Monday

Well, we start off the new week continuing to look at Phantom's Darkness cards, and we begin with Field Commander Rahz, whose name opens a few questions. First, how does someone who is a "Field Commander" only have 1600 attack points?

That having been said, Rahz isn't a bad card, not at all. Level 4, of the Earth and Warrior descent with 1600 attack which is a little low, and 1200 defense, which is equally low. However, he holds the effect of being able to add a Level 4 or lower Warrior monster from your Deck to the top of your Deck when Normal or Special Summoned.

However, let's look at that a bit more. If a monster isn't giving you any advantage, it probably isn't going to be anything that you should probably be playing. My point being, this guy doesn't even add the Monster card to your Hand or the Field...just to the top of your Deck.

In closing, how come Warriors need and receive support? Do they need anything else?

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.5/5 He could add a BLS to the top of your Deck, but I'd probably use Different Dimension Capsule over this.

Advanced: 2.5/5 Not worthless, can search Goblin Attack Force, nice
pieces of the DD Family, just to name a few.

Art: 3.5/5
Ex` Monday March 10th: Field Commander Rahz

Today we're talking about Field Commander Rahz, an Earth/Warrior Monster with a built in, yet watered down version of Reinforcement of the Army. Rahz allows you to select 1 LV4 or less Warrior from your deck and instead of adding it to your hand, its placed on top of your deck

There are 3 ways this card could've been good.

1) If the LV4 or less monster was added to your hand (obvious pick)
2) If any monster aside from Warriors were placed on top of your deck (a better Deep Diver)
3) If you could select LV5 or more as well (stack a nice beater that Dasher can bring out)

Sadly, without those changes, Rahz is nothing more than a watered down version of Reinforcement of the Army

Ratings:

Trad: 1/5 (Doesn't belong anywhere)
Advanced: 1.5/5 (Alot of better options available)

Until Next Time

Field Commander Rahz

Okay...so essentially it's Reinforcement of the Army with legs, kinda.

This is an interesting card.  Not broken, not powerful enough to see play in any deck that can support it, but interesting.  If you got the card straight into your hand, it'd be heralded as the next E-Hero Stratos, or even better than.  +1s with powerful bodies are respected in this game -- look at the Gadgets; the majority of the decks that WEREN'T Dark Armed Dragon that saw play were Gadget builds.

For decks that definitely need help drawing into Warriors, where RotA just isn't enough, you've got this guy.  Otherwise, I'd stick with the Spell version.

2.5/5
