ExMinion OfDarkness
Sillva, Warlord of Dark World

Okay, this and tomorrow's card are just sick. (This should give you a REAL good idea of what tomorrow's card is!)

If you summon Sillva on your own, you're getting a 2300 ATKer for a Tribute. Meh.
If you discard Sillva on your own through a card effect, like Morphing Jar, Card Destruction, Dark World Lightning, you just got a free 2300 Special Summon. Hey, we're playing Cyber Dragon, aren't we? This should tell you that the higher-end Dark Realm monsters will see play.
If your opponent discards Sillva, you get a free Delinquent Duo essentially (but your opponent selects the cards.) AND a free Special Summon. Okay, your Don hits me for 1400, hits Sillva, YOU lose two cards from your hand and I get a beatstick.

This guy is GREAT in the early-mid game when the opponent will actually have a couple cards there to hit. In the current Advanced Format, he'll probably only get the free Special Summon in the late-game unless the opponent had major advantage.

Expect this to see a lot of play once EEN becomes premiere-event legal.

4/5 Traditional (Great to counter the mass hand discard being played there)
4/5 Advanced (A +3 in your favor (free summon and -2 opponent cards) should be game)
 

Coin Flip
My first reaction when I saw this card? "Alright, lemme get my reading glasses on for this… Holy Jesus…" My reaction now? "Eh." Most of that is due to the official card text as opposed to the unreliable fan translations.

But hey, let's look at the card. It's 2300. There's a plus. Can't take on the ubiquitous Mobius the Frost Monarch, but hey, neither can Airknight Parshath. It still sees play.

The effect is impressive. I must say that when I first saw these cards on paper, I was amazed. In fact, I was in sheer disgust. My stomach twisted at the thought of unleashing these monstrosities and their titanic effects on gameplay.

Then I got over the initial rush. Let's look at the card.

2300 ATK is impressive. 1400 DEF is good. The DARK/Fiend needs no comment. The effect? Impressive. Essentially, this card reverses an assault on hand advantage. If you lose this through Morphing Jar, then you get it back. If you lose it through your opponent's Morphing Jar, you get a lot more than just it back. You also force your opponent to degrade his hand.

That said, I offer the following concessions.

Its effect does not work unless your opponent has at least two cards in his hand. Due to its "discard from YOUR hand now, beeyotch!" effect being the last thing to trigger, you cannot use Bottomless Trap Hole or Torrential Tribute on it.

So now some questions arise. Why won't this be played in two per decks automatically?

For one, hand sizes are intensely small. The Dark World monsters, try as they may, will never correct that problem. For another, the card itself is only occasionally good. If they still have a Sakuretsu out, the 2300 ATK doesn't matter much. I would rather play Mobius in almost any other deck (with the exception of Dark World itself).

For another, unless you build a dedicated deck around them, the monsters are inconsistent.

Regardless, Sillva and Goldd are good cards.

Dark World: 4.4/5
General: 3/5
 

Dark Paladin
As our week looking at new Elemental Energy cards progresses, we come to Sillva, Warlord of Dark World. Sillva is a Level 5 monster, meaning she requires a tribute and she only has 2300 attack points which is a bit low since 2400 seems to be the 1 tribute norm.

Sillva can, however, be special summoned if she is sent to the graveyard from your hand by a card effect. So Confiscation or even Card Destruction, or a random discard cost can bring Sillva to your field without a tribute.

Finally, if your opponent is the one who sends this card to the grave, they then choose two cards from their hand and place them on the bottom of their deck. So, you even have a shot at gaining some hand advantage.

Ratings:

Control: 3.0/5 all around, because you won't necessarily gain the hand advantage

Art: 4.0/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
