card review Wedding, Zenith of 'Celebration': The real pawner.
Wedding, Zenith of "Celebration"
The real pawner.
written by dawriterman
" You say banning me was bad? Why..It just made me cooler.." - Bolmeteus Sapphire Dragon.
" Little things have Big ambitions.." - Pakurio
White Knight HEAVEN, Lord of Spirits
"Can't Take my intensity? Then Get Lost!!" - White Knight HEAVEN, Lord of Spirits.
Speed attacker and Evolution
And we get..Wedding, Zenith of Celebration
" Come, Celebrate my Victory with me..Oh sorry, you're already toast!" - Wedding, Zenith of Celebration.
And so, the birth of an amazing creature took place.
Currently, no variations of Wedding have been released. The only set in which Wedding, Zenith of Celebration is available as of now is DMR-06, also known as, Episode 2: Victory Rush. It is one of the 5 Super Rares in the set, with its collector number being S2.
Artwork and aesthetics:
Instead of describing it's artwork, i would like to post something written by Waileuk Wu which aptly describes how Wedding was born from Urth, Purifying Elemental, and also describes it. Kudos to him for such an amazing description.
And from the heavens came music, of some could easily recognize.
Felix Mendelson’s Wedding March.
One by one, the defeated Angel Commands raised their heads from shame and cast their eyes upon the stars. There, something white descended.
Like the morning star it came, glorious and radiant. White was its color, brilliant and noble. With each bar of harmonic resonance, it hummed with passion, with anticipation, like a groom waiting for its bride, like violin’s bow eager for to touch that string of which it belongs. Yes, the world is his.
For it came to celebrate, to celebrate the death of its enemy. It carried with it a blessing, one that meant prosperity for its own kind, and doom for those who dare defies it. A Guillotine sat in its gardens waiting for the traitor that sold its own pride for mere friendship.
The Angel Commands sang as its presence approached them, for it was once an Angel too. Three pairs of wings it had, one curled as a dress, one raise to be the pauldron, and one to form that helmet of which a single eye peeked through.
In its arms carried four shields, plates of forge platinum that drifted about, covering its slender bodies and the emerald tristones that glistened in its waist. White metal, fanning out like feathers formed the wedding gown it so promptly wears.
Yet, if one takes away its clothing, one could observe the way those tristones aligned. Yes, it is in form of a cross, a cross where the rainbow so carefully licked. Violet hips, sapphire waist, emerald thorax, golden shoulders, finished with a crimson gem of which it watches. From these stones that marked its race, came ring upon rings of lines. Five lines per one, they appear as noteless scores that brought about the grand themes of which grandmasters composed years ago.
A lonely halo decorated its back, but it was inscripted with an ancient tongue, one that spoke of old glory and lost honors of which this transcendency meant. It was an Angel, but now forsaken its earthly title. It is an Unknown, seeking something beyond the knowledge of its er. It is a Zenith, one that had climbed above all else.
Someone uttered its name.
“Wedding, the Zenith of ‘Celebration’. ”
It replied, voice like great chimes of bells.
“May the ceremony begin.”
And then, there was great jubilee.

Wedding, Zenith of Celebration
Wedding is generally used as a finisher in decks. It removes your opponents hand and his field, sending them to the shield zone, and then burning the shields when it breaks them.
As Wedding, has this amazing effect which can send cards from your opponents hand to your shields, it is used in Hand Control decks ( i.e. decks which focus around limiting your opponents hand, to prevent him from doing much ) in conjunction with Aqua Slash and Pakurio.
An example of such a type of deck would be Fragut Negure's [ Deified_Cupcake ] deck.
The unique thing about the deck is that it revolves around Hand control without Darkness using Slash, Wedding and Pakurio.
Another potential way to use Wedding would be to use it in conjunction with Forever Princess, An Eternity to Rule Them and Fortification against Barrage and Ambush as a finisher.
One of the best examples of such a deck would be Subham Mukherjee's [ Subking ] deck.
This deck became a deck of the week and it contains a self explaining summary, so I don't need to explain how it works.
And lastly, another way in which Wedding can potentially be used is in a deck with Memories of the Planetary Dragon and Marshal Queen. However, this will be explained later in the strategy section.
Strategies and game play:
Now, you should look to "Summon" Wedding rather than "Putting" it in the battle zone to make use of it's first effect. This section will try to show the various ways in which you can summon and put Wedding to the battle zone. These are the following ways.
1. Mana Acceleration
The traditional way to summon a creature with high cost early is to get insane amount of mana quickly. As Mana accel is best done by Nature cards the following cards can help you get to 11 mana quick, so that you can summon Wedding.
Faerie Life - Put top card into mana. Simple. Shield trigger adds to fun.
" Sacrifice is the way of life.."
Jasmine, Mist Faerie - Destroy the creature and put top card into mana. Great synergy with Hustle Castle.
" If my death brings about something better, so be it!" - Jasmine, Mist Faerie.
Lifeplan Charger - Look at Top 5 cards, choose one, put it to hand. Being a charger, spell goes to mana. Great card to charge mana and get Wedding at the same time.
" Failing to plan is Planning to Fail.."
Bronze-Arm Tribe - Top card to mana on summon.
" Bronze..I'd rather be called Green or Purple you know.." - Bronze-Arm Tribe.
Seventh Tower - Top card to mana. Metamorph - If you have 7 or more mana put the top 3 cards to mana.
"The tower of beauty.."
Living Lithograph - Top card to mana, If it is a creature, your creatures get +2000 power. More Turn 2 accel.
" Life is divine. So is power.."
Zenith Plan - Reveal top two cards. Cards which have cost more than 7 go to hand, rest go to mana. Another great card, to get Wedding or some big creature to hand and accelerate mana as well.
" It's time to bring our plan into action.." - Wedding, Zenith of "Celebration"
Quatro Fang, Soul Gang Leader - A Psychic card which allows you to put a card to mana at the beginning of your turn before drawing.
"Leading to victory.." - Quatro Fang, Soul Gang Leader.
There are many more cards in the Nature Civilization which can help you to get more mana like Timeless Garden, Dreaming Moon Knife, Ascendant Wing - Faerie Accelerator, Poisonous Mushroom etc. etc. So basically the plan is, Mana Ramp and summon Wedding. Simple but most often effective.
2. Cost Reduction
Due to the races that Wedding has ( Unknown and Zenith ) It has great support in cost reduction. Also, as it is a colorless creature, It got more support with the release of DMR-07. The different race based and civilization based support Wedding has is as follows :-
King Acer, Zondag Giant and Yosakoi, Leader of Spirits - They reduce the costs of Unknowns by one and Zeniths by one. So Weddings cost is reduced by 2.
" Prepare yourself, the Zeniths are coming.."
Messa Danjiri Dragon - It reduces the cost of Unknowns by 1 and gives them speed attacker too. Nothing like an instant wedding shield burn right?
" My help will be the key to the victory of the Unknowns.." - Messa Danjiri Dragon
Necrodragon Onbashi Raon - This is an amazing support creature as it reduces the cost of Unknowns by 1 and Zeniths by 2. So Wedding's cost gets reduced by 3. Only downside is , you destroy this creature whenever a creature with both Unknown and Zenith races is put to the battle zone.
" The forces of the Zeniths came to the creature world due to the sacrifices of a large number of creatures.."
Golden Key, Messenger of "Zenith" - Your Zenith creatures cost 3 less.
" The reason the zeniths are all-knowing is because they have some able spies in even the highest groups of all civilizations.."
Codeking Waldstein - Your Zenith creatures Cost 2 less.
" The coming of the Zeniths will end all suffering.." - Codeking Waldstein.
Zero Lupia - Your colorless cards cost 2 less.
" Chirp Chirpppp.." - Zero Lupia.
Prelude of Horror - Your next colorless creature costs 5 less.
" You think this is powerful..Wait till you see what follows.."
Fairy Gift - Your next creature costs 3 less.
" The gift of the Fairies is supposed to be the most precious gift in the Creature Realm.."
3. Zenith Symphony, Secret Zenith
" The lords descended with a grace undescribable with mere words.."
This spell was released also in DMR-06 and is an Attack Chance spell, i.e. , you can cast it whenever a creature of the specified race attacks. In this case, the race is Unknown. The effect of the spell is, whenever it is casted, you may summon a creature with Both of the Unknown and Zenith Races for free. Notice two keywords here, the creature should be of BOTH Unknown and Zenith Races and it is SUMMONED. Hell Yeah! An effective way of summoning Wedding with 7 mana, using any of the following creatures:-
Codename Bazagaze Ragon - It is a speed attacker, so attack with it in the same turn, having both Wedding and Zenith Symphony in hand. You rock !!
"Hell fire!! Consume all.." - Codename Bazagaze Ragon
Codename Oreore Lionel - Attack, use Zenith Symphony to get Wedding, Play Hardcore Judge, Win and get a blocker. How tough is that? Lol. Can be made a speed attacker with the help of Messa Danjiri Dragon. Also can be put into battle zone with 6 mana using Heaven's Gate as it is a blocker
"The Unique power of the Unknowns was their uncanny ability to summon allies from nowhere.."
Codename Build Leone - It has a great effect of sending one of your opponents non evolution creature to shields on attacking. And as it is an unknown, you can cast Zenith Symphony for free and thus summon Wedding. Build Leone is also a blocker, so an easy way to put it in the battle zone is by using Heaven's Gate.
" Go back where you came from!" - Codename Build Leone.
Codename Buffer Leodole - Another Angel Command/Unknown with blocker, so can be put to the battle zone by Heaven's Gate.. Additional effect that it gives a new shield if you win Gachinko Judge while attacking or blocking.
"You can't get through my defenses.." - Codename Buffer Leodole.
There are other Unknowns too which can be used like Codename Oraora Leone, Truename Paw Lion, Truename Lalala Lionel, Codename Orewaleo , Destiny Meteor of Fate etc. etc.
So it's no doubt a nice way of summoning Wedding, and many decks can be made on this combo.
4. Memories Marshal
This is a meta worthy deck which utilizes the effects of two very awesome cards.
Memories of the Planetary Dragon - This spell makes all your shields "shield triggers".
" If the Memories of the Planetary Dragon are so strong, just think how strong the planetary dragon was.."
Marshal Queen - Evolution on Splash Queens. You put three cards from your hand to the shield zone, and return three cards from the shield zone, using any shield triggers which you might get.
"The one mistake that people do is underestimating the Queen.."
I'm sure after reading the above two effects, you'll know why this combo is so incredible and a very effective way of summoning Wedding. You can cast Memories of the Planetary Dragon, and then evolve Marshal Queen in the next turn ( Memories works for two turns ). Place Wedding and two other cards to shields, take them back, they have shield trigger now. Summon them and make your opponent cry. The two good things about this combo would be that Wedding gets Summoned and it also gets summoned for Free. So, yet another effective way of summoning Wedding.
Note, however that a new ruling decreases the awesomeness of this combo. According to the new ruling, Memories only works on preexisting shields. However, As where there is a will, there is a way, you can place Wedding to the shields by
Emeral - Place a card from hand to shield and then a card from shields to hand. Can't use any shield triggers which you might have got.
" Tactics is the way of the day.." - Emeral.
Aqua Super Emeral - Same effect as Emeral, just has 1000 more power, isn't restricted, has cost 3 instead of 2 and liquid people as race instead of cyber lord.
" Your clones are ready my lord.." - Tron.
With the help of the above cards, you can place Wedding to shields and then using Memories you can make it a shield trigger. Once you do that, summon Marshal, put some cards from hand to shields, take the same number back, taking care to take the shield with Wedding back, and Hey Presto! Your pawning creature appears in the battle zone!
5. Putting Wedding
And finally, you may just put Wedding to the battle zone. If you do this, you lose out on the first ability, but then again, you gain a triple breaking shield incinerator in the battle zone which is never bad, mind you. Now the many different ways of putting Wedding would be:-
Soulswap [ Banned ] - This spell lets you put a put a creature to the owner's mana zone and then choose a non-evolution creature from the owner's mana zone with cost equal to or less than cards in mana zone and put it to the battle zone. To get Wedding from mana, you need at least 10 cards in mana ( you get the 11th card when you put a creature from battle zone to mana ). So Nature/Water decks with mana accel and draw is the preferred civilization combo.
"Mhm..Haven't eaten any souls for some time.."
Crest of Mother [ Banned ] - Another spell which makes you choose a civilization and put a creature of that civilization from the battle zone and place it to mana zone. Then choose a creature from the owner's mana zone with cost equal to or less than cards in mana zone and put it to the battle zone. You need to have atleast 10 cards in mana to summon Wedding using Crest, so W/N decks could be the preferred way to go about it.
"Help the Mother earth..And she'll help you back.."
Inferno Gate [ Banned ] - This lets you put a non-evolution creature from grave to your battle zone. Great, if you have Wedding in your grave.
"Respect the dead, or they may come back and haunt you.."
An Alternative for Inferno Gate would be Babelginus, Demonic Dragon - This creature is neither banned nor restricted. When you put this creature into the battle zone, you may choose a player and destroy one of their creatures, then put a non evolution creature other than Babelginus, Demonic Dragon from grave to battle zone.
"So what, if you die..the soul lives on.."
You can put Wedding to the grave by using cards like Slash Charger, Bone Dance Charger, Emergency Typhoon, Atsuto, Duel Hero Strategist, Deepsea Typhoon, etc. etc.
Another way of putting Wedding to the battle zone is by using a
A MiraMisu deck utilizes the effects of two spells, namely
Hogan Blaster - Shuffle deck, reveal top card, if it is a spell, cast it for free, if it is a creature, put it in the battle zone without cost.
" There's something called riding your luck after all.."
Door of Miracle and Mystery - Reveal top 4 cards, Your opponent choose a creature from among them and puts it to the battle zone.
"There's a certain pleasure in making your opponent choose his doom.."
So, you may either put Wedding by using Hogan Blaster's effect or you may put Wedding with Door's effect [ If your opponent is kind/foolish or if you get Wedding and 3 spells ]. This does depend a lot on luck, but then so do all MiraMisu decks.
So these are the some of the ways, with which you can Put Wedding in the battle zone. Though, it is really not recommended you do that, because if you do, you lose out on the valuable field/hand removal effect. Also most of the cards above were banned and are unuseable unless you use a Hybrid deck. Well up to you really, if you really want to get a 13000 triple breaking shield incinerator, then so be it.
End of Strategies section, on to combos.
Combos with other cards:
There are a number of combos with Wedding, some of which have been discussed already. However, some of the awesome combos are:-
1. Zenith Requiem
"When the Zeniths attack, all that's left is destruction.."
A 12 cost spell. Don't get unhappy because of the cost, because it has Attack Chance: Zenith, so whenever you Zenith attacks you can cast this spell. And of course, Wedding is a Zenith. And what does the spell do you might ask? Well, it doesn't do much.. just gives +50000 power, World Breaker ( Break all of your opponents shields ) and the ability of untapping each time a battle is won. So you get a lawn mowing, World breaker, shield burner, which untaps when it wins a battle, so basically Unblockable Wedding. Nothing much right? This spell is one of the most powerful combos with Wedding. The ways in which you can use the spell would be :-
Having Messa Danjiri Dragon, you summon Wedding and remove some creatures or some cards from your opponents battle zone and hand. Now Wedding gains speed attacker with Messa's effect, attack, cast Zenith Requiem, gain World breaker, incinerate all shields, Messa for todomeda. Amazing right?
Another alternative will be summon Codename Bazagaze Ragon, having Messa in battle zone, attack an untapped creature with Bazagaze's effect, cast Zenith Symphony, bring out Wedding, Wedding attacks with Messa's effect, cast Zenith Requiem, Wedding World incinerate ( like this term ) and Messa todomeda.
Alternatively, you can use Destiny, Meteor of Fate
" Destiny..Another word for the Zeniths will.." - Destiny, Meteor of Fate.
Destiny's effect lets you take a colorless card from your deck on putting. Thus you can get either Wedding or Symphony or Requiem. Then if you have Messa in the battle zone, you can just attack with Destiny, trigger Zenith Symphony, summon Wedding, trigger effect, then attack with Wedding, trigger Requiem, World Incinerate and then Messa todomeda. Just how hard is that.
Yet another way of using Requiem with Wedding would be in a Heaven's Gate deck utilizing Diamond Aven, Spirit of Awakening's effect.
Heaven's Gate - Put two non-evolution Light creatures with blocker into the battle zone.
"The gate for eternal supremacy opens, the enemies cower away in fear.."
Diamond Aven, Spirit of Awakening - When you put this creature to the battle zone, ignore any effects that would prevent your other creatures from attacking.
"The power of Aven spread throughout the army, all wounds were healed, and new energy filled the battalion.."
Diamond Aven is a blocker, so you can put it in the battle zone with Heaven's Gate. As you can put another blocker with Heaven's Gate effect, you may choose any Light non evolution blocker with the race Unknown in your hand. Some good choices would be Codename Build Leone, Codename Oreore Lionel etc. However, one card which you can summon to build up an insane combo would be
Truename Orekoso Foxstar - When you put this creature in the battle zone, you may cast a spell with "Heaven's" in its name from your hand without cost.
"An army is what we need, an army is what we will get.." - Truename Orekoso Foxstar
So put Orekoso, cast a second Heaven's, bring out two more blockers, they lose their summoning sickness with Aven's effect. Attack with any one of the blockers having the race Unknown, cast Zenith symphony, bring out Wedding, use Wedding's effect, Attack with Wedding, Cast Zenith Requiem, World Incinerate, and then make your opponent cry.
Just an amazing combo.
This looks pretty awesome theoretically, but it is usually very tough to get such a big hand to have all the required cards. However, i think the following cards can help you to draw the required cards.
Crystal Memory - Search for a card from your deck, put it in your hand and shuffle your deck.
Barrock's Miracle Fever - Name a card. Then, reveal cards from the top of your deck until you reveal the named card. Put all the revealed cards into your hand.
Dimension Gate - Search your deck for a creature, reveal it and take that creature to your hand.
Heaven's Cube - Search your deck for a spell, reveal it and take it to your hand.
Seige Network of Knowledge - Reveal a card from your hand. Draw the same number of cards as the cost of that card.
"The Zeniths are Cominggggg.."
2. Pepper Silva of Betrayal, Eternal Meteor Kaiser and Eureka Program
Pepper Silva of Betrayal - When this creature is destroyed, you may put a Non-Evolution Unknown from your hand to your battle zone.
" After using the spies to gain entry to the creature realm, the zeniths eliminated each and every one of them.."
Eureka Program - Destroy one of your non-psychic creatures. Then, reveal cards from the top of your deck until you reveal a creature whose cost is exactly one more than the cost of the destroyed creature. You may put that creature into the battle zone. Then, shuffle your deck.
"The chances of success are 100.1%.." - Cyber G Hogan.
Pepper costs 7. So you can destroy it with Eureka Program and using its effect put Wedding from your hand to the battle zone. Now, you lose the removal effect but you are about to gain something bigger. Using Eureka Program's effect, you keep on revealing top card until you reveal a cost 8 creature. And suppose that the only cost 8 creature in your deck is
Eternal Meteor Kaiser - All your creatures gain speed attacker, your opponents creatures are put into the battle zone tapped, and whenever this cad is discarded from your hand, you may put it into the battle zone instead. A Truly mind-boggling card.
"The end already, Aww..I hadn't even warmed up.." - Eternal Meteor Kaiser.
Therefore, Wedding gains speed attacker and attacks incinerating three shields. If by any chance, you also have Requiem in hand, Wedding World Incinerates and then EMK todomeda. Your opponent's Ninja Strike blocker cards won't work as well, because they will be put tapped in the battle zone due to Eternal Meteor Kaiser's effect.
3. Last Avatar, Poseidon Dragon Spirit
- When a card is added to a player's Shield Zone, that player chooses one of their Shields and puts it into their Graveyard.
"Last chance for redemption.."
If you have this card in your battle zone, When you summon Wedding and your opponent chooses cards from his hand and/or battle zone and puts them to shields, he loses all the shields that he gets. And then if you can make Wedding a speed attacker using, cards like
Whirlwind Tailspin - Your next creature costs 1 less and gains speed attacker.
Whirlwind Slash - All your creatures in the battle zone gain speed attacker.
or Messa Danjiri Dragon, Eternal Meteor Kaiser etc. You can attack with Wedding that turn, incinerating three shields in the same turn, possibly leaving your opponent shield less and open to a todomeda or almost shieldless thus letting you get the game next turn.
4. Codename Hungry Elegance - Whenever your opponent draws a card, you may put the top card to mana. You may summon Unknowns from mana.
" Hungry, Hungryy, Hungryyy for Moreeee.." - Codename Hungry Elegance.
If your deck focuses around mana acceleration to bring out Wedding, and you don't have a Wedding your hand but have one in your mana, you can use this card to summon it from your mana. Also very useful as whenever your opponent draws you can accelerate mana and your opponent will draw at least once, at the beginning of his/her turn.
5. World War Zenith - This spells cost is reduced by 2 for every creature with both the Unknown and Zenith Races. Destroy all creatures which do not have the Unknown Race.
" The attack of the Zeniths started with a massive explosion incinerating half of their enemies battalion.."
The spell's cost gets reduced by 2 due to Wedding. Excellent Mass removal, which doesn't touch Wedding as there are only a few creatures with the Unknown race.
This spell's cost can also be reduced by using
Franz the 1st, The Ice Fang - All your spells cost 1 less to cast.
"The Knights were said to be excellent conjurers.."
6. "Unknown" Race support
As Wedding is an Unknown, it gains the support that Unknowns has. So cards which can have combos with Wedding would be :-
Thumbtack Man - When you put an Unknown into the battle zone, you may destroy this creature. If you do, destroy one of your opponent's tapped creatures.
Shibake Lupia - When you put an Unknown into the battle zone, you may destroy one of your opponent's creatures with power 4000 or less.
Mouse Sittrain, Express Machine - When you put an Unknown into the battle zone, you may draw a card.
Katchikachi Itchikatchizu ( incredibly tough spelling ) - When you put an Unknown into the battle zone, you may add a creature from your mana zone as a new shield into the shield zone face down.
" Little help can be of big consequence.."
7. "High Cost" Support
As Wedding has a high cost ( Obviously Cost 11 is high ) It gets some support from cards released in DMR-06. These are :-
Moel, Lovely Ogre Sniper - When you put this creature or a creature with a cost of 7 or more into the battle zone, destroy one of your opponent's creatures with power 4000 or less.
Onizou Ambush - When you put this creature or a creature with a cost of 7 or more into the battle zone, choose one of your opponents creatures in the battle zone. This turn, that creature gets -2000 power.
Escape Fiat, Shock Machine Equipment - When you put this creature or a creature with a cost of 7 or more, you may draw a card.
"Quality is important..Not Quantity.."
8. Galaxy Blade, The FINAL [ A fun combo ] - A Crossgear which gives the crossed creature +12000 power and when the crossed creature attacks you may give it "Galaxy Breaker" until the end of that attack. (A creature with Galaxy Breaker breaks all of the opponent's shields. Then after that attack break all of your shields.)
"Some Weapons do as much Collateral Damages as they do to your opponent.."
As Weddings effect states, your opponent puts a shield broken by Wedding to the grave instead of his hand, Wedding won't burn your own shields , as your shields don't go to your opponents hand. A Fun combo with which you may give your opponent a glimmer of hope before extinguishing it. Also can be used if you don't get Zenith Requiem in hand. You can cross Galaxy Blade, The FINAL for relatively lower cost by crossing Wedding with
Holy Gear - Nebula Wing - The crossed creature gains +1500 power and other crossgears can be crossed to the crossed creature without any cost.
"Awake the power of weapons.."
Again a fun combo, but can be used to summon cards like
Gabriella, Holy Princess - Gravity Zero: If you have no shields and no other [Gabriella, HolyPrincess] in your battle zone you may summon this creature without cost.
When your opponent would win the game by attacking with one of their creatures, you may destroy this creature. If you do, your opponent doesn't win the game, and your opponent's creatures can't attack this turn. At the end of your next turn you lose the game.
"No, Ballom I won't let you kill Lord Alcadeias.." - Gabriella, Holy Princess.
So do your best. Any new combos you may think of, please tell me.
That's all for combos, On to Counteractive measures.
Ways to counteract it:
The normal counterattacking cards like
1. Destruction - Terror Pit
"The Terror of your dreams.."
2. Slayers - Pierr, Psycho Doll
"Psychotic and me? Hmm sounds about right.." - Pierr, Psycho Doll.
3. Bounce - Aqua Surfer
"Return whence you came from.." - Aqua Surfer.
4. Mana Sending - Natural Snare
"The Mother Earth unleashes her fury on all who defy her.."
These removals don't really work because all they do is give temporary relief. Wedding's Eternal Omega effect makes it return to the hand if it leaves the battle zone and unless your opponent really likes being tortured or likes facing Wedding's Wrath multiple times [ Or is just a fool ], he wouldn't use these removals.
The real counterattacks to Wedding would be
Perfect Madonna, Light Weapon - With the release of DMX-08, one of the best defensive cards, Madonna made her entry to Duel Masters. She just won't leave the battle zone unless her power is reduced to 0. And as Wedding, doesn't make any reduction in her power, she can continue to remain in the battle zone and block Weddings attacks to prevent her from incinerating your opponents shields. And she won't leave the battle zone even on losing the battle against Wedding. Nice huh?
"Cheers to eternal life.." - Perfect Madonna, Light Weapon.
And if your opponent uses
Codefight Alibi Trick - Whenever one of your opponent's creature gets tapped, you may untap one of your creatures.
"Cheers to Eternal Supremacy.." - Codefight Alibi Trick.
Using Alibi Trick and Madonna, your opponent can create a sort of Infinite Block and block all of Weddings attacks, even if it gains the ability "Whenever this creature wins a battle, untap it" and +50000 power due to Zenith Requiem. So the small Madonna really pawns the might Wedding.
Another card which your opponent can use to defend himself against Wedding would be the awesome
Perfect Galaxy, Spirit of Immortality - Shield Force (When you put this creature into the battle zone, you may choose one of your shields. While the chosen shield remains in the shield zone, this creature gains the following abilities.)
This creature gains "Blocker". When this creature would leave the battle zone, it stays in the battle zone instead.
"It's said that the secret of Immortality can be obtained if your defeat Perfect Galaxy in battle. The problem is how to defeat someone who knows the secret.."
Using, Perfect Galaxy's Shield Force it won't be removed from the battle zone with Wedding's effect and can again continue to block Wedding till the chosen shield remains in the shield zone. And Infinity Block can be used with Alibi. But suppose that the chosen shield is something like..
Silver Glory, Invincible Fortress - Your creatures win all battles. If the fortified shield isn't fortified by any other fortresses, whenever the fortified shield would be broken by your opponent's creatures, you may return 1 of your other shields to your hand instead.
"One of the five legendary treasures of the Light realm..and the most fiercely guarded one.."
So, that would mean Perfect Galaxy would be able to destroy Wedding even if it is boosted with Zenith Requiem. To think of it any small critter blocker will be able to destroy Wedding. But then again destroying Wedding isn't really a good option because it can be summoned again. Oh well, if you can win the game in the next turn, it wouldn't really matter right. good thing, Perfect Galaxy is restricted to 1.
Then again, your opponent might have something like
Galaxy, Temporal Immortal / King of Galaxy, Destruction Awakened - When this creature would leave the battle zone, flip it instead [ Meaning Awaken it instead ]/ All your other creatures have blocker.
"Oh my God..Perfect Galaxy's father has come!!.."
So, instead of losing, you benefit from Wedding's effect and then if all of your other creatures have blocker, and you have Silver Glory, just imagine the trolling you'd do.
Chakra, Temporal Thunder Dragon/ Great Chakra, The Storm Awakened - Holy Field (If your opponent doesn't have more shields than you, this creature has its ability.) Awaken - At the start of your turn, flip this card. / Holy Field (If your opponent doesn't have more shields than you, this creature has its ability.) All of your creatures with "Blocker" have their attack prevention effects negated. (However, this effect doesn't negate summoning sickness.)Release (Whenever this creature would leave the battle zone, flip it instead.)
"The Great Thunder Dragon, finally appeared and helped the Light realm to overcome the Zeniths.."
As you'll probably have more shields than your opponent due to Wedding's effect, you can use that to awaken Chakra, to block Weddding's attacks. If Wedding gets resummoned, you can just release Chakra and awaken him again.
Rumble, Temporal Sage / Rumble Lector, Terror Awakened - Awaken: At the start of your turn, name a card. Look at the bottom of your deck. If the named card is on the bottom of your deck, show it to your opponent, shuffle your deck, and flip this card. / Whenever this creature would battle, destroy the other creature instead of battling. Release (Whenever this creature would leave the battle zone, flip it instead.)
"Terror Pit was just a toy it used to play with.."
Rumble Lector has one of the best removing effects, in which you just need to make Rumble battle a creature and the other creature gets destroyed instead of battling. And if you can make Rumble a blocker using King of Galaxy's effect, all you need is to block Wedding even if it is boosted with Requiem and finish it. Next turn, go for the win.
But then again, Prevention is always better than cure. To Prevent Wedding from appearing in the battle zone, you can use :-
King Alcadeias, Holy Gaia [ Banned ] - When your opponent puts a non-multicolored creature to the battle zone, instead of the battle zone it is put into the graveyard.
"Go away weaklings.." - King Alcadeias, Holy Gaia
Too bad it is banned, but you can use it to prevent Wedding from entering the battle zone as it is not a multicolored creature.
Other ways would be to put Wedding to the grave using the Slash Trio.
Slash Charger [ Banned ] - Search a player's deck. You may take a card from that deck and put it into that player's graveyard.
Future Slash [ Banned ] - Search your opponent's deck. Take up to 2 cards from his deck and put them into his graveyard. Then your opponent shuffles his deck.
Hell Slash [ Banned ] - Search your opponent's deck. Take up to 3 cards from his deck and put them into his graveyard.
" Enemies??I don't see any.."
Just put all your opponent copies of Wedding into the grave from his deck. But too bad the slash trio is banned too.
However, what isn't banned is discarding Wedding from your opponents hand before it appears in the battle zone. You can do this by using
Jenny, the Dismantling Puppet - When you put this creature into the battle zone, look at your opponent's hand and choose a card from it. Your opponent discards that card.
"Her blades can cut through your dreams.."
Jenny, Suicide Doll - When you put this creature into the battle zone, you may destroy it. If you do, randomly discard a card from your opponent's hand.
"Instead of destroying myself for something good, why not destroy myself for something evil.." - Jenny, Suicide Doll.
Other discarding cards would be Ghost Touch, Zabi Barrel, Western Doll, Kitarou, the cursed corpse, Ghost Panish etc. etc.
You could also use Mana burn so that your opponent doesn't get to the eleven mana required to summon Wedding. Mana burning cards would be
Mana Crisis - Choose a card from your opponent's mana zone and put it to his grave.
" No energy means death.."
Reap and Sow - Put top card to mana then choose one of your opponents mana and put it to grave.
"The transfer of energy shifts the balance of the battlefield.."
Other mana burning cards would be Drill Squall, Metal, Dragon God, Uberdragon Bajula etc. etc.
That's the end of counter attacks. On to Strengths/ Weaknesses and Rating.
1. Field and Hand removal.
2. Shield Incinerator.
3. High versatility.
5. Lots of support.
6. Insane combos.
None really. High cost is expected with the effect that Wedding has. It can easily gain speed attacker with the support cards. It can be protected against discard using Berlin, Bell Gravekeeper. It can be reshuffled back to deck if put to grave by slash trio using Forever Princess, An Eternity to Rule Them. So no Apparent Weaknesses.
Waileukwu, one of the best writers of reviews, just pointed out some of the basic weaknesses of Wedding. Well those who don't want to go to the length of reading his comment by highlighting it, I am writing the main Cons.
Wedding usually requires a deck to be build around her ( unless you use MiraMisu ). So if Wedding gets trolled by your opponent, you basically lose the game. In essence, it is a creature which can make you win or lose the game.
The Ways in which your opponent can make Wedding not attack while taking out your own shields would be :-
1. Freeze - This is an ability with which you can choose one of your opponent's creatures and tap it. That creature won't untap at the beginning of your turn. So a Tapped Wedding means two turns for your opponent to demolish you while you look desperately. The cards which will help you would be :-
Majestic Star, The Electro - Apocalyptic - Whenever this creature attacks, you can "Freeze" one of your opponent's creatures.
Una Arana, Neptune Spirit - Whenever this creature attacks, you can "Double Freeze", ie.e use Freeze twice.
Freezing Kachikochin - When you put this creature, you may Freeze one of your opponent's creatures.
Yuppal, Binding Guardian - Same effect as Freezing KAchikochin, just costs 1 less, with lesser power.
And the King of them all..
Dying Message, Friction Heaven of Freezing - When you put this creature, or when this creature attacks, you may "Freeze" one of your opponent's creatures.
"Brrr..Feeling cold yet?.."
2. Well, since you gain such a lot of shields, you may just use
Ghastly Drain - Take all your shields to your hand.
"One of the most feared curses of the Darkness Civilization.."
With this not only do you gain a huge hand, you also get to use Gabriella, The Holy Princess' G-Zero, triggering other G-Zero's as well. A Good Example of such a deck would be Waileukwu's Finding Dawn . A Really Awesome deck in my opinion getting the Deck of the Week.
3. You can use Revenge Chance of
Khancrow, Stalwart Unstoppable - At the end of each turn, if your opponent has a creature in the battle zone that costs 11 or more or has 18000 power or more, you may put this creature into the battle zone for no cost.
" You think you are the only one with power?.." - Khancrow, Stalwart Unstoppable.
4. You may also use one of the amazing trollers known as
Victorious PuddingPudding - When you put this creature in the battle zone, choose one of your opponent's creatures, it can't attack or block till your next turn.
" And then a light shone in the night sky, enchanting all those in sight.."
So yes, as every card has some weakness, do does Wedding. But overall, i think the pros are more than the cons.
And I give Wedding an Overall rating of 10/10. Lots of benefits, no real weaknesses, and a real awesome card in my opinion. It took me 4 days to complete the review due to connection problems and errors with TCO. Hope you liked it.
