Tuesday

Well we have a theme week, specifically of the Evo nature...opening things is Evoltile Westlo.  As you may or may not know, or at least will discover the rest of the week, this family of Monsters likes to Special Summon one another, and when done, the respective Monster gains an effect or effects.  In this case, you can Special Summon another Monster of the family when Westlo is Flipped.  A bit slow, and odd for a Special Summon to happen, but the 1900 defense makes this a nice set at the very least.  It's not the most exciting of these Monsters, but it's a necessary one.

Ratings:

Traditional:  1.5/5
Advanced:     3/5
Art:  4/5

We are reviewing some of the monsters from one of the new archetypes this week. The Evol theme. Evol’s can be a pretty powerful deck type because of their ability’s to make powerful Xyz Evolzar monsters. Currently we have Laggia and Dollka with more to come. Today’s card is the catalyst for making Evolsaurs come alive. With a pretty beefy 1900 defense, Evoltile Westlo can special summon any Evolsaur from your deck and sense Evolsaurs effects activate when they are special summoned, you get their effects right away.
 
Evolsaur monsters work much like Gladiator Beasts in that they have a tool box of monsters they can special summon depending on what effect they need. Evolsaurs can blow up spells and traps, search out other monsters, add defense, and summon from the graveyard. If you have an Evolsaur in the graveyard, use Westlo to special summon Evolsaur Vulcano and Vulcano’s effect to special summon the Evolsaur in your graveyard and get its effect. Then Xyz into Evolzar Laggia.
 
Evoltile Westlo is a Reptile so you can use Offering to the Snake Deity with it. The Evolzar Xyz monsters alone make Evol’s a viable deck type. As we get more pieces to the puzzle with each new set, we could see this archetype in the top tiers and Evoltile Westlo will be a key factor. Having to set Westlo is a disadvantage as most decks today are aggressive and a set card becomes a shooting duck, but it could be well worth the wait.
 
Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5

The rest of the week is dedicated the Evolving archtype. First up, Evoltile Westlo. He stand is as a level 3, Fire/Reptile with 700 ATK and 1900 DEF. Its flip effect is special summon 1 Evolsaur monster from your deck. 700 ATK, meh....but 1900 DEF can hold up to most of the usual suspects running around in most decks. Westlo is mainly used to get Evolsaur Vulcano to use Vulcano's effect to get another Evolsaur, and Xyz into what you want/need. Even if Westlo get destroyed by battle, you get another monster out. A good card for the archtype.

Today we have a very interesting card for a new archetype, Evol.
Evoltile Westlo
Reptile/ Fire/ Lv 3/ ATK 700/ 1900 DEF
FLIP: Special Summon 1 "Evolsaur" monster from your Deck.
 
This card has a very simple effect, flip and search. It is easy to follow and the search criterion has minimal restrictions (usually Evolsaur Vulcano). This effect is great for getting another monster to use as xyz fodder or synchro fodder if you have a tuner. The defense of this card leaves it standing at a very good position. In most decks, most cards can’t run over it that easily without having to synchro/xyz/tribute summon. Popular cards like Thunderking Raioh are forced to have a staring with Westlo. With situations like that it can leave you with a wall that is a perfect target for Offering to the Snake Diety.

Pros: Searchable via Sangan, Self-replacing, Good defense stats for today’s meta.
Cons: Although it has a good effect for its archetype, it is slightly hindered only due to the amount of options available.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 4/5 (Evol decks only)

Tuesday:

Evoltile Westlo
Lv. 3/FIRE/Reptile/700A/1900D
"FLIP: Special Summon 1 "Evolsaur" monster from your Deck."

A new archetype this week: Evolsaurs. The basic theme so far is monsters that gain effects by being special summoned from the deck. Unlike Gladiator Beasts, however, they don't require you to attack with one monster and return it to the deck to bring out the new monster. So far, there's little to the archetype, but give it another set or two to see the full benefits of this deck, and we might have a decent theme deck on our hands.

EW is the linch-pin of the deck, helping you to get out your Evolsaurs. With a pleasantly high DEF, this guy is likely to stick around for awhile. Since cards that destroy facedown monsters don't get a lot of use these days, flip effect monsters are fairly safe to use. You'll definately want three of him in your deck, but make sure to watch out in case Nobleman of Crossout makes a return.

Traditional: 2.75
Advanced: 3.25
