Elemental Energy.  What can be used?
November 15, 2005

     Well, Elemental Energy is upon us, and we are all looking for those breaking new decks, or those splashable new cards.  As many can tell, this is not the best set we have ever recieved, but it has some cards that are going to see more and more play.

     -
EEN-EN008 Elemental Hero Wildheart/Warrior/EARTH/4 Stars/ATK 1500 /DEF 1600/This card is unaffected by the effects of Trap Cards.

    
Many people love Wildheart, and many just think he's mediocre.  Many believe you should just use Jinzo.  Well, although Wildheart cannot protect all your monsters from traps, he allows you to use yours.  His low attack can still be protected by that fact that you can still use your Sakuretsu's and Widespreads.  You can summon Wildheart and activate that Torrential Tribute you've been saving.  Wildheart will still be left to attack right past your opponents traps.  The reasion Wildheart will be used more than Jinzo is searchability.  He can be searched by Warrior Lady of the Wasteland, Sangan, Reinforcements of the Army, and Giant Rat.  Expect to start seeing 1 of these splashed into a lot of decks.


    -EEN-EN023 Sillva, Warlord of Dark World/Fiend/DARK/5 Stars/ATK 2300/ DEF 1400/If this is discarded from the hand by a card effect, Special Summon this card to your side of the field. If this card is discarded from the hand by your opponent's card effect, your opponent selects 2 cards in their hand, and returns them to the bottom of their Deck in any order./Rare/Ultimate Rare

    -EEN-EN024 Goldd, Wu-Lord of Dark World/Fiend/DARK/5 Stars/ATK 2300/DEF 1400/If this card is discarded from the hand by a card effect, Special Summon this card to your side of the field. If this card is discarded from the hand by your opponent's card effect, you can select up to 2 cards on your opponent's side of the field and destroy them./Super Rare/Ultimate Rare

    
These are the only two Dark World monsters you should expect to be splashed.  While Dark World monsters have a great abundance of support, these two still make it into other decks.  Sillva and Goldd combat all the Don Zaloogs and Spirit Reapers that are seeing play.  First, you get a 2300 attack monster that is special summoned (Isn't that the reason we all use Cyber Dragon?) any time they are discarded to the graveyard.  This means you can use Morphing Jar, Card Destruction, or even discard them for Lightning Vortex (although Lightning Vortex is terrible now).  But on top of that, you don't have to worry about Don or Reaper hitting these.  You want them too!!  You can argue all day about who's effect is better, and that possibly all comes down to opinion.  Personally, I'd say that Goldd is better.  Early game is when your opponent has cards in their hand.  So Sillva is best used then, but early game you also have many cards in your hand, so the odds of your opponent discard your Sillva aren't exactly the best.  Whereas, late game, you might be topdecking and topdeck this.  Your opponent attacks, discards it, you destroy 2 of their on field cards and special summon Goldd.  Expect these to be abused for the next SJC, and then sideboarded after everyone stops running multiple Don's and Reapers.


    
- EEN-EN037 Pot of Avarice/Normal Spell/Select 5 Monster Cards from your Graveyard, then add them to your Deck and shuffle it. After that, draw 2 cards from your Deck./Super Rare/Ultimate Rare

    
Ah..the new Pot of Greed...or so people thought.  Is Pot of Avarice all it's really cracked up to be?  No, it's not.  Pot of Greed was godly.  From early game to late game, Pot of Greed was always a perfect draw.  Pot of Avarice on the other hand, has drawbacks.  Early game your probably never going to have 5 monster cards in the graveyard.  So this makes it more of a late game card.  Also, after shuffling those 5 monster cards back into the deck, and considering that it's late game and most of your deck is gone, you are pretty likely to draw 1, if not 2 of the monsters that you put back.  This can be a good thing if you are really looking for a certain monster, but on the other hand..you could draw crap.  Will Pot of Avarice be played in every deck?  I don't think so.  Will some decks play it?  You bet.  This is best left to Exodia decks, it will help them a considerable amount.  Don't expect to see this too often, as it won't be played too much.

Sorry for the short article.  The next one will be better.  I was working on a meta-breaking article but alas, Giel posted his first.  If you have any suggestions, or comments, or any questions, please email me at TheAmishOne@gmail.com
