Happy Halloween! Welcome to Shonen Jump Promo week! Opening this week, we look at Endless Decay. This is a Level 5, Zombie type Monster, of the Earth attribute with ? attack and 0 defense. Now, this is one of the more interesting Monster cards out there. Level 5 obviously requires a tribute, but Endless Decay has a way around that. If you have 2000 or less Lifepoints, you can Special Summon this card from your Hand. When Normal or Special Summoned, the attack of this Monster becomes half of your opponent's Lifepoints. This is obviously best used when you are really behind, if your opponent hasn't lost any Lifepoints, the attack would be 4000. Honestly, it's a nice little piece of Tech, but I think your Zombie Deck can survive with out it. It's quite situational.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
Art: 4/5

If you do not have a subscription or two or three to Shonen Jump Magazine, you are ether broke or an idiot. Harsh words but true. The cards we are reviewing this week are all free with your paid subscription. The first card we are reviewing is the card from the last magazine, Endless Decay. I have to admit that I am not a fan of this card. It requires you to have 2000 life points or less to special summon from your hand for one thing. If you have less than 2000 life points, you’re probably loosing badly or if your not, your opponent’s life points are down so Endless Decay is not going to help you very much.
 
Fortunately, there are other ways to special summon this monster. One, you can summon it with Pyramid Turtle, because it has 0 defense. If it is early game, you would want to search for Endless Decay as it would have around 4000 attack points. It is also easy to special summon from the graveyard with Book of Life, Call of the Haunted, or Monster Reborn. There are also tons of cards that can bring your life points down to 2000. I am not a big proponent for doing that however.
 
Being a level 5 monster has its advantages. Summon Cyber Dragon or The Tricky and then this card and you have yourself a level 5 Xyz monster. It is great for Synchro summons as well. You can make level 6’s with Effect Veiler or level 7’s with Plaguespreader. This leads us to one of its biggest drawbacks. When cards like Effect Veiler or Skill Drain negate Endless Decay’s effects, its attack becomes 0 and stays at 0. That is not good in a meta that is heavy with both these cards.

It's Halloween here on COTD and we're looking at a seres of JUMP cards this week. And the first card is the scary Endless Decay. Decay is a Level 5 Dark/Zombie with ? ATK and 0 DEF. If you have 2000 or less LP, you can special summon this card from your hand. When this card is normal or special summoned, Decay's ATK is equal to half your opponent's LP. Right off the bat, Endless Decay cannot be special summoned from the deck by Mystic Tomato due to his attack being ?, but Pyramid Turtle can get him out pretty easy as well as Call of the Mummy. Decay can be also used for Allure of Darkness, and if you wanna keep your opponent's LP high enough, Upstart Goblins as a draw engine will make sure Decay's ATK stays high. Endless Decay makes for great Synchros and Xyzs. The downsides of this card, is while having a 4000 ATK monster on your first turn is good, as your opponent's LP goes down, so does Endless Decay's ATK. Also a well timed Effect Veiler could turn this monster's ATK into 0. Also 0 DEF can hurt as well. Endless Decay is pretty good, and could catch your opponent off guard with a possible 4000 ATK monster on the first turn, that's a big scary mummy to knock down.

Traditional: 1 Your LPs could be 0 before you can get him out.
Advanced: 2.5 He might need his own deck
Art: 4 Where's Brendan Fraser when you need him?
Tomorrow: This dragon really shoots for the stars.

Starting off a new week is the JUMP promo, Endless Decay!
 
Decay is an interesting and quirky Level 5 DARK Zombie-Type monster with ? ATK and 0 DEF. He has an effect that allows you to Special Summon him from your hand if you have 2000 or less Life Points and when he's Normal or Special Summoned, his ATK becomes half of your opponent's Life Points.
 
Interesting indeed. Ideally you won't ever be at the point where you can use this card's Special Summoning effect (unless you're using Solemns recklessly) and his ATK is variable since it depends on your opponent's Life Points (hopefully they aren't using Solemns too...). I wouldn't personally use it.
 
However, this card does have some things going for it. Without any Life Point manipulation involved, this card will have 4000 ATK which is rather hefty. Plus this card can be easily searched out by Goblin Zombie due to its 0 DEF, and most notably Pyramid Turtle.

Angelic Nightmare

Endless Decay
Zombie/Dark/ Lv5/ ? ATK/ 0 DEF

Just off the Shonen Jump presses, I introduce to you the newest addition to my Zombie-Sworn deck! Mill this then use Book of Life or Zombie Master’s effect! Really though folks, this card can compose a really big early game threat and easy Synchro/Rank 5 fodder.

Zombie decks are very versatile when it comes to the deck search/revive game. Search is with Pyramid Turtle or Goblin Zombie. Also, thi card is dump-able via Dark Grepher, Armageddon Knight, and Foolish Burial then revive it with Book of Moon or Zombie Master.

Pros: Great Attribute, Type, Lv, can be a free special summon for fodder, and effect potential.

Cons: His effect prevents him from special summoning himself for massive damage, and the attack potential can be rather minimal if used late game.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced 3/5 in Zombie variant decks.

"If you have 2000 Life Points or less, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand). When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: This card's ATK becomes half the opponent's Life Points."

Yet another zombie card, but this one has a very interesting effect in that he actually helps you better the more you're losing by. Being able to special summon him is always a good thing, and this guy can allow for a major come-from-behind victory.

Traditional: 4.5
Advanced: 4.5
