Welcome to “Game On!” the column where I review one card each week on how strong it is, what kind of deck would this card work in, and the pros and cons of the card. Today, I will review the card “Marshmallon.” “Marshmallon” is a level three light attribute fairy-type monster with 300 attack points and 500 defense points.
Although this card seems weak at first glance (the card’s picture is incredibly cute!), “Marshmallon” can’t be destroyed by battle, although damage calculation is applied normally, and when it is attacked face-down your opponent loses 1000 life points, making this card a near invincible wall.
However, “Marshmallon” can still be destroyed by spells like “Dark Hole” and “Raigeki”, or by traps like “Torrential Tribute” and “Sakuretsu Armor”. Even with this small crack in the armor, “Marshmallon” can be essential for decks like the “Elemental Hero” deck.
An “Elemental Hero” or “E-hero” as it is also called, focuses on the warrior-type “Elemental Hero” monsters like “Elemental Hero Avian” and “Elemental Hero Burstinatrix”. The “E-hero” deck relies on getting out its powerful fusion monsters like “Elemental Hero Flame Wingman” and “Elemental Hero Thunder Giant”. Without the field spell “Skyscraper”, the non-fusion “Elemental Hero” cards are pretty weak. By putting “Marshmallon” in this deck, it will give you a wall to hide behind to protect yourself until you get the right cards. “Marshmallon” is also good in an “Exodia” deck, as it could take a while to get all five pieces.
So, in conclusion, “Marshmallon” may not be a powerhouse, it can be used in decks that require time for its strategy to come together. That’s all for this week, see you next time here at “Game On!”.
