Daidalos, General of Fury
 

Hello yet again Pojo readers. This week we are reviewing more cards from the new set, Thunder Charge of Ultra Destruction. But today we've got a card from the Stomp-A-Trons of Invincible Wrath set, That being Daidalos, General of Fury. Let's take a look see shall we?

 

Name: Daidalos, General of Fury

Type: Creature

Race: Demon Command

Civilization: Darkness

Power: 14,000

Cost: 4

Rules Text:

(Double Breaker) Whenever this creature attacks, Destroy one of your creatures.

Mana Number: (1)

 

At first glance, most people think "What!? A 14,000 double breaker for only 4 mana!?" Which is common. But the downside is that you've got to destroy a creature when he attacks. And if he's your only creature on the table, He destroys himself and you get no attack. But 14,000 Double Breaker at turn 4 is really hard to deal with.

 

Pros

- He's cheap, A double breaker and can be used along with many different cards inorder to produce different effects.

- He's got a 14,000 power body for 4 mana. That's also hard to deal with.

- He's a Demon Command, So he's cheap Ballom bait.

 

Cons

- He destroys a creature when he attacks.

- If you've got no other creatures and decide to attack with him, He'll destroy himself.

 

What else could you play?

- Well, For 4 mana. There is nothing that compairs to his power and his ability to destroy your opponent.

- You could summon Jack Viper before this guy attacks and really make him useful.

- You could cast some small creatures and then play Snake Attack to double break many shields, At the cost of all the creatures that attacked being destroyed.

 

Constructed: 4 / 5  - In the right deck, This guy is savage. He'll win you the game single handedly.

 

Limited: 5 / 5  - If you manage to pull this guy and have many cheap creatures, By all means. Use him! He'll obliterate your opponents creatures and shields! And given the low number of kill spells in limited format, It would be pretty hard to get rid of him.

 

Well pojo readers, That's all for today. Tomorrow we'll be reviewing the card Headlong Giant from Thunder Charge of Ultra Destruction. Till then, This is DimAssassin seeing ya later.

Ah, I love the smell of Daidalos in the morning...  There are SO many combos with this card it is not even funny  I posted some of them in the duel yammer section if you want to check that out.  He is definitely one of the best in the game.  He also now has the help of propeller mutant.  He is great in every format of the game.  If you want further info on my opinion of this card, read my yammer about him.

 

 

Constructed: 55555555/5 or 5/5 if you have no soul.  There are many combos with this creature.

 

 

limited: 5/5 He has many sacrificial creatures in this format.

 

 

My invitationals are on the 17th in Rockville, MD if anyone is going, email me at Toiletheadbrett@aol.com

Well here is my next review. Sorry for the miss of the last two reviews but that was then and this is now.  Today's card, the one the only, Propeller Mutant.
 
Interesting card indeed. When this card is destroyed, your opponent discards a card at random from his hand.  It cost 2 mana and has 1000 attack.  It is a hedrien which currently doesn't matter at all. 
 
Cost: 2 mana is awesome.  Darkness is known to have some slow cards so this is great. 
 
Type: Darkness in my opinion is known mostly for creature and hand destruction.  This just adds on to the page of cards that have this ability,
 
Effect: As stated this card has many cousins but off the top of my head this one seems to one-up them xD.  Get it out early and beat shields until your opponent decides that they can't take any more of the beating from and 1000 attack monster and kills it also costing them a card in their hand.  Hand advantage is crucial in Duel Masters for the fact that if you don't have a hand you have to just let your opponent attack your shields or rely on top-decking something helpful.  If you don't top-deck anything helpful you give your opponent the chance to swarm with creatures and take you out in one blow.  So just take some time to think about that.
 
Limited:4.5/5 
Rushing in limited is deadly for your opponent.  Hand advantage is even more necessary here than in constructed so if you get this boy out early you have a good chance to win.
 
Constructed:4/5
Not as great here but still good enough for a four.  Nothing much to say besides that.
 
Art:2.5/5
Meh, looks weird....just weird.  I've seen better : /
 
Also I have two things to say off topic.
 
#1 My last review was Shock Hurricane.  Recently thanks to The Furnace from the boards, I have relized an awesome combo for this spell.  In Evo-Crushinators of Doom there was a light rare called Phal Guardian with the effect of when it is played into the battle zone, you may take a spell from your graveyard and add it to your hand.  Use Shock Hurricane with this and you have a deadly combination.  Not to mention Corile too.  You may want to run nature in a deck revolved around this that way you have enough mana to do that in one turn :D
 
#2 I am not sure if I am able to go to my Pre-Release for Thundercharge seeing as I live in Louisiana and with Hurricane Dennis around the corner in the Gulf of Mexico, I may have to evacuate. 
 
Well that raps up this week.  If you have anything that you want to tell/ask me I will gladly appreciate it.  My e-mail is danieljs@bellsouth.net .  Happy dueling and stay positive.  Don't get angry if you lose cause you learn from losing more than you do from winning.  Good luck at all of the weekend tournies.
