Friday - Kaiser Glider
 
(Light/Dragon/6/2400/2200)
This card is not destroyed as a result of battle when this card battles with a monster with the same ATK. When this card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, return 1 monster on the field to its owner's hand.

Some have dubbed him, "The Jinzo Killer". Although this is certainly true, it doesn't mean he's viable for upper-level tournament play.
 
His primary Effect isn't really that useful when you really think about the metagame. He kills Jinzo without killing himself. Period. What this means is that his primary Effect will rarely be activated.
 
His secondary Effect is always nice to have, but not necessarily worth the Tribute. When it comes to Tribute Monsters you really have to think about the competitive advantages that the particular Monster will give you. On top of the advantages, efficiency is another immense issue. This is why you don't often see Tribute Monsters outside of Jinzo, Airknight Parshath, and Vampire Lord in top-tier decks.
 
So basically Kaiser Glider is just a welcome addition to casual Dragon or Light based decks.
 
It's a very solid 2400 ATK Monster that will cream just about everything in Limited. If the option arises, play it. No questions asked.

DCR-051
Kaiser Glider
(Light/Dragon/6/2400/2200)
This card is not destroyed as a result of battle when this card battles with a monster with the same ATK. When this card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, return 1 monster on the field to its owner's hand.
Ultra Rare

 

First off, let me clarify this effect for whoever is confused.  The first part is pretty self-explanatory.  If Jinzo attacks it, whether Kaiser Glider is in defense or attack, Kaiser Glider will not be destroyed.  You could use this effect to ram it into any 2400 monster (Jinzo, Amphibian Beast, Beast of Talwar, etc.) Their monster would die, and your Kaiser Glider will live.  The second part involves Kaiser Glider being “destroyed.”  This means that if Kaiser Glider dies as a result of battle, from a Raigeki, Dark Hole, Mirror Force, or even Chain Destruction, his second effect will activate. However, if it gets to the graveyard through Confiscation, Graceful Charity, or by tributing, its effect will not activate.  Now the effect of returning a monster has never been a great effect, but then again, it’s not that bad either.  You could return your opponent’s Vampire Lord, a facedown monster, or even a monster on your side of the field.

 

Let’s see, Kaiser Glider’s stats aren’t so bad.  It has a high attack for a one-tribute monster, and with its effect, Kaiser Glider becomes the third strongest one-tribute monster (Behind Dark Ruler Ha Des and Summoned Skull).  Its high defense, which can be good in certain situations, make it unsearchable by Witch of the Black Forest , so it loses some of its speed.   In addition, its effect of returning one monster when destroyed can be used multiple times, so you could end up returning multiple monsters per duel.

 

The best place, deck-wise, I can see for Kaiser Glider, would be in a Dragon Deck.   Using the Lord of D. + Flute of Summoning Dragon combo you by-pass his one-tribute requirement, getting possibly two Kaiser Glider’s on the field, and practically guaranteeing the return of one or two monsters on the field.

 

Tourney Rating – 2.9/5.0 Pretty good card, although there are a lot better one-tribute monsters than this one.

 

Casual Rating – This would definitely be a fun card to play with and test out.

 

Artwork – 4.5/5.0 absolutely stunning, original artwork.

 

Closing Line - (after dying) go my dragon, glide passed those jinzos and talwars...to your buddy hane hane...
