Yu-Gi-Oh Card Review: The Fabled Kudabbi

It's that day of the week again. The one where you eagerly wake up and think "The TCG Lover has posted a new card review today. I must go and check it out before getting on with my awesome life". If that's not what you're thinking, then what the heck is wrong with you?

To keep the Hidden Arsenal bandwagon cruising, todays card is The Fabled Kudabbi

Zone if he was a Unicorn!

This, along with its other level 4 brother, is a synchro monster that requires a fabled tuner and one or more non-tuner monsters. Since its level 4, you will probably just be using 2 monsters for its synchro summon. Anyway, its got a badass effect.

If you have 0 cards in your hand, this card cannot be destroyed no matter what. If you have 3 or more cards in your hand, this card is destroyed at the end phase.

The Fabled Archetype as a whole specialises in discarding the monsters in their hand to gain their effects. Some of them need to discard for their effect while on the field, like Fabled Grimro. Some make you discard while they're in the graveyard, like Fabled Kushano or Fabled Soulkius. And some activate their effect when they're sent to the graveyard, like Fabled Krus or Fabled Cerberrel. Since Discarding is the basis of the archetype, you can easily deplete your hand, but the trade off is a big field full of monsters. They swarm, and they swarm well. And this card rewards that.

This card is easy to summon in a fabled deck and its got a beefy 2200 attack. That is very high for it's level. There are many ways to summon it with fabled:
- Discard Fabled Lurrie to add Fabled Kushano back to your hand from the graveyard. Lurrie will special summon itself and then normal summon Kushano and synchro into Kudabbi.
- Discard The Fabled Cerberrel to summon any level 2 monster (Like The Fabled Nozoochee) and synchro.

The possibilities are endless. And now that you have synchro summoned Kudabbi, you will need to keep your hand at 0 at all times to keep it on the field. If your hand is 1 or 2 cards, then Kudabbi is a vanilla 2200 monster that can be taken out with ease. Remember to keep setting cards (Spells too!) and this card will stick around for a while.

A great combination is to special summon this card with Call of the Haunted. If you have no cards in your hand, you can let call of the haunted get destroyed and Kudabbi will not be destroyed by Call's effect. Oh if you didn't notice already, It can be special summoned from the graveyard with Fabled Krus.

Next up for review is The Fabled Unicore!
