Gladiator Beasts

January 1, 2012

I did not see the Gladiator Beasts in the anime once, but I might have missed an episode or two. These Gladiator Beasts deserve some recognition. When a Gladiator Beast monster battles (attacks or gets attacked), you can send them to your Deck and Special Summon another Gladiator Beast monster from your Deck with a different name. When Gladiator Beasts are Special Summoned from the Deck thanks to another Gladiator Beast. For example, when Gladiator Beast Murmillo is Special Summoned by another Gladiator Beast, you can destroy one face-up monster that your opponent controls. Fusions are also very easy because you can easily get various Gladiators out of your Deck, including the Fusion Materials. Better yet, you do not need Polymerization, so once you get the Fusion Materials on the field, its Fusion time. Also, as a little bonus, when the Fusion Materials are used for a Fusion Summon, they return to the Deck. This makes it easier to Fusion Summon the same monster multiple times. Gladiator Beast Gaiodiaz is a strong Fusion Monster with 2600 ATK and 1500 DEF. When this card destroys an opponent’s monster by battle, your opponent loses life points equal to the DEF of the monster. Gladiator Beast Octavius is another Gladiator Beast monster that can be Special Summoned from your Deck by the effect of another Gladiator Beast. Octavius has 2500 ATK and 1200 DEF. So, you instantly get 2500 ATK without tributing any monsters, and you get to destroy 1 face-down Trap/Spell Card your opponent controls. The only downside to Octavius is that he requires you to discard a card to put him back in your Deck. Also, the cycle of losing/attacking with a Gladiator Beast and then getting one from your Deck is cut short by Octavius. There are so many Gladiator Beasts that do so many different things! Bestria destroys a Spell or Trap Card your opponent controls, Laguari gets to have an original ATK of 2100, and more when they are Special Summoned by the effects of other Gladiator Beasts! Just make sure your Gladiator Beast Deck is only filled with Gladiators.

Are you one of those people who loses to a Gladiator Beast Deck? Do you want to beat a Gladiator Beast Deck? Well, these Gladiator Beasts can’t do well with Transmigration Break or Gravekeeper’s Servant. Transmigration Break is the best card to use because any cards returned to the Deck are removed from play instead, making your opponent be forced to not use their Gladiator Beast’s effect to return to the Deck. If Gladiator Beasts don’t return to the Deck, they will be destroyed, and others won’t have their effects. Gravekeeper’s Servant is also good. Gravekeeper’s Servant’s effect applies when an opponent’s monster declares an attack. For each attack declared, your opponent sends a card from his/her Deck to the Graveyard. This card helps to deplete your opponent’s Deck and get rid of Gladiator Beasts. So, if you want to beat a Gladiator Beast Deck, put these two cards into your Deck.
