Friday

Koa'ki Meiru Bergzak closes the week, a Level 4, Earth attributed monster, who is a Warrior with 2000 attack and 200 defense. You know, it's interesting to see 2000 attack on a Level 4 and not have a damning restriction, aside from the normal dribble of sending "Iron Core of Koa'ki Meiru" to a Graveyard, or revealing a Warrior type monster.

Anyway, the effect here is simple. It has the Black Luster Solider--Envoy of the Beginning double attack. Nice enough effect, solid hitter for the Koa'ki Meiru Deck with the 2000 attack, so play him if you have room. (Does anyone even really play this Deck? If so, I'd be interested in seeing a Deck list.)

Ratings:

2.75/5 where it belongs
1/5 elsewhere
Art: 5/5

Koa'ki Meiru Bergzak ...

Bergzak ... Ok. He's good. For the stupid Koa'ki Meirus? ... Probably not so much. But pretty great for warriors. Revealing one warrior monster in your hand should be a fairly easy maintenance cost so long as ur not going with a strict Koa'ki Meiru build. And the reward for keeping him around is that u get one of the strongest 4 star normal summon monsters available (2000 ATK) that can attack twice so long as it kills something the 1st time. Great for getting rid of Dandylion Fluff tokens, Fires of Doomsday, monsters like Mystic Tomato and the like ... and even just laying on the damage after clearing up stall tactics like Treeborn Frog and such.

Not much else to say. If u like Warriors ... and u like non-restricted 4 star monsters ... and u like them to have a boat-load of punch ... and u like them to attack numerous times ... Then Bergzak is for u.

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced: 4/5

N o V a

Koa'ki Meiru Bergzak, this card is pretty bad ass. It can attack twice if it destroys a monster in battle, it has a solid 2000 attack, and its a level 4 warrior. And its easy to keep out so long as you reveal a Warrior monster. What decks run a decent amount of warriors, well, there is decks with the Destiny Hero engine, with Malicious and Destiny Draw, as well as other Destiny Heroes, and then theres Six Samurais, which would make for a rather interesting deck, because Bergzak adds an additional power house to the deck. Outside of Six Samurais and anything that uses the D-Engine, Bergzak really has no room in your deck.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3/5

Koa'ki Meiru Bergzak:

I'm not tired of complaining about these guys yet, so here we go... It seems as if they are trying way to hard to make these guys a playable deck type that they are just throwing random powerful cards their way now to try and hype them up. The Koa'ki archetype started as anti light and dark (meta) powerhouses, and now seem to have transitioned more into wanna-be quick killers. This guy being no exception... he is powerful as a 2000 atk double attacker, but he's STILL a Koa'ki Meiru monster, which means if you want him to last, you are running at least 2 incredibly worthless cards in your deck, and you had better have another warrior in your hand. It's just not worth it. Aside from the suck that is the Iron Core deck, this card by itself, is really not that bad, he gets to attack twice as a 4 star 2000 atk monster, then kills himself. That actually seems kind of balanced. Better than Plague Wolf anyway. Now if he just didn't have that stupid name...

Traditional: 2.0
Advanced: 2.5 (Ben Kai anyone?)

Friday: Koa'ki Meiru Bergzak

These comments are taken from my blog:

Another contradictory piece of KM support. Basically the entire assortment of KM monsters features some sort of anti-meta or permission effect. Bergzak is a monster that can conceivably push through almost 6000 damage against certain fields. However, I don’t understand why KM, of all archetypes, would receive this kind of explosive burst.
The weight of evidence, from Iron Core Luster to Automatic Laser to KM Guardian, Beetle, Drago, Ice, Doom, and others indicate that the archetype was focused on control and field presence.

Also, I just wanted to state that this card has serious potential in a Warrior-based strategy. However, I don't tend to agree with cards that create situations such as “I will swing over your Thunder King and then attack again for 2100 total points of damage. Hello there.”

T: 3.5/5
A: 3.5/5
