Card Review- DT03-JP032 Natural Beast

DT03-JP032 Natural Beast
EARTH/Beast - Synchro/5/2200/1700
EARTH Tuner + 1 or more EARTH Non-Tuner monster.
While this card is face-up on your field, by sending the top 2 cards from your deck to the Graveyard, negate the activation of a Magic Card and destroy it.

This is my first card review since I created my blog, yay!! So, lets stop type chickensht and start review.

Well, its seems that you can figure the name of card by looking on the art. It actually beast with roots of tree at its leg and it looks something like tiger. So, the roots of tree(natural) and it looks like tiger(beast) with green background. So, the name make sense by looking at the art.

Anyway, I don like the art coz its kinda weird mixing natural........ and beast(?) does not fit me.

Rating: 5.5/10

This card require a 1 Earth tuner monster + 1 non Earth tuner monster. Is this card hard to get it out, nope......not really. Since this card is 5-star monster, with the help of rescue cat and X-Saber Airbellun (use rescue cat effect, special summon X-Saber Airbellun and another earth beast monster and snychro summon). So, its is piece of cake to special summon it.

Lastly, the stat of this card, 2200/1700. Well, 2200 atk seem to be low for a level 5 monster (can't even beat a normal 1-trib monster[2400 atk]) and 1700 def.......why bother to defend anyway.....


This is where the card review gets intresting...rite!!!!! The effect of this card should remind you of Black Horus Dragon LV8 since both of this card have similar effect. After you get this card out on field, with the cost of cards on top of your deck, you can negate effect.

Send 2 cards on top your deck, negate a activation of magic card. Does it really hurt you or making you lose card advantage? Nope. It does not tell you discard hand card nor released a card on the field or graveyard. You just only need to send card top of your deck.........thats all.

So, with this card on the field and as long you have cards in your deck, you don need to worries about opponent Big Storm, Fisure, and other destructive magic cards and you can halt those snychro combo....cough... urgent tuning (it gets quite popular these days)..cough...

I know that this current metagame is abusing certain effect monster like synchro undead. But you cannot denied the facts that every deck must have magic cards to support it.

Rating: 9/10

Overall: 8.5/10
Negate opponent magic cards at the same time does not lose card advantage. Not to mention how easy this card can be special summon. but the drawback is low stat but who care about stat. Brionac also low stat but still it can be abuse in anyway. So, low stat comes with great effect (hey, not everything is prefect). Try to pair this card with Royal Decree. What can you aspect more.
