Baneful

After all of the years making really corny names for cards, why stop now?

 

Translation is often funny.  Anticipated releases from OCG have really stiff rough names like "Bad-Strong-Monster-Man" and then come out with silly puns as their actual name in English.  Language differences I guess.

 

Beautunaful Princess

 

A Fish version of Madolche Anjelly, and the fact that it banishes itself both prevents abuse whilst supporting the Banish-Fish archetype that many of us have forgotten about.

 

Possible targets:

 

Gishki Abyss – BP could add speed to this archetype

 

Mermail Abysspike and Abyssturge – While they are only two targets for the deck, they get their effects on Special Summons, so BP could work.

 

WindUp Shark – Better summoned from the hand, thouh.

 

There are lots of other Fish cards like Abyssal Kingshark, Royal Swamp Eel and the Nimble series, but they suck, so BP won't bring them very far.

 

Assessments

 

Power – 3/5 – Has balanced effects and brings out a Fish monster.  Its targets however, aren't so powerful, so this score takes a dive.

 

Versatility – 3/5 – Any searcher with an ignition search effect will score high.  You can bring out whatever fish you want for the situation.  Again, though, lack of target means lack of options.

 

Accessibility – 4/5 ; It has fair restrictions such as "once per turn" and the inability to search itself.  But these aren't very much imposing.

 

Card Advantage – 3/5 ; Largely a 1-for-1 that doesn't indirectly fuel any other card advantage.

 

Speed – 4/5 ; Activates effect immediately on Summon (either Normal or Special).  Enough said.

 

Ratings

 

Traditional – 2/5 ; It brings out Fishborg...  Otherwise, meh.


Advanced – 3.5/5 ; A strong searcher that will have to wait for strong options.


Mechanic Design – 4/5 ; This card is fair and balanced (no FoxNews pun intended).  Its a fast capable searcher with three restrictions to prevent abuse.

 

Artwork – 3/5 ; Reminds me of the PC game Freddie the Fish in the 90's.  And of course, the whole "princess" and "beauty" obsession gaming companies have.  Good contrasting color choices, though.

Verdict

 

This card is like Lonefire Blossom before most of the big Plant support came out.

T-REX

Beautunaful Princess

This is a Level 1 Fish with 0 ATK and DEF who’s effect activates whenever it is either Normal or Special Summoned, something that’s quite useful effect-wise as you know that you are always going to get it’s effect.

 

This opens up plays with One for One, Mother Grizzly, Superancient Deepsea King Coelacanth, Shark Cruiser, Fishborg monsters and Where Arf Thou? Among others.

You could use Beautunaful Princess in Mermails to Summon even quicker Mermail Abyssturge or Mermail Abysspike, in Gishki’s to Summon Gishki Abyss or as a support card in Sharks.

 

Because this cards effect is a Trigger effect, this means that it’s effect is actually quite difficult to stop, so common cards such as Fiendish Chain, Skill Drain and Breakthrough Skill can do simply nothing to prevent this cards effect from resolving… Effect Veiler also can do nothing to prevent it as Beautunaful Princess is Banished as cost.

 

Traditional: 1. Potentially this card could rate higher since it can search out a potentially viable target in Fishborg Blaster.

 

Advanced: 3. Myself I haven’t faced this in competitive play, however it does seem to present several possibilities for numerous Decks, all of which could very well be extremely beneficial.

Beautunaful Princess
 
It’s Twofer Thursday to wrap up this week and one of the two cards we have today is Beautunaful Princess.

Statwise it is a WATER/Fish which is want you want with 0 ATK and DEF but it is a level 1 and it is designed not to stay on the field, so it really doesn’t matter.

Effectwise, it has a nice trigger effect. When this card is summoned you can banish this card to get a Level 4 or lower Fish from your Deck barring another one of these. Summoning a monster from the deck is always good and you aren’t giving up anything major just a weak level 1 monster. Since this is activates when special summoned you can use cards like One For One to get this out and use its effect. Of course this is only useful if you play a lot of Fish monsters and there aren’t any major fish archetypes for this to play off.

Overall, if you play a lot of fish monsters this card is a must, if not there are other cards that card Special Summon WATER monsters that would be more useful.

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Special Summon effect off of Beautunaful Princess Normal or Special Summon immediately makes this card good. Though only once per turn, this can be used over and over as long as you have ways to summon it again. One For One or Water Hazard to bring out Beautunaful Princess, banish her for a Fish level 4 or below from your deck. Deck thinning good, even if it's only one monster. Water decks will be running Fish-types along their other WATER attribute monsters, and there are five Mermail monsters able to be brought out by this card. Gishki decks get a boost to help with their consistency with this card. The biggest upside to this card is because of its effect resolves after it leaves the field will protect it from Effect Veiler and Skill Drain.
 
Beautunaful Princess could be better if it could target any level 4 or lower WATER monster, but it still isn't a bad monster. There's some potential in it if you are willing to go fishing.

Double-time today folks. Beautunaful princess(god I hate that name, I get tongue-tied saying it) basically screams one deck: Mermails. You summon it to the field and you can immediately banish it due to it being a trigger effect to special summon a fish-type out of your deck. This of course means you're going after Pike or Turge which sets up further plays. Now the cool thing is that Princess works when special summoned meaning it combo's really well with One-For-One to set up a potentially immediate Bahamut Shark play, and thats nothing to scoff at. Being able to put a Pike in defense in an aggressive format isn't bad either for the sake of LP protection(DYK: LP is now an official yugioh term?)

Traditional 1.25/5

Advanced 2.25/5 - Good, but it's not perfect. I know people who have run these in mermails to modest success but not enough to really warrant changing up the deck to accommodate it but if you like to go against the grain, this is definitely something fun to try out!

Beautunaful Princess (geez, what a mouthful) is a card that has applications, but is overall generally outclassed. The card’s main use would be in Mermail, where she can, upon summon, off herself to summon a Pike from your Deck. This would be great if it weren’t from the fact that the Deck already has Mermail Abyssteus, which is overall superior and has somehow (unlike in the OCG) avoided the TCG’s banlist several times. Along with the Limiting of Abyssgunde causing the Deck to shy away from combos involving Abysspike and Abyssturge, there really just isn’t much of a place for the fish in that Deck, as there are much better options.
 
The card doesn’t really have many applications in other Decks, as Mermail is the only commonly seen Deck that utilizes Fish monsters. Overall, this was a card that was seen as having potential but more or less got screwed over by Konami hitting Abyssgunde instead of Abyssteus.
 
Traditional: 1/5

Soldier

We have a doubleheader for you guys today, and they couldn't be any different.  Let's get started, shall we?  The first one up to the plate is Beautunaful Princess.
A level 1 Water Fish, her effect reads as such: "When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can banish this card; Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower Fish-Type monster from your Deck, except "Beautunaful Princess". You can only use this effect of "Beautunaful Princess" once per turn."
 
If you are looking for a reasonable comparison, think Lonefire Blossom under the sea.  It's stats are abysmal, but you aren't playing it for its stats.  A very interesting note is that how it gets its effect off of being special summoned, so in that regard, it is very good with a card like One for One or Call of the Haunted.  The fact that it banishes itself means that Call of the Haunted is most likely not to happen though.  As it banishes itself on summon as cost, you cannot negate this effect with Veiler, Fiendish Chain, or Breakthrough Skill, so that is a very big deal.
 
Now, what sorts of decks would one play this in, you might ask?  Well, one deck that comes to mind is Mermails.  With Abysspike and Abyssturge, this card has plenty of targets.  But to be honest, my favorite deck to use this in is Gishki.  Why Gishki?  Well, the fact is, this makes summoning Gishki Abyss much more consistent, and Abyss is one of the deck's most valued cards to have.  Also, in any deck that might play this card, it makes Fish Depth Charge a much more consistent and powerful card, in that playing 3 of this alongside 3 of its target gives you six targets in total, more than enough for 2 or 3 Depth Charges.
 
There are two downsides with this card that you might not pick up on first glance.  The first is that you can only use her effect once per turn, but you are mostly going to Normal Summon it anyways.  The second is that you may very well draw all of the targets for her effect.
 
All in all, an incredibly solid support card for Fish monsters, arguably more so for Gishki then for anyone else.
 
Traditional:2/5
 
Advanced: 3.75/5
 
Art: 3/5 It looks strange, but that is honestly what they were going for.
