Copy and paste the first
two sentences from yesterday's review (not the "Who
didn't see this coming?" stuff, the first two from
the actual review), and insert Burner
where Zombie is, and you have this card. A monster
equipped with this does 1000 LP damage when launched
by Cannon Soldier. Not bad. It
also makes your weenie monsters slightly more
powerful so they can get another 500 LP direct
damage from an attack before being launched to the
Graveyard. Not bad at all.

possibilities, but the LP just doesn't add up that
Black Pendant -- Friday
Introduction: Woah I get to keep on pumping this
monser up, bwhahahahh!
A monster equipped with this card increases it's ATK
by 500 points. When
this card is sent from the field to the graveyard,
inflict 500 points of
Direct Damage to your opponent's Life Points.
Why should you use it?
*Does direct Life Point damage
Why shouldn't you use it?
Reasons: Hoped everyone had a Happy Halloween. Not a
bad card to hit off
the day after Halloween. This card is not that bad,
but a card over shadows
it. This card is an additional 500 damage, which isn't
that bad. The effect
may be why people choose this over, the inflicting 500
damage, when it is
sent fromt he field to the graveyard. So that means
that it would basically
be a Axe of Despair, except divided it's effect into
2. Well with any card
comes a bad card. This is an equipment card, which
always means, no monsters
equals bad card.
Rating: This card isn't half bad. Though more people
would rather use Axe of
Despair, and i wouldn't see why not. This card has
potential, and almost
tournament level. I strongly doubt that you would see
this deck in most
decks, unless your using burn. Gets a 3.5 in my big
fat rating book.
Conclusion: Black Pendant is tooo rare to be seen in
This card is pretty decent when it comes to Equip
cards that can boost your Monsters. I'm still debating
about which card is better between this card and the
Equip cards that increase the Monster's ATK points by
700. The only reason I'm not sure about it is because
you attach this card to a Monster with and ATK of 1800
and he turns into a Monster with a nice ATK of 2300
which is not bad but is not enough to take out a
Summon Skull. While if you use one of the cards that
give you a +700 ATK bonus you can take out a Summon
Skull, your Monster is still destroyed but that's one
Summon Skull you won't have to worry about anymore.
Then again this card will always deal at least 500
Life Points to your opponent and if it wasn't for the
Summon Skull thing this card gives you about the same
effect an equip card with a bonus of 700 ATK would.
Guess it's just player preference but I'll take my
+700 equipments over this card just for consistency.
500 Direct Damage to your
opponent's Life Points when it is discarded from play
doesn't intrigue me at all. I'm happy with my Axe of
Despair, I don't need to waste room in my deck for
such an outdated card.
I guess it wouldn't be
too bad in a deck based around Direct Damage. But, 500
Direct Damage isn't something to be very excited
about. +500 ATK can be decent if used at the right
time, but there are a few other Equipment Magic
cards that can serve you better.
