Hello Pojo Fans,
The most hyped monster in the Nekroz deck: Brionac, and with good reason. This monster is the most sought after and the most useful to the archetype. Same everything as the original Brioanc, but a new take on its effects now that it has joined the Nekroz.
A searching card for any “Nekroz” monster (except itself) when discarded from your hand. Tremendous. Much like Clausolas searching any “Nekroz” Ritual Spell, Brionac is a must solely on its searching ability. With Manju, Senju, and Clausolas, Brionac likely will give you around 12 total searchers in the deck, and that's monsters alone! Then you have its ability to be Ritual Summoned with ease. Level 6 is easy to make. Nekroz Mirror can remove a Brionac already in the graveyard or Shurit. Then there's Kaleidoscope and sending a Goyo Guardian from the Extra Deck to the grave to bring out one Brionac, or a Quasar to summon 2 Brionac. This can become devastating for your opponent if set up correctly. You likely won't be summoning Brionac unless your opponent has done something involving their Extra Deck, and if they have, Brionac is a nifty way around many monsters that get effects off their own destruction or have protection against destruction. Brionac can even clear out Pendulum Monsters if they've been summoned from the Extra Deck, making it an even better card.
There's a reason why this card is the most expensive Nekroz, it's likely the best Nekroz out there. Play 3 if you want to run the deck, it's too necessary not to.
Until Next Time

Nekroz Of Brionac

Brionac is a pricy guy – the first ebay listing I see has him at £75, (or $113) for a single copy.  …Or possibly not… A quick Google search for “£75” lets me see that the most common thing for people to spend £75 on these days is apparently a “Lumie” alarm clock. I’m guessing most of you guys have alarm clocks on your phones, so you really have no excuse for not building Nekroz.

The effect that Brionac brings most prominently to the deck is the ability to tutor any one of his Nekroz brethren, which is funny both due to the deck already having an abundance of searchers more obviously because spare Brionacs are rather difficult to find in themselves difficult to find. In the context of a game Brionac’s search effect is actually just really good and you would be running 3 even if that was the only real effect and it was a 2300 vanilla on the field, which is good, because against a surprisingly large chunk of the Meta, that’s pretty much what he is when summoned.

That’s not to say the effect to bounce two monsters that were summoned from the extra deck isn’t good per-se. it’s just that it isn’t something you’re really going to find yourself doing much unless to force out Ritual Beast’s backrow or to clear some Dante’s offboard. On top of that, unless you’re using Cycle to summon him it’s often a tremendous waste trying to get him on board without it being a waste of resources - which is why the absolutely awful Exa-Beetle combo is used by a grand total of 0 good players for its competitive value. Brio can be summoned by sending a level 6 with Kaleidomirror though, which can be decent if you really need to get over Dark Law.
