Doomsday Horror does not have true stats to speak of. It is a Level 4 Dark Fiend-type monster with ? Atk and ? Def. It only gains real Atk and Def on the field equal to the number of banished Dark monsters multiplied by 300. So there need to be 6 banished Dark monsters to have a decent Atk of 1800. If the effect is negated there is no Atk boost. I wish Doomsday Horror had 0 Atk and 0 Def, but it is what it is. There may be points in a duel where this monster has an absurd amount of attack, but since it has no protection, that won't really matter in the long run. 
 
The second effect allows Doomsday Horror to be useful after being destroyed and sent to the grave. This mandatory effect returns all banished Dark monsters to the grave. This is probably the more realistic of effects. Allow Doomsday Horror to crash into something stronger and reset all Dark monsters back to the grave to regain any banishing effects or costs. I would have liked the effect to be optional, but the versatility is ok. So the score goes from bad to ok for effects that might help sometimes. 
 
Score: 2/5 This effects are meh. 
Art: 5/5 That name is awesome.

Doomsday Horror
 
Doomsday Horror gets a reprint in Destiny Soldiers, and it’s a card that has been around a while but hasn’t seen much use. However, even nine years later, I still think this card could one day make it big, especially as decks continue to get faster and faster.
 
Doomsday Horror is unique in his effect, able to return any potential amount of monsters back to the grave. This includes biggies like Necroface, Necro Gardna, pretty much anything with a “necro” in it. And the reason this should be notable is that some players are already starting to use him in curious ways. Take the Fairy Tail Doomsday deck, which uses Lightsworn and Necroface milling in combination with Fairy Tail – Snow and Shiranui in order to pump Doomsday up to big numbers and flood the field with monsters like D.D. Scout Plane (which can then go into Rank 2 plays) and Shiranui synchro monsters. And if Horror happens to die, well you get back all the dark monsters, which provides new food to Snow. It’s a nifty little deck that is maybe one or two cards away from being a real horror in its own right.
 
And this is the crux of the matter. Because Horror has an effect that no other card has, his potential still exists, even all these years later. I honestly believe he can be a problem child. In D-Heroes some day? Darklords, perhaps? You never know, but Horror is definitely a card to still keep on your radar.
 
Advanced: 2/5
Future Potential: 4/5
