Genex Ally Duradark, a Genex monster that might
actually be playable outside the Genex Deck.
We have a Level 4, Dark attributed, Machine monster,
with 1800 attack and 200 defense. Now, for
starters, Machine is good, Dark is great, 1800
attack on Level 4, is solid.
One a turn during your Main Phase, you can select an
attack position monster your opponent controls and
destroy it, as long as its attribute is the same as
this card (Dark). Very likely this card will
only be able to pull this off once, before being
As stated, it is a good fit with Machines, Genex,
and fairly splashable in other Decks, maybe only
even as Tech, in my opinion. He can't attack
during the turn you use his effect, but you're not
sacrificing your whole Battle Phase, I don't think
Genex Ally Duradark …
Duradark … Overall, I don’t think much of the Genex
Allys, but Duradark is one of the exceptions. He’s
simple enough and pretty good at what he does. 4
star machine with a solid 1800 ATK score. His
DEF is virtually nothing, so we won’t even go there.
But once per turn, he can pop an ATK position
monster on ur opponent’s side if it has the same
attribute as him. The good news is that his
attribute is ‘Dark’, which is still the best and
most popular attribute in the game, thus there’s a
very good chance of u putting him to work,
especially against the better Synchros. The bad news
is … well, there really ISN’T any. Popping 1 monster
means he himself cannot attack this turn, but he
doesn’t restrict any of your other monsters from
attacking, which is what allows him to be playable.
Fits in great with Darks and fits in great when
fighting Darks … plus, he’s cool lookin’.
Welcome, Pojo-ers, to Weyard! As in, you're
either playing the new Golden Sun: Dark Dawn game
right now or you'll be Forever Alone.
And joining you in the isolation station will be
Genex Ally Duradark. And only Genex Ally Duradark,
because he kills all of his friends. Robo-Cop can
use his turn's attack to blast away an
attack-position DARK monster the opponent controls.
Even thought he has a solid 1800 ATK score, he's
only good against certain decks, such as Dark,
Zombies, Blackwings and Gravekeepers. If you're
going to be maining an anti-Dark card, it's going to
be something that will do something for you in more
than one matchup.
If you're siding anti-Dark cards, you're siding
Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror and Consecrated Light.
Art: Totally wishes he could use Psynergy.
Fun Fact: You can now shut the computer off and go
back to playing Golden Sun.
Tomorrow: You play more Golden Sun with a
funny-looking guy with a funny name.
Ok Hey there COTD readers, here we have one of
the New Genex Alley monsters. They are basically a
sub-archtype of the genex monsters, all genex
support applies to them. Duradark is an 1800 attack
and 200 defense level 4 DARK machine. Which is
promising. Machine and DARK are good, 1800 is great
and 200 is dismal. His effect is interesting, once
per turn you can destroy one face up Attack Postion
DARK monster your opponent controls, but lose the
ability to attack,
It's....ok. I mean its great against Gravekeepers
and any other DARK deck, but useless against any
other deck with different attributes. And the loss
of attack hurts.
Genex Ally Duradark is a level 4 Dark Machine
monster with 1800 atk, and a measly 200 def. This
immediately puts it into the rankings as salvo
But its effect is what truly makes this guy
effective. Once per turn, you can destroy one face
up attack position monster with the same Attribute
as him, but he cannot attack the turn he activates
Here's the run down. This guy is instant dark hate.
Summon and blow up a dark your opponent has, whether
it's that big blackwing or a gravekeeper that
hopefully isn't recruiter. He's also a great beat
stick at 1800 atk.
But he doesn't stop being good there. Use DNA
Transplant and you can now hit everything on your
opponent's field. And Genex Ally (which
reminds me of Ally of justice) have their own
monster which changes the attribute of any genex
ally monster you control. All in all, this is
a pretty decent card. And I could see decks based
around this guy alone pop up. I definitely would see
this as side board material with gravekeepers making
a rise in the meta.
Art:4/5 Like a mini robocop
Hey Pojo, Pheano here with another Card Of The
Day For you.
Sorry about my two week hiatus but I was really
busy with getting ready for Thanksgiving and some
other things that I don’t need to talk about with
you guys, but I’m back! We got a really great week
for card reviews coming up with some really cool
tech cards from the latest pack that I have been
waiting to review. Today we will be taking a look at
one of the OCG imports that is a Secret Rare in
Starstrike Blast, Genex Ally Duradark. Genex Ally
Duradark is a Level four Dark Machine Monster with
eighteen hundred Attack and two hundred Defense. In
a nutshell its effect is that once per turn you can
destroy a monster with the same Attribute as it, so
a Dark Monsters unless your using some combo with it
to change its Attribute.
Ok I’ll be honest here when I first saw this card
in the spoiler for Starstrike Blast and I saw Genex
I stopped reading. But then I saw Ryan Spicer
talking about it so I did some research into the
card and found out how good this card truly was.
This card has great side deck potential against the
best Attribute in the game, Dark. Dark has always
received and disproportional amount of support
compared to the other Attributes. And this is
another card like Consecrated Light, which is meant
to fix that problem by being able to specifically
take down that Attribute. In the past people have
used Blackwing – Sirocco The Dawn as a side deck
card against Blackwings since you can use it to gain
the Attack of your opponent’s Blackwings also so you
can use it to run over their Monsters. What this has
over Blackwing – Sirocco The Dawn is that they can’t
stop you with chainable cards like a Book Of Moon.
So if I activate this with priority and they use
Bottomless Trap Hole on it, it will still destroy
the Monster where as if you put Blackwing – Sirocco
The Dawn in that situation then it will be stopped
and they will be able to gain board control on you.
There are three decks that I would really like to
see this in the side deck of. First of all is the
more obvious deck, Genex. More specifically Formula
Genex Synchro, its kind of like Formula Frog
Monarchs but with Genex monsters instead of Frogs.
You can easily search this card out with Genex
Neutron, which will help you deal with one of the
decks harder match ups, Blackwings. Blackwings are a
hard match up for the deck since it doesn’t play
much back rows giving the Treeborn Frog. The Next
deck that this is pretty good in would be a Black
Salvo based deck. Since this is a Level four Machine
you can use this with Black Salvo and its Dark
Attribute will further help the engine of the deck
by fueling Chaos Sorcerer, Dark Armed Dragon and
Allure Of Darkness. The last deck that I would
really like to see this in would be Flamvell. No you
may think that this would be an odd choice but if
you side deck in one of these you can easily search
this out with Flamvell Poun. Outside of these three
decks this card can just generally be side decked in
anything just as an out to Blackwings.
In the Traditional Format this card is ok if you
are up against a non FTK deck like a Chaos deck,
other than that this card doesn’t do much in the
Traditional Format since as I have said time and
time again the Traditional Format is more about
FTK’s. Also since your playing in the Traditional
Format you can use Tribe Infecting Virus which is
infinitely better than this.
Really good side deck card for Blackwings.
Hit me up on Pojo or Youtube (pheanoblack) if you
have any comments or questions, I’m always open to
