Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Toon Masked Sorcerer

[Spellcaster/Toon/Effect]

ATK/900 DEF/1,400

Cannot attack the turn it is Summoned. If “Toon World” on the field is destroyed, destroy this card. While you control “Toon World” and your opponent controls no Toon monsters, this card can attack your opponent directly. If this card inflicts battle damage to your opponent: Draw 1 card.

Toon Masked Sorcerer is a Toon monster with 900 ATK. He is an alternate version of Masked Sorcerer. Both cards share similar effects for drawing a card after dealing damage to an opponent. Toon Masked Sorcerer has additional effects. The power of Toon World allows Toon Masked Sorcerer to create chaos on the field!

TCG Sets:
  • Astral Pack Eight
  • Dark Beginning 2
  • Legendary Duelists: Season 1
Anime:

Toon Masked Sorcerer appears in episode 149 of Yu-Gi-Oh! Alister disguised as Maximillion Pegasus, and plays this card during his duel against Seto Kaiba. Then, Alister plays Toon Mask to tribute this monster and special summon Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon from the deck!

First Effect:

Toon Masked Sorcerer is unable to attack during the turn when he was summoned. This effect was added to balance the card. It prevents players from abusing the third and fourth effects.

Second Effect:

Toon Masked Sorcerer has the same weakness as many Toon monsters. Toon Masked Sorcerer is destroyed after Toon World leaves the field. A wise opponent can exploit this weakness. Toon Masked Sorcerer relies on Toon World to remain on the field.

Third Effect:

Toon Masked Sorcerer may directly attack your opponent if he or she does not have any Toon monsters. Toon Masked Sorcerer may bypass stronger monsters and damage the opponent. He avoids battles during your turn. You are likely to have this advantage in many duels.

Furthermore, Toon Masked Sorcerer has 900 ATK. This monster will only deliver minor damage to an opponent. You will need to rely on more Toons to deliver massive amounts of damage.

Fourth Effect:

You may draw a card when Toon Masked Sorcerer deals damage to your opponent. You gain a nice advantage from this effect. Your hand gains an additional card. Toon Masked Sorcerer helps you to gain access to your deck’s best cards.

Furthermore, Toon Masked Sorcerer ensures you have cards in your hand. Toon Masked Sorcerer may draw powerful cards such as Toon Kingdom. You will have resources to counter the opponent and increase your advantage.

Card Rating:

Overall, Toon Masked Sorcerer is a mediocre card. Most competitive players would not consider Toon Masked Sorcerer for a Toon deck. His weakness of reliance on Toon World limits the monster. An opponent can easily destroy Toon Masked Sorcerer. The fourth effect is the card’s best effect for drawing cards. I would recommend Toon Masked Sorcerer for a causal deck.

Card Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)
