So you’ve built your Mermail Deck, and Mermail Abyssmegalo has been wreaking havoc for you week after week. But, there’s a problem. Abyssmegalo isn’t just an eating machine, he’s a social being who wants some friends like him. He doesn’t like being the only mermonster in all the ocean! Well, it’s time to introduce him to some new friends in Cosmo Blazer!
Galactic Overlord and Return of the Duelist introduced the Noble Knights and Noble Arms, legendary warriors and their equally legendary weapons. It started with Noble Knight Artorigus, then Noble Knight Gawayn and his sword Gallatin and then Ignoble Knight of Black Laundsallyn and his Arfeudutyr. Cosmo Blazer continues the trend, bringing 2 more Noble Knight monsters back to the table. The first is Noble Knight Medraut, but just how noble is he? And to whom does he swear fealty? That’s up to you!
The Level 4 Fire Fists give you the power you need to incinerate your opponents. But you can’t win with offense alone. You need to support your front line attackers, stay in formation, and keep the option to Summon from your Extra Deck open whenever possible. And to do that, you’ll need the 3 Level 3 Fire Fist monsters from Cosmo Blazer!
FIRE Decks are notorious for their ability to deal damage to the opponent directly through card effects, without even bothering to attack. Cosmo Blazer adds 2 important new tools for Decks like this: Bonfire Colossus and Kickfire.
Kickfire is a Continuous Trap that gains counters when your FIRE monsters are destroyed by card effects. Then you can send Kickfire to the Graveyard to do 1000 damage for each counter it has.
Ah… but what if your opponent tries to get around Kickfire by refusing to destroy your monsters with card effects? Not to worry! Special Summon Bonfire Colossus and use it to destroy your own monsters. This might seem a little reckless at first, but you can put Bonfire Colossus’ hungering flames to good use by building counters on Kickfire.
This combo works even better mixed with the “Fire King” monsters from the Onslaught of the Fire Kings Structure Deck (coming February 8). “Fire Kings” activate additional effects when destroyed by card effects, so you’ll get those effects, and get counters on Kickfire, and have Bonfire Colossus on the field!
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.
