Relinkuriboh

 

I have to believe eventually the many, many Kuriboh versions will be tied together into their own theme. I really don’t understand why they keep making them, unless Konami think it’s fan service, in which case they’re failing. Outside of Kuribandit, none of them have seen real competitive play. And players don’t care about fan service in the end if the cards can’t be used. Even Dark Magician Girl gets forgotten over long periods of time. However, the upcoming Kuribohrn gives me hope that they are finally thinking about tying all the variants into a real theme.

 

Relinkuriboh isn’t the worst of the Kuribohs. But I really can’t imagine a deck where you would include him just to set and then later tribute him for the draw. And unfortunately his second effect only protects from battle, which is a real bummer, because he might have been truly useful if he protected all destruction. It’s times like these that makes me wish Konami would also errata cards to make them good, instead of to just take them off the ban list. Imagine if Multiply and Flute of Summoning Kuriboh could work on any of the variants! But alas, they don’t and this monster isn’t very good.

 

Advanced: 1/5

Future Potential: 2/5

Its Necro Gardna lite and replaces itself when tributed.  It does take up a Summon and will detract from your field presence even if it does float.  Toons that Special Summon with tributes can use this.  Kuriboh decks perhaps.  Situational card though.  Has some utility but wouldve been much better had it been out in the TER-Metamorphosis era.

2/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Another cute fuzz ball to add to the ever-growing Kuriboh family: Relinkuriboh
 
Simple effects. Tribute this card in some way to draw a card. This is a good effect, as it can work with effect as well as costs of all cards. Banishing to prevent a destruction by battle for any of your monsters is also a handy effect. You can also tribute this card from your hand for effects and get a draw. After Relinkuriboh hits the grave from being tributed in some form, you are set up for stopping one attack to a monster of yours. It won't save you from direct attacks like Necro Gardna, but Necro never netted you a draw off of a tribute.
 
You likely don't have a spot in your deck for this card, but in fun decks that tribute a lot could test this card out.
 
Advanced- 2/5
Art- 4/5
 
Until Next Time,

Here's one of the Kuribohs that we haven't reviewed. Relinkuriboh is a Level 1 Dark Fiend-type monster with 300 Atk and 200 Def. There isn't much to say about these stats. They match other Kuriboh stats. If it had Squire stats, Monarch deck players would be all over this card. As it stands, the effect upon tributing might be enough for this card to see play. 
 
Relinkuriboh has 2 effects. The first is to draw 1 card when it's tributed for anything. This could be Tribute Summon, cost for an effect, or Ritual Summon from the Deck. Or another reason that cards get tributed, if you get to tribute it, you get a card. The best part of this is the lack of restrictions. If you somehow manage to tribute all three copies, you get to draw 3 cards. The second effect activates in the grave when any of your monsters are about to be destroyed by battle. Just banish Relinkuriboh from your grave, and your monster can't be destroyed by that battle. Again, no restrictions here. If you have multiple of this in your grave, you can save multiple monsters. This is the some of if not the only support for ritual Relinquished, but I doubt that will become a relevant deck anyway. This is an excellent splash card if only to make Where Arf Thou? or One for One more useful in decks. 
 
Score: 3.5/5 Future potential abuse. 
Art: 2/5 I don't quite understand the tech elements.
