Didn't we just go over this card is awful and seems
like something from the LOB days? Oh, you did see
this guy in video games. Not only is Dark Artist
very weak, at 600 and 1400 respectively, his effect
is negative. If attacked by a Light Monster, his
defense is halved during Damage Calculation. Sorry,
but we're not wasting time trying to find a home for

Wrapping up this week we have Dark Artist, one of
the many cards that was in Japan for years and we
are only getting now. Statwise there isn’t much to
say it is a DARK/Fiend with mad stats even for a
level 3. Dark Artist’s effect is even worse, it is
being attacked by a LIGHT monster and there are
loads of them being played, its DEF is halved. Yes
its already terrible DEF gets even more, so it
wouldn’t protect itself from anything playable.
Overall, play any other DARK/Fiend than this.
Happy Friday everyone! We end the week with one
of the OCG premiers from LVAL, Dark Artist.
Read this. Now look at this review. Now read it
again. Now look back at this. If you're still
bothering to consider running this, sell all your
cards and collect stamps. I had to read it like
five times myself to make sure I wasn't
hallucinating how awful it is. Just.... What.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
For those who don't know, this card has been out
in Japan for over 10 years but never released in
English, much like “Swordsman from a Distant Land”.
This card was horrible then. It's horrible now.
You would figure with such weak stats, it would
have an effect to compensate for it, but it's effect
only serves to weaken it further. It could've been a
strong monster with an “Achilles heel”, but it's
just an Achilles heel with an Achilles heel.
Collectors might enjoy the nostalgia for a
minute, other than that, it's purely garbage. Warm
up your fire place with it.

In the king's opinion, which is the only one that
matters, art is a thing that endures. The king
doesn't think highly of artists that can't create
works that last or can't create works that can be
preserved. With that said, one should easily be able
to discern my stance on this awful artist that has
been brought to the card reviews this day.
Hello and welcome to Terrorking's review of Dark
The card is King Garbage's court jester. See, for
this card to even gets its effect off it needs to be
attacked. However, that effect alters DEF... that
means this effect is useless in this game since
battles are determined solely by ATK points (when
both monsters are in ATK position.) Furthermore,
this card's effect only affects Light monsters, so
having a useless effect compounded by the fact that
it only affects a particular attribute, and pathetic
stats means this card's art won't last to your
Is this a joke? I'm not even going to review this
card....it's that bad. The best thing it has going
for it is that it is a 3 star, dark fiend...Its
stats are pointless and its effect is probably never
going to come in handy.
