ExMinion OfDarkness Wednesday:
The Agent of Judgment -- Saturn

This card is a good choice for second (or third!) tribute monster for a Fairy deck. It can match a Jinzo, is searchable (better be with 0 defense), and has a burn-like effect. If you give up attacking for a turn, you can do some heavy damage -- if your life points are higher than your opponent's.

There are a couple of problems:
*You'll need to be playing a stall deck (or have inflicted heavy damage on a previous turn) for this to be superbly effective. Stall decks can afford not to attack for a turn, and you can also afford not to attack if this thing's effect will win you the game.

*The sinister six (again). I'm not sure EXACTLY if this works, but if a player declares they are going to use this effect, and the other player chains MST to Sanctuary in the Sky in response, I THINK (am not sure) the player still loses their monster and Battle Phase, but does no burn damage. We'll have to see what the NetReps say (or have said) on this card.

It's not bad on its own -- it just needs some life gain or quick burn in order to be more effective.

3.25/5 
Tranorix Wednesday: The Agent of Judgment – Saturn

This is the kind of monster I like to see. First of all, it has good stats: Witchable, one tribute, and 2400 ATK is always useful. The effect just adds to that. Much like Mars, this effect works best if your Life Points are much higher than your opponent's.

So yes, you can utilize LP gaining cards; or you could even decide to go the opposite route and use Burn cards. Getting your opponent's Life Points extremely low when yours are relatively high and then summoning Saturn will usually spell game.

Say you're at 6000 and your opponent's at 3000. Get out Saturn and the duel is over. THAT is powerful.

Typical tournament deck: 2.5/5
Fairy deck: 4.5/5
OVERALL RATING: 3.5/5 
Omega The Agent of Judgment – Saturn is another one of the newest Angels from Ancient Sanctuary, this one being the only Agent to gain an Ultra Rare status.

With an attack of 2400 Saturn can go head to head with Jinzo, any many other tribute monsters that are commonly found in today’s decks. Saturn’s 0 Defense makes searching him with Witch of the Black Forrest a wise choice.

When using Saturn’s effect, keep in mind you have summoning priority, so if someone tried to Trap hole, or Torrential Tribute your newly summoned Saturn you may immediately use his effect as long as The Sanctuary in the Sky is in play.

Saturn’s effect comes with 2 downsides. The first is Saturn himself will be sacrificed to trigger his own effect this leaves you without your strong monster on the field to protect you. The second downside to his effect is you have to skip your battle phase to activate it, however like Mars the payoff has the possibility to be limitless.

Saturn’s effect should most likely be used as that finishing blow when your opponent’s life points are low.

Even without the effect, The Agent of Judgment – Saturn is a welcome addition to any Angel theme deck. Saturn deserves a well-rounded 3/5, his effect has some downsides, but overall a very effective monster when used alongside healing cards. 
dawnyoshi Okay. I'm going to just say this right now clearly.

Saturn Rules.

Mystic Wok, Emergency Provisions, and a slew of other life gain cards make this angel incredibly useful...IF you theme a deck around him. Outside of the theme, he only has 0 defense, which is a pretty nasty weakness if you're facing something like Tsukuyomi...but let's face it. Not many people in tournaments run anything outside of a Chaos Emperor Dragon or a Berserk Gorilla. 2400 ATK for an angel is nothing to scoff at.

The effect, however, can be more damaging than even entering battle. With Mystic Wok, you'll be able to gain great amounts of life through a measly sacrifice. Remember that the wok's a quickplay, so you can respond to your monsters being destroyed. Emergency Provisions can give you up to 4000 life in one blast! Even Goblin Thief works for Saturn. The agent of judgment is just a great angel to run.

Constructed: 4/5

Limited: 3/5

You probably won't be using Saturn's effect in limited, but 2400 ATK isn't something you want to turn down quickly. in AST, there's not many level 5-6 monsters in all those cards. 
Kuro Basara The Agent of Judgment - Saturn

Ah, a mediocre card. This set was a big disappointment to me when it came
out in Japanese. It just... uh... yeah... didn't surprise me. Well lets get
to the card now.

Saturn's stats aren't so bad. He's a Light/Fairy, 6 star, 2400 atk, and 0
defense monster. His effect is actually decent compared to the rest of the
set. It states that, "If your Life Points are higher than your opponent's
Life Points, activate this card's effect by offering this card as a Tribute
from your side of the field. Inflict damage to your opponent's Life Points
equal to the difference between your and your opponent's Life Points. If
"The Sanctuary in the Sky" is not on your side of the field, this effect is
not applied. When you activate this effect, you cannot conduct your Battle
Phase."

Not bad, but not great. If your beastin' on your opponent and you have like
4500, and your opponent has 1300, ok this is a great time to use Saturn.
The problem with Saturn is that you need a dang field card to be on your
side of the field for his effect to work. Ew.

Tournament: 2
Casual: 2.5
