So I was looking for a random card to talk about this week, and so I decided to write a quick analysis for a prominent card that stood out to me on my “card crown” I received as a birthday gift from Mokey-chan.

Tytannial, Princess of Camellias is not a particularly viable card. She has great stats for her level, and her effect is technically decent, but a rule of thumb in card games you must ask yourself constantly is, “Are there better cards to fill this slot?” And to answer this question for this case: yes, there are.

There are plenty of other choices in fact.

Not to mention, this card is very restrictive/niche because only a Plant deck could practically run her. She is also a tad tricky to summon without some extra effort.

Plus, this card’s effect requires you to have a Plant type monster out in play (which you can just target this card itself) to Tribute. The second condition requires a card(s) on the field being targeted by something.

So, for example:

1. Your opponent uses Mystical Space Typhoon to target a card in your backrow.

MysticalSpaceTyphoon-YS13-EN-SR-1E

2. You chain Tytannial, Princess of Camellias‘ effect by using a Botanical Girl as a Tribute to satisfy the card’s cost condition.

BotanicalGirlCSOC-EN-C-1E

3. When resolved successfully, Mystical Space Typhoon is negated and destroyed (and Botanical Girl‘s effect would also trigger in this scenario, netting you a new Plant monster to your hand from your deck).

So all in all, Tytannial, Princess of Camellias is certainly not a bad card, but it is not something you can throw into any kind of deck and expect magic to happen.

For what it’s worth, the card art is really pretty and interesting.

Don’t hate on flowers.
