:General description:
Mobius the Frost Monarch is an excellent card for any deck. Tribute 1 monster for him and you now have a 2400 attacker that allows you to destroy up to 2 traps of magic cards on the field.

:Uses:
I put 2 of him in my water deck that has alot of special summonings. I can get him out as soon as I pull him. His effect has wiped out my friends traps from Magic Cylinder to thier Mirror Force.

:Strategies and game play:
Tribute for him and you can destroy up to 2 magic or trap card on the field. This means that you might get rid of a trap card that could end the duel. It can also level the playing field by destroying Mage Power, United We Stand and any other equipment cards. It also has a 2400 attack power to really do damage to other monsters.

:Combos with other cards:
Treeborn Frog + Mobius= If you have no magic and trap cards on your field during your standby phase, you can special summon your Treeborn Frog from your graveyard giving you a perfect tribute for your Mobius the Frost Monarch.
Mobius + A Legendary Ocean= A Legendary Ocean downgrades all water monsters in the hand by 1 star, and increases thier attack and def by 200. With A Legendary Ocean on the field Mobius becomes a 2600 attacker with 5 stars so you can still get his tribute acivated effect.

:Ways to counteract it:
Bottomless traphole, Divine Wrath his effect, Skill Drain before he hits the field. There are only a few ways to stop his effect.

:Strengths/Pros:
He can destroy up to 2 magic or trap cards. He has a 2400 attack. He is easy to get out. His effect can only be stopped by a few effects.

:Weaknesses/Cons:
He only has a 1000 defense. His effect does not activate if he is summoned any other way but tribute summoned.

:Variations:
Ultimate Rare SOD, Super Rare SOD, Common SD4.

:Artwork:
The artwork is awesome. The title of Frost Monarch fits the picture perfectly. As for his effect tieing into the artwork he can freeze the the magic and trap cards to destroy them.

:Overall rating:
In a Beatdown Deck 9/10
In a Water Deck 8/10
In a Trap Removal Deck 10/10
In a General Deck 7/10
I a summoning Deck 9/10

You should also mention combos with other cards such as brain control, snatch steal, and soul exchange, tributing your opponents monster and getting mobius on the field. Also you can actually chain skill drain to mobius' effect and negate it, it doesn't have to be active on the field before mobius is summoned. Other than that nice review

Here is an example situation that needs to be cleared up with mobius because alot of ppl think BTH stops his effect but it doesn't:

Player A Tribute Summons Mobius the Frost Monarch and selects a face down Sakuretsu Armor and a face down Bottomless Trap Hole.

Player B Chains Bottomless to the Summoning. So now that Mobius is removed, is the Face down Sakuretsu Still destroyed or does it remain on the field?

Answer: Mobius has still been summoned successfully, so its effect activates. Destroying Mobius will not stop his effect from resolving and destroying the selected cards. Mobius would still be removed from play after he destroys these 2 cards.

It is similar in how chaining MST will not stop Raigeki from resolving, even though it destroys Raigeki.

Only way to negate his effect is by Solemn Judgment, Horn of Heaven, Royal Oppression, Divine Wrath, etc.
