A Last-ditch Move

Posted by Ballom , Aug 02 2008 · 56 views

Duelmasters
Once again, I'm doing the Duelmaster Card of the Week. But there's a difference this time. Because I've already done a card from each of the 5 civilizations twice, I've decided to do a mixed-civilization card from the latest two expansions regularly as well. And I think that this week's DCotW, while underlooked as a Very Rare, could quite possibly be one of the best cards in the game -- in a certain situation.

Therefore, I present to you:

Bombazar, Dragon of Destiny!


The mixing of civilizations isn't too bad, especially when you consider that they've only come up with five combos so far. Anyway, Bombazar has a high mana cost, but his power almost equals it. And like many of the cards from Shockwaves and beyond, he is put into the Battle Zone tapped, meaning that he is just asking for attacks from your opponent's larger creatures. Still, if you have Blockers, it's really worth it to have him in play. First of all, when he is first played, all of the other creatures with 6000 power that hope to tie with him are destroyed. This unfortunately includes your own, so make sure your creatures do not have this power at all costs. Then, you get another turn after that one is completed, but if you don't win at the end of that turn, you lose.

However, that means you don't need worry about losing, if you have the right stuff. Bombazar himself has Speed Attacker and Double Breaker right off the bat, so after his initial turn of being tapped, he can break all of your opponent's shields in two turns. So you should attack with your creatures, save one, to destroy all of your opponent's Blockers before Bombazar can do his job. Then, once all the shields are cleared, just attack with your last, weakest creature, and you win! Simple as that.

Of course, you need a deck with at least Fire and Nature stuff in it to even pull this off, and some Blockers from other civilizations are needed just to protect Bombazar. Once you've assembled enough big creatures (or maybe spells) to clear the enemy Blockers out, though, you're all set.

Ballom's Rating: 5/5! I've never tried this all-or-nothing strategy myself, but it sounds mighty fun! Plus, Bombazar seems like a good creature overall, even if he can lead to suicide if you're unprepared.

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.
