Well after our Top 10 Countdown from Cosmo Blazer, we shift gears again a bit.  Welcome to XYZ week!  Four of the five Monsters we review this week are Number Cards, but all these cards are worthy of reviews.  We open with the little cousin of Number 93:  Heart-EartH Dragon.  Before I knew we were doing our Top 10 Countdown, it made sense to review this guy following said Dragon.  But anyway, we're looking today at Number 53:  Heart-Earth!  This card is a Dark attributed, FIend-type, Rank 5 XYZ Monster, with 100 attack and defense, who is XYZ Summoned with three Level 5 Monsters.

This Monster, as you may have guessed, works similarly to Number 92.  So, once a turn, when targeted for an attack, Number 53 gains the attack of the attacking Monster.  So it should always be stronger than that Monster during that attack, since this Monster all ready has 100 attack of its own.  Keep in mind it gains attack only to the Monsters original attack however.  If this face up card would be destroyed, it can spare itself, simply by discarding an XYZ Material instead.  Furthermore, when destroyed while it has no XYZ Material, note by a card effect, not by Battle, you can Special Summon Number 92 from your Extra Deck.

You do get to use this as an XYZ Material to Number 92, but it seems to me IF you were going to play Number 92 at all, you would be more interested in XYZ Summoning the Monster itself in its own way.  You can obviously make a Deck to play both, or one or the other.  I think Number 53 is powerful in its own accord, and certainly leaps and bounds easier to Summon than Number 92.  Honestly I don't expect either to see a whole lot of play but I wouldn't fault anyone for trying to put together at least a casual Deck with one or both of these cards.

We are going to be reviewing a number of promo cards this week, but first, we are going to take a look at a “number” card from Cosmo Blazer. Number 53: Heart-eartH takes some resources to bring out with 3 level 5 monsters. Looking at its stats, it looks like a weenie monster. 100 ATK and DEF are just about as week as it gets. That is where its effects come in.
 
First, it will gain the original ATK of a monster that battles it. Not really a good effect in the current Meta. Fire Fist decks obliterate Number 53. Forbidden Lance, Honest, and Spellbook of Power just thumb their nose at it. In addition, you get no boost when you attack so Number 53: Heart-eartH is primarily just a defensive card which does not combo well with today’s aggressive decks. Another disadvantage to the first effect is if you opponent has two monsters on the field, they only have to do is attack with the weaker one first, then kill it with the stronger monster as it says once per turn it gains the ATK. Boo!
 
The second effect of Number 53: Heart-eartH will help to protect it from destruction by detaching a material, giving it three chances to survive. Then when it gets destroyed by a card effect with no material, you can special summon one Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon and make Number 53 one of its materials. That is a nice effect, but your opponent is knows that and will simply work around it.
 
If you are playing a defensive deck that can special summon level 5 monsters like crazy, then Number 53: Heart-eartH would be a good fit. Off hand, I know of none. It is more likely that you will want to use your level 5 monsters for Xyz monsters like Tiras or Adreus. This is because all of the decks that I know of that can mass produce level 5 monsters are offensive in nature, like Hieratic, Inzektor, and Dark World.

A new week, that gives us a new week of cards to review...Xyz cards! Becuase Pojo knows you kids love those wacky Xyz monsters. Up first is Number 53: Heart-eartH....I see what they did there. Heart-eartH is a Rank 5 Xyz, needing 3 level 5 monsters to summon, and is a DARK/Fiend. This is a counterpart to Number 93: Heart-eartH Dragon and comes into play later. Once per turn, if this card is targeted for an attack, it gains the ATK of the attacking monster's original ATK until the end phase. This is good, as it will make your opponent think twice about attacking, unless they have some kind of ATK power gain going. If this face up card would be destroyed, you can detach 1 Xyz material to save this card from destruction. That is good, as it gets you one step closer to getting Heart-eartH Dragon out. When this card is destroyed while it has no Xyz materials on it, you can special summon 1 Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon from your extra deck and attach Number 53: Heart-eartH to it as an Xyz material, it also counts as an Xyz summon. that is pretty good. Cards that get stronger versions of themselves when destroyed is really good. You can even destroy this card yourself while it has no Xyz materials on it to get H.E. Dragon out. The only thing is this is one of those cases where a card like this needs its own deck.

Welcome to another week of card reviews! Today we will cover the younger brother of Number 92 and a card that is actually pretty useful; let’s take a look at Number 53: Heart-eartH
 
Number 53: Heart-eartH
Dark/Fiend/Rank 5
 
3 Level 5 monsters
Once per turn, when this card is targeted for an attack: It gains ATK equal to that attacking monster's original ATK, until the End Phase. If this face-up card on the field would be destroyed, you can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card instead. When this card on the field is destroyed by a card effect while it has no Xyz Materials: You can Special Summon 1 "Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon" from your Extra Deck and attach this card from the Graveyard to it as an Xyz Material. (This Special Summon is treated as an Xyz Summon.)
 
First of all; let’s examine the summoning condition. 3 Level 5’s is quite the hefty cost. The best ways I can think of doing it are:
 
Gadgets w/ Jumbo Drill
Dark Worlds
Chronomallys
Garbage Lord/Cyber Dragon/Star Drawing Rank 5 spam.deck
 
So, getting out 3 level 5s is quite the feet. Is this card worth it? The answer is a big solid…. Kinda. He works like Dark Mist and he gains the attack points of the first monster he battles. Then, if he would die; you can detatch a material instead. If your opponent gets fed up with it and destroys it through Dark Hole or Triple JD eff; you then get to replace it with Number 92.
 
It isn’t that bad at all! However…. There are many ways to exploit this card.
 
1)      Battle
 
So, if you have a Caius and a Dupe Frog on your side of the field and you face up against this, just let Dupe Frog attack first then finish it off with Caius. Simply letting your weaker monster take the hit will take care of the primary effect of this monster. 
 
2)      Protection from card effects 
 
Ya, so it can only protect itself from card effects. If you can exploit the battle option, then you should be fine here. Just don’t waste your dark holes against it. It doesn’t provide an immediate threat whatsoever. Also, since it says Destroy and not specifically anything else; you can easily Dimensional Prison it when it tries to kill one of your monsters.
 
Don’t get me wrong, it is a pretty cool card with a decent effect that can replace itself when destroyed with something even better; the problem lies in protection and actually summoning this monster.
 
Advanced: 2.25
 
I rate it higher than 92 simply because it can replace itself with 92 when destroyed.
 
Traditional: 1.0
 
I wouldn’t even bother.

Today we are looking at:  Number 53: Heart-eartH

“3 Level 5 monsters
Once per turn, when this card is targeted for an attack: It gains ATK equal to that attacking monster's original ATK, until the End Phase. If this face-up card on the field would be destroyed, you can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card instead. When this card on the field is destroyed by a card effect while it has no Xyz Materials: You can Special Summon 1 "Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon" from your Extra Deck and attach this card from the Graveyard to it as a Xyz Material. (This Special Summon is treated as a Xyz Summon.)”

This card has bunch of cool effects mashed into a small hard to kill body, and he also happens to be the easiest way to bring out Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon.

If you manage to get 3 level 5 monsters on the field (Every one and their mother is running some way to stop you from summoning, and Solemn Warning is a thing right now.) your opponent is going to have a bad day. Once this guy hits the field he is always going to have 100 more attack points than whatever he battles, so you can’t attack it. You pretty well have to use an effect to bounce/remove him, or just keep hurling destruction at him until he finally dies. And then, when he actually dies, he spits out Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon. Obviously you’re not going to have much luck running him unless you build a deck around him, but in his own deck he is pretty obnoxious. Heck, he could probably even win a local tournament just by the surprise factor alone.

That being said with the current state of the game you will have to fight pretty hard to get him on the field, and hope your opponent doesn’t have answer his summon. But, if you can pull all of this off you have a great shot at winning.

I like him, but you’re not going to see him in any tier 1 events anytime soon. (Unless I am missing something)

Today's Card of the Day review is Number 53: Heart-Earth, an Ultra/Ultimate Rare card from the Cosmo Blazer set and is the card that will most likely lead into Xyz Summoning Number 92: Heart-Earth Dragon.

We will begin by mentioning that this card is asking for a hefty investment to Xyz Summon: 3 Level 5 monsters. This can be done with a combination of Cyber Dragon, Garbage Ogre/Garbage Lord, Star Drawing, and a ton of other LV5 cards.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), this is easier to do when compared to Number 92. Despite if you are aiming to summon Number 92 or not, let's speak about its effect, posted below.

"Once per turn, when this card is targeted for an attack: It gains ATK equal to that attacking monster's original ATK, until the End Phase. If this face-up card on the field would be destroyed, you can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card instead. When this card on the field is destroyed by a card effect while it has no Xyz Materials: You can Special Summon 1 "Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon" from your Extra Deck and attach this card from the Graveyard to it as an Xyz Material. (This Special Summon is treated as an Xyz Summon.)"

This card only has 100 ATK and 100 DEF so this card's value is literally on the effects of this monster. Fortunately, it can hold its own provided its effect is still activated.

When attacked, this card can beat almost any monster via battle. The only reason why I said "almost" is because it only gains the original ATK. Sorry to disappoint you but Tragoedia gets around that since its original ATK is 0. The Calculator can easily beat it in battle and Card Trooper will have little issues running it over so it is best to add some defense just in case.

However, it may not be necessary. Number 53 also comes in with built-in destruction prevention, which is also nice. Even nicer, the destruction prevention is universal. If it gets destroyed by battle, detach an Xyz Material and it will live. If it gets destroyed by card effect, same thing. Since this is not once per turn, it does make for a pretty decent wall. Keep in mind that you are still taking Battle Damage regardless.

The last effect is what going to give you Number 92. If there is no Xyz Material on this card and it gets destroyed by a card effect, you can bring out Number 92 successfully with an Xyz Material given to it. Considering that you have managed to keep Number 53 alive by taking blows by card effects and your opponent can't reliably beat it in battle, that is very well possible. Even better, you can trigger it by destroying Number 53 yourself so you don't need to wait for your opponent's Dark Hole or Torrential Tribute.

There is one more obvious weakness to consider: This card is pretty good for defensive measures. However, this card is outright terrible for offense. Since its 1st effect only triggers when attacked, it is more-or-less a sitting down that can be ignored until you are ready to deal with it by negating its effect and then running over the frail 100 ATK monster.

Overall, this card is not outright terrible but it is not exactly worth the trouble bringing it out considering how much viable effect negation is currently available within this game. If you are going to try and play Number 53/Number 92, make sure you bring suitable protection because they will need it. Compulsory Evacuation Device will make this and Number 92 cry. It is a fun casual card to play and if you are into that, then I certainly recommend giving it a spin.

Advanced Format: 1.5/5 (Its a nuisance at best, a minor issue at the worst. You can get better competitive value out of 3 Level 5 monsters than this.)
Traditional Format: 1/5 (It's not competitive there. Sorry.)

Number 53: Heart-eartH
Dark/Fiend/Xyz/Effect/Rank 5/100/100
3 Level 5 monsters

Once per turn, when this card is targeted for an attack: It gains ATK equal to that attacking monster's original ATK, until the End Phase. If this face-up card on the field would be destroyed, you can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card instead. When this card on the field is destroyed by a card effect while it has no Xyz Materials: You can Special Summon 1 "Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon" from your Extra Deck and attach this card from the Graveyard to it as an Xyz Material. (This Special Summon is treated as an Xyz Summon.)
This week we are looking at some Anime/Manga Xyz monsters. First off is one of Dr. Faker’s Xyz monsters Number 53: Heart-eartH. We looked at Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon earlier so what’s its little brother like. Not great to be honest, effect number 1, is way too easy for the opponent to take advantage of, have two monster and attack with the weaker one first. Its protection effect is also a problem for one thing it only works when it’s face up which is not a good thing and it only prevents it from being destroyed anything else and it’s gone. The final effect allows you to special summon Number 92: Heart-eartH Dragon" but only if this card is destroyed by your opponent, and it’s a card effect and if it hand no materials, so if this card is face dwon and destroyed by Dark Hole, then you get nothing.
Overall 3 poor effects combined with a high summoning cost, and terrible  ATK and DEF for a Rank 5 and you have a very poor card.

Traditional: 1/5
