Aha! We finally
get a semi-decent card! 1600 attack for a 3
star monster is pretty good, and it's only 200
points behind La Jinn. The defense is pretty
worrisome, but hey, we can't have everything we
Being of the Dark
type, it can benefit from Sword of Dark
Destruction, a staple card in all the Fiend/Spellcaster
The Zombie grouping
doesn't help him now, but with the Castle of Dark
Illusions to come in Metal Raiders, he can benefit
from the attack increase.
Dragon Zombie + Sword
of Dark Destruction = 2000 attack power
La Jinn/Battle Ox/Neo
the Magic Swordsman: Take a wild guess.
Well, this guy isn't
THAT bad if you're low on money. Plus, he
comes in the Yugi starter deck, which means you
can also get other nifty cards like Summoned
Skull, Wall of Illusion, and some REALLY good
Magic/Trap cards, like Dark Hole, Monster Reborn,
and Change of Heart. This guy fits in fairly
well in a Fiend/Spellcaster deck, although you're
probably better off with Rogue Doll, Ryu-Kishin
Powered, or Man-Eating Treasure Chest.
You may see this guy
in some Castle of Dark Illusions decks once Metal
Raiders is released in June. Otherwise,
people may steer away from this card.
Hey, this guy is more
playable than the last two cards we've looked at
this week. Not only that, but he comes
packaged along with some really nifty cards in the
Yugi starter deck. If you can't get your
hands on a Kaiba starter deck, this will probably
be one of your strongest attackers.
