Well, we have a good week for you this week! We're looking at some cards from Gladiator's Assault and we open up the week with an Evil Hero.

I'd just like to say Evil Hero is very oxymoronix, but the Evil Heroes are all decently good, overall, and this Malicious Edge is also a respectable card.

If your opponent controls one card, you get a one tribute 2600 attack monster, who also has Trample. You don't want to give up more than one tribute, even for the attack power...definately use him in your Evil Hero deck! (I will point out that he wouldn't be worth using if he didn't have the ability to be summoned with one tribute)

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.5/5 Not bad, but Earth and Fiend aren't very welcome in Traditional.

Advanced: 3/5 Not a bad trampler, and a welcome addition to the Evil Hero family.

Art: 4.5/5

EVIL HERO MALICIOUS EDGE GLAS-EN003

3.8/5

This is an almost perfect super rare. The idea of a 2600 one tribute trample monster is more than enough of a reason to run it. The only draw back comes from the fact your opponent must control a monster. Big deal! With Light and Darkness Dragon exploding into the scene, monarchs getting more and more counters (including the dragon) expect people to want to be even more aggressive than they currently are. Currently Gellunduo is going to be a hot card as a result of its indestructibility and double tribute for a light monster effect (Dragon fodder anyone?). A 2600 with trample will easily swipe through that defense position monster and force self destruction. Unlike are friends the monarchs he does not pay for himself upon summon. Then again he can kill 98% of the monsters we will be dealing with, treeborn frog (etc.) allow for no cost, and a smart player will not fret over a one for one removal card.

O M G! This is an excellent card. On Sunday it won me, single handedly, 2 games. He is searchable by Stratos, Summonable on the first turn, has 2600 ATK and the piercing ability. He will make your opponent fear to put cards facedown as he is one of the biggest piercers in the game. Oh and did I mention he is a Fiend? That means that Doom Shaman is playable and could even be competetive. Pick up as many as you can, cuz It's gonna be huge...

David "BobDole" Hoffman Evil Hero Malicious Edge - The Goat Raper

Well it's not Evil Hero week, though the first three days make it look like it.

Ok, so we have a 2600 7 Star (Bad) Earth Monster (Good...ish?) monster with trample (Better than nothing). It is an Evil Hero, which means it has support out the wazoo like every other monster with 'Hero' in it's name. I like the ability to summon with only one tribute, as it's like a bigger Cyber Dragon. Plus it doesn't matter how many monsters you have on your side of the field, which makes it's effect better than Cyber Dragon's in one prospect. The unfortunate thing is, I'd rather have Cyber Dragon in my hand at almost any point in time instead of this.

You see, Cyber Dragon can swarm great, and chances are the monster you normal summon along with it has more than 500 ATK. Which I might point out is the biggest flaw by far. 2600 ATK just isn't enough to make it worthwhile to me. If it was 3000, or even 2800 I could really appreciate this card. But right now, the 2600 just doesn't equal up to enough trample damage. Cyber Dragon has it's ATK because it's so quick, but this isn't what I'd call lightspeed. They're best when they're together and your opponant has a monster that's set, or like the name says, when there are goats aplenty. My heavens does this thing rape goats. It's not even funny.

In Traditional, this card has no place. Chaos is the dominant form of play, and you won't keep monsters out long enough to even stand a chance against of getting this guy out and about. If he was Dark, I'd say maybe, but he's not.

In Advanced, this card actually stands a chance. In a Hero deck, I can see him having a place with Malicious. He may just end up being a good addition to the average Hero deck. However, only time can tell how people will receive him. As for me, I'm happy just letting this one slip me by.

Traditional: 1
Advanced: 3.5 (He actually has a place, imagine that)
