The White Stone of Ancients

When attempting to revitalize an archtype, I imagine there’s always a conversation that takes place that starts with something like “Okay, what’s the key cog going to be?” In the case of Blue-Eyes White Dragon, the answer to that question was the White Stone of Ancients. This monster is just plain silly. Even if Dragon Spirit of White didn’t exist, the ability to summon any Blue-Eyes from the deck just by sending it to the grave is absurd.
 
This monster makes the Blue-Eyes deck – without it, the theme wouldn’t tie together in such complete harmony as it currently does in the OCG. Dumping it via Shrine, discarding it for Melody or Consanance, summoning it to tune into Spirit or Azure and then bringing out another Blue-Eyes. Without this monster, Blue-Eyes would not work nearly as well. And just White Stone’s first effect would have been enough, but to sugarcoat the return of Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Konami decided to give it a second effect that multiplied options ten-fold.
 
For that reason, White Stone will also probably be the first Blue-Eyes card to get the ban hammer. It’s the piece linking all the other beasts, and without it, Blue-Eyes would be severely tamed. Blue-Eyes is currently missing some key pieces in the TCG, so this card has great potential in the future and shouldn’t be in nearly as much danger any time soon.
 
Advanced: 5/5
Future Potential: 4.5/5

Great card for the deck.  It Special Summons a Blue-Eyes from the deck, and then it adds a Blue-Eyes card from your graveyard to your hand: that makes it a searcher, a recovery card and a +1 all at the same time.  Plus, it can be sent via discarding or tributing.  All Blue-Eyes decks should run 3 of these.

4/5

What an upgrade. The best part about this upgrade is that you can us this and The White Stone of Legend. They have exactly the same stats by being Level 1 Light Dragon-type Tuner monsters with 600 Atk and 500 Def. Well, almost the same. The White Stone of Ancients has double the Atk and Def. But that doesn't matter because it also has twice as many effects, both of which are good. 
 
The first effect activates in the End Phase once per turn. You can Special Summon any Blue-Eyes monster from the Deck so long as The White Stone of Ancients was sent to the grave (and is still in the grave) that turn. Technically there is no cost to this effect. If it's in the grave get any Blue-Eyes monster to the field with no effect or Atk restrictions. It won't be destroyed or removed or anything. Blue-Eyes monsters are universally strong, and there are more on the way, so this card has future potential and current utility. Urgent Tuning or that other card that Synchros grave cards makes this card very combo worthy. As if that wasn't enough, Ancients has a second effect that can really only be activated once per turn. Even though the first effect says once per turn, if you put multiple Ancients in the grave, you can get multiple Blue-Eyes monsters. This second effect doesn't take into account multiple Ancients. And it has a cost to banish itself from the grave to add any Blue-Eyes monster from the grave to your Hand. That's a useful effect and a good option, but this monster only really needed the first effect to be playable. 
 
Score: 4.5/5 Run three in any Blue-Eyes Deck. 
Art: 2/5 I would need a Blue-Eyes claw hatching or something. Otherwise it's just a shiny rock. There's a joke about engagement rings somewhere here, but I don't know it.

Hello Pojo Fans,

Another "Blue-Eyes" support card gets an upgrade. "The White Stone of Ancients" is slightly stronger than its predecessor, its first effect is the same as "White Stone of Legend" with one key difference: it has to be in the graveyard and you gain the added resource during the End Phase. Instead of getting it right away and being able to use it for "Trade-In" or something else, you have to wait. This has to do with its second effect, but it is still less effective than White Stone.

Get back a "Blue-Eyes" monster from your grave by banishing this card is an effect that may come through in a pinch. You need to Special Summon a Blue-Eyes, this card will give it back to you, or if you just traded it in, just banish this monster and get it back. A good effect, but when you are unable to get the "Blue-Eyes" until the End Phase, that can slow your play down.

Advanced- 2/5
Art- 3/5

Until Next Time,

KingofLullaby
