Imperial Iron Wall is a solid side deck card that
continues to have a great deal of use in the meta.
No banishing for anyone while this card is out, and
for some decks that can be a big problem. Kozmos
live for banishing, as well as Zombie decks and
Chaos-based decks. Dark Armed Dragon loses its ammo
to remove and pop, Macro Cosmos gets countered, and
Malicious isn't getting removed to Special Summon
another copy. It can also be used offensively by
preventing you from removing for Allure of Darkness
(now at 2). With Kozmo decks dominating and Pendulum
Decks getting hit hard by the ban list, this card
isn't going anywhere. I'd have at least 2 in the
side deck, if not a full playset unless you do a ton
Happy Friday! Imperial Iron Wall is an extremely
simple and useful Continuous Trap Card. It prevents
all banishing. So it doesn't target or negate
anything which is why I love this, Majesty's Fiend,
and Vanity's Fiend. "Floodgates" prevent all of a
certain event from happening. This one is very
useful against many decks that rely on banishing
which makes it an excellent Side Deck card. It is
also useful to chain this to some of your own
effects like 1 of those 2 Allure of Darkness. Allure
of Darkness would draw you two cards, chain Imperial
Iron Wall, and then you just reveal a Dark monster
in your hand and keep all the cards. Run these
unless you run some Chaos deck. In that case, fear
these and run Twin Twister.
Score: 4/5 Simple and effective.
Art: 4.5/5 It looks like iron to me.
There’s not much that can be said about cards like
Imperial Iron Wall. Floodgates need no real
explanation. At certain times, they are standard
side deck fodder and even main deck staples during
tournaments, depending on the meta. At other times,
they are afterthoughts. It’s hard to rate a card
like that. It’s the same struggle as trying to give
a proper rating to a card like Norden. It’s nothing
without Instant Fusion, but broken otherwise. So
who’s the real hero? (Mitch Hedberg’s voice just
sounded off in my head.)
So I won’t try to expand too much on a review for
this. Right now, it’s a great card against Kozmos,
Infernities, and some others. And in the future it
will be used to both hinder and bolster a variety of
themes, because let’s be honest, the “banished pile”
that used to be called “removed from the game” is
now just a second graveyard. It will rise and fall
like the tide until it’s banned, which is maybe
where it belongs.
Average Score for an a-ok card.
Future Potential: 3/5
