Dark Paladin

Extra Veiler, a Spellcaster who carries a sword, which might lead you to believe he is a Warrior...Anyway, we have a Level 2, Light attributed monster, with 600 attack, and 200 defense, (not a Tuner) for the record.
 
When your opponent Special Summons a monster, or monsters, you can Special Summon Extra Veiler from your Hand.  I'd say that's good, as you're likely to pull this off during their turn.  During said turn of Special Summon by this effect, your opponent takes any and all effect Damage you would have taken from their effects instead.
 
It's actually not the worst effect, it just isn't the most useful of effects.  As previously mentioned, not being a Tuner really reduces the playability of this (or any Level 4 or below) monster.  Neat picture though.
 
Ratings:
 
Traditional:  1.25/5 
Advanced:     2.25/5 
Art:  4/5  This is a Spellcaster how?  Must have to do with ability of the card?

The CotD crew is taking a Thank You Giving break, so there are only three reviews. We'll start off with Extra Veiler, Effect Veiler's distant cousin. You know the one. The one you have to deal with every year at Christmas and Thanksgiving, the one  whose will you'll never get intto because you made her run out of the house crying two years ago. That one.
 
This card's special summon reacts to the opponent's special summon. As a level 2 non-Tuner, there's nothing special about Effect Veiler's stats. Even worse, despite the fact that it and three hundred other cards redirect effect damage to the opponent, this only lasts for one turn. This effect will hardly ever do anything. This card is just filler trash.
 
1/5
Art: 5D's filler art is the only thing worse than 5D's filler effects.
Fun Fact: Amazoness decks can defeat Shooting Star Dragon easily by using Amazoness Archers and Shrink.
Tomorrow: Funny names.

Today’s card is Extra Veiler. I wasn’t really impressed by this card. First off, this card is not a tuner, and it has pathetic stats. Next, its ability is so specific that I doubt you’ll ever be able to effectively play this card in any kind of competitive play. I guess the only real upsides to this card is that you get some kind of field presence and you can use honest with him… like every other light monster. There are just too many cards that are better than this little guy. Cards that are this specific with their effects are one of two things, broken beyond belief or never played at all. Anyone want to try for a guess on this one?

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
