Phoenixian Cluster Amaryllis, is a Level 8, Fire attributed Plant monster, which I think would be bad, as Fire tends to destroy Plants, so far as I know, but I'm not involved in things like that, my degree is to teach Math...anyway, PCA (for short) has 2200 attack (horrid for Level 8) and 0 defense (even worse...)

Now, despite being Level 8, which requires two tributes, you can use Phoenixian seed to Special Summon PCA without having to tribute, which is good, even though the PCA must be in your Hand, but that's all right, as I don't see this card really worth tributing for.

Now, after Damage Calculation, PCA is destroyed, and if destroyed while you control this card, deal 800 damage to your opponent, which is almost a reasonable amount of damage. During the End Phase, you can remove one Plant-type monster from your Graveyard to Special Summon this card in defense position.

In the Plant Deck, obviously, PCA can work...sort of. We saw Akiza use her reasonably well against Yusei on Yugioh 5Ds, but you more or less need to be set up and semi-protected or it just isn't worth it.

General Zorpa Phoenixian Cluster Amaryllis

Today we have one of the wierdest cards that we have ever seen. Amaryllis is a Level 8 2200 ATK FIRE Plant. Wow. Those stats are pretty bad. The standard for a level 8 monster is pretty much 2800 ATK and this thing isn't even close. The attribute isn't so bad as Lonefire Blossom is played.

The effect text is way too complicated, but basically you can only summon it with it's seed, which is a Special Summon and it dies whenever it attacks. Luckily, any time it would die, you get to burn your opponent for 800 points. But wait there's more! If it is in the garveyard during your End Phase you can remove a Plant from play to Special Summon it in DEFENSE MODE?! Wow, a continual source of burn is nice, but why wrap it up in so much packaging?

You cannot even use this as a sort of a Treeborn Frog effect as it happens during your End Phase. Generally you do not want to remove your plants anyway as they would preferred to be revived or removed for Mark of the Rose. Basically it is way too hard to SUmmon and really doesn't do a whole lot once it hits the field. Such cards go in my "cards that look coool but just phail" pile.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-1/5

    This card cannot be Special Summoned except with its own effect or with "Phoenixian Seed". If this card attacks, it is destroyed after damage calculation. If this card you control is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, inflict 800 damage to your opponent. During your End Phase, you can remove 1 Plant-Type monster from play to Special Summon this card from your Graveyard in Defense Position.

    Today’s card up for review is Phoenixian Cluster Amaryllis. I first read this card, and was like, sweet! Then I read Phoenixian Seed =/. I dislike cards that say you can tribute this card to summon the monster from your hand. That will tell you right off the bat, it will be very inconsistent, or not being able to work at all. Now, if you chose to use this card and Seed and can pull it off, then you will have something cooking. This guy will keep coming back! It doesn’t say in the text that during your end phase during the turn he is destroyed… That is very sweet! Who knows, this may work someday, and Plants may finally be a viable deck type!

Phoenixian Cluster Amaryllis ...

Actually ... this card ain't so bad .... Forget the stats. For a level 8 monster, everything about it is either terrible or worse. But looking at it's burn effect? - it's kinda cool. So long as it doesnt get removed from the field or bounced back to the deck, and u have plant monsters in your grave to keep removing, it will keep coming back and burning for 800 each time. Now we could talk about little fixes to make this plant even deadlier, but looking at it as it is - i don't hate it. It can only find a home in a plant burn deck ... but I could see that being a rather fun deck to make use of.

Today we review a cool card, Phoenixian Cluster Amaryllis. Another level 8 plant monster. I smell a plant deck with Trade-Ins involved. Anyways, it cant be special summoned except with its own effect or Phoenixian Seed and if it attacks, its destroyed after damage calculation. If its destroyed and sent to the graveyard, your opponent receives 800 damage and during the end phase you can remove a plant from play to special summon this card in defense position. By playing Trade-In and sending it to the graveyard, you can bring it back during the end of the turn, which is pretty awesome. It also has a solid 2200 attack, even though its rather low for a level 8, its not completely terrible. And the abuse you can dish out on your opponent with Card of Safe Return and possibly other tech cards like D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation to bring removed plants from play back. You can also use cards like Burial from a Different Dimension to restock your graveyard with plants. Its a workable defense really. Outside of plants its obviously not that great a card and im sure most plant players would prefer to use other cards in their deck.

This card cannot be Special Summoned except with its own effect or with “Phoenixian Seed”.

During your End Phase, you can remove 1 Plant-type monster from play to special summon this card from your Graveyard in Defense Position

For some reason this card reminds me of Sacred Phoenix of Nefteys. I personally don't like this card because of the stipulations and requirements all for a little burn damage. Its effect, stats, or requirements don't balance out the card so unless you have to super broken consistent combo with it I don't see it as anywhere playable.
