Mon- Masked Sorcerer
 
Ehhh? What the…? Masked Sorcerer? o_O
 
Well, to tell ya the truth, I had to look this card up, since I had no idea what it did. ^_^;;
 
OK, you can draw a card if Masked does LP damage to your opponent… *Looks to its stats* … 900/1400? … Well, now I know why I’ve never seen this card before. =\
 
Only way you’ll get the extra card is by way of no monsters on opponent’s field, some HEAVY equipping, or Caste Walls on it. =\
 
Oh heck, this card’s crap. Don’t bother.
 
Rating: 1.8/5 ­ Given the ability to do stuff gives it some points! YaY!

Yay!  It's my turn this week!  Today, we're looking at a card that most people overlook, Masked Sorcerer.
 
Card Text:
Dark/Spellcaster/4/900/1400
Effect: When you inflict damage to your opponent's Life Points with this card, draw 1 card from your Deck.
 
Analysis:
I'm surprised this card hasn't popped up more.  It's mad tech, as it has plenty of opportunities to power up (it's Dark main-type and Spellcaster sub-type), gets around Trap Hole (900 attack), and can destroy almost any popular monster in combination with Shield & Sword.  Of course, the main reason you're using this guy is for his effect.  With the incredible number of monster removal cards (Trap Hole, Fissure, TttD, Raigeki, Dark Hole, Barrel Dragon, MEB, Mirror Force), it's easy to get a clear field to pop this guy in.  Works well in combination with Robbin' Goblin, because you get to draw a card and they lose a card!  Card advantage is BIG in this game, considering the limited number of drawing cards, and I won't even mention the new-found popularity of Robbin' Goblin, not to mention that you need cards in your hand to use Magic Jammer and TttD.  If you can get multiple of these guys on the field and keep your opponent's field clear, you will have one hell of a speed advantage.
 
The only disadvantage is the stats.  900 attack is crap, and 1400 defense isn't THAT bad.  However, Shield & Sword once again takes out La Jinn, 7 Colored Fish, Dark Elf, Skull, etc.
 
Combos:
Masked Sorcerer + any monster removal = Clear field.
 
Masked Sorcerer + Shield & Sword = Dead F/S monster.
 
Masked Sorcerer + Swords of Revealing Light = Can't be attacked.
 
Counters:
Low stats: 900/1400 won't win many battles.  This, however, isn't that bad, because it can be pulled by both Sangan and Witch of the Black Forest.
 
Robbin' Goblin: It sucks to draw the cards, just to lose them again.
 
Should YOU play it?
This card is good tech for almost any deck out there.  You have to play him strategically to be able to abuse his effect.  You should sideboard at least one if you have an open spot.
Score:
I give Masked Sorcerer a 3.3.  You have to use it strategically, but if you can pull it off, the rest is gravy.  I may give this guy a try at my first sanctioned tourney on Saturday (I.M. Chuckles in Fremont, Ohio).
