Elemental Hero Necroshade
Necroshade has so much potential but it's just out
5 stars = bad thing. 1600 ATK = JUST unsearchable,
and not only can it be kamikazed against with a
spent Breaker/Drillroid, but the Warrior Toolbox
monsters take it out no problem. And I wouldn't let
this thing sit on the field with 1800 DEF; it won't
last too long.
You WANT this thing in the graveyard to get a
freebie summon of an E-Hero Tribute. But what good
E-Hero Tributes are there? Right now, ONLY bladedge.
That's a lot of trouble to go through for a 2600
The fact that there's not much good to pull out with
it now means even in an E-Hero deck I wouldn't play
today, we have reached the end of Elemental Hero
week. I’ll make this as quick as possible.
Elemental Hero Necroshade: …just, no. :/
Have a good weekend everyone! :D:D:D
This card is not good. In fact, its only redeeming
point is that it makes other cards less bad. =\ I
featured one or two in my original draft of “A Bug
in a Jar is a Hero’s Best Friend”, but cut them
because I had bad enough hands with one Sorcerer,
one Cyber Dragon, and two Bladedges already. I think
the deck would be helped a lot by Enemy of Justice
and its mini-Heavy Storm for E-Heroes (since it used
Return from the Different Dimension in place of
Decrees). Shame that Pot of Avarice is restricted to
one per deck in Japan, and will be here by the time
we get Enemy of Justice.
Besides that, it’s not a bad card. In fact, most of
the time it will go straight to the Graveyard
anyway, since you won’t even bother summoning it. If
you can dump it with Card Destruction, Magical
Merchant, or Morphing Jar, you might get out a good
monster. Whoops, E-Heroes don’t have any. You can
get out this or Bladedge, and running three of this
with three of Bladedge equals bad hands. Maybe with
Elemental Hero Neo. Maybe.
Whew, this week’s over. I’d like to thank whoever
picked the cards, since I wasn’t disgusted at the
cards I had to review. If I just looked at these
five cards, I might think E-Heroes were almost kinda
You would only play it in E-Heroes, so for the third
time this week (and in a row), I leave you without a
rating. Enjoy your weekend! :)
I was so impressed by this card I bought two
copies of Yu-Gi-Oh GX: Duel Academy (one to
keep, one to trade back in for store credit as a
“Used Game”). That was when I had misread the
card. I thought it was a Level 4 Monster. It
isn’t. It is Level 5. As I will reveal,
this really hurts the card.
The upside is that it is a Dark/Warrior; only
Light/Warriors rival that Attribute/Type
combination for support. It has a pitiful 1600
ATK for its Level, with an “okay” 1800 DEF. The
effect does not save it, either.
What is the effect? While this card is in the
Graveyard, you may Normal Summon an Elemental
Hero from your hand without Tribute, but
only once. Now, if it leaves then returns
to the Graveyard, I believe the effect
retriggers… but that isn’t too likely to matter
Right now, if you are desperate to run
Elemental HeroBladedge, you should
be considering this guy. Chuck him into the
grave somehow (there are a lot of cards that
have discard costs) and you can pretend
Elemental HeroBladedge is a Level 4
2600 ATK Monster with Trample.
Now, in a few sets, this card might have a
reason for existing. If the spoilers I’ve seen
are accurate, Elemental Hero Wildheart
gets a second Fusion, and Elemental Hero
Necroshade gets a Fusion with Elemental
Hero Wildheart. So use Polymerization
to Fusion those two, get a solid Fusion
monster, now Normal Summon without Tribute
Elemental Hero Bladedge, and if you want to
really have fun, maybe Miracle Fusion
something else out, depending on the situation.
But that is then. This is now, and right now
there aren’t a lot of options.
Remember, its Bladedge you have to want
to use, since you can just use a substitute for
Elemental HeroWildedge’s Fusion.
(Elemental HeroBladedge deck
1/5 – Just don’t play it here.
3/5 – Remember it’s for a very specific deck.
N/A – This was a video game promo, after all.
Probably be pretty lousy anyway.
Even with the support that should eventually
come out for this card, it’s still underpowered.
really being an E-Hero fan, I don't really see a use
for this card, and it isn't even horrible (in its
deck.) Sorry to be so short this week but it was one
of those -/- types.
2/5 in its deck
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
Ehero necroshade review
So we are ending the week with Necroshade, a monster
with an interesting yet terrible effect. The effect
is simple, once while it is in the grave you can
normal summon a high level ehero from you hand sans
tributing. Now this may seem nice, but that just
means another Necroshade or Bladedge. Without any
other benefit there is no reason to run multiple
Necroshades, and as was addressed earlier this week,
Bladedge isn’t really worth running.
Already the card is relatively useless. The next
problem is that it is a tribute monster itself,
meaning running it is risking further bad hands in a
deck that isn’t truly competitive. And unfortunately
with 1600 ATK you won’t be bringing it to the field
via tomato to make it at least slightly beneficial.
This leaves Merchant as the central way to drop him
to the grave.
People may argue that he is worth running for his
fusions, but once again Fusion substitutes prove
that this is untrue. If you want his fusions run
subs. There is no reason to ever run this horrible
Elemental Hero Necroshade:
Yugioh returns to form with another rather silly
A rubbish monster. This should never be seen on the
field (its a tribute monster DDAssailant can kill,
for frack's sake). However, this isn't intended to
be summoned. He wants to go to the Graveyard, where
he can act as a Tribute monster for your happy
Currently there aren't really that many tribute
monsters EHeroes would actually want to use, so for
the time being this guy isn't all that wonderful.
However, should a rather good EHero tribute monster
happen to come along, this will be a welcome
assistance to it.
Necroshade is the kind of monster many consider not
truly worth it, myself included.
What appears to be an attempt at a Dark Type E Hero,
which basically allows you to get out Blade Edge for
free , once…period.
If it weren’t a level 5 and the effect was special
summon it would be good, but without that , its not
Traditional : 1/5 Not worth the deck space in an
already unstable deck.
Advanced : 2/5 Its pretty bad here too….
Art : 4/5 Very redeeming.
Elemental Hero Necroshade.................
What can I say, his effect is great punishment for
people using spirit reaper, etc.
He allows Lightning Vortex to actually produce more
He is another support card that gives E-Hero's a
chance to come back by off the wall means:P
He is meant for and only for an E-Hero Deck
Overall I think the cards art deserves a 5/5
In an E-Hero Deck he gets a 2/5 due to the fact he
is a horrid topdeck and requires another monster,
which is also going to be a bad top deck, a.k.a.
Bladeedge, to work to his full potential. The best
thing he has going for him is you choose when to use
