ExMinion OfDarkness
The Fiend Megacyber

The Fiend Megacyber is one of those monsters that fell just short of actually being playable.

A 2200 ATK Special Summon isn't bad, but if your opponent has two more monsters on the field than you, I'd rather answer back with a spell or trap rather than trying to get rid of all the monsters (except maybe when it comes to Asura Priest attacking Scapegoats, preferably with Big Bang Shot equipped at the time.)

This card gets a 1/5, as it falls into my ever-popular "we already have something that does it better" category. In this case, we got it from the pre-releases last weekend for Cybernetic Revolution, and its name is Cyber Dragon.

Cyber Dragon has just slightly less ATK (2100), is a free summon even if your opponent only has one monster out, as long as you don't have a monster out at all, and best of all -- it's a 5-star Light (helping not only cookie-cutter BLS-abuser decks, but the PERFECT combo with Metamorphosis for a Dark Balter the Terrible.)

Sorry, but although this is underrated Tribute week, I think this card deserves its spot in the jank Ultra pile.

1/5

Tranorix
The Fiend Megacyber

The Fiend Megacyber was released a while ago and has never been that popular. Being DARK and a Warrior, he fits in nicely with a bunch of decks, and 2200 ATK is certainly respectable, though perhaps not for a Level 6.

His effect is that you can summon him if your opponent has at least two monsters on the field more than you do. When he was first released, an opponent’s field being full of monsters usually meant he was pounding you with Jinzo and perhaps some other high attackers, meaning a 2200 wouldn’t help much.

Now, however, Scapegoat is everywhere. An opposing field full of Sheep Tokens makes it so that summoning The Fiend Megacyber without tribute is much easier – and a bit more useful.

Of course, 2200 ATK still isn’t a lot. In fact, Giant Orc or Goblin Attack Force would probably be better choices than The Fiend Megacyber, simply because, well, they don’t require any tributes.

CCGCC: 2.5/5
Warrior: 3/5
OVERALL RATING: 2.8/5

Fiend Megacyber COTD

It's funny that we're reviewing this card. It's like looking at Cyber Dragon and imaging if there was a worse version of the card. And thus came Fiend Megacyber.

It basically says "Summon this 2200 stick if you're in one of the following situations:

1.) The opponent has more Scapegoat tokens than you.
2.) You're getting your ass kicked by a lot of monsters, you suck; no wonder you are using this card."

Just use Cyber Dragon if anything =/.

Rating: 1/5
 
Snapper The Fiend Megacyber

Hello to a week of the Underrated Tribute Monsters! Today's card is The Fiend Megacyber, a card that has increased uses with the newer of the dominant Deck-Types.

There's nothing fancy about TFM; 2200 ATK isn't great for a monster of his Level, though it isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a Warrior, [insert usual Warrior comments here], and that's about it. Its effect however makes its ignorable-worthy stats less worthy of said ignorableness. When your opponent has two or more monsters on the field than you, you can Special Summon TFM from your hand.

Now the uses of a card as old as TFM should be obvious to most people, but I'll spell it out anyway: TFM's effect will only become useful when a) you're losing, or b) your opponent has used Scapegoat. Scapegoat is the most likely reason you'd use TFM's effect these days as it's uncommon you'll find yourself in a situation in which your opponent outnumbers you in monsters by such a large amount. But when either situation occurs, you'll be happy you had TFM.

The Special Summon of a 2200 ATK monster has numerous benefits, the most basic of which is getting to school the opponent's underlings with a 2200 ATK monster. And considering the standard CC only uses two monsters that can exceed that ATK, TFM will likely be able to do some major damage to the opponent for the few turns it can stay on the field. Of course, TFM will do little to solve your Scapegoat problems, but it may be of some slight use when your eventually opponent puts their Scapegoats to use.

The second in command of basic uses is that TFM becomes Special Summoned, allowing you to still conduct a Normal Summon during the turn. What does this allow? Well, nothing in particular if you used the effect when you were losing, as it indicates that you were unable to summon monsters to defend yourself. But if you summoned TFM after a Scapegoat, you'll be able to summon an Asura Priest as well. AP will get rid of the Scapegoats, and TFM can attack the opponent directly taking ╝th of their Life Points in the process.

Overall, TFM is a peculiar monster that has obtained renewed uses with Scapegoat's skyrocket in popularity. It is by no means the answer to the opponent's bah bah black sheep, but it may prove particularly useful in a Deck meant to counter Goat Control.

Advanced: 3.5/5. It's inevitable that your opponent will use a Scapegoat, at which point TFM can work its magic.
Traditional: 2/5. As I've said many times, I have no idea what Traditional is like today…
Overall: 2.75/5.
Art: 4/5. I'm not seeing much of his supposed cybernetic or fiendish qualifications…
 

Dark Paladin
Welcome to a fresh week of cards and this week is what I'd like to call "Underrated and/or Ignored Tribute monster week!" I tried to choose cards for this week that haven't been reviewed. I chose this week because no one likes tribute monsters for the most part unless they have an EXCELLENT effect (eg DMoC, Phoenix)

On the note of the anime, Espa Roba used today's card against Joey in Espa Roba, the ESP Duelist Part I.

Today brings us The Fiend Megacyber. The Fiend isn't very strong for a Level 6 monster at 2200 attack and his defense is equally low at 1200.
He is however DARK which makes him Chaos friendly and he is also a Warrior.

Then his effect: If your opponent has 2 or more monsters on the field than you, you may Special Summon this 2200 attack monster. It could help but it isn't really going to if your opponents two monsters already happen to be stronger than the Fiend.

If you want to try one out in your Chaos/Warrior deck, go ahead, you might be surprised. Warriors don't use tributes generally, but he may not be a terrible choice.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.9/5
Traditional Warrior/Chaos: 2.4/5

Advanced: 2.4/5
Advanced Warrior/Chaos: 2.9/5

Art: 2.5/5 The picture kind of makes him look evil.

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
 

Coin Flip
It is only in the interest of being as consistent as possible with my reviews that I am bothering with this week. =\

Fiend Megacyber has a few cool things. First off, he’s a Warrior, despite what his name says, so there’s that to factor in. Second off, he’s 2200. 2200 is strong, but sucks considering his level.

But he Special Summons himself. That in and of itself puts him in a bit of a good position. But then again, look at it like this. In order for you to be able to summon it, thus filling up your own field and being horribly vulnerable to a Lightning Vortex or Torrential Tribute, you need to be behind or looking at a field full of Goats, which will then make you pretty damn sure retribution will come along after the Goats.

Yeah, I’m not going to bother. It’s cool, but that’s about it.

General:
2/5 Traditional
2.5/5 Advanced
