Bazoo the Soul-Eater
This guy's on a decline, even with Return decks on
the rise, for some reason.
I guess people are finally figuring out what we've
known about other aspects of the game for some time;
if a monster's effect only boosts a monster's ATK
points and doesn't actually generate any card
advantage, then it's not worth using up a card from
the hand for. I guess that extends to the Graveyard
Bazoo is good, but not good enough. 2500 ATK is
great for a 4-star, even if only for a turn, as it
can take down an opposing Jinzo or Monarch that the
opponent had to Tribute for. People are preferring
Strike Ninja (whose removal will usually generate a
+1 advantage) and Chaos Sorcerer (who will almost
ALWAYS get a +1) when summoned at the right time as
opposed to removing for removing's sake just to use
Return from the Different Dimension.
Bazoo the Soul Eater is supposed to represent
Beast...not because Beast eats souls (though he very
well may, don't underestimate Kelsey
Grammer) but because the picture is a giant bluish
Beast type creature.
On the actual card, Bazoo is a very good card. Even
after the errata.
By removing up to three monster cards from your
Graveyard during your turn, Bazoo gains 300 attack
points for each removed monster until the End Phase
of your opponent's turn.
This, is quite good. In short, you get a potential
2500 4 star monster and you can continue to use it
as long as you have the necessary fuel in the
Graveyard. Or, remove but one for 1900 or two for
A great card for pure Beatdown if you feel like
using it, and a neat tech card as well, although he
is showing up a little more often since April 1st.
Also a great card in Retrun From the Different
Dimension/Dimension Fusion decks. Possibly even
Strike Ninja/Dark Magician of Chaos decks.
Traditional: 2.5/5 Not as easily to use/combo here
Traditional RFtDD, Dimension Fusion, Strike Ninja,
Bazoo the Soul Eater:
This makes even less sence. Maybe if I read more
Well, Bazoo is a rather nice card. He is a vital
part of Return decks and a decent comapanion to an
Earth deck, which will probably be running Return
For other decks, if you need to remove monsters from
play for some reason, or just want a massive massive
beatstick, here's your monkey.
X-Men: 3/5 (sort of like Beast, but a lack of
