It's a new week, and I'd like to open on a happy note, by welcoming back fellow CotD reviewer Philosophical Psycho! He's a great friend of mine, and I'm happy to have him back! Gogogo Gigas is an interesting enough Monster.  We have a Level 4, Earth attributed, Rock Monster, with no value as an attacker with 0 attack but a very handy 2200 defense.
 
While this card is in the Graveyard, if you Special Summoned a Gogogo Monster this turn, except during the Damage Step, you can Special Summon this card from your Graveyard in face-up Defense position.  Obviously a plus with the big fat 0 attack.  The turn you use this effect, you lose your Battle Phase, which makes the effect about worthless.  However, if you could do this during your opponent's turn, you might have something.

Today's Card of the Day Review is Gogogo Gigas, a Rare from the Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy booster set.

This Level 4 Rock-Type EARTH Attribute monster has 0 ATK but a strong 2200 DEF, capable of taking some attacks. However, its effect can be pretty useful.

"While this card is in your Graveyard, if you Special Summon a "Gogogo" monster(s) (except during the Damage Step): You can Special Summon this card from your Graveyard in face-up Defense Position. You cannot conduct your Battle Phase the turn you activate this effect. You can only use the effect of "Gogogo Gigas" once per turn."

Basically, if you drop this in your Graveyard, you can call for it whenever you Special Summon a Gogogo monster. Getting it into the Graveyard is not difficult with Foolish Burial, Rock Bombardment, and Catapult Zone since it is a Rock-type monster.

Once you get it in there, the fun starts. You can play Gogogo Giant and bring back a Gogogo Ghost which allows you to bring back Gogogo Golem and, once you get Golem, you can SS Gogogo Gigas via its own effect, giving you a chain of 4 total Level 4 monsters while giving up your Battle Phase. This will allow you to Xyz Summon monsters like Vylon Disigma and Number 16: Shock Master with relative ease.

All-in-all, it is another card for the Gogogo archetype that helps keeps the Rank 4 Xyz Summoning going without any stops. Unfortunately, the drawback of using your Battle Phase actually hurts pretty badly but it is another target to bring back with Gogogo Giant so it's something right there.

I would personally use 1 for the deck if I were to give this deck a try.

Traditional Format: 1/5 (It's not capable of being in that format.)
Advanced Format: 2/5 (If it wasn't for the Battle Phase loss, it would be pretty darn good. This is the case of Konami balancing a card too much for its own good. Even without the Battle Phase restriction, it wouldn't be broken.)

We continue looking at more cards from Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy, first up is Gogogo Gigas. Gogogo Gigas is a very good addition to the Gogogo series, since he is special summoned when a Gogogo monster is special summoned and barring Gogogo Golem they all have special summoning effects, resulting in easy Rank 4 Xyz monsters. Of course there is a down side, and it’s a big one, if you use this effect you skip your Battle Phase, which really hampers his usefulness, but Gigas does have 2200 DEF which for a Level 4 is very good.

Overall a good addition to the Gogogo Series, yes you skip your Battle Phase but his high DEF and being able to special summon himself from the graveyard to help soften the blow.

Philosophical
Psycho

Hello everyone. It is me, the PhilosophicalPsycho. The first card I reviewed was Gagaga Girl on February 27, 2012. I did reviews for about a year, then I took about a half-year break because I was having some family problems. But I'm back now, and I'm back for good. Pleased to make your acquaintance.

Now, I duel a lot. I've seen some Gogogo Decks here and there, so let me go over the basics with you. There are currently four Gogogo cards, all of them Level 4 monsters:
Golem: simple monster with protection effect
Giant: Normal Summon this and summon any Gogogo from your Grave
Ghost: Special Summon this and summon Golem from your Grave, once per turn
Gigas: Special Summon any Gogogo and summon this from your Grave, once per turn

All of them are Earth Rock, except for Ghost, which is a Dark Zombie. As you can see from my descriptions, most of them involve Graveyard revival. Gogogo players tend to use Book of Life, Zombie Master, and other Zombie support in order to make Ghost's effect as easy as possible. These players also tend to run Zombie World to turn all monsters in the Graveyard into Zombies, presumably to give their Zombie support cards more variety. Also, they may use Rock support cards such as Koa'ki Meiru, considering three of the Gogogo monsters are Rocks. Rocks also have a lot of options I'm not saying this is a necessarily good or bad strategy; it's just what people do.

Now, Gogogo Gigasu. 2200 DEF is pretty beefy and it's a good monster to play if you're going first...if you have no better plays. A good Gogogo player could probably summon Shock Master on the first turn, at the rate the deck can summon Level 4 monsters. Gigas is an ok addition to the Gogogo family. It would not be hard to use its effect at all, but the fact that it stops you from attacking is a tremendous setback from what is supposed to be an offensively-paced deck. Maybe you can stack it with other cards that stop your Battle Phase, like Cardcar D, to make it less of an issue. My best recommendation is to use a Trap Card to summon it during your opponent's End Phase, good examples being Pinpoint Guard and Call of the Haunted, so that you can use it to Xyz (or maybe even Synchro) next turn.

Trad: 1.2/5 (actually, it might be useful to have a card that can summon Shock Master quickly, although I would think it's clumsy)
Advanced: 1.5/5 (if you're making a Gogogo Deck and you're running low on space, don't feel compelled to keep this guy)
Aesthetics: 3.1/5 This guy just looks like a police officer. It's shaking its left fist in the air in anger and is holding out its right palm as if to say, "Halt!"

RIddle: Riddle: I want to go home, but there's someone in a mask holding something that makes me not want to go in. What am I doing with my life? Answer on Friday.
