Okay, so what’s my excuse this time? I said I
was catching up, right? Well, it turns out that
mice (and their nests) aren’t very conducive to
phone lines. So I haven’t had internet access
lately. So these are late, but here they are.
Wednesday’s CotD is (was?)
Rapid-Fire Magician. He is a
“classic” Level 4 Dark/Spellcaster, and has a
1600 ATK and 1200 DEF. This makes him, at this
point alone, and okay attacker. Just barely big
enough that he can fake being a beatstick when
needed (e.g. when you just need to pound an
opponent for decent damage). Unfortunately,
he’d be a lot better off if he were smaller:
1450 ATK, for example, would make him so very
searchable while slipping under Messenger of
Peace and/or being a Level 3 would let him
keep safe under Level Limit – Area B and
Gravity Bind. That or at least give him
a 1700 ATK. Oh well. At least Dark/Spellcasters
have good support now and will be getting a good
boost from the Spellcaster Structure deck due
A nice, respectable 400 points of burn damage
every time you activate a Normal Spell Card.
It’s a decent effect, though they could have
made it any Spell since they made him a Level 4
with less than 1700 ATK. Or slightly higher
burn yield. Again, though, the effect is not
bad in and of itself.
There are some Normal Spells that do solid burn
damage: Meteor of Destruction and
Tremendous Fire. Then there are just those
that are useful or extra fun to abuse with this
card, like Toon Table of Contents. Tack
on a Dark Room of Nightmare: 700 points
of burn damage per normal Spell, 1000 points of
burn added onto any normal Spell that does burn
damage. Plus, all those things stack. Tack on
the normal stall/burn set up, and it’s a fun
Is it competitive though?
Probably not… yet. But from what I have
seen, the Spellcaster Structure deck has some
major Spellcaster/burn love in it.
1/5-We have OTK burn. No use for stall/burn,
3.25/5-It can be used in a lot of decks, but not
Looks very promising for Spellcaster/burn, which
hopefully will be a real deck soon.
2.5/5-Just barely big enough to fake being a
beatstick. There are very few Normal Spells in
its set, but half are special use cards.
is either a slightly underpowered burner or just
a slightly ahead of schedule one, waiting for
the Spellcaster Structure deck.
