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.
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
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.

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
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).
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.
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.
