Back to the main COTD
And the final day of Great Wall of Trump week.
This iconic card was used by the Para Dox brothers
in the original anime. It turned the game into
a really interesting board game, but when the card
came out, it was standard normal monster. It
had the best defense, and being searchable by Giant
Rat was a plus. But it wasn't even competitive
back then, much less now. As offensive stats
matter more than defense. So, it pretty much
sucks now. On the bright side, it would
probably make the best wall out of everything we
listed. Intruders would be trapped in a maze
forever and, I guess, whoever is able to make it out
of the maze has more than earned their citizenship.
I have no regrets dedicating a whole week to Lord
Trump and his walls. We need to make Yugioh
3/5 - Back then
1/5 - Now
We end Wall Week with Labyrinth Wall. It’s Level
5 and has 0 ATK and 3000 DEF.
…And that’s it. Nothing else. It’s not very good.
Happy Wall Week, everyone.
It’s easy to dismiss this very old and dated
monster, but every now and then, something odd pops
up that makes use of previously-thought-to-be trash
cards. Case in point: Jack’s Knight. No one would
have ever imagined it would be used in top decks,
until along came the right cards in the right
situation. And Jack’s Knight happened to be the
level 5 light-attribute normal monster with the
highest attack available for Brilliant Monarchs.
Well Labyrinth Wall is pretty much the exact same as
Jack’s Knight with 3000 DEF instead of 1900 ATK. And
it’s one of only two normal monsters with that kind
of defense for its level. You never know what might
come along one day, especially for the
underprivileged rock types. I just know that while
spells and traps like yesterday’s COTD have very
little hope, there’s always a small beam of light
for monsters, even though it may dwindle as more and
more cards are released. This is especially true for
normal monsters, since the available pool grows at
an extremely small rate.
Future Potential: 1.1/5
It's a Normal Monster. It has 3000 Def. It's
Earth. It's Rock. It's Labyrinth Wall. That's almost
all there is to say here. Normal Monster support
could get this wall out to block something. Or your
opponent could just chose not to attack until they
have a way to get rid of it. But wait, it's also
Level 5, so it requires one tribute to Normal Summon
Labyrinth Wall. Not worth the tribute since it just
delays the game instead of winning you the game.
Further more, Magical Labyrinth and Wall Shadow are
terrible. Don't run those either. The best defense
is a good offense and Labyrinth Wall's offense is 0
Atk. Or just run Waboku to stall.
