Newdoria

Welcome back, old friend.

Today we're reviewing Newdoria, one of the most forgotten-about older cards that has seen a resurgence in play lately.

Even back in the Chaos days, it had all the right stats -- Dark, ATK under 1500, and a free removal effect upon getting killed in battle -- doesn't even have to take out the thing that destroyed it (so it gets the "stops two attacks" thing that Tsukuyomi had going for it.)

Newdoria is a good fit for our environment right now; it's anti-Asura Priest, so they either nuke their Asura and you get a reduced or open field to attack into next turn, or they leave it and either have to waste another removal card or let you attack with it next turn. It's not as good against the Hydrogeddons, but there are other options for that, and other defensive cards that can serve that purpose.

It's still good, and the only decent Tomatoable monster removal card we have.

3.75/5 Advanced
1/5 Traditional
 

Ryoga
Newdoria:
This card continues to perpetuate the myth that hunched shuffling creatures are evil harbingers of destruction.

A fairly standard inclusion in a Strike Ninja deck or any similar Mystic Tomato toolbox, Newdoria is fairly similar in use to D.D. Assailant. Your opponent is going to lose a card to get rid of this thing, either a monster of your choice, which in some way is more powerful than DDA as you can choose a face-down you don't like the look of, or through an s/t method. The reason for not being a standard inclusion is the meager 1200 ATK, making Newdoria a strictly defensive card.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

Newdoria

Newdoria is one of those cards that will pop into a format every now and then. He’s great for dealing with Asura Priest. He’s also a great Creature Swap target against your opponent’s 2+ monsters. I’ve always liked Newdoria because of his ability to destroy ANY monster on the field. You’d be surprised how many opponents won’t attack this guy.

Last Word: There isn’t much I can tell you that you don’t already know. Newdoria is an excellent card.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 4/5

Newdoria - Monday's Review

Again I'd like to say sorry for the way my CoTD looks(if it looks like a sentence it 1 line done or so, its not me.

Ahh finally a good card to review. Today we look at Newdoria from the Pgd set. Although this card may be weak in stats, it does have a good effect to back itself up.

Basically once it gets destroyed in battle and sent to graveyard, select 1 monster card on the field and destroy it. It could be the monster that killed it or another 1 of his monsters. Or perhaps it can be one of your monsters too.

Tomato's can bring this thing out easily, and you can always suicide this into a big threat and clear the path out for Cybers, or other big monsters to attack. Might not be as good as last format but still a very good choice.

Ratings:
Traditional: 1.5/5
Advanced: 3/5

Newdoria

Having controlled a lot of games with him during the Columbus regional, this monster has proven his worth. Aggression, monster removal, Ninja food, Necrofear food, etc.

MikeJ Newdoria

Basic Summary: Well before I review this card today since this card does remind me of Strike Ninja that I’am greatly disappointed that none have Top 8 the last two SJC in the new format without Chaos Sorcerer to hinder it. Now after that little sidetrack back to the card…When I think of Newdoria it reminds that Pgd was the true start of one of most decent deck types Tomato Control with the released of Don Zaloog, Newdoria, and most important Spirit Reaper. Now being Dark it can benefits the Strike Ninja deck greatly as searchable ( Last Will, Mystic Tomato/Dark, and Sangan/Dark ) or added removal for a Fiend deck or Tomato Control if you’re not already running Zaborg the Thunder Monarch. Its ATK/DEF are rather decent since 1200 isn’t really bad it can take some things being play nowadays, Its effect in battle is what really matters since Newdoria is a greatly improved Man-Eater Bug back in the day only second to Exiled Force for 1:1 monster removal in the form of a monster. Now it goes without saying that Tomato Control should be packing at least x2 of these to make up for the restriction of Spirit Reaper ( which was needed ) or Dark monster removal for Strike Ninja which would most likely be running Mystic Tomato also.

Conclusion: Now just because I said that Strike Ninja hasn’t made Top 8 SJC doesn’t hinder my review of Newdoria I would just like to see one someday not just Chaos decks that just minus the Chaos part =/ but the Top 8 of Gearfreed/Blast with Chains made me hopefull for it.

Traditional Format > 1/5: Not really effective there soo much monster removal is done through effect in my opinion little gets destroyed through battle here.

Advance Format > 3.5/5: In general it’s a rather decent card but the review for Strike Ninja/Tomato Control is 5/5

Artwork > 3/5: Its rather cool looking for a green haired freakish thing >.>

Dark Maltos
Newdoria

Anyone miss me? Thought not, well if you hadn’t noticed I missed all of last week, but I’m here now and that’s what matters. So, Newdoria.

I’ve been using Newdoria for a LONG time in my fiend deck, WELL before it was cool. He’s a handy - dandy piece of removal, arguably as good as DD Warrior lady since he may only destroy monsters when he’s destroyed in battle, but he can select ANY monster on the field to nuke. That’s why he’s near staple in fiend, Necro food and monster destruction in a tomato-able little critter.

That’s where Newdoria’s other handy feature comes in. He’s also near staple in Tomato control where he pops up to give Cyber Dragon’s hell . Typically with a New-icide (that’s just hilarious, you watch that phrase catch on) , but with 1200 attack that’s not bad. 1200 is pretty much enough these days to scrape by , so by all means stick him in.

Traditional ; 3/5 Fairly decent here, also being note-worthingly dark.
Advanced : 4/5 1 for 1 in monster form is fair, and this offers great support to fiends.

Art ; 3/5 There’s parts I really like, and parts I don’t.
MPS : 4/5 Classic Maltos
