Yes, Sorcerer of Dark Magic just got that much more
playable. Today's card is Sanwitch, a Fusion of
Witch of the Black Forest and Sangan (both of which,
ironically enough, are banned). Being Level 6 with
2100 ATK, he can be summoned via Magical Scientist
and serve as a decent monster as far as the
one-turn-kill goes; but that isn't the true purpose
Nor is the true purpose to fuse Witch and Sangan. I
mean...how can you, right? The true purpose of
Sanwitch is for use with Magical Scientist and
Sorcerer of Dark Magic. Summon Scientist, pay 1000
Life Points twice to summon 2x Sanwitch, and
sacrifice them both for Sorcerer of Dark Magic. You
have now have an awesome attacker on the field who
can negate Traps.
Aside from that, there is little reason to run
Sanwitch – but there's little reason not to. Though
Fusion Decks have a limit of 60 cards and 20
different monsters, I'm sure you'll be able to make
room for this little guy on the off-chance you need
a few Level 6, 2100 ATK Spellcasters on the field.
Maybe your opponent will give you Sorcerer of Dark
Magic with Exchange; who knows?
Traditional – CCCC: No rating, no reason to run him
or not to run him
Traditional – Sorcerer of Dark Magic Deck: 5/5
Advanced – Sorcerer of Dark Magic Deck: 5/5
Yay for a card that sounds like food!
(Cory's mom would be happy.)
It's the best 2100 fusion we have. We obviously know
no one is ever going to fuse it, because the smart
way to fuse is from hand and then you wouldn't get
the search. Maybe if this card had a built in combo
of Sangan and Witch's effects...
It's the best 2100 fusion we have not for the
attack, but for its TYPE. It's a spellcaster. And
it's a DARK spellcaster.
This means two things:
1. A player who wants to use Sorcerer of Dark Magic
may summon Scientist, pay 2000 LP for 2 Sanwitches,
and sacrifice them both to special summon the
Sorcerer of Dark Magic.
2. In Traditional Format, typically the Chaos player
had trouble getting the Light monster in the
graveyard. In Advanced Format, the Chaos player has
trouble getting the Dark monster in there. This
allows the Scientist player to either (A) pay 1,000
LP to pull this out, ram it into a stronger monster,
and summon Chaos on their Main 2, or (B) pay 1,000
LP to pull this out, use Metamorphosis on it to pull
out Ryu Senshi, and now they have the Dark monster
in the graveyard to summon BLS or Chaos Sorcerer.
This card gets a 5/5 based on principle -- having a
card in your Fusion deck can not hurt you in any way
(unless you already have 60 cards in there, which is
the new maximum -- 20 different fusions x 3 of each
of them = 60 cards.)
But actually concerning the card's playability, it
gets a 4.75/5 for main type and sub-type (not a 5
because we're getting an UBER card for Scientist
fusions next set.)
Today’s card is Sanwitch, a card that I can only
assume was a comical coincidence when the name was
Stats: Sanwitch is a Fusion Monster with 2100 ATK
and 1800 DEF, allowing you to ‘search’ for it with
Magical Scientist. It’s a DARK monster, giving it
all the privileges they have. It’s also a
Spellcaster, giving it a few cards it can work with.
Stats – Adequate.
‘Effect’: Sanwitch is, like I said, a Fusion Monster
Card. Its Fusion material monsters are Sangan and
Witch of the Black Forest, which are of course
banned in Advanced Format. Not much else to say;
Fusion Monsters are difficult to use without
Metamorphosis or Magical Scientist.
Combos: The only real combo Sanwitch has is with
Sorcerer of Dark Magic. Use Magical Scientist to
Special Summon 2 Sanwitch’s from your Fusion Deck,
allowing you to then Special Summon Sorcerer of Dark
Magic, giving you a monster that can negate any Trap
card you want.
Usability: Sanwitch only works in a Magical
Scientist FTK Deck or a Sorcerer of Dark Magic Deck
that uses the above combo.
Sorry for the short review but Sanwitch is a monster
whose uses are very limited.
Advanced Format: 1/5. Not enough uses to be widely
played, but may turn up in a Magical Scientist Deck.
Traditional Format: 1/5. Not enough uses to be
widely played, but may turn up in a Magical
Art: 3/5. It’s cute, I guess…
have a flavorful card, Sanwitch! This delicacy of a
fusion monster has DELICIOUS combos running rampant.
First off, it goes well with Mustard Scientist,
since you can pay 1000 sesame seeds and have a giant
2100 attack bun out on the field! This card
single-handedly makes Sorcerer of Dark Lettuce
playable because you can just summon two out and
sacrifice them for the 3200 beast, having full
protection from all traps except for soggy bread,
since they are sandwich flavor 3. This also is
served on a plate with many other delicacy monsters
such as Duck Flare Knight and Roaring Ocean Sushi,
plus the standard Mayonnaise Scientist fusions of
Rye Senshi or Dark Balter the Tomato.
... Wow, I never thought I could make so many stupid
puns in my LIFE, much less in one paragraph. Like
all Scientist Fusions, it is useless unless you
don't have better monsters to use for it. Dark Flare
Knight is the better choice, but this is far easier
to get and has the funniest name and picture ever.
5/5 for a Scientist Fusion deck.
Sanwitch, for the record, is one of the coolest
sounding names in Yu-Gi-Oh. ;)
It's a 2100 ATK fusion, which certainly isn't bad if
you manage to have both Witch and Sangan on the
field. IN the traditional format, this is very
difficult, and in the advanced format, it's
impossible since they're banned. Magical Scientist
if the preferred way to summon this.
Aside from being used as a fusion for the Scientist
OTK, It could also be used to easily special summon
the Sorcerer of Dark Magic, which is basically an
improved Jinzo. In limited, this thing is dead
Traditional Format: 2/5
Advanced Format: 2.5/5
Rated For: The Fusion Deck.
This review, again, will be rather brief because
it’s a fusion deck card, and fusion decks aren’t
Sanwitch is a nifty 2100 attack 6 star fusion, but
the important thing is that it is a spellcaster.
This makes it the only 5 star or greater spellcaster
fusion, making it important for only one thing:
Sorcerer of Dark Magic.
Otherwise, he’s just a basic 2100 attack fusion,
meaning you should probably be running Super
Roboyarou and Dark Flare Knight over it. Great
low-cost alternative, though.
a non Sorcerer of Dark Magic deck, it gets a 0 in
every attribute, unless you can’t afford Dark Flare
Knights and Super Roboyarous. In Sorcerer Decks, it
gets a ten in every stat.
0/10= In a non Sorcerer of Dark Magic deck.
10/10= In one.
