Card Review : Divine Fowl King Alector

Hey guys! As requested by the readers out there, I'm going to do a card review about the latest promo card released in the [Yu-Gi-Oh! R Volune 5 ] comic book! The card reviewed today is.... [Divine Fowl King Alector]! So sit back and relax while reading!


[Divine Fowl King Alector]
Attribute: Wind , Type: Winged Beast
Effect Monster , 6 stars , Atk 2400/Def 2000
If your opponent controls 2 or more face-up monsters with the same Attribute, you can Special Summon this card from your Hand. Once per turn select 1 face-up card on the field. Negate the effect(s) of the selected card during this turn. Only 1 [Divine Fowl King Alector] can be face-up on the field at the same time.

On watching the stats about this card. It has a decent 2400 attack strength for a level 6 monster. And also a much more superior defense of 2000 rather than the 1000 defense of the [Emperor] monsters. And by being a level 6 monster, it will be a cinch to normal summon this monster with 1 monster sacrifice! Hmmm, guessed that I should change my way about [Normal Summon] or [Sacrifice]... Okay! This card can be Advanced Summoned quite easily by Releasing cards like [Treeborn Frog] or [Dandelion].

For this card being a Wind attribute as well as a Winged Beast type allows a couple of combos to perform with it. The Wind attribute part allows this card to be a ingredient to special summon monsters like [Dark Simorgh]. While the Winged Beast type allows this card to be released for the condition to use [God Bird Attack] to destroy 2 cards on the field in the case of an "Emergency" LOL!

Well about the effects for this card. The first effect about able to Special summon this card from your hand when your opponent controls 2 or more monsters with the same attribute makes it easy for this condition to be fufilled! When your opponent activates cards like [Flames Of Demise] , [Scapegoat] , [Stray Lambs] or even [Inferno Reckless Summon] that will be able to swarm their own field with monsters of the same attribute. To be able to fufill the condition of special summoning your own [Divine Fowl King Alector] !

As for the second part of the effect for this card. Enabling this card to have the ability to negate a face-up card's effect on the field can be quite powerful at some situations. Even if the situations is about targetting your own cards on your own side of the field. Situations simliar like about targetting your own cards that can benefit you a whole lot will be like.... Targetting your own monsters like [God Beast King - Barbaros] which allows it to resume its enormous attack strength of 3000 points! Or another situation can be that you will be able to target [Beast God Machine King Barbaros UR] to allow it to actually inflict battle damage to your opponent's life points! (Do note that some of these ideas are actually suggested to me by some people that I know. I've compiled some of these information in this review =D)

Continuing on the second effect about [Divine Fowl King Alector] , using it to target cards that disallows you from using of your monsters to declare an attack against your opponent! Target cards like [Gravity Bind] , [Wall Of Revealing Light] , [Swords Of Revealing Light] , [Messenger Of Peace] or even allowing your monsters to revert back to their original positions from cards like [Level Limit - B] or [Level Limit - A]! Or even releasing yourself from lock effects like [Jinzo] or [Spell Canceller] , [Royal Decree] and so on so forth. Allowing you to continue your stunts with these card locking effects negated!

And for the third effect of this card. There can only be one [Divine Fowl King Alector] on the field at all times. This means that the early bird catches the worm! Whoever summons out [Divine Fowl King Alector] first will most probably get the upperhand earlier!

Well thats all for today people! Hope that this review is good enough! And also thanks to those people that provided me with ideas to complete this review! Okay then till next time to our next update! Goulian Signing Off~!
