Lazion, the Timelord

 

As I mentioned yesterday, there are several decent Timelords. And unlike yesterday’s card, Lazion is among that group. With the ability to take out a crucial part of every player’s deck, Lazion’s ability to shuffle the opponent graveyard is probably more brutal than even Zaphion’s effect. But the kicker that makes Zaphion better overall is that Lazion is usually a monster that’s exceptional just once. After that, he’ll be shuffling one or two cards per summon while dealing mediocre damage.

 

So in the Timelord engine, how many should be run? Well, by my reckoning, a combination of four to five of any of the lesser Timelords is probably best. Along with three Zaphion, three Time Maiden, and any other combination of cards you utilize to make the best use of them, they start to add up fast. It’s probably best to have a toolbox of singles and rely on Zaphion the most, especially once link monsters are added to the extra deck.

 

Lazion doesn’t have that “it” factor like Zaphion that allows him to be a nice tech option in other decks. So, for the time being, his main deck potential is limited to his own archetype. But he’s an excellent side deck option, especially in the current environment where archetypes like Infernoids are still running wild.

 

Advanced: 3/5

Future Potential: 3/5

We continue this week with one of the more interesting Timelords in Lazion.
 
Go to my Zaphion, the Timelord review for the standard Timelord stuff.
 
Lazion is one of the Timelords with two unique effects, both helped Z-ONE beat Aporia in the anime, but might not do the same here. If Lazion attacks, you shuffle all your opponents cards in the graveyard into the deck. This helped Z-ONE prevent Aporia from drawing last card in his deck to give him the win. In real life, putting certain cards back to the deck can be good or bad. Thankfully, the Battle Phase is optional. The second effect deals 1000 damage to your opponent if they draw. This effect let Z-ONE defeat Aporia after he didn't draw the card he needed. In real life, burn is nice, and it can finish the game here.
 
This is a pretty solid Timelord, worth being a tech choice.
 
Advanced Rating: 3/5
