Obelisk The Tormentor (GLD4-EN030)
Card Name: Obelisk The Tormentor
Type: Divine Beast/Effect
You must Tribute 3 monsters to Normal Summon this card (you cannot Set this card). The Normal Summon of this card cannot be negated. When this card is Normal Summoned, cards and effects cannot be activated. This card cannot be targeted by Spells, Traps, Spell/Trap effects, or Effect Monster effects. If this card is Special Summoned, it is sent to the Graveyard during the End Phase. You can Tribute 2 monsters to destroy all monsters your opponent controls. This card cannot declare an attack the turn this effect is activated.
One of the three Egyptian God Cards, Obelisk is near the top in all categories. The summoning requirement for a card of this level is fairly easy. Once Obelisk The Tormentor is in play he is almost impossible to stop. Spells, Traps, and Effect Monsters that require targeting can't touch him. With a hefty 4000 ATK and 4000 DEF there aren't many cards out there that can even handle a direct assault at him. And if that wasn't enough, you can tribute two monsters to destroy all monsters your opponent controls. So on their next turn, if they can't bring something out to stop this beat stick the duel is pretty much over. He is an absolute powerhouse and one of the best cards available.
