wartortle32 Friday - Toon Summoned Skull

Today we look at our first toon, Toon Summoned Skull.
A couple rulings on toons I should explain first. 
1. To summon any toon, you must have toon world in
play
2. All toons are considered special summon, but you
still have to tribute to bring them out if they
require one
3. since they are special summon, you cant set toons,
but you can get them facedown with darkness approaches

If you really want to build a toon deck right now,
this is definitely required in your deck as I think
this is the best toon around.  It's pretty hard to
make one right now as all the required ones are pretty
expensive and rather rare.  Since toons keep the same
stats as their regular counterpart, it isn't
surprising this is a good card.  Summoned Skull is one
of the best tribute monster in the game.  1 tribute
for 2500 is awesome.  And if you can protect your toon
with some magic jammers, dealing 2500 direct damage
every turn will clinch the game in no time.

I give this card a 4.5/5.  Note that this rating is
only for toon decks.  If your playing a toon deck,
play this card.

In the right deck, he'll end the game in about 4 turns or less.  If they can't disrupt Toon World, this guy is dishin' death on turn 2 and doesn't stop until they're dead.  I like him - just keep your stuff from getting picked off of disrupted and it's all good.
Rating : 4.5
Yonex Toon Summoned Skull -- Friday

Introduction: I get to attack your Life Points directly ha!

Dark
[Fiend/Toon]
Lv 6
2500/1200
This card cannot be summoned unless "Toon World" is on the field. This card
cannot attack in the same turn that it is summoned. Pay 500 Life Points each
time this monster attacks. When "Toon World" is destroyed, this card is
destroyed. If your opponent doesn't control a Toon monster on the field,
this card may inflict Direct Damage to your opponent's Life Points. If a
Toon monster is on the your opponent's side of the field, your attack must
target the Toon monster.

Why should you use it?
*Act life points directly
*One of the best toons

Why shouldn't you use it?
*Tribute Monster
*A toon

Reasons: Today we look at one of the infamous toon cards , Toon Summoned
Skull. This critter packs the same power as the regular Summoned Skull from
Metal Raiders, except it it in Toon version. Well many of you know that it's
attacks life points directly which is good. This card is one of the best
toons, probably being tied with Toon Mermaid. Though it is a whooping 2500,
it is a tribute monster which will hurt due to how much kill spells in
today's environment. Also since it's a toon, Toon World needs to be out,
which makes things even harder to bring out. With so many kill spells, no
wonder toons aren't that great.

Rating: You will see this card maybe used in free play, but not a tournament
wise deck. This card is good, but I would give it a 2.5. Since it's a
tribute monster and a toon.

Conclusion: I see Toon Summoned Skull going to his book, but will stay their
permanently and the book will never open again. Never seeing the day of
light ever again.

SomeGuy Friday - Toon Summoned Skull

Toon Summoned Skull
This card cannot be summoned unless "Toon World" is on the field. This card cannot attack in the same turn that it is summoned. Pay 500 life points each time this monster attacks. When "Toon World" is destroyed, this card is destroyed. If your opponent doesn't control a Toon monster on the field, this card may inflict Direct Damage to your opponent's Life Points. If a Toon Monster is on your opponent's side of the field, your attacks must target the Toon Monster.

Personally, I dislike Toons. Here's why:

1. Cost 1000 LP to bring Toon World into play.
2. Cost 500 LP to play a Toon.
3. Toon's can't attack the turn they come into play. Thus giving your opponent a turn to deal with it.

4. A simple Heavy Storm or Mystical Space Typhoon acts as a Raigeki towards Toons.

That right there is just too many drawbacks for me to play with. The few points I do like about Toons are that:

1. Abuses the HELL out of Megamorph with all that LP loss.
2. Attacks opponent directly unless they control a Toon.

Toons will probably get better later, but right now I seriously wouldn't bother with them. Toon Summoned Skull isn't that bad, but the fact that you have to pay a Tribute along with the other 4 drawback I mentioned, it turns it into a mediocore card.

Rating: 2/5

Friday: Toon Summoned Skull
 
This card is a joke.  Honestly.  It requires Toon World AND 1 Tribute to play, THEN it can't even attack the turn it is played, PLUS you have to pay 500 LP to attack.  Your opponent can just wipe this guy out directly with monster removal, or nuke the Toon World.  Or, they can wait for you to attack and activate Mirror Force =/.  Yes, 2500 direct damage is nice to have, but it takes way too much to set up (and it costs you 1500 LP total to get off one attack with this guy).  Hurting this card even more is a wacky ruling that Toon monsters are Special Summons, even though they require Tribute and (to the best of my knowledge) count as your Normal Summon.  This does give it Trap Hole immunity, but you can't do the discard + revive combo on it until it comes into play normally.  Even if you want to do that combo, you would need Toon World.
 
Score: 2.4
2500 direct damage in one attack is nice, but it takes too long to set up and the Toon World combo is too easily countered these days.  Just wait until the Pegasus Structure Deck Toons and you will have some very worthy Toons to use. (Toon Gemini Elf, for example: 4 stars, 1900/900, doesn't require Toon World, White Magical Hat's effect ^_^)
Trunks the Swordsman
Toon Summoned Skull - Magic Ruler - Ultra Rare

Spooky picture ^_^ Anyway, this card can only be used if toon world is out and you have to tribute to bring him out plus he cant attack till your next turn leaving him open as fissure, raigeki, dark hole, etc. bait. But if you can get him out and keep him out, you can keep on attack directly for 2500 each turn and your opponents life points will go fast. So hes good in a toon deck obviously but he sucks everywhere else.

Rating 1.0 (if in a toon deck 4.5)

 
IQ

All I can say about this cool looking guy is Sided Deck. Yup, that's what this guy's good for, forget about trying to get your "Toon World" in play and just let your opponent do it for you. He'll never see it coming and all his tinny Toons will run up against your wall of 2500 attack points. Just imagine your opponent's expression when you play your Toon Skull thanks to his "Toon World".

That's about the only think this guy is really good for, you can try to build the Toon deck but Heavy Storm turns into a Raigeki against you so is not really worth it. Have fun and make sure you get a picture of your opponent's face as he realizes he's going to lose the game thanks to his own "Toon World". >;~)

Rating 2.7
