FalchionB (or whatever that is suppose to be) is a
rocketship...I mean a Level 4, Light attributed,
Machine monster with 1200 attack, and 800 defense,
not so great stats on a monster sporting Level 4...
Now, we have a couple of effects here, but we have a
big drawback from the beginning, in that you can
only activate either effect if Falchion (as I'm
calling him) destroys a monster by Battle. With only
1200 attack, that probably isn't happening often.
You can either send a Light attribute Machine
monster with 1200 or less attack from the Deck to
the Graveyard, or Special Summon one Machine monster
of the aforementioned Light attribute from your
Graveyard...so it's a combo card...kinda, with
itself? The only monster that even comes to mind
here is itself, or Gradius. I didn't check, I had no
I almost feel bad for being so rough on yesterday's

Today’s card up for
review is Falchion Beta. At this time, you wouldn’t
find many monsters that you can dump/revive with his
effect, but you can pitch/get the following: Cyber
Valley/Tuningware, or even Roulette Barrel? Those
are sadly your only options to use with this card,
Besides the lack of support, let’s look at the one
big Brightside. You can use Honest and Limiter
Removal on it. If more Light Machines get released,
then I would like this card more
Well this card i would call "talent without the
execution" ... It's light ... its a Machine ... both
fine things to be. And it has the benefit of 2
effects to choose from, both of which are very good.
However, the only real drawback is its weak attack.
1200? That aint gonna destroy all that much in
battle these days ... Sure, it can benefit from
various support mechanisms ... Shrink, Honest, ...
yadda, yadda, whatever ... but Falchion just doesnt
carry enough weight on its own to be worth investing
in ... and it would NEED its own deck around it to
see what it can do. If it was just 300 ATK points
higher, we could really have something here ... but
alas ... We're left with a nice idea that will never
have a payoff.
N o V a
Tuesday folks, and
we're looking at yet another odd ball card that
supports Victory Viper XX03. I hate to be one to
complain or even look like it but really? Gradius
support cards didnt work and so far the Victory
Viper support hasn't done much, even though its
what, two cards currently? Now there are some plus
sides to these cards, they are all light attributed
and light based. Honest is a big thing here. A lot
of players would probably also tech in Cyber Valley
and Cyber Phoenix, with monster protection like
Shrink. Falchionβ is rather unique however. Honestly
I see it as a faster but not too fast way of pulling
Victory Viper from the deck and summoning it out.
Being 1200 attack however, if you can manage to dump
two Falchionβ to the graveyard, with say something
like Foolish Burial, you could attack with the first
Falchionβ, summon another Falchionβ back and do the
same with the last Falchionβ. In a way it'd be like
Hydrogeddon from the graveyard with lower attack.
This also brings up another popular light monster
that is never used, Blue Thunder T-45. Seeing as how
Victory Viper and all of its support need to destroy
cards in battle, Blue Thunder T-45 and Helping Robo
for Combat are rather decent ideas for a deck based
on Victory Viper. While they may not be targets for
Viper's support cards, they cant contribute to the
deck. Who doesn't like free tokens? Who doesn't like
a draw 1 card version of Crystal Seer in light
attribute machine form with better stats? Falchionβ
has some "unique" ways to use it so whos to say
support for Victory Viper wont make the deck
