Yu-Gi-Oh Card Review: The Fabled Unicore

Hello readers. As stated at the end of my last card review, today is The Fabled Kudabbi's brother/sister (Im veering towards sister, but its a unicorn so who gives a flying f***).

Here we have The Fabled Unicore

That's one evil looking unicorn.

This 4 star unicorn has an impressive 2300 attack, making it the strongest level 4 synchro out there (There's only 3 level-4 synchro monsters, so its not really worth giving a cookie to). Like its brother it is synchro summoned with one fabled tuner and one or more non-tuner monsters. And like all of the fabled archetype, it is a LIGHT attribute. Now for the effect:

While both players have the same number of cards in their hands, you can negate the effect of effect monster's effects, spell cards and trap cards while this card is face up on the field.

This effect can be incredibly annoying for your opponent. Since fableds discard alot, the critical number is 0 cards in your hand. If you can get your opponent into a topdecking situation, there is not much he can do. If you have 0 cards and he/she does too, they will have to draw a card and not use it until their next turn, otherwise it will be negated. But you can just draw and not use that card, so you are both at 1 card in hand and they will still be unable to do anything. But i can see this card being the bane of many duelists who are sick of hearing "how many cards in your hand?".

Since this monster's effect is continuous, it does not start a chain and therefore can negate counter traps, similar to cards like Royal Decree and Spell Canceller.

One way to get both players to the same number of cards in hand is morphing jar. It refreshes both players hands to 5, so thats an option (fableds run morphing jar anyway).

Thats about it, really. its a decent card and at the very least it can suicide into Brionac.


  1. Contrary to popular belief, Fabled Unicore has a continuous effect, not Trigger. It will actually negate Counter Traps just like Royal Decree would, so long as the hand count is the same.

  2. Furthermore, since it is contiunous, it will stop Super Poly. Super Poly can't be chained to, but continous effects to negate all magic cards will negate it anyway. lol

  3. I don't think thats true with super polymerization. I've heard its effect is basically spell speed 4 in respect that it cannot be stopped.

    I don't know the proper ruling, but we'll know by april 19th.

  4. No matter what kind of effect it has, a card can be stopped, and this just makes things fizzle.

  5. There's no such thing as a Spell Speed 4, whatever information you heard was false.

    Super Polymerization is able to be negated by continuous effects

  6. I never said that Spell Speed 4 was real, im just saying that they couldnt be negated by spell speed 3 cards.

    I know now how continuous effects work so its ok now. Im glad that the people who are reading my blog know more than myself :)

  7. Anthony will jizz over this when it becomes legal ;)

  8. He sure will. It will be the only time when jizzing on a unicorn is acceptable to be honest.

  9. This thing is beast once the opponets locked you can do whatever you want and all they can do is take it :) Negate!!!!!
