Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh Card of the Day

Master Kyonshee

Card Number - PGD-053

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

Date Reviewed - 08.12.03

Adam F. Master Kyonshee

PGD-053
Common
Level 4
1750/1000
Earth/Zombie

Um… why is this card… why was it… I… gu… ha… ch… th…. p… g… d….

Sure, whatever… I'm just trying to figure out why this was chosen for COTD… whatever.

Run this card if and only if you A) REALLY Want more Zombie Monsters B) REALLY Want ore earth monsters C) both A and B.

OR 

If you want to make a beatdown 
AND
For some reason, cant get your hands on all of those COMMON 1800 Attackers.
This card just doesn’t have a place anymore. With only 1750, it has too much potential to get smoked by all those other 1800/1850/1900/2000 level 4 monsters out there

1/5 Note: I want to give it lower. This card just doesn’t deserve a spot in your deck 
DuelMonster Tuesday - Master Kyonshee:

PGD-053-Common
Earth/Zombie/4/1750/1000
"A wandering Kyonshee searching for a strong rival to defeat. They say he was known as the master of all martial arts."


At the moment this is the strongest non-tribute non-effect zombie in the game. This guy is obviously meant for Zombie Decks since there are many other non-tribute non-effect monsters with a higher ATK, though Zombie Dragon is still the highest ATK level 3 monster with 1600 ATK. There isn't really much I can say about this card, it has decent stats for a level 4 monster, and it's a zombie, one of my favorite types of monster but Konami doesn’t make too many decent ones, so it's still hard to make a Tournament worthy Zombie Deck.

If and when I do play a Zombie deck, I'd include Master Kyonshee, he does have decent stats for a non-effect monster but we need a level 4 1800 ATK Zombie soon, but until then, he stays in the binder.

Ratings:
Casual: 1.5
Tourney: 1.0
ArtWork: 2.5 - A very Oriental assassin looking type zombie, he doesn't even need his sword to reign havoc, He knows Kung Fu. 
Pegasus Master Kyonshee, 8/12/03:

Not much to say bout this card. 1750's not gonna stand up against any normal beatdown monster, and level 4 means you can't use it in a gravity bind. Fortunately, this card's a zombie (that actually has SUPPORT now). Unfortunately, it sucks and there aren't many cards you can combo with it at the moment.

Casual: 2/5
Tourney: 1.5/5

Master Kyonshee
PGD-053-Common
Earth/Zombie/4/1750/1000


Master Kyonshee come on down, you’re the next contestant on the Price is Right…err COTD!!!!!...hehehe. Ok Zombies seem to get gypped on high attack 4 star or less monsters. In a time when 1900+ beatdowns rule, why do zombies get stuck with a 1750. Still it’s higher than dragon zombie I guess. This card can be fetched with Pyramid turtle and Book of Life. And witch. It’s earth so it can receive their power ups as well. Not much to say about it, ask Nick, he likes zombies o_O;;

Casual: 1
Tourny: .5 
Vodkam Tuesday 08/12/03: Master Kyonshee

PGD-053
4/1750/1000
Earth/Zombie
Normal Monster

A wandering Kyonshee searching for a strong rival to defeat. They say he was known as the master of all martial arts.

At first glance, you'd think this is a useless card. You're mostly right but I suppose it has some usefulness in the right deck.

1750 ATK isn't going to kill anything that doesn't want to be killed. He has no effect and until there's some kind of mega-powerups for Zombies besides Castle of Dark Illusions, he shouldn't see a whole lot of play. Right now, since there aren't very many good Zombie monsters out, I suppose you could use him. If you manage to get Fushioh Richie on the field, you can start bringing these out after you've exhausted all your other, more powerful, Zombies.

Having an Earth attribute doesn't help him much either. Milus Radiant and Gaia Power would give him a boost but it would do the same for all those Gemini Elves, Goblin Attack Forces and Bazoo the Soul-Eaters too.

Overall, I think this is a mediocre card in a Zombie deck, and a completely useless card in anything else. You should only use this in a Zombie deck if you have no other options.

Rating-
Casual: 1.7
Tourney: 1.0 
Dark Umbreon Master Kyonshee is just a normal monster, which is weird because most of the time we don't review monsters, especially with sub standard stats. There isn't really much to say about him. except in a Zombie Deck he may be able to be powered up. However, you can probably just find some better Zombies with effects to take his place. All in all he's pretty plain ;p

Tournament Rating: 1.5/5
Casual Rating 2/5
