Tsukuyomi

 

Tsukuyomi was good before the recent update to rulings, and Tsukuyomi is even better after it.  It does everything I said it does here (http://pojo.com/yu-gi-oh/COTD/2004Dec/27T.shtml, to avoid redundancy) but now it does a little bit more!

 

If you have a face-up Magician of Faith in ATK position and you summon Tsukuyomi, you can target that MoF, flip it face-down, and Flip Summon it again – all in the same turn.  If you have a face-up Thousand-Eyes Restrict with a monster equipped and you summon Tsukuyomi, you can flip that TER face-down, destroy the equipped monster, Flip Summon TER and suck up another one – all in the same turn.

 

You couldn’t do those things before.  Now you can.  Tsukuyomi is becoming more and more of an asset even to cookie cutters, though I still stand by what I said six months ago about his best deck being Trample.

 

And just something to keep in mind: You CANNOT target a Token with Tsukuyomi’s effect.  Tokens can never exist face-down, so a Token will NEVER be a legal target for Tsukuyomi (or Book of Moon, for that matter). 

 

Traditional – CCCC: 3.5/5

Traditional – Trample: 4/5

Advanced – CCWC: 4/5

Advanced – Trample: 4.5/5

OVERALL RATING: 4/5

Tsukuyomi

Everyone saw it coming but no one did jack about it. With the rule changes occurring only a month before, every single player know that Tsukuyomi was the card to beat at the 2005 National tournament...and everyone just let it happen.

...but to be fair, once Tsuku gets one of her many advantage-producing combos off, there's not much you CAN do.

(To the uneducated: The rules on changing a monster's position have changed. Basically, as long as you didn't summon/set the monster that turn, didn't try to attack with it, and didn't change its position on your own already, you can change its position.)

Thanks to the new rule changes, ALL of the following were seen in pretty much EVERY deck at Nationals:

*Tsuku + Magician of Faith -- Flip a used MoF face-down, flip it up again in the same turn (thanks to the new rules), and get back your broken spell card yet AGAIN. This + Pot of Greed in the graveyard = wrong.

*Tsuku + Thousand-Eyes Restrict -- Flip a Thousand-Eyes face-down, sending the equipped monster to the graveyard, and either flip it face-up again and take a new monster, or attack with all of your other monsters, then flip TER up in Main Phase 2 to continue the lock. Additionally, this card forces an opponent's TER face-down so you can destroy it and break their lock.

*Tsuku + Black Luster Soldier -- Envoy of the Beginning; BLS-remove, flip BLS down, flip BLS back up, and either remove something else or attack (possibly twice). Broken.

Oh yeah, and she's Dark, so if she does get killed, you have a monster you won't worry about reclaiming to remove for above-mentioned Envoy.

Basically...Dawn Yoshi's original idea + rule changes benefitting the card + newly discovered uses for the card + rabid netdeckers = Top 8 decks at Nationals being almost the exact same thing.

Traditional: 2.75/5
Advanced: 5/5 (for right now, anyway)
 

Coin Flip
Tsukuyomi gets its second review 6 months after the first. Since then, we have received one major change to the way the game is played, and as I write this an auction for a box of cards I won with the help of Tsukuyomi is going up on eBay. I'm damned sure this is good.

First off, the thing you have to understand is that Tsukuyomi and Scapegoat are best friends. They have been going out for a long time, and I'm damn sure Tsukuyomi will accept when Scapegoat proposes to her. Why, you ask?

1) Creature Swap. This is not really important, you'd only run 1 Creature Swap to begin with. Just listing. They are both incredible cards with Swap-a-lawp.

2) One provides intense field presence, and the other provides intense field control. You figure out which is which.

3) Metamorphosis with Magician of Faith and Scapegoat means that you can pull off a Tsukuyomi combo with both Thousand-Eyes Restrict and Magician of Faith, both of which are good indicators of a finished game.

4) Both give great card advantage. One just gives you four Thousand-Eyes Idol, and the other gives you an infinite amount of Book of Moons.

Let's go over the merits of this card. First off, the fact that you have an infinite amount of Book of Moons works. The fact that you have an infinite amount of Book of Moons fixed to an 1100/1400 works better. I don't know how much you may have noticed this, but Book of Moon is good. I don't know how much you may have noticed this, but a LOT of monsters have 1000 DEF. This thing could get +1 every turn with even less effort than it should.

Second off, the combo potential of Book of Moon/Tsukuyomi is ludicrous. My personal favorite was Snatch Stealing a Jinzo and then summoning Tsukuyomi, and then flipping the Jinzo back face-up that same turn (done on the day I write this). This is what has completely changed the way we review Tsukuyomi. That new ruling. The One Ruling to Rule Them All.

Third off, Tsukuyomi is one of the best ways to break through Morph "locks" like Dark Balter the Terrible, or Thousand-Eyes Restrict, or Ryu Senshi. Okay? Okay.

It's DARK. Chaos fanatics rejoice.

And I suppose that it would be worth noting that this girl here is simply incredible with a number of cards in a number of situations and for a number of reasons. I cannot go over every one. Play her. Play 1 at first, and then reach up to the incredible maximum of 2.

General:

Traditional: 3.9/5 Interesting tech here, but you need field presence, not necessarily field control.

Advanced: 4.5/5 PLAY HER!
 
Snapper Tsukuyomi

Today’s card is a monster that I’ve reviewed twice before, but never have I reviewed it whilst it’s a focal point to CC Deck-Type. But since I have reviewed it before AND since most people should know the ins and outs of it by now, I shan’t go into great detail on most points of interest.

As an 1100 ATK Spirit, Tsukuyomi has little going for it. Sure it can Flip monsters face-down when appears on the field face-up, but who cares! As long as the TCG rulings on position changes remains in effect, Tsukuyomi has no spectacular uses. What’s that you say? The recent rulings overhaul has enabled Tsukuyomi to become a threat to all opposition when used in conjuntion with TER? It’s about time.

So all you need for Tsukuyomi to be extremely effective is a TER on the field that hasn’t been summoned or had its position changed thus far this turn, as well as a Tsukuyomi in hand. To make this thing work, have TER suck up an opponent’s monster, summon Tsukuyomi and Flip TER face-down, Flip Summon TER, and then have it suck up a second monster. Tsukuyomi will return to your hand at the end of the turn, TER will prevent your opponent from attacking during their turn (assuming TER is undestroyed), and you’ll be free to repeat this double monster destruction during your next turn.

All in all, Tsukuyomi is the new black. As long as Goat Control reigns supreme, so too shall Tsukuyomi.

For further points of interest on Tsukuyomi and all other cards that have been reviewed by someone, visit our website at www.pojo.com/yu-gi-oh/COTD/ or type in AOL keyword “eleven”.

Advanced: 4.5/5. The 1100 ATK is a little disappointing…
Traditional: 4.5/5. I haven’t the foggiest idea how Goat Control is affecting Traditional, so I’ll assume that it is…
Overall: 4.5/5.
Art: 2/5. I’s said it before and I’ll say it again, I don’t care for Tsukuyomi’s artwork.
 
dawnyoshi Tsukuyomi…

This…card…is…GOD!!! I don’t care if you’re playing Traditional or Advanced, Tsukuyomi OWNS YOU! But then again, I’m really biased towards this little spirit. It’s such an awesome tech card and a great deck theme. In reality, Tsukuyomi works fairly well by maintaining hand advantage and working in combos in traditional, it tears apart advanced as I feel the Tsuku-Lock deck is easily tier 1, and it’s an average draft pick in limited. It depends. If you’re drafting Dark Revelations 1, then get this if you see some abusive flip effects such as Gravekeeper’s Spy. If it’s Dark Crisis, it’s a fairly decent mid-draft pick.

Oh, and it’s sad how people run one of these in their decks instead of two. That’s right. They’re sad. I feel sad for their Tsukuyomis. Poor little spirits. Are you jerks happy? You made Tsukuyomi sad!!!

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced: 4.5/5
Limited: 3.5/5
 
Dark Paladin NOTE: I am not very familiar with todays card, which is Tsukuyomi and I am hesitant to do a review on accounts of this is a very good, and important card.
I've only seen it used twice, and had to do a lot research before doing this.

Tsukuyomi is a Spirit and we all know what that means, but only Level 4, so at least no tributes are required. However, Tsukuyomi is probably the best damn spirit in the game. She only has 1100 attack points, and an equally awesome 1400 defense but the effect is why you would use Tsukuyomi, not to attack, or defend. For once, being a spirit isn't that bad on accounts of you WANT to be able to use the effect again and again.

Plus, you get the effect if she is Normal Summoned, Flipped Summoned, or Flipped face up, so she's extremely versatile. There are many many uses for Tsukuyomi (which between our collective minds) will all be covered. For one, there's the continuous re-use of Magician of Faith to re-use your precious Spells time and again.

Adding Tsukuyomi to a deck that already uses Book of Moon doesn't hurt which allows you to flip your opponent's monsters face down more often which is a plus for trample decks. Forcing your opponents monsters into defense does half the work for cards like Airknight, Spear Dragon, Mefist, and the like.

This is also a good way to take care of powerful tribute monsters such as Jinzo and BLS to make them easier to destroy with one of your monsters or even a NoC just to rid the field of their monsters. Also, Tsukuyomi is a Dark, so if you allow it to be destroyed, then yea...

Ratings:

Traditional: 3.8/5
Traditional Trample: 4.1/5
Traditional Offensive Book of Moon: 4.4/5

Advanced: 4.3/5
Advanced Trample: 4.6/5
Advanced Offensive Book of Moon: 4.9/5

Art: 3.5/5 It is a neat picture...odd but neat!

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
