Tuesday

We took Monday off, more or less in observance of Easter, but we're back today looking at Assault Beast, an interesting enough monster.

Assault Beast has a ridiculously simple effect...by discarding him to the Graveyard, you can add an "Assault Mode-Activate" card from your Deck to your Hand. That, in itself, is good, but not necessarily enough to warrant playing the card.

But wait...they made Assault Beast actually a respectable card. Level
4 and an Earth-type Beast-Warrior, no less with an impressive 1900 attack and 1200 defense. He's a decent enough beatstick, and even could fit in with Gladiator Beasts.

If you're actually playing some Assault Mode Synchros, then go ahead and try him if you have some room, and as I said about Gladiator Beasts, I'd definitely try out at least one, even though not exactly a "Gladiator Beast".

Ratings:

Traditional: 2.5/5
Advanced: 3.5/5
Art: 4/5

Assault Beast ...

Ok, this guy's name should be - "Please Yu-Gi-Oh Players - Play with our New Assault Mode Monsters - PLEASE?!?!" ... but probably since that was too long to fit on one card, they shortened it to "Assault Beast" ...

Yeah ... 1900 ATK on a 4-star body ... we ALREADY know that's good, but seriously - who cares at this point? Seems more like a lame half hearted attempt to validate this deck type ... Are we supposed to say - "Oh cool! He's 1900 ATK AND he helps Assault Modes??! Wow! I'm gonna play him!!" ? Well 1900 ATK IS good, but considering that u have to discard him just to get his effect .... with his effect being that u can fetch a trap from your deck ... which u then have to set and wait till next turn to activate ... ... all of which while assuming u ALREADY have the correct Synchro on the field .... uhg ... It's enough to give u a headache just BUILDING the deck ... and at what point has ANY of the "impressive" stats of his been any benefit? ... Sure - u could always just SUMMON him to put his strength to use, but then what makes him better than any OTHER 1900 muscle for any given deck type?

I dont think the Assault Mode Deck itself is necessarily THAT bad ... but the Assault Beast just seems like a poor investment in time and resources for it ... and the Assault Mode Deck is so labored enough already that it doesn't have a moment to waste with this thing.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1.5/5

Well hope everyone had a great Easter weekend, and so we'll start this weeks Card of the Day off with Assault Beast. Another "Monster Searcher", and by "Monster Searcher" I mean a card that discards itself to add a specific card from the deck to the hand. In Assault Beasts case, you discard it to add an "Assault Mode Activate" from your deck to your hand. This alone makes it an absolute must in any /Assault Mode deck, as it speeds up the chances of you summoning an /Assault Mode monster.

Being a Beast-Warrior, it will be really amazing if we ever manage to get a decent Beast or Beast-Warrior type /Assault Mode monster. I'd build it and base it around Enraged Battle Ox and other various cards. Being a solid 1900 attack monster it lacks in defense but then again it can get over a 1800 Gladiator Beast Laquari or Elemental Hero Stratos, many high attacker level fours.

There really isn't much to say about this card other than its a decent beat stick for a Beastdown deck and is a must for any /Assault Mode deck.
