Well shifting gears back to Hidden Arsenal 6 for the time being, we open the week with a rather interesting XYZ Monster, Vylon Disigma.  We have a Rank 4, Light attributed, Fairy type XYZ Monster.  Light and Fairy are well supported, this brings Honest into play.  2500 attack and 2100 defense are certainly reasonable enough.  You may know what is more often than not, an immediate downside, in the fact this Monster requires three cards to XYZ Summon though.  So you immediate think, is the effect worth the third Monster?
 
Let's find out.  By discarding an XYZ Material from this card, you can Target (note Target) a face-up, attack position, effect Monster, your opponent controls.  Could we have made that any more selective?  Not just a Monster, but face-up.  Not just face-up, but attack position.  Not just a face-up, attack position Monster, but an Effect one (ironically likely the easiest part to accomplish), and that card is equipped to this card.  I just want to throw out that I wish more people played Counter Fairies, just want that on record.  But back to the card..
 
I do really enjoy the fact of the latter effect, in how if you Battle a Monster with an attribute the same as the equipped Monster, you destroy that Monster at the beginning of the Damage Step.  It's honestly not bad, but it's certainly flawed.  Maybe if it destroyed a Monster in the same spot, but even then I don't see it being worth three Monsters.  BLS is going to remove this, assuming it gets the chance to attack this anyway.  I just think this is something better off not played.

We are going to be taking a better look at some of the Hidden Arsenal #6 cards this week. We are going to start off the week with an interesting Xyz monster in Vylon Disigma. This light fairy monster has a nice attack and defense -  2500/2100. It also has a pricy summoning fee, requiring three level 4 monsters.
 
Vylon Disigma has a pretty nice effect in that it can snatch one of those pesky attack position effect monsters your opponent controls and use it’s attribute to become a Cataster against any monster it battles with the same attribute. Of course, that is if your opponent does not Warning, Bottomless, or Effect Veiler it.
 
There are a couple decks in play today that can summon Vylon Disigma easily. Turbo Gadgets with Ultimate Offerings is a really good deck as you get a bunch of Gadgets from your deck to make Disigma. In fact, I would say that all of these 3x4 Xyz monsters coming out are tailor made for Gadgets. Another deck that is tailor make for Vylon Disigma is Elemental HERO Bubble Beat. Special summon Photon Thrasher, normal summon Stratos and search for Bubbleman. Set your hand and then special summon Bubbleman. Easy peasy!!
 
If you are running a deck that can get 3 or more level 4 monsters to the field in one or two turns. Then Vylon Disigma should be in your Extra Deck along with Shock Master.

It's Hidden Arsenal 6 week...I think. We're looking at a real big fairy in Vylon Disigma. An Xyz monster with a Rank of 4, needing 3 level 4 monsters to summon. Once per turn you can detach 1 Xyz material from this card to target one face up ATK position effect monster your opponent controls, and equip it to this card. At the start of the battle step, if this monster battles your opponent's monster that has the same Attribute as a card equipped to this monster by this effect, Destroy that monster. This is best used against certain decks, like an all DARK or LIGHT deck.  You use Disigma to steal an opponent's monster , and wreck anything that resembles him, and just destroy it.  This is a pretty good effect, considering Disigma needs 3 level 3 monsters to get out. I played against this card recently and it can wreck your field if you aren't protecting yourself.  A good card that can be used in and out of the Vylon theme.

There was a mix-up in regards to my Yata-Garasu article last Wednesday so that only half of my article went up. That should be resolved now. Whether you want to bother going back to read it is your decision, but for now, meet the monsters of Duel Terminal.
 
Aesthetics: 5/5 Provoked by the warring of the four Duel Terminal clans, that of the Gustos, Gishkis, Gem-Knights, and Lavals, the Steelswarms crawled from the depths of the earth and threatened all of that which existed. The tribe that had locked the Steelswarms away so long ago, the Vylons, descended from the skies to once again combat their archenemy. The Vylons Synchro Summoned their ultimate monster, Vylon Omega which eradicated the Steelswarms in an cataclysmic outburst. The Vylon race now sits crumbled, having exhausted their energies to extinguish the evil Steelswarms. The Gishkis resume war against Gustos and the Lavals continue to assault the Gem-Knights. The endangered Vylon tribe, already set in disarray after the Steelswarm War, cringes further in disarray at the ongoing violence of Duel Terminal. Warped by the profound amount of mutual death between the Vylons and Steelswarms, the remaining Vylons (Stigma, Tesseract, Pentachloro) bound themselves together and opened up a wormhole consisting of antimatter. They opened up the ancient Greek alphabet and gave life to the letter "Disigma" (AKA Sampi, ϡ, which in English sounds like "ss" or "ts") and gave birth to Vairon Dishiguma. After all, the only reliable way to bring peace to the universe is to destroy all life...only then can fighting cease forever. Disigma is allowed to, three times, kidnap a member of one of the tribes, learn its strengths and extract its weaknesses, and resultingly threaten to drive its family into extinction. Only the Gem-Knights stand a chance, thanks to their profound amount of Non-Effect Monsters.
 
Yes, you read that right, Vylon Disigma CANNOT steal Normal Monsters. Although very very few Decks actually use Normal Monsters, so it shouldn't really be that big a deal.
 
Triple Rank 4 Xyz...that's pretty hefty. I've covered Shock Master and Illumiknight before, and I gotta say, it's really not the easiest thing to do but if you do, your effect should make up for it. So...is Disigma's effect any good?
Disigma can steal up to three of your opponent's Attack Mode monsters and can do that right when it's summoned, meaning it already does a good job of wiping away your opponent's monsters. Remember though, Disigma can only steal Attack Mode monsters, meaning Disigma is only worth summoning if your opponent is already attacking you. If your opponent is beating you down with Dark Armed Dragon or Red -Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon or some other big guy and you find a way to summon three Level 4's at once, you can instantly eradicate your opponent's big monster, which is very good, but...yeah. And I know that you can use the effect up to three times, but once you summon Disigma, your opponent will be switching all monsters to Defence anyway. Until your opponent draws Mystical Space Typhoon or Heavy Storm, and also assuming all monsters your opponent is using is mostly the same Attribute, Disigma will instantly destroy each monster it fights (EXCEPT when attacking facedown monsters, Disigma's effect won't work that way, but it has a good Dark-Magician-approved stats to work with).
 
Yes, Disigma is a powerful monster, despite some more-than-meets-the-eye disappointing features about it, namely the triple Xyz Material. Given how well Disigma can eliminate an Attack Mode monster from your opponent and cause possible rampage from there on out, it is worth splashing into decks that can swarm Level 4 monsters. The actual Vylon Deck can swarm Level 4 monsters extremely easily, but in my opinion, Disigma is not THAT impressive there. Vylon Segment, Vylon Filament, or one of the Union Monsters can be equipped onto Disigma to make it extremely protected (combined with its own effect), and Disigma can also be used to help fuel Vylon Omega's effect, but that's pretty much it as far as compatibility Disigma has with the rest of the Vylon family. I guess if you have Creature Swap, you can end up equipping Disigma with another Vylon monster, but that's kinda troublesome. Also, Disigma clogs up your Spell/Trap Zone, when Vylons already have a huge reliance on having space for so many Spell Cards. But yeah, Disigma is definitely cool.
 
Trad: 1.5/5 (easy summon with Magical Scientist although I don't see the point)
Adv: 3.5/5
 
Philosophy Corner: Adolf Hitler quit the Olympics in 1936 when Jesse Owens of the United States won men's track-and-field. I wonder how Hitler would've reacted to the Opening/Closing Ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics.
