It's Halloween, and we're taking a trip down memory lane, looking at quite the old card, fairly well themed for the day, in Summoned Skull. Summoned Skull was a very playable card for quite a while. Even though he has no effect, he remained one of the few one tribute Monsters who has 2500 attack. He wasn't really outclassed until The End of Anubis was released. I still wouldn't fault anyone for using one in a pure Fiend Deck. For nostalgia value alone, for anyone who's been playing that long, this card should hold a special place in your heart.

LIGHTNING STRIKE!!!

I am told that our card of the day, “Summoned Skull” was the second card that was ever reviewed on POJO 11 years ago. So why are we reviewing it today? Shoot! I don’t know but it is Summoned Skull so what the heck. I remember the day when Summoned Skull was a boss monster that was played with $30 Gemini Elf’s. A one tribute 2500 attack monster was tough to beat back in the day.

Today we have 5 different one tribute normal monsters with 2500 attack or more, all with different attributes and types to fit into the deck type of your choice. If you need a normal monster that is a Dark and/or Fiend-Type monsters then Summoned Skull is for you. If all you need is a high attack normal monster then Frostosaurus or Trance the Magic Swordsman is the monster of choice. Cyber-Tech Alligator and Wattaildragon are your other choices.

The issue that we have with normal monsters, despite all of the countless support cards they have, is that they are just too slow and do not give you enough advantage to control the game today. The power of effect monsters is just too great for normal monsters that depend on support cards.

As far as one tribute monsters go, effect monsters like Monarchs, Vanity’s Fiend, and Jinzo can cause more problems to your opponent than a high attack monster can. If you can get two Summon Skulls on the field then you could make some pretty powerful Rank 6 monsters, but it will take some resources and combo’s to pull that off plus, Summoned Skull is a dead card in your hand and a bad top deck card as you need a tribute to summon it.

Summon Skull’s time has come and gone, but its nostalgia and memories will live on.

Summoned SkullDARK/Fiend/Level 6/ 2500/1200
A fiend with dark powers for confusing the enemy. Among the Fiend-Type monsters, this monster boasts considerable force.
(This card is always treated as an "Archfiend" card.)
Happy Halloween Everyone!

Today we are looking at Summoned Skull, the second Yu-Gi-Oh! Card of the Day ever! Statwise Summoned Skull is a normal level 6 monster with 2500 ATK, Which is very good for a level 6 and 1200 DEF which is bad.
Effectwise well it doesn’t have one, however Konami have finally added a piece of text that mentions this is an Archfiend card. So at least that ends that confusion. Summoned Skull is a good beatstick card and of course there is more Archfiend and fiend Support out these days but it is still just a normal beatstick.

Overall an iconic card that sadly has been largely overshadowed by the emphasis on effect monsters these days. Probably best suited for Yugi character decks.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
