Yo Yo! Its Ken in the house again! Its been awhile! Right? Well, nvm. As you all might have noticed. We've added afew more features to this site! So do take your time to take a look k! Now for the card review.
Ok, Since Colin will be doing another card review, I'd be doing this. Especially for Guo Dong as requested on the tagboard =)
God Beastking Barbaros
Card Attribute: Earth
Card Type: Beast-Warrior/Effect
Effect: This card can be Normal Summoned or Set without Tribute. In that case, the original ATK of this card becomes 1900. If you Tribute Summon this card by Tributing 3 monsters, destroy all cards on your opponent's side of the field.
Stats: Good stats. Considering it to be an 8 star with 3k ATK is quite big to beat many monsters down. Being an 8 star means alot of things. I'm going to list a whole bunch of combos for this card alone.
Trade In: Throwing this 8 star monster into the graveyard and bringing it back with a revival card is a good combo. Refreshes your hand instantly, thinning the deck down by 2 cards.
Skill Drain: When Skill Drain is on the field, while this card is normal summoned without tributes, it'll have same the ATK/DEF (3000/1200), same thing goes to Fusilier Dragon, the Dual-Mode Beast. Big beatdown.
Revival Cards: Call of the Haunted, Premature Burial, etc. Like mentioned earlier, its the full 3000 ATK.
Metamorphosis: Banned already. But very worth mentioning. Since its first effect is that it can be normal summoned without any tributes, it IS still a 8 Star monster. So you could summon Cyber Twin Dragon, Gattling Dragon, etc.
Light & Darkness Dragon: Everyone's favourite. One of the ways of revival. Since what L&DD brings back is a big 3k beatstick, why not throw this into our L&DD decks?
Enraged Battle Ox: Nothing much about it. Just gives that 3K beatstick trample. OUCH!
Dandelion: Tokens give quick tributes for its Raigeki + Harpy effect. Same goes with the normal Destiny quick summoning engine decks.
Any card that takes opponent's monsters: Same reason for the above. E.g: Brainwash, Creature Swap, Enemy Controller...
Destiny Hero Bloo-D/Plasma: No, not yours, Opponent's. Normal summon without tributes. 3K. Point and Laugh. (Baha's line) =D
Mist King: Look below for the review. Tribute this card for Mist King allows Mist King to have the full 3K ATK of Barbaros.
Plain Beatstick: 1900 ATK is strong too. It can kill Airman!
Gaia Power: Well, adds 500 attack and works for all earth attributes.
Wild Nature's Release: If without tribute, 3100. Other than that, 4200! OMG!
Well, thats about it. I personally find that playing it in a Beatdown or L&DD deck is the best.
Any other combos that you think this card can be played with or is better than any here, well do feel free to share it with me! Comments are always welcomed =)
Until next time, wait for Colin's exciting review on : The splendid VENUS
