Returns any card on the Field back to their owner’s hand by discarding a WATER monster as a cost.
Good ATK stats.
Weak DEF stats susceptible to position switching plays
Must discard only WATER monsters as the cost to activate effect.
This is a very powerful and versatile monster that can return any card on the Field back to their owner’s hand, can even return your opponent’s Spell/Trap cards back to their hand.
Please take note that this monster’s effect does not affect Hazy Flame archetype monsters therefore they cannot return Hazy Flame monsters back to the owner’s hand.
You can also return Lava Golem on your side of the Field back to your opponent’s hand to prevent further effect damage.
This card is faster in comparison to Guardian Statue and Crass Clown as it does not require to be flipped summoned/switch position in order to return opponent’s monsters.
These are some of the popular monsters in the current meta that may take a considerable amount of resources to summon to the Field. Abyss Soldier is able to thwart that effort by simply returning that monster to your opponent’s hand.
Well, in 2004~2005, abyss soldier was top tier monster. It could be used as attacker in water type deck, good combination with Killer snake, and also can be used with lvl4 type water monster in Atlantis+Gravity combo.
its such a great card. one of my favorites from RL dueling back in the day.
To the haters its not going to get limited. For one its only good in a water deck and they just aren't that strong right now. Even whale + ssa while definitely can get plat or legend isn't quite good enough for KOG atm sadly even though I love water and wish it was.
