Apoqliphort Skybase

 

Like the much hyped (and then forgotten) Towers/Killer, this is just yet another "win-more" card.  Taking control of an opponent's monster is a great effect (and it's almost indestructible).

 

But if you already control 3 Qli monsters, you're already poised to win the game, and you don't need this.  If they limited Skill Drain, perhaps this and Towers would see some play.  Till then, I dunno

 

2/5

Apoqliphort Skybase (have fun saying Apoqliphort, although it's actually not the hardest name at all in this family to say) is a brute of a Monster.  Level 9, 2900 attack (good, but as bad and unrealistic a standard as it may be, I prefer a Level 9 Monster to have at least 3200 attack, maybe more even) and the 2500 defense is solid enough, but definitely low for it's Level.  Can't be Special Summoned and requires three "Qli" Monster to be Normal Summoned/Set.  If Normal Summoned/Set, Skybase is unaffected by Magic and Trap effects, and activated Monster effects, from any Monster who has a Level or Rank (originally lower) than this card, again that being 9.  Also, this card's CURRENT level, and there's plenty of ways for you and your opponent to raise/lower the Level of a Monster.  That's more of a worth pointing out than a it could bite you in the rear comment, but it's worth pointing out.  Now past all that, once a turn, you can target (note target) one Monster your opponent controls and take control of it until the End Phase.  That's huge, as should be obvious.  The three Tributes SUCKS...but is necessary, as is the no Special Summoning, because Skybase is powerful, and very good for a theme.  It'll be fun to see if it's enough (along with the other Qli support) is enough to bring the Archtype up toward the top.
