Back to the main COTD Page



This card from last year was probably suggested for a COTD because it's a tech idea against Kozmos.  I simply feel like Imperial Iron Wall is a better alternative because it's longer lasting and can cripple the opponent out for the entire game rather than a turn.



Artifact Lancea closes the week...Lancea, although this clearly an Axe, not a Lance, but I digress.  Has a neat enough trick to be Special Summoned when destroyed, albeit from the Magic/Trap zone, and it can be Set there, so that's good.  The attack and defense both are kinda meh at 1700-2300 respectively.  You can tribute it from your Hand or face-up from your Field to keep both players from removing Monsters from play until the next turn.  Useful against certain Decks, useless against just as many.  It's a quick effect though, so that's a plus.  Earth fits the Archtype well, and Fairy is good too.  But still, this particular Artifact just isn't very good.
Rating:  2.25/5 
Art:  3.75/5


I think it is fitting that we review an Angel-type card today. As a New Yorker, it's difficult to talk about today and what today means.
But, 14 years later, I can review cards and hopefully you enjoy that.

Artifact Lancea is a Level 5 Light Fairy-Type monster with 1700 Atk and 2300 Def. It's never really ok to have a single tribute monster with less than 2000 Atk, but at least the Def is good. I doubt anyone would tribute for this, but it is an option.

The effects are typical for an Artifact monster. You can set this monster as a Spell and if it's destroyed and sent to the Graveyard during your opponent's turn, you can Special Summon it. However, this card is going to be sided or main decked because of its utility as a Hand Trap. While it's face up on the field or in your hand, during your opponent's turn, you can tribute Lancea to stop all banishing for the rest of their turn. I'm glad it doesn't specify a phase the way Effect Veiler does. Lot's of decks need to banish to get their combos and win conditions going. The reason you would run this instead of Imperial Iron Wall is the surprise factor, to avoid Denko Sekka, and to avoid Mystical Space Typhoon. Or you could run both, probably 2 of each, and really stop a ton of effects.

Score: 3/5 It's a good side deck option for many decks.

Art: 5/5 I love the artwork on all the Artifact cards. I am also biased toward Light and Angels.

Good Luck!



One more day till new “My Little Pony” episodes!!! ….....I mean, hi.

It seems like we're going backwards with this final card of the day. Does anybody out there even play Artiface decks? And if so, do they use this one? I mean, he looks cool and all, but the only thing really going for him is the 2300 DEF points. He's easy to get on the field with his effect, but unless you're gearing him up to be XYZ'd, then perhaps he can make for a good shield for your LPs?

Meh, I just don't see that much going for this artifact. ….Still looks cool though. I guess.

Final Score: 1/5 (Now bring on the ponies!!)
