Hear that? That's the sound of wads of cash being
plunked down to pick up the best TP Ultra we've had
in 3 sets.
So many people right now run D. D. Assailant in
multiples, and run the copy of Warrior Lady they're
around. D. D. Warrior is significantly weaker in a
lot of ways (not just the ATK score) but could see
play either as tech, or in a full-blown RFG deck.
The two bad things here; DDW only has 1200 ATK, so
it's not going to take much out without taking
damage in the pricess, and worse off, it MUST remove
any time it battles, even if it wouldn't die. If it
attacks a Scapegoat, it's removed. If it attacks a
face-down Magician of Faith, they're removed, and so
on. However, given that Anthony Alvarado had one in
his T8 deck from the most recent Shonen Jump
Championship, it'll undoubtedly be teched in by
The good things; it can be searched out by Giant Rat
or Warrior Lady of the Wasteland. Someone running 3
of this, 3 Assailants, 1 DDWL, and the complement of
searchers, barring D. D. Survivor, is going to have
one tough time getting an attack off without their
monsters being removed as well. I'd love to see
someone make that deck and pilot it to success,
personally -- it'd be the ultimate testament to
Had this card not been Friday's choice, it would
have been my reviewer's choice yesterday.
Well, this guy is the original "D.D.", the first in
the line. Ironically, he was released...not so
early. His stats are meh, but his effect is rather
hot. He has an automatic removal effect no matter if
it attack something or it gets attacked. I find this
troublesome, but, it can be good. Don't get me
wrong, D.D. Warrior IS a good card, I just don't see
it matching up to D.D. Assailant or D.D. Warrior
Traditional: 2/5 (I guess you could run it)
Advanced: 2.5/5 (Eh...like I said...)
Casual: 3/5 (50/50 shot at greatness here...just use
Effect: When this card attacks OR is attacked, both
this card, and the opposing monster are removed from
play and CANNOT return during the current duel.
When this card gets mass released, through a Dark
Beginning/Dark Revelation, I would almost
immediately expect this card to be restricted. Why?
One: If you purposely summon this monster in attack
mode, you are obviously asking the opponent to
attack. A mockery, if you will.
Thereby forcing your opponent to either a) attack
with a crappy mosnter they don't card about being
removed, or b) you force your opponent into wasting
a Dark Hole or Lightning Vortex just to rid the
field of DD Warrior.
Two: This is one hell of a set. Your opponent will
be shocked (especially if you have one NOW) to run a
Jinzo, Mobius, DDWL, DD Assailant, or anything for
that matter and learn that their card is gone for
Three: Raw power...you can purposely ram this 1200
attack into something strong to rid yourself of the
card permanently, and all you did was take some
damage. Aside from the lost lifepoints, it's a 1 for
1. Ram this into Jinzo, you lose 1200 points, but
their Jinzo is gone...for good. No Dimension Fusion,
Return From the Different Dimension, etc.
I really REALLY like this card, so I'm a bit biased,
but I really want to get one as soon as possible.
