Closing the week, as we're taking a day for the
coming holiday, and I wish everyone and very safe
and happy Independence Day Saturday! Ritual
Beast Tamer Lara continues to change things up a bit
as to what she does for Ritual Beast. She is
Wind and a Psychic, and like earlier in the week a
very low attack (100) but a nice defense clocking in
at 2000, despite only being Level 1. As should
be familiar by now, you have to Normal Summon these
cards to get their effect, but here, if you do,
you're able to Special Summon a Ritual Beast from
your Graveyard. I'm seeing this obviously best
as a mid to late game card, unless you're purposely
dumping, which you may be doing in this Deck.
Either way, she's the best of the three we covered
Hello Pojo Fans,
What Tamer Wen is to banished “Ritual Beasts”, Tamer
Lara is to those in the graveyard. Lara has a few
more ways to be Special Summoned than Wen, which
help to add another Ritual Beast for Special Summons
of their Fusion teammates. Once a Ritual Beast is
returned to your graveyard, or you put one there
yourself, Lara is live. Ritual Beast's Bond works
with her just like Wen, as well as the other combo
cards involved in the archetype. Ritual Beast
Ulti-Cannahawk sets up your graveyard for Lara, as
well as gives you the chance to search Lara out. Any
“Spiritual Beast” + Elder + Lara + any “Ritual
Beast” in the grave, suddenly the field is becoming
Lara is like Wen, not really a first-turn monster,
but good after you set things up.
Until Next Time
"Mean and Evil"
I like Ritual Beast Tamer Lara's artwork the best
of the Ritual Beast Tamer's, but Ritual Beast Tamer
Zeframpilica is better in every way, because she's
level 3 like Ritual Beast Tamer Wen, and has 1000
ATK, which becomes usable with two uses of Spiritual
Beast Apelio.The monster summoned through Ritual
Beast Tamer Zeframpilica's effect being destroyed
during the end phase does not matter at all, as
you'll have fusion summoned before then (and
Imperial Iron Wall activated in response will cost
you the game anyway if you have not outs).
Am I expected to say anything else? Explain how
Ritual Beast Ulti-Cannahawk only has to return one
monster to search if the other target for this
effects is special summoned by its other effect, the
reason for the deck's reputation of being Infernity
2.0? Mention that Ritual Beast Tamer Elder's effect
is continuous, meaning that players can still normal
summon a "Ritual Beast" monster in addition to their
normal summon/set even if the oppont activates
Breakthrough Skill in response to Ritual Beast Tamer
Elder's normal summon (the effect is gained
immediately)? Or should I perhaps remember the times
that Ritual Beast Tamer Wen often was an additional
option for a first turn play as long as one managed
to access Tempest Dragon Ruler of Storms? Maybe I
should point out that Ritual Beast Tamer Lara can
make Herald of the Arc Light with Ghost Ogre & Snow
Rabbit, although the "Ritual Beast" deck cannot make
use of its effect to search a Ritual monster/spell
when it reaches the graveyard... Ah well, if I had
to do any of those, I think I did now, sort of.
Playability: 3/5. Ritual Beast Tamer Lara is the
card that allows fusion plays later in the game in
theory; in practice she's the first monster to be
banished by Spiritual Beast Cannahawk as a new
target for defusing, and a second copy is never
