Guardian Eatos, a card we saw on the original anime in the DOMA filler arc, used in a Deck to beat Yugi...anyway, this Guardian Eatos is a little different than the one we saw on the cartoon, go figure. We have a Level 8, Wind attributed, Fairy-type monster, which is different, with 2500 attack (low) and 2000 defense (low).

For the plus though, you can Special Summon Eatos from your Hand if you have monsters in your Graveyard, so obviously the longer the Duel goes on, the worse things look for that effect, unless you specifically build a Deck for Eatos...which is possible, although I haven't put much thought into it as of yet.

Now, while most other Guardian monster require their own specific Equip Magic card, Eatos doesn't, but she does work well with them. You can send one Equip Magic Card equipped to Eatos to the Graveyard to remove up to three monsters in your opponent's Graveyard from play. That, in itself, is unique. Anything that removes cards from your opponent's Graveyard is at least worth a look.

Anyway, any card removed by that effect adds 500 attack to Eatos (for a potential of 4000 points!) until the End Phase. Eatos isn't quite as good as she looks, but she isn't quite as horrendous as she looks either. Go for something quicker, and a little more powerful, I don't see Eatos as being very playable outside the casual level.

Traditional: 1.25/5
Advanced: 2.25/5
Art: 4.5/5

This is a card that we have been waiting a long time for. It is from the original series and it's about time they got it to us. Anyways, the stats are pretty good. A level 8 monster with 2500 ATK and 2000 DEF is actually a littl ebelow average, bu thte Fairy type helps a little bit, making it work with some of the othee Fairy cards like Valhalla.
 
The effect allows it to Special Summon itself if you have no monster sin your graveyard, making it an ideal first turn play, or in concert with a Macrocosmos so that you can swarm the field. The second effect is meh. You send an equip spell to the graveyard and remove from play up to 3 monsters in your opponent's graveyard from play and it gains 500 ATK per removed card until the End Phase.
 
All in all, it is a solid card. Someone tried to bill it to me as an 80 dollar card, but that is not the case. The forst effect is what you would play it for, and for Trade-In fodder. The second effect might be useful, and equip Spells are good again with Hidden Armory, so you might actually put something halfway decent together from this card.
 
Of course a Macro deck is the one to use with this card, keeping your graveyard clear and the Special Summons coming. Combine this with Gren Maju Da Eiza and D.D. Survivor and your opponent has a big mess on their hands. I always like cards that breathe life into a deck that utterly destroys the hated Lightsworn decks. This is no exception, allowing you to swarm with the deck as never before and making it a little easier to win.

Guardian Eatos …

This card … my FAVORITE card of the new set … is a little tricky … At the 1st 2 or 3 glances it looks pretty good … But IS it?

2500 ATK … ok. Not great for an 8 star, but it can at least run over Monarchs, so it fights harder than the standard 1 tribute. And since it IS 8 stars, u can trade it in if its not doing anything in your hand. That’s good. Wind? … Meh. Doesn’t hurt it really. Dark or Light would be nicer, but Wind allows it to play with Dark Simorgh. So, ok. It gets a pass on that. 2000 DEF – solid enough. It’s a Fairy which gives it solid support with Valhalla and such, and allows her to be fuel for Krsitya, which gives Eatos EXTRA hot points.

Effect? – well that where its starts to get a little gummy … For 1 – u can special summon it if u have no monsters in your graveyard. That’s awesome. Grave management has been all the rage the last couple years or so in Yu-gi-oh … so if u haven’t learned to do so, then u’ve been sleeping in class. Regardless – Early to mid-game is when Eatos can really help u, depending on how u’ve set things up. Next, you can send an equip card to her to the graveyard to remove up to 3 monster cards in your opponent’s grave from play. This is excellent, and again – if u don’t know why – u’ve been sleeping in class. What’s more? – She gets a boost by 500 for each monster u have removed. So what was once 2500 can now be a 4000 ATK. And there’s no “once per turn” (yet … wait for the errata, once they see how nasty she can be) attached to her, so u can do it multiple times to clear their grave, and keep boosting her, and hopefully finish the game in 1 hit.

The only downside to her is the reliance upon equip spells to make her effect work. If you have none in your hand or your opponent has no monsters in your graveyard to remove, then her effect won’t work. Then u only have a 2500 ATK batter on the field. If u draw her too late in the game - u may have monsters in your graveyard which won’t allow u access to her special summon. But too early in the game – your opponent may not have enough monsters in theirs to boost the hell out of her …

But her good WAY outweighs the bad, cuz if you’ve prepped your deck right, she can totally save your bacon …. Mmmmm…. Bacon …

Plus – she's the hottest Secret Rare picture in long time.
