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.
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
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 …
