ExMinion OfDarkness
Mask of the Accursed

Hey all! Sorry for the lack of reviews late last week, and late reviews this week; my computer died recently, and only through VERY recent backups, an older backup computer that got fixed, and a good warranty am I only out a very minimal amount $-wise and data-wise. Stamping and Horus aren't typically SJC-caliber cards, so I didn't feel THAT bad about not reviewing them.

...now, on to today's card.

It's almost always better to destroy than temporarily stop. Sakuretsu Armor > Shadow Spell, Monarchs > Jinzo, Breaker > Mirage Dragon, and so on. Ekibyo Drakmord gets at least a LITTLE redemption because it not only kills if gone unchecked, but returns to the hand, creating possible advantage scenarios. In exchange for never destroying the monster (as opposed to playing Ekibyo), you do 500 damage at Standby. 500 damage isn't a lot. We play Confiscation, Premature Burial, and Ring of Destruction without second thoughts most of the time, and with so many Monarch decks running around, you can easily tribute off the equipped monster to generate advantage.

This card is teh fail.

1/5 all
 

Ryoga
Mask of the Accursed:
One mask you wouldn't want to wear. In fact, Yu-Gi-Oh generally doesn't go in for wearable masks in general.

This isn't the best mask, and hasn't seen much play in a long time, if it ever did. OK, you lock down one monster and deal a convienient 500 damage every turn, which is good. However, all your opponent has to do is tribute the monster for one of the many Zaborgs he'll be running and this card runs away. Basically, it's too easy to get rid of to be useful. Burn decks have better coninuous cards to protect.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5

Share and enjoy,
Ryoga

The monster equipped with this card cannot attack. In addition, the player controlling the equipped monster must take damage of 500 Life Points during each of your Standby Phases.

I do not like burn cards. Never have and still think they are slow. Not to say I have not been beaten by them, they just are too dependant upon your opponents draws.

I look at this card and the first thing that comes to my mind is smashing ground or bottomless trap hole. Equip cards (outside of United We Stand, STEIN AND HIS MEGAMORPH, and Snatch Steal) are pointless. Yay my opponent can not attack with his mystic tomato or searched Cyber Stein. So guess what...

It gets creature swapped, tribute, enemy controlled, etc. Smashing Ground rids the threat. Never play this thing (even in a burn deck).

1/5
 

DeathJester
Mask of the Accursed

Mask of the Accursed is pretty old school. I haven’t seen this card used since it came out. It’s not TOO bad. It equips onto a creature and doesn’t let it attack. During each of your Standby Phases, your opponent takes 500 LP.

Mask of the Accursed is best suited for Burn/Stall decks (if they still exist).

Last Word: It’s not so bad for Burn/Stall decks. I’d rather use Ekibyo Drakmord since it recycles itself.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5

P.S. Mask of the Accursed and the rest for this week were sent it by good freidn Paul Weiss. I didn’t forget about you bud! Thanks for the ideas.
