So close to a free rank 8 :(

Submitted by Number80 on Thu, 07/26/2012 - 11:39

I know! I totally wanted No. 40 or 15 to win, cause I'm a Number hunter, and just HOW MANY LVL 10 MONSTERS CAN FIT WELL IN A DECK ANYWAY?! D Desire - fairy deck, red eyes darkness - dragon, (trageodia and metal reflect slime are staple) Utterly, without a Hieratic deck, it's pretty much useless to me.

Submitted by bobafettso on Mon, 07/30/2012 - 17:40

yea i wanted 15 or 40 to or any number card cause now a days numbers are the new hottest thing back then when they didnt have any other thing like fusion or xyz they could use level 10 monsters and no one even uses level 10 monsters now a days

Submitted by AnimeBros777 on Sun, 08/05/2012 - 12:20

Same here wanted the numbers. Could careless about a Rank 10 card that everybody is going to never use. The Gimmick Puppets are the real deal.

Submitted by Bob1200 on Mon, 09/03/2012 - 15:06

Its Not A lvl 10 Monster, Its A Rank 10 Monster, Major Difference, lol

Indeed one of my favorite.. I always deal with my cousin...

Which issue will this come in? I NEED this card.

Submitted by Yugiohking on Sat, 07/14/2012 - 18:25

Looks like a beafy card. However, I'm still not all that familiar with those Xyz monsters. Plus, what monsters could you offer to special summon it? The only level 10 monsters I can think of would be the Egyptian god cards.

Submitted by xCBKxDubstep on Sat, 07/14/2012 - 18:55

red eyes darkness metal dragon is the main choice

Submitted by Darkscythe on Mon, 07/16/2012 - 07:39

With how many cards there are these days there are definitely more than the gods. Cyber Eltanin, Cyber End Dragon, Blue Eyes Shinining Dragon, both Arcana Force EX Rulers, Armed Dragon LV10, any earthbound immortal, all the malefic monsters, the meklords, just to name several. Though its a lot to pay for that monster.
So it would work for a Cyber Dragon Deck or a Malefic Deck maybe...

Submitted by bankai237 on Mon, 07/16/2012 - 08:49

You may also have to look at using the new level 10 card Rocket Arrow Express with an Infernity style in order to quick summon

Submitted by Runner1 on Wed, 08/01/2012 - 15:58

The problem with that is that it basically completely locks you down when you use it.

When you have two monsters on the field that are the level you need for the xyz monster, stack them on the board/disk/ etc and put the xyz monster on top of the stack. You have now summoned a xyz monster. To activate it's awesome effect though, you must discard one of the tributed cards in the xyz stack (these are now called xyz materials). Some xyz cards will penalize you for using or not using these materials. Acid Golem makes you lose 2000 LP unless you discard 1 xyz material. some xyz cards will also be sent to the graveyard after using all their xyz materials.

As for level 10 cards, there are few actual level 10 cards, but there are many cards with level changing effects. If you believe you are going to use this card, I suggest you look for some cards like that.

In competitive Yugioh, there is a deck called Hieratic Dragons, and in their OTK, they bring out two Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon. However, since they are brought out by Atum, their attacks will be 0. After using their effects, you just overlay for Gustav Max and get and easy 5000 damage.

Submitted by HolyPaladin on Mon, 07/23/2012 - 11:00

other level 10 would be shooting star dragon, winged kuriboh level 10

Submitted by Maxgogeta on Mon, 07/23/2012 - 11:42

There is also Tragoedia, Metal Reflect Slime, and Darklord Desire.

Submitted by WorthlessOtaku on Tue, 07/24/2012 - 17:47

You Can use Metal Reflect Slime, it's a Trap monster. And i believe trap monster CAN be used as XYZ materials. there's also Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon as an alternative.

I would be okay with this if they used the original artwork for this card, instead of this artwork which makes the cannon look somewhat similar to the one Machina Sniper and Machina Force uses ( and to some extent, Machina Defender).

Submitted by Gohan1313 on Fri, 07/20/2012 - 16:45

i presume that you referring to the fact that the ned of the barrel looks like a toy laser gun. Why is it that america of all countries censors guns.

What!?! I was hoping for The Creator God of Light Horakhty

Submitted by DAS48 on Sat, 07/14/2012 - 22:47

The creator god of light horakhty wasn't even one of the options

Submitted by jweslowski01 on Sat, 08/18/2012 - 12:24

only made 100

Submitted by Darkscythe on Mon, 07/16/2012 - 07:42

I'm sure it will be in the future. If it's not that kind of a let down I'm really looking forward to it. It would be hilarious to find someone who could use a deck with it successfully. It'd be a fun deck to player with just for the sake of it.

Submitted by theduelingjuggalo on Mon, 07/16/2012 - 10:00

I'm making a deck around the Gods and Blue Eyes. So far its really good

Submitted by jhone89 on Thu, 08/16/2012 - 09:25

Yeah. I successfully created a deck like that myself, except it featured The Egyptian Gods, The Wicked Gods and the Blue-Eyes, be they White, Ultimate or Shining...not a deck to go up against, considering all of the additional cards that I put into it. For duels that are just for the fun of it, I remove the version of Ra that Shonen Jump did and replace it with an Orica card of Ra that has ALL of the effects that it had in the anime and add an Orica "Creator God of Light-Horahkty" that has the image, level, effects, ATK and DEF that the Japanese version has. You know, the Japanese version has no ATK or DEF? It DOES, however have an effect that would leave most duelists cringing if Shonen Jump were to release an English version of it with matching effects! Its effects are thus: "This card cannot be Normal Summoned. This card can only be Special Summoned by banishing one "Slifer The Sky Dragon", one "Obelisk The Tormenter" and one "The Winged Dragon of Ra" from your side of the Field. The player who summons this card wins the duel." Potent card, huh?

Submitted by GreenSscythe on Sat, 07/14/2012 - 20:24

Honestly, thats the ugliest card redesign I've ever seen. I'm sorry but thats just ugly. If it wasn't so good, I'd just run from it in terror.

Submitted by nomore on Sat, 07/14/2012 - 20:40

yep all along

Submitted by omega123 on Sat, 07/14/2012 - 20:54

honestly i thought sirius shoulda won. it had a great debuffing effect. therefore reducing beefy monsters

Submitted by tarix3245 on Sun, 07/15/2012 - 09:07

Totally Agree. I wouldn't mind Gustaph so much if Americans weren't so scared of weapons.

Submitted by bmazz64 on Sun, 07/15/2012 - 16:33

I agree as well. But not about Sirius because it never really had much of a chance of winning. (Sorry, but that is the truth).

Submitted by jhone89 on Thu, 08/16/2012 - 09:28

And yet we LOVE movies with intense gun fights and chase sequences! Honestly, a card with an actual gun would be NOTHING to some of the movies released. Imagine how lame movies like "The Matrix" would be if they edited out all the guns in that, huh?

Submitted by NumbersHunter on Sat, 07/14/2012 - 23:46

I hope number 40: gimmick puppet heaven strings is the next promo after this, cause I'm guessing that's voted as 2nd?
