Goldd, Wu-Lord of Dark World
Okay, if Sillva is good, then this guy's going to be
near-staple in a month or two.
Goldd and Sillva have the same stats, but instead of
-2 from the opponent's hand, this time it's -2 from
their field -- you get two free kills on ANY cards
on their field. It's like Mobius on crack.
As Sillva is best in the early game, Goldd does his
best in the mid and late game, when the cards are
mostly on the field and the opponent is trying to
discard your last card to send you to topdecking.
Right now, hand control is all the rage. Spirit
Reapers, Don Zaloogs, and the occasional
Confiscation all make cards in hand a scarce
commodity right now. This thing, along with Sillva,
will counter that for a while. People will main a
whole bunch of Dark Realm stuff for a month, and
then the better of it will be relegated to the side
deck and we'll go back to cookie-cutters for the
most part, pulling these out when the opponent is
trying to pick off in-hand cards often.
I can hear the debate now..."Who's better, Goldd or
Sillva?" Goldd. Sillva has a chance of being
triggered by an opponent's effect without actually
discarding anything (a handless opponent topdecks
Don, your Bottomless is useless, and they hit your
Sillva, Special Summoning it but not having to lose
any hand.) There are very few situations where your
opponent can get away from Goldd's second effect
unscathed. If they have a monster on the field who
made you discard him, AT THE VERY LEAST, that
monster is gone. The only situation I can think of
where he wouldn't destroy anything is if your
opponent was PURELY topdecking, played Confiscation
to get rid of your last card, which was Goldd...and
if that's the case, you have a defenseless opponent
and a 2300 ATK beatstick ready to take them down.
Start ripping newbs for these now; you'll need them
in a month.
Pretty much, my thoughts on today's card are the
same as they were on yesterday's card. Except
today's card has some sort of built-in longevity. It
will take out a Sakuretsu Armor, even if it's the
only card on the field.
It's solid in Dark World and solid in General (the
difference is actually only 2-5 cards, most of the
Having said most of what I wanted to say yesterday…
today's card is a superior version of yesterdays
card, if only because of the potential it could
have, vs. the potential of yesterdays card.
The only thing that changes from yesterday to today
is that if this card is sent to the graveyard by
your opponent, you have the option of destroying two
cards on their field, which is considerably better
than your opponent losing two cards. If you need any
more info, just read my review from yesterday, and
switch the names essentially.
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
