 Vanadis of the Nordic Ascendant

You can substitute this card for any 1 "Nordic" Tuner monster for a Synchro Summon. If this card is used as a Synchro Material Monster, all other Synchro Material Monsters must be "Nordic" monsters. Once per turn, you can send 1 "Nordic" monster from your Deck to the Graveyard to change this card's Level to the Level of the monster you sent to the Graveyard, until the End Phase.

Card Ratings
Traditional: 1.90
Advanced: 4.00

Vanadis of the Nordic Ascendant, a Fairy tpe Tuner, with 1200 attack and 400 defense.  Obviously this is one of the Tuners speifically to fuel the Aesir Deck, in order to more easly perform a Synchro to summon Thor, Loki, or Odin.  You can use this as a substitute for any one "Nordic" Tuner monster for said Synchro.
 
If you use this monster all other Synchro Material Monsters must be "Nordic" monsters.  Now, the best part of Vanadis is the fact that she can discard a Nordic monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, to change her own Level to the same as the monster you just dumped, until the End Phase.
 
This is also great too, as it feeds monsters into the Graveyard to feed the big boss Synchros too, as they can be used to be removed for Special Summoning if they are destroyed, or what have you.  If you are playing with them, you are likey using this I think.

Today's card is Vanadis of the Nordic Ascendant, which is a 4-star dark fairy with 1200 ATK and 400 DEF, though the stats are negligible because it's a tuner. Vanadis is the generic tuner for any Nordic deck, as it can be used as any 'Nordic' synchro material monster, though all of your other synchro material monsters must be Nordic as well. Vanadis is primarily used with the Tanngrisnir tokens in order to make the Aesir of your choice. She also has an ability that lets you dump any Nordic from deck to grave in order to give her the star level of that monster until the end of the turn, so if you end up needing a 3 or 2 star tuner for some reason, you can make her into one. A nice trick you can do is to dump another Vanadis with this effect, so that your Aesir will now have two revives instead of just one. All in all, great card for a deck of any Nordic variety. Now if only it wasn't so expensive...

Fun Fact: Vanadis is overpriced
Another Fun Fact: Pokemon Black is awesome!

Vanadis is what you could call the centerpiece of the Nordic deck. Her stats are pretty bad, and being a DARK doesn't do much to help it in the Nordic deck. As a Fairy, it can work in Valhalla versions.

Vanadis can copy the level of any Nordic from your deck, by sending it to the graveyard. This can be very helpful for mixing up levels to get the right Sychro, and for fueling the revival effects of the Aesir. It can only use other Nordic monsters when performing a Sychro Summon, but that's not a big problem if you use Tanngrisnir of the Nordic Beasts.

Not much to today's review, as Vanadis can't really be used outside of a Nordic deck. But within that deck, Vanadis is amazing.

Traditional: 1/5 Nordic's don't FTK.
Advanced: 3/5 If Nordics could just get a bit more support, they'd be high tier. Vanadis is one of the reasons for that.

Here we have a Nordic card. This one is Vanadis of the Nordic Ascendant, A DARK Fairy Tuner with 1200 attack and 400 defense. Vanadis here can subsitute itself for any Nordic tuner, since Loki, Thor and Odin all need specific tuners. So yeah thats actually pretty good for them. However all the rest of the synchro materials must be Nordic, which considering your synching for a Nordic Synchro in a Nordic deck, probably isnt that much of a stretch, unless you stuffed your Nordic deck with a bunch of non nordic monsters, to which I would reply. Why did you do this? But I digress. Her last effect is you can send one nordic card from the deck to the grave to have her be the same level as the monster sent, so you get a free mill and level adjustment. Pretty cool, could set up some plays.

So yeah all in all a pretty good card for nordics.

Vanadis of the Nordic Ascendant

Now here we have some good support for the Nordic themed decks. Vanadis is a level 4 LIGHT Fairy Tuner with 1200 ATK and 400 DEF. These stats mean almost nothing, except that because of the whole Nordic in the name thing that it works with all of those support cards, which is not much but a littl ebit of a plus.

The effect is that it can be used to substitute for any Nordic Tuner in a Nordic Synchro, meaning it is easier to bring out one of the Nordic Gods, Thor, Loki or Odin. It can also send a Nordic monster from the deck to the graveyard in order to make it's level equal to the monster that you sent to the graveyard. It can also only be use in a Synchro summon if the other monsters are Nordic.

This is the only support card that is even close to making the Nordic deck playable, in a fun way. It is a good card, but not quite enough to make it competitive, which is almost sad. Almost.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-3.5/5
