Aromage Bergamot 

Can we say yuck? In a theme that needs life point boosts to create combos and keep the effects of its monsters running, Bergamot provides trample… and that’s pretty much it. Moderate attack boosts and trample effects are as antiquated as flip monsters not named Scapeghost or Pot of the Forbidden. As stated yesterday, any Aromage that doesn’t boost life points or provide instant plusses is a huge liability to an already weak strategy. As stated yesterday, Aromage is inherently impossible to succeed over time sans crazy new support (meaning a lot more cards as good as Jasmine), but using Bergamot won’t do the theme any favors. 

I’ve seen combos with Black Garden that can OTK with Aromages using Bergamot, but that’s hard to pull off, predictable, it goes against the Aromage theme. Overall, I can’t possibly imagine Bergamot will ever see true competitive play. It just doesn’t have anything going for it, and it’s slow in a game that demands speed. 

Advanced: 1/5
Future Potential: 1/5

Bergamot has some things going for it.  It gets temporary attack boosts and inflict piercing damage, insofar as you're using other cards to gain LP.  But piercing just isn't nearly as important to the game now as it was 10 years ago when players used to set monsters instead of Special Summon them.  It's a tribute monster doesn't provide card advantage.  It doesn't float.  It's slow (effects don't kick in till battle phase onward).  Aromage might want to use just 1 copy as a big beater for damage, at least until they get better higher level monsters.
 
2/5

Aromage, this time of the Bergamot variety, closes the week.  This is a Level 6 Monster, and of the Fire attribute...I like Fire for an attribute for a Plant even less than Water.  Fire kills about 99.9% of Plants, so that seems rather odd to me.  2400 attack is the norm for a Tribute anymore, so good enough there.  There isn't a great deal to say here.  If your Lifepoints are higher than the opponent's, this card has Trample.  If you gain Lifepoints, (once a turn again), this card gains 1000 attack and defense points.  Quite a boost, and it's worth noting that it lasts until the end of the next turn of your opponent, so that's great.  3400 attack with trample isn't anything to scoff at.  Honestly, I feel (or would like to see) these cards catch on.  They're just screaming to be incorporated into/around a Fire Princess burn/LP Deck.

Aromage Bergamot is a Level 6 Fire Plant-type monster with 2400 Atk and 1800 def. This Aromage gives plants piercing battle damage. Do other aromas put monsters your opponent control in defense position? If they do, then this card is good. Can Aromages be summoned easily without tribute? If he does, then this card is good. Do Aromages gain Life Points? Yes, yes they do. Aroma Bergamot can become insanely powerful until the end of the opponent's turn every time you gain Life Points. 3400 Atk and 2800 Def are boss stats, and that is just from one Life Point gain. Run 2 in Aromages to push for game. 
 
Score: 3/5
