Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh Card of the Day
 

Invader of the Throne

 

Card Number - MRL-026

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating

Date Reviewed - 10.23.02

Melkor

Invader of the Throne is good and it is bad. It all, like always, depends on the deck. However, the effect is very, very interesting. It has a large downside, however, since this card always seems to be attacked.

However, if you combine it with Messenger of Peace and Cannon Soldier (and others), it makes a great deck. It'll very rarely be attacked, then. It's a good card if you can get the effect to work, but never play it in a normal beatdown deck. It's good for a burner.

It's just like a monster version of Snatch Steal, but your opponent does not regain life points. Just be careful about when you play this card on the field. The rating is 3.9. It's not bad in the right deck. Not very bad at all.

Yonex Invader of the Throne -- Wednesday

Introduction: Woah I just took your Magicain of Faith bwhhahaahh! Evil isn't
it? Hahhahahah

Earth
[Warrior/Effect]
Lv 4
1350/1700
Flip: Select 1 opponent's monster and switch control of it with this card.
This effect cannot be activated during the Battle Phase.

Why should you use it?
*Take control of opponent's monster
*Counter monsters?

Why shouldn't you use it?
*Lose a monster
*Poor stats
*Cannot be used during Battle Phase.

Reasons: We look at a very interesting card today. This is Invader of the
Throne that is like a permanent Change of Heart, but you have to give them
this monster in return, which isn't that bad. This means that if your
opponent has a Magicain of Faith down, you can counter it off by taking
their and then use another one of your monster to kill the Invader when it
belongs to them. This also can be a nice counter to those people who run big
monsters, when you can basically take control of their big monsters. The
poor thing is that you lose a monster, but you gain something in return.
It's poor stats make it stay on the field for a very limited time, though
this could be a good ting, since you might give it to your opponent anyways.
Also the thing that make this get a lower rating is that, it cannot be used
during Battle Phase, which means that it will be harder to do the effect.

Rating: This card has potential, but the last line kills this card. This
card gets a 3.0. It has a lot of potential, but also has a really bad effect
that makes it a bit hard to get this combo off.

Conclusion: This card might try to invade your deck, but don't let it, all
it wants is to sit in the dark with the thrown next to her side.

  This card has a pretty decent effect but I don't think she'll be used once the new set settles in. There's way too much Flip Effects hate and there are a lot of better cards to play instead of this one. The only really good thing about this card is the picture on it because in a heavy beatdown environment her 1700 defense is not going to help her that much.

I personally believe the new set is going to change the way the game is played but we'll have to wait until Upper Deck decides to post the new changes to the Forbidden and limited cards. I e-mailed them already asking when the new changes were going to be posted and the official response I got was.... "Soon". If you guys wanna try your luck and ask or if you have any other questions you would like an official ruling on feel free to e-mail entertainment@upperdeck.com  and please include in your e-mail that IQ told you to ask them every single question you might have. >;~)
