This is probably the best Plant card in the game.
1600 ATK and 2000 DEF are hardly enough to break the
game on a level 4 monster, although they are very
good stats. Plant and Earth do some for the card,
but not as much as one might think. Like 90% of YGO,
the best part is the effect.
For every Plant monster you control, he gains 300
ATK and DEF. As he is already a Plant monster, he is
at 1900 ATK. Get some Black Rose Tokens on the field
and he can be up to 3100. The best part is that the
ATK he gains is not halved by Black Garden, so he
can still manage to take down some of the big boys
with his ATK.
The second effect is nice, but not necessarily
necessary. He cannot switch controllers. This is
useful against Mind Control, Brain Control and Mark
of the Rose. As I said it is not necessary, but a
nice insurance policy against a frisky opponent.
There is not much else to say. He is a big beatstick
and will pretty much be a 3 of in most Plant decks
now and in the future.
Botanical Lion ...
he's a good card, ladies and gentlemen!
Seriously - this one's an easy one. He's 4 stars,
meaning he can be normal summoned with no issues or
tributes. Always a good thing. Earth attribute -
also good ... possibly a close 3rd best attribute
behind Light & Dark right now. Plant type - a very
good type to be these days with all the support
Plants have gotten as of late. 2000 DEF - awesome.
1600 ATK ... meh ... it's not too bad, but when u
get to his effect - its a non-issue. U see -
Botanical Lion gets a boost of 300 ATK for every
Plant type monster u control. He HIMSELF is a Plant
type, so he already really comes out the gate
swinging with 1900.
All he is is muscle for the Plant deck, as he doesnt
have any other fancy tricks to him. Just keeps
getting stronger, the more plants u have under your
control. And with the swarming ability of Plants
now, it should be fairly easy to cut this guy loose
and let him go nuts on your opponent.
My review for today is late, and I apologize...but I
have mid-terms for college this week (my last ones
as I graduate in the Spring!) and it's eating up a
lot of my time...
Botanical Lion is quite a nice Plant monster, who is
Level 4 and an Earth monster with a respectable 1600
attack and a solid 2000 defense.
Now first, our Lion gains 300 attack and defense for
every Plant monster you control.
So, he powers himself up, giving you a Level 4
monster with 1900 attack, which is impressive and
2300 defense, which is even better than the previous
2000. Black Garden can help you power this monster
up, and it's a very reliable beatstick for Plant
Furthermore, control of this card cannot switch. I
mean, it's a nice little bit of added protection, so
it's one less thing for you to worry about I
suppose. Enjoy him.
