Wait. Is this card a joke? It's a weaker
clone of Goyo Guardian. Maybe it could've been
useful 2-3 years ago, when that card was banned, but
why now when it's legal? Chaser is obsolete
out the gate. Only 1900 ATK (compared to
Guardian's 2800) won't fetch you any strong
monsters. The stat boost is situational (as if
there's going to be 4 EARTH-Warrior Synchros on the
field to power up this card). One advantage it
has is that it can summon the monster it snatches in
ATK mode, but it's ATK is halved. You're
looking at an extra 900 damage max.
Look a Synchro Monster! Goyo Chaser is a
Level 5, Earth, Warrior Syncho Monster, with a
rather paltry 1900 attack and 1000 defense.
Synchro Summoned by a Tuner and one or more
non-Tuner Monsters. So Chaser gains 300 attack
for each Earth type, Warrior Synchro Monster on the
Field...except itself, so being alone, he can't even
benefit from this effect. So you're very
likely looking at needing a Deck consisting of being
able to make those Monsters, and an Extra Deck full
of the Synchos to have Chaser benefit from this
card. Honestly, the attack boos at 300 per is
pretty negligible, especially since he doesn't even
boost himself. He does have the neat ability
of any Monster he destroys by Battle (and sends to
the Graveyard) can (not must, but can) be Special
Summoned to your side of the Field. But
wait...any Monster you choose has its attack halved.
Effects stay intact though. He's not taking
out much at 1900, and you can always use it to XYZ
or Synchro (or even Tribute) for something stronger
but he just doesn't have enough going for him.
Goyo Guardian is a great card. So great he has
had several followers since his release. Goyo Chaser
is a lesser form of Goyo Guardian. While the power
boost it can get is good, it'd take 3 EARTH Warrior-Synchro
monsters to boost it up to Goyo Guardian's level and
Level 5 isn't as easy to make as Level 6. Shrinking
the monster's ATK that you bring back from the grave
is counterproductive. You want to run over big
monsters and then use them to your advantage. Attack
mode instead of defense mode off of the Special
Summon is useful, but not if the monster's ATK is
halved. Goyo could make an 1800ATK monster 900ATK,
which would eliminate any real damage it could do.
Goyo Chaser can be useful in taking down useful
Level 4 and lower monsters that fall beneath its
original ATK. There are plenty of monsters that are
useful that this monster can defeat in battle, but
the original Goyo Guardian is such a better monster
to invest resources in it makes this monster look
Until Next Time
So apparently there is Goyo
support now. Goyo Chaser still has underwhelming
stats. He comes in as a Level 5 Earth Warrior-type
Synchro Monster with 1900 Atk and 1000 Def. The
attack is low for a Level 5. Even 2200 Atk after the
effect boost is low. Warriors have lost some support
with Reinforcements of the Army down to 1. He's
Synchro, but I might have given him more points as a
Level 4 Synchro/Tuner.
Goyo Chaser has two effects.
The first one is a selfish 300 Atk boost for every
other Warrior Synchro monster on the field. This
attack boost can get big in the Goyo mirror match.
In general, you might get 600 more Atk. The second
effect is that if Goyo Chaser destroys a monster by
battle and sends it to the grave, you can Special
Summon it with half as much Atk. The only
improvement on the effect is that you can hit with
the monster if you Special Summon it in Atk
position. With Goyo Guardian existing with higher
Atk and better effect, this just seems irrelevant.
Score: 2/5 Goyo Guardian
exists, this probably shouldn't.
Art: 2/5 I just don't get it.
