The Junkpile-3 Cards Worth Looking At

Sept 4, 2007

Only Shooting Stars Break the Mold...
 
Well here is another addition to the Yu-Gi-Oh! world from lil' old me. I have often brought to your attention cards or decks that are surprisingly cool, but today I think that I am outdoing myself. Today I look at 3 different Tribute monsters. Usually Tribute Monsters don't get a second look unless they are a monarch, Cyber Dragon or Dark Magician of CHaos. Well here are three old friends that will cause quite a stir when summoned.
 
Airknight Parshath
Dark Ruler Ha Des
White Horned Dragon
 
These are all cards that have been regarded as being good, but have not seen play recently. This was due to the fast nature of the format requiring a card to pay for it's summoning cost upon summon. None of these cards do that. However with the new list, I believe that some of these cards will be able to be played well again.
 
Trample Your Face!
 
Airknight is the most popular of the choices for today. He was played a lot during Chaos because of his attribute and his ability to net you a card from battle. He was dropped with Vampire Lord when Cyber Dragon was released. Now however we have Shrink, Enemy Controller and a host of other cards that make him deadly again. Reasoning is his best friend as your opponent will likely guess another level. Monster Gate is also much fun, as your opponent will have no time to prepare for your piercing onslaught. Even with Shield Crush and Nobleman of Crossout running amok, there will still be defense position monsters thanks to Enemy COntroller as well as the new Seer/Apprentice Engine. I like this guy enough to have gotten 3 copies of him in the last year. Try him out, as he is a continuous advantage getter as well as a sword in your opponent's side.
 
Hmm, I Think Not!
 
This guy is amazing. Facedown monsters haven't got a chance and face up monsters are just easier to kill. With all of the cool effect monsters that we have running around, this guy has a presence on the field. 2450 ATK beats monarchs and pretty much anything else that your opponent can throw at you. With the loss of face up removal he is a bigger threat than ever. Recruiters, Sangan, DD MOnsters, Dekoichi, Gravekeeper's Spy, and Card Trooper all have their effects negated by him. The fun thing is that he grants this little negation trick to all of your fiend monsters. He cannot be Special Summoned from the graveyard though, so once he is gone, he is gone. However, he is almost invincible in battle and is vulnerable to the usual spell and trap cards as well as monster effects, but if you can get in a few negations with him, he will have already switched tempo in your favor.
 
It's Slifer! It's Uria! No, It's White Horned Dragon!
 
My second all time favorite card. He can be a whopping 3700 ATK when summoned properly. That is big just for a single tribute. Now that Magician of Faith is back people will be used to reusing their spell cards. White Horn just slaps her upside the face and says no. Cuz when he is summoned, you can remove up to 5 spell cards from your opponent's graveyard form play and it gains 300 ATK per card removed. This will limit your opponent's options while playing the APprentice Engine as well as any other deck that uses Magician of Faith. He is also huge, usually weighing in at 2800 ATK. Only DMoC has an ATK that high, so he will lay some serious smackdown on your opponent, and late game is godly. I like it a lot, so try him out and watch your opponent gape at his very large attack points.
 
If you want to contact me, raptor1k@hotmail.com I am going to be unable to get internet for a while, so don't despair if you don't receive an email immediately.
 
Thanx for Reading!
GZ
