Darkness attributed Event - Geldes Grahm

Posted on 14th March, 2021 at 12:12pm CST
Today we have a new influencer reveal! In addition, since we'd fallen behind a bit, we'll also be doing some catch up after today's reveal.

This influencer reveal comes to us from the Youtuber "Yannishi's Daily Life Channel", who is also one of the winners of the Gate Ruler Music Grand Prix.

Geldes Grahm (Everything is futile before the power of darkness)
Card Number: 2021GB02-015 ★★
Faction: Volnar
Card Type: Event
Level: 1
Attribute(s): Magic, Darkness
Effect: Use Timing: Normal
■ Choose 1 enemy unit, and deal damage to it equal to the number of Darkness cards in your graveyard.
Flavor Text: Guns & Gold's development of "Vastorus Rex's dress" was a difficult task. The power to shift the time axis of anything he touched and cause it to decay into dust had become a wall. The breakthrough that finally crossed that wall was applying CEO Midas's abilities as a Gate Ruler to create gates to act as dimensional barriers.

First thing's first, being a Darkness event is incredibly valuable. Previous Events that support Darkness have avoided having this attribute, which has reduced how much of your deck is Darkness, not just preventing you from filling the graveyard by simply playing Events, but also reducing the consistency of mill effects. So even with a mediocre effect, the mere presence of that attribute would have made the card notable.

But on top of that, its also an incredibly powerful card. Even at Normal speed, the removal heights it can reach is far beyond what you can typically get for the cost, with typically seeing 4 damage on Level 2s and 6 damage (or hard removal) on Level 3s. Its low cost makes it pretty easy to do a play of using this to remove something and then playing an Abyssal Summoner to bring out one of your Abyssal Concerto boss cards. Especially notable is this gives the deck yet another out to Malevolus Prime. Already in this set its received 2 powerful Abyssal Summoners with enough HP to more easily survive against Malevolus, and now this Event allows you to remove Malevolus before playing a Summoner, a play which requires the same 5 Darkness in graveyard that your big Abyssal Concerto units will require.

Lastly, it seems likely that Darkness will have many different ways of viably building it in this set. Its powerful 2 Abyssal Summoners (Dark Mother, who is featured later in this article, and Voltona), while both very good, do not work well together, so will likely be used in different builds. And beyond that, with this card, Final End's primary function working when played normally, and potentially more similar cards like "Black Knight, Zahar" who is known to be in this set, there could be a Darkness build that focuses less on actually Abyssal Summoning, and more on building up cards in the graveyard and benefitting from them.

All in all, its a fantastic card that perfectly fits Darkness's control oriented style of play.

With that said, on to the catch up of previous reveals!

The March 1st reveal is an influencer reveal from Youtuber "Aibo Academy".

Translator's Note: The kanji used for "waiting" in this flavor text is the same as the Standby keyword. They've been translated differently to better fit their contexts, but since this seems like a deliberate reference, I wanted to point this out.
