Blue Eyes White Dragon
We open off the week with Blue Eyes White Dragon,
truly a classic. With 3000 ATK and 2500 DEF, it’s
powerful; but of course, it’s a Normal Monster that
requires two tributes to summon.
There are some support cards for BEWD though –
Paladin of White Dragon summons him more quickly
(though you might as well just keep Paladin),
Kaibaman also summons him more quickly, and Burst
Stream of Destruction kills stuff, which is always
Should you run him in your deck? No. Should you run
him in a Dragon Deck? No. Should you run him in a
deck tailored specifically for Blue Eyes White
Dragon? You betcha.
It seems there really is no clear cut cookie cutter
right now, something great for the game but bad for
my reviews. The successful decks seem to be
combinations of hand control and field control, so
I’ll just play it safe and call it Control, I guess.
BEWD Deck: 5/5
OVERALL RATING: 3.5/5
Blue-Eyes White Dragon
Today we're looking at an old fan favorite, the
almighty BEWD. I remember when this card actually
saw play, and also remember when people would use
some of the (few) support cards to help get him out.
There are easily better ways to either get a high
attack score (normal monster + equip card) or better
things to pull out with two Tributes (Phoenix, Dark
Magician of Chaos). There are also other ways to
help pull him out, but both tend to deplete your
hand fairly quickly -- Kaibaman + BEWD in the hand
lets you summon him in one turn; Paladin of White
Dragon can also bring him out, even from the deck,
but remember that Ritual monsters take a minimum
investment of 3 cards to summon (or 2 monsters + a
goat token or tokens, in some cases.)
I'm not going to beat around the bush; we're not
going to see BEWD in any Shonen Jummp decks anytime
"I've put all my faith into this next card, so now,
let it be revealed!" (BEWD appears as Kaiba cockily
grins at Pegasus)--Seto Kaiba from Champion vs.
Yes, today we look at the might Blue Eyes White
Dragon. I'll keep this review short and sweet. BEWD
is a two trib normal Level 8 monster with stats of
3000 attack and 2500 defense.
It combos well with Lord of D. and the Flute of
Summoning Dragon of course, and Cost Down would make
Blue Eyes only one tribute. Even if you need the
heavy hitter in a Dragon deck, try a Tyrant Dragon
instead, which is better, in my humble opinion.
Traditional: 3/5 You can't ignore 3000 attack
Advanced: 3.8/5 3000 attack is still good,
especially with BLS gone
Art: 4.5/5 (DB1 only)
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

you are reading this, Jonnyo has probably updated my
CotD's. I think it is becoming tradition for me to
turn in CotD's at the end of the week and not the
beginning. The fact that next week's cards haven't
been chosen yet doesn't help. Anyway, if you want to
read any of them, Tuesday is rather good and offers
an interesting rating, and Thursday is brief enough
that you could have finished it twice in the amount
of time it took you to read this little aside.
Perhaps thrice by now. I wouldn't particularly
recommend reading any of the others, although if you
enjoy my abortions of wit and intellect, you will
want to give them a read. The task of reviewing such
powerful and combolicious cards has sucked my prose
and linguistic skills dry. And I consider myself
quite the cunning linguist. Tuesday is probably the
best this week.
I think I'll take today to make a joke review.
Have you noticed that this game is racist? Blue-Eyes
White Arya- er, Dragon is far more powerful than
Red-Eyes BLACK Dragon, and the DARK Magician can't
hold a candle to BEWD until a white chick helps him.
Oh, and Magical Scientist is Hitler.
Don't play this card. That's what the neo-Nazi
bastards want you to do. Instead, play the beautiful
and exotic* Amazonesses, or the Silent Swordsmen or
Magicians. The mute and blue-skinned are quite
well-represented in this game.
Here's to seeing a black man on a YGO! Card;

For the real review, this card is horrible unless
you've already top 8'd and decide to side this in
for fun, or you're building a BEWD-themed deck. Sad
how I can joke around for a greater length of time
than I can give an insightful review of a card's
5/5 BEWD deck
