Closing the week we look at Gishki Noellia.  This is another new Archtype, in an effort to make Rituals more playable.  Good luck with that (and I'm even a guy who supports and thinks things like Rituals are fun!)  Just for a tidbit, according to wiki, these Gishki Monsters use and harness the same power as the Monsters as the Ice Barrier, but use it for a different purpose.  Anyway, this family of cards has three specific Magic cards used to Ritual Summon their own Monsters.  One of them is garbage, one of them is fairly conditional, while the third might actually be reasonable.  Anyway, these Decks focus on constant recycling, and dumping, in order to easily use (reuse) effects and Monsters.  (I see this as not nearly as intriguing as say the Laval theme from earlier, and far more difficult to use, and not just because of the Rituals involved).  They need much more support to be released in English to be even remotely successful, in my opinion, anyway.  As for this card, Level 4, Spellcaster, Water...1700 attack and 1000 defense.  When Normal Summoned (and ONLY Normal Summoned) you can reveal the top five cards of your Deck.  Any Ritual Magic cards and Gishki Monster cards are sent to the Graveyard, while the others are returned to the bottom of the Deck in any order you choose.  This card is good enough for the Deck, I suppose.  But I think this would be much better an Archtype if it could just add things to the Hand faster as opposed to dumping and recycling.  Until there's more support, or someone breaks this thing open and wins an SJC or something, I see this as garbage.

Our final review of the week is an interesting card, because it has to do with the Ritual monsters and Ritual support. Haven't seen a Ritual monster played since the field clearing days of Demise, King of Armageddon. Gishki Noellia is a WATER/Spellcaster, with 1700 ATK and 1000 DEF. When this card is Normal summoned, you can reveal the top 5 cards of your deck; send any Ritual spell cards or Gishki monsters to your graveyard and all other cards go to the bottom of your deck in any order. That's pretty snazzy when you team that effect with Gishki Beast to special summon a level 4 or lower Gishki monster in your graveyard in face up defense position. You can Xyz summon, or Ritual summon Evigishki Levianima or Evigishki Soul Ogre. Or if you need some of those cards in your hand that you put in the graveyard with Noellia's effect, you can use Salvage or Gishki Marker's effect, or both. This a good card for the Ritual monsters, even if it is limited to just the Gishki and Evigishki theme. The only downfall is that it may take some time to set up, depending on your hand. By the time you might be ready, it could be game over by then.
