As you all saw in the previous episode, the Supreme Chaos Deity – Ruler of Eternity is the ultimate card of Chaos, and meant to be a balance point between the two Envoys. Believe it or not, there are already two cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh universe that could potentially fit that category. Let’s take a look at them, and see why I didn’t use them.
Name: Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of Twilight
Effect: Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Cannot be Special Summoned, unless you have an equal number of LIGHT and DARK monsters in your Graveyard. Must be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing all LIGHT or all DARK monsters from your Graveyard, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. While face-up on the field, this card is also LIGHT-Attribute. When this card is Special Summoned: You can activate 1 of these effects, depending on the Attribute of the monster(s) banished for its Special Summon. You cannot conduct your Battle Phase during the turn you activate this effect. ● LIGHT: Target 1 monster on the field; banish that target face-up. ● DARK: Banish 1 random card from your opponent’s hand, face-down, until your opponent’s End Phase.
This card came out several months ago in Japan, and has yet to make an appearance in America. Initially, I was happy to see a new Chaos card, especially one that stayed true to my vision of Chaos. But that soon went away. It is my opinion that this card was made to profit off of the extreme popularity of the Envoy of the Beginning (Which I completely resent). In the end, this card is nothing but a watered down version of the original.
Pros: Since it is called the Envoy of Twilight, it counts as both a Light and a Dark monster, and its effect revolves around Light and Dark monsters, it can be seen as a balance between the two Envoys of Chaos.
Cons: It favors Light by being a new Black Luster Soldier, and its effect deals with only Light or Dark, not both. Also, it’s effect is fairly (b)lack luster (pun intended), and in the end, it isn’t any more powerful than either of the Envoys.
Name: Chaos End Ruler – Ruler of the Beginning and End
Effect: Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing 1 LIGHT Warrior-Type and 1 DARK Fiend-Type monster from your Graveyard. Cards and effects cannot be activated in response to this card’s Special Summon. You can pay 1000 Life Points; banish all cards your opponent controls and all cards in their hand and Graveyard, then inflict 500 damage to your opponent for each card banished by this effect.
This card appeared in episode 11 of Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal. It was the center of a plot to steal the ultimate deck (Which is surprising to find that it’s not Yugi’s deck, but a Chaos deck. Hmm…I wonder what that means.). This card was seen for only a split second, but thanks to the fact that cards actually have text in the Japanese anime, we are able to know what its effect is.
Pros: It is without a doubt more powerful than either of the Envoys. In fact, since its Chaos Emperor Dragon-like effect also banishes, that makes it similar to Black Luster Soldier’s effect as well. Its name also infers a combination of Light and Dark. The effect that stops cards from responding to its summon, allows it to share an effect with the Egyptian God Cards.
Cons: Its summoning requires a Light Warrior (Such as Black Luster Soldier), and a Dark Fiend (Like…well um, not like Chaos Emperor Dragon), which I personally find very strange. I personally do not like its name, why does it have to have end and ruler in its name twice?
So as you can see, despite having two already existing cards to choose from, why I made my own.
Until next time, duel on!
