Lady of the Lake, despite practically only supporting the Knights theme, is a bit of an oddity.  With a grab bag of effects, and being a Light attributed, Aqua Monster, and with only 200 attack (but a nice 1800 defense) for a Level 1, she's a bit of a mystery.  She's also a Tuner, and can only be used to Synchro Summon a Warrior type Monster.  If you use her to Synchro Summon, she's removed from play.  If you Normal Summon her, you can Target and Special Summon a Noble Knight from your Graveyard, so long as it's a Normal Monster.  If she's in the Graveyard, you can target a Noble Knight you control, and reduce it's Level by 1, and if successful, you Special Summon her from the Graveyard.  She's actually more useful than she may originally seem.  She's obviously a combo card, and however/whatever you're using her for, she should generate you an advantage.

Lady of the Lake gives Noble Knight Decks the ability to Synchro summon. As we have already seen, the Noble Knight theme can summon Rank 4 or 5 Xyz monsters quite easily. With Lady of the Lake, we can summon Level 5 and 6 Synchro monsters. The Lady in Noble decks can do some really cool Synchro summoning.
You can get Lady of the Lake in the graveyard or on the field by using One-For-One or Foolish Burial. As we discussed last week, we have two Noble Knight Monsters that become level 5 monsters when attached with a Noble Arms card, Medraut and Borz. If you do the Medraut play with Borz you will wind up with two level 5 monsters on the field. At this point you could go into one of the Artorigus Xyz monsters or we could Synchro for tomorrow’s card, Ignoble Knight of High Laundsallyn. If we have Imperial Iron Wall in play or another Lady of the Lake in the grave, we could Synchro for a T.G. Hyper Librarian first then the Ignoble Knight to end up with two level 5 monsters which we could also Xyz summon with and an extra card in hand.
As you can see, Lady of the Lake gives us a Synchro ability to add to the Xyz ability it already has. Lady has another effect that works well with Noble Knight Artorigus, so you could play them in a deck with Rescue Rabbit to give you more options and synergy. In the end, though, we are still dealing with combos and equip cards. As a fun deck to play at locals I would recommend building this deck, however at the YCS level, you may want to stick with a more explosive deck, even though Dragon decks have been severely crippled by the last restricted list.

A short week of new cards before we start the top 10 cards of 2013 hopefully on Wednesday. Today we look at Lady of the Lake, a tuner for Warriors but it is really for Noble Knights.
Statwise, it is LIGHT/Aqua which is a strange combination but it is still LIGHT like many of the Noble Knights so ir does help. 200 ATK isn’t great but this is a level 1 Tuner so it isn’t supposed to be on the field for too long. 1800 DEF though is quite good for a level 1.
Lady of the Lake has a condition that she can only be used as Synchro material for a Warrior Synchro Monster. Also if this is used for a Synchro Summon it is banished, just so you can’t use its Graveyard revival effect over and over again.
Lady of the Lake’s main effect both involve special summoning monsters in your graveyard. Either you special summon a Noble Knight when this is normal summoned or you can special summon this card if you controi a level 5 Noble Knight. Either way both effects scream; “Use this card for get out Ignoble Knight of High Laundsallyn”, which to be honest is the only real reason you would play this card.
Overall if you are playing  Ignoble Knight of High Laundsallyn then this is a must for your deck. If you are not, don’t bother.

Hey Guys today we are going to be doing Lady of the Lake a disappointing card out of Shadow Specters. Lady of the Lake is another failed attempt at Konami trying to make Noble Knights competitive.

While it's effect in text not only makes it a junk synchron and a level eater it just seems to not have synergy needed for a deck that requires equip spell cards to operate. There are a couple of good plays using this card, but one has to remember; You can only use it for a synchro summon of a warrior type monster so it is extremely limited to how many plays you can make with this card.

Lady of the Lake

Howdy there, sorry for not doing last weeks been working so much this Christmas season, back to it then, today's card is Lady of the Lake, what is there to say she is probably the most popular card from Shadow Specter, the support going into Noble Knights is quite ludicrous. Though it is well received, I believe the archetype is quite fun and I really enjoy the flow of the deck. Reminds me of the good ole days of Warrior Tool Box, sort of. She straight out makes plays and allows Nobles to go both Synchro/XYZ paths, it will be interesting to see if she makes Nobles more competitive next year.

Traditional: 1/5 (Honestly don't know how well Nobles could do here)
Advanced 4/5 (2 Different routes to pull out a Synchro, she is a without a doubt a bad ass)

Art: 5/5 Gorgeous, nuff said.


Welcome back from the weekend everyone.  We continue our coverage of the new Noble Knight cards today with their tuner, Lady of the Lake.
This card is pretty decent, with two ways to bring out your Synchro monsters.  First you can just normal summon her, letting you special summon your vanilla Artorigus from the grave for an instant synchro.  Alternatively, you can summon her from the grave when you control a level 5 or higher Noble Knight monster, reducing that monster's level by 1 (and putting it at level 4, since there are none higher than 5), allowing you an instant synchro summon that way.  Regardless of how you do it, after she does your tuning, she leaves the game.
Now, the downsides: first, she can only summon warrior XYZ monsters.  Your top 3 choices are pf course the Noble Knight synchro, X-Saber Wayne, and Scarred Warrior.  Don't use Scarred Warrior; Ignoble Knight is a way better monster.  Wayne isn't too bad, he can set you up for a game-finishing move in the right situation.  Generally though you'll want to get your Ignoble Knight set up and rolling as fast as you can.
Second, her stats are mediocre.  200 ATK isn't going to win any battles, though at least the 1800 DEF can hold up to a reasonable amount of monsters.  If you have to play her without syncing, just set her and be patient.
So how to use this?  My personal preference is to Foolish Burial my Artorigus to the grave, then just summon him back out with the Lady.  However, the same play works if you have a Medraut or Borz on hand; Foolish the Lady, then revive her after you use Borz or Medraut's effect to gain as much advantage as possible.
And that's about all there is to it.  This card, like any good Tuner, is an enabler; she won't impact the game much directly with her own effect.  It's the end-state that matters.  We'll cover the Ignoble Knight card tomorrow, the real powerhouse that makes this card worth playing.
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 3/5

Thanks for reading!

Lady of the Lake
This is theme specific support & helps support that theme.  I don't really see  any rating for this card outside of a deck that doesn't take advantage of its ability to plus one off a normal Noble Knight monster.  With cards like Plaguespreader Zombie & Dragunity Phalanx doing the tuner thing better, I don't even see a reason to attempt to splash this card into other synchro orientated decks.
4/5 in a Noble Knight deck
