All right, we looked at the Chaos XYZ variant of Monday's card on Tuesday, now we do that again today, just obviously with the card from yesterday.  The Chaos variant we looked at earlier this week had a much better effect than this card, a better effect if it has its other XYZ counterpart attached, which difficult as it may be to do, actually can be pulled off.  Here I just don't see this card being worth it at all.  This Monster is Rank 5, also with 3000 attack like we saw earlier this week, and 2400 defense.  This is an Earth, Warrior type Monster, XYZ Summoned with three Level 5 Monsters.  Once per turn, this card cannot be destroyed by Battle.  Certainly good, but how many Monsters are going to be able to destroy this guy by Battle anyway?  Probably not very many.  If he has yesterdays card as an XYZ Material, when it destroys an opponent's Monster by Battle, you can remove it from play, and if you do, you inflict Damage to your opponent equal to the attack of that Monster.  Just as I wouldn't play yesterday's card, I wouldn't play this either.
 
Ratings:

Traditional:  1/5 
Advanced:  Headache/5 like wh0a errrr 2.5 
Art:  5/5  Nice picture though, he's got freaking castles on his shoulders, and could clearly be a Machine as opposed to a Warrior with all that armor

CXyz Comics Hero Legend Arthur
EARTH/Warrior/Xyz/Effect/Rank5/3000/2400
3 Level 5 monsters
Once per turn, this card cannot be destroyed by battle. If this card has "Comics Hero King Arthur" as an Xyz Material, it gains this effect.
● When this card destroys a monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; banish the destroyed monster, and if you do, inflict damage to your opponent equal to its original ATK.

After reviewing Comics Hero King Arthur yesterday we now look at its Ranked Up version CXyz Comics Hero Legend Arthur. I really liked Comics Hero King Arthur yesterday and its Ranked Up version is also good. Normally it needs 3 level 5 monsters but it has 3000 ATK and once per turn it can’t be destroyed by battle, though with 3000 ATK and a solid 2400 DEF it’s not going to be easy to be able to destroy in the first place.

Of course being a Ranked Up CXyz it gets a bonus effect if you have the original version attached. First thing it is one of these you have to destroy a monster by battle to use it effects, but unlike other cards with this effect, Legend Arthur has the ATK to pull it off. If you do destroy a monster by battle and it goes to the grave, for 1 material you can banish that monster and inflict damage to your opponent equal to that monster’s original ATK. Again as with King Arthur, really good value and the chance to deal a lot of damage to your opponent.

Overall, another good warrior Xyz with another good value effect, if you are playing Comics Hero King Arthur you will want to play this guy as well.

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced: 4/5

Hey Guys today we're going to be doing CXyz Comics Hero Legend Arthur.
I wish I had more to say, but Legend Arthur seems like a waste of time if you ask me. Don't get me wrong his effect is great, but think about it. If you use him in the CXyz Utopia deck (Only other good Cxyz out there) then you would have to make your monsters dominantly warriors to be able to get his good effect, I mean if you're not into wasting 3 lv 5 monsters on your field for it not to be destroyed by battle....
once. If you do then you are hurting the true ability for your CXyz Utopia deck to shine.... Unless warriors got some new support I'm not aware of that make both of these cards viable then don't waste your time. Overall a great effect, just hurt by the fact that you need it to be in warriors for his ability to shine.
 
Trad: 1/5
Avd: 2/5 (If you can find a way to make him without having to change your deck around go for it)


Philosophical
Psycho

DKMagician Girl brought up a pretty good point in the Simon review. I neglected to take into account how even if I don’t summon him by Ranking-Up Norito, he is nevertheless still immune to all monster effects and is a sturdy 3000 ATK Rank 7. So if I assemble three Level 5 monsters and Xyz Summon Legend Arthur, what do I get? I agree that Legend Arthur wields a hefty 3000 ATK (it’s almost unfair how much of a power-up he gets from King Arthur compared to how much Norito gets going to Simon), but his Continuous Effect doesn’t matter much. It means that Legend Arthur can trade a punch and live against Black Luster Soldier or Grapha the Dragon Lord of Dark World (or any other monster that happens to be at 3000), but it’s not greatly spectacular, since it doesn’t place THAT much of a burden against most Decks.

So that’s what you get if you summon Legend Arthur the old-fashioned way. If you Rank-Up King Arthur, for three times (assuming you haven’t activated King Arthur’s effect) Legend Arthur will banish the monsters he destroys and throw in a little extra damage (not even any monster he battles…just the ones he can actually beats in battle…sigh). So if your opponent has an army of strong monsters (provided they’re under 3000 ATK, and if you had King Arthur stalling, they’d probably have assembled an army anyway), Legend Arthur can go in chopping em down for full 3000 damage (and if they go into Defence Position the next turns, Legend Arthur can still do sizable damage), all the while preventing them from going to the Grave. I have some problems with that scenario though. If they got to the point where they assembled a good “feast” for Legend Arthur, it should not be hard for them to use effects to block or counterattack Legend Arthur, unless you hurt them REALLY bad with the Barian’s Force. Take Dragon Lords for example: Even if they got out a field of Big Eye, Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack, and Master of Blades, and you are lucky enough to summon out of nowhere King Arthur, use Barian’s Force to negate all their effects and summon Legend Arthur to start bashing them 3000 per turn, they could probably summon a second Big Eye (maybe even right the next turn) and steal Legend Arthur. Also, if your opponent does not have “an army of monsters” and is just setting Defence Position monsters against Legend Arthur, if you use Legend Arthur’s effect for this, you’re not doing a spectacular amount of damage. Then you have to start comparing the ATK of the lower-ATK monsters you have out and guessing whether your monsters are good enough to use for Direct Attacking so you can use Legend Arthur’s effect on the monster or if the combined ATK of the enemy monster and your lowest-ATK that can beat the enemy monster will exceed 3000, then you might as well just use your weakest monster to wipe out theirs so that you can use Legend Arthur to Direct Attack… It’s just a mess.

The banishing thing is ok, but if you really want it that much, just use Macro Cosmos. His effect damage mimics Darkblaze Dragon/Flame Wingman; it works well with his high ATK, but is not practical (as described in my last paragraph), especially with how clumsy it is to summon him. It also really does not help that King and Legend Arthur can’t feed off each other’s weaknesses the way Norito and Simon can.

If I could change the effect of this card (and even then it would be only moderate):

This card cannot be destroyed by battle. Your opponent cannot target Warrior-Type monsters for attacks. If this card has "Comics Hero King Arthur" as an Xyz Material, it gains this effect.
● When this card destroys a monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; banish the destroyed monster, and if you do, inflict damage to your opponent equal to its original ATK.

Trad: 1/5

Adv: 1.5/5 (.25 points for trying, and .25 more because I admit he could get dangerous if you get really unlucky but he’s still clumsy to summon, and I’d rather summon Utopia and his own Rank-Ups)

Aesthetics: 3.25/5 The CXyzs are a family of monsters that are upgraded versions of original Xyzs. Also joining them are Number C, which are the same as CXyz except for Numbers. All of them require the Spell Card Rank-Up Magic Barian’s Force to be summoned (except for Number C39: Utopia Ray and Number C32: Shark Drake Veiss – the first two Number C cards that we’ve already reviewed – which you can summon by just putting them over the original card), and as a result, they all have streaks of red on them (except for Utopia Ray and Veiss). All of them are one Rank higher than the original, and (except for Utopia Ray and Veiss) must use their original form in order to gain their effects; the CXyzs' effects (except for Simon the Great Moral Leader's) involve effect damage. Also, if you were going to Xyz Summon them “the old-fashioned way,” you need one more Xyz Material than the original. Their new effect is different yet slightly resembles their old effect, and except for Ray, Veiss, and for some reason Giant Red Hand, they have an additional effect that does not require Xyz Material. In Legend Arthur’s case, his effect to inflict damage is similar to how King Arthur does 500 every time he cheats death, and Legend Arthur has a Continuous Effect to protect him in battle. It’s very interesting how Legend Arthur has aspects of his castle on his shoulder. It’s also intriguing how other than that, he looks a lot like King Arthur, but I don’t like how the sword changed too.

 

Philosophy Corner: I forgot to mention something about the aesthetics of Utopia Ray. After using the effect three times, Utopia Ray has 4000 ATK and an opposing monster will usually have 0 ATK, letting Yuma deal 4000 Battle Damage. This utter loss into instant win is very ridiculous and takes a lot of excitement out of Zexal.
