Dark Paladin
Thursday

Well, it's a short and sweet review today. Call of the Earthbound is an incredibly simple Trap card. When you activate it, you can select the attack target of one of your opponent's attacks. This card does have some merit, forcing your opponent to attack a flip or something or an indestructible Marshmallon, but it only buys you one attack.
However, that could be all you need?

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.25/5 Could be useful?

Advanced: 2.25/5 Limited potential, and annoyance factor.

Art: 3/5
General Zorpa Call of the Earthbound
 
Wow. This is not a good card at all. Only unless there is a card that you absolutly need on the field at all costs AND you had already burned through your copies of Sakuretsu Armor, Negate Attack, Magic Cylinder, Mirror Force, Widespread Ruin, Dimensional Prison AND even Draining Shield would I even activate this card, let alone put it in my deck. May have been good in the first two or three Yu-Gi-Oh! sets, but nowhere else.
 
Traditional-1/5
Advanced-1/5

Thursday- Call of the Earthbound

This card leaves me speechless. I'm not even sure if the card lets you redirect the attack to your opponent's monsters, but I won't even bother to look that up.

Traditional- 1/5
Advanced- 1/5
The First Hokage Call of the Earthbound

Today we look at Call of the Earthbound, a Rare from the newest set called Phantom Darkness. The effect allows you select the attack target from your opponent's attack.

This format, I find this card pointless since it's a trap and is too slow in this format for it work. Let alone, why would you play since its effect is pretty bad and way too situational. If you're trying to stop DaD, this card does nothing at all. Not too much else to say aside from the fact that it is pointless in my mind.

My Ratings:

Advanced: 1/5
Traditional: 1/5
Pwii Ok, I'm sorry but this one is going to be short and sour. almost no one attacks while their opponent has a stronger monster out unless they're desperate. instead of preparing for that, you should work on makeing your opponent desperate.

1/5 trad.

1/5 adv.

Thursday April 3rd:  Call of the Earthbound

 

Today we're reviewing Call of the Earthbound, not to be confused with the now banned Call of the Haunted.  Unlike CotH, CotE doesn't really gain advantage and can only be activated when an opponent declares an ATK.  The resulting effect, choose the target of the atk.  From what I can tell, you can't redirect the atk back at your opponent.

 

This card is definitely useless in Traditional, Advanced or Tag Team.  However it's pretty snazzy in a 4 way Free for All lol

 

Rating:

 

Trad: 1/5

Advanced: 1/5

 

Until Next Time
