Can we say yuck? In a theme that needs life point
boosts to create combos and keep the effects of its
monsters running, Bergamot provides trample… and
that’s pretty much it. Moderate attack boosts and
trample effects are as antiquated as flip monsters
not named Scapeghost or Pot of the Forbidden. As
stated yesterday, any Aromage that doesn’t boost
life points or provide instant plusses is a huge
liability to an already weak strategy. As stated
yesterday, Aromage is inherently impossible to
succeed over time sans crazy new support (meaning a
lot more cards as good as Jasmine), but using
Bergamot won’t do the theme any favors.
I’ve seen combos with Black Garden that can OTK with
Aromages using Bergamot, but that’s hard to pull
off, predictable, it goes against the Aromage theme.
Overall, I can’t possibly imagine Bergamot will ever
see true competitive play. It just doesn’t have
anything going for it, and it’s slow in a game that
Future Potential: 1/5
Bergamot has some things going for it. It
gets temporary attack boosts and inflict piercing
damage, insofar as you're using other cards to gain
LP. But piercing just isn't nearly as
important to the game now as it was 10 years ago
when players used to set monsters instead of Special
Summon them. It's a tribute monster doesn't
provide card advantage. It doesn't float.
It's slow (effects don't kick in till battle phase
onward). Aromage might want to use just 1 copy
as a big beater for damage, at least until they get
better higher level monsters.
Aromage, this time of the Bergamot variety, closes
the week. This is a Level 6 Monster, and of
the Fire attribute...I like Fire for an attribute
for a Plant even less than Water. Fire kills
about 99.9% of Plants, so that seems rather odd to
me. 2400 attack is the norm for a Tribute
anymore, so good enough there. There isn't a
great deal to say here. If your Lifepoints are
higher than the opponent's, this card has Trample.
If you gain Lifepoints, (once a turn again), this
card gains 1000 attack and defense points.
Quite a boost, and it's worth noting that it lasts
until the end of the next turn of your opponent, so
that's great. 3400 attack with trample isn't
anything to scoff at. Honestly, I feel (or
would like to see) these cards catch on.
They're just screaming to be incorporated
into/around a Fire Princess burn/LP Deck.
Aromage Bergamot is a Level 6 Fire Plant-type
monster with 2400 Atk and 1800 def. This Aromage
gives plants piercing battle damage. Do other aromas
put monsters your opponent control in defense
position? If they do, then this card is good. Can
Aromages be summoned easily without tribute? If he
does, then this card is good. Do Aromages gain Life
Points? Yes, yes they do. Aroma Bergamot can become
insanely powerful until the end of the opponent's
turn every time you gain Life Points. 3400 Atk and
2800 Def are boss stats, and that is just from one
Life Point gain. Run 2 in Aromages to push for
