Obviously, this card is for stall decks, namely
Exodia. If you're playing exodia, this is one of
few cards in magic ruler that helps you. If you
keep this card out and protect it with magic jammers,
you can stall till you pull exodia. (though I

help to slow those decks down.
I give this card a 3.5/5. If you're playing

quick. But if stalling is not your purpose, stay
from this and get some mystical space typhoons to
The cards is a great stall
mechanism. It is certainly worth it if that's
what you're trying to do. The ability to hold
off fatties (most everything that is played in an
aggro deck) long enough to find a board-clearing
mechanism (Dark Hole, Rageki, etc..) or to find Exodia
pieces sure is awful nice. There are several
cards that could really ruin your day, but that's the

Messenger of Peace -- Wednesday
Introduction: Oh you have a big army, oh I just have
this one card, it's
called Messenger of Peace!! Noooooooo!
You must pay 100 Life Points at each of your Standy
Phase, if you cannot
pay, this card is destroyed. All monsters with an ATK
points of 1500 or more
Why should you use it?
*Get rid of those pesky 1500 and plus monsters.
*Destroy whenever you wish
Why shouldn't you use it?
*Your 1500 + cannot attack.
(all i can think of)
Reasons: Well thank you Nick, we get another evil
card. I love this card,
but hate to face against it, it's a very annoying
card, and easily abused.
Oh yeah to clarify things, it is only 100 not 1000.
This card stops all
1500+ monsters from attacking, that leaves Dark Elf,
La Jinn, fish, etc from
attacking. The only way I saw to destroy this would be
to use magic spells,
which if they got you in a bigger lock, it's
unstoppable. The misely 100
won't hurt you at all, I doubt that 100 is going to
cost you at the begging
of the game. Maybe at the end, but still a good card.
Finally, this is one
of the cards where you may "optionally"
decide to destroy this card, which
makes it even more nastier! Well now the negative
points, only one. It
effects everyone. Well not much to say, other than it
should be restricted.
Rating: Another superb card. I think this would be a
high rating due to how
much destruction it can cause, so I would give it a
rating of 4.5. Total
obbliteration. If this card only effected your
opponent(s), it would get a
10+. Well this is a good card, pretty broken in my
Conclusion: YoNeX goes gets a Master Stapler Gun 5000.
This card will be
stapled a billons times, before I run out of staples.
An Exodia based deck's best friend. Not many decks
rely on small monsters to attack, which in turn allows
Messanger of Peace to be longer lasting
Swords of Revealing Light.
The downside is that in turn, your 1500+ monsters
can't attack either. Exodia decks bypass this because
they don't normally run many (If any) attacking
monsters. For a rough draft of a control based
Exodia deck, take a look in my garage.
There are some other decks that can potentially
abuse this card also, but Exodia does it the best in
It's Wednesday, and we're going to
look at a popular card, Messenger of Peace.
You must pay 100 Life Points at each of your Standby
Phases. If you cannot pay, this card is destroyed.
All monsters with an ATK of 1500 or more cannot
This card is probably the most important card in the
new burner varient, known as the "weenie
burner". The goal of the weenie
burner is to hit hard and fast with the low attack
power direct damage attackers (Jinzo #7,
Rainbow Flower, etc.) and Cannon
Soldier. Since they would be
destroyed under normal circumstances the turn after
they are played, we use Messenger of Peace
to shut down the opponent's attackers (in other
words, almost any beatdown monster), and peg away at
their Life Points. If you are playing a weenie
burner, you must pack 3 of these.
Exodia decks will also gobble
this guy up.
Should YOU play it?
Weenie burners need 3 of them. Beatdown decks
would be stupid to play them. Exodia should
play them to at least shut down the opponent's
attacks (it can't do anything against the discard
cards until we get Reserves in English
Messenger of Peace gets a 3.6.
It's one of the best stall cards in the game, but
you do need to be aware of Heavy
Storm and Mystical Space Typhoon.
They will ruin your plans in a second.
If you're using an Exodia deck this is the card you've
been waiting for. It
will keep your opponent from runing you over to buy
you the time you need.
Besides that this card is not that great because
unless you're using a combo
deck this card will keep you from taking down your
opponent too. >,<
