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

Lekunga
Rare

Plant / Effect Monster
Remove 2 WATER monsters in your Graveyard from play to Special Summon 1 "Legunga Token" (Plant-Type/WATER/2 Stars/ATK 700/DEF 700) in Attack Position on your side of the field.

Type - Water / 4 / 1700 / 500
Card Number
- IOC-027

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

Date Reviewed - 5.10.04

dawnyoshi Lekunga is one of the few good plant monsters in this environment. 1700 ATK isn't too bad at all, especially if you're playing with something like A Legendary Ocean. This monster's effect also helps use your graveyard if you don't have a Monster Reborn at the moment. Lord Poisons, for example, are pretty worthless once they hit the graveyard, so why not use them to make some tokens, which could be used for sacrificing? This monster's even better with Fairy King Truesdale, who, with Legendary Ocean on the field, can allow you to summon 1400 ATK tokens. This card is great for rushing into the opponent for a quick finish.

Constructed: 3.5/5

Limited: 2/5

Limited is another story. It's hard to get the attributes you really want in a draft, making this guy a little weaker. 
ExMinion OfDarkness Monday:
Lekunga

Okay...now I specifically said last week that if you have to remove two monsters to get something into play, its effect better OWN. And for 2 monsters, we get....a 700/700 monster token.

It's 1700/500...so it's Witchable, but not Sanganable, and no other 1500 or less ATK searchers can get it out. A Legendary Ocean lets it get under Gravity Bind, and makes it into a Beatstick. Only problem: Gaggagios + 7 Colored Fish + Giant Red Seasnake + Sea Serpent Warrior of Darkness = too many Beatsticks already! Let's not forget Giga Gaggagio and Terrorking Salmon, who, when ALO is on the field, are not only non-tribute, but laugh in even Summoned Skull's face.

...and even worse, the token is stuck in ATK position. The only way I'd play this card is if that token either drew, discarded at random, or skipped a draw phase if it did battle damage to the opponent's life points.

1/5 even in a Water deck not because its stats are so horrible but because we already have so many better cards. 
Tranorix Monday: Lekunga

We're starting off this week with some Plants, the first of which is the mighty Lekunga! Hes a WATER type, which is good; with ALO on the field he becomes a level 3 1900, which is very good. His effect is meh. Removing two monsters is a pretty big cost, one that you might not always be able to fulfill; and in this case it probably isn't worth it to fulfill the cost anyway. It summons a weak little token to your side of the field.

This token has bad stats and no effect. So I suppose you could use it as tribute bait for a high-level or for something like Cannon Soldier...but more often than not you won't be able -- or won't WANT -- to nuke two of your monsters for a little do-nothing token.

All in all, Lekunga is a fairly solid monster with a mediocre effect that might prove useful in a pinch. Try him in a Water deck or Plant deck (or a...Water deck with Plants) and you might like him.

Typical tournament deck: 2/5

Water/Plant deck: 3/5

OVERALL RATING: 2.5/5
