Back to the main COTD
It can be Special Summoned easily by Farmgirl
banishing itself, so as an easy to summon 2300
beater. The fact that it destroys a Spell/Trap
card and replaces itself when destroyed means it
will increase your overall card advantage by 1 atop
of having a good field presence.
Kozmo Sliprider, which vaguely, yet I guess very
differently (does/doesn't) resemble an X-Wing enough
to not be sued by Disney. (These cards overall have
very beautiful artwork). Anyway, Level 5,
Machine, Light...nothing wrong here so far. 2300
attack and 800 defense are rather low for a Level 5,
but there are good points to be seen here. If
Normal or Special Summoned (thank God as I hate when
cards only get effects if they HAVE to be Normal
Summoned) you get to target and destroy a Magic or
Trap card on the Field. Much better via
Special Summon as it's a +1 instead of wasting a
Tribute for a 1-for-1. Oh, but in addition
(remember these guys revolve around removing
themselves and each other and returning from play)
if you remove this card from play, from your
Graveyard, you get to Special Summon a Level 4 or
lower Kozmo Monster from your Deck. He's
another solid asset to his team, most definitely.
Hello Pojo Fans,
The “Kozmo” monsters replace each other and find
their way back with relative ease even when
banished, and Sliprider is no exception. Able to be
Special Summoned with either Farmgirl or Goodwitch,
a free spell/trap destruction whenever summoned is
always beneficial. Decent ATK, but bad defense for
level 5 that isn't a Monarch. Has the pluses of
being a Machine-Type and LIGHT Attribute with the
While you break even off the destruction effect if
targeting your opponents spell/trap, you can target
one of your spell/trap cards like Kozmotown to give
you another resource. Combo this with Kozmotown and
go through all of Kozmotown's effects before
summoning Sliprider and destroying Kozmotown to get
another “Kozmo” card to your hand. Or combo with
Farmgirl at the End Phase of your opponents turn to
destroy a newly set spell/trap.
Until Next Time
Kozmo, Kozmo, Kozmo. There are
4 monsters currently in the Kozmo lineup and we have
reviewed 1. Guess what? Kozmo Sliprider is number 2!
Are you excited? I know I am!
Let's look at the raw stats.
Kozmo Sliprider is a Level 5 Light Machine type
monster with 2300 Atk and 800 Def. It has good
enough Atk for a single tribute monster. Light is
always good with Honest. Machine and the ease at
which this can be special summoned during the Battle
Phase make Limiter Removal relevant again. After
Limiter Removal destroys this ship, its effect to
Special Summon a lower level Kozmo monster can
activate, but we'll get to that later. Finally Level
5 Machines warm my heart because of their synergy
with Cyber Dragon. I wonder if there is a Cyber
Dragon / Galaxy Soldier deck that would utilize
this. In any case, two Kozmo Sliprider equals 1
Cyber Dragon Nova which will eventually equal Cyber
Dragon Infinity which is an awesome XYZ monster that
you want whether you know it or not.
So the stats are good.
Coincidentally, the effects are good as well. In the
Kozmo deck, if this is destroyed and sent to the
Graveyard, you can banish Sliprider and Special
Summon a lower level Kozmo monster from your deck.
In any deck, when this is Normal or Special
Summoned, you can target and destroy 1 Spell or Trap
on the field. That is great. If you go the normal
route, this effect is a one for one, the monster you
tributed for their spell or trap. Or you can target
your own Kozmotown to get the free search of its
destruction. Or you can be very sneaky. Activate
Call of the Haunted during your Battle Phase to
target Sliprider. Use Sliprider's effect to target
Call of the Haunted which will destroy Sliprider by
an effect letting you banish it from the graveyard
to get the Special Summon effect still during your
Kozmo's love having a clear
field to operate successfully. This monster helps
with that and can help with the OTK. It's great for
Kozmos and good for other decks. The combo potential
in any deck is easy because the effects can be
activated multiple times in the same turn. It's only
rare, go get 3 of these.
Score: 4/5 Level 5 Machines
with good effects are good.
Art: 4.5/5 Red and Gold are my
apparently, this ship is referred to as Ruby Shoes,
as Farmgirl/Dot (or Glinda, I can't tell) is its
rider. Does she have to click it three times to make
not the strongest Level 6 monster, Sliprider does
come with his own MST when summoned/special
summoned. And like I said before, you can combo him
with Kozmotown for recycled farming goodness- get
banished for its own effect, get new card, Kozmotown
effect returns him to the hand (at the cost of LP).
For more search fun, you can use Sliprider's MST
effect to kill Kozmotown and activate its own search
only downside is its ATK/DEF. 2300 ATK won't do much
against other high-level monsters, but if you can
work around that then I see no reason not to
maindeck this guy.
