Hieratic Dragon of Gebeb continues our week, again a Level 4 Dragon, of the Light attribute, this time with a slightly higher attack at 1800 yet a slightly lower defense of 400.  When this card destroys an opponent's Monster via Battle and sends it to the Graveyard (insert standard Hieratic Dragon text here) but that's not the only effect.  When this card is tributed, (just tributed, not specified as to what or why) you can Special Summon a Hieratic Normal Monster from your Hand or Deck.  Note its attack and defense don't become 0, (although the only one I can think of has 0 attack and defense).  I like this card better than yesterday's and the effect, either effect, is easy enough to pull off in the Deck.  Certainly one of the better Hieratic cards out there.

The next Hieratic monster we will be reviewing is Hieratic Dragon of Gebeb. While not a staple in most Hieratic decks, Gebeb is still a pretty good Hieratic monster with good combos to go with it. When combined with cards like Honest, Shrink, or Forbidden Lance, you can run over your opponent’s bigger monster and summon a level 4 normal dragon monster to Xyz summon a Rank 4 monster.
 
Another nice combo to use with Gebeb is to use Enemy Controller to tribute it and gain control of your opponents monster, special summon a Hieratic normal dragon monster with the same level, and Xyz summon a powerful monster. The nice thing about Gebeb, is that the monster summoned when tributed does not lose its attack and defense like other Hieratic monsters. The bad thing is that it has to be a Hieratic monster so we will have to wait for more normal or Gemini Hieratic monsters to be released before Hieratic Dragon of Gebeb is a viable option for a Hieratic deck.
 
Of course, you still get its special summoning effect when tributed and being a level 4 monster, you can summon it and then tribute it for one of the special summon via tribute monsters. For now, we will have to wait for more Hieratic normal monsters as we currently only have two and one is a Gemini.

Gebeb is kinda like yesterday's card, Nuit, as when it does something, you get to special summon a Normal Dragon-Type monster from your hand, deck or graveyard, and make its ATK and DEF 0. In Gebeb's case, it's when it destroys a monster by battle. Also when Gebeb is tributed in any way, you can special summon 1 Hieratic normal monster from your hand, deck or graveyard. Gebeb can get you out two monsters in one turn if you plan things out right. Also, like Nuit, he workd well with Resonance Device, after you get out a higher level monster to Xyz summon with, and he combos very well with Trials and Tribulation as well. A must for the deck as Gebeb gets you what you need really fast.

When this card is Tributed: Special Summon 1 "Hieratic" Normal Monster from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard."

Well, this guy loves to destroy opposing monsters and add to your field at the same time.Plus, if he himself is tributed, he replaces himself. The sad part is the first effect only summons Normal dragons and the second only summons other Heratic Dragons, but the plus of the second effect is that the new HD has it's normal A & D, unlike the Normal Dragons summoned. Gebeb is meant for field control and does it very well for the theme.

Hi. This month has been super-busy for me and I'm very behind in catching up in my current responsibilities. I have reviews provided for last week if that is of any interest to you. I will still be continuing to provide reviews for this week, but they will not be as in-depth as I usually try to make them to be.
 
So anyway, we're starting with the most forgettable Hieratics and working our way up, last Friday being just a teaser. So, true to my word, I'm going straight to the point with Gebeb. He's cool, but like I said yesterday,  it's not that the effect is hard to get off, but it's the application. The big issue is that you can't Xyz or whatever during the BATTLE PHASE. The other Hieratics are prominent as you can swarm the field with Wattailddragons or something and Xyz to your heart's content. I only like Gebeb over Nuit because Gebeb has the standard Hieratic severance package effect. You can pull out a Luster Dragon and Xyz with Gebeb to make...Utopia, I guess. That is a little bit of an insult to Hieratic potential, though.
Otherwise, you can get out a Hieratic Seal for fodder for Hieratic Seal of Banishment or Hieratic Seal of Reflection, but meh.
Combining Shrink or Honest with Gebeb can make his effect work during your opponent's turn, increasing the chance of survival for your Dragon, but...I wouldn't really use Gebeb at all.
 
Oh yeah, and with a hefty 400 DEF, the only attacks Gebeb will be walling are from Spirit Reaper.
 
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2.65/5
Aesthetics: 3.4/5 Looks appropriate for a brawny, Level 4 hard-hitter. Geb is the Egyptian god of earth (evident in Gebeb's art, contradictory with the Light Attribute but still pretty cool), son of Shu and Tefnut, and the brother of Nut.
 
Philosophy Corner: Forgot to mention this yesterday, but none this week, sorry.
