Dark Paladin's Yu-Gi-Oh! Dimension
Dark Paladin's Create a Card Contest

2.14.06

Hello again to Pojo and Yugioh fans one and all! Today I come to talk to you about two things. One of them is a little contest I felt like having..."Dark Paladin's Create a Card Contest!" However, we'll deal with that in a little bit.

Today, sort of as a follow up to my article a little while ago about Fusion and Ritual monster and whether or not they were worth it, I'm going to take a similar approach to tribute monsters.

First, let's take a look at some commonly played one tribute monsters.
Monsters in this group include but are NOT limited to: Mobius the Frost Monarch, Vampire Lord, Jinzo, and Airknight Parshath. All of them are used for obvious reasons. Mobius CAN destroy up to two magic or trap card. Vampire Lord for deck destruction and recursion. Jinzo for trap negation, and Airknight for trample and draw power.

Secondly, some two tribute monsters. Dark Magician of Chaos, Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys, or even BEWD or Dark Magician (however competitive the deck may be.) DMoC has a Magician of Faith type ability and he removes what he destroies. Phoenix has recursion and the ability to destroy any and all magic and trap cards on the field. BEWD and Dark Magician are more fun to play, but are seen as well.

Things people don't appreciate about tribute monsters is that they detract from your on field presence, even though a more powerful monster with a good effect may help to counter-balance the loss of a monster or monsters. Some decks don't even run tribute monsters (and no I'm not talking about something like Exodia).

In short, tribute monsters, no matter how good, are something that need to be used cautiously and intelligently. For the record, yes, I purposely ignored any and all tribute monsters that have no effect, have horrible stats, or fall into both those categories.

Finally, we come back to the contest. I would like every single one of you to create a card. Now, it can be a monster, a magic card (of any kind), or also a trap (again of any nature). If you choose monster, it must have an effect of some sort, but it can be a Fusion, Ritual, Tribute, or whatever.

NOTE: IF YOU CREATE A RITUAL, CREATE THE RITUAL MAGIC CARD ALSO.

NOTE: IF YOU CREATE A FUSION, PLEASE PUT ALL THE PROPER FUSION TEXT YOU WOULD SEE ON A REAL CARD!

Furthermore, it must be a Spellcaster monster or Spellcaster support (trap or magic) but other than that, it's completely up to you.

Finally, have fun, and enjoy. This contest will be open until Tuesday, Feb 21st at 12:00 a.m.

That does it for today, and if you need to contact me with anything, please do @ tsearcy@lssu.edu

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

~Dark Paladin~
