Sage with Eyes of Blue

 

Sage is a poster child for “toolbox” – it just does so many things well. Unlike Protector and Master, Sage is super fast, letting you plus from the deck for a Maiden or Veiler if you need to normal summon it. But his main reason for existence is to work alongside Maiden with Eyes of Blue. Discarding Sage and targeting Maiden allows you to summon two Blue-Eyes White Dragons from the deck (Or more likely a Blue-Eyes White Dragon and a Dragon Spirit of White). And then you’re golden. Sync into Blue-Eyes Spirit or XYZ into a rank 8 monster, or heck even fusion summon into Blue-Eyes Twin Burst or ritual summon Chaos Max. This versatility is what has led to Blue-Eyes’ true success. Options galore.

 

I’m glad he has 0 attack, because at the very least Sage should have some downside, even if it’s small. I believe Sage has magnificent future potential. Even if Blue-Eyes decks should get hit by the ban list, the most likely targets will be cards like Return of the Dragon Lords (formerly Gospel of Revival), Melody of Awakening Dragon or Blue-Eyes Spirit Dragon. Sage and Maiden will remain at 3 forever, and will be a constant boon for the theme.

 

Advanced: 3.5/5 (increase to 4.5/5 once the TCG gets all the Blue-Eyes support)

Future Potential: 4/5

This card is good for the deck.  It searches.  Unfortunately, it cannot search another copy of itself and you wouldn't want to search for Protector.  That leaves Maiden with Eyes of Blue, which is a pretty decent defensive card and White Stone of Legend which is good for consistency.  It can also Summon a Blue Eyes from the deck (which is really good for power, speed and consistency).  However, you have to give up 2 cards to do it (itself and another).  Granted, it's much more convenient than Tribute Summoning, and if you give up a floater (like Stone, which is searches), then you'll be good.

3/5

Sage with Eyes of Blue continues our Blue-Eyes week. Much like the “Eyes of Blue” monsters, it has low stats, but great effects that will help your “Blue-Eyes” monsters. You have four “Eyes of Blue” targets, as well as the two white stones and the potential Effect Veiler.
 
Trading any effect monster for a “Blue-Eyes” monster from your deck is a great effect. You will be powering up with a much stronger monster, as well as plus off of some of your effect monsters like Maiden with Eyes of Blue.
 
You won't be able to add anything off of this monsters Special Summon, but you'll likely be Special Summoning Blue-Eyes monsters. 
 
Advanced- 3/5
Art- 3.5/5

Here we have another monster with many stats that don't matter. Sage with Eyes of Blue is a Level 1 Light Spellcaster-type Tuner monster with 0 Atk and 1500 Def. Again, the only stats that do matter are that it is a Level 1 Light Tuner monster. These effects are what make the deck function. They even make some other decks more viable. 
 
The first effect triggers upon Sage's Normal Summon. You get to search any Level 1 Light Tuner monster from your Deck to your Hand except another copy of itself. You could get the White Stones, the other Eyes of Blue monsters, some of those Psy-Frames, Some of those Buster Blader Tuners, or even just Effect Veiler. There isn't even a once per turn clause on Sage. If you gain access to multiple Normal Summons, you gain access to this effect more often. Sage's second effect is also great because it pulls a boss monster from the Deck. The cost of the second effect is to discard Sage from your Hand and send an effect monster you control to the grave. Nothing is destroyed for that cost but you can use your opponent's monsters if you control them. Then you can get a Blue-Eyes monster from your Deck, once per turn. There is more Blue-Eyes support coming, but even for right now, you are essentially sending two monsters to the grave to get a 3000 Atk beater from your Deck. Furthermore, the cost to target an effect monster you control will trigger some of the other Eyes of Blue monsters' effects. You could end up with multiple Blue-Eyes on the field with just this one card. Excellent. 
 
Score: 4/5 Good enough for Kaiba, good enough for me. 
Art: 5/5 Such Wisdom.
