From Beneath the Lake...

3.07.06

Hello again to Pojo and Yugioh fans one and all! Sorry for the title of this article, you'll understand why that horribly cheesy (possibly horror movie title) was chosen shortly. I've decided to take an in-depth look at the monster D.3.S. Frog from Shadow of Infinity, which is a Fusion of three Des Frogs.

Des Frog
Aqua/Effect
Water/Level 5
1900-0

When this card is Tribute Summoned successfully, you can Special Summon "Des Frog"(s) from your hand or Deck up to the same number of
"T.A.D.P.O.L.E."(s) in your Graveyard.

Also, we'll look at Treeborn Frog, as it can power-up the Fusion.

Treeborn Frog

Water/Aqua/1/100/100

Effect: If this card is in your Graveyard during your Standby Phase and there are no Spell or Trap Cards on your side of the field, you can Special Summon this card to your side of the field. This effect cannot be activated if there is a face-up "Treeborn Frog" on your side of the field.

Finally, we'll look at the Fusion itself.

D.3.S. Frog

Fusion Water/Aqua/8/2500/2000
"Des Frog" + "Des Frog" + "Des Frog"

Effect: A Fusion Summon of this card can only be conducted with the above Fusion Material Monsters. Increase the ATK of this card by 500 points for each "Treeborn Frog" in your Graveyard.

For anyone who has tried to make a Frog/Tadpole deck, whether it be for casual or tournament play, I believe you may get a nice new weapon and edge here for your deck from D.3.S. Frog.

Now granted, this is a Fusion of three (yes three) Tribute monsters.
I'm not going to lie, that isn't a good thing at all. However, things like Fusion Gate can help you summon this monster without actually requiring the pieces on the field.

Now, let's take a look. You're giving up three resources (the three Des Frogs) for a 2500 attack Level 8 Fusion monster. That was worth three of your cards, wasn't it? Well, this Aqua friend gains 500 attack points for every Treeborn Frog in your Graveyard.

So, if you manage to get three Treeborn Frogs in your Graveyard (which isn't hard) since they only have 100 attack and 100 defense, you've given up three cards for a Level 8 Fusion who now has 4000 attack points. If that weren't enough, if you were playing A Legendary Ocean also, then he's up to 4200 attack.

Furthermore, if you wanted to throw in a couple copies of Dimension Fusion (assuming you had your four other monster slots open) you could summon two more D.3.S. Frogs giving you a total of 3 Level 8 Fusions who all have 4000 (or 4200) attack to punish your opponent for a potential 12000(!) damage or more.

As I've been talking about in my past couple of articles, this is a great monster to try building a deck around. Or, as I've been stating, a great weapon for those of you who all ready play the necessary deck.
Go ahead and try it out. Build this deck and take it to your next SJC or Local Card Tournament and see how you fare.

Until next time, you may feel free to contact me with anything @ tsearcy@lssu.edu

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

~Dark Paladin~
