Let me clarify that. Meh, this card blows.
Okay...so you have to wait until your opponent
Normal/Flip summons a monster, use up a Trap card,
and get to...throw down a Dark monster from your
hand. So you have a card that gives you a -1 and
requires your opponent to do a non-Special Summon in
order to maybe put a Spirit Reaper in DEF or
something? If there's some huge combo here, I'm just
not seeing it. 90% of your opponent's important
summons are going to be Special Summons, which will
leave this a dead card. You can do much better.
right, excluding today, I decided to fill in this
week and squeeze in some Power of the Duelist cards
for the rest of the week. Just some nifty cards, and
better things for me to look at after last week, so
this IS indeed my final week until I return in
Today we look at Hidden Soldiers, the Sneak Preview
card for Power of the Duelist. For those of you who
may remember, this was used by Marik in the Battle
City Finals arc vs. Joey on the anime.
This is a fairly decent Trap card, the only down
side is the fact that you can only summon a Dark
monster and that it has to be in your hand.
If this were from your deck, a Sangan or a Spirit
Reaper would be the ideal choice.
Although what you can summon and from where is
Restricted, when is not.
It's whenever your opponent Normal or Flip summons a
monster, yet not a Special Summon. I suppose this
could be useful...but probably won't.
2.5/5 all around, maybe up or down with time...
Art: 4/5 Nice picture
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
Starting off our POTD week we get to review POTD
Sneak Preview card. I seen lots of whining that this
promo isn't very good I for one don't share that
opinion this card is pretty good in certain style
decks obvious them being Dark. Now for the record
this is one of Marik cards used in the anime series
which allows you to summon any level 4 or lower Dark
type monster when your opponent summons a monster of
there own. Now a few good Dark types come to mind
right away like Mystic Tomato, Apprentice Magician,
Spirit Reaper, Strike Ninja, and Sangan in DEF or
ATK which is nice for Spirit Reaper or Apprentice
Magician. Now mainly this card could be a teched in
a Strike Ninja deck but other then it will remain a
tech unless you run a Marik deck ~.^
It has its uses buts its not as terrible as many
think just try it out if you run a Strike Ninja deck
could work but A Rival Appears is much better.
Traditional Format > 1/5:
Would be better if was also when you summoned,
Summon the Dragon special summon Sangan or Witch
from your hand :D
Advance Format > 2/5:
Strike Ninga tech maybe ?
Artwork > 3/5:
It really is soldier which are hidden from something
who would have figured :P
Today we start off with the new Sneak Preview card,
Hidden Soldier. Unless you wanna count the 1 lucky
kid that got the Crush Card as a another Preview
card, but alas its a SJC card. I only wish I would
have went and pulled it, but I didnt go.
For the people that pulled this, they werent the
lucky one that got the Crush Card, but they still
pulled something for their 20-25$ anyways. The text
on this card reads as follows:
When your opponent summons a monster, you may
special summon a 4 star(or less) Dark monster from
Easy effect to read, and understandable, but not
really that great. Its a -1 from the start, upon
activation and also wastes a Dark monster from your
hand, which you could save for a much better time to
use. Sure it can bring out Sangan, Tomato's,
Dekoichi's, but its while your opponent summons a
monster(which will be most likely on their turn). So
they may have something to stop it, like Smash,
Snatch, Sorcerer, etc.
It could also be a dead draw, it could waste your
s/t zone if you dont have a 4 star or less dark
monster in hand, and alot more. You can use better
traps such as Decree, Sakuretsu and much more which
will be much more effective. We have to get better
promo's soon or Im gonna be a sad panda.
My conclusion is if you have 1, try to trade it off
quickly for alot, as its not worth it. I probably
would have ripped mine in half, but I unno.
Traditional: 1/5 ( No, just no.)
Advanced: 1.5/5 ( If you play alot of 4 star or less
Dark monsters, maybe it could help, just dont
randomly throw into deck).
