Duelmasters
So yeah, I'm doing yet another one of those ever-so-delightful Duelmaster Cards of the Week! Thanks to the fact that nobody seems to have Duelmaster cards to trade that I want, I find myself yet again not owning the card that I am reviewing. Still, expect the polls to be up later today for my Blog Contest!

Coming in as this week's DCotW is . . . *inserts Jaws theme music here*

Trenchdive Shark!


Looks pretty darn cool, doesn't he? I have to admire those Duelmaster artists; they make such detailed, and probably huge, paintings or drawings, just to put them on a card you can fit in the palm of your hand. But ramble on. Trenchdive Shark may seem to be an average creature, with 5000 power for 7 mana. Yet he offers a unique power that would seem to be more suited to a powerful Light creature. When you put him into the battle zone, you can add 2 cards from your hand to your shields, in exchange for putting two shields you already had down into your hand. Sure, you can't use the Shield Trigger abilities of the shields you withdrew, if they had it. However, you can use this to your advantage: if you have cards with Shield Trigger in your hand, you can put them into your Shield zone as the first two shields purposely. Then, when your opponent breaks those shields later on, you can summon or cast them for free!

Consequently, I find that a good Light/Water deck with a lot of spells suits Trenchdive Shark the best, although any good Water Deck will do. This works to a double advantage: not only are some of the best Light and Water spells Shield Triggers, but a few cheap Water or Light blockers also have the ability. So just send in Trenchdive Shark later on in the game, when you have fewer shields. Two could actually be the magic number, since your opponent has to take them after you perform the switch. And voila, if you summon the blockers you can provide your now-shieldless self some protection, and if you summon the spells you can use their great effects. Pity the Miraculous or Invincible spells don't have Shield Trigger . . .

Ballom's Rating: 3/5. While his power and ability can be useful, his high mana cost makes Trenchdive Shark less than perfect.

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.
