Our second Crystal Beast for the day is Crystal
This Crystal Beast is one of the best, in my
opinion, and really makes the whole "send them to
the Magic or Trap zone" effect worth while.
Our Eagle friend has 1400 attack, and 800 defense,
both a little low for a Level 4 monster, and is also
a Wind monster of the Winged-Beast type.
Once per turn, you can return a Crystal Beast
monster you control to the top of your Deck. Not
necessarily as fast as moving the card back to your
Field, but not a bad effect either. It is still a
useful replenishment effect though.
The real problem is that you probably won't have the
Eagle on the field very long...with only 1400
attack. Also, I will continue to point out that it
can be sent to an open Magic or Trap slot instead of
Advanced: 3.5/5 Replenishing resources is good, if
only for a short time.
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
Crystal Beast-Cobalt Eagle
This is one of the dumber beast, imo. The fact is
minus ones you makes me confused. The fact the card
goes on top of the deck makes me mad. This is a
decent mechanic had the monster gone back to the
hand. But to lose field presence and lock up your
own draw makes any Storm Monarch user laugh.

Crystal Beast Cobalt Eagle
Once per turn, you can return one face-up "Crystal
Beast card you control to the top of its owner's
deck. If this card is destroyed while it is in a
Monster Card Zone, you can place it face-up in your
Spell & Trap Card Zone as a Continuous Spell Card,
instead of sending it to the Graveyard.
Well we see a monster kinda like E-Hero Ocean, but
instead of to the hand it's to the top of the deck.
This presents many problems. First, now you will for
sure draw a monster, and if you needed other options
you may not get them unless you do have a rare value
in your hand. Also, this isn't really a solid card
outside of using it with Crystal Beast Sapphire
Pegasus. There aren't many usable crystal beasts
than Pegasus. This card can get many pieces out if
you already have Pegasus out, but then you have to
wait til the next turn to use it. These drawbacks do
not make this a good card at all. There are other
options, but at this point, there aren't enough
crystal beast monsters to make this card work or
other decks work so far. You have to be able to
protect yourself if you do want to make a combo with
Cobalt Eagle and Sapphire Pegasus.
Traditional: 1/5 Just horrible.
Advanced: 1.5/5 If you can protect yourself and make
the combo with Pegasus work, then it can potentially
be good, other than that, no chance.

beast - Cobalt Eagle
attack is pretty solid in the current
format, and this card can do some very cool
stuff. I think this will be ran in 1 or 2's
if gem beasts ever pick up. It can send a
pegasus back on top of the deck to be used
again or even in a crazy twist of things,
you could send a ruby carbuncle to the top
of your deck and special summon it with a
dasher, if you were to ever have one in the
graveyard in a gem beast deck. Neat. This
is also very synergistic with manticore of
darkness, just a thought.
someone was to ever make a crystal beast
turbo deck, you could also send a pegasus to
the top of your deck, monster gate it out,
and do an abundance for game, or just do a
rare value. Overall this card has alot of
potential for the crystal beast theme, but i
just cant see all of it, so this is where my
Traditional: 1/5 need a state it again
5/5 in crystal beast decks
not so much
Next up today we
have Cobalt Eagle, which is one of the two really
bad Crystal Beasts in my opinion. It’s got 1400 ATK,
so it’s not that good as an offensive weapon, and
it’s effect only lets you spin one of your Crystal
Beast cards (in the monster zone or MT zone) to the
top of your deck. Now think about it. Why is the new
Raiza The Storm Monarch so popular/great? Because it
does the exact same thing as this guy, except you’re
WILLINGLY hurting yourself with this effect. The
reason this card exists is because Konami thought
people would want to spin Pegasus back to the top of
the deck, so you could draw and use him again next
turn. But there’s MANY problems with this. First
off, you have Crystal Beacon and 2 other Pegasus
that will Special Summon things from the deck.
Secondly, you’re erasing any chance you might have
at drawing another key Crystal Beast Magic card that
could help you more in other situations that just
simply getting another Pegasus can. Third, you also
have Crystal Blessing to help you rapidly get Gems
into the MT zone. In a good Crystal Beast deck,
you’ll want to fill up and KEEP allo of the Gems in
your MT zone so you can negate things with Ruin’s
third effect, and draw cards with it’s fourth
effect. Then at the right moment, use Crystal
Abundance to win the game, or at the very least,
cripple their Life Points and card advantage so
there’s no possible way they can make a comeback
next turn. Cobalt Eagle just slows all of that down
and makes it to where you’re wasting your draws and
summons. You want to get ALL of your Pegasus on the
field, not just one that searches out the other and
puts them into your MT zone, you want Pegasus to be
your main attacker, not just sitting there in your
Better than the Cat, but still not the best. It lets
you lose a card to cycle it to the top of the deck.
Now I can see instances where you’d want this to
occur, but overall you are better off using others
that let you just get them back onto the field.
Aside from its effect this monster won’t be doing
much of anything. 1400 is only Deko level, it’ll die
quiet quickly in battle, only deepening the gap in
advantage that it created.
