We are going to be looking at some cards for a pretty neat spellcaster type deck called Gagaga. Yea, it kind of sounds like baby talk, but it is a deck that has the possibilities for playing with the big boys. Today’s card is Gagaga Girl. At 1000 attack, a spellcaster, and having a level of 3, it can be special summoned quite easily. Spellcasters have tons of support and can be special summoned with cards like Magician’s Circle. With 1000 attack, you can search for it with Sangan, special summon it with Mystic Tomato, or special summon it from the graveyard with one of your 3 Call of the Haunteds or Limit Reverse.
 
Because of the effects of Gagaga Girl, you want to use this card with Gagaga Magician. Once you get both to the field you can make almost any Xyz monster or special summon Sorcerer of Dark Magic. Being able to summon almost any Xyz monster gives you one tremendous tool box of effects that are very useful for any given situation. In the coming days, we will be looking at more cards that work well with this deck type so stay tuned.
 
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5

I'm back from a short break to review "Card names you can't say 5 times real fast week" here on pojo.  We start with a card that looks like we've see her somewhere before, Gagaga Girl! Much like Yugi's Dark Magician has his Dark Magician Girl, Yuma's Gagaga Magician's get his own female playmate. She's a DARK/Spellcaster with 1000 ATK and 800 DEF. Her effect is: You can target 1 face up Gagaga Magician you control and have this card become the same as the targeted Gagaga Magician's. If you Xyz summon using another Gagaga monster, you can target one special summoned monster your opponent controls and make that monster's ATK into 0. This is a good card for the Gagaga/Xyz theme, but it could have been so broken by simply adding "You can special summon this card if you control a face up Gagaga Magician" to it. So kudos for not adding that. On its own Gagaga Girl and her stats aren't the best, but she's not here just to look pretty. She works along with Gagaga Magician to help you get your bigger Xyz monsters out by matching Gagaga Magician's level, so use her effect after you use Gagaga Magician's effect first. There's other cards that can help out the lovely Gagaga Girl, but that's for another day....tomorrow to be precise.

Gagaga Girl
I somehow get the feeling no one cares about the short biographies new people on the review team give, so I’ll just keep mine concise. Contact me at abc_at_123.com@hotmail.com.

I’ve been vying to get on Pojo’s review team for two years now, being a fan for 8 years. I’ve been playing since LOB, and my favorite reviewers throughout time have been General Zorpa, Mark Howard, and most of all Dark Paladin. As such, I will mimic their review style. Now enough about me.

GGG Girl is to Yuma as DMG is to Yugi. Likewise, GGG Girl will ALWAYS be used with GGG Magician, obviously. So what exactly can this cellphone-wielding Hogwarts dropout do? Assuming you have just the Girl and the Magician out on the field, you can Xyz anything from Rank 1 up to 8. Prime examples are:
Gachi Gachi Gantesu
Wind-Up Zenmaines
Utopia
Wind-Up Arsenal Zenmaioh
Inzektor Exa-Beetle

So with all of these options and more (feel free to throw in whatever you want into your own Extra Deck), the GGG magic duo can throw out pretty scary stuff on the field. You are, of course, required to have both weak monsters out on the field at once, but as far as the Xyz business goes, the GGG’s aren’t bad. Obviously they don’t have the swarmability of, say, Inzektors or Wind-Ups, but the ability to change levels like crazy isn’t a bad one. (As for the swarming goes, Magician’s Circle and Mystic Tomato are great causes for the G-G-G-goal.) If you’re apt enough to use GGG Magician, you should use one or two Girls assuming three Magicians. Other than Xyz, the GGG duo can form Sorcerer of Dark Magic if you run that. Also, whilst rather situational, Girl is good to go as Synchro Material over Magician. If you're really pushing for the GGG archetype, you should also add Limit Reverse, if not already 3 CotH.

Oh yeah, and the second effect -- it's a nice tidbit to immediately render an opposing monster worthless. Keep note that more Gagaga monsters wil be released, and if those monsters Xyz with GGG Girl, she stil gets the Zero Zero Call. If not using Magician, you can also drop another GGG's level down to 3 or use two Girls for the same Xyz whilst still getting Zero Zero Call,

Niche Decks: Spellcasters, Gagaga, probably not Xyz Turbo
It is notable, however, unless you are very good at pack drawings, that such decks can get very expensive between the rarities of the good Xyz monsters and GGG Girl herself.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2.75/5
Aesthetics: 4/5 I have no idea what’s Konami thinking with this Gagaga archetype, but something tells me Gagaga Girl is going to strike up a fanbase like Dark Magician Girl before her. I do think, however, that the TCG is quite a bit fastidious in lengthening her skirt.
