Legendary Knight Timaeus is legendary in name only. But let's look at the good first. Light and Warrior are very good, Level 8 is good, 2800 attack is good also. 1800 defense is meh, but restrictive Summoning isn't good at all. This card can ONLY be Special Summoned (not Normal Summoned or Set or Special Summoned in other ways) with Legend of Heart. We didn't even get the other two Legendary Dragons or there respective Knights, but I suppose that's irrelevant. Legend of Heart makes you pay 2000 Lifepoints and give up a Warrior to bring out this Knight (I suppose all three if you had all the necessary pieces). This Knight doesn't do much, of course greatly toned down from his cartoon counterpart. When Special Summoned, he lets you remove a face-up Magic or Trap card from play, and set a Magic card from your Graveyard to the Field. Oh but you only get the Magic card when you're targeted for an attack. This is all but garbage folks, unless the others work better or they do some broken stuff as a team. Hold on to it I guess

Legendary Knight Timaeus
LIGHT/Warrior/Effect/Level 8/2800/1800
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must be Special Summoned with "Legend of Heart", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. When this card is Special Summoned: You can target 1 face-up Spell/Trap Card on the field; banish that target. When this card is targeted for an attack: You can target 1 Spell Card in your Graveyard; Set that target.

We are looking at some Timaeus cards this week and we start off with Timaeus’s true form; Legendary Knight Timaeus.

Statwise, Timaeus is a LIGHT/Warrior which is good with 2800 ATK; which is good for a level 8 and 1800 DEF which isn’t very good

Effectwise Legendary Knight Timaeus can only be summoned by the effect of Legend of Heart (see later in the week), this is never a good thing and given the cost of Legend of Heart, this card already isn’t worth it. Still when it is Special Summoned you can target and banish 1 face up Spell/Trap card. This isn’t great either, banishing is good, but it has to be face-up, therefore limiting it to continuous cards and fields.

Finally if this card is an attack target, you can target and set 1 Spell card from your graveyard. Getting spell cards back is good, but that card isn’t going to help save this monster. Also that spell card is useless for that turn, making still vulnerable to the opponent’s cards.

Overall, this isn’t worth the high cost that will be involved in summoning this monster. None of effects or stats are massive, in fact the effects are quite weak and not worth it.

Hello Pojo Fans,

Continuing with the Dragons of Legend set, we're looking at the first (and only one to appear in the set) Legendary Knight: Legendary Knight Timaeus. A Light, Level 8, Warrior-Type monster with 2800ATK/1800DEF, Timaeus can't be Normal Summoned/Set. He has to be Special Summoned with "Legend of Heart", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. When he is Special Summoned: You can target 1 face-up Spell/Trap Card on the field; banish that target. When this card is targeted for an attack: You can target 1 Spell Card in your Graveyard; Set that target.

Light monster, good, warrior, good, level 8, good, all that adds up to a vast amount of support and cards that will allow you to either pull this monster from or back from any location in the game. That being said, Legendary Knight Timaeus can ONLY be Special Summoned by using “Legend of Heart” (a card we will be reviewing this week). Once Special Summoned, Timaeus can target a face-up spell/trap on the field and banish it. The banish part of this effect helps avoid cards that gain additional effects when they are destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, or cards that have protection abilities against destruction. If there aren't any face-up spell/trap card to target then that effect is useless. If Timaeus is selected as an attack target, you can target a spell from the Graveyard and set that card. Recycling spell cards can help setup your next move, or help defend your monsters that turn in the case of Shrink and Book of Moon. Getting a reuse of a spell card even once is good.

At the moment, Legendary Knight Timaeus isn't worth playing. In the future, when the other two Legendary Knights are released, Timaeus and the others will be in their own deck and perhaps be very useful.

Legendary Knight Timaeus

Cool card for collectors to have as a decorative piece. But as a card itself it's not good. If you don't have an affinity for the anime, avoid this card.

The summon restriction (requiring Legend of Heart) reduces its versatility. It's on-summon effect that kills a face-up Spell/Trap is good the majority of the time. But there are so many other better spell/trap removal options that are faster and easier to activate.

It's second effect that allows you to set a spell is interesting. Big problem. It needs to be attacked. On top of having to wait to get your spell, why would your opponent attack it when they can just remove it. It's succeptible to Dark Hole, Mirror Force, et al.

No one with an IQ above 55 would attack this card. So why make it's best effect contingent on that. You could use cards like Taunt and Staunch Defender, but why clog up your deck with situational cards even more.

As far as I am concerned, it's mostly just a 2800 beater. A situational one, too.

Traditional: 1/5 (no, not happening. Ever.)

Advanced: 1.5/5 (it some plus sides, but is way too slow)
Art:
4/5 (not innovative but still cute, quality, yugioh-esque artwork.)

Terrorking

Hello my googly-eyed misfits, and welcome to yet another installment of "Terrorking makes you wiser." For the uninitiated, that means welcome to another review of mine. Indeedly doodly. Today's card is Legendary Knight Timaeus. Let us get started.

"Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must be Special Summoned with "Legend of Heart", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways."

Uh-oh. That's not good. See, for the past 6 or so years Konami has sort of realized that monsters that can only be summoned in one specific situation aren't very good, so we get Graphas, Machina Fortresses and so on. This is a massive negative already.

"When this card is Special Summoned: You can target 1 face-up Spell/Trap Card on the field; banish that target."

Backrow removal is good. Backrow removal on a monster this big is pretty underwhelming, especially since it's an enter the battlefield effect. Effect is too weak, so another negative.

"When this card is targeted for an attack: You can target 1 Spell Card in your Graveyard; Set that target."

First of all, this card has 2800 ATK. Not many monsters will be attacking it. Rather, Number 101 and a myriad of other Xyz monsters don't need to enter the battle phase to get rid of this guy. Another bad effect.

All things considered, Timaeus is not a good card by any stretch of the imagination.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
