Freya, Spirit of Victory

This is a good example of a money card solely based on rarity. I understand UDE wanted to throw a lot of extra fairies in this set, but this one isn't enough to make me want to play the deck.

This review will be short, as I have a very easy way to show why this card won't see play.

This card can't be selected as an attack target if you have other fairies, and grants a 400/400 boost to all fairies. Sounds A LOT like Command Knight, who does the same thing for Warriors (without the DEF). Except he has a 1200/1900 for initial stats.

Now look at most Warrior Toolbox decks that you see either on Metagame, or in other tournament coverage. How often do you see Command Knight? Not all that often. If a 1200/1900 with those effects isn't worth playing, a 100/100 sure as heck isn't.

This card earns a 2/5 at best.

Freya-Spirit of Victory is card for today. Upon first glance, she may look like garbage. A Level 1 monster with only 100 attack 100 defense points. Not a whole lot working in your favor right there, but she can be quite the asset to a Fairy deck.

As long as you control Freya, she adds 400 attack and defense points to ALL Fairy monsters you control. Cool, power bonus for you, it wouldn't be half as good if she powered up ALL Fairy monsters. Plus, she cannot be attacked if you control at least one other Fairy type monster.

So...if you controlled two Freyas, they both couldn't be attacked, and they would each have 1200 attack points. Let's look at that, what is a fairly commonly played Fairy...Airknight Parshath? That would turn Airknight into a one tribute 2700 attack monster with Trample and Draw Power.

Hot...sexily hot.

Ratings:

4/5 Fairy
1/5 elsewhere

Art: 4/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Freya :
Doesn't this already exist? Oh, no no quite. I forgive them.

Ehm, ATK boosts aren't the most interesting thing in the world, and I'm not even sure if you can form that lovely "No, you can't attack me," soft lock by having two copies in play (doubt it myself). Yes having multiples in play gives you and unstoppable army of Fairies, but most of them were good enough to start with.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
Fairy: 2.5/5

Share and enjoy,

I actually own this card, imagine me with a secret rare before any card troopers:( Her effect is pointless, her stats are too low, and she is the kind of girl we'd all like to meet. Athletic, happy, killer body, etc. But as the old saying goes, looks can only take you so far. If your one dimensional, outside of trade bait and the "look at my shiny new card" expressions she is about as playable in this game as a Magic/Vs./Black Jack card. Effects that do not provide any way to generate advantage better have stats or something along those lines to make advantage pushes be possible. Less than 1000 attack means even skelengel and Sangan eat her for dinner.
Turkeyspit Freya, Spirit of Victory

I don't know which is more pathetic: this card, or the fact that someone beat the odds, and pulled it from a STON pack as a Secret Rare.

When a Secret Rare is selling on eBay for about $5 USD, that should tell you all something.

Plain and simple: if you are using mainly LIGHT attribute Fairy-type monsters, then run Hoshiningen. If you are running EARTH attribute Fairy-type monsters, then who cares about this card, as Mudora boosts it's own stats.

Pure garbage.

-------------------------------------------

Traditional:
1/5 - It's LIGHT...dotdotdot

Advanced:
1/5 - If this were the last Fairy-type Monster on EARTH...I would run something other then a Fairy Deck before I mained her.

Card Art:
1/5 - A Cheerleader? Seriously?!

On we go with one of Strike of Neos’ Secret Rares…

Freya, Spirit of Victory

STON-EN064
Light/Fairy/1/100/100
While you control a Fairy-type monster other than "Freya, Spirit of Victory", this card cannot be selected as an attack target. All Fairy-type monsters you control gain 400 attack and defense points.

So, this lil girl is certainly searchable being a light monster with 100 attack and defense. It gives all fairy monsters you control 400 more attack and defense. And if it isn’t the only fairy, it can’t be attacked. Thing is this, you can play Luminous Spark, which gives 500 attack. And Luminous Spark only needs protection from S/T removal. Freya needs protection from effects, and from attacks. I’d rather go with Spark, if anything. Stat boosting effects usually aren’t worth it, other than Rush Recklessly and Shrink.

So, overall, this lil monster just isn’t worth it. If it’s own stats were better, and if the boost was bigger, maybe. But as it stands now, no, it isn’t worth protecting.

Advanced: 1.5/5

So today we are looking at a card that could have been quite useful, Freya Spirit of Victory. Similar to other elemental and type lockdown monsters, Freya can prevent being attacked. Unfortunately they decided to give it a clause of this only working when the other monster is not a Freya. WHY? Things like Marauding Captain and Magician’s Valkryie do not currently cause that much trouble. Freya lost significant playability due to not being able to establish one of these locks.

This is unfortunate because she already had low playability to begin with. With only 100/100 in stats you are left with quite a fragile monster, regardless that she gives herself and other +400/+400. A lockdown of two would only have been two fairies at 900/900, that’s not scary. Thanks to these inherent flaws Freya is left to a support role in a fairy deck, most likely as an add-on to the counter based version. Leaving various situations during which this monster will be quite dead weight.

It has uses, but it could have had so many more. I so hate wasted potential.

Traditional: 2.5/5
Advanced: 2.75/5
