Abyss Actor – Sassy Rookie

 

This monster is so disappointing. Abyss Actor – Sassy Rookie is one of those monsters where you just shake your head at the little line of text that ruins all the other things going for it. Sort of like the difference between “you can’t special summon after playing this” versus “you can’t special summon during the turn you play this.” Sassy Rookie lacks the harmony with Metalfoes and pretty much the rest of his own archetype that his colleagues have simply because he protects himself from destruction once per turn, and you have no choice in the matter. Not only that, but his recruiter effect can’t get another copy of himself. Speaking of which, why did that become such a bad thing in Yu-Gi-Oh? Monsters used to be able to special summon other copies of itself from the deck all the time!

 

But I shouldn’t say it’s “so” disappointing because Sassy Rookie is still really good. He just doesn’t have the great monster effect that other Abyss Actors do. His pendulum effects are amazing, and provide a bit of steely protection for one-turn kills that most archetypes don’t have, especially late game. His high attack is a plus, as well. Most monsters with protection-like effects are usually in the range of 0-500 ATK. He’s filler, but he’s upper-tier filler and most decks run three copies of him. You should, too.

 

Advanced: 3/5

Future Potential: 3/5
