Continuing our Top 10 Countdown from Cosmo Blazer,
we look at some more support for the Fire Fist
Archtype in Fire Form Tenki, which comes in at #5.
Don't get me wrong, this is a sweet, and powerful
Magic card, but there isn't a whole lot to say.
When activated, you can add a Level 4 or lower
Beast-Warrior type Monster from your Deck to your
Hand. Secondly, all Beast-Warriors you control gain
100 attack, and you can only activate one Tenki per
turn. The Monster retrieval is the best ability
here, and the 100 attack boost seems negligible (it
is) but in combination with other Fire Formation
cards, it works well.
Welcome to week two of the top 10 countdown of the
best cards from Cosmic Blazar! Today we will be
looking at one of the best common cards we have
received in a long time and provides consistency to
beast-warrior decks everywhere; let’s take a look at
Fire Formation – Tenki!
Fire Formation – Tenki
Continuous Spell Card
When this card is activated; You can add 1 Level 4
or lower Beast-Warrior monster from your deck to
your hand. All Beast-Warrior-Type monsters you
control gain 100 ATK. You can only activate 1 “Fire
Formation – Tenki” per turn.
Why are the fire fist powerful? It isn’t just Bear
or Gorilla; nor it is just the powerful combos of
Chicken or Spirit. Tiger King’s revival and effect
negation doesn’t push it over the type by itself.
The reason why the Fire – Fist are so powerful is
because they have access to 3 Reinforcement of the
Army for beast-warriors that in addition to
searching out the Fire Fist monsters; allows them to
utilize the spell after it’s been played.
We have seen how powerful searching can be; with
cards like Atlantean Dragoons; Snoww, Stratos (which
inspired an emergency ban-list), Inzektor Centipede,
and so much more. But Tenki is different because it
doesn’t just search for your Fire-Fist monsters; but
those fire-fist monsters then use Tenki as fuel to
gain advantage by either destroying a card or
summoning something else to which you can xyz
summon. Heck, you can use it to search Bear to
destroy something and let Bear deal damage to search
out… another Tenki.
A searcher for a searcher for a searcher? Search-Ception?
(Yes. I went there).
Let’s also not forget the 100 point boost; which is
very useful. It can get Bear, Gorilla, Dragon, or
Tiger King get over threats, it also created the
Vorse Raider combo. Some stun versions of Fire-Fist
can run Vorse Raider alongside Tenki to abuse Deck
Devistation Virus to wipe out your opponent’s
resources. Wind-ups, Geargia and Altanteans lose
their main combo pieces, Rabbit loses their win
condition, and basically any deck relying on weak
monsters to win can be destroyed by a two-card combo
of Tenki and Deck Dev; as Tenki will boost Vorse
Raider up to 2000 attack points.
So yes, it’s the reason why Fire-Fists are playable;
but let’s not forget that Tenki is NOT just for
Fire-Fists; it’s for all beast-warriors. Some
All of a sudden, some older decks become incredibly
more consistent with Tenki in their Arsenal; namely
T.G. and Glad Beast (Yes they have Ground as a
generic searcher; but the extra 100 points can be
quite benefital). I personally have been messing
around with a T.G. Stun build using Wind-Up Rabbit;
which is extremely consistent thanks to Tenki.
A generic searcher that has as much versatility as
Reinforcement of the Army; separating it from the
likes of Fossil Dig. Simply an amazing card with
Decent; though I don’t know how effective
Beast-Warriors are here.
Again, I love the design of the Fire Fist,
especially in a design like this!
Pojo’s rank: 5th
we are looking at number 5 in our Cosmo Blazer top
10 countdown: Fire Formation – Tenki
“When this card is activated:
You can add 1 Level 4 or lower Beast-Warrior-Type
monster from your Deck to your hand. All
Beast-Warrior-Type monsters you control gain 100
ATK. You can only activate 1 "Fire Formation - Tenki"
Fire Formation – Tenki (Tenki)
card is really cool card, it not only provides a
level of search power we haven’t really seen
implemented this well since Six Samurai, it also
provides a solid search for any number of other
archetypes. The little attack boost is nice too,
though not entirely needed. (For my review I am
going to focus mainly on the search effect.)
Based on the name alone you
might say Tenki was mainly intended for the Fire
Fist. But don’t forget it lets you search for ANY
level 4 or lower beast-warrior type monster. This
opens the floodgates and allows you to use it in
anything that runs at least a few beast-warrior
monster. This includes Fire Fist (of course),
Consteller, T.G., and even Gladiator beasts. (Maybe
we will even see a new Gladiator variant at YCS
Miami?) I love toolbox decks, and Tenki helps make
some weird ones more feasible.
The main caveat to playing
Tenki is that it remains on the field after it
resolves, this prevents you from using cards like
Gorz the Emmisary of Darkness that require an empty
field. On the flipside we have the fact that it
remains on the field after it resolves, allowing you
to make some unique tech choices in your deck. (Anteatereatingant,
and Storm pop to mind)
Overall I really like this card and I hope that
Konami keeps making cards like this in the future
for other archetypes.
Okay today we have a card that
has been seeing a lot of play. It is a card that can
be used in many different decks and will only get
better over time.So here is #5 card on this Cosmo Blazer Top
Now first off this card is very
versatile.It can search out ANY level 4 or lower Beast
warrior type monster to your hand from your deck.This means you can use it obvious decks such
as Fire Fists and eventually in Fire Kings.It probably would fit best in those decks but
it can also be used in Gladiator Beast, X-saber, and
T.G decks.This card is also an automatic +1 and can
give your Beast-warrior type monsters a small attack
am surprised that this card wasn’t made to only work
with Fire Fist monsters.There aren’t many continuous spell cards that
are used in this game right now but this card is
definitely worth using.
I don’t really suggest that
this card be used outside of Fire Fist and Fire King
decks, but it is still a cool card to try out in
-There isn’t really anything
bad to say about this card.It is very versatile and is an automatic +1
right off of activation.If you’re running Fire Fists, I would
definitely suggest using multiple copies of this
is also a fun card to try in other decks as well.
-I’m not sure if this card
would be good in this format or not but it could be
-Tenki’s art is okay but most
of the Fire Fist cards have better artwork than this
Fire Formation Tenki
When this card is activated: You can add 1 Level 4
or lower Beast-Warrior-Type monster from your Deck
to your hand. All Beast-Warrior-Type monsters you
control gain 100 ATK. You can only activate 1 "Fire
Formation - Tenki" per turn.
Number 5 on our countdown of the Top 10 cards from
Cosmo Blazer is Fire Formation – Tenki. Fire
Formation – Tenki is a Continuous Spell Card with
two effects, the first effect only happens when you
activate the card, which isn’t a thing that you
usually see with Continuous Spells, and it happens
to be the Beast-Warrior version of Reinforcements of
the Army, which is always a good effect. The second
continuous effect gives all Beast-Warrior-Type
monsters you control an extra 100 ATK. This effect
isn’t much; 100 ATK is a bit too low for a boost, if
it was an effect similar to The A-Forces then it
would be better.
Overall Fire Formation – Tenki is a great card for
Beast-Warrior decks. The ATK gain is weak but that’s
not the reason people will play this card.
Had this at #4 on his list
Today's card is well known as the backbone of the
Fire Formation deck. Tenki is the Reinforcements of
the Army for Beast-Warriors, as it lets you get a
level 4 or lower Beast-Warrior from your deck to
your hand. Also, all Beast-Warriors you control gain
100 ATK, and you can only activate one Tenki per
turn. The reason this card is so good is that it
doesn't fit in just Fire Fist, but also Gladiator
Beasts and T.G. decks as well. The 100 ATK boost is
meh, but hey, all you may need sometimes is a little
extra muscle to solve a problem. I would rate this
card a little higher, but it is a Continuous Spell
card and an easy target for Mystical Space Typhoons
and Heavy Storm. You like Beast-Warriors, then
you'll love this card.
