Doomsday Horror...now this card I like...I really like. Not so much for the fact of his first effect, of gaining 300x attack for each Dark mosnter that either player has removed from the game. Let's address that first, meaning you would need eight monsters total just for 2400 attack...our standard level of attack for certain things...

Anyway, that should be easy enough to obtain using many cards...Dark Armed Dragon, Strike Ninja, even Dark Creator from earlier this week, and many others. Getting the cards removed isn't very difficult.
However, if you want Doomsday Horror to be a big heavy hitter or finisher...you want him late game. So, that's one (or two, or three) cards in forty.

However, I do really enjoy the second effect. If destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, all cards that both players have removed from play are returned to their respective Graveyards. I suppose that could actually work against you, especially if you are going for Dimension Fusion or Return From the Different Dimension, but Monster Reborn is almost legal again :)

Doomsday Horror

In a pure Dark removal deck, this could possibly get to a rather high ATK score. Reloading your Graveyard with stuff to RFG again for various effects could also be good -- but then again, it seems most Dark deck players WANT the monsters removed, so they can Escape from the D. D. them out, or Dimension Fusion, or Return, or the like.

There's potential here, but I don't think the current wave of Dark decks needs this card just yet.

3/5
General Zorpa Doomsday Horror
 
Not that great a card. He can be a finisher at the right moment in time, but his effect is just inferior to that of Prometheus, King of Shadows. He just does not gain enough ATK points in order to justify playing him. The ability to return all of your removed from play DARKS is nice, but generally you WANTED them there for a reason. It also messes up your plans for your Dark Armed Dragon as he needs exactly 3 in order to be played. He has no place in the current DARK deck, but that can change.

Well, we're actually reviewing what I consider to be a broken card.

Doomdays Horror is actually one of the best combo cards to arrive in PTDN, atleast in my opinion. It's a Dark monster appropriately, and it's a Fiend which gains it a little support. The biggest thing with this monster isn't it's first effect though.

- This is actually a decent effect, since it allows Doomsday to be a powerhouse lategame. Especially if you're running a Rainbow Dark Dragon deck. Seven RFG monsters instantly boost this guy to 2100, tying a Cyber Dragon at the least.

- The second effect is what makes this monster absolutely beastly. Returning RFG monsters to the graveyard can be quite the devastating blow. It targets both you and your opponent's RFG monsters, which if you play this right, will mess with any other Dark Decks strategy.

Now I know a lot of people think the last monster you'd want to run with this is Dark Armed Dragon. Wrong. That's THE best monster you can run with this card.

Normal Summon Doomsday - Special Summon DAD - Remove three monsters to destroy three cards - two of your opponents and DDHorror. Horror brings back everything you've had to remove to get exactly three monsters, and you've basically got a whole new round of ammo for DAD. This allows you to clear the field, pretty much nomatter the situation. At the very least you're getting another three Dark monsters. Late game, this can be nine of ten Darks for DAD to go to work with. If your opponant doesn't have an immediate response, this can very well lead to game.

I am a big fan of this card, and I'm quite happy to have pulled one from the original box I bought. I know the other reviewers most likely aren't going to rank this guy high, but I personally think this guy creates too much advantage to be ignored.

Traditional: 4/5 Chaos benefits from this greatly.
Advanced: 3.5/5 Since many other decks can't benefit too much from this.
Advanced DAD: 5/5

    I know many people think that this card is great for a Dark deck and some of you think that it is plain garbage in a Dark-Themed deck, but in my opinion, this card is a card that I greatly overestimated just like Beginning of the End. If you don't have any Dark monsters removed from play and this is the only monster in your hand to summon, this card is nearly worthless. It's great that it gains 300 ATK/DEF for each Dark monster you have removed from play, but you won't have so many Dark monsters removed from play so soon. It's second effect it pretty good since it allows you to return all Dark monsters back to its owner's graveyards to use it for Dark Nepthys, Dark Armed Dragon, Darklord Zerato, Dark Creator, etc. Good card, but if it's in your hand at the wrong time, it is one horrible card to have and play. If you have a great strategy or deck idea revolving and involving around Doomsday Horror, PLEASE feel free to email them to pathoon@aol.com because I really want Doomsday Horror proven to be good, but so far in my eyes when I played it, it sucked and came totally at the worst timings ever.
 
Traditional: 3/5 (Removing Dark monsters is common around here)
Advanced: 3.25/5
Art: 2.25/5 (What the hell is that? A little cheesy and a little too cartoony to me.)
Pwii As promised, I will be taking on the personality of Randy Jackson (American idol) today!

Ok, so this card doomsday horror is like so not cool and hip dawg. I mean, combined with beginning of the end, this thing only has like 1500 atk dawg. And I'm like, so, golden homunculus would do the job better then this yo. But even that's not worth running, so you should probably just go with RFTDD man...

1/5 all.
