Alright this one is a good card. Its a level 4
with an attack of 1700. This is slightly better than
battle ox since its def is higher big deal huh? Anyway
good card to have in a standard deck. The chances of
getting this card is pretty bad though. I've only seen
one pulled out of 5 tournaments I've been too. So if
you get this your lucky. Nothing else to say. His
level and atk stats speak for itself.
There is not much to
say. The card is solid, but there is
better. I can't see this card getting played
much in decks. The people who can get it
probably already have the better cards such as La
Djinn and 7 Colored Fish and it serves little to no
use for them. For the newbies, they can't even
get this card, so what's the point?
Today is Thursday,
and we're continuing potluck week with another
Super Rare from the Season
1 tournament packs, Axe
One of Joey's
favorite cards, and a formidable card it is.
At 1150 defense, it currently has the highest
defense of all Level 4 monsters with an attack
power of 1700 or more. This is normally
meaningless, as, even with Shield
& Sword, the next turn he still
gets killed by a La Jinn or 7
Colored Fish. If you are crazy
enough to play a mono-Earth deck, you can use
this along with Battle Ox, Judge
Man, and the field card in Pharaoh's
Servant (when we get it) to boost Earth's
attack by 500 points, and you have yourself a
very nifty monster.
alone, 1700 attack just won't cut it.
You need some kind of support. I can see
this guy being used in mono-Earth and
mono-Warrior decks in the future, as the card
selections for those types are somewhat
For now, I would
leave it in your binder. Once you have
enough cards for a Warrior deck (Struggle of
Chaos will aid greatly in
making a mono-Warrior deck), you can use this
guy or Battle Ox.
Besides, even if you don't use it, this thing will
be a hot card, seeing as it is a tourney Super
Rare and probably an anime fan
Axe Raider has
promise, and a pretty good price on its head,
so it gets a 2.9. Once
you build a Warrior deck, you can pull this
Introduction: Say hello to my older brother, Axe
Earth / Level 4
Why should you use it?
*Nice card over Neo/Ox.
Why shouldn't you use it?
*Attack stats isn't great at all.
*A bit hard to get
Reasons: It's Battle's Ox older brother, Axe raider.
This card is a bit
stronger than Neo and Ox because of it's DEF points.
This card is just a
regular attacking monster, yeah no drawbacks! The 1700
Attack points doesn't
make it that great, since it's very RARE to find
someone using 1700, so it's
gonna get killed with no thought about it. Since this
card is part of the
Tournament Pack collection is a little bit harder to
get, it's a Super Rare
by the way.
Rating: A good card, but just doesn't cut it with the
it's gonna be a very easy monster to kill. Regardless
of that I love neo and
ox, so I would give this card a rating of 3.0. Don't
complain about this,
just try it for yourself.
Conclusion: A great card to use on little kids :-).
Axe Raider is a Level 4 monster with
1700/1150 ATK/DEF with no effects.
If Axe Raider was released before Metal
Raiders, it would of been played just for the sheer
fact that it has a slightly higher DEF than Neo
the Magic Swordsman and Battle Ox.
So much for that.
Even now it is playable to some extent. The problem
is, there are just better cards available, and with
the release of the next couple of sets it just gets
worse and worse.
Tournament worthy? If you are REALLY desperate
go ahead. I don't fully recommend it though.
Playable, just not very good anymore
Today's CoTD is Axe Raider from the Tourney Packs.
Set: Tourney Packs
Advantages: Its attack is descent and will see play
in the near future b/c of this cards popularity. 1700
attack is worthy enough to put in your deck but you
would need some powerups like Invigoration and Stim
Pack to wreck Havoc. Evon though this card would still
be able to do a descent amount of damage if you play
Disadvantages: Well the problem is look at the
attack of 7 Colored Fish or La Jinn compared to the
attack of Axe Raider. If they would go head to head
you know who would surpass as the victor. Another
problem is could Axe Raider make it alive for at least
1 turn of play. Can you smell La Jinn, 7 Colored Fish,
Combos: Axe-Raider+Stim Pack would raise Axe
Raider's attack to 2400 =). Another combo would be
attach a magic card Invigoration which increses an
earth type monsters attack +500.
Another good idea would be is to play Axe Raider with
reinforcements in your deck to surprise your opponent.
Conclusion: Axe Raider can be a good card if you
use it right. If you just would play it without
thinking then you will be in trouble b/c it won't last
long on the field. Remember Yu-Gi-Oh is a game of
thinking not just choosing the highest at tack
monsters and attacking your brains out with it.
Personal Rating: 3/5
Tournament Rating: 4/5 I'm being nice
Overal Rating: 3
hmmm... I would normally say this is the guy you use
until you can get 3 La
Jinn and 3 Seven Color Fish but since he's from the
tournament packs he's
actually harder to get. I guess if you're a collector
you want to have him
but if your a player you have no use for this card, he
might be able to take
out a lot of the really tinny monsters but he's too
small to beat the
monsters everyone's using.
Thursday - Axe Raider
Today we are looking at Axe Raider. This monster
boasts one of the highest attack power for level 4
monsters in the game so far, at 1700.
Unfortunately, it's a super rare from the tournament
packs, so good luck trying to get one. Battle ox
almost an exact replica of this card, and much easier
I think monsters with 1700 attack are a thing of the
past. With beatdown decks, you'll most likely be
keeping your attacking monsters above 1800. 1700
doesn't make the cut anymore.
I give this card a 3/5. Nice stats, but there
better, stronger, and more common level 4 monsters.
