Under The Spotlight : Aliens
December 16, 2010 § 6 Comments
Hey guys, no I am not talking about that movie with the Aliens that pop out of people’s stomachs. I am referring to the yugioh Aliens, which are reptiles.
Today I will be highlighting four cards from the group of Aliens that I feel make them competitive and will hopefully get some of you interested in building a deck of your own.
The first card is a quickplay spell card called Mysterious Triangle – Destroy 1 monster on the field with an A-Counter. Then, you can special summon 1 level 4 “Alien” monster from your deck. Destroy it during the End Phase.
This card is virtually amazing, it destroys 1 card the opponent controls with an A-Counter on it, secondly you can special summon 1 Alien from your deck, this can be used defensively or used to push damage. Not to mention synchro summoning, level 9.
The best combo for this card is the continous spell card Code A Acient Ruins – Each time a face-up “Alien” monster(s) is destroyed, place 1 A-Counter on this card. Once per turn, you can remove 2 A-Counters from anywhere on the field to Special Summon 1 “Alien monster from your graveyard.
So if the monster does die from Mysterious Triangle at least you can get counters for it, which then can inturn special summon monsters from your graveyard. The second major benefit of this card is the fact that those 2 A-Counters to special summon can come from anywhere on the field.
The third card is a monster level 1 light Retile Tuner, Alien Ammonite – When this card is Normal Summoned, you can Special Summon 1 level 4 or lower “Alien” monster from your graveyard. Destroy it during the End Phase.
First amazing thing, sync for the level 5 Alien monster. It’s effect is decent and can help get the deck rolling it also has 2600 Attack Points.
Second the monster that is special summoned doesn’t get its effect negated, this is one of the only monsters that don’t negate the special summoned monsters effect. (Debris Dragon, Junk Synchron)
Lastly you can choose the battle position of the special summoned monster.
The last card that I want to bring to your attention is Plant Pollutant Virus (PPV), is a normal trap card. Tribute 1 “Alien” monster. Destroy all face-up monsters without A-Counters your opponent controls. Until the end of your opponent’s 3rd turn after this card’s activation, place 1 A-Counter on each monster they summon.
Reminds me of the good old days, Crush Card Virus. Just not as amazing. So lets discuss its selling points, firstly on the first turn this will be devastating. Since for the next 3 turns all monsters the opponent plays will now have A-Counters which is something we want to abuse.
Also this doesn’t restrict the opponent only to normal summons this also includes special summons and flip summons.
I hope this cards have given you a taste of the awesomeness of Aliens and you’ll want to dig through all of your cards to find some playsets.
If you guys could leave another awesome deck that I should look into in the comments I will try my best and I will try to post something on 1 of them.
Thanks for reading, see you guys later.
