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

Mass Driver

Card Number - MFC-088

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

Date Reviewed - 11.25.03

Tuesday - Mass Driver
 
Offer 1 monster on your side of the field as a Tribute to inflict 400 points of Direct Damage to your opponent's Life Points.

Continuous Spell
Card Number MFC-088
Common
 
Mass Driver is basically another version of Cannon Soldier. But just like Cannon Soldier, it will be used more often to pull off combos rather than aggressive Direct Damage.
 
The potential 400 per Monster may be a decent finisher in the late game, but it's not worth tossing all of your Monsters in the early game for a couple thousand points of Direct Damage.
 
Personally, I believe Cannon Soldier still reigns.
 
Mass Driver receives a much better rating in Limited, especially Draft. Having a Mass Driver on the Field during a Draft game could easily give an enormous advantage. Keep in Mind that Life Points are set at 4000 in Draft.
 
Rating:
 
Constructed - 2.4/5
Limited - 3.8/5
DuelMonster Tuesday:11/25/03

Mass Driver:
MFC-088-Common
Continuous Spell: Offer 1 monster on your side of the field as a Tribute to inflict 400 points of Direct Damage to your opponent's Life Points.


Pros:
400 Direct Damage per Monster
Common

Cons:
Continuous = MST Prey
Mask Of Restrict - Not like it's played much but it completely shuts Driver down.
400 isn't all that much, Cannon Soldier is 100 higher.

Combos:
Dark Room Of Nightmare - add 300 extra damage.
Change Of Heart, Snatch Steal, Creature Swap and Soul Exchange = Monster Removal + Ammo.
Last Will or any other type of recursion = Ammo

Notes:
Driving the Masses... If you've ever tried out a Cannon Soldier Deck theme with tons of ammo and tricks you've basically got the idea behind this card. 

Though Cannon Soldier does 500 per Monster and Mass Driver is only 400 you can still get a bit of use from it if you build up to it. You can pull many of the same combos with Mass Driver that Cannon Soldier was good for, like if you can pull 2x Last Wills and a Mass Driver in the first hand you can pull out a variety of Monsters depending on what's in your deck.

If this card did maybe 100 more damage it might have been a Rare, but 400 really isn't enough to make this card all that usable, at least not for tournament play. You could build a deck all around tributing Monsters for a nice Burn, but by itself or just randomly thrown into a Deck it really won't work too well. I have yet to try this card out or see it used by anyone, but I don't think it matters, if you like it and can get some good use out of it, go for it.

Ratings:
Casual: 2.5
Tourney: 1.5
ArtWork: 2.0 - It's a very sleek looking piece of equipment they have there. It is a lot cleaner looking than Mega Ton Magical Cannon and instead of relying on magic It's basically a sacrificial cannon but lacks the power it really needs, or it's just sacrificing Monsters to some poor gods and all they can offer is 400 damage to their worshipers enemies... anyways.

Mass Driver's a pretty interesting card that can prove to be pretty effective in quite a few situations. Offering one of your Monsters to do 400 damage may not seem like a lot at first, but this card can actually easily end up aiding you in victory, such as a Cannon Soldier could.

It can obviously be great in combo with Scapegoat for a quick 1600 damage. It of course also works well with any Sinister Serpent, Witch or Sangan you might have on the Field, for a quick 400+ damage and a search / self-recursion. There are a couple other Monsters would mention to use with it, but they won't be released in English for a while yet, so.. Yeah.

It's a Continuous Spell, so it will be pretty hard to keep it on the Field for as long as you might like to, but its Effect could really prove to be quite useful in various situations. That little bit of extra damage could end up being more useful than you might first think it would. It's a really fun card to use, as well.

Offer 1 monster on your side of the field as a Tribute to inflict 400 points of Direct Damage to your opponent's Life Points. 
Continuous Spell 
Card Number MFC-088 
Common 


Upsides: 
Deals direct damage 
Can be used multiple times 

Down Sides: 
Easily destroyed 
Only 400 damage 
Causes you to lose field advantage 

Combos: 
Last Will- Offer a monster and get another for launch 
Witch & Sangan- Launch them to search your deck for a good creature 
Dark Room of Nightmare- Add extra damage 

In Casual, this card can be quite entertaining to try out. I played one in my Huge revolution deck and it help get those people out quick (I mean real quick). I think itís great for fun. 

In Tourney, this card isnít seeing much play because it can be easily removed from the field and the fact that it doesnít deal a lot of damage. I would most likely see it in a Fire Princess deck or a Scientist deck (for last will purposes). 

In Sealed, this card can be very strong if you play your cards right. I think that being able to tack on 400 extra damage on to what you are already doing can be quite nice every now and then. 

Overall, I give it a 2.8 / 5 

Casual Rating: 3.1 
Tourney Rating: 2.5 
Sealed Rating: 2.8  
Experiment JON Hey, itís cannon soldierís little magic (spell) brother.

Hmm, the mass driver, also have this in my 303 junk pile. Lets see, itís a continuous little cannon soldier with 100 points less damage per monster.

I think that this is an ok card, possibly better than cannon soldier. The first combo I can think of is the scapegoat launch. With cannon soldier, you have to wait one turn since you canít summon cannon soldier and scapegoat on the same turn. But with this, you can deal a quick 1600.

Now, on the flipside, mass driver takes up one M/T slot. And that combo is a two card combo. Why not just put in two Poison of the Old man? (to be reviewed later this week) They both do the same thing, and Poison of the old man has two options!

My advice is to stay away from this card. Itís a wasted space in your deck.

Mass Driver- 1.5/10
