Dark Paladin
Friday

Well, I don't know what the hell is going on this week, but we close out the week by looking at not one, but TWO Normal monsters. TWO NORMAL MONSTERS!

What do I say? Both are Level 3 monsters. Both have 1700 attack, letting them attack under Gravity Bind and eluding them under Level Limit Area B. That's fantastic. Did I mention they're both NORMAL monsters?

I got nothing...They are Normal Monsters.

Ratings:

1.05/5 all around

Art: 2/5 both

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Ryoga
Sonic Duck/Mad Lobster :
And these manage to not be good.

Virtually any effect monster is better than any normal monster because it does something else. Now, 1700 ATK is perfectly respectable, and on a Lv. 3, you can work around Gravity Bind and Lv. Limit Area B (this was a popular anti-burn choice of my brother a while back).
However, for a beatstick to be worthwhile, I think it needs to be able to take down virtually everything in its path (i.e. 1900 ATK), so these slip into the ranks of best crud.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5

Share and enjoy,
Ryoga
Bob Doily You know, I realized that my last two cotds weren’t up to my normal standards. I guess I’ve gotten rusty. So I’m hoping that today I get back to normal, if not please bear with me.

So today we are looking at too of the most powerful monster cards in the game. Both Sonic Duck and Mad Lobster are very dangerous in the hands of the right duelist. That’s right duelist who work for PETA. Both offer great support for the chicken in combating corporate America food chains.

Being vanilla level three’s with solid ATK makes them the backbone for weenie decks. Being able to hit under g-bind and llab, while having above average ATK, makes them perfect for those decks. The vanilla also offers solid synergy for support cards.

I could see some fun decks being made around this, but at the competitive level they lack the staying power and efficiency that most tier one decks have. The problem is that these two can’t do anything to support themselves, and late game when topping you’ll run into the problems cause by having such strong synergy between cards. But for fun go for it.

Sonic Duck/Mad Lobster

These cards are deck specific. I once had a friend who used them and won with them. If you run a bunch of Rush Recklessly (shrink in a few weeks from my understanding) and a bunch of Normal monster support, G-Bind, and Level-Limit Area B you've got yourself the center of a weenie rush deck. But unless your playing such a deck these guys are pointless. Only run when your using some form of support. Sonic Duck works great with Icarus Attack. But unless you run the extra cool support do not waste your time.

4/5 in such mentioned deck

1/5 if you just run them to run something new. If you do, have your friends slap you in the face.

Sonic Duck/Mad Lobster

 

 

These are two 1700 ATK 3-star monsters; good for hiding under stall cards. 

 

Last Word: That’s about it. You can use ‘em with Justi Break and Non-Spellcasting Area for starters. I’m not experienced with Normal Monsters.

What did you think of my impressions of the format on www.thebestyugioblog.blogspot.com ?

 

Do you agree? Do you disagree? Let’s discuss it. This list is official on March 1st and you’ve got to prepare.

Also, stay tuned for DeathJester’s Dojo article here on Pojo.com coming up next Wednesday! I’m going in depth into the format after my testing with Strike of Neos. Don’t miss it!

And to end off this week, we review a card that doesn’t have much to review on

Mad Lobster
Level 3
Attack 1700/Defense 1000
Normal Monster
A gourmet food renowned by the Dark World upper crust. It has sensational flavor.

Umm….uhhhh, this is a normal monster that apparently is eaten by everyone’s favorite Dark World monsters. Just by looking at Goldd and friends, you would think they eat souls or something? But lobster? I wonder….does Goldd like his lobster fried, baked, or grilled?

Anyway, being level 3, this card (and its wind counterpart, Sonic Duck) are the most powerful “weenie” normal monsters we have. 1700 for a level 3 is pretty good, so it can attack under Level Limit Area-B and Gravity Bind. And being level 3, they can combo with some of the Normal Monster spell and trap cards from Ancient Sanctuary.

And, ummmm…..well….I think that’s all I have to say. See you all next week, hopefully lobster stir fry and roasted duck flam•bé free.

*goes to order a pizza*

Traditional: 1/5 (Why?)
Advanced, in a weenie rush deck: 5/5
Advanced, anywhere else 1/5 (Why?)

Sonic Duck/Mad Lobster

Ummm… pass.

George Bush: I play Mad Lobster, end turn

Tony Blair: I play Sonic Duck, attack Your Mad lobster

George Bush/Tony Blair: DAM!

Seriously this card is good… look the most powerful men in the world play it.

Um it gets under Gravity Bind and Level Limit Area B.

"A duck which can walk at a sonic speed. Sometimes, he cannot deal with his incredible pace and loses control."

Sounds like me o.0
