Kamion, the Timelord
Kamion, the assassin of the Timelords. As I
understand it, Kamion does not target, so that is
really exceptional, especially in today’s meta. If I
had to rank Kamion, I’d say he’s 2a and Lazion is
2b, as they both sit behind the superior Zaphion.
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.
Being an earth monster is always a plus, but Kamion
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 during formats when untargetable
bosses are ruling at any given time.
Future Potential: 2.5/5
Hello Pojo Fans,
Kamion, the Timelord is the new EARTH Timelord from
While all the other Timelords do mass removal of
some sort (with the exception of Sadion), Kamion
cycles back only one card your opponent has and does
a tiny bit of burn damage. Sure, your opponent can't
chain anything to the effect, but is it really worth
it to run Kamion to cycle back one card and do 500LP
damage? You can run a host of different cards that
will destroy and do damage, or simply destroy the
targeted card. This Timelord sadly isn't very
practical to me and likely wouldn't see much play
even in its own archetype.
Until Next Time
Kamion, the Timelord is the most interesting of
the bunch because it is excellent with non-targeting
removal. At the end of the Battle Phase, shuffle one
of your opponent's cards back into the deck. Then
you can burn them for 500 damage. Honestly, the
shuffling is the most important aspect here. It's
why Erebus is so good. All the other aspects of this
Earth Fairy are typical of these Timelords. This is
one of the best for being able to remove any card,
and the effect can't be responded to. Kamion has
high splash potential in other decks that don't mind
wasting a Normal Summon.
We look at the final new Timelord of this week, as
next we look at the old Timelord and a great support
card for Timelords. The last new Timelord here is
probably one of the best. Today we look at Kamion,
Go to my Zaphion, the Timelord review for the
standard Timelord stuff.
Kamion allows you to put a card your opponent
controls back into the deck and deal 500 damage to
your opponent if Kamion attacked. The best part is
that neither player can respond to this. This effect
is guaranteed to clear out a threat your opponent
has and deal some burn on top.
You can argue between this and Zaphion on who is the
best Timelord... until the others are released from
the anime world with no changes to their effects. In
my opinion, I'd say Kamion is better as it is more
versatile and you are guaranteed to get rid of
Advanced Rating: 4.75/5
Today's review for Timelord week is Kamion,
another level 10 fairy, but this time of the earth
variety. Still with 0 attack and defence though.
Kamion comes packed with the standard package of
Timelord effects. He can't be destroyed by battle or
effects, nobody takes battle damage from attacks
involving him, you can normal summon him without
tribute if you control no monsters and once per turn
during your standby phase he shuffles himself back
into the deck.
Kamion's unique effect though, activates at the end
of the battlephase when he battles. He shuffles 1
card the opponent controls into the deck and burns
the opponent for 500 damage. That's actually pretty
ok. Short of Quaking/Drowning/Storming Mirror
forces, Kamion's attack will go through. And you'll
be able to remove a card from the field while
hitting for a small amount of damage. What makes
this good, is that Kamion's effect doesn't target.
So he gets round a lot of protection effects.
