El Shaddoll Grysta
El Shaddoll Grysta CAN stop Pendulum Summons and
this is of course where it’s greatest use will lie
and is the sole reason to consider running this
It can also be used to form a decent lock with El
Shaddoll Winda since even Negated Special Summons
count towards the Special Summon limit that Winda
The biggest problem is however that there are
precious few viable Fire monsters that the Shaddoll
Deck can use, although useful options could include
Metaion, the Timelord or Volcanic Shell.
Grysta can also help Shaddoll’s to get rid of a
problematic Lava Golem when playing against a Deck
such as Chain Burn.
What is a more viable option though will be to use
Shaddoll Core, and then once it is released,
Nepheshaddoll Fusion. These options can and will be
useful to Summon any of the Shaddoll Fusion
Elements, not just El Shaddoll Grysta.
And Super Polymerization can be used can be used
against something like Lonefire Blossom or Wind-Up
Zenmaines to disrupt an opponent.
Traditional: 2.75. There are simply too many ways to
push through effects such as this here, and would
not even slow down an opponent from Special Summons
even in the slightest.
Note: This is the FINAL review in which Traditional
Format scores will be required, however I will from
time to time provide a Traditional rating for any
cards that I feel will benefit by being compared
next to the best of the best cards available.
I believe that scoring some cards here can help to
put into perspective how good some very good cards
can or will actually be. That score I feel can also
be used to put into perspective the Advanced Format
score in some situations I feel.
Advanced: 3.5. This cards best use is going to come
about by using it alongside Winda or if you use it
against a Pendulum Deck such as Qliphort’s.
Just the 1 copy of this should be more than
sufficient in the Extra Deck but I feel that 1
should be there.
