Default Solemn Judgement Vs. My Body As A Shield




Solemn Judgement:


Pros:

-Counter trap.
-Can be chained to Royal Decree.
-Negates Jinzo, Mobius, Zaborg, Giant Trunades, any other monsters/magics/traps from being summoned/played.
-A good late-game card.

Cons:

-Horrible early-game card.
-Opponent can chain Royal Decree.
-Bad top deck.


My Body As A Shield:

Pros:

-Quick-play.
-Can negate Nobleman of Crossout, Deck Devastation Virus, Exiled Force, Lightning Vortex, so on.
-Can be chained to Mirror Force or Sakuretsu Armor in the Battle Step (or Damage Step? Too many game mechanics.)

Cons:

-You may not always have 1500LP to pay it's cost.

(Can't think of anymore...)

So tell me what you all think. I'm trying to decide for my Tomato/Old Vindictive Control build. Plus, I've always wondered which was better of the two. I'm using three SOlemns at the moment.

1.read the rulings
royal decree is spell speed 2, solemn speed 3

2.My Body is better because most time your lp is greater than 3000 and
what else you would negate for it?monsters are center of game.
and it cannot be played in damage step, only in battle.

2 negation card are enough, I guess they would be both MBAAS or Solemn Judgement.otherwise you lose too much lp

If you chain Solemn Judgement to the summong of a...D.D. Warrior Lady, your opponent can chain with Royal Decree...


Or so I thought.

He's right that you can't activate it in the Damage Step. But it can be chained to cards like 'Mirror Force' because that happens in the Battle Step. (It goes Start Step->Battle Step->Damage Step->End Step.)

As for which in one is better...that's a question with no definite answer.

EDIT: No, 'Royal Decree' can NOT be chained to 'Solemn Judgment'. The only thing that can chain to 'Solemn Judgment' are cards that are Spell Speed 3, and the only cards that are that fast are other Counter Traps.

'Royal Decree' is a Continuous Trap, which means it's a Spell Speed 2.

this reminds me of the old days. dark elf was used first when you had alot of life points and jirai gumo was used when you were lower on points. the same is true here, mbaas is good early game when you still have alot oflp, then solemn is better later on when lp are low and its cost isnt as much.

I have had a Solemn Judgement used against my own Solemn Judgment many times. Even though they lost lp, they got the effect they were looking for, most of the time it is when I am running my Camel Control and I try to Solemn their Heavy Storm or their Mobius.

Solemn Judgment is the best trap card out there today so yah you may be caying a lot of life points but in th elong run you will most likly win if you solemned the right card at the right time.

Just like any other "versus" thread...

Depends on the deck.

Generally though, SJ is better because it can always be used and it can normally stop everything. Espcailly with Chaos/Machine Return, MBaaS won't save you from that.

I like both of them. Solemn works together with decks that rely on one card. The Shield is good for really aggro decks! I like Solemn more. Opinion though.
