Closing our week, we come to Flame Spirit Ignis, who is a Fire monster, which is appropriate, and is a Level 4 monster with the paltry attack of 1400 and an equally craptacular defense of 1200.  That aside, this card, as the theme of the week continuing, however inadvertently, is terrible.

 

Ignis allows you to tribute one face-up Fire monster you control to inflict 100x damage to your opponent for each Fire monster in your Graveyard.  This is horrid, and that may be an understatement.  Let's say your Fire Deck has 20 monsters, and you have 18 of them in the Graveyard and this guy and some other thing on your Field...that's STILL only 1800.

 

It just isn't enough damage to warrant playing :(

And if you thought Maniacal Servant was bad... At least the 1500 ATK and 1200 DEF are a standard for a level 4 monster. FIRE and Pyro lend it to help with Volcanic cards, but they are slightly debunked lately. The effect is not great at all. You tribute a face up FIRE monster to inflict 100 for each FIRE monster in your graveyard.
 
This coulda been neat if it was even 300 damage. Volcanic Shell, Scattershot and even Hammerer and Slicer would have made great targets, as the Shells and Scattershots replace themselves and you can tribute the Hammerer and Slicer after they have dealt damage. At 100 it is not nearly enough to justify the setup and cards that it takes to get it going. Yet another good idea that was bungled because UDE was scared of making another Grandmaster, Allure of Darkness or Darklord Zerato. And it wouldn't have even been THAT great!

The Card

It's only 1400 attack and the effect isn't very good. Fire decks get more support, but not very good support. Fire Trooper is a much better card than this even if you lose the card. This card will end up being destroyed in battle, and at the start of this game, this will always be a dead card. Even with not that much support for Fire, this card should not be in the deck. I rather run Solar Flare Dragon and combo it up with stall cards such as Messenger Of Peace, Gravity Bind, and Level Limit- Area A because it's very unlikely you will abuse this card before you get lose. This card takes a long time to set up before you can take advantage of it's effect.

Advanced

It's just not good, and if you want to burn your opponent, there are much better ways than playing this card or even a fire deck at all. Decks this format are much faster than this could be if you made it around stall and cards like Gyzarus would destroy this deck, because this card will never stay on the field, because Gladiator Beasts can go off turn one and get out Gyzarus.

Traditional

Not good at all.

Combo's

Volcanic Shells+Phoenix Wing Blast/Raigeki Break/Divine Wrath to get fire monsters in the GY. Stall Cards+having this card on the field. Then using Solems and Divine wrath to help it from being destroyed from monsters. Then maybe Using 3 Bribe's to protect the Stall cards. Then to add some help to your deck, you add 3 Royal Oppressions which is really good this format, and helps your deck against all the top decks. Then you add all the fire monsters you want in your deck such as Fire trooper, which helps burn some LP off and puts fire Monsters in the GY. Then you can also use Solar Recharge which is good early game with stall and protection which burns him off until you get fire monsters in your GY until you can use Flame Spirit Ignis and burn him while keeping it on the field.


Suggestions

Don't play this card in a burn deck. If you want to run this card, only do it when you run a lot of fire monsters. I would also try to use Volcanic shells and use Phoenix Wing Blast or Raigeki Break to put fire monsters in the GY easier. I would also maybe run Thestalos The Fire Monarch since it has a great effect, big attack, and is a fire monster, but you only run thestalos if you want to run an aggro type deck. Then this card would be pointless once again. So you wouldn't run Thestalos, because you will use cards like Messenger of peace to protect him and get as many fire monsters in your graveyard as possible. Then start burning your opponent each turn, but the problem is that this takes a while to set up and Gladiator Beasts, Light Sworn, and Dark Armed Dragon decks get their set ups faster to win, while to take advantage of this card you have to set up early and get all the cards you need. Which is harder with this deck, which makes this card not good, because of how fast decks work this format.


Art

It isn't that bad, but nothing too great. 2/5

    Today’s card up for review is Flame Spirit Ignis. This card is pretty meh to be honest. I can’t recall when Fire monsters have really been playabale, besides being used with Volcanics. I cant see the burn damage being really big, so that hurts its playability. If your gonna go for burn within fire decks, use Spiritual Fire Art- Kurenai or go with Volcanic Scattershot.

    Another better card would be Solar Flare Dragon, u inflict 500 per turn, plus if you have two on the field, your opponent wont be attacking anytime soon. So just stick with cards that you know will have a big impact upon being played, and not by chance or numbers.

Advanced: 1.5/5

BOOO!  Just Boo.  Nothing remotely good to write about the card.  You would need at least 15-20 FIRE monster in your graveyard do decent damage.  Spiritual Fire Art works is much better for a Fire based deck.

So... he has a crappy attack...

A bad effect because you're rarely going to have over 10 even with shells and scattershots.....
And he has to tribute a monster on your field.....

I'm sorry... I'd just like to review some GOOD cards....
