Sylvans are back for a day with Sylvan
Flowerknight. An Earth, Plant-Type, Level 4 with
1800ATK/1000DEF, when Flowerknight is Normal
Summoned: You can excavate the top card of your
Deck, and if it is a Plant-Type monster, send it to
the Graveyard. Otherwise, place it on the bottom of
your Deck. If this card is excavated from the Deck
and sent to the Graveyard by a card effect: You can
choose 1 "Sylvan" card from your Deck and place it
on top of your Deck.
Flowerknight does what most Sylvan monsters do:
excavate a card(s), and, if it's a Plant-Type, it
hits the Graveyard. If Flowerknight is excavated
from the top of the Deck to the grave, you can
choose a Sylvan monster in your Deck and place it on
top of your Deck, setting up another Sylvan
excavation effect. Flowerknight has the Earth and
Plant support behind it, can be searched and Special
Summoned easily, and can hold its own.
It's effect only happens when it is Normal
Summoned. If you don't hit a Plant-Type, you are out
of luck. Excavating Flowerknight from the top of the
Deck to the Graveyard allows you to set up a
situation where you will plus off your Sylvan
effect, but having to wait doesn't give you an
advantage (If Mount Sylvania is on the field it can
excavate the card you put on top of your Deck during
your opponents End Phase, if Mount Sylvania survives
This meets your expectations of
what a typical Sylvan card is, in the most boring
way possible. It's a decent beater and it excavates
Sylvans. Not bad, but mundane. A standard card.
While it can help you set up combos, it's also not
a plus one in and of itself. However, in YGO,
synergy and consistency are both important. And
this card meets that mark with flying colors. When
better Sylvan cards come out, there will be more
interesting monsters to run than flowerking, but
nonetheless, as it stands, it's still quite helpful
for Sylvan decks.
Ah, my dears. In light of me missing the review
yesterday, I shall get straight to the point for
Sylvan Flowerknight shows that flower power and
when he allows you to reap a fellow plant from the
top of your deck, and in the event he is discovered,
you get to plant a seed. Now, for those who do not
speak in plant puns, what he does is act as a
consistency tool for a deck that doesn't have a very
"consistency-focused" gimmick. On the mere act of a
normal summon, he excavates a card and if it is a
plant it goes to the Grave. Now, most Sylvans (and
plants in general) want to be in the Graveyard, so
this is good. When you excavate him, he stacks your
deck by putting a Sylvan on top of it to be
excavated by another Sylvan or simply drawn.
Absolutely pivotal card for your Sylvan deck.
Art: 1/5. Having a bunch of flowers on your clothing
and weaponry does not convey well that you are
supposed to be at one with the forest.
