ExMinion OfDarkness
Monk Fighter

Welcome to Monk week! This week, we're reviewing the "monk" series of cards from The Lost Millennium, as a special request from the Head Honcho himself, Pojo. That doesn't mean I'm going to be overly nice in the reviews though :p

This card's effect isn't great, even in its themed deck -- the strength comes from its combo card, Lone Wolf (which we'll get to later in the week).

The battle damage isn't so much of an issue -- we play Tomato, Giant Rat, etc. in ATK mode and tend to not worry about the damage that a Monarch or Cyber Dragon would punch through. ON ITS OWN, the card blows (although it does get points for being Rat-searchable, at least in a Monk deck.)

2.5/5 in the Monk deck, but 1/5 overall. My reviews tend to be short for sub-par cards if you haven't noticed.
 

Ryoga
Monk Fighter:
And for your reading pleasure, we present Monk week; a special grouping of cards related to those bald guys in orange gowns you see in Disney.

Sadly, in being transfered to card form, their more interesting aspects seem to have disapeared. Monk Fighter is a basic start. 1300 ATK is rubbish, not even being able to floor a magically inclined tomato.
His effect ignores the beating you'll get when he's attacked, but his uselessness on the field is unavoidable. The only real reason to play him is to activate the other cards in this week.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5

Share and enjoy,
Ryoga

Battle Damage to this card's controller that he/she takes from a battle involving this card becomes 0.

This card is not really all that bad on its own, it just gets overshadowed by bigger/better monsters like Don Zaloog and Cyber Dragon.

As a tech card against Cyber Stein I can see it being a killer investment. The ability to attack without fear of LP loss is quite powerful.

Outside of that scenario and a Master Monk Deck...

This card gets a 2/5. Even though it can be useful, I like monsters with gumption. I like monsters with killer stats. I like monsters that warrant an opponent to drop smashing ground. This thins gets killed by the everyday recruiter.

Monk Fighter

Monk Fighter is the center piece to all of the cards we will be reviewing this week. Sitting at 1300 ATK he won’t be destroying many monsters in battle. The good part is that you do not take Battle Damage involving this monsters and another. So, if Monk Fighter is going to get hit by a large creature…perhaps Cyber Twin Dragon or Zaborg the Thunder Monarch you won’t take anything. Not taking that 1000+ LP damage can really make a difference in the long run.

Last Word: Monk Fighter is decent. His ATK and DEF stats are not worthy enough to play him in a normal deck, BUT you don’t take damage. That’s a good thing. Especially considering that you will need him to bring out Master Monk and use any of the other cool cards we’ve got coming up this week.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 3/5

Monk Fighter - Monday

Today we look at Monk Fighter from the TLM set. This might be a short review but only because I dont think its any good.

All it does is make any battle damaged inflicted to your Lp's 0. Monk Fighter still dies. He has only 1300 attack and 1000 defense, so it dies to Cyber Dragon. The only good thing is that it can bring out a Master Monk, which ironically is crap too.

Dont use please, you will hurt your brains.
