Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh Card of the Day

 

Dark Paladin
Tuesday

Merry Christmas! It is Christmas, and I decided for the Holiday as a "gift" of sorts to our reviewer's, we should have a Reviewer's Choice.
These are always fun for me, and I always put a lot of thought into them. Everyone always expects a Spellcaster out of me but here's what I decided...

I have decided Dark Magician of Chaos...an Ultra Rare from a little set known as Invasion of Chaos. Dark Magician of Chaos is one of the best two tribute monsters in the game...perhaps the best.

2800 attack (and 2600) defense are both incredibly solid for a Level 8 monster. When Normal or Special summoned, you get to add a Magic Card from your Graveyard to your Hand. Furthermore, anything DMoC destroys is removed from the game, instead of going to the Graveyard.

DMoC is also removed from the game himself when destroyed, but their are decks that can capitalize off that. This is quite an interesting card...you can't just throw DMoC into a Deck and expect him to work well.

Decks DMoC does well in:

Dimension Fusion/Return From the Different Dimension Diamond Dude Turbo Strike Ninja Spellcaster

Those are just a few places DMoC works well, but he can hold his weight most places.

Ratings:

Traditional: 3.65/5 It IS a two tribute monster, and he can be destroyed more easily, but his effects and attack make up for it.

Advanced: 4.75/5 Not for everyone, but still one hell of a card!

Art: 5/5
The First Hokage Dark Magician of Chaos

This card is definitely one of my favorite cards that's out there right now.
And he's obviously one of the best two tribute monsters in the advanced format. Now let's get this review started...

DMoC is an Ultra Rare from Dark Rev. 2 or Invasion of Chaos, and he's a bit pricy considering that in both sets he's an Ultra Rare. As I said earlier, he's definitely one of the best two tribute monsters in the game.

He's a 2800/2600 for stats which is really solid. Now his effect is what makes him really amazing. When he's normal or special summoned, you can move 1 Spell Card from your graveyard and add it to your hand. So basically, you can use a Spell twice if you needed to. I think that's amazing plus in a huge beatdown body, he's sure to wreck some havoc. In addition, any monster he destroys is removed from play instead of being sent to the graveyard. And his final effect is if he's removed from the field, he's instead removed from play.

A lot of decks can utilize DMoC in many ways. With the release of Light and Darkness Dragon, a lot of people are running Foolish burial to send DMoC to the grave and revive him through Light and Darkness Dragon. DMoC is also effective in DDT, and a lot of other decks. If you're going to run a 2 Tribute monster, DMoC is definitely your 1st choice. Once he decides to hit the field, you are going to have the time of your life. :)

My Ratings:

Advanced: 4.9/5
Traditional: 3.9/5
Art: 5/5
 
Bob Dole Dark Magician of Chaos

 Well this started as a Reviewer's Choice, but since the other two reviewed this and since I planned to review this anyway, let's just go with it.

 DMoC is an 8 star (Expected), 2800 ATK (yay), Dark (Yay), Spellcaster (Yayish) with several effects that honestly make this one of the best Spellcaster's out there.

 - His first effect is absolutely awesome. It's best late game, so you'll want to save this guy till you have something in the GY you want to use. I have ended games with this guy more than once. Infact, I'd say about 80% of the time I land him on the field, it's game over. Getting back a Shield Crush, Pot of Avarice, Lightning Vortex, or Heavy Storm is almost always going to inflict some heavy damage on your opponent.

- The second effect is once again - amazing. Removing opponents monsters from play is a big game mechanic that can allow you to completely shut down Monarchs (Treeborn Frog), Zombies (Il Blud and Zombie Master), and pretty much anything that dares to focus on the graveyard.

- The third effect is his biggest down fall by far. However, in the right deck it can be an upside. I run a deck featuring this guy and Return From the Different Dimension. So basically as soon as he's dead, I can bring him back and gain back another spell card.

 All in all, this guy does not see as much play as he deserves. He has plenty of support, great effects, and can be quite intimidating once he hits the field.

 Traditional: 3/5 (He's a Dark, but he's also two tribute. Your best shot is to dump and revive)
 Advanced: 4/5 (This thing can be devastating to say the least)
