If you were competing around mid to late 2011 you may remember Reborn Tengu being one of the most popular and useful cards you could have in your Deck. The ability to replace itself for free while also helping out with all sorts of combos made it a force to be reckoned with. However, when it became Semi-Limited its popularity started to decline. In recent times though Tengu’s started to make a comeback, and here are just some of the reasons why!
Cosmo Blazer Special Edition hits stores today, and with it comes the re-release of two mega-popular cards from Order of Chaos: Blade Armor Ninja and Wind-Up Shark! But today, the focus is going to be on Blade Armor Ninja, a sweet Xyz Monster that can go in a wide variety of Decks.
Heraldic Beasts were first introduced in Abyss Rising, but there weren’t enough of them to build an entire Heraldic Beast Deck until Cosmo Blazer came out! The Deck has several Level 4 monsters, and focuses on Summoning Rank 4 Xyz Monsters. With enough Heraldic cards, you can put together a pretty awesome Deck, so here are some tips to help you get started!
One of the cornerstones of Dueling is to make the most out of every monster you Summon. Oftentimes, this means making sure that monster’s Summon is successful and that its effect activates and resolves successfully. Summoning more monsters, destroying cards, adding cards to your hand; these are all things that Effect Monsters in today’s most popular Decks are capable of doing. So if you want to gain the upper hand in a Duel, shutting off your opponent’s effects is one of the best ways to do it, and Cosmo Blazer has a new Trap that can do it not once, but twice.
There’s no shortage of powerful Rank 4 Xyz Monsters to use these days. You’ve got monsters that protect you from attacks (Number 39: Utopia), monsters that can overpower, (Heroic Champion – Excalibur) and key cards for specific Decks (The Evolzars, Blade Armor Ninja etc.). But every so often a new Rank 4 will hit the scene and be a solid card to use in any Deck that can use the service it provides, or even a card that can give older Decks a big boost. Diamond Dire Wolf is one such Xyz Monster.
