Not a bad beatstick for an Alien deck.
1800 is good enough to take out most non-Tribute,
non-Cyber Dragon monsters, and an opponent will
either have to waste a card or effect on this, or
get stuck with 2 A-Counters on the monster that
killed it (which is either a -600 ATK or a way to
take control of that monster for a couple of turns,
depending on what other Alien monsters or cards you
So it's kinda like Dark Jeroid, kinda like a Snatch
Steal, kinda like Red Moon Baby...having similar
effects to other decent or quasi-decent monsters is
better than having no effect, or having an effect
that sucks horribly.
Needless to say, if you run an Alien deck, you run 3
of this as it's some of the best support you can
I like Aliens in most forms, including the movie
(though it's better without the 's'). However, the
A-Counter mechanic isn't that great (until such time
as they give us a card let lets us move A-Counters
from dead monsters to others). This isn't a very
effective way of getting counters onto monsters, as
1800 ATK is often destroyed by more s/t based
methods than battle, and why would someone want to
help you out by attacking it? This is a actually a
monster that would have been better with smaller
stats in my opinion.
One of the more playable Alien’s recently released
to us in POTD.
Aliens revolve around A counters, monsters with them
on lose attack and defense when battling with other
monsters. They also become targets for Brain control
- like effects, which is also pretty cool.
As Aliens go, like I said Warrior is one of the
best. Not only is he fairly strong with 1800 attack
fior a level 4, he also is one of the better
token-engines they have available, placing 2 tokens
on a monster that destroys this card in battle.
Pretty abusable in an lien deck, and a must there.
Outside of this deck though, as you might imagine
Alien Warrior is bad. Slate Warrior pretty much has
his stumped, being more powerful, potentially FAR
more powerful, and being less specific in the attack
deduction area. Still, if you run alien, you run 3
Traditional (Alien) 5/5
Advanced (Alien) 5/5
Art ; 4/5 I love all these Alien Arts.
MPS : 4/5 Gotta love them.
1800 Reptile. Yeah for
Reptiles! If its killed in battle, put 2 of those
freaky A-Counters on whatever killed it. This works
well with that alien trap Brain Wash (or whatever it
is called) 1800 if nothing to snear at, but I want
to use the Alien cards in a different kind of deck.
Dinosaur/Alien could be a very interesting deck. It
would abuse the Ultra Evolution Pill and the big
Dinosaurs that just came out. It says to tribute a
reptile on my side of the field to special summon a
Dinosaur from hand. Thats all. The Tyrannos on the
field for the cost of a spell and a monster. And it
does not take up your summon for the turn. Sounds
Bottom Line: Alien Deck - 3.5/5 - he is the 4 star
heavy hitter for the alien crew
Everywhere else: 1/5 there are better attributes,
types, and atk cards for the same stars.
Art: 3/5 Lots of claws. Everywhere! How does he wipe
his butt with those things.

A decent monster in it
own right. 1800 Earth is a good place to be.
Gigantes food. Ultra Evolution Food. Etc.
But this monster was built for an Alien deck. I have
yet to see a decent build to run aliens, but the
monster in questions has decent stats. His effect
will only make your developing hordes stronger.
Without Tsuky in the game, his defense is relatively
pointless to point out. But if someone enemy
controllers him it will come with a Cost.
Basically this monster is a theme specific Slate
Warrior who kills stuff.
I like aggro monsters, and in his deck this one is a
monster of value.
3/5 in any deck running 3 of them. A beatstick is a
beatstick. I assume if you run this your running
others. Personally I like Luster Dragon Better but
if your running multiple Aliens why not:P
I happen to really enjoy the ‘Alien’
theme. I really hope they expand on this. Alien
Warrior is one of their “brute force” monsters with
a nasty drawback for the opponent destroying it in
battle. 2 A-Counters mean your opponent’s monster is
losing 600 ATK and DEF when battling an “Alien”
I expect the September 1st
format to be a battle-intensive one, so the Alien
theme fits right in. They’re effects revolve around
battle; concentrating on maximizing your battle
capabilities while depleting your opponent’s. Your
own monster being destroyed in battle is something
that this monster set allows you to benefit from in
future Battle Phases.
As far as stats go he sits at
1800ATK/1000DEF. We don’t have to worry about
Tsukuyomi anymore, but we still have to worry about
Enemy Controller. Regardless, Alien Warrior still
gets his effect and turns your opponent’s monsters
Last Word: Alien Warrior is an
excellent monster. He has decent stats, his effect
kicks butt, and he supports the Alien theme very
well. I’d build an Alien deck.
Rulings Note: An
Alien monster’s effect of “placing counters on a
monster” is a targeting effect. Thus, Spirit Reaper
dies as a result of this. This is good to know
