Fri - Electric Lizard
Effect: Any monster attacking this card can not
attack on its next turn
Bakura versus Yugi and yugi getting fried is all I
can think about when I look at the Eletric Lizard.
This, like steel scorpion is a stall card, designed
to buy you some more time whilst you wait for the
Calvary (read: Rageki) to come a runnin'
Its effect is constant and not flip, so it can be
used in conjuction with Last will and can help you
buy a lot of time if your waiting on that ONE card
to turn the tide of battle.
This card is useless if they have reserves of
monsters to draw upon but if they are down to a few
skimpy recruits and attack then you can breath a
sign of relief for a turn knowing that the reaper
wont see your soul just yet.
Since most people attack face downs with Summoned
Skulls before their Lagin/Battle Ox/7 Fish monsters
then this often leads to you crippling their
powerful monsters. You would still need to deal with
the other ones as well but sometimes the removal of
ONE monsters attack can turn the battle in your
favour. Let me stress this is one of those monsters
that is good to slip into a deck but should never be
Advantages: Stall! It helps you stall, get
reinforcements or line up your winning combo.
Withdrawing that monsters attack from their next
round can sometimes mean the difference between life
Disadvantages: It only stops one card for one turn.
If they have other cards then they arent effected
and CAN attack. The effect wears off soon and unless
a miracle occurs it will be ready to fight back the
Useful Combo Cards: Last Will, when you feel
yourself needing that extra barricade, this can buy
you that extra turn... Waboku, when they attack and
see your card standing upright, they are still fried
but you get to live another turn
Example Play: They have a nice juicy Summoned Skull
on the field and have a feeling that the monster you
set is a 2000 defence card. They attack with their
Skull and get fried. You still loose 1800 damage
from the Lagin attacking :( You have been sitting,
waiting for something good and you draw the card of
your dreams, Dark Hole. Play that Attack monster in
your hand and now you have a free field to reign
