Double Card Review! [Goyou Guardian] and [Dragon Of The Ice Boundary - Brionac]

Hey all! Its my turn to update a card review on the latest Syncro type monsters! They are a new force to be reckoned with! With fast summoning speed and amazing effects.. These new Syncro monsters can prove to be a new threat in our metagame! The 2 new Syncro monsters that I will be reviewing about are from the latest [The Duelist Genesis] and the newest [Duel Terminal] cards! They are the [Goyou Guardian] and [Dragon Of The Ice Boundary - Brionac]!

First up is the [Goyou Guardian] Syncro monster!

Goyou Guardian 1

[Goyou Guardian]
Attribute: Earth , Type: Warrior
Effect Monster , Syncro , 6 stars
Atk 2800 / Def 2000
1 Tuner + 1 or more Non-Tuner monster
When this card destroys your opponent's monster as a result of battle , you can Special Summon that monster onto your side of the field in face-up Defence Position.

This card is obviously GAY. Why is it GAY? We shall see why it is GAY!

- Level 6 Syncro monster! Easy to summon out! GAY!

- 2800 attack strength and 2000 defence strength for just a level 6 monster! GAY!

- Use this to rape your opponent's [D-HERO Diskguy] ! And then drag it onto your side of the field! Enabling you to draw 2 cards from your deck since it was revived onto your side to the field from the graveyard! GAY!

- Use it to destroy monsters such as [Stardust Dragon] which you will be able to Release it to block certain Destruction Effects! GAY!

- Kill more monsters like [Dark Creator] ! Revive it to your side of the field to use its revival effects! GAY!

This is an extremely short review for this GAY card , because its effect is well self-explained! And ITS JUST SO GAY! (forced to use the GAY words because Kenneth thinks that it is too GAY! )

Okay onto the next review!

Brionac - Dragon Of The Ice Boundary

[氷結界の竜 ブリューナク]
[Dragon Of The Ice Boundary - Brionac]
Attribute: Water , Type: Sea-Dragon
Effect Monster , Syncro , 6 stars
Atk 2300 / Def 1400
1 Tuner + 1 or more Non-Tuner monsters
Discard any number of cards from your hand. Which after that, return the same amount of cards on either field back to the owner's hand equal to the amount of cards that you discarded.

Now onto a serious card review. This card is from the newest [Duel Terminal] thats in Japan for now though lol. Ok being a level 6 monster with an attack strength of 2300 and a defense strength of 1400 makes this card a strong fighter but quite a weak defender! But most of the time that when this card arrives onto the field. You'd probably be able to fend off any strong monsters for your [Dragon Of The Ice Boundary - Brionac] to make a direct attack! Why is that so? Lets take a look onto its effect!

"Discard any number of cards from your hand. Which after that, return the same amount of cards on either field back to the owner's hand equal to the amount of cards that you discarded"

Quite an amazing effect I will say, being able to discard any amount of cards to bounce back on the field the equal amount of cards that was discarded from your hand! And the best of all is that, It ain't a once per turn effect! Which means that you are able to use it as many times as you like a turn! And what kind of cards are worth bouncing back on the field? Lets take a look shall we?

[Premature Burial] - Bounce it to revive as many monsters as you like to swarm your field! Reviving [D-HERO Diskguy] sounds like its going to be a big abuse!

Opponent's strong monsters! Makes sure that your opponent will have to make extra effort to summon them out again!

Or simply just do the [Rescue Cat] + [Premature Burial] combo thats on Dueling Days, Baha did that combo quite nicely and swiftly! Killing quickly too!

Being a level 6 monster allows it to be summoned out quite easily using the above combo! Repeat till your opponent falls dead to your field full of Syncro Monsters!

Well thats the end of the review for this time, Sorry that it wasn't that fantastic guys! Actually they are too broken to be further reviewed lol, we all know what kind of brokeness they do right? I promise that I will do better next time! Till then to our next update! Goulian Signing off!

P.S. Thanks to Baha of for the High Quality Pic of [Dragon Of The Ice Boundary - Brionac] !

Card Review: Stardust Dragon

Hi all its been awhile since I've actually posted something on this blog due to my laziness and being "busy" on Cabal and since Colin has been bugging me for this, might as well take some precious time off to write this review for Stardust Dragon.

Stardust Dragon 2

[Stardust Dragon]
Attribute: Wind
Type: Dragon
Synchro/Effect Monster
Level: 8 stars
Atk 2500/Def 2000
Effect: 1 Tuner Monster + 1 or more Non-Tuner Monster(s)
When an effect of a Magic, Trap or Effect Monster that includes [Destroy the cards on the field] is activated, you can release this card to Negate and Destroy the card. During the End Phase that this effect was activated. And this card is in the graveyard due to being released for the activation of this effect. Special Summon this card back to your field.

Ok I'm sure we all know of this lastest card from the lastest Duelist Genesis pack and its one of the newest types of monsters in the game: Synchro. So why is everyone wanting this card? Thats because
- it doesn't need specific tuner monster to summon
- it can easily prevent destruction cards like Mirror Force & Tidal Wave
- 2500 attack can kill many things like Emperor monsters
- it looks cool enough to pawn your opponent

Baha from Dueling Days & I have been testing this card out in our decks and it sure is able to be summoned pretty quickly in a synchro based deck. In fact, everyone could probably get one for their Extra Deck as you'd never know if you get your opponent's Tuner Monster through Brainwash or something. And synchro really works fast with Psychic monsters as it has the gayest summoning card called [Urgent Teleport]. However, it can easily die to Gaius, Raiza, Ground Mole and even Death Calibur Knight(my Stardust recently died to it) or anything you can think of that uses non destruction effect to remove monsters on the field.

Overall playing this card is definitely for situational based. Of course, sometimes other Synchro monsters are worth summoning than this, but being able to stop a mass field destruction card and returning to your field(provided ur Stardust doesn't get DD Crowed or Propecy or Soul Released away) is gay. I'd still give this card a 8/10 rating cuz its my fav card of the set. =x
