Injection Fairy Lily @3--Pros vs. Cons
Hello again to Pojo and Yugioh fans one and all! Today I'm
coming before you to address an issue that many people seem
worried about, Injection Fairy Lily being completely
This is a very mixed boat. There are of course some dangers
of this, but it would take someone to build the proper deck
in order to take advantage of this. Observe...
For someone playing Beatdown, they wouldn't simply throw in
three copies of Injection Fairy Lily and hope for the best.
Let's face it, after you have used this effect three times,
you don't have enough lifepoints (2000 left assuming you
haven't paid any or lost any) to launch another attack.
Furthermore, you have a 400 attack monster just sitting on
your field, waiting to be trounced.
Secondly, throwing in one more copy into the deck, let alone
two, sets up that many more dead draws for you. How? For
exactly the same reason. If you have 2000 or less lifepoints,
and haven't even played a Lily yet, than any number you have
left and draw becomes a dead draw.
Ideally, you're playing none, or as few cards that fit this
category as possible.
An intelligent player isn't going to just throw one, or two,
or even three copies of Lily into their deck and just hope
for the best.
However, there are a few ways that this can be used and
horribly abused as well.
Take a Fire Princess Burn/Lifepoint Gain deck. Obviously, as
you are aware, this deck continues to heal and restore your
lifepoints, while burning and draining your opponent's
lifepoints. So, what would the harm be of playing Injection
Fairy Lily in this deck? Not a whole lot, honestly.
Furthermore, if you can keep your points high, which isn't
terribly difficult, why not play two, or even the three
copies you are now allowed?
Secondly, Magician's Circle is an easy way to summon
Injection Fairy Lily. Granted, two cards were banned that
nearly everyone played in order to assist you (being Breaker
the Magical Warrior and Magician of Faith), but it helps all
the same. However, there is one more combo that could be
Remember the little Magic card known as Inferno Reckless
Summon? It allows the player to selected one monster on
their field with 1500 or less attack points and Special
Summon as many copies of that card as possible from their
Hand, Deck, and/or Graveyard to the Field.
I'm pretty sure Injection Fairy Lily fits that criteria.
Granted, your opponent must have at least one monster on the
field, and you must have Special Summoned a monster fitting
the criteria, but that could give you THREE Lilys at once.
Assuming you had enough Lifepoints, that sets you up with
three monsters all ready to attack with 3400 points each.
Now, the point of this article, was to address the Pros vs.
Cons of Injection Fairy Lily being unrestricted, but I'll
briefly touch on Sacred Phoenix and Exiled Force also.
Sacred Phoenix being at three means the exact same thing
Vampire Lord being at three meant...nothing. Everyone
worried that Zombies would reign supreme being able to play
the Lord of the Undead at three, and that wasn't the case.
Even a dedicated Phoenix/Control deck isn't going to play
three. Why? The deck doesn't need to run THREE Level 8
monsters. Odds are, that will be a dead draw each time, and
even if you have the monsters to tribute, you may not want
Exiled Force being at three COULD be a problem, but it isn't
the end of the world. I don't even see Warrior Toolbox
running more than two. It IS a 1 for 1 that can take out
almost anything, but suppose it is your only monster and
your opponent has more than one. We still have Sangan and
Treeborn Frog, and destroying those could just help your
Destroy a Phoenix or a Vampire Lord, it will be back...
Well, that does it for today, I'll be back soon. Please feel

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
