Ekibyo Drakmord

One of the weirdest named cards... But it's quite decent. Basically, it's like a reusable Paralyzing Potion/Spellbinding Circle. I prefer it of the 3 though because it can destroy the Monster AND go back to your hand after 2 turns so that you can reuse it again. Usually your opponent would just Tribute the Monster or maybe simply remove Ekibyo Drakmord in the first place. It might make your opponent make rash decisions though. I prefer using this against Jinzo or maybe when we're both in topdeck mode. Does it deserve a spot in your deck? I don't really think so. It isn't that hard to get rid off most of the time, but so are most Magic/Trap cards...

Rating: 3.1/5
Yonex Ekibyo Drakmord -- Monday

Introduction: "Die you pathetic monster!"

Equipment Magic
A monster equipped with this card cannot attack. Destroys the equipped
monster at the end of the 2nd turn of the player controlling the monster. At
that time, this card is

returned to the owner's hand.

Goods
+Stop attacks
+Kills monster
+Returns to your hand

Bads
-Equipment
-2 Turns to kill

Anaylsis: One of the most anticipated cards when this card came out.
However, it is talked about for other reasons, which I will explain later
on. This card is pretty much a

super charge Paralyzing potion. However, it gets better, your opponent can
get there monsters destroyed in 2 turns, which is super sweet. But it gets
better, once the

monster gets destroyed, this card returns to your hand. This makes the card
super sweet. However, I've seen this card easily countered. With being an
equipment, and many

Magic and Traps removal spells, this card won't last on the field that long,
well long enough to destroy the monster. The second story is this card
requires two long turns for

the monster to get destroyed, by that time, your opponent, probably has
something planned for you already. However, this is still a good card, maybe
a bit too overrated.

Rating: This card will see some real game play. However, I strongly doubt to
see any top rank duelists using any of these. However, it is still very
good. Might want to try it

out. However, I've tried this, didn't have much success. This card gets a
3.4. It is a nice card and everything, but using it is different that
actually visually seeing what it does.

Conclusion: Good card, HORRIBLE name.

Stupidity: Bashing time! Upperdeck/Konami must be so crazy when naming this
card. The japanese name was Black Dust. However, we knew that UD/K would
mess

everything up. This is as worst as Cyclone rename. They rename it to one of
the weirdest name yet, Ekibyo Drakmord. However, as a protest, everyone call
it Black Dust.

NickWhiz1 Monday - Ekibyo Drakmord

Greetings everyone. Today is "Unusual Magic Card Week" here on the CotD, and the first one is Ekibyo Drakmord, a card that is quickly gaining in popularity...

LON-099

EKIBYO DRAKMORD

Type: Equipment Magic

Effect: A monster equipped with this card cannot attack. Destroys the equipped monster at the end of the 2nd turn of the player controlling the monster. At that time, this card is returned to the owner's hand.

Now my pathetic attempt at a poem:

This infectious black dust
Will turn your Jinzo into rust
And by the way, what kind of word
Is Ekibyo, and likewise Drakmord?

*don't hurt me*

I look at this card, and I go O_O. This can be one of the most annoying cards in the entire game. I mean, look at it, it has THREE effects! It prevents the equipped monster from attacking (it can still change its mode), it destroys it after two turns, and if the effect completely goes through, you even get it back! Yes, I realize that two turns is a short lifespan in this game, but it can shut down your opponent's Jinzo or Blue-Eyes or such if you can't destroy it normally. I don't know, a triple effect like this is hard to pass up, and with all the powerful Magic and (especially) Traps floating around, your opponent may not be willing to destroy this card.

They'll just let its effect go through again and again.

One of the flaws with this card is that the equipped monster can just simply be used as a Tribute, thus sending the monster and ED to the graveyard. How to get around it? Mask of Restrict, or pray your opponent doesn't use any Tributing cards (that includes Torrential Tribute indirectly =/). Often, though, the only tribute monster people use is Jinzo, because face it, it's the only truly useful Tribute monster these days =/

I would play this card in a quantity of 1, and perhaps run 1-2 in your side deck if you feel your opponent plays enough powerful monsters to warrant two or three of these. Have fun!

Score: 3.5
