Sinister General Damudo - A replacement for the Vampire Silphy? Like Vampire Silphy, Sinister General Damudo has the ability to exterminate all creatures with power 3000 or less. So what's the difference between the two, you may ask? For starters, Sinister General Damudo must hit the graveyard before its effect pulls through. This can work to your advantage, whereas you have no choice with Vampire Silphy. This gives you a turn or two of preperation, for example, slamming your opponent with your 3000-or-less creatures before they become victoms of your own Sinister General Damudo. Or you may want to stock your field up with creatures who have effects when they're sent to the graveyard (ie Ouks, Vizier of Restoration & Mighty Shouter).
Second of all, when compared to Vampire Silphy, it's more affordable (6
mana) and has a nice power (5000). 6 mana for 5000 power is understandable and is becoming more standard as the game progresses.
This is great considering the effect (previously stated). All in all, Sinister General Damudo is a solid, weenie-killing creature that can comfortably fit into a darkness deck. Sinister General Damudo
gets a high 4/5.
+ Affordable - Vampire, what? + Weenie-Killer -
Anti-Rush Quality! + 5000 Power - Not too low, not
- Self-Killer - Prepare yourself!
