All right, we've got a fun week, and good things on the horizon! We open this week with an unreviewed card, have two Jump promos, and Thursday we start our Top 10 Countdown for Judgement of the Light, with its pending release! Sorciere de Fleur kicks things off, I believe she was a card in the deck of that French woman from the third season of 5D's. She is a Level 8, Dark attributed, Spellcaster with a beautiful 2900 attack but a troublesome 0 defense. When this card is Normal or Special Summoned, you can Special Summon a Monster from your opponent's Graveyard. Said Monster cannot attack your opponent directly, and is destroyed during the End Phase. This is great...either it doesn't matter, cause you're likely attacking for the win, it doesn't matter cause you're going to XYZ or Synchro Summon, or it doesn't matter because you're going to Tribute for it. If you're playing Prophecy and/or Spellcasters, you want to run at least one.

Traditional: 2.75/5
Advanced: 3.75/5

Sorciere de Fleur

When this card is Normal or Special Summoned, select 1 monster in your opponent's Graveyard. Special Summon that monster to your side of the field. It cannot attack your opponent directly, and is destroyed during the End Phase of this turn. The effect of "Sorciere de Fleur" can only be activated once per turn.

Before we start looking at the top 10 from Judgment of the Light, we are looking at some Random Promos. First off is Sorciere de Fleur, a game promo for Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Over the Nexus back in 2011, which is kinda apt given the news of a new 3DS ZeXal game . Anyways, Sorciere de Fleur is a level 8 Dark Spellcaster (which is good) with 2900 ATK (very good) and 0 DEF (terrible).

Its effect meanwhile is alright, one the plus side it works whether you have Normal or Special summoned it, and since Spellcasters do have a couple of easy ways of special summoning. Also it allows you to special summon an opponent’s monster. However the fact that it can’t attack directly and it will die during the End Phase. To be honest this card wasn’t much cop when it was released 2 years ago and these days Spellcasters are getting better and stronger.

Overall, an alright card with good ATK, Terrible DEF and a limiting effect, if you want to special summon a monster from the opponent’s grave, just play Monster Reborn.
Traditional: 1/5

Psycho

There are four Fleur monsters, each displayed by Sherry LeBlanc in the anime. This is the Spellcaster; there’s also a Level 8 Warrior Synchro that says you must use the Level 2 Machine Tuner (you can use Quickdraw Synchron instead). I’ll get to Necro Fleur later, but the issue is that there are no cards that unite the Fleurs together, so in essence all four of them have nothing in common. The Tuner and the Synchro are together, and Sorcière and Necro are together, and that’s it. All of these cards were promo cards in Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's video games.
 
Spellbook of Judgment summons out of Deck, Magical Dimension summons out of hand, Spellbook of Life is out of Grave. Since she’s a high-Level Dark Spellcaster, Fool, Reaper, and Temperance of Prophecy can all summon her from the Deck easy, but you need a lot of Spellbook investment. Necro Fleur is a weak Plant that, when destroyed with an effect, gets out Sorcière from the Deck. 2900 ATK is pretty powerful, especially considering how easy it is to summon Spellcasters. 0 DEF is… literally non-existent. When she gets summoned (except Flip Summon, which you usually don’t need to worry about), you get to steal a monster right out of your opponent’s Graveyard! Granted, it can’t do a Direct Attack and you have to return it at the turn’s end, but an extra pair of hands never hurts (unless it eats up the rest of your Monster Card Zones and you wanted to summon something else). A free monster is very versatile: high ATK, good effect, Synchro/Xyz Material.
 
I’ve played against a Deck that used Sorcière des Fleurs before, and I think I beat it. After looking her over, I think the best strategy to use the timeflower witch is to try to summon out a bunch of Necro Fleurs at once, and then use a mass destruction card like Black Rose Dragon, Darklight, Needle Ceiling, Torrential Tribute, etc. so long it destroys your Necro Fleurs (maybe it can be easier to give control of the Necro Fleurs to your opponent but that seems like it would be more trouble). This will let you summon a bunch of Sorcière des Fleurs at once. What makes Necro Fleur cool is that if you use Fire King Avatar Yaksha, you can destroy it in the hand; Chain Destruction can destroy it in the deck and the hand (it works a lot like Yubel). In the end, Direct Attacks from three Sorcière des Fleurs will win the game, and you get to steal an opponent’s monster to help you. I admit that her lack of DEF means she can be slain by Tsukoyomi, Maestroke the Symphony Djinn, or a freshly drawn Book of Moon, but if you don’t get the OTK with a triplet of 2900 ATK monsters, you can still get ahead with some great Rank 8 Xyz power. Zombiestein would probably be the most powerful choice, packing 4500 ATK and a negation effect for added protection. Queen of the Night is a nice Plant monster, but she requires three Level 8 monsters and that’s usually not worth it. Coach King Giantrainer also requires three Xyz Material, but that means you get to draw three cards, so that’s usually worth it. The one I’m most excited about is Felgrand the Divine Dragon Knight. He’s coming out in the next Booster Pack, November 8, and has a Quick Effect that lets you protect any monster from card effects, meaning you get to keep the monster you stole from the Graveyard forever. My final tip is that if you really want to, you can also use Forbidden Dress on the stolen monster to get away with having to give it back.
 
She is a strong Spellcaster with a cute effect. In any Spellcaster Deck she’s worth a thought, but in heavy combo Decks like Prophecy or Dark Magician usually you find you don’t have enough room and there aren’t a lot of other kinds of Spellcaster Decks. With her support from Necro Fleur, she can also be splashed into some Fire Decks, but she is used best when you capitalize on her.
 
Trad: 2.75/5 (admittedly she’s more powerful and easier to summon than Dark Magician of Chaos)
Adv: 3/5
Aesthetics: 2/5 Oh my goodness, they messed up the name horribly. “Sorcière” means a witch/sorceress. De is a particle indicating location and “fleur” is flower. In French, that comes out awkwardly as “Witch of Flower” or “Witch from Flower.” Please do me a favor and use plurals and call her Sorcière des Fleurs, which is “Witch of the Flowers.” They would’ve been better off just actually putting it into English instead of being all fancy, unless the gist of the original name is supposed to be just Flower Witch. That said, she does look very pretty the way her robes and hair sway in the wind.
 
Philosophy Corner: None for this week, sorry.
