Nordic Beasts that make up most Nordic decks. For
a level 4 tuner, his stats are about standard. 1600
ATK is alright, and 1000 DEF is the usual. LIGHT is
nice, and Beast is a good thing. If your opponent
controls a Synchro Monster he can be Special
Summoned from the hand, not unlike a Cyber Dragon.
Being Special Summonable is a nice bonus, but it's
really not the reason you play Guldfaxe. You play
him for his synergy with Tanngnjostr of the Nordic
Beasts, and also because Guldfaxe is able to summon
Thor, Lord of the Aesir.
If you're looking for a generic level 4 tuner,
Guldfaxe isn't too bad of a choice either. While
Mist Valley Shaman has slightly higher ATK, Guldfaxe
can add a little speed to your Synchro Summons when
drawn. He can also work well in Beast decks looking
for a tuner.
