Cyber Dragon vs. Fiend Megacyber
August 29, 2006

           

Everyone used 3 Cyber Dragons. Light, 5-star, Special Summon, 2100 ATK, awesome. How about this? Dark, 6-star, Special Summon, 2200 ATK. Better, huh? Well, here is Fiend Megacyber, who is Warrior, unlike Cyber Dragon’s being a Machine. At first, I thought Fiend Megacyber was going to be either Fiend or Machine, but I guess I was wrong.

 

You can Special Summon Cyber Dragon straight from your hand if you have no monster and if your opponent has at least 1 monster. It’s a pretty easy requirement. Fiend Megacyber’s text reads a bit different. While it doesn’t matter if you have monster or not, your opponent has to have at least 2 more monsters on the field than you. 100 ATK does matter when Cyber Dragon is usually included in 3’s in every offensive deck, and in Machine deck he’s a staple. However, Scapegoat will help out Fiend Megacyber. If your opponent activates the quickplay, then you can Special Summon 3 Fiend Megacyber from your hand! Though that will be a quite overextension…after Mirror Force and Torrential Tribute has been gone, assuming your opponent doesn’t have Lightning Vortex in his or her hand, Fiend Megacyber won’t be so easy to get rid of.

 

Stats: Cyber Dragon: Light, Machine, Effect, 5-star, 2100 ATK, 1600 DEF.

Fiend Megacyber: Dark, Warrior, Effect, 6-star, 2200 ATK, 1200 DEF

 

Fiend Megacyber wins here. Warrior is the most supported type in the game. A-Forces, Warrior Returning Alive, and Reinforcement of the Army are the main ones. Spell-wise, the only useful ones would be Limiter Removal, and Heavy Mech Support Platform, which is a Union 500 ATKer, isn’t so bad. 100 ATK is also nice, as I explained earlier. Though Defense hurts a bit, with the ban of Tsukuyomi, it won’t hurt that bad, as your opponent will have to use Book of Moon or Enemy Controller to destroy him. Light and Dark are considerably better than other Attributes, but they are almost equal. Warrior Returning Alive can bring Fiend Megacyber back. Yet you can always use Mystic Plasma Zone or Luminous Spark to boost those threatening attack by 500 to have really intimidating attackers.

 

Effect: Cyber Dragon: Special Summon when you have no monster, and your opponent has at least one.

Fiend Megacyber: Special Summon when your opponent has 2 or more monsters than you do.

 

These two are debatable. Most players will prefer Cyber Dragon because you can Special Summon him, Tribute Summon Zaborg, and kill that 1 face-down. However, you can’t use Cyber Dragon if you Special Summon Treeborn Frog during your Standby Phase. Fiend Megacyber can still be Special Summoned, assuming your opponent has 3 monsters. They are not both so good with Treeborn Frog, although they can be Tribute Summoned by Mystic Tomato that your opponent gave you with Creature Swap. I’d say Cyber Dragon is better. It should have been at least semi-limited to 2, except the fact that it has its own theme, with tremendous Fusion monsters and Proto-Cyber Dragon. When you Special Summon Proto-Cyber Dragon, you can activate Inferno Reckless Summon to bring out 3 real Cyber Dragons and 1 more Proto-Cyber Dragon.

 

The fact is that while your opponent has only 1 monster, and you have none, Fiend Megacyber is stuck in your hand, whereas Cyber Dragon charges at your opponent. Ojama Tokens will surely help for Fiend Megacyber, which will stop your opponent’s Cyber Dragon and Fiend Megacyber, as you would have to have 5 monsters. Try Fiend Megacyber out, if you are using Warrior deck. It’s not a bad card at all. Maybe you can use both Cyber Dragon and Fiend Megacyber to create an army of infinite Special Summons. Warrior-type is supported too well in my opinion… give Fish some support, besides A Legendary Ocean!!

 

Lastly, Fiend Megacyber will work well with Strike Ninja, both are Warriors, both are dark, and 2200 ATK with Return from the Different Dimension is pretty darn good, since Chaos Sorcerer has been banned. You might as well replace 3 Cyber Dragons with 3 Fiend Megacybers, depending on the deck you are currently using. Just notice that Scapegoat will hurt the usage of both Special Summonable monsters, as they always do with swarming strategy.

P.S.: Carrots shall rule the world! Oh, and I apologize that, as a reader kind enough to pointed out to me, the first article had a bulky paragraph, and without any spacing. Thank you for pointing it out…you know who you are ^_^ thanks!
