Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Of The Moment – Meklord Emperor Wisel

Posted by Yogizilla on July 28, 2011

It’s time to get back to the roots of DPO – the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG – w00t!

Today, I come with a brand-spanking-new (at least to me) card that came with the September 2011 (Issue 8) edition of Shonen Jump.  Are you ready? *drumroll*

Meklord Emperor Wisel

Shonen Jump Limited Edition - Meklord Emperor Wisel - September 2011 Issue 8

Meklord Emperor Wisel is possibly the sexiest card of the Meklord set.  Sure, Meklord Emperor Granel is great if you play against someone that loves synchros but, let’s be honest, synchro summons are a major pain in the arse and rather easy to counter if you know what you are doing..  So Emperor Wisel is the better choice in most cases.

CARD EFFECT:  Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Must be Special Summoned by its own effect, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. When a face-up monster you control is destroyed by a card effect and sent to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon this card (from your hand). Other monsters you control cannot declare an attack. Once per turn: You can target 1 Synchro Monster your opponent controls; equip that target to this card. This card gains ATK equal to those equipped monsters’ combined ATK. Once per turn, when an opponent’s Spell Card is activated: You can negate the activation and destroy it.

COUNTERS & WEAKNESSES:  If you play against a trap-heavy deck or someone that banishes or returns cards to your hand/deck, then it’ll be hard to even get this card into play and you’ll have it rather vulnerable without proper backup.  Also note that the effect of this card is VERY different from what the Anime and Manga would suggest!

DECK BUILDING TIPS:  I can see this card being part of a great deck core for Machine-heavy decks.  Imagine Meklord Emperor Wisel backing up Jinzo.  Now you are limiting your opponent’s spell and trap card plays.  WOW..  That’s a combo to contend with but, of course, you have to worry about fair play rules and all that good stuff.  In any case, there are many awesome Machine monsters and support cards out there so the potential here is immense.  With a Machine Duplication and several low-level Machine monsters in your deck, you can load up your defensive line easily, too.  I may be building yet another new deck now…  Don’t forget to have some trap card counters handy, just in case!

FINAL THOUGHTS:  Effect monsters are always good in my book and, while there are more counters for effect monsters these days, this one has a reasonable set of summoning conditions and is well worth it.  Relinquished was always one of my favorite monsters because it gave you beatdown muscle and field control.  With Meklord Emperor Wisel, the added bonus is spell-card countering and powerful base stats.  Here’s a card that is flexible enough to be added to virtually any deck you build.  Go for it!
