Cyber Petit Angel
This week, we look at the base Cyber Angel cards. I
skipped yesterday’s card of the day, which was the
basic ritual spell for the theme, and got right to
the meat of the deck. These reviews will be made in
anticipation of the future release of many powerful
ritual monsters and spells that exist in the OCG,
but have not yet arrived on other shores. And I
include both the two newest Cyber Angel rituals and
some non-Cyber Angels as well.
Before diving into all the ritual monsters, we look
at the little angel that could. Cyber Petit Angel is
just silly in its ability to search several times
per duel. The best part about Petit is that normal
summons in Cyber Angel decks come at a premium. A
common build has maybe six monsters you can normal
summon (3 Petit and 3 Manju), so there’s always an
opportunity to summon Petit and get a plus before
going off. But this can only go so far. What really
makes Petit Angel so opportunistic is his harmony
with Ritual Sanctuary, which lets you shuffle spells
to summon fairies from the grave. And since Petit
gets the plus no matter how he’s summoned and he’s
such a low level, there’s the chance to summon him
nearly every turn. If he had been level 1, it would
have been broken beyond reason, but level 3 would
have severely hampered the combo.
What else can be said about summoning searchers that
hasn’t been said a million times? If you run Cyber
Angels, you run this in triplicate, no debate. And
seeing as Cyber Angels are only going to get better
soon with the eventual release of Vishnu and
Nasateiya, I see a fantastic future for this little
Future Potential: 4.5/5
Cyber Petite Angel
It's a typical searcher.
It can search via a Special Summon, like a Soul
Charge perhaps, but it's rare you'll find a
consistent and economical way to Special Summon it.
Having to Normal Summon this card in Attack Position
leaves it vulnerable, but keep in mind you'll likely
tribute it before your turn is over.
Manju is better. It has
better stats and it does the same thing, except you
can search other Ritual monsters and not just Cyber
Angels. But more consistency can't hurt, I
Hello Pojo Fans,
Cyber Angels have a lineup of Ritual Monsters we
will be covering this week that have effects that
rival Nekroz in terms of playability. It starts
today with Cyber Petit Angel.
This little guy searches for you whenever it is
summoned. Already better than Manju, Senju or Sonic
Bird because of that. Manju-like, able to gather
your Ritual Spell for the deck or any Cyber Angel
monster. Being a Level 2, you won't be able to One
For One this card, but there's a host of LIGHT
support and Fairy support that makes up for that.
Use this as fodder for the Ritual Summon as well the
same turn just to set up another summon of it next
turn to search again. Once per turn prevents mass
searching, but one search a turn should be more than
enough. You can Manju and Cyber Petit in one turn
and use those two for a Ritual Summon.
Solid searcher for the archetype, though unlike
Manju, Senju, and Sonic Bird, it lacks ATK, while
the previously mentioned had standard ATK for
Until Next Time
Yesterday was the main play for Cyber Angels.
Today is the easy button summon. Cyber Petit Angel
is a Level 2 Light Fairy-type monster with 300 Atk
and 200 Def. While technically not a Cyber Angel
monster, it can search any Cyber Angel monster or
Machine Angel Ritual when it's summoned. Cyber Petit
Angel can only do that once per turn, but there are
no restrictions to how it's summoned. Normal Summon
is the easy button summon to get a quick search of
the most useful cards in the deck. Unfortunately,
there are no other effects and this only works in
Cyber Angel decks. If it searched any Ritual Spell,
then it would have scored better. Oh well. I still
believe there will be more support that this card
can search later.
