Wow... finally a good dinosaur since Fossil Dyna.
As part of the overall shift of the game, this card
is both a boon to Pendulum decks and threat to
non-Pendulum decks. The fact that it both
serves as a Pendulum scale and it can revive itself
constantly (meaning you can slay an army of
non-Pendulum monsters) makes it a strong card.
The main problem in this meta right now is that it's
dominated by Pendulum decks. It will do
nothing against Performages, Performapals, or
Majespecters (your biggest threats out right now)
since its effect can't destroy them. It might
leave a dent in tier 2 decks like Kozmos, Burning
Abyss and E-Heroes. It'll also help against a
myriad of rogue decks, making it a worthy side deck
option. When all's said and done, it's a good
card that may get better in the future.
Samurai Cavalry of Reptier, some slang plural of
Reptile, I assume, who according to yugioh wiki
appears to be part of the Draconia family.
Anyway, Level 4 Monster, who is also a 3 on the
Pendulum scale, and Earth attributed with 1800
attack and 1200 defense. You see this card
only has a Monster effect, and it allows you to
destroy a face-up Monster (who isn't a Pendulum) at
the start of the Damage Step, you can destroy that
Monster. I suppose it's neat for whatever
reason (I assume you'd be attacking something
stronger to utilize this effect) but if not, you
aren't FORCED to use that effect, to deal Damage in
destroying something weaker. It's a useful
enough effect, there's a plethora of cards these
days with effects as this or very similar. It
might be a techy card
Hello Pojo Fans,
Samurai Cavalry of Reptier isn't much of a Pendulum
Monster. It has no effect while in the Pendulum
Zone, so it only benefits as a monster, though you
can still use Pendulum-specific support to search it
out. Good ATK, but not much support in terms of
Attribute and Type (Dinosaurs aren't popular
anymore). Killing an opponents monster at the start
of the Damage Step when attacking is halfway to
being like Catastor. However, this card is left
vulnerable when not attacking, and with the lack of
support behind it, Reptier won't last long out
there. Destroying with an effect is sometimes better
than battle, it can get around some searchers.
There's more searchers nowadays though that get a
search regardless of method of destruction, which
doesn't help this card.
Until Next Time
Live from an undisclosed resort it's
WarlockBlitz's Honeymoon! Samurai Cavalry of Reptier
is a Level 4 Earth Dinosaur-type Pendulum Monster
with 1800 Atk and 1200 Def and Scales of 3. We have
the all important Level 4 that everyone knows and
loves. Reptile might have been better than Dinosaur,
but that isn't a problem. Earth is good to avoid
cards like Shadow or Light Imprisoning Mirror and
Poisonous Winds. Of course being a Pendulum monster
is good with its low scales of 3 and because it will
live face-up in the Extra Deck until you are ready
There is no Pendulum Effect, but Samurai Cavalry of
Reptier's monster effect is beautiful in its
simplicity. If it attacks a face-up anything, you
can destroy it at the start of the Damage Step if it
is not a Pendulum monster. It would be better if it
was 'battles' instead of 'attacks' because then your
opponent could run into it and be destroyed as well.
As it is, this card avoids many effects in the
damage step that would otherwise negate it because
only effects that are normally allowed in the damage
step can activate against it. This is an excellent
card in the Side Deck against any non-Pendulum deck,
but I assume it will find a comfortable home in any
Pendulum deck that also runs Performages,
Dracoslayers, or Majespecters.
