Beatrice, Lady of the Eternal

2 Level 6 monsters / You can also Xyz Summon this card by sending 1 "Burning Abyss" monster from your hand to the Graveyard, then using 1 "Dante" monster you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.) If Summoned this way, the following effect cannot be activated this turn. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; send 1 card from your Deck to the Graveyard. If this card in your possession is destroyed by your opponent's card (by battle or card effect) and sent to your Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 "Burning Abyss" monster from your Extra Deck, ignoring its Summoning conditions.

Beatrice, Lady of the Eternal is a Rank 6 Light Fairy-type XYZ monster with 2500 Atk and 2800 Def. The name is actually bad because Lady of the Eternal does not include Burning Abyss so all the Malebranches will die if they are on the field together. Well, at least the defense is good. Part of the balance of Burning Abyss is their lack of high Atk monsters. 2500 Atk is the same as Dante and Vergil, but this has a higher summoning cost of 2 Level 6 monsters. Fortunately, Rank 5 and Rank 6 effects make up for the lack of brute strength on their monsters. 
 
The alternate summoning method for Beatrice is to send a Burning Abyss monster from your hand to your graveyard while a "Dante" monster is on the field. You would get all of Dante's materials and the effect of whatever Burning Abyss monster you sent to the Graveyard. I like it. At the very least, this is a better option than Downerd Magician to sit on top of spent Dantes. I also like that this is an official XYZ Summon for recursion effects in other decks. 

The on field effect of Beatrice cannot be used if summoned the alternate way, but that's not the end of the world. For the cost of an XYZ Material, you can send any card from the Deck to the grave. That's huge. Lavaval Chain is banned for the same effect. And, you can activate that effect once per turn during either player's turn. More than likely, your materials will be getting their effects upon hitting the grave and whatever you send will be useful as well. I believe you can detach Dante to send Cir to the Graveyard and use Cir's effect to get Dante back on the field for another Beatrice. I will try to coin the phrase of "Beatrice loops" for this process. 

Beatrice's last effect activates in the Graveyard if she is destroyed and sent there by an opponent's battle or card effect. If that triggers you can Special Summon 1 Burning Abyss monster from your Extra Deck and ignore its summoning restrictions. Vergil is an excellent choice to get rid of problems. Obviously another Dante on the field would make for decent field presence. If 2 Beatrice's hit the grave, I believe you get 2 Special Summons, so have fun with that. So this is the only "real" way to get Pilgrim to the field, but he's still not worth the Extra Deck space. Still, it's good to have options, and Beatrice, Lady of the Eternal has many great options. 
 
Score: 4.5/5 Very Well Balanced. 
Art: 5/5 Very Nice.

Beatrice, Lady of the Eternal

 

This is a super pretty card. It’s also a difficult card to review. On the surface, it seems to be pretty nifty and a solid startup monster, but as with every single card in the game, just a slight adjustment in the effect can make or break a card. Crush Card errata anyone? And Beatrice unfortunately has a sentence that makes me cringe.

 

“If summoned this way, the following effect cannot be activated this turn.”

 

Bummer. And I say that with feeling, because Beatrice has all the ability in the world to make Burning Abyss flow. But if you’re going to drop a card and give up Dante to summon her (because let’s be honest, you’re certainly not going to summon her using 2 level 6 monsters), it’s a killer to just let her sit there like a stump during your turn. I’m well aware that her cost probably activates a Burning Abyss effect and that she can use her effect when the opponent starts his next turn, but that doesn’t make up for it. Yu-Gi-Oh is all about big plays now. Consistent big plays every turn. 10 years ago, you could set a Magician of Faith and a Mirror Force and feel safe and cozy. Today, if you take a turn that does nothing but set a couple cards, you’ve probably already lost the duel. So Beatrice unfortunately loses most of her potential. Even her last effect doesn’t make up for it in my mind, because opponents have a bevy of cards at their disposal now that can deal with her without destroying her. And at 2500 ATK, she’s not exactly a world-beater.

 

Now, on the bright side, Beatrice does have future potential; she is still a generic rank 6 and sending any card from the deck to the grave can be very nice. There’s a reason Lavalval Chain got the ban hammer and will probably never see the light of day again. Should a new theme be released that takes advantage of both level 6 monsters and the grave, Beatrice would be a valuable addition. I definitely see a future for her in fairy decks.

 

Advanced: 3/5

Future Potential: 3.5/5
