Back to the main COTD
Honeybot is an important
monster in this early stage of the link format and
is probably the best link monster in the game save
for maybe Firewall Dragon. As with the early days of
Formula Synchron and T.G. Librarian, Honeybot serves
as a superb link between the first extra deck plays
and the latter broken ones. I discussed yesterday
how much better it is to have at least one arrow
pointing right or left. Well Honeybot points both
ways, which means she’s the easiest second link
monster to choose from.
Requiring two Cyberse monsters
makes summoning Honeybot a challenge, but since
Cyberse is an actual type, the pool of monsters
available to summon her will only grow, increasing
her future potential. They key to defeating link
monsters will most likely always be getting rid of
the first or second link monster that the opponent
summons. If you don’t stop it early, you’re toast.
And that idea makes Honeybot really good, since she
protects the monsters she points to in two different
ways. She’s the play extender of this generation and
can be quite easily had through a number of one-card
or two-card combos.
If you’re running a link deck,
the odds are you’re going to be running a few
Cyberse, especially when you’re going for the
extended plays link decks are capable of, and if
that’s the case, you’re running Honeybot. Link decks
at the moment can’t stand up on its own, but link
monsters are the future. Like pendulums, they are
bound to explode in short order. Hold onto three
copies of Honeybot for sure.
Future Potential: 4.5/5
Hello Pojo Fans,
Link Monsters are finally here and today we're
looking at Honeybot.
Simple Link 2 monster with decent ATK. Honeybot
would be a go-to for all players if it didn't
require Cyberse monsters only. If you only needed
two monsters to make Honeybot it would be so good.
If you do make Honeybot though your monsters that
are pointed to by this cards arrows will be
protected against targeting card effects. In
addition, they also cannot be destroyed by battle.
Sideways arrows are great if you can make Honeybot
in the Monster Zone. You'll need to Link Summon a
Link Monster with a down arrow first. Honeybot
offers great protection to monsters its arrows point
to if you can bring it out. With 1900ATK though it
will be the first monster targeted to open up those
monsters its points to.
While only Cyberse monsters will benefit from
Honeybot, it's still a great Link Monsters.
Until Next Time
We continue Link Week with the second of the first
three Link Monsters we get, this time we look at a
Honeybot requires exactly 2 Cyberse monsters, so
don't think you can use a different Link-2 Cyberse
monster. Honeybot points Left and Right, so it is
great to have after you summoned another Link
Monster like Decode Talker or Link Spider. Honeybot
allows the monsters she points to have immunity to
targeting and not be able to be destroyed by battle.
This is nice to have to protect strong Extra Deck
monsters like a Natura Beast, Crystal Wing, etc.
This is a pretty good Link Monster, just sucks that
we don't have many Cyberse monsters yet, but we are
bound to get a lot, giving this card a strong
future. Don't worry if you want a generic Link
Monster that points Left and Right, Proxy Dragon
comes in this years Mega Tins. If you are playing
enough Cyberse monsters, this is worth it over Proxy
Dragon, though. Plus, this is a nice card to use
when we get the World Chalice monster that requires
only Link Monsters to Link Summon.
Advanced Rating: 3.5/5
