Solidarity, a Continuous piece of crap...I mean Magic card. I don't see why you would play this card...ever. It's far too situational, and while a Deck could be built around it...sort of, maybe, kinda, possibly...I wouldn't waste my time on it.

Ratings:

1/5 both formats
Art: 1/5

    Today’s card up for review is Solidarity. This card has a very solid effect, and has potential in theme decks, but theres one big problem. Theme decks cannot work(Besides Lightsworn and Blackwing), and especially ones that have Continuous Spells in them. A few years back, I would have been in love with this card, but sadly the game is too advanced for something like this to work and be competitive. On the casual level though, you could make a nifty themed deck with this

Trad: 1/5

Solidarity ...

Not bad. Not bad at all. It rewards those dedicated players that insist on playing a monster type theme deck to the very strictest letter. And once there, think of Solidarity as a mega 1-sided old school field spell. Remember those that read things like - "increase the ATK of all Fish, Sea Serpent, and Aqua type monsters by 200 points"? Well so long as u only have ONE monster type in the grave and on the field - boost that monster by 800 points. And ONLY your monsters. That's nearly an Axe of Despair for every one of your monsters so long as u remain in theme. Not too shabby.

Now its a continuous spell, so obviously its a sitting duck on the field for spell/trap removal. But then so is pretty much everything else these days, so we cant really hold that against this card. Its only real drawback is that there are only a small amount of successful deck types that can play well with strictly ONE monster type. The best of which is probably the Blackwings, and then also Zombies. But the good news is that these are both excellent decks to play.

Good ol' Solidarity.

Oh yes, here we have it. The long awaited Solidarity! This card can be AWESOME in the right deck. Any decktype that runs one central type of monster (Six Samurai and Harpies) would strongly benefit from it. As far as tier 1 decks go I think this could see some play in blackwings because the central type of the deck is winged beasts. The 800 atk boost would make all the blackwings huge beatsticks. 2500 attack Bora? 2600 attack shura? 2800 attack sirocco? YES SIR! This card has a ton of potential. Try it out in your Blackwing, Six Samurai, or Harpie deck.

4/5 Advanced

Solidarity, a really good card for specifically type themed decks. Major type decks you would see are Blackwings(without Grepher of course), Dinosaurs, Machines and various others. This card gives an 800 attack boost which is enough to really run over a lot of monsters you would see people opening with. Most monsters people use are around 1800 attack, and if lower and in a type based deck, they generally still have enough attack to get over most monsters level 4 or lower, of course. Solidarity works well with Moja, Dinosaurs and Blackwings more than any other deck. Zombies are another deck you could use Solidarity in as well as Spellcasters but Zombies generally need other types to make them better with some of the cards they did need banned or limited.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 4/5
