Rai-Mei, another Super Rare that is fairly different from yesterdays card, being Light and Thunder, and Level 3 with 1400 attack and 1200 defense.

This is short and sweet folks. When destroyed by Battle, you can add one Level 2 or lower Light monster from your Deck to your Hand. If only Magician of Faith weren't Banned, hmm? Anyway, take a Psychic monster or a Tuner, pull of a Synchro Summon, and that's all she wrote folks.

Rai-Mei at least has some potential, but the trick is, it has to be destroyed by Battle, and depending on what's on the Field, it could just be destroyed. Play with caution. If you don't have it destroyed that way, this is just another useless card.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5
Art: 4.5/5
General Zorpa Rai Mei

Now Rai Mei is SOOOOO much better than her brother. A solid 1400 ATK and 1200 DEF are pretty good on a level 3 monster of the LIGHT Thunder type. You won't be killing all that much with this card, but her stats allow her to combo with some of the Battery stuff as well as Honest.

When she dies in battle, you get a level 2 or lower LIGHT monster from your deck to your hand. There aren't that many monsters to choose from, as the Batterymen are really the only choice that you have, and then you can only get Batteryman D and Micro Cell. The lack of monsters to get with her effect is more of a fault with the game state thatn the fault of Rai Mei though.

If there were ever a lot of really good level 2 or lower LIGHT monsters then she could really pull them all together. But as it is, she is a little akward right now. However, her card art is my favorite in the entire game, so I am never disappointed when I pull one.

Just like Rai-Jin, Rai-Mei isn't a great choice for Light decks. When this monster is destroyed by battle and sent to the grave, add a Level 2 or lower Light monster to you hand. Why add it to your hand when you can special summon it to the field with Shining Angel? The one thing Rai-Mei can get where Shining Angel can't get is The Calculator, but overall Shining Angel is the better choice.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
Anteaus Rai-Mei

Rai-Mei is a simple recruiter monster, but her options on what to pull are quite limited. a Level-2 or lower Light monster from your Deck to your hand doesn't sound like much, but this card can really pump up a Light-weenie build, especially with Rai-Jin, the card we reviewed yesterday. But I really don't see this card doing a whole lot for the Light build at the moment, especially with a lack of good Tuner support (Mind Master is the only one that really comes to mind). With more support from later sets, we could see this card become a powerhouse, but right now it's somewhat limited.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2.5/5

Rai-Mei … (Rai-Jin’s sister?)
Well, this card is a LITTLE better than yesterday. 1400 ATK isn’t a heck’uv’alot but its not the worst either, especially when sitting on a 3 Star Monster. Light type is good. Thunder isn’t. Although I suppose if u are putting together a Battery Deck or something, u can make an argument for these Rai-siblings … but I still wouldn’t mess with Rai-jin... Ok. Enough about him.

Rai-Mei’s effect? – not the worst. Any card that replaces itself, as far as resources, when it is destroyed, isn’t too too bad. Its small enough that there’s a good chance that it WILL get killed in battle, so you’re gonna make use of the effect … the only question is then – how many viable targets will u then HAVE when Rai-Mei’s effect kicks in? Bateryman D? Micro Cell? – neither of these things will be doing much for u. Calculator would be among your best choices, but even THAT? … meh …

If she could grab a few more targets, like Level 4 or lower, she’d be significantly better and might be ok in other Light themed decks … but she can’t, so she’s not.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
