Closing Number week is Number 44:  Sky Pegasus.  This is a Rank 4 XYZ Monster, who is XYZ Summoned with two Level 4 Monsters.  We have a Light attributed, Beast type Monster, with 1800 attack and 1600 defense, both rather unremarkable for Rank 4.  Light gives you playability with Honest, so that's a good thing with low attack.  By discarding an XYZ Material from this card once a turn, you can target a face-up Monster your opponent controls and destroy it, unless your opponent pays 1000 Lifepoints to negate this effect.  This is one of those cards (because of the second half of that effect) that gets better as the game goes on, namely if your opponent doesn't have the Lifepoints to negate the effect.  He's an interesting enough Monster, but I don't see it getting much play.

Traditional:  1.5/5 
Advanced:   2.5/5 
Art:  5/5

We end this week with one of the weakest Xyz monsters to come out in Number 44: Sky Pegasus. Pegasus was not originally created as a week monster but when it went from the anime version to a TCG card, it was watered down to only have one effect. In the anime version, it could equip itself to another Xyz monster to give it a second attack, and burn your opponent for the amount of life points they pay. At 1800 attack and 1600 defense, Sky Pegasus has some pretty weak stats that can only be made up with effects. Unfortunately, we only get one of the three effects it originally had even though it burns your opponent for 1000 life points instead of 500.
The only positives that I see with Number 44: Sky Pegasus is that it is a Light/Beast monster and can be used with Honest and Horn of the Phantom Beast to pump up its measly 1800 attack. It also burns, so a Chain Burn deck may also be a possibility. You could also use Sky Pegasus with Flame Tiger and Chain Dog to make the summoning easier or even in Heraldic Best decks.
Quite frankly, any deck you use it in is probably tier 2 or 3 and you simply do not have the space for Sky Pegasus when you are probably already using Cowboy with 2400 defense for your burn.

Okay today we are reviewing another Number monster. It’s coming from the new Number Hunters booster pack but is it actually good? Let’s see!!

Number 44: Sky Pegasus
Attribute: Light
Types: Beast/Xyz/Effect
Rank 4
2 Level 4 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; destroy it, unless your opponent pays 1000 Life Points to negate this effect.
ATK/1800 DEF/1600

So what can this card do for you? It’s an 1800 attack rank 4 monster that can destroy an opponent’s monster once per turn by just detaching a material. That sounds pretty good but wait there’s more!! If your opponent wants they can just negate this monster’s effect by paying 1000 life points. This part of this effect completely ruins this card’s chance for playability. It lets your opponent decide whether or not your effect goes through. Another issue with this monster is that Number 50: Blackship of Corn does this card’s job better. The only time Number 44 is even semi useful is if your opponent has less than 1000 life Points. This monster also has terrible stats compared to other rank 4 monsters. So overall this monster is really bad and I don’t think anyone should play it. It does have some pretty cool artwork though.

Advanced: 1/5
Traditional: 1/5
Art: 5/5


Number 44: Sky Pegasus
2 Level 4 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; destroy it, unless your opponent pays 1000 Life Points to negate this effect.

Finally this week we have Number 44: Sky Pegasus one of the "Legendary Numbers" from ZeXal II. Unfortunately Sky Pegasus isn't Legendary at all, in fact it's quite bad. First off, is its weak stats for a Rank 4, but generally weak stats means a powerful effect. Sadly Number 44 doesn't have a powerful effect, all it can do is destroy 1 of your opponent's face-up monsters, something that has been seen thousands of times already, but it gets worse. If your opponent pays 1000 life points they can negate the effect, so you have wasted a material and are still stuck with a weak Rank 4.

Overall a terrible number, poor stats and an effect that the opponent can easily negate without needing to waste his own cards on, there are loads of better Rank 4s out there, play one of the instead.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5


Hello Pojo today we are doing Number 44 Sky Pegasus. Now Sky Pegasus reads:

2 Level 4 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; destroy it, unless your opponent pays 1000 Life Points to negate this effect.

Now I have mixed feelings about this card seeing that my opponent can negate this by paying 1000 Lp. Players have always been wasteful with paying LP especially if it benefits them in a huge way (being able to keep their monster.) so I'm not too sold on this. A good thing about it is that this card is a generic rank 4 in a game where rank 4's can be summoned with ease. It's an ignition effect so it can only be used on your turn so I don't see anything too big with this. Just another decent generic card to add to the rank 4 pool.

Trad: 1/5 (Wouldn't even bother)
Advan: 2/5 (Has potential, I just don't see it)

Short and sweet: Winged Horsey gives your opponent the choice once per turn, to let you blow up a monster or to take 1000 damage. Yeah…anything that gives your opponent a CHOICE is the opposite of being powerful. An argument can be made that it forces your opponent to take the “lesser of two evils” but in most scenarios the opponent would rather give up 1000 LP (barely evil at all, a mild inconvenience) than lose a monster. Oh and you can’t even destroy facedown monsters, not to mention if the opponent doesn’t have any faceup monsters, you can’t even activate your effect to deal 1000.

When you use this card, expect it to only add an extra 1000 damage; Pegasus is NOT a reliable way to destroy monsters! It is only truly useful if there is a monster you cannot get over and the opponent cannot spare any more LP to protect it, but if you’re in a situation where the opponent cannot spare 1000 LP to protect an important monster, usually there are better things you can fool around with. 

Similar monsters I like a lot more are White Sky Horse’s fellow Rank 4 monsters Number 50: Blackship of Corn and Gagaga Cowboy. Blackship will remove the monster (technically doesn’t destroy, which is usually good) AND do the 1000 damage. An advantage Sky Pegasus has is that it can target any faceup monster, but as I said before, don’t rely on Sky Pegasus to actually destroy things. An advantage Pegasus has over Blackship is that Pegasus can still attack after using its effect (however, Blackship tends to be summoned in Main Phase 2 anyway which makes it less of an issue). Gagaga Cowboy only does 800 damage with his effect, but the 200 difference compared to Pegasus usually isn’t very significant. Similar to Pegasus, Cowboy can also jump over big monsters, but Cowboy puts the choice in the player’s hands, not the opponent’s. Pegasus can’t even fit into a Beast Deck because Diamond Dire Wolf outclasses it there. I would only ever truly consider Pegasus if I wanted a Light version of Blackship.

I like Pegasus’ anime effect a lot more, as it gives the Number archetype more support:

You can target 1 “Number” monster you control; equip this monster on the field to that target. While this card is equipped to a monster, the equipped monster can make a second attack during each Battle Phase. When your opponent pays Life Points: Inflict damage to your opponent equal to the amount of paid Life Points. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; destroy it, unless your opponent pays 500 Life Points to negate this effect.

Trad: 1/5

Adv: 1.7/5 (Pegasus is trying to do accomplish too many jobs and it can’t even do them all at once, so you’re best off splitting the jobs between two monsters: Use Diamond Dire Wolf for destructive power and Gagaga Cowboy for effect damage, and if you really wanted both at once then Blackship is a more efficient way as long as you want to blow up a monster under 2100 ATK)

Aesthetics: 2.5/5 A more practical explanation is that  (four) is pronounced “shi,” and shi can also be  (willpower) and  (king). Together, shishi can mean loyalist or patriot. Ironically, that is also how you can spell lion, which would make you think it would be more appropriate for Lion Heart. Additionally, in 1934, two bridges were built in 1934 in the city of Normandy in France: the Bénouville Bridge and the Ranville Bridge. During World War II, Germany was able to take over France.  This was part of Operation Deadstick, which was a part of Operation Tonga, which was a part of Operation Neptune, which is more commonly known as D-Day. To prepare for tomorrow (D-Day) on June 5, 1944, the British 6th Airborne Division (who used Pegasus as their symbol) started to take over these two bridges as part of Operation Deadstick in order to free France from German control. After that, Bénouville Bridge was renamed Pegasus Bridge. Otherwise, I must question what kind of name is “Sky Pegasus.” A pegasus is a horse with wings; of course it belongs in the sky.

Riddle: It begins eternity and ends space and time. It dwells in the middle of every plus sea and finishes every rhyme. What can it be? The letter e.
