Bazoo The Soul-Eater

Probably my most favorite card in the whole set. If you didn't know, the English version was "upgraded". The Japanese Bazoo was horrible as you could only remove Monster cards and the effect lasted until the end of YOUR turn. Right now, Bazoo is probably the BEST non-Tribute attacker out there. I mean, a Summoned Skull with no Tribute? It kills Jinzo with no other cards (kinda). If your opponent uses Change of Heart or Snatch Steal on it though, it could backfire on you as he now can make it a 3400ATK Monster...

If Bazoo keeps the text and no errata is made on it, expect to see lots of Baboons in your Tournaments... ~_^

Viva La Baboons!

Rating: 4.4/5 (Note: That's higher than what I gave Gemini...)
Yonex Bazoo the Soul-Eater -- Wednesday

Introduction: "BaZoOolicous!"

Earth
Level 4
[Beast]
1600/900
You can remove up to 3 cards in your Graveyard from play to increase the ATK
of this monster by 300 points

for each card removed from play until the end of your opponent's next turn.
This effect can only be used only

once during your turn.

Anaylsis: Today we look at one of the cards i anticapted should be
bazoolicous :). We are looking at Bazoo the

Soul-Eater. This monster, if played right, can get incredibly huge. It can
become the size of a Summon Skull.

This huge monster can reek total mayhem as the one hit finisher. The effect
keeps it solid, however, 1600 may

not be solid, but if played right, you can keep it alive for pretty long
time. However, the price of removing cards

is to get a big monster. You may find yourself not having monsters to
remove, which puts this monster at very

low status. Also, the effect of 1 turn only makes it a hard choice, and must
be used wisely.

Rating: Fun card to play. Could be a deadly hitter if played. However, this
card is not going to be easy to play.

So be cauctious, this card is not for everyone. It is a skill card. This
gets a 3.5. It would get a 4.0, only if this

card is used properly.

Concludsion: Skill card!

wartortle32 Wednesday - Bazoo the Soul Eater

Upperdeck sure screwed with this card. You can remove up to 3 cards from your grave during your turn. This monster gains 300 ATK for each cards you remove. This lasts until the end of the opponent's turn.

First of all, I just want to compare this with the Japanese version. In the JPN version, you could only remove monsters from the grave, not any card. And the
ATK boost only lasted until the end of YOUR turn, not the opponent's turn. You can see a huge difference between the two versions. In the English version, it
is a lot easier to power up this monkey as you can remove magic and trap cards too. But since the ATK boost lasts longer, it will be harder for the opponent
to take it down by force. Basically, what you get out of this card, assuming that you have enough cards to keep it boosted, is a Summoned Skull with no tribute
required.

I give this a 4.2/5. If UD makes the corrections to change it to the Japanese version, I'd give it 3.5/5.

Wednesday - Bazoo the Soul-Eater
 
No clever opening today.  Just a review.
 
Wow, what was Konami smoking when they translated this guy?  This is similar to Wizards of the Coast changing Neo Genesis Slowking, changing a somewhat-mediocre card to something to be feared.  This is one of those situations.  In the original Japanese version, you could only remove monsters and the effect lasted only until the end of your turn.  The English version says that you can remove ANY cards you want from the graveyard from the game, and the effect lasts until the end of your OPPONENT'S next turn.  See what I mean?  For one full set of turns, you can have a Summoned Skull for no tributes.  Ouchies.
 
This guy's main purpose will be to destroy Jinzo, one of the biggest threats in the game.  Remove three useless cards from your Graveyard, POW! Jinzo is out cold.  This guy makes an EXCELLENT late-game hitter, as you're bound to have a heavily-populated graveyard, plenty enough fuel to pump this guy up to 2500 almost every turn.
 
As you read these reviews, watch as Bazoo's price on Ebay doubles or triples -_-;;;
 
Score: 3.7
SomeGuy Wednesday - Bazoo the Soul-Eater

LON-064
BAZOO THE SOUL EATER
Type: Effect monster
Earth/Beast/4/1600/900
Effect: You can remove up to 3 cards in your Graveyard from play to increase the ATK of this monster by 300 points for each card removed from play until the end of your opponent's next turn. This effect can only be used only once during your turn.
Super Rare

Before LON was released, this was an overlooked card. In Japan, you had to remove Monster cards in your graveyard in order to use his Effect. Us lucky American players get an Effect thats 5x as good. Being able to convert those useless cards in your Graveyard into damage is just outstanding. Remove one card and you match a Gemini Elf, remove two cards and you can run over Gemini Elf/Dark Elf, remove three cards.... 2500 ATK without paying any Tributes or wasting Equipment Magic sounds nice to me.

On top of all that, the effect ALSO works on your opponent's turn. Amizing.

Though, he isn't 100% efficient. During the first few turns, he's not usually up to his potential. But that's fine considering how powerful he is in the mid to late game.

The only actual drawback that Bazoo's effect has, is that he can't use the effect if your opponent has Kycoo on the field (And Kycoo can remove cards from tha game).

 About Soul Release (And others like it), it doesn't really count as a drawback. If people are wasting slots in their deck for cards like that, their card advantage will be down the drain.

Bazoo the Soul-Eater is definately an excellent addition to anyones Beatdown deck. Three may be much, but two sounds just about right.

Rating: 4.4/5

We'll see if UpperDeck decides to keep the new translation...

I don't like any of you,
Yes dad, this includes you too.
When you want your deck fixed, don't instant message me,
IM sick of you people bothering me, even when I'm trying to pee. (JUST KIDDING!)

Uh-oh! It's Mr. Attitude problem in the hizouse.
What pushed him to being such a louse?
Martin Moreno isn't really mad,
In reality he is pretty glad,
Because today were reviewing a cute lad,
named Bazoo who removes cards from the game,
When the effect is used, the attack power won't be the same.

It will be higher up to 2500 attack,
Which will definitely let you hack,
Into your opponent's lifepoints till they say ACK,
Don't attack me anymore!
Then you can say, SHUTUP and don't be sore.

Removing your own cards from the graveyard will really lower your own options of using cards like call of the haunted and monster reborn. Also, this card will be pretty bad in the first few crucial turns of the game where there won't be many cards for you to remove. Late game, this card REALLY shines, since you will definitely have at least 3 cards in the grave you know wouldn't normally come back to you. It actually gives them a use. =)

So what do I rate this? 3.5. It's above average, but at the same time not spectacular.
