Goyo Predator is a far cry better than the Chaser we
looked at yesterday. But how good does that
make Predator? Let's take a look. Earth,
Warrior, Level 6, a standard good 2400 attack here
(with a not so good 1200 defense) and Synchro
Summoned with a Tuner and one or more non-Tuner
Monsters. Honestly, this guy isn't bad at all
for a generic, splashable Level 6 Synchro.
Like yesterday, when it destroys and sends an
opponent's Monster to the Graveyard, you can Special
Summon it to your side of the Field. Said
effect can only be used once a turn, so if for some
way, you destroy more than one Monster in a turn
with this guy, you can only Special Summon one.
But as opposed to that Monster having its attack
halved, the Battle Damage inflicted by that Monster
is halved. That's actually fine. You can
take out some useful and powerful stuff with this
guy having 2400 attack. I wouldn't fault
anybody for playing this.
Same issue as Chaser. Goyo Guardian already
exists, and while it's a solid Rank-6, it's barely
having an impact on the meta. It's a step up
from Chaser with 500 more ATK and a restriction that
lessens the damage instead of the damage and the
snatched monster's ATK strength. In that
sense, you get a 2nd attack (whereas Guardian
doesn't give you that option). I still don't
think this card is necessary, though.
Hello Pojo Fans,
Goyo Predator isn't going to be getting much love
either, just like yesterday's CoTD. With weaker ATK
and the same Level as Goyo Guardian, being able to
Special Summon in attack mode the monster this card
destroys and sends to the graveyard can't make it an
equal. Any battle damage a monster Special Summoned
by this card does to your opponent is halved.
While doing life point damage isn't always the most
pressing concern, I don't know why you would choose
this monster over Goyo Guardian when Synchro
Summoning a Level 6 unless you were going to have a
clear attack on your opponents life points, but even
then the damage is halved. You don't want to be
decreasing battle damage. This card is better than
yesterday's, but once again you can't compete with
Goyo Guardian. Predator lacks the ability to climb
over bigger boss monsters, let alone Rank 4's that
can get equal or over 2400ATK.
Advanced-2.5/5- Some potential with the ATK mode
Special Summon, but still not as good as original.
Until Next Time
So now we have this. Goyo Predator is a generic
Level 6 Earth Warrior-type Synchro Monster with 2400
Atk and 1200 Def. This has the same stats as
yesterday's card, but with more Atk and Def and one
level higher. It also has similar stats to Goyo
Guardian, but the original is still better because
it is more likely to kill things in battle to apply
Goyo Predator only has one effect that can only be
used once per turn (unlike the other two Goyo's). If
he destroys an opponent's monster by battle and it
hits the grave you can Special Summon it to your
side in any position but the battle damage it
inflicts is halved. I don't think we needed this
Goyo either, but it's better than the last one.
