We open the week with another Secret Rare from Light of Destruction, this one being Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo...say it with me Pachy-ceph-a-lo.  Anyway, this sort of seems like a waste of a Secret spot, but let's see.

 

Our female Dinosaur friend is somewhat appropriately a Rock-type monster, who is Level 4, with a miserable 1200 attack and an equally paltry 1300 defense.  This card has two effects.  The first being that she prevents both players from Special Summoning any monsters.

 

Preventing your opponent from Special Summoning monsters, especially in this Format, is a very good thing.  However, being prevented from Special Summoning monsters yourself, is a very bad thing.

 

Secondly, when flipped face-up, Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo destroys all Special Summoned monsters on the Field.  This could also effect you negatively, but a smart player would strategically use this when it wouldn't hurt them at all.  Hell, a smart player wouldn't use this at all.

Todayʼs card up for review is Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo. This by far my favorite monster in the set, and one of my favorites of alltime!!! Itʼs statss could be a little better, but its effect makes up for it. While it is face up, no monsters can be special summoned. With all of the special summoning monsters being used, this guy could quite possibly be the answer to all of the problems. I feel once someone finds the right build to utilize this card, and Royal Oppression, it could quite possibly be a powerhouse. You can basically splash this card in any of your decks that doesnʼt hugely revolve around special summoning monsters.

The main decks that I can see this card in is: Gadgets, and anti-meta. If you donʼt have any of this card yet, I advise you get some ASAP. I can see this card being huge, if we donʼt get a good banlist(Like we always do)

Adv: 4/5
Trad: 2/5

Fossil dyna pachyo is interesting, a nice counter to DAD, but there are also my body as a sheild, divine wrath, black horn of heaven, and a lot more to counter that. Aside from that, there really aren't that many monsters that sp summon and aren't floaters.

 

1/5 all. A tad overkill.
