Toon Goblin Attack Force
Now we look at Toon GAF, which is part of the "Class
C" toons the Japanese have been used to for some
Some things you need to know about Toon GAF:
*It DOES NOT need Toon World on the field to be
summoned or to attack -- it ONLY needs it on the
field if it's attempting to attack directly with its
effect. This lets the Toon GAF be a slightly weaker
GAF in a pinch, if nothing else it's an offensive
wall for a turn.
*It still dies if Toon World is on the field and
Toon World dies, so typically you want to be careful
of when you're going to play the Toon World.
*It can't attack the same turn it's NORMAL summoned
-- meaning if you Premature Burial/Call of the
Haunted it, it's free of that restriction.
All that having been said, Toon GAF is a great
opener for a Toon deck...and a direct 2300 smack to
the face isn't too shabby either. It has its
weaknesses, but a Toon deck as a whole has major
flaws. It's best to let this thing remain in casual

Pegasus is my favorite character from Yu-Gi-Oh.
You’ll also, then, probably know that I’m a big fan
of Toon Decks (and resultantly, Toon cards). Toon
Goblin Attack Force is definitely a good Toon;
boasting 2300 ATK and the ability to attack directly
with Toon World on the field, he’s a force to be
Let’s clear up some stuff. First of
all, you CAN summon and attack with this even
without Toon World on the field, but he doesn’t get
his effect of attacking directly unless you DO have
Toon World; and if you have Toon World on the field
and it’s destroyed, so is he.
But he has two terrible little
drawbacks: one, he can’t attack the turn he’s
summoned (like the rest of the Class C Toons); and
two, he has the regular Goblin Attack Force’s
drawback of going to DEF after he attacks and not
being able to change back during the next turn.
There are, of course, ways around
both impediments. Play Vengeful Bog Spirit and your
opponent’s monsters won’t be able to attack the turn
they’re summoned either; play Final Attack Orders
and TGAF will always stay in ATK. But honestly, I
find Toon Goblin Attack Force less playable than the
other Class C Toons (but still much better than the
old Class A ones [Manga Ryu Ran? Meh]).

Toon Goblin Attack Force
Oh goodie, we’re reviewing Toons! Today’s card is
Toon Goblin Attack Force, a Toon Monster that varies
very little from his non-Toon counterpart.
Toon GAF is basically a carbon copy of the original
GAF; they’ve got 2300 ATK, making them the strongest
easy to use Level 4 or lower monster. They’re also a
Warrior, allowing you to use the effects of
Reinforcements of the Army, The Warrior Returning
Alive, and Command Knight with/on them. Also like
the original GAF, Toon GAF switches to Defense
Position at the end of a Battle Phase in which it
attacks, and can’t manually change its position
during the next turn. It’s a somewhat saddening
effect, allowing you to use Toon GAF most likely
only once due to their 0 DEF. But you can’t have a
2300 ATK Level 4 monster without some kind of
Unlike the original GAF, Toon GAF comes with a Toon-Type
effect (I wonder why?). First, it can’t attack
during the turn it’s summoned. This is the only real
negative about this classification of Toon, making
any monster with the effect rather slow by taking
away its chance of doing any damage during the turn
it’s summoned. Anyhow, Toon GAF also gets some
advantages from the Toon homeland, Toon World. While
it and Toon World are on the field (and the opponent
controls no Toons), Toon GAF can attack the opponent
directly, which basically gives you a free
opportunity to take away 1/4th of the opponent’s
Life Points. But with this privilege comes a
consequence; if Toon World is destroyed Toon GAF is
also destroyed. Lucky for you there’s a way to get
around this genocide of Toons in the form of
Emergency Provisions; if Toon World is going to bite
the big one, use Emergency Provisions on Toon World
before it’s destroyed, saving your Toons and
increasing your Life Points by 1000.
Now that we’ve gotten this monster of a paragraph
out of the way, how can you avoid some of these
disadvantages that Toon GAF comes with? You’ll need
to wait until Friday to find out! Mwahahahaha! All
in all, Toon GAF is a great monster… in a Toon Deck.
In any other Deck I’d advise sticking to the regular
Advanced (Toon Deck): 4.5/5. The only reason they
get such a high score is due to the lack of other
low Level Toons.
Traditional (Toon Deck): 4.5/5. See Advanced.
Overall (Toon Deck): 4.5/5.
Art: 3/5. Some monsters look better when they get
Toonatized, but not GAF!
Well, I won't spend time boring you with the same
old same old effect, as this monster is (obviously)
a Toon. Similarly, this card being a Toon version of
Goblin Attack Force shifts into defense mode after
conducting an attack.
Note: Keep in mind the review for this card and the
ratings are for and ONLY FOR A TOON DECK.
If for whatever reason you decided to run a Toon
Deck then this card is a staple along with
tomorrow's card. This card has all the pros of the
non-toon Goblin Attack Force aside from the HUGE
disadvantage of actually being a toon.
Long story short, don't run a Toon deck unless
you're feeling QUITE rentsy.
Stick with a real Warrior deck and the real Goblin
4/5 across the board but ONLY in a Toon deck

Toon GAF is one of two new Toon cards we have seen
premiered in the Toys'R'Us Duelist league. This one
can be played in two decks, and the other can be
played in significantly fewer. However, both are
fairly good. Toon GAF does this: Everything GAF
does, but it's a Toon and can't attack directly on
the first turn. The difference between this and the
crap that is Toon Mermaid? Simple; this can be
summoned without Toon World on the field and doesn't
require LP payment to attack.
2300 is a fairly large amount. The largest amount of
ATK a 4 star has right now is 2500, and that won't
be released in America until later this year (where
it will possibly see play in combo with both Barrel
Behind the Door and Creature Swap, and quite
possibly Skill Drain. Nowhere else, though.) The DEF
leaves quite a bit to be desired, but hey, the ATK!
2300 does stuff. It can just sit there as a wall if
necessary. You can combo it with Friday's card if
you don't like the thought of Zombyra or Giant Orc
in that deck. Why, I don't know. Both of those cards
make it infinitely easier to use Deck Devastation
Virus, and that's why I'd play them over this. Just
wait until Friday.
Useless in General, adequate in Friday's deck, and
good in Toons.
