Photon Shockwave Pack Review Part 2

November 19, 2011

This is the final review for the NEW Photon Shockwave Pack. I found 8 additional cards giving me a total of 15 amazing cards for this pack (8 monsters and 7 Trap/Spell Cards). Here are the 8 additional cards. 

Metaion, the Timelord

The first time I saw Metaion, the Timelord, I overlooked him. Metaion is a Level Ten monster with 0 ATK and 0 DEF. Similar to Yubel, this card cannot be destroyed by battle and you lose no life points for this card’s battles. Everything else about the two cards are completely different. You can Normal Summon this card without Tributing if you control no monsters. This card cannot be destroyed by Card Effects, so it is immune to everything! What caught me off guard is that Metaion returns to the Deck during the End Phase, but when I took a closer look, I realized that at the end of the Battle Phase, if this card attacked or was attacked, all monsters on the field are returned to the owners’ hand. Your opponent loses 300 life points for each card returned to the hand with this effect. Then, you shuffle Metaion, the Timelord into your Deck. I would wait to have no more monsters before playing Metaion, the Timelord.


Kagetokage is a Level Four lizard-like monster with 1100 ATK and 1500 DEF. When you Normal Summon a Level Four monster from your hand, you can Special Summon this card from your hand. This card cannot be used as a Synchro Summon, but it can be immediately used for an XYZ Summoning. My prediction is that more cards such as Kagetokage will be invented to make XYZ Summoning easier, which is a good thing, but the new cards might exclude Synchro Summoning like Kagetokage.

Creepey Coney

Creepey Coney is a rabbit with 1000 ATK and 1900 DEF. However, its Flip Effect is nasty. When Creepey Coney is flipped face-up, your opponent loses 1000 life points times the amount of Normal Monsters (monsters without effects) that you control (sadly, this does not apply for tokens). Creepey Coney can inflict a lot of damage to your opponent. 

Attraffic Control

If your opponent controls three or more monsters, then he/she cannot declare an attack. Attrafic combined with The Dark Door would make a great combo. That way, your opponent could attack up to one time per turn!

Ego Boost

When a monster declares an attack, you can use Ego Boost to give one monster on the field 1000 extra ATK. There is no longer a need for Rush Recklessly, because that card only gives a monster 700 ATK. Ego Boost is a quick way to surprise your opponent and build on your offense.

Fiery Fervor

Fiery Fervor is an equip Trap Card that stays with the equip monster for one turn. If your opponent controls 1 monster that is stronger than the equip monster, then the equip monster’s ATK doubles for the damage step only. So, if your opponent controls a Rainbow Dragon (4000) and you control a Tyrant Dragon (2900), that Tyrant Dragon now has 5800 ATK! This is a rare case of a very epic duel, but it could happen. Fiery Fervor allows the weaker monsters to take out the stronger monsters.

Mirror Mail

When one of your monsters is selected as an attack target, the attacked monster’s ATK becomes the original ATK of the attacking monster. I know that there is a similar card, but I can’t quite remember the name. Mirror Mail will surprise your opponent, and it targets the attacked monster, not the attacking monster, so this card works with Egyptian God Cards. Mirror Mail can take out the strongest threats.

Icy Crevasse

Icy Crevasse is the easier-to-play version of Judgment of Anubis. Icy Crevasse can be played when exactly one of your monsters is destroyed by an opponent’s card effect. Now, you get to destroy one of their monsters and inflict damage to your opponent equal to the original ATK of the destroyed monster! The destroyed monster does not have to be face-up on the field for this effect to work.  

That is it for me. I noticed that there were about 40 Trap/Spell Cards in the Photon Shockwave Packs (total number if you collect them all), but most of these cards only target specific monsters like Wind-Up, Evolite, Photon, and even Watt monsters. I hope that the next Yugioh Pack has 15-20 Trap/Spell Cards that can be used successfully in any Deck.

Thank you for your time. Please comment.
