Back to the main COTD
Unlike Maiden, it's first effect does not
activate when attacked. But on the upside, it
can be triggered via your own cards (Wonder Wand,
anyone?). It still will need a card from you
to trigger it, or else the opponent will try to
attack it. It replaces itself by searching
(+1). The secondary effect may seem
counter-intuitive at first, but if you return a
Blue-Eyes monster and then use this card's effect,
you can search 2 Blue-Eyes again. This is a
revenue neutral effect that you may want to use in
some circumstances, but it's not a strong effect
either.. All in all, while it's far from
perfect, it's still good support for the deck.
Hello Pojo Fans,
Priestess with Eyes of Blue is another LIGHT Tuner
monster within the “Blue-Eyes” archetype that we
featured on CoTD.
An upgraded “Maiden with Eyes of Blue”, Priestess
instead sends an effect monster to the grave to add
2 “Blue-Eyes” monsters with different names to hand
from the deck. You can search “Blue-Eyes White
Dragon” or “Blue-Eyes Alternative Dragon”. To get
the best bang for this cards first effect you'd have
to run at least 2 of each, which you likely will.
Second effect also involves a “Blue-Eyes” monster. A
one-for-one trade to get this monster back to the
field by shuffling back the “Blue-Eyes” you target.
Trading a 3000ATK monster for a Level 1 Tuner may
not sound like a good idea, but you could target
Priestess again and get back to your hand the
monster you shuffled back. Additionally, “Dragon
Spirit of White” is considered a “Blue-Eyes”
monster, giving you more options to send back (as
well as Phantom of Chaos and E-Hero Plasma).
Priestess has the added benefit of not going to the
grave when targeted to activate one of her effects,
but the idea of shuffling back your 3000ATK monster
to get her back isn't as tantalizing. If you could
use her second effect during either players turn it
would be much better.
Until Next Time,
Priestess with Eyes of Blue is not good. She is a
Level 1 Light Spellcaster-type Tuner monster with 0
Atk and 0 Def. She has all of Maiden's stats with
none of Maiden's awesome effects.
When Priestess is targeted for cards or effects, she
makes you discard an effect monster to search 2
Blue-Eyes monsters with different names from your
Deck to your Hand. Hand advantage is good, but
Maiden can be targeted for battle and still get her
better effect. Priestess' second effect is from the
grave. If you have a Blue-Eyes monster on your side
of the field, you can return it to the Deck to
Special Summon Priestess from the grave. To top off
the craptastic cake that she is, you can only use
one effect per turn, and only once that turn. Don't
bother with this one. Either effect makes you lose
field presence for a not good enough effect.
Score: 1/5 Too situational to be useful.
Art: 3/5 Looks too watery.
