Obelisk the Tormentor: Reviews and where to look

3.13.12 Card Review. Please like always, look at the new contest and announcements. Also, there is no EPIC MATCHUP this month because of a few problems. Enjoy!

Obelisk is a unbelievable powerhouse, and one of the most brute and destructive cards in Yu-Gi-Oh! It’s one of the greatest good cards ever, so today I’m going to review Obelisk the Tormentor.



This version of Obelisk hasn’t actually been released yet, since it’s set for release in may, so don’t buy the old version, since it can’t be used in a duel.


This is one of the most brute and powerful cards ever, period. It annihilates everything, and is a lot like Raviel, Lord of Phantasms, and The Wicked Dreadroot, But on to the review. This is insanely strong, with 4000 attack and 4000 defense, making it the most powerful straight attack card in Yu-Gi-Oh. But summoning is, well, like any other god card, because you have to tribute 3 monsters to bring it to the field, or you can special summon it with a card like monster reborn, but if you do that, it goes back to the grave at the end of the turn, though when you normal summon this card, cards like bottomless trap hole. But then the abilities begin, which make it a insanely awesome card. First off, once you normal summon it, your opponent can’t activate spells, magic, traps, and monster effects. And then it only gets better, because if you tribute 2 monsters, than this card destroys everything on the field, and gains infinite attack for the turn! Obelisk towers over all other cards, and really has no weaknesses. So pretty much, this is one of the three best cards ever.

What it reads:

Just so you know, this is what the card says:

You must Tribute 3 monsters to Normal Summon this card (you cannot Set this card). The Normal Summon of this card cannot be negated. When this card is Normal Summoned, cards and effects cannot be activated. This card cannot be targeted by Spells, Traps, Spell/Trap effects, or Effect Monster effects. If this card is Special Summoned, it is sent to the Graveyard during the End Phase. You can Tribute 2 monsters to destroy all monsters your opponentcontrols. This card cannot declare an attack the turn this effect is activated.

Where to look:

Right now the legal version hasn’t been released in the U.S, so you can’t get it yet, and don’t buy the non legal version, just wait.

My Rating (out of 5*’s)


Because it’s ability is unstoppable, and it’s a solid and powerful card, it deserved 5*’s worthily. It works well in any deck, and torments your opponent.

U Rate it:

Like always, you can thumbs up or thumbs down this card below, in your opinion.

    all you need is a swords, gravity bind, threatening roar, thunder of ruler already active for the turn its summoned then its effect is usless, it cant attack. then once the turn is resolved your opponent can just use lighting vortex, ragaiki, guardian sphinx and so to get rid of it. keeping 3 monsters on the field against even an average deck is hard, to best use the card is by probably running a swarm deck. but even then an average player would just keep your field down to 1 or 2 monsters. good card but no good unless your playing an inexperianced player or you have adavantage for a otk. once the effect version of silfer is released obelisk will just be a trophy card to show off.
