Didn't we just go over this card is awful and seems like something from the LOB days?  Oh, you did see this guy in video games.  Not only is Dark Artist very weak, at 600 and 1400 respectively, his effect is negative.  If attacked by a Light Monster, his defense is halved during Damage Calculation.  Sorry, but we're not wasting time trying to find a home for this guy

DARK/Fiend/Effect/level 3/600/1400
If this card is being attacked by a LIGHT monster, its DEF is halved during damage calculation only.
 
Wrapping up this week we have Dark Artist, one of the many cards that was in Japan for years and we are only getting now. Statwise there isn’t much to say it is a DARK/Fiend with mad stats even for a level 3. Dark Artist’s effect is even worse, it is being attacked by a LIGHT monster and there are loads of them being played, its DEF is halved. Yes its already terrible DEF gets even more, so it wouldn’t protect itself from anything playable.
 
Overall, play any other DARK/Fiend than this.
 
Traditional: 1/5

Happy Friday everyone!  We end the week with one of the OCG premiers from LVAL, Dark Artist.

Read this.  Now look at this review.  Now read it again.  Now look back at this.  If you're still bothering to consider running this, sell all your cards and collect stamps.  I had to read it like five times myself to make sure I wasn't hallucinating how awful it is.  Just....  What.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
Art: 1/5
 
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Dark Artist

For those who don't know, this card has been out in Japan for over 10 years but never released in English, much like “Swordsman from a Distant Land”. This card was horrible then. It's horrible now.

You would figure with such weak stats, it would have an effect to compensate for it, but it's effect only serves to weaken it further. It could've been a strong monster with an “Achilles heel”, but it's just an Achilles heel with an Achilles heel.

Collectors might enjoy the nostalgia for a minute, other than that, it's purely garbage. Warm up your fire place with it.

1/5 , both formats

Terrorking In the king's opinion, which is the only one that matters, art is a thing that endures. The king doesn't think highly of artists that can't create works that last or can't create works that can be preserved. With that said, one should easily be able to discern my stance on this awful artist that has been brought to the card reviews this day.
 
Hello and welcome to Terrorking's review of Dark Artist.
 
The card is King Garbage's court jester. See, for this card to even gets its effect off it needs to be attacked. However, that effect alters DEF... that means this effect is useless in this game since battles are determined solely by ATK points (when both monsters are in ATK position.) Furthermore, this card's effect only affects Light monsters, so having a useless effect compounded by the fact that it only affects a particular attribute, and pathetic stats means this card's art won't last to your second turn.

Is this a joke? I'm not even going to review this card....it's that bad. The best thing it has going for it is that it is a 3 star, dark fiend...Its stats are pointless and its effect is probably never going to come in handy.
