Friday

XX-Saber Gottoms closes out the week, a heavy hitting big Synchro monster for X Saber players, being Level 9 and of the Erath attribute with 3100 attack, which is in credible and 2600 defense. XX-Saber Gottoms is Synchro Summoned with a Tuner and one or more Earth monsters.

Specifically requiring an Earth monster can hurt, but it shouldn't hurt your typical X Saber player. For the effect, you can tribute one X-Saber monster to discard one random card from your opponent's Hand.
Really, you're playing this guy for attack power.

3100 is incredible, and takes out pretty much everything ,but the tributing a monster just for a discard is pretty random I think. You should be able to discard a monster or something, as opposed to tributing.

XX-Saber Gottoms ...

The 1st level 9 Synchro?
Well it was bound to happen!!
It's not the most UN-Sychro-able monster, as it doesnt have such tight restrictions as ... say ... Trident Dragon ... which was level 10, and not un-Synchro-able either (u should know now that "un-Synchro-able" is not an actual word) ... but ... I ... I forget the point that I was making ...

Anywho ... Gottoms ... 3100 ATK. Kewl. He'll punch through just about any other big monster out there - Synchro, or otherwise - in a fair 1-on-1. Can't hate that! And then his effect? - Awesome. Assuming u are playing X-Sabers, which u may as WELL be, when u are using him, u can COMPLETELY cripple your opponent, especially since the only limit to how often u can use this effect is on how many X-Sabers u are holding.

... And the picture is BAD-ASS!!!!

Traditional: 4/5

N o V a
We're ending this week with a new monster in the X-Saber series, their newest Synchro monster XX-Saber Gottoms. Now honestly I dont know what to really say about this card. Its a level 9 Synchro monster that requires a tuner with 1 or more Earth monsters. Now this makes things somewhat difficult, but since you are allowed to use any tuner it makes things a little less difficult. Most people would use Emergency Teleport and cards like Rose, Warrior of Revenge to make the summon of this card more simple. Now there is somewhat of an easier way to summon it. One for One or Emergency Teleport to search out Mind Master and then simply tune Mind Master with a level 8 Earth monster, and there you go. Personally this card doesn't seem worth the trouble of summoning it. While its effect and stats are rather decent, it generally only fits into its own deck and is still rather difficult to summon. Its a decent card for X-Saber decks but outside of that the card isn't all that useful. Its ability to discard a card at random is a good one so long as you have an "infinite" tribute fodder for his effect, like Black Ptera, which I dont think the X-Sabers have, at least yet. So its a cool looking card, decent stats and effect but is still a pain to get out.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5

Basically if you’re playing X-Sabers, run multiple copies. If you’re not, don’t. :P. You can also use this guy in a non X-Saber deck if you’re playing EARTH decks.
