Theinen the Great Sphinx (Exclusive Pack)
part 3/4 Sphinx Combo Review

General description:
Well this is the third part and if this is not what you thought it would be and know anything about the sphinx combo then you probably know what comes next.

Use this card to destroy your opponent's life points with its whopping 3500 atack points. and when it's summoned you can give up 500 life points to make the cards atack power 6500 to wipe out you'r opponent but you have to be careful about this.

Strategies and game play:
Instead of using Pyramid of light and paying 1500 LP's minimum to get them out on the field you can sac 3 mons each to get them on the field then use dark hole, or other cards that do that like cyber jar to do that, then pay the bare minimum of 500 lifepoints to get thenin on the field

Combos with other cards:
not really any combos except for equip card to make this card invunrable to atack

Ways to counteract it:
oh so many ways to counter it, Sakaretsu Armor, Michizure, Raigeki Break, I could go on but I don't want to take up any more of your time than I already have.

this card is almost invunerable to attacks and can have up to 6500 atack points and will KILL your opponents life points quickly unless he/she can counter him quickly

it is very vunerable to magic and traps
youHAVE to pay at least 500 life points to summon this card

The sphinx combo can only come in in the movie pack

Artwork and aesthetics:
I personally think that this is the most interesting picture on a beast type monster yet. It is litterally a mix of Sphinx Telia, and Andro Sphinx with a Centaur Aspect of Andro Sphinx as the Human part and the lower body from Sphinx Telia the artwork is Pretty and will lok good in your hand

Overall rating:
I like this card and is the crushing power of the Sphinx Combo 8.2/10

Uh what do you mean " sac 3 each" ? Both Andro and Teleia require 2 tributes. each, not 3. Do you not know the rules?
