Monday

Well, it's a new week, and I picked some interesting oddities for the week, so let's start with Immortal Ruler, a Level 4 Zombie-type monster of the Earth attribute with a respectable 1800 attack and a miserable 200 defense.

Now, the big downside to Immortal Ruler is that he cannot be Special Summoned, which seems to make him very mortal, and Zombies seem to have a pretty easy time of Special Summoning themselves, but not this guy.

For a second effect, you can choose to tribute Immortal Ruler to add one Zombie World from your Graveyard to your Hand. Not bad, especially if you're playing Zombie World, which you may or may not be if you're using Zombies. Too bad it can't fetch it from the Deck.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1.75/5 Not even Dark attributed :(
Advanced: 2.75/5 Meh
Art: 4/5

Immortal Ruler ...

This is one of those ... funny cards, that seems to be "specific" enough about what it can or cannot do, that it makes u think that u might be missing something with it, and it could potentially be awesome ...

Well, Uncle Freeza is here to tell u that u can settle down, relax, and quit wracking your brain on this guy. Immortal Ruler sucks. 1800 ATK earth zombie ... even a non-effect monster would be BETTER, as it could at least be special summoned and help with a swarm at some point. His effect? - tribute him to add a Field spell that nobody even plays from your graveyard to your hand ... Not even from your DECK to your hand, which u could get some use out of. WTF??! There are countless other ways to get cards back from your grave to your hand, and ways that dont require u blowing your only normal summon this turn to do so.

He IS kinda cool looking, but he gets no points for that.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5

Well to explain my absense, my computer crashed and couldn't get back on till the 8th or so, I have my new computer now though and am ready to continue with the COTDs.

We start this week off with Immortal Ruler, a solid 1800 attack beater that is searchable via Goblin Zombie and you can tribute it to add a Zombie World from your Graveyard to your hand. This becomes useful when your opponent ends up destroying it when you need it. The major flaw to this card is that it cant be Special Summoned, if it could be Special Summoned the card would probably be better since then you'd be able to grab it with Pyramid Turtle. If you are going to use this card in your Zombie deck, I would only use one. Zombie Masters are already good enough 1800 beaters so you dont need Immortal Ruler in multiples.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5

Emporer Sem is an interesting card but I don't think It will every cut it in our meta or any other meta in the future. Back then when tribute summoning was abundant I still don't think this card would see play but who knows maybe I'm not looking for the right way to abuse this card. Needless to say this card sin't going to make it.

Parallel Fates Immortal Ruler…. Zombies finally get their own field searcher. But compared to Captain Gold and Gravekeeper’s Commandant, they really got the short end of the stick. The main differences include Ruler’s ability is to get a field spell back from the grave, not the deck. And that it cannot be special summoned. The fetching back from grave part is fine, as it only gives the deck more options, however it is its inability to be special summoned that really hurts this card.

A heavy part of zombie-deck strategy relies of special summoning, and sometimes you need that one target in the grave to activate Zombie Master’s effect, or you need a monster when you have Book of Life. Immortal Ruler does not help in situations as such. On its own, its 1800 attack is solid, but given the monster used in zombies, I would much rather max out on 3 Zombie Masters if not doing so already.

If you’re going to use Zombie World, just use 3 Terraforming. There is no point in wasting a summon just so you can get a field spell.

1/5

This card cannot be Special Summoned. You can tribute this card to add one "Zombie World" from your Graveyard to your Hand.

    Today’s card up for review is Immortal Ruler. Right off the bat, I like to see that another Zombie support card was made. It can fetch you your power card, but there are drawbacks. Instead of having a simple effect like pitching Immortal from your hand, you have to waste your summon in most cases. He is still a decent card, but the main thing that you have to keep in mind is that Zombie’s cannot compete in the format that we are in, plus the banlist really beat the deck type up. This card will fall under the potential category, but only when the game has less cheapness, and Zombies get some of their power back
