Remember Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier? For
those of you who weren't around and/or don't,
today's card is a Ritual version of a very powerful
Synchro Monster. Same attack and defense, at 2700
and 2000 respectively, same level (9), and still
Water, although a Warrior as opposed to a Dragon,
which is appropriate if only in terms of artwork.
So, any Ritual Nekroz card will Special Summon this
card, and you can't use a Level 9 Monster for said
Summon...which you aren't likely to carry anyway.
Both of these effects can be used once, during
either players' turn. When a card or effect is
activated that targets a Nekroz Monster(s) you
control, you can discard this card to negate the
activation. When this card is Ritual Summoned, you
can remove three of your opponent's cards from
play...one from the Hand, Graveyard, and
Field...EXACTLY three note. So if there isn't a
suitable target in each spot, you don't get that
effect. This is still the best Nekroz (to date) in
the arsenal. Enjoy
Hello Pojo Fans,
Since being banned, duelists have wanted Trishula
to return in some form so they could harness its
destructive and game-changing power. Nekroz of
Trishula gives them that chance. Sharing everything
except the Type as it's predecessor, Nekroz of
Trishula's Warrior Type gives it the option of being
targeted by Warrior Returning Alive.
Not being able to use a Level 9 monster within
the requirements of the Ritual Summon isn't that bad
of a restriction, and doesn't hurt NoT's
playability. Hand Trap ability to negate a card
effect when a “Nekroz” monster is targeted by a card
effect is great protection and as previously
mentioned, this card can be returned to the hand
with Warrior Returning Alive.
When you Ritual Summon this card you get to use
Trishula's game-breaking ability of robbing your
opponent of 3 cards (one from hand, grave, and
field). Your opponent will likely always have a card
in each of these areas, so its safe to say you will
always have a target. If not, NoT will always have
its Hand Trap ability to protect another “Nekroz”
It can be argued that Nekroz of Trishula is
easier to bring out than the original Trishula.
Nekroz of Brionac can search Trishula out from the
deck and Shurit, Stratege der Nekroz can be used for
the entire Ritual Summon cost, or search out
Trishula as well when Tributed. Even if in the
graveyard Nekroz of Trishula can still be Ritual
Summoned by using Nekroz Cycle. Even Nekroz
Kaleidoscope has the ability to bring Trishula to
the field and activate its effect.
Nekroz of Trishula is a great card and likely the
cornerstone of the deck.
Let me tell you a story of an
encounter I had with a guy at a
Eternity Sneak Preview. I had proxied Nekroz the
day before with the intention of testing it (as I
had planned on building it before Komoney
rarity-maxed everything and shortprinted the key
cards). One guy came up, saw the proxies, and
complained, “Oh my God, it’s that freaking Trish
Spam Deck.” Maintaining my composure, I politely
told him, “I only run 1 Trish; it isn’t the focus of
the Deck. Valkyrus and Unicore are.” He looked at me
and said, “Then I’m not afraid of it. Sorry, Trish
is the only scary card in that Deck.”
This is the biggest
misconception I see new or bad players think when
they see Nekroz. Nekroz of Trishula is
not the focus of the Deck; just because it’s a near carbon copy of
one of the best Synchro monsters in the game doesn’t
mean that it’s the only thing in the Deck’s arsenal.
The reason only 1 Trishula is
used is because it is not a part of the Deck’s
engine; it does not get you to any other cards. One
can argue that its protection effect from targeting
is enough reason to run 2, but in this meta (i.e.
full course Nekroz with a side of Qliphort),
targeting effects aren’t actually that common,
especially with Burning Abyss joining Shaddoll in
falling off the face of the Earth.
Now don’t get me wrong.
Trishula is still incredibly important to the Deck
because it heavily disrupts your opponent, and in
the mirror it punishes them for screwing up (as they
should never be putting themselves in a position
where Trish can hit them). My point is though that
the Deck has the ability to search everything, and
Trish doesn’t further your own searching, so 1 is
really all that’s needed; if you are in a situation
where you require it, chances are that you can get
Still, Nekroz of Trishula is
one of the main reasons why Nekroz is such a large
threat. But what would you expect out of an expy of
one of the legendary Ice Barrier Dragons?
(Side Note: Of the five cards we reviewed this week,
I gave four of them a perfect score, and the last
one a 4/5. I guess that shows just how many sleeper
cards Rituals had before Nekroz became a thing.)
While this is not the win-state of the deck, it
is the power card of the deck and the primary way
Nekroz decks neg the opponent. Against other Nekroz
decks, Trishula is easily recovered from but against
most deck types, a Trishula is devastating,
especially since it banishes 3 cards during a time
when graveyard power is important. Less is more,
though. You only need 1 Trishula in your deck (maybe
2 if you want) because it's easily searched and you
can just recover it with Unicore anyway. Perhaps the
most frightening aspect of this card is that the
opponent plays differently, and more conservatively
knowing that Trishula can wreck them.
