Monday - Valkyrion the Magnet Warrior
 
This week, we're gonna take a peekie at the three promo cards in the English version of Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition (the Japanese get the 3 God Cards IN ENGLISH ~_^), but we get an archetype-maker (today's card), one of the most annoying monsters in the game (Sinister Serpent), and one of the 5 most broken cards in the game (Harpie's Feather Duster).  Without further ado...
 
This card is just screaming to have a deck built around it.  Gate Guardian tried, but failed.  This guy is so much easier to get on the field, and there are even some fun combos to do with him.
 
To get him out, all you have to do is offer the 3 Magnet Warriors (Alpha, Beta, and Gamma, the Duelist of the Roses promos) from a combination of your hand and the field (kind of like Fusion/Ritual).  It gets an added bonus from not being a Fusion or Ritual, so there are no extra cards required (you still have to draw it, though =/).  Once that happens, you have a 3500/3850 monster.  If your opponent doesn't have a way to get rid of it, it will walk all over them.
 
Now, for one of the most annoying combos in the game.  Ready for this?  OK, first, summon Valkyrion with his effect.  OK, now offer Valkyrion to bring back the three Magnet Warriors from your Graveyard.  Use Monster Reborn to bring back the Valkyrion you offered.  (Since it has been properly Special Summoned, you can Monster Reborn it.)  Now, offer the three Magnet Warriors for ANOTHER Valkyrion.  You now have 2 3500/3850 monsters on the field.  Sucks to be your opponent.
 
I predict that people will eventually build a deck around this guy.  It's definitely one of the easiest hard-hitters to get out, and it's simplified by the fact that the Magnet Warriors can be fetched by either Witch or Sangan, and you don't even need them to be on the field.  However, if you're going to build a deck around this guys, put PLENTY of backup in it, because, while the combo isn't very difficult to complete, it's not that difficult to shut it down, either =/
 
Score: 3.0
It has its weaknesses, but this guy could mean BIG trouble for your opponent.

Valkyrion The Magna Warrior

The 2nd strongest Monster next to Gate Guardian. In a way, it's very similar to Gate Guardian since you need to "fuse" the 3 pieces that make it in order to get it out. But let me tell you this, Valky is a LOT better and playable than Gate Guardian. Reason being that you can "fuse" the pieces from your hand/field. Alpha, Beta, and Gamma are all non-Tribute Monsters as well so you can always play them, unlike the Gate Guardian Pieces. You can also use Witch/Sangan to fetch some of the pieces. Backup Soldier can also retrieve some of the pieces back to you as well. A cool trick that you can pull off is if you have the 3 Pieces and 2 Valkys in your hand. Simply tribute the 3 Pieces to get Valky #1 in play. Tribute Valky #1 to bring back all 3 pieces onto your field. Tribute all 3 of them for Valky #2. Then, you can simply Monster Reborn Valky #1 because it was Summoned properly. 2x 3500 ATK Monsters on your first turn. Nice. If you have a 3rd Valky, you can do it again and go for a one hit kill. =)

This is a cool card and all but a Valky deck probably won't win you many tournaments. A fun deck idea to toy around though. The main problem is getting enough pieces to play the deck. You probably would need at least 2 of each Magnet Warriors and roughly 2 Valkys. You can only get the Magnet Warriors through the PS2 Game, Duelist Of the Roses (DOR). You can only get Valky from the GBA game, Stairway to the Destinied Duel: Worldwide Edition (SDD). You either have to buy 2-3 of each games or trade and buy them. Good luck!

wartortle32 Monday - Valkyrion the Magna Warrior

If you have Alpha, beta, and gamma in the field or in the hand, you can sacrifice all 3 to get this 3500/3850 monster. Then if those 3 pieces are in the grave, you can sacrifice valkyrion to bring them back to the field.

This is a better version of Gate Guardian. Since the 3 pieces only need to be in your hand or field, you can summon this first turn. And then if you really need some more defense monsters, you can break apart the warrior to form the 3 pieces. Definitely a playable card as the 3 pieces aren't too bad and can
be competitive with a few equips. And Valkyrion's stats? 3500/3850 is unmatched by any English monster in the game

I give this a 3.7/5. For the few that have gate guardian decks, seriously consider making a Valkyrion deck instead as it is a lot better. It's still vulnerable to magic and trap, so if you summon it, protect is with magic jammers or jinzo as you dont
want all you hard work to go down the drain.

Monday - Valkyrion the Magna Warrior

This card is neat in the fact that you can offer three cards to get it into play.  But if something comes up that's no good, you can sacrifice it to special summon those very same three right back onto the field.

The problem is, it requires a large tribute no matter how you do it to get this warrior onto the field.  My recommendation would be to just use another more efficient creature.

Hey ... I'm just here to prevent about 20 emails I'd be bound to get if I didn't post this here.  This card is available from Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel.  This game will come out in April 2003.  Click on the image for all details.  This game is going to be a "must have" to get Harpie's Feather Duster. That's for sure!  The other two cards ain't too shabby either.   ;-)
