All righty friends, over the next three weeks,
we're going to be looking at cards from Return of
the Duelist! (We'll get to Ban List cards after
that, I promise, in response to the e-mails I keep
getting about that). Today we look at Block Golem,
who is a fun little card for a Rock player. This is
a Level 3, Earth attributed Monster, with 1000
attack and 1500 defense, but you probably won't use
this guy for anything but his effect. If you only
have Earth Monsters in your Graveyard (no other
type, you're still allowed to have other cards) you
can tribute this card to Special Summon two Level 4
or lower Rock Monsters (from said Graveyard). No
restriction as to attack or defense position, I like
that. The Monsters effects can't be activated in the
turn you do this, A +1 is almost always a good
thing, and it is here, most definitely.
It's time for the top 10, err, 11 cards of Return
of the Duelist. The All mighty, knowing and golfing
Pojo has acquired out lists of top 10 cards from the
set and smushed them into a list of 11. See how
mighty his hole-in-one-ness is? Ok, at the bottom of
the list, is a card that i might have overlooked,
Block Golem. This guy makes Rock types decks a lot
stronger and playable. An EARTH/Rock type, with 1000
ATK and 1500 DEF, those stats don't fend off too
many monsters. If all the monsters in your graveyard
are EARTH, you can tribute this card you control to
target 2 level 4 Rock-type monsters, except Block
Golem. Special Summon those two monsters. But their
effects that activate on the field cannot be
activated this turn. Nice. Right off the bat,
Barrier Statue of the Drought is the first Rock
monster I would consider as one of the targets. Heck
you can fling Rock monsters at your opponent with
Rock Bombardment to inflict 500 damage for sending a
Rock Type from your deck to your graveyard. That
combos well with Block Golem. Get those monsters out
of the graveyard and you can Xyz or even synchro for
whatever you need. Do watch for cards like DD Crow
and Torrential Tribute. This is a great card for
Tomorrow: Number 10!
Hey all. Sorry to have been absent, but had
issues with my car commiting suicide on me when the
timing belt broke (wrecking the engine) after
spending $1700 to fix all the breaks, steering, 2
tires and the accesory belt wheel, so I had to junk
it and deal with fixing a replacement car, so wish
me luck with this new one. Anyways, we're on a top
10 countdown, so let's get to it.

I want to make a Legos joke, but I don't want to
be a blockhead, so I'll skip it. BG belongs in a
rock deck, and a Valkyrion deck is a good one to add
this guy into as it can bring back two of them to
play, allowing for the the big guy to hit the field
a little more easily. He can also beef up a Megarock
Dragon deck, or he can be used in a Giga Plate the
Earth Giant deck. Any card that lets you gain more
field presence is always a good thing and this guy
does it better than most, even though the monsters
lose effects that trigger when they hit the field.
Despite BG limiting the summoning to fellow
Rock-type monsters, he's still a great card for the
A very welcome addition to Rock decks, and gives
the deck something it could never do before, and
that is being able to make an xyz off of one card.
Rocks are generally known for playing similar to a
stun deck, and now has even more fire power. Thr
draw back is really nice to see on a card, dont want
a card being too broken, and it being specific makes
it exclusive. A little more support, and this type
may actually be able to go somewhere!
