I think we've got a decent week here folks, today
opens with Blizzard Princess. Let's see here...Water
(not great), Level 8 requiring two tributes (worse
yet), Spellcaster (actually not bad). Anyway, you
can Tribute for this card by only tributing one
Monster if said Monster is a Spellcaster, of course
this card has to Summoned in face-up Attack
position. One tribute for 2800 attack isn't a bad
thing at all. During the turn Blizzard Princess is
Normal Summoned, your opponent cannot activate Magic
or Trap cards. Decent enough honestly, but not worth
playing this card, even in a Spellcaster Deck I
Blizzard Princess has everything you want in a
monster except for a lasting effect. With 2800
attack, ease of summoning, and the ability to stop
your opponent from activating spell and trap cards
for a turn, Blizzard Princess can be very effective
for one turn. After that, it can still give you
great field presence.
It is really just good in Spellcaster decks as you
need a Spellcaster to tribute to make it a one
tribute monster. Running cards like Gravekeeper’s
Spy, The Tricky, and Apprentice Magician give you
the tributes that you need to summon the Princess.
What brings the rating down on Blizzard Princess is
the fact that its effect negation only lasts one
turn and that Spellcasters are not even close to
being top tier right now.
A new week...a bunch of new cards. I really,
really like this card. You can tribute this card by
using one spellcaster. That's good. When you do, the
turn you do your opponent cannot activate spells or
traps that turn, really good. You can use this
in almost anykind of spellcaster type deck, but I
can really see this one shine in a Gravekeeper deck.
The Tricky can get you this card out on your first
tuen as well. This card is a pretty much a sure
winner in a pure spellcaster deck, just not the best
topdeck if you are living card by card.
Hello and welcome to another
week of reviews! Now that my Spring “Break” (pshh)
is over let me review today’s Fan Requested card:
Spellcaster/ Water/ Lv 8/ 2800 ATK/ 2100 DEF
“You can Tribute Summon this
card in face-up Attack Position by Tributing 1
Spellcaster-Type monster. During the turn this card
is Normal Summoned, your opponent cannot activate
Spell or Trap Cards.”
Today we have a 1 tribute
monster for only spellcaster decks
“save me for your big plays”. It being a 2800 beat
stick is pretty decent in itself, considering the
only real thing that can get over this would
probably be BLS in the competitive seen, has some
potential if you can drop it onto the field safely.
There are some other options that this card has in
spell caster decks and that is “Magical Dimension”.With that card, you can drop this monster
anytime you have a spellcaster on the field, granted
you cannot have its effect activate if it is special
Overall, if you can hit a big
play the turn this thing is tribute summoned you
don’t have to worry about Mirror Force or
Pros: Decent effect and good
Cons: Its effect doesn’t
activate to its general summon.
"You can Tribute Summon this card in face-up Attack
Position by Tributing 1 Spellcaster-Type monster.
During the turn this card is Normal Summoned, your
opponent cannot activate Spell or Trap Cards."
We start another mixed card week with a very
interesting one. BP is a very interesting card which
acts like an opponent-only, 1 turn Cold Wave.
There's a few ways to get Spellcaters onto the field
to tribute 1 for her, so getting the big gal out
shouldn't be too difficult. Great stats and effect
and definately should be splashed into any
Spellcaster deck. If you can get multiple monsters
out on the same turn, she can come out normally as
well. Do note that her effect only triggers when
she's NORMAL summoned.
We have quite...I'll say, the most random assortment
of cards this week. It's as if we had a number
generator pick out our cards for the week. No, wait,
no that's not true... Blizzard Princess was a viewer
request. And now that I take another look, all of
these cards are pretty famous GX manga cards that
have never been reviewed before. Anyway...
This card is from all the way back from GX manga. She
hails from a trio of "Blizzard" monsters that can
shut down the opponent's actions: Blizzard Dragon
freezing monsters and Blizzard Warrior controlling
the opponent's next draw.
Now, granted, her first effect proves to be more
effective than her second one: it gives you the
strength of Dark Magician of Chaos for a single
Tribute. Keep in mind, however, that you get almost
the same deal with Frostosaurus or even Superancient
Coelacanth with Legendary Ocean out. You will never
use her outside of Spellcaster Decks, and thus her
effectiveness is based off of how well she already
functions in said deck. Off the top of my head, the
only Spellcaster archetypes I can expect seeing used
(from most likely to least likely) are Gravekeeper's,
Spell Counters, and Dark Magician, perhaps Monarchs.
GK already has Gravekeeper's Visionary going for
them as a beastly one-Tribute monster, and he even
has his own protection effect to boot, so GK really
has no need for the Princess.
Any other Spellcaster Deck...well... Blizzard
Princess doesn't offer a whole lot for her plate.
Yes, she has brawn and she's immune to BTH, but the
problem is you really don't find you NEED her that
much. If you miss Giant Trunade/Cold Wave that much,
she's supposedly decent. Finally, she can be
summoned with Magical Dimension. Rather a waste,
considering she won't get her effect and can be
Normal Summoned with a single Tribute anyways, but
still, 2800 ATK off an ice cube mace ain't shabby.
Not to mention that, but Spellcasters have been
getting some pretty good support as of late; equip
Princess with Gagagashield and your opponent may be
in a bit of trouble.
And she could've made it so well as an Ice Barrier,
but then again, she was before that time.
Niche Decks: Any Deck that uses a respectable amount
of Spellcasters and that you think can utilize
Princess well. If I could call a best-case scenario
for Princess, it would be to Special Summon Chaos
Sorceror, Banish someone, exchange Sorceror for
Princess, then Banish said Sorceror to throw down
Black Luster Soldier without fear of freak Traps.
Aesthetics: 5/5 She's rather pretty. Toka Tennoji
from Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu. High-five if you
get the reference.
