Energizer Mecha Thunder

Duelmasters
My dire prediction turned out to be true. I am now also doing a critique of a Duelmaster card each week, in which I tell how it can be used, and where to use it in decks, and other stuff like that.

So allow me to introduce, as DCotW #1, one of my personal favorites:

La Byle, Seeker of the Winds!


This is a great Light creature to have around, for several reasons. It costs 7 mana to summon, but such costs are definately worth it. La Byle is the Duelmaster equivalent of the Energizer bunny: it can keep blocking attacks, destroying small blockers or creatures in the process, and keep untapping and blocking, untapping and blocking . . . it just keeps going and going. I once used a La Byle to deflect eight attacks and destroy five of the attackers. Pretty good, huh?

It works best in an all-Light deck, or a deck with a heavy amount of blockers. If you need the mana to summon larger attackers, just send a La Byle in to sponge up attacks. Should a larger creature come up, just have it either break a shield, or take the blow with a smaller blocker to keep La Byle alive.

You can also put her under the Evolution Mecha Thunder, Kuukai, Finder of Karma, later on in the metagame.

For only 2 mana less, Kuukai provides a hulking 10500 power to deflect and destroy medium attackers, and will survive a lot longer than La Byle does. A properly Re Bil-enhanced Kuukai can deflect even the mighty Ballom himself.

Ballom's Rating: 4/5. Kinda weak, and a tad expensive, but it does its job well.

Awesome! I'd love to be able to get some of these cards. If possible, could you make a list of all of them, because I'd like to get some of the rare, uncommon, and common ones too, as well as other very and super rares. Out of those you listed, I'd like:

-Roaring Great Horn
-Giriel, Ghastly Warrior
-Ladia Bale, the Inspirational
-Sieg Ballicula, the Intense
-Aeropica
-Invincible Abyss
-Obisidian Scarab
-Spinning Totem
-Random holographic common/uncommon cards

Since you have Sieg Ballicula and Invincible Abyss, I'd like to get all cards you have from their series, because those are the two I have the least of. Even puzzle cards are wanted. Finally, could you just send me all these if you don't want 'em?

Thanks.

Hmm... I'm not so sure I want to trade Giriel, Ghastly Warrior, Ladia Bale, and Sieg Ballicula, because they play pretty important roles in my decks but the others cards I'm fine with. I listed all the super rares I own, but not all the very rares, so I'll list the rest later.

Could you tell me which commons and uncommons you are interested in specifically, otherwise it would be a lot of work for me to list all of my cards. Sorry but all my puzzle card are bent out of shape, I use them as dividers in my card box.

What would you be willing to trade for my cards? It need not be Duelmaster related.

One thing I would like to say is that this would be my first time trading with someone over the internet, so I was wondering how this would work exactly?

Dang. I'd really like to get Giriel and Ladia Bale. Oh well, at least I'm getting Roaring Great Horn and all of the very rares (minus Sieg Ballicula) I mentioned. Now, as for what I want, here:

-All of your puzzle cards (I don't care about their condition)
-All cards from Rampage of the Super Warriors set
-All cards from Stompatrons of Invincible Wrath set
-Roaring Great Horn x2
-Explosive Fighter Ucarn
-Dark Clown
-Gatling Skyterror
-Stampeding Longhorn
-Storm Shell
-Spiral Grass
-Hypersquid Walter
-Plasma Chaser
-Dark Titan Maginn
-Alcadeias, Lord of Spirits
-Trox, General of Destruction
-Doboulgyser, Giant Rock Beast
-Supporting Tulip
-Hydro Hurricane
-Marinomancer
-Smile Angler
-Gregoria, Princess of War
-Magmarex
-Obsidian Scarab
-Snork La, Shrine Guardian
-Twincannon Skyterror
-Bloodwing Mantis
-Aeropica
-Invincible Abyss
-King Benthos
-Battleship Mutant
-Spinning Totem
-Justice Jamming
-Kizar Baziku, the Outrageous
-Pulsar Tree
-Riptide Charger
-Trenchdive Shark
-Hopeless Vortex
-Propeller Mutant
-Venom Charger
-Apocalypse Vise

That's all of the cards from the first 7 sets that I can think of needing. And as for the transaction of the cards, I can give you Pokemon cards or something else such as a (limited) amount of cash, but I was hoping that these were extras you could give me for free. smile.gif

As for the transaction, we exchange places of residences and addresses, and mail each other the spoils.

How about that?

If I May Quote Myself

In blog entry "An Analogy -- Life is like a Rubik's Cube: sometimes you need to screw everything up to get it all right."
Or everyone. Posted Image

In response to Seran's WIP image of his Boxor MOC
Although this may be a completely wild guess, I do believe that is a picture.

In blog entry "Dlakii"
Oh my. I didn't know that they made metal sporks.

In "Is there ever a time when you can't post?"
No, since I can always to to GD and post a couple hundred times. XD

In response to "I've forgotten how to blog"
Click "Add entry". Then enter a moronic title. Then click on the text section, mash your keyboard with your fists for as long as you wish, and post it. Congratulations, you now can blog better than the majority of BZP.

In response to "How often do you accidentally post in the wrong topic?
Never. I have these magical devices called eyes and this thing called a brain which prevent that. They're quite handy.

In "The weakest element"
Xenon, or perhaps Radon and Argon. Really, a Toa of Noble Gas can't control much at all, due to how few things they bond with. Xenon hexafluoride is all that immediately comes to mind, in fact.

In "Hardest thing to MOC"
Fluffy pink tutus. Mainly because of the slight handicap of pink Bionicle pieces not existing.

In "Talking to staff members"
Talking to staff members? Well, I'm generally okay with it as long as I have my pepper spray nearby.

...

In "Mask powers"
Hurr durr.

In "What did you do during the downtime"
I sat in a shadowy corner in a fetal position for five days, rocking back and forth in a crazed manner.

In "How do you imagine yourself on BZP?"
I am a Nidoking, obviously. How these stubby little claws are capable of typing on a keyboard I'll never know. :P

In blog entry "Bascula"
Hooray, I'm a geek.
