Continuing the Top 10 of the Year, and opening this week at #5, we have Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier.  This is still one of the best Synchro Monsters we've had released, and when a card gets Limited (or of some other such) before it even gets to us, its usually for a pretty damn good reason.  The only big downside against Trishula in my opinion is Level 9, not the hardest thing to accomplish in Synchro, but not the easiest either.  2700 attack is excellent, but low for a Level 9, in my humble opinion.  But the effect is incredible, triple removal, hitting the Hand, Field, and Graveyard, can just completely wreck the opponent and likely anything they're doing.
 
Ratings:

Traditional:  3/5
Advanced:  5/5
Art:  5/5

Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier is one of the best game changers in Yu-Gi-Oh. It strikes at almost every area of your game including the graveyard, field, and hand to devastate your plans. With many of the new cards in the game geared to special summoning multiple monsters, it is not hard to get the level 9 Trishula out. T.G. monsters are probably the best at getting it out with Striker and Wolf being special summoned and then summoning a level 4 monster like Reborn Tengu.
 
Maxx “C”, Effect Veiler, and Solemn Judgment and Warning are some of the best ways to stop the mighty Trish and keep it from being totally broken.  However, even with all of those answers, Trishula is still one of the main extra deck cards everyone runs, because when it goes off, you normally win.
 
Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 5/5

At the middle of all this, is our number 5 card. A true powerhouse that can banish more of your opponent's cards faster than any monarch. Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier. A level 9 Water/Dragon type Synchro monster, that needs 1 Tuner monster and 2 or more non-tuner monsters. And with 2700 ATK and 2000 DEF,it will not be taken down easily and its effect is what makes duelists try so hard to come up with new and any ways to get Trishula on the field. When Trishula is syncho summoned, you can banish one card from your opponent' hand, field and grave. A simple, yet powerful effect that can take away key cards from anywhere. When Trishula hits the other side of the field, something bad is about to happen, everytime. That makes Trishula number 5 on our list of best cards of 2011.
 
Traditional: 4 At the right time, can get rid of almost anything.
Advanced: 5 Just too powerful.Fun Yugioh Fact: Dragons are the only type that do not have a Flip-Effect monster.


Angelic Nightmare

Happy New Year to all and welcome to another week of the Top 10 cards of 2011! At number 5, kicking us off this icy month of January with a very fitting card- Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier!

Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

Dragon/ Water/ Lv 9/ 2700 ATK/ 2000 DEF

1 Tuner + 2 or more non-Tuner monsters

When this card is Synchro Summoned: You can banish up to one card each from your opponent's hand, field and Graveyard. (The card in the hand is chosen at random.)

When this card was released, it quickly found its way into many side decks the moment it was pulle from a pack, traded, or purchased. This was done for the very reason of its amazing effect. With the minimum of a 3 monsters to tune into this beast of a dragon is not the easiest of feats unless you set up the proper plays. Having it synchro summoned successfully will net you 3 banished cards from your opponent one from hand, grave and field (Key note: This card’s effect does not target). From time to time you’ll hit key cards like Gorz, Mirror Force, or Treeborn Frog that will help you settle your nerves about swinging for game.

Pros: Decent attack, great effect, and its effect does not target.

Cons: Heavy investment in setting up plays and easily countered.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 4/5

Trishula
                In my eyes upon others, this is one of the most powerful synchros in the game. Odds are you made this card with free materials(Tengu/Debris Dragon/Dandylion etc), so it is rather game changing. If your opponent cannot negate the summon or doesn’t have Veiler, this is a nice card to rebound with. Toss it back in with Avarice, and go into it again! If your deck synchro summons, you need a copy of this card no questions asked, it is very powerful and you could even consider banning the card
 
Advanced: 5/5
Trad: 3/5
