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 this week.

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 pretty packed.
 
Lara is like Wen, not really a first-turn monster, but good after you set things up.

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 played.
