Tytannial, Princess of Camellias, aside from having one of the oddest names in Yugioh history, is one hell of a Plant monster. Tytannial is a Level 8 monster, requiring two tributes, but definitely worthwhile if you can get her on the Field.

Tytannial also has 2800 attack, meaning she can contend with most of the powerhouses of the Format, as well as an equally solid and impressive 2600 defense, and is obviously a Plant of the Wind attribute.

When a Magic, Trap, or Effect monster's effect is activated that targets a card or cards on the Field, by tributing one face-up Plant-type monster you control to negate the activation and effect of said card, and destroy it.

This is the heavy hitter and protection that Plants needed, to actually become a viable Decktype. Are they going to be yet? Sadly, I don't believe so, as they just aren't quick enough despite their plethora of new support. However, if you're playing Plants, you play this.

    Todayʼs card up for review is Tytannical, Princess of Camellias. I am in love with this card. Plant decks got a huge boost from the latest set. This card is brutal. Plants can summon stuff from the deck now, so why not grab this guy. If people are using stuff like Thought Ruler Archfiend, why not use this in Plants?
Anteaus Tytannial, Princess of Camellias

Alright, it's good to be here, I have to be honest. So, my very first card is: Tytannial, Princess of Camellias! I actually like this card. It's got a decent ATK and DEF for an 8-star monster, and its effect is simply amazing, in my opinion. For the price of only one tributed Plant-type monster, you can negate a spell, trap or effect monster that targets a card on the field and you can destroy it. Her effect is absolutely devastating in a Plant deck, and with all the Plant support that's coming out she'll definitely be a great addition. Mind you, she's 8 stars, so it can be difficult to get her onto the field; once she hits play, however, she's going to be a great card to have in just about any situation.

No matter what your opponent throws at you, you'll be able to negate it, and with some of the new support for Plants that's out, replenishing monsters shouldn't be a big deal. You need to use her effect in moderation, however; even with that new support, monsters are there just for tribute fodder. You need to be able to balance her effect with any other monsters that you have on the field. Obviously, she's pointless outside of a Plant deck, and is completely unsplashable in any deck but Plant, but rest assured that she'll give your Plant deck a huge boost.

In Traditional, Plants won't make a huge splash simply because of the mass amounts of...well, for lack of a better term, "better cards" in their card pool.

Tytannial is the big monster for plant users. It has 2800 ATK which is the normal attack for the main monster of the deck and the defense is also good, but chances are you won't be defensing with a monster that is so easy to summon. Lonefire Blossom can just bring this out to the field in a flash and it doesn't have one of those "can only be special summoned by" conditions. Plants also have their own Call of the Haunted, so you can bring this back for another attack.

The effect is also awesome as well. Another your opponent is targeting on your side of the field, tribute a plant to negate and destroy it. Its like a Prime Material Dragon for plants, but better because its anything being targeted, instead of having effects that destroy monsters on the field. Plants got a huge boost with the new set and I believe that there will be some at the top tables and this card could possibly be in those decks.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 4/5

Otaku

Ah, we come to a real example of how the game changed during my hibernation.

 

Stats: Tytannial, Princess of Camellias is a Level 8 Wind/Plant.  As a Level 8 Monster it can be used with Trade-In.  It will take some effort to get into play, but Plants actually have support now.

 

Wait, there’s a card called Lonefire Blossom and it can do what?

 

So, umm… yeah, Lonefire Blossom lets you Special Summon it from your deck.  That combined with all the token generating cards Plants now have means this should be easy enough to get into play.  Oh well, at least being Wind doesn’t help it much.  Except a lack of progress is a bad thing, even if it keeps making me right.

 

Tytannial, Princess of Camellias has a wonderful 2800 ATK and 2600 DEF.  Few Monsters will match either stat and those that do either have a significant cost (like Injection Fairy Lily) or are just as hard or probably harder to get into play.

 

Effect(s): Now, surely “she” won’t have a good effect… gah, she can negate targeted effects, even if they target multiple cards!  It costs a tribute of a face-up Plant Type Monster, but as we’ve found out, that isn’t hard anymore to do!

 

Okay, so it isn’t “perfect”: non-targeting effects are plentiful, and can still hit it (or anything near it).  Still, it is pretty amazing considering there are plenty of cards that do target.

 

Uses and

Combinations: An enormous field presence for plant decks, Tytannial should be able to bludgeon opposing Monsters while protecting your own cards with your plentiful Plant fodder.

 

Ratings

 

Traditional: 2/5 – I am told that Plants have a OTK strategy, via Gigaplant.  I know the basics of it, but not the finer points.  Also, I can see how her negation effects could come in handy, so yeah, this card actually scores a point!

 

Advanced: 4/5 – She isn’t some unstoppable behemoth, but she’ll certainly be a fine addition to Plant decks.

 

Art: 4/5 – Very nice.  It isn’t the best looking card, but the whole “woman from a plant” motif works quite well in this instance, even seems regal as it was meant to.

 

Summary

If you are running a Plant deck, I strongly recommend you include this unless your only goal is a OTK via Gigaplant.  This way if the OTK falls through, you have a real deck ready to go with both a strong attacker and the ability to control the opponent’s actions with the threat of negation.
