Prediction Princess Tarotrei

While it is in theory splashable, I can't see any deck that would take on the burden of trying to summon a ritual monster.  Prediction Princesses aren't a very good archetype either.  At the very least, this card plusses on summon (but too bad, early game, you can't SS from your deck).  Even better, you can manipulate your opponent's monsters for battle and yours for flip effects.  It's not half bad for what it's trying to do.  Just Ritual Summoning is a bad mechanic. 

1.5/5

In doing CotD for today, I realize I definitely put the cards I wanted this week in the wrong order, tomorrows card definitely should have been first this week, and yesterday should have gone Thursday.  But I digress.  Prediction Princess Tarotrei (say that three times fast) is also a Ritual Monster.  This time, Level 9, and a Light attributed Fairy (and her Ritual Summoning card does something neat,allowing you to remove it from play except the turn it went to the Graveyard to add a Prediction Princess Monster to the Hand from the Deck) with 2700 attack and 1200 defense.  You are allowed here to use Monsters from the Hand or Field, which is good, as Level 9 is a bit difficult to accomplish.  During your End Phase, you're allowed to Special Summon a flip-monster face-down from your Hand or Graveyard.  Furthermore, once a turn, during either players' turn, you can target a face-down Monster on the Field and change it to attack position.  Or target a face-up Monster on the Field and switch it to face-down defense position.  She's rather disruptive, and the 2700 attack is solid.  But she's essentially the Queen of Postponing, and she destroys nothing with her various effects.  At least not alone, maybe you do with something you flipped or Special Summoned face-down, but still.  I'd like more time to see this Deck in action, and lots more support, so the jury is kinda out for now.

Well here is a combo card if there ever was one. Prediction Princess Tarotrei is a ritual monster with a good, self-repleneshing Ritual Spell Card. The monster itself can be very disruptive. It gives you free field advantage during the end phase. Then, during either players' turn and only once that turn, you get to target a monster and essentially flip it up for effects or flip it down for defensive plays. Depending on the flip monster you get (other Prediction Princesses, Shaddolls, or the old Earth flip monsters), you gain even more advantage. The easiest combo is probably with Manju. Summon Manju, gain its effect, summon this, and use its effect on Manju to gain the effect again later. 
 
The attack is a bit low for a level nine monster. Light Fairy makes it a great chaos option in Dark decks. Rituals can be slow, but this one has a good spell and no restriction on the level of the tributed monster. 
 
Score: 4/5 I like this card. Prediction Princess decks need more support, but this is an excellent start.
Art: 3/5 She looks cool, but is missing more of the "Tarot" theme that her name implies.

Remember back when Ritual monsters were a joke? Heh, me too. And no, I don't miss them.

Beautiful to the eye and powerful to boot, we have one of the new Prediction Princess cards. This is Tarotrei, who at 2700 ATK is nothing to sneeze at. Better still, she can guarantee you'll have a Flip Monster to work with at the end of every turn. Every. Single. Turn! That might not sound like much, but think of the potential with Penguin Soldier and Man Eater Bug, Remember those old fogies? Well, with a card like this they can be back with a vengeance!

And hey, there's more: You can mess with your opponent by turning a monster of his/her face down, giving you an opportunity to take it out with a high-ATK monster. And likely, that high-ATK monster will be this pretty lady here. (I can't really see her face, but judging by her name, I'm guessing she's a lady). You can also force a face down Monster face up; use this at your own risk if it's a face-down opposing monster.

If you can get passed the whole Ritual thing (and really, the whole Prediction Princess set wants you to overlook it), then this could be the princess for you. Heck, give the whole theme a shot if you're brave enough. It'll make your opponent think twice about attacking that face-down monster.

Final Score: 5/5 for Prediction deck, 3/5 as a stand-alone Ritual (and only if you have a few Flip monsters to back it up)
