    Default YGO COTD - 10/16/2006: Asura Priest



    Text
    This card cannot be Special Summoned. This card returns to the owner's hand during the End Phase of the turn that this card is Normal Summoned or flipped face-up. This card can attack all monsters on your opponent's side of the field once each. This monster cannot attack your opponent directly if it attacks any monsters first.

    *** *** ***

    Okay, ladies and germs. Req's back in the saddle. I was off with my teammates yesterday making decks and getting packs in a local tournament. Wasnt worth it at all, tiny little bit but we got our yugi-s worth. Anyway I digress. As usual. Today, I bring to you another spirit. Because its spirit week. (Thanks Kero, lol) Asura priest is what scapegoats dream about then wake up with a cold sweat and tears in their never-open eyes. They wont smile anymore once Asura comes in and kicks them all outta the way. Swap this guy, let your opponent borrow it for a second - JUST A SECOND. It'll be back in the end phase. So much you can do with a spirit, and this one is a great one.

    Advanced Format: 4/5 (I tech this sukka in 3 out of 5 decks I make. Sided or not. Theres a reason. lol)

    It can attack once each? LOOK OUT FOR GYROID!!!! XD

    I see this in SJC decks at times. Not having one I can't vouch for it's level of awesome. HOWEVER I see the crazy potential this thing has and that shows I haven't been out of the game for too long.

    4/5 freaking crazy man.

    On a side note could you imagine if it could attack a monster more than one time? Attack postition Spirit reapers would cry. Hard.

    WOW, never raelised this guy's potential. If it ever starts to get played competitively, Scapegoats will fear.

    4/5

    I used to sideboard this against goats and crowd control. Very underplayed, and thanks to DB2, is now COMMON.

    3/5
    Props to MysticFlames for these!

    The reason people run it is because of Hydrogeddons and Recruiters...

    And that's why it's good, it clears out the field for your Cyber Dragon that you likely special summoned along with it. Which bring me to the point of Spirit clause; Because it returns to your hand, and it's not that strong, you need to run it in a deck that can support it and maintain field presence. Which is also weird, considering you'll likely be running recruiters alongside the recruiter counter...Overall, it's not that great unless it can be supported, and it's a pretty crap topdeck.

    ADV tech: 3.5/5
    ADV Spirit deck: 4.5/5
    The OTK: 5/5

    People do say he smashes on recruiters, but only if you arent that good. There is always the option of not tutoring a monster, and depending on your tutor card you can easliy rid yourself of the problem.

    Mystic Tomato >>> Newdoria
    Mother Grizzly >>> Yomi Ship
    Shining Angel >>> D.D.W.L.

    so on so forth. Thats why I didnt mention it.

    And? The point is to stop the field advantage they would be keeping, that they would probably tribute for a Monarch or Swap to you next turn..And, either way, it's a 141..

    Good luck on keeping that Soul Exchange or Brain Control from letting the monarch come out. Or if the player wants to keep the priest for later use, why would they hit the monster removal card.
