look at this card, pretty average huh? But look at the card closely again. If u still can't see any diffrences in this card, i suggest u should continue reading this review to learn how to unleash the full potential of this so-called "weak" card or creature.

Look at it's creature effect. firstly it cost 3 mana. The next effect which allows the controller to add the top card of his/her deck to the mana zone is the main point of this KEY card. Without that card effect, this card would be particularly useless.


Strengths/Pros:
Ok now for strengths of this so called particularly useless card. Now, think of it in this way.
imagine that u have got hold of the first turn.

1st turn charge mana and pass
2nd turn charge mana and activate fariee life
<now u have 3 mana >
3rd turn charge mana and summon bronze arm tribe and activates fariee life.

On the 3rd turn, the awesomeness of the card started. In the 3rd turn, u obtained 6 mana compared to your opponent who only got 2 mana. 1 mana extra for bronze arm tribe and 1 extra mana for fariee life. If you're really lucky, maybe u could activate another fariee life which brings u to 7 MANA IN JUST THE 3RD TURN !!


WARNING
This awesome combo can only be used if u're really freggin lucky


Weaknesses/Cons:
For weakness or Cons, i say we should skip this part because ...

DO YOU THINK YOUR OPPONENT WILL USE A DEADLY SHEILD TRIGGER ON A BRONZE ARM TRIBE !?

Okay i think its irrelevant about the text in red just above this sentence. But sometimes, its not worth to kill a bronze arm tribe. Its just a creature with 1000 power...
just let him live =(


Decks and Combos for Da Pros:

DECK 1 : Ballom deck
Ballom is a really common card in darkness decks. Destroying all creatures except for darkness. What made ballom decks disappointing is the 8 mana cost which slows ballom down. ever thought of a faster solution? Turn your pure darkness deck into
Nature/Darkness deck. Don't forget 4 bronze arms and 4 fariee lifes =D
For defense, sheild triggers are useful while stalling mana for ballom summon. Try 4 terror pits , 4 mana nexus for sheild spamming and don't forget 4 natural snares for defense too =D


DECK 2 :Wild soul deck
I realised that ever since the new series of wild soul appears, it gained popularity. I mean really popular.
FIRST you will be thinking, " What is Wild Soul?"
Wild Soul is a group of creatures with new style of playing, summoning creatures from mana zone.
Wild soul might be kind of overpowered, but don't forget im here not to promote Wild Soul decks but to spread the power of bronze arm tribes. For Wild Soul, you will need UNTAPPED MANA to summon the monsters from your mana zone. This is where bronze arm tribe comes in handy. Bronze arm tribe helps to store mana from the top card of deck to mana zone. What a player with a Wild soul deck would be expecting will be spamming mana. with the top card to mana, you might be lucky enough to throw a Wild Soul creature inside the mana zone.
TOO MUCH OF BRONZE ARM TRIBES INSIDE THE DECK COULD REALLY SPOIL IT. So maybe i will say 4 or 3 bronze arm tribes will be enough =D

Don't forget the "CARD" which acts like mana bonanza in Wild Soul deck.

And if i remember clearly, there is a fire card which makes all nature get speed attackers.
it costs 4 mana with a power of 2000


DECK 3 : An average nature deck
Now for the "average" nature deck. Normally and average nature deck is to pump mana and swarm high powered "stuffs" Bronze arm tribe is a must. Adding mana is the priority style of playing for nature decks.

JUST IN CASE YOUR ACE-CARD GOT CHARGED INTO THE MANA ZONE BY BRONZE ARM TRIBE, USE SOULSWAP OR CREST OF MOTHER !!

Artwork and aesthetics:
I think for artwork is not much of a problem. There are many re-prints of bronze arm tribe which gives u a selection to choose from. judging from this "SAMURAI" looking bronze arm tribe, i will give it a 8/10. I think thats the coolest looking card to me =D
<For bronze arm tribe of course =D>

Overall rating:
8 for the artwork , 10 for the awesomeness.


ENJOY THE GALLERY OF BRONZE ARM TRIBE =D

sometimes common cards might be really strong if u look at it at a different perspective




OR MAYBE... just using a SKILL i learn in yu-gi-oh

Cards like bronze arm tribe might look newbish but actually they play an important role in helping u to win the duel.

why bronze arms? This is such a basic card, so basic that people uses it more than faerie life. And anyone who has played this game realises its importance. for an amateur in dm like me who plays in real life, I have more or less 40 bronze arms, only second to my collection of terror pits. Do something more exquisite pls next time.

well, bronze arm is not a pathetic card, some peps might say that bronze arm might be lousy. Yes it might be particularly useless in some occasions but sometimes its the common card which starts the combo. Combos does not start instantly. Its usually backed up by something else. Im here to promote the goodness of bronze arm tribe trend.

my main purpose for this card review is not to showcase some badass cards but to promote the "OFTEN NEGLECTED" card <bronze arm tribe>

i don't like to double post, nor do I like to do anything other wise, but your "backfire" requires my response, so here it goes:

often neglected? You serious? How many decks out there spam bronze arm whenever they use water? I mean using bronze arm in a deck with green is as common as jenny and terror pit in a deck that uses black, cyber brain in one that uses blue and so on.

I never said it was pathetic in the way that it sucked. I mean it as...why do u need a review on it? this card is showcased by the many decks here in tco.

Common = balanced and well recieved and useful. That's it. Bronze is a great card. It makes many combo come true and it is required in many decks, not to mention its race has other cool creatures that makes it even better.

Suggestion here though, if u want to showcase some often neglected cards, go for something like courtney or dandy eggplant or colorful dance. there are truly superb cards out there that are simply burried.

Ja-ne


P.S. also need to point out, in ur deck type one with ballom, add "adequate" demon commands. Ballom doesn't evolve on bronze arm for all I know.

P.S.S. did u mention fight dual fang?

I tried many card combos with dandy eggplant and colorful dance before. They just served as something so called,"Search N Send To Grave" I could write a review about them.

But don't forget, I'm targeting at the "Players" at UK or perhaps America?
Thats why i will rather choose an "OFTEN NEGLECTED" card to showcase its talents.

Yes, u might think that bronze arm tribe is something not worth to argue about, but most importantly "some" english players are still not unleashing full potential and sticking to their So-Called "DRAGON DECK"

Or should i say this is just to motivate them with new styles of playing?

Hippo:

I then must apologize for not realizing ur target audience. True, it had become a habit of me to look at such common cards and think, well, who needs to know more about them? But surely there are some that does. As for your example of dragon decks...hm, isn't there a few dragon decks that rely on mana pump and accel rather than on cocco lupia?

about dandy eggplant and colorful dance, you got it so wrong pal. It is not just about the grave, it is about the mana as well. There are mana deck types that require certain cards to be in the mana zone, such as decks that uses sanctuary of mother or decks that likes spells in mana like the great MRC (with better tomorow). Yes, you have Mystic Treasure Chest and so on, but dandy eggplant can both target a card you want in mana within the deck and/or take a card you want into the grave. Colorful Dance takes that to the extreme, instead of targeting, it just sends 5 cards into mana then into grave. But get this, the if you only send the cards you tapped to cast Dance, you have at least 4 more mana (if the cards Dance put into mana is not multicolored). That means if you can, another Dance can be cast to do the same thing again, or you can do something else. 4 mana is quite a lot.

I don't think I have much more explaining to do?
