Today we look at Energy-Absorbing Monolith, a very interesting Trap card. I am personally a fan of Lifepoint gain cards and Decks, and consider them to be very underrated. Have you ever played a Fire Princess Burn/Recovery Deck or a Guardian Angel Joan Deck? Those are incredibly fun.

Anyway, if your opponent activates a card effect that would inflict damage to you, the damage is negated, and your Lifepoints increase by an amount equal to the damage you would have taken. This card would be incredible if Continuous...anyway, it really doesn't have much use, outside of tech, if only because people don't seem to care about Lifepoint gain.

I would use it though in the Fire Princess or Guardian Angel Joan deck...maybe a Saturn or Agent deck, and possibly even in Exodia.

Ratings:

Traditional: 2.5/5 More Burn, defense is welcome.

Advanced: 3.5/5 Could be useful tech, if only in the side-deck.

Fire Princess/Guardian Angel Joan/Saturn Deck: 4.5/5

Art: 3/5

GLAS-EN075 ENERGY
ABSORBING MONOLITH

5/5

This rating is only for the side deck. One of the best cards out there to counter burn. Glad to see another crank appear before urn players everywhere:)

Obviously this card is useless when used against anything else, but it sure shuts down wave-motion cannon.

Meh, it is an ok card. It will turn the tide in a Burn matchup, but that is about it. I would much prefer to use Des Wombat in a burn matchup, because Skill Drain is only three cards in 40. You can use this if burn id very prevalent in your area or at a tournament as a clever side deck choice. Reminds me of 2001 A Space Odyssey and that gives it points from me. It just is a one trick pony, and we can't really afford those kind of cards in Yu-Gi-Oh! at the moment.
 
Traditional-1/5
Advanced-2/5
The First Hokage Energy Absorbing Monolith

Continuing this week with Gladiators Assault, we look at the Super Rare Energy Absorbing Monolith. It's an ok trap card with very little potential to see play. At best you'd see this sided boarded against burn, but even then, there are better options than that.

So the effect of this card states when a card that inflicts damage to your life points to you, you negate the damage and instead gain it. I see this as not such a good effect even against burn as that's really the only deck type that would utilize card effects to deal damage against you.

In Traditional, I don't see this card happening at all. Period.

My Ratings:

Advanced: 1.5/5
Traditional: 1/5
Art: 2/5
