Back to the main COTD
After all of the years making really corny names for cards, why
Translation is often funny.
Anticipated releases from OCG have really
stiff rough names like "Bad-Strong-Monster-Man" and
then come out with silly puns as their actual name
Language differences I guess.
A Fish version of Madolche Anjelly, and the fact that it banishes
itself both prevents abuse whilst supporting the
Banish-Fish archetype that many of us have forgotten
Gishki Abyss – BP could add speed to this archetype
Mermail Abysspike and Abyssturge – While they are only two
targets for the deck, they get their effects on
Special Summons, so BP could work.
WindUp Shark – Better summoned from the hand, thouh.
There are lots of other Fish cards like Abyssal Kingshark, Royal
Swamp Eel and the Nimble series, but they suck, so
BP won't bring them very far.
Power – 3/5 – Has balanced effects and brings out a Fish monster.
Its targets however, aren't so powerful, so
this score takes a dive.
Versatility – 3/5 – Any
searcher with an ignition search effect will score
You can bring out whatever fish you want for the
Again, though, lack of target means lack of
4/5 ; It has fair restrictions such as "once per
turn" and the inability to search itself.
But these aren't very much imposing.
Card Advantage –
3/5 ; Largely a 1-for-1 that doesn't indirectly fuel
any other card advantage.
Speed – 4/5 ; Activates effect immediately on Summon (either Normal or
Traditional – 2/5 ; It
brings out Fishborg...
Advanced – 3.5/5 ; A strong searcher that
will have to wait for strong options.
Mechanic Design – 4/5 ; This card is fair and
balanced (no FoxNews pun intended).
Its a fast capable searcher with three
restrictions to prevent abuse.
– 3/5 ; Reminds me of the PC game Freddie the Fish
in the 90's.
And of course, the whole "princess" and
"beauty" obsession gaming companies have.
Good contrasting color choices, though.
This card is like Lonefire Blossom before most of the big Plant
support came out.
This is a Level 1 Fish with 0 ATK and DEF who’s
effect activates whenever it is either Normal or
Special Summoned, something that’s quite useful
effect-wise as you know that you are always going to
get it’s effect.
This opens up plays with One for One, Mother
Grizzly, Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth, Shark
Cruiser, Fishborg monsters and Where Arf Thou? Among
You could use Beautunaful Princess in Mermails to
Summon even quicker Mermail Abyssturge or Mermail
Abysspike, in Gishki’s to Summon Gishki Abyss or as
a support card in Sharks.
Because this cards effect is a Trigger effect, this
means that it’s effect is actually quite difficult
to stop, so common cards such as Fiendish Chain,
Skill Drain and Breakthrough Skill can do simply
nothing to prevent this cards effect from resolving…
Effect Veiler also can do nothing to prevent it as
Beautunaful Princess is Banished as cost.
Traditional: 1. Potentially this card could rate
higher since it can search out a potentially viable
target in Fishborg Blaster.
Advanced: 3. Myself I haven’t faced this in
competitive play, however it does seem to present
several possibilities for numerous Decks, all of
which could very well be extremely beneficial.
It’s Twofer Thursday to wrap up this week and one of
the two cards we have today is Beautunaful Princess.
Statwise it is a WATER/Fish which is want you want
with 0 ATK and DEF but it is a level 1 and it is
designed not to stay on the field, so it really
Effectwise, it has a nice trigger effect. When this
card is summoned you can banish this card to get a
Level 4 or lower Fish from your Deck barring another
one of these. Summoning a monster from the deck is
always good and you aren’t giving up anything major
just a weak level 1 monster. Since this is activates
when special summoned you can use cards like One For
One to get this out and use its effect. Of course
this is only useful if you play a lot of Fish
monsters and there aren’t any major fish archetypes
for this to play off.
Overall, if you play a lot of fish monsters this
card is a must, if not there are other cards that
card Special Summon WATER monsters that would be
Hello Pojo Fans,
Special Summon effect off of Beautunaful Princess
Normal or Special Summon immediately makes this card
good. Though only once per turn, this can be used
over and over as long as you have ways to summon it
again. One For One or Water Hazard to bring out
Beautunaful Princess, banish her for a Fish level 4
or below from your deck. Deck thinning good, even if
it's only one monster. Water decks will be running
Fish-types along their other WATER attribute
monsters, and there are five Mermail monsters able
to be brought out by this card. Gishki decks get a
boost to help with their consistency with this card.
The biggest upside to this card is because of its
effect resolves after it leaves the field will
protect it from Effect Veiler and Skill Drain.
Beautunaful Princess could be better if it could
target any level 4 or lower WATER monster, but it
still isn't a bad monster. There's some potential in
it if you are willing to go fishing.
Traditional-3/5- Fishborg Blaster legal
Double-time today folks. Beautunaful princess(god
I hate that name, I get tongue-tied saying it)
basically screams one deck: Mermails. You summon it
to the field and you can immediately banish it due
to it being a trigger effect to special summon a
fish-type out of your deck. This of course means
you're going after Pike or Turge which sets up
further plays. Now the cool thing is that Princess
works when special summoned meaning it combo's
really well with One-For-One to set up a potentially
immediate Bahamut Shark play, and thats nothing to
scoff at. Being able to put a Pike in defense in an
aggressive format isn't bad either for the sake of
LP protection(DYK: LP is now an official yugioh
Advanced 2.25/5 - Good, but it's not perfect. I know
people who have run these in mermails to modest
success but not enough to really warrant changing up
the deck to accommodate it but if you like to go
against the grain, this is definitely something fun
to try out!
Beautunaful Princess (geez, what a mouthful) is a
card that has applications, but is overall generally
outclassed. The card’s main use would be in Mermail,
where she can, upon summon, off herself to summon a
Pike from your Deck. This would be great if it
weren’t from the fact that the Deck already has
Mermail Abyssteus, which is overall superior and has
somehow (unlike in the OCG) avoided the TCG’s
banlist several times. Along with the Limiting of
Abyssgunde causing the Deck to shy away from combos
involving Abysspike and Abyssturge, there really
just isn’t much of a place for the fish in that
Deck, as there are much better options.
The card doesn’t really have many applications in
other Decks, as Mermail is the only commonly seen
Deck that utilizes Fish monsters. Overall, this was
a card that was seen as having potential but more or
less got screwed over by Konami hitting Abyssgunde
instead of Abyssteus.
We have a doubleheader for you guys today, and
they couldn't be any different. Let's get
started, shall we? The first one up to the
plate is Beautunaful Princess.
A level 1 Water Fish, her effect reads as such:
"When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You
can banish this card; Special Summon 1 Level 4 or
lower Fish-Type monster from your Deck, except "Beautunaful
Princess". You can only use this effect of "Beautunaful
Princess" once per turn."
If you are looking for a reasonable comparison,
think Lonefire Blossom under the sea. It's
stats are abysmal, but you aren't playing it for its
stats. A very interesting note is that how it
gets its effect off of being special summoned, so in
that regard, it is very good with a card like One
for One or Call of the Haunted. The fact that
it banishes itself means that Call of the Haunted is
most likely not to happen though. As it
banishes itself on summon as cost, you cannot negate
this effect with Veiler, Fiendish Chain, or
Breakthrough Skill, so that is a very big deal.
Now, what sorts of decks would one play this in, you
might ask? Well, one deck that comes to mind
is Mermails. With Abysspike and Abyssturge,
this card has plenty of targets. But to be
honest, my favorite deck to use this in is Gishki.
Why Gishki? Well, the fact is, this makes
summoning Gishki Abyss much more consistent, and
Abyss is one of the deck's most valued cards to
have. Also, in any deck that might play this
card, it makes Fish Depth Charge a much more
consistent and powerful card, in that playing 3 of
this alongside 3 of its target gives you six targets
in total, more than enough for 2 or 3 Depth Charges.
There are two downsides with this card that you
might not pick up on first glance. The first
is that you can only use her effect once per turn,
but you are mostly going to Normal Summon it
anyways. The second is that you may very well
draw all of the targets for her effect.
All in all, an incredibly solid support card for
Fish monsters, arguably more so for Gishki then for
Art: 3/5 It looks strange, but that is honestly what
they were going for.
