Woohoo, its my week now! In this week, we touch upon
some meta-impacting cards that we skipped over from
Secrets of Eternity and Hero's Strike, and for
today's card, we have Qliphort Monolith.
Basically, its the reverse of Qliphort Scout in many
ways. It is reverse stat-wise, clocking in at
2400/1000, it is a reverse Pendulum Scale as well,
being a scale of 1 to Scout's 9. Being a Normal
Pendulum monster, like Scout, it is searchable
through Summoner's Art, Scout itself, and Saqlifice.
It's Pendulum effect is where all the fun stuff
lies. Like all the rest of the Qliphorts, it blocks
special summoning of anything but Qliphorts, so no
Xyz's as long as this thing is in a zone(or other
things, like Flying "C"). However, during the End
Phase, if you tribute summoned this turn, you get to
draw cards equal to the amount of Qliphorts you
Tributed for said summons. Things to note: if you
tribute a monster equipped with Saqlifice, you still
only get one draw from that monster, if you tribute
your opponents Qliphort that you stole, you still
get a draw, and if this card is played after you
tributed, you still get to draw.
Overall, a great card for the Qliphort deck(at 1, at
most), and is, in many situations, the best scale 1
for Qliphorts, as it is the only one to net you card
A very good toolbox option. On the
left-Pendulum, you can have a 300 ATK boost by Disk
or potential drawpower by Monolith. Since it
has no effect (and sub-2800 ATK) as a monster,
people only use 1 of this card because it's
searchable by Scout anyway. Nothing profound
but if you can +1 off of Pendulum Summoning with a
single Tribute, why not? Use 1 copy in
Qli Monsters...Pendulum Monsters...So we have a
Pendulum Monster without an effect, short of it's
Pendulum effect, I guess a Pendulum Monster without
a Monster effect...is that how we distinguish these
things? Qliphort Monolith is a Level 5
Monster, and it's only a Scale 1 on the Pendulum
side, which is good and bad. You might expect
a Level 5 (not a HIGH level Monster, but higher) to
be higher on the scale. But I don't think it
matters much here. This adds some great speed
to an all ready quick Deck. It stops you from
Special Summoning non-Qli Monsters, but that's not a
big issue at all. Said effect can't be
negated, so don't think about that. During the
End Phase (yours) if you Tribute Summoned this turn,
you can Draw a number of cards equal to the number
of Qli cards you used for said Tribute Summon(s).
Is it a MUST in a Qli Deck...you can get along fine
without I think, but it can be beneficial as well.
Just not so sure it's beneficial enough to require
