Makyura the Destructor
This one's gonna be short and sweet, folks. I don't
dedicate a lot of time to banned cards.
When we last reviewed this, this card was actually
going to be legal for a while, and if we had gotten
Exchange of the Spirits earlier, would have seen
play. But as it was banned before we even got the
chance to abuse it, it will most likely never see
If you've ever played the OCG (Yu-Gi-Oh in Japan),
you know why this thing's banned. If you haven't,
just chalk it up to combos we'll never see.
apology time. I didn't mean for us to review TWO
banned cards this week, again, I apologize, but
today we look at Makyura the Destructor.
Maky (for short) is our connection to Wolverine as
he has three gigantic claws on each hand.
Maky is a great card, one that was sadly banned
before we were allowed to try him out in the
advanced format. Now, note the effect, when he is
sent to the Graveyard, you can activate traps from
your hand. Note that it doesn't specify how.
You can send him from your hand as a discard. He can
be destroyed as battle. Your opponent can discard
him from your hand. It doesn't matter how he gets to
the Graveyard as long as he gets there.
Maky is a great tech card and obviously one built
for trap heavy decks.
Go ahead and use him where you're allowed, it may be
a nice surprise for you, and your opponent.
Traditional Trap Heavy: 4.5/5
Makyura the Destructor:
A vital card for my puzzles, and a decent test to
see if you can remember obscure spellings.
Makyura has never seen the light of play in the
lands away from the rising sun, as he/she/it can be
used to get around that little restriction on trap
cards, and game designers generally don't like
circumventing their own rules. Mostly Makyura is
used to speed up OTKs using traps, as otherwise
they'd have to wait one possibly damaging turn.
However, I doubt we'll ever get know just how useful
Here Wolverine !!! I think this was pretty cool, as
Makyura is definitely the closest thing to Logan
we’ve got right now.
Makyura’s use has been limited for a long time now,
ever since the discovery of the infamous combo with
Chick the Yellow and Call of the Haunted. it’s a
shame really, but I suppose it’ll be a while before
we get to use him over in advanced.
Makyura’s effect is pretty simple, whenever he’s
sent to the grave, you can activate traps from you
hand. Interesting in a Uria deck, certainly. Also,
in About every other deck come to mention it, since
the only weakness of traps is having to set them
first, this gets past that.
Traditional ; 4/5 (OTK)
Advanced ; Banned / 5
