Casual Play: 4
-Powers up mons that
aren't normally played so if your playing in a
tourney then you don't have to worry about anyone
else getting the power up.
-This card helps things
like battle ox and Judgeman.
-Reverse trap can own it
-De-spell can own it
-it only helps battle ox
and judgeman in competive play
RFP: Battle Ox is the
only card that everyone plays that this card could
screw you on. Judgeman isn't really popular, but he
is still there. I personally don't like field magic,
because they help your oppenent too. It does
give battle ox a boost over la jinn, and it makes
Judgeman, but this card still isn't that great.
RFC: Well since it is a
magic card de-spell will get rid of it. Leaving the
only two mons that this card really helps back into
there normal attack and defense. Although again, I
dont think your oppenent is going to waste a
de-spell on a sogen, when they can use the de-spell
on a swords of revealing light. Another card that
destroys the whole purpose of sogen is reverse trap.
Reverse trap will make that battle ox a weak 1500
monster, and that judgeman a version of sword
stalker. And are 1500 lvl 4's good? no, and are 2000
lvl 5 or 6's good? Again the answer is no. So
therefore reverse trap again makes this card lose
its purpose. And finally this card only helps 2
playable cards, while yami helps 5. Bear in mind I
don't like field magic, because it is a waste of
space and all you really need right now is
Sogen with warrior or
beast warrior mon: this is quite obvious...=/
Um yea this card doesn't
really have any combos. Its just a power up card
thats its only purpose. Well cya tomorrow. As always
good luck and happy dueling.
Wednesday - Sogen
Increases the ATK and
DEF of all Beast-Warrior and Warrior-Type monsters vy
200 points. It's similar to Yami and all those other
Field Magic cards, except it targets different
The problem with Sogen
is that there isn't a big pool of Beast-Warrior and
Warrior monsters. The reason why Yami is fairly
playable. Some playable Beast-Warrior and Warrior monsters that
come to mind are Battle Ox and Judge Man. Sogen isn't
worth adding for just those two cards though.
With the release of
later sets, that and other Field Magic cards, may have
a little more potential.
…Sogen? … OK, it powers up Battle Ox… And that
one card with 1500 ATK… Hmmm ;/ Well let’s just
say, don’t play this. =/

Bleh. There are
only three decent cards that this thing
benefits: Judge Man, Battle Ox, and Flame Swordsman.
(sorry Gaia and Celtic Guardian fans). Other
than that, it's not very good. Nothing is
stopping you from using Yami to pump up Neo and La
Jinn. And 200 attack points won't be a
gamebreaker. Sure, now Battle Ox can take out
La Jinn, but you've got to get both cards on the
field at the same time first, and there aren't
enough worthy Warrior cards out yet. Just
you wait until later sets, particularly Struggle of
Chaos, because then, Warriors will become VERY
Sogen + Battle Ox =
Nighty night La Jinn.
Yami: Currently, the
superior field card, although field cards are
De-Spell: Bye bye.
o_o forget it.
Not much in support here. Sorry =(
TOMORROW'S COTD: Trap
Master. Part of a useful anti-Trap Hole combo.
Continuing with the best cards in the game, we have my
personal favorite - Sogen! Actually, this card
is pretty down there on my list of favorites. I've
never used it in a deck, nor do I ever intend to. Why?
Well, it's...sorta kinda horrible. Well, it's not so
much horrible as it is useless.
Let's be honest, have you ever seen anyone even
somewhat good play a beast/warrior deck? I sure
haven't. To be frank, there's just not enough good
ones. There are basically two that see play, Battle
Ox and Judge Man. A field card devoted to
powering them up is inefficient. Mayhaps in later
sets, we'll see some more good cards in this sub-type.
For now, store it somewhere far away from your deck.
Other than that, there's not much to say. Field cards
in general are pretty bad right now, and Sogen
is a step below Yami. Anyway, enough rambling.
Rating - 1.2 - Don't use it, even in casual
