Number 104: Masquerade is a card I'm surprised
didn't quite make its way into our Top 10 list.
This is a Rank 4, Spellcaster XYZ Monster, XYZ
Summoned with 3 Level 4 Monsters. It's a Light
attributed, Spellcaster Monster, with 2700 attack
and 1200 defense. During either player's Battle
Phase, when a Monster activates an effect, you can
detach an XYZ Material from this card to negate said
Monsters effect, and if you do, inflict 800 Damage
to your opponent. Being able to use this during
either turn is awesome, and that makes the triple
XYZ requirement a little better too. Also, once a
turn, you can send the top card of your opponent's
Deck to the Graveyard. That's a fun effect, and
pretty cool it's not mandatory. It can help some
Decks, namely things like Dark World or Fire Fist.
This isn't the best XYZ Monster we have, but I'd
play it in Spellcaster for sure, and try it anywhere
else you may have room in your Extra Deck.
Number 104: Masquerade
3 Level 4 monsters
During either player's Battle Phase, when an
opponent's monster effect is activated: You can
detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the
activation, and if you do, inflict 800 damage to
your opponent. Once per turn: You can send the top
card of your opponent's Deck to the Graveyard.
Next up we have one of the over-hundred numbers, in
this case Number 104: Masquerade used by Vector in
the anime. Statwise it has a lot of things going for
it; it is a LIGHT/Spellcaster so there is already
plenty of support which is good and it has 2700 ATK
which is quite high for a Rank 4. The only downer is
the weak 1200 DEF but you can’t have everything.
Now the effects; the first effect allows you to
negate an opponent’s monster’s effect if it
activates in the Battle Phase and deal 800 points of
damage as well. This is quite good and it can be
used in the damage step which is a big plus. The
second effect allows you to send the top card of
your opponent’s deck to the graveyard. I admit I
really like decking out strategies and able to cost
the opponent a card with no cost is really good. Of
course with cards like Dark Armed Dragon and a lot
of cards liking the graveyard this could easily be a
double edged sword.
Overall, great ATK thanks to its Attribute and type
it has plenty of support and it is splashable and
two good effects. It is let down by weak DEF and it
does require 3 monsters to summon which can be
Hey guys today will be doing Number 104:
Masquerade and to be honest this is quite a
depressing card as it is so close to being a really
good card for this format. During either players
battle phase if an effect monster is activated you
can detach a material to negate that effect then
burn your opponent for 800. Keep in mind that as
long as the effect happens in the BP then you can
negate that effect even if your opponent is not
declaring an attack. The second effect is less than
mediocre it could potentially benefit your opponent
so lets not even talk about that. Overall this card
could have been better if it only required to
materials, or even if it had a better effect, but
until then in the trash pile you go.
