Wednesday

Continuing the week, we come to Sephylon, the Ultimate Time Lord. This is a Level 10, Light attributed, Fairy-type Monster, who also has 4000 attack and defense points. Sephylon cannot be Normal Summoned or Set, and can only be Special Summoned by having ten or more Monsters in your Graveyard. This Monster is just screaming for abuse in LIghtsworn Decks. Now, what can Sephylon do? Once per turn, you can Special Summon a Level 8 or higher Fairy-type Monster from your Graveyard. It's effect(s) is(are) negated, but for a trade off, its attack becomes 4000. Let's see...swarming the Field with 4000 attackers--I like that, a lot.

We have a spectacular card to review for you today. Sephylon, the Ultimate Time Lord comes with the card we reviewed yesterday, Shooting Quasar Dragon, with a paid subscription to Shonen Jump magazine. First a little back ground. Sephylon is based on the Jewish and Christian God, Yahweh. It was named after Sephirot or the Tree of Life which the ten lower “Time Lords” are based. This is probably why we have the requirement of 10 monsters in the grave to special summon it. All of the other “Time Lords” cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects.

Sephylon has a fairly easy summoning requirement in the right deck. Those decks include Fairy decks, Lightsworn, Twilight, Machine, and Magical Merchant variants. It is really good in Fairy decks because they already play around 30 monsters, can get monsters in the grave quickly, and play several level 8 monsters in Kristya and Hyperion. Lightsworn decks can mill quickly, play Kristya, and can clear the field with Judgment Dragon. They also have Beckoning Light. Sense Sephylon is a light monster, all you have to do is load the graveyard with a couple of Judgment Dragons and Sephylon, play Beckoning Light, and attack for game.

Machine decks can load the graveyard with Future Fusion and crank out this bad boy easily. Magical Merchant variants can load the grave while searching out key cards like Monster Reincarnation. And then there are the Darklord monsters including the ones we just got in Legendary Collection #2. Sephylon, the Ultimate Time Lord loves to special summon them as all but one of them is a level 8 or higher. There will be someone who comes up with an awesome OTK or FTK deck. One idea is to use a Feather of Phoenix to place Sephylon on top of your deck and summon Phantom of Chaos, use its effect on Sky Scourge Norleras to clear the field and to draw and play Sephylon, special summon a level 8 Fairy and pump it to 4000 and attack for 8000 life points.

As you can see, this card is very good and can be used in a multitude of decks even if they do not have level 8 Fairy monsters in them.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5

It's the middle of the week, and we are taking a look at the JUMP card, Sephylon, The Ultimate Time Lord. Sephylon is a Level 10, Light/Fairy type with 4000 ATK and DEF. This is a very big fairy. Sephylon's effect allows it to be special summon when you have 10 or more monsters in your grave, and can't be special summoned in any other way. Sorry Reborn the Monster. Once per turn you can special summon one level 8 or higher fairy from your hand or graveyard. That summoned monster's effects are negated BUT it's ATK becomes 4000. Now before you go throwing Sephy into your fairy decks, read on. Sehpy here can be splashed into most decks, including Lightsworn. Need to get monsters in the grave? Morphing Jar, Card Destruction, Magical Merchant and Foolish Burials get monsters in there pretty fast. While Sephylon's built-in monster reborn that negates effects and turns its ATK into 4000 is very good, Time Lord is good enough to stand out in almost any deck, and could win in a late game, top decking contest.

Angelic Nightmare

Sephylon, the Ultimate Time Lord
Light/ Fairy/ Lv 10/ 4000 ATK/ 4000 DEF
 
Pros: Light Chaos Food, High Attack, Great Recursion Effect.
Cons: Summoning requirements, enough said.
 
Let’s talk about the pros of the card. You have a 4000 ATK beat stick that can have “Honest” to back it up. It’s effect let’s you revive a lv 8+ fairy from your great. With the release of the new Dark Lord monsters in Legendary Collection 2, it shouldn’t be so hard. The hard part is getting them into the grave ASAP to get this beefy beat stick on the field.
The cons, you need 10 monsters in your grave. If you’re running THAT many Lv 8 monsters I advise running 3 “Trade-In” at minimum as well as a recommended Hand/Card Destruction to keep from clogged hands. Also, maybe running Armageddon Knight/Dark Grepher might not too bad of an idea either.
I imagine running this with Gallas the Star Beast can lead to some nasty burn damage.
 
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5 (You need a build revolved around this card. It might be worth a shot.)

That Guy

I Need Some More Time

These last few weeks have been flying and honestly I've lost some time and a few reviews plus our Halloween card review. Luckily though more time is always easy to find, its always right in front of you! Now time to end all these time based puns and start a mess more below by checking out Sephylon, the Ultimate Time Lord.

It's no joke that the moment Sephylon is successfully summoned your time is up! I mean if someone was fighting for the title of Lord of the Fairies Sephylon took the crown and ate his cake too. Examining this card you will immediately notice the brick wall of 4000 atk and def and hope that their must be some balance via this cards effect: you can not normal summon or special summon it without going through his special condition of having 10 dudes chilling in the grave. That's it...just ten cards in the grave...well I don't have to be a professor to tell you that Sephylon + unprepared opponent = WIN! I mean lightsworn can get ten cards in the grave in the bat of an eye, mill decks can possibly set themselves up for this card; the capabilities for this card could easily fill up this whole webpage and set it on an endless scroll. Duelist might say that only being able to pull out a level 8 fairy is too specific of an effect, but think about what any person who's reading that just said: a level 8 fairy...the card you are summoning itself is already boss even if the effect seems strict. Add on the cherry on top of this Time Lord sundae and your newly summoned fairy friend also has 4000 atk, boosting cards like Master Hyperion, Splendid Venus, Tualatin, Voltanis, and even Archlord Kristya. I'm definitely seeing this card make a big impact on the mid to late game section of a lot of duels as one heck of a show stopper... you know what...Final Countdown Decks just got ten turns shorter!

Traditional: 5/5 (Easy to dump the right cards to your grave)
Advanced: 5/5 (See Above reason)
Art: (While I don't normally comment on this - I noticed they referenced this guy to basically being the literal interpretation of God on YugiWiki)
Bonus: Please somebody this with Time Wizard just for some good old fashion laughs!

P.S. If anybody ever has any critiques they would like to throw my way about the writers of pojo.com or myself, send your thoughts to djgamer101@aol.com

Wednesday:

Sephylon, the Ultimate Time Lord
Lv 10/LIGHT/Fairy/4000A/4000D
"Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Must be Special Summoned (from your hand) by having 10 or more monsters in your Graveyard, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. Once per turn: You can Special Summon 1 Level 8 or higher Fairy-Type monster from your hand or Graveyard. Its effect(s) are negated, and its ATK becomes 4000."

Another ridiculously high-powered fairy. Also, if he's a Time Lord, where's his T.A.R.D.I.S.? Getting 10 monsters into your graveyard will be a lengthly process, so he's obviously a late game play. There's not a lot of high level fairys that get used,so his revive other high-level fairies effect won't see much play. You'd have to build a deck around him, rather than just toss him into an Agent deck, so his usability is limited.

Traditional: 1.5
Advanced: 1.5

ZONE said, “Let there be topdecking” and he saw that it was terrible. So he made Sephylon, the Ultimate Time Lord to make it right.

This is a level 10 Fairy-type monster with 4000 attack and defense. To summon him, you need to have 10 or more monsters in the graveyard. That’s it really. Oh, and he has an effect that special summons a level 8 or higher Fairy from the grave or the hand and raises its attack to 4000. This kind of effect appears to be a common feature of the Time Lords; they are great draws in the endgame.

Lightsworn decks can easily get 10 monsters into the graveyard. Darklord decks have plenty of high level fairies that can make use of Sephylon’s revival effect. I’m personally going to try to make a deck with Aitsu, Koitsu, and this card.

Overall, this is obviously a powerful card. A dead draw in the opening and a miracle draw in the end. Depending on the speed of your deck and number of monsters in it, you may or may not want to try 1. Free 4000 point beaters are always welcome it my book.

Traditional: 3/5 (might help a comeback)
Advanced: 4/5 (very strong, very generic)
Art: 3.5/5 (I imagine Sartorius summoning Sephylon because of the Level 10, Fairy-type, 9 syllable name similarities)
