Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan

Legendary Six Samurai - Kizan

[Warrior/Effect]

ATK/1,800 DEF/500

If you control a “Six Samurai” monster with a different name, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand). While you control 2 or more other “Six Samurai” monsters, this card gains 300 ATK and DEF.

Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan is a legendary warrior with impressive skills. He always fight alongside his fellow Six Samurais in combat. His effects perfectly complement the archetype’s strategy. Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan debuted in Storm of Ragnarok, and he is a super rare card in the booster set. He has not appeared in the anime.

Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan’s first effect special summons him from your hand if you have a Six Samurai with a different name on the field. The effect complements Six Samurai’s strategy to swarm the field with warriors. The conditions are easy to fulfill. You only need to normal summon a Six Samurai monster. Then, special summon Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan from your hand.

Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan’s second effect increases his ATK and DEF by 300 points when you control two other Six Samurais. This effect enables an aggressive strategy as you swarm the field with Six Samurais. He becomes a good beater with 2,100 ATK. Kizan can easily destroy many low level monsters in battle. In addition, a direct attack from Kizan depletes slightly more than a quarter of your opponent’s life points.

Weakness

However, both effects depend on you controlling other Six Samurai monsters. The first effect is also very important to Six Samurai’s strategy to swarm the field. Your opponent can counter this strategy by preventing your summons. Then, Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan becomes a bland card without any effects. He loses a lot of value for your strategy when you cannot use the first effect.

Card Rating

Overall, Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan is an efficient card to play in Six Samurai. I am currently playing three copies of Legendary Six Samurai – Kizan in my Six Samurai deck. His first effect enables the deck’s strategy to swarm the field. You want to special summon monsters very often. In addition to the first effect, the second effect provides a strong and aggressive offense.

Card Rating: 4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)
