Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys
....falls down a Bottomless Trap Hole.
That could pretty much be my entire review, but it
Vampire Lord was good when people were still playing
Raigeki, Dark Hole, and the like. Sacred Phoenix has
even more ways to go off, an easier method of
Summoning, 400 extra ATK points...but just isn't
seeing the play in any competitive decks.
With the total concentration on the remove from game
aspect of Yu-Gi-Oh, no one is really worried about a
card coming back from the Graveyard. Bottomless Trap
Hole, D. D. Warrior Lady, Chaos Sorcerer, combos
with either Book of Moon/Tsukuyomi and Nobleman of
Crossout, and to a lesser extent, D. D. Assailant,
there are just too many ways to prevent this card
from getting its effect.
Maybe in another metagame this thing would flourish,
but not here, not now.
Closing the week we give Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys
a second review, and this has the closest X-Men tie
of all. The Phoenix is meant to represent Jean Grey,
who evolves(ed) into the Phoenix for this movie.
Keep full well in mind Sacred Phoenix is a GIRL
despite popular belief.
Now, let's talk about the Phoenix. Phoenix use has
been on the rise once again since the "new" list
alterations in April. You all know that if the
Phoenix is destroyed by a card effect, even if it's
your own, she revives during your next Standby Phase
destroying all Magic and Trap cards on the field.
The two main problems with the Phoenix are as
follows, however. One, if she dies by battle, she
stays in the Graveyard. Just having her killed
doesn't revive her, remember people, effect. Second,
if she gets removed from play, she doesn't return
Sacred Phoenix is still quite powerful and still
quite an excellent card. It really isn't a card you
can just splash into your deck and hope for it to
work, you really need a Fire or Phoenix deck, but
she's tricky. Use her wisely.
Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys:
Now this one makes perfect sence!
This phoenix isn't quite as dangerous as the one in
X-Men, but the self-cooking chicken is still one of
my favourite cards. Recursion, death to s/ts, and
that wonderful expression with which your opponent
uses all the will he/she can muster to force a D.D.
monsters to the top of his/her deck make for a
nicely well rounded card.
Phoenix would be broken, especially considering how
easy it is to tutor with Hand of Nephthys, if the
monsters didn't exist. As they do, the chicken is
held back to those brave/good enough to wield it
X-Men: 5/5 (it makes sence!)
As if you didn’t all figure it out in X2? The
glowing hands? The lil red thing under the river at
the end? Phoenix is back baby !! And lets hope X men
3 delivers. (Sorry if I just ruined some kinda big
secret btw guys)
Nephthys is without doubt in the category of ‘Best
two tribute monster’ only receiving real competition
from Dark Magician of Chaos. With its awesome
revival ability, heavy storm -every- turn second
ability, and an attack power on par with the one and
only Red eyes back Dragon !!! Its not hard to see
why its managed to flutter its way into many a deck
over the last couple of years (has it been that
long? Probably not) , including one of my very own,
involving the Creator himself.
The flaming chicken has marked itself as one of the
best monsters out there, certainly one to be feared,
and I can honestly say its worth the effort of
summoning, especially since that has been aided by
the ‘Hand of Nephthys ‘ . Try it out.
Traditional : 4/5 Can it compete? Probably
Advanced ; 4/5
Art : 4/5
MPS : 5/5
