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
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
Until Next Time
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.
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.
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
need to get over Dark Law.
