Dark Paladin
Friday

Closing the week, we look at Legendary Fiend, a monster Marik used in the Battle City Finals Arc against Joey Wheeler. Legendary Fiend is a Dark monster, and a Fiend, who is Level 6, with only 1500 attack and 1800 defense.

Legendary Fiend, whom I question how became Legendary with such paltry stats, and an equally subpar effect. Right, this card DOES have an effect, I forgot...Legendary Fiend gains 700 attack during your Standby Phases. So, one is 2200...two is 2900...etc...

It's junk folks, the beginning attack is too low, and monsters who boosts their own attack are generally not worth playing. That holds true here.

Ratings:

1/5 all

Art: 2/5 Even the picture isn't great :(
General Zorpa Legendary Fiend
 
Now I hate to see a good card ruined by being late to our shores, but this is one of them. The classic play with this guy is to use Mystic Tomato to bring him out on your opponent's turn, and then during your next turn you have a 2200 beatstick to beat your opponent with. Only Injection Fairy Lily is better at this. However, since tomato play is at an almost all time low, this guy really has no place as by the time he has enough ATK to be worth something, you will have lost the game. If the game slows down at all, I could see him being played in some oddball Fiend decks, but not right now, the format is just too slow to wait for a beater.
 
Traditional-1/5
Advanced-1.5/5

Friday- Legendary Fiend

Casual Level- I'm sure you can make a deck that searches Fiend out with Mystic Tomato. It hits 2200 attack, and then you can go from there?

Now you get an extra review for the price of one, since yesterday's review was so bad. Actually, maybe I can just transform the Friday COTD into my rant box?

(cuerant) I never understood why so much filler is thrown into sets. It has been a huge problem for years now, and I can't understand why the creative team can't design more balanced cards that can actually do something. Cards like Chaos Sorcerer, Dustshoot, Mind Crush, Jujitsu Master, D.D Crow, and to a lesser extent even decents such as Bowganian, Bottomless Shifting Sand, Dark Mimic LV 1, and others have all been commons. They're not hard to make?

So why would you print crap like Thursday and Friday's cards? Or why not hire new card designers? Hrm.

Traditional- 1/5
Advanced- 1/5
The First Hokage Legendary Fiend

Today, we look at Legendary Fiend a Rare from Phantom Darkness that came from the OCG in Japan.

This card came way too late for it to see any kind of play here. He's a 1 sack for 1500 and he gains 700 attack during each of your standby phases. This means, it will most likely be ran over on your opponent's turn after you summon him. You'll need to wait 3 turns for him to even be useful, but even then with this format it's not worth it. Too little too late for it to see any kind of play whatsoever.

My Ratings:

Advanced: 1/5
Traditional: 1/5
Pwii I've decided that I'm going to boycott summer this year. I cant stand the heat with all the bugs. yuck.

this card is practically useless, seeing as a ddv player can already search for plague wolf with zombie goblin too. so this card has hardly any value.

1/5 all.

Friday April 4th:  Legendary Fiend

 

Today is TGIF and we're reviewing Legendary Fiend, a card is anything but Legendary.  It's a 1 Tribute Dark with 1500 ATK, which makes it instantly searchable with Tomato.  It's effect boosts the ATK of this monster by 700 during your standby phase only hence the Tomato.  With its boost, it can topple Cyber Dragon in battle and become accessible with DDV and EEV in an extra turn from now

 

It's also Necrofear and Hate Buster bait if anyone cares.  Other than that, in this Dark format, there is no space for this

 

Trad:  1/5

Advanced: 1/5

 

Until Next Time
