The Dark Illusion: Metalfriends or Metalfoes?

August 5th, 2016

Pendulum Summoning is a super powerful way to get a ton of Monsters into play quickly, but what makes it really awesome is that you get to bring back all of the Pendulum Monsters that were sent to the Extra Deck earlier as well. This allows Pendulum strategies to have both lightning fast starts, and strong plays during the late game thanks to Pendulum Summoning.

The Dark Illusion: High Tide

Most Level 6 Synchros are tied to specific themes or monster Types, and the ones that aren’t usually pale in comparison to Level 7’s and Level 8’s.  The handful of exceptions are a big deal: Goyo Guardian, HTS Psyhemuth, and Stardust Charge Warrior are all well respected for their topnotch stats and great effects, and they really don’t have much competition.

It doesn’t help that the most powerful generic Level 6 Synchro Monster was too powerful, and now resides on the Forbidden List: Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier.  With 2300 ATK, it packed an effect that let you discard any number of cards to your Graveyard to target the same number of cards and bounce them off the field back to their owners’ hands.  That wasn’t just an amazing aggressive effect, it could let you reuse your own cards as well, and at the end of the day those combos were just too good for Brionac to survive.

But finally, almost seven years after Brionac’s release, we have a replacement.  Check out Coral Dragon! Read more…
