Fires of Doomsday...what is this...cool card name
week or something?
Anyway, here is a card that allows you to summon 2
Tokens in defense position (which have 0 attack and
0 defense) and prevents you from summoning any other
Monsters in the turn. Furthermore, you can NOT
tribute the tokens for a tribute summon.
Can not tribute the tokens for a tribute summon
UNLESS it's for a DARK monster. What Dark monsters
do we know that require a couple of tributes? Dark
Magician, or even, Dark Magician of Chaos? Granted,
Dark Magician Decks could use this, and for all of
us using DMoC now, we have easier ways of reviving
and abusing him than tributing him, but still a
decent enough Magic card.
Traditional: 1.5/5 No real need.
Advanced: 3/5 For reasons stated above.
Fires of Doomsday
This card's actually pretty good.
It may only generate 2 tokens, but in pretty much
all Dark decks, these tokens can actually be
tributed for Tribute Summons, unlike Scapegoat
tokens! You have an easier way to make D-Hero
Plasma or Dogma hit the field to claim their
incredible effects...you have easier fodder for more
mainstay choices like Jinzo, or more unusual Dark
monsters like Dark Ruler Ha Des.
If you look at almost every big Dark monster that
sees play other than Dark Armed Dragon, they'll all
benefit from this if you're not dumping/reviving
them. This is a good tech choice for some Dark
decks and one you'd play 2 or 3 in others.
Friday - Fires of Doomsday
So this time we're reviewing a Quick-Play spell card
that has an interesting effect. It allows the player
to special summon two tokens during whichever phase
they want of whoevers turn it is, but they can't be
used for a tribute summon unless the monster is
DARK. Let's take a look first at which monsters we
would want to tribute summon in the current format.
Uh..none, really, since Special Summoning is the key
in this format, but DMoC can certainly be tribute
summoned by tributing the two tokens. This card can
also be used for Caius when he's released, but I
doubt anybody would run a card that only allows for
three key cards in their deck to be special
summoned. However, this card can be considered the
little brother of Scapegoat, since it special
summons tokens onto the field that are useless
whatsoever and can't be tributed for a tribute
summon. This card is a little better, though, since
DARK monsters can be Tribute Summoned. I don't
really think this card will make too much of a
difference in the Meta or the decklists of top
players, and it definitely hasn't yet.
Friday March 14th: Fires of Doomsday
Today we're talking about Fires of Doomsday and I'm
sure most players have a copy of this card. I
literally begged for copies of this card during the
sneek. We're looking at a card that Fuses
Scapegoat's Chainability with Stray Lambs live
tributes. This card is sheer amazing, despite the
fact you can only tribute those for a "tribute
summon" for Dark monsters. Otherwise, it would be
To get some clarification on the way, The Doomsday
Tokens can be tributed for costs of effects (Cannon
Soldier, Monster Gate, Crush Card Virus) as well as
Tribute summoning for Dark Monsters (Jinzo, Blowback
Dragon, Dark Magician of Chaos) so these tokens are
versatile for almost anything
When Crush Card Virus is mass released in the Gold
Series and The Dark Monarch makes an apparence in
the TCG, expect this card to be run in triplets
Trad: 4/5 (Makes up for Scapegoat's restriction)
Advanced: 4/5 (Still ridiculous)
Until Next Time
