Gladiator Beast Tamer Editor 

New Gladiator Beast stuff is great, but man, the three new cards in Battles of Legend come right before the new link rules, and that makes for a very sad day. Gladiator Beast Tamer Editor highlights the pack, and we review it first on this fine Monday. 

The two new Gladiator Beast fusions take what we have always known about contact fusion and throw it all in the garbage. What used to be a curiosity is becoming more of a norm: the “ignoring its Summoning conditions” bit. Tamer Editor and Andabata both have this wording, allowing for practically endless reach into the extra deck… or at least at first glance. But remember, with the new link rules, these kinds of shenanigans are no longer in the cards, pun intended. It’s shocking, to say the least, that new Glad Beast support comes right on the heels of new rules that makes them nearly impossible to use effectively, not to mention during a format rife with copies of Ghost Ash that shuts down any and all Glad Beast support. 

Before links, this card would have been incredible, the main play being to use a combination of any two of Augustus and Noxious to summon him and then use his effect to summon Gyzarus, or going backwards, using Gyzarus’ effect to summon two Augustus and possibly going into two Tamer Editors. I especially loved that Tamer Editor granted other Glads the tag out ability, thereby allowing monsters like Heraklinos to tag out when before he couldn’t. 

But it’s all for not. The link format has installed a new master rule that makes Glad Beasts defunct without one or two new easy link monsters to serve as go-betweens. Will they ever get that? Probably one day, but until then, the Gladiators are even more dead than they used to be. 

Advanced: 4/5 (pre-link) and 2/5 (post-link – his effect is DOA)

Future Potential: 1.5/5 


Gladiator Beast Tamer Editor:
We are back this week, continuing to review cards from Battles of Legend: Light's Revenge. To kick us off this week, we look at a card that should be amazing for its archetype, but some changes ruin it. I am talking about Gladiator Beast Tamer Editor.
Tamer Editor requires 2 Level 5 or higher Gladiator Beast monsters to summon, and just like all Glad Beasts, you shuffle the materials into the deck instead of using Polymerization. This is pretty easy with Augustus and Noxious. This card cannot be used as Fusion Material, which is nice to balance this card out so you can't use this guy and his effect to summon another copy and loop it. Once per turn, you can summon a Gladiator Beast Fusion from the Extra Deck, except Tamer Editor, ignoring the summoning conditions. I'll talk about this in a bit. At the end of the Battle Phase, if your Gladiator Beast monster battled, you can shuffle it into the deck to summon another Gladiator Beast from the deck. It can be the same as the monster you send back, but this is likely for Gladiator Beast monsters that don't tag out, and you likely won't be playing those.
This card really should be amazing for Gladiator Beasts, but at the end of this week, the new Link Starter Deck will be legal, which will kick off the new rules. If you can easily summon a Decode Talker or Missus Raidant, then Tamer Editor can use his effect. Otherwise, you just put a Tamer Editor in the Extra Monster Zone to sit there, since you cannot use his effect to summon a Fusion Monster. This is sad, cause without the new Link rules, Tamer Editor is amazing. Now, he is just ok and the new rules hurt his score.
Advanced Rating: 3/5


Starting off this week of Light's Revenge cards is Gladiator Beast Tamer Editor, a level 8 dark Beast-Warrior Fusion. Weighing in at 2400 attack and 3000 defence, Editor is more suited for defensive plays than aggressive based off its stats. But its effects make it more aggressive in pair with other beasts.
Editor is summoned by returning 2 level five or higher gladiator beasts to the main/extra deck and doesn't use polymerisation. Editor itself can't be used as fusion material as a condition. And he comes sporting a pair of effects.
First up, once per turn, he can special summon any Gladiator Beast fusion monster from the extra deck, but as it doesn't count as a fusion, it wouldn't be able to be revived from the grave later. But it's still a really strong ability, especially coupled with Editor's second effect.
As at the end of the battle phase, Editor can tag out ANY Gladiator Beast that battled to special another from the main deck. And that is just too good. There are a few Gladiators that can't tag themselves out or just disappear back into the deck with no replacement. Or if their own tagging effect has been negated somehow, Editor picks up the slack, allowing you to really toolbox the monsters you have on the field.
Advanced 5/5
