Back to the main COTD
Nothing gets me amped up more than a 1900 ATK
monster with a good effect. Valkyrian Knight can
stand on it's own with it's 1900 ATK and your
opponent cannot target other Warrior-type monsters
for attacks, they gotta get through this guy first.
When Valkyrian is destroyed by battle and sent to
the graveyard, you can banish one other Warrior-type
monster and this card from your graveyard to target
one level 5 or higher Warrior-type monster in your
graveyard and special summon that monster. One of
the best monsters you can special summon would be
Colossal Fighter. Also teaming this card with other
Warriors such as Marauding Captain and Command
Knight could cause a headache or two. Even teching
it in a Six Samurai deck could be useful for getting
out Grandmaster, Great Shogun and Legendary Shi'En.
The minor downside is that Valkyrian Knight takes
some little setting up to do to get the
full potential, but with the 1900 ATK, it can hold
its own for a while, or just sit in the grave until
you need it.

Next we have Valkyrian Knight, who already gets to a
good start by having 1900 ATK for a level 4 monster
so he is already a decent beatstick. Also he has an
effect to protect his fellow warriors and his effect
benefits from him being destroyed. So far so good,
but is his effect any good?
Well, you can banish this card and 1 other warrior
monster to special summon a level 5 or higher
Warrior from your grave. A good effect but a bit
costly and not really that useful in warrior decks.
Most warrior decks tend to largely ignore high level
monsters since they focus on low level, high ATK
monsters and they tend to use either Xyz monsters
(so level effects have no meaning) or Colossal
Fighter who has a built in reborn ability.
Overall a nice idea, maybe good as another warrior
beatstick but his man effect doesn’t really offer
much for warrior decks.
