Back to the main COTD Page




Well the countdown is over, its a new year, and the CotD carries on.  Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile is a rather unremarkable card.  Its a Level 2 Synchro-Tuner Monster, Fire attributed, of the Reptile breed with 800 attack and 1400 defense.  The stats are bad but that's not so bad as it helps the effect go off.  When sent from the Field to the Graveyard, all Monsters your opponent controls lose 500 attack.  Easy to accomplish, not worth your time or resources.
Traditional:  1/5 
Advanced: 1.5/5 
Art:  3/5 


Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile
FIRE/Reptile/Synchro/Tuner/Level 2/800/1400
1 Tuner + 1 non-Tuner monster
When this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard: All monsters your opponent currently controls lose 500 ATK.

A new year and a new week of new cards, first off is Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile, a new Synchro Tuner monster.

With Formula Synchron currently Limited, this is clearly designed to be a replacement for it, it is a level 2 Synchro Tuner which requires 1 Tuner and 1 non-Tuner monster but despite being Limited Formula Synchron is the superior card.

While it has better stats than Formula Synchron, this lacks the thing that made Formula Synchron so powerful, its speed. This has no draw effect or the Synchro summon effect; instead it has an ATK reducing effect. It does have some pros, it doesn’t matter how it goes from the field to the graveyard and the reduction is permanent, but 500 ATK is a bit low and it only effect the monsters currently on the field.

Overall, an alright Synchro Tuner and it is designed as a replacement for Formula Synchron, but this replacement is nowhere as good as the original.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5


Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile

Howdy there, sorry for not posting the rest of the top 10 of 2013 work got really busy Christmas time in a toy store, keeps you busy. Today's card is, Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile, the new formula synchron his effect isn't really that great but truthfully I haven't seen much testing of this guy since Formula Synchron is still preferred. I am not sure if they ever will come out with any new Synchro monsters like Quasar/Nova, but this helps the decks out that bring em out to attempt another try if Formula is gone.

Traditional: 1/5 (Not much to say)
Advanced: 2.5/5 (Potential is always nice, but not always wanted)

Art: 4/5 Really cool Artwork, magic bearded dragon oooo ooo -waves hands magically-


Welcome back from the weekend everyone. We start off the week late with Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile, a level 2 Synchro monster from Shadow Specters.

This little fella, as you may have noticed, is similar to a card that came before him, that being of course Fomula Synchron. They have similar (low) stats, but you should never have either on the field long enough for that to matter. No, the only word on either card that makes them what they are is "tuner" right after the type. Both cards allow you to summon the best of the best as far as high-level Synchro monsters go, usually monstrosities such as Shooting Star and Shooting Quasar Dragons.

So with both of these doing the same thing, which should you use? Well, let's look at who's restricted. Formula Synchron is at 1, and this dinosaur is at 3. Formula Synchron lets you draw a card when he's summoned, and this guy... Reduces the attack of all your opponent's monsters by 500. Oh boy!

Now me personally, I'd rather draw the card than reduce my opponent's stats. First of all, you can't even guarantee they're going to control anything. I can always draw from my deck. Second, if you so choose, Formula Synchron can perform his Synchro Summon on your opponent's turn. I'd rather not, but you never know. This guy doesn't give you that option.

However, until Formula Synchron creeps back up off the restricted list, I wouldn't turn this guy down. I'd run Formula first, but this makes a good second Level 2 Synchro Tuner if you want to use it. If you're one of those people playing Lavals, I'd give this guy a look. If you have a deck that can "only somtimes" make something like Shooting Star, if the planets are aligned, just keep your one Formula. He's the better card, but this is a nice substitute for a second copy.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
Art: 3/5

Thanks for reading!


 Purails, the Purple Pyrotile
This little sucker has a lot going for him, and he is a welcome addition to the level 2 synchro tuner monsters we have at this time. He is a nice little tech you can incorporate just to crush your opponent that much more. Purails is a set up for much larger monsters, he reminds me of Salacious Crumb from Jabba's Palace in Star Wars, he won't ever get the  job done by himself, but he can be a helpful little pest. Use him to get over your enemies while your setting up your own finishing monster. 
Formula Synchron is another option to be considered, as it allows you to draw, but Puralis can help leave your opponent vulnerable to attack over. Use it when you want to add insult to injury, otherwise there are more secure options available to you.
Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5(Better options exist, but Purails is a sidekick, and he's a lot of fun)
Mechanic Design: 3/5 (Just a little flip of the bird to your opponent essentially, pretty funny)
Art:  4.5/5  

Human Puppet

Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile
If I'm going to synchro summon into a 2 star monster, I'm going for Formula Synchron.  This COTD generates no advantage and its effect only works if it is sent to the graveyard which means that to actually gain any use it must be sent to the graveyard in one way or another. Then to top this off its effect is very lackluster and it only has 800 attack.


Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile
Puralis is a LV2 Synchro which essentially only be summoned with 2 LV1 monsters (one of them being a tuner).  The main competition it faces is Formula Synchron which nets you a free draw and can be used as a tuner itself.  But even when you don't compare this purple creature to better alternatives, it still doesn't hold it's weight.
It's stats are very weak, and a 500 ATK decrease is nothing big, especially if it doesn't even activate immediately, but depends on it being removed from the field.  Since it affects multiple monsters, it does best against swarms, yet why would I waste two weak creatures on one weak creature when dealing with a swarm?  Sometimes, you can tribute it (but I would rather have the remaining defense position LV1 monster for protection than this weak effect).  If you're waiting on it being destroyed, by then it's way too late.  
Had it's ATK been like 1500 and it's ATK decrease effect been 1000, it would've been good.  So, it had the right idea - just poor stats.  But as it stands, I just don't see any merit to using this card.  It's garbage.
Traditional: 1/5 (Bad)
Advanced: 1/5 (Bad)

Hello, my dear guppies. I see you have once again made the fabulous choice of reading my review, and as your reward, you shall be granted the gift of enlightenment.
Dragons, they breathe fire. Cool dragons breathe fire: Alduin, Smaug, Deathwing, Red-Eyes Black Dragon et cetera. This particular monster is so awful that despite looking like one, he is not a fire-breathing dragon. Yes, welcome to the review of Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile. It's name just rolls off the tongue, does it not? Alliteration, always amusing.
This card is completely and utterly eclipsed by Formula Synchron. What could have somewhat salvaged this is if it had 200 DEF so you could at the very least Rekindling it, but alas, it does not. Formula Synchron gives you card advantage, while all this does is take a measly 500 ATK from the opponent's monsters. Hardly relevant.
This is usually where I tell you how to counter this, but you won't need to because you'll never see it.
Traditional: 1/5 (I do not give zeros, but this is effectively a 0.)
Advanced: 1/5
