I can foresee a Dogfight at the comment with me + some E HERO fan against the world, but I'm gonna write this anyway.
With the release of Parallel World Fusion, E HERO just got another toy to play with, not to mention another member in the form of The GREAT Tornado.
Let us take a look at Parallel World Fusion :
Return remove from play fusion material monsters you control to the deck/graveyard listed on an "E HERO" fusion monster and special summon that Fusion monster from the Extra Deck (this special summon is treated as a Fusion Summon). During the turn this card is activated, you cannot conduct a special summon.
yes, there is an unconfirmed info on this, as some site states graveyard while others states deck. I haven't seen the original card yet so bear with me!!
Why is this card so powerful?
If its just send to the grave, it means you can have a free summon while placing some cards such as NecroDarkman, Bolt Hedgehog or Treeborn Frog back into the grave. It helps you replenish your grave while summoning a big monster. If its back to the deck... well, Deep Sea Diva, Malicious, Airman and not to mention the E HERO fusion monsters(ZERO, Shining, Gaia and GREAT Tornado). You will think "Are they really limited to 3?"
This is just part of my point, I don't think many of you would notice but, E HERO (the mascot of Fusion Monsters) just gain access to a previously untouched area, the remove from play zone.
Let of take a look at Syncro monsters, they can preform a syncro summon on :
1. The field
2. The graveyard, although Vayu is the only tuner that can do that currently
3. The hand, partially in E Boy's case
so, technically, 3 areas.
Where as for fusion monster/E HERO :
1. The field
2. The Hand
3. The Graveyard
4. The deck (Future Fusion and Chain Material)
5. The Remove from play zone
6. Your opponent's field, thanks to Super Polymerization
6 bloody areas that they can perform fusion summon.
You could say that you need a specific card to fusion summon, as you need Polymerization, where as you can syncro summon with just about anything. Yes, you are right!! Compare to Syncro summoning, which is easily splashable into any deck, Fusion summon can only be perform in a certain deck. We can say that Syncro summon is an easy way to summon big powerful monsters that is available to everyone, while Fusion summon is a way to summon big powerful monsters for a selected few. No denial here....
So, basically that just make Syncro summon a Honda Civic, easily affordable if you have a steady income and you don't need to take care of it that much and you can let anyone drive it. Fusion summon is an Aston Martin DB9, not available to every one and you need to be careful when driving it or you'll die. Not a car you wanna let your girl friend or you mum bring to the shopping complex.
That is MY philosophy on the subject!!
Next we take a look at another thing, we Chinese players like to call this "魂" or spirit in direct translation. ... OK... thats a very bad translation. But it basically means coolness or something like that, can't really describe this as my descriptions are bad. Its those cards that let you basically start humming BGMs when you are about to draw your card, mainly when you really need them or you'll lose. For example, your opponent has Dark Armed on the field, and you have a Kaiser Seahorse. You draw, take a peek, Blue Eyes!!
E HERO has a ton of cards that fall into this category, and unlike most of the cards in this category, the E HERO ones really do works. Cards like Miracle Fusion, Super Polimerization, De-Fusion, Parallel World Fusion and Neos all fall under this category. Sadly, the new E HERO fusions don't!!
Why no Syncro monster is considered? Everyone can summon them. You summon Stardust, your opponent does the same, the kid at a few tables away does the same, the dude with the hair shaped like a crab does that in the anime every day.... you get what I mean.... A HEM!! YOU DO!!
lets make this simple. You would hear people saying "Wow, I wish I could drive that car one day. ITS SO COOOOOOL!!" whenever a DB9 passed by. But when a Proton (Stardust) passed by... you won't even notice it. Why? 90% of the cars we see are Proton builds, you could change the manufacturer to the ones you see the most everyday and you should understand.
