Welcome to a fresh week of cards, and a new week of
Shadow of Infinity.
Today we look at one of the two popular Ritual
monsters from the set, Ruin-Queen of of Oblivion.
This week I've chosen some very interesting cards
for us to review.
This is our toned down, weaker, ritual version of
the banned Black Luster Soldier-Envoy of the
Beginning. Instead of having 3000 attack points and
being able to attack twice if it destroys a monster,
Ruin has 2300 attack points and can attack twice if
she destroys a monster.
Furthermore, Ruin is a Level 7 Ritual monster,
meaning you're losing the Ritual Card "End of the
World", and (at least one other card assuming you
discard a Level 7 or higher monster.) If you want a
monster who can attack twice with 2300 attack
points, why not equip an Axe of Despair to Matazza
Plus, Matazza doesn't have the downside of having to
destroy something in order to attack a second time.
This is the ritual counterpart to Blackluster
soldier ironically enough, as the actual blackluster
ritual monster is now sitting on the shelf gathering
Ruin , and her brother Demise have recently been
brought to us in Shadow of Infinity, both share
traits with the critically acclaimed Envoys , as
well as the same ritual card.
Of all the rituals available to us most are
absolutely terrible and would never be considered a
strong deck type. This however, along with her
brother is a valued exception to that generic rule.
Ruin has somewhat low attack for her high level 8
manner, but still not a half bad effect if you can
use her correctly, being able to attack once again
in a row if she successfully destroys a monster in
the 1st attack. Decent, but hardly worth it outside
of a Armageddon / Oblivion ritual deck.
Traditional : 1/5 We are allowed to use her FAR
superior counterpart here for a lot less of a cost.
Advanced : 3/5 When used well.
Art : 2.5/5 Meh…
MPS : 4/5
Ruin, Queen of Oblivion
this card is definitely not as powerful as the King.
But her effect, if used on a clear field (a.k.a. no
sakuretsu armor and the like) will basically pay for
the huge investment to summon her. But she is a
ritual and her effect does not create instant
advantage, and she is vulnerable to widespread ruin,
bottomless trap hole, etc. thus I give her a
I want rituals monsters to be worth the investment.
Tomorrows card is :P
