Shadowpriestess of Ohm is our card for today. For
the record, "Shadowpriestess" is not a word,
although a Priestest of Shadow makes a bit more
sense. Anyway, our Dark friend is a Level 4
Spellcaster of the Dark attribute with 1700 attack
and 1600 defense.
For the effect, it's incredibly simple. You can
tribute one Dark monster you control to inflict 800
points of damage to your opponent.
In short, the effect doesn't warrant playing this
card, and the environment isn't too friendly either.
Meaning? It means that Burn isn't really big right
now, and I don't expect it to be anytime soon. 1700
just isn't going to cut it for an attack strength
either. Granted, early game I suppose it could aid
you in dumping some Dark monsters, but you have
better options available.
It does something, just not very well and not very
Shadowpristess of Ohm
This card generated a lot of buzz when Erin Diaz
came in second at an SJC with a deck that could
infinitely remove Dark Magician of Chaos and bring
it back thanks to Shadow Priestess, Dimension Fusion
and Spell Economics. The deck was fast, brutal and
very disturbing to play against. Personally, I think
it is a load of rubbish. Much of the time the deck
stalls as a result of it trying to go too fast, and
even if you win, it is no fun at all to play against
or even play. This deck will probably be the final
nail in Dimension Fusion's ban coffin, as first turn
kills are not a good way to play.
As for the card itself, it is mediocre at best. It
gives you something to do with all of those monsters
you just played Return From the Different Dimension
on, but not much else beyond the OTK. I actually
prefer the Toon Cannon Soldier in most if it's
roles, because it is searchable by Toon Table of
Contents as well as being able to tribute ANY
monster for just 300 points less.
