Before to start I would like to tell the story of Gorz.

As everyone knows the dark wizard and magician are dating until it appeared someone ... who believe it was??? For if thought matched Gorz.

Girlfriend of Gorz

Gorz rival

And as the dark magician did not want to end up with nothing, as Gorz command to kill the doctors did their best but stay well:


Well after that little intro ever before, now if I start with the review.

General description:

My second review this time from a card that most decks the form as often saves us from the defeat of grief and gives us the victory, Gorz has become a very important card to enhance any deck, the effect Gorz is very powerful and is as follows:


When you take damage from a card your opponent controls while you control no cards, you can Special Summon this card from your hand. Then activate the appropriate effect, based on the type of damage:
● Battle Damage: Special Summon 1 "Emissary of Darkness Token" (Fairy-Type/LIGHT/Level 7/ATK ?/DEF ?). It’s ATK and DEF is each equal to the amount of battle damage you took.
● Effect Damage: Inflict damage to your opponent equal to the damage you took.


Cuando tú tomas el daño de una carta que tu oponente controle, mientras mientras tú no controles cartas, puedes Invocar Especialmente esta carta de tu mano. A continuación, activar el efecto correspondiente, en función del tipo de daño:
● Daño de Batalla: Invocar Especialmente 1 "Emisario de la Oscuridad Token" (Fairy-Type/LIGHT/Level 7/ATK / DEF?). Su ATK y DEF son iguales a la cantidad de daño en combate que tuvo.
● Daño Efecto: Infligir daño a tu oponente igual al daño que tomó.
Su primer efecto es muy bueno ya que recibes daño pero a cambio tienes a gorz con un ataque de 2700 y con un token del valor del daño que recibiste


Here is part of the ruling

On Special Summoning Edit

If you control 1 monster and it is destroyed by "Ring of Destruction", you can activate the effect of "Gorz the Emissary of Darkness".[1]

If you have two or more "Gorz the Emissary of Darkness" in your hand when you receive damage, you can only activate the effect of one of them.[2]

Tragoedia: If you have both "Tragoedia" and "Gorz the Emissary of Darkness" in your hand, you cannot Special Summon both when you receive a direct attack. You can only activate one.[3]

Missing the Timing Edit

If you take damage in the middle of a chain, then you cannot activate the effect of "Gorz the Emissary of Darkness". Its effect cannot interrupt the resolution of a chain, and after the chain resolves, you have missed the timing to activate the effect.[4]

Against the Wind: The "inflict damage" and "add the monster to your hand" effects of "Against the Wind" are considered to resolve simultaneously. For example you can activate the effect of "Gorz the Emissary of Darkness" when you take damage from "Against the Wind". [sic][5][Notes 1]

Evil Thorn: For the effect of "Evil Thorn", "inflict 300 damage" and "Special Summon two "Evil Thorn" in face-up Attack Position" are considered to resolve simultaneously. After the effect resolves, your opponent can Special Summon "Gorz the Emissary of Darkness".[6]

The rest can be found on


Gorz is one of the most used cards as his ability to bring a token with the value of attack your opponent's monster is great and you win a monster and you could serve it to be slaughtered and more bring another attack, most decks use it because as dark can be removed from the graveyard and summon monsters like chaos sorcerer Black Luster soldier or, knowing that the token has level 7 which fits perfectly with the glow or the spore.

Strategies and game play:

Gorz is used as a card of ransom or to save the match as I call it as it normally low when is the last resort but is a resource that can resolve the grief.
it can be used in dark decks, sacrifices or Evil heros for their mergers or you can also revive to attack with or to protect you, you can reuse this card with compulsory to return it to your hand and if the attack is a little token you put in defense or use in a syhncro or a tribute, finally, Gorz is a card that fits perfectly in most decks.

Combos with other cards:

: D Its main combos is to use the same attack the opponent's monster to attack it with the token created.

: D Both Gorz as the token can be taxed to call monarchs, prime material dragon, or other monsters that often take advantage in the game.

: D The advantage given by the token is created by Gorz k is light, so it can be played with honest, i have the advantage Gorz k is k is dark, can be removed with allure.

: D Used as a cost to the chaos sorcerer or black luster soldier

: D If you have a dark monster in your field and you caius and removes it inflicts its effect you and how was your only card Gorz comes to save

: D Can be used as a cost to the creator or revivirese dark therewith.

: D Gorz is discarded to enter the dark greapher special and send a dark effect of the deck to the graveyard then invoke a Dark Armed Dragon and use its effect.

: D This combo is required to have at least 2 level bug eater into a cemetery and a tunner in hand, if you way down to two tuners in one turn better (eg Airbellum rescue cat = two) then we Gorz effect low and generates a token, that token like the stars will have 7 so that you begin your turn to remove the stars of the Gorz and the token to arrive eater level and then lower the tunner syncrho aces and if you can repeat the same and generate another syncrho, in so doing, Gorz can also be syncrho material because its level is already lower.

: D The next combo is for when the opponent is already very few points, activate the second effect of Gorz when they attack you and causes the same damage to you, then your turn to sacrifice your Gorz, and call a caius and to you remove it (if you do not have another dark field) to give 1000 damage.

Ways to counteract it:

Countering this card is very difficult due to arrive in damage calculation so that (according to rulings) you can not bottomless, torrential, the effect of "Thunder King Rai-Oh", "Black Horn of Heaven", "Solemn Judgment "

So some ways to overcome it are these:

: idea: Trap Dustshoot: this serves before Gorz is summoned to the field

: idea: Dark Hole: a look that is in the field in active mp2 dark hole and die Gorz

: idea: Mirror Force: one is the battle you see your opponent can use mirror and Gorz would kill not only if your token if it is found in attack

: idea: Chaoss sorcerer or Black Luster Soldier: If you have a dark and a light in the cemetery in mp2 sorcerer can bring luster black or apply its effect and Gorz dies.

: idea: Monsters Syncros more attack like x saber Gottoms, scrap dragon

: idea: Monsters with killing effect as scrap dragon, man-eater bug, master hyperion, gk descendant, etc.

: idea: debunk refuses Gorz the effect that activates in hand

: idea: Solemn warning

: idea: Evolzarr dolka


Large 2700 attack and defense of 2500 which are very high

A special invocaion saving us summon monsters taxed

Because of its effect may inflict direct damage to the opponent

Generates a token it can have a big attack depending on the move

Both the token as Gorz can be taxed to summon a monster.

Your invocation is for the damage so its invocation can not be denied except with Solemn Warning.

Level 7 is helping for many Syncros

The token level 7 summons is similarly being very useful for Syncros


It's level 7 which does not help to xyz

To be convened must take damage and if we lose but we estimate it usually does not happen




Artwork and aesthetics:

The card as I really like your image color is very cool armor and his coat is as if he were flying the playing field is very cool type of design, if you regard as your layer is like the special arrival and armor might be the shield to damage the opponent resives

Overall rating:

Gorz I give it a 8 since their attack and defense as well as its effects are very valuable and helpful
