Today's card is Valkyrie of the Nordic Ascendant,
aka, the Odin tuner that's not Vanadis. Valkyrie is
only two stars instead of four, and she can only be
used for Odin, but she comes with her own set of
tricks. First off, she can be used with non-nordics,
unlike Vanadis, such as Phantom Skyblaster or
Gravekeeper's Spy. Also, if you normal summon her
while you control no other cards and your opponent
has a monster, you can remove two nordics from your
hand to special summon two 4star 'middle finger
tokens', and make an instant Odin. Normally a minus
3 is a bad thing, but pulling out a turn 2 Odin
could give you instant game. All in all, I think
Vanadis is better, but Valkyrie is good in her own
way, and definitely deserves to be run in Odin
Tanngnjostr of the Nordic Beasts, winner of the
"Least Pronouncable Name in Yugioh" award, is one of
the key pieces to the Nordic deck. With 800 ATK and
1100 DEF, he's not sticking around long. But as a
level 3 EARTH Beast he becomes amazing. Firstly,
when any monster you control is destroyed by battle,
you can Special Summon Tanngnjostr from your hand.
Second, any time he's switched from defense to
attack position, he Special Summons a Nordic Beast
from your deck.
You can use this effect to summon Guldfaxe of the
Nordic Beasts and summon a level 7 Synchro, like
Black Rose Dragon. Or, you can summon Tanngrisnir of
the Nordic Beasts to set up an Aesir summon. Since
Tanngnjostr can be summoned with Super-Nimble Mega
Hamster or from your hand, you should be able to
trigger this effect very easily.
