Starter Deck: Jaden Yuki (Page 1)

Cybernetic Cyclopean
EARTH / Beast-Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 1400 / DEF 200
While you have no cards in your hand, this card gains 1000 ATK.
Rating: 1
Comments: The odds of him lasting on the field are the same as the odds of him using his effect: near ZERO. Don't use him.
Elemental Hero Wildheart
EARTH / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 1500 / DEF 1600
This card is unaffected by the effects of Trap Cards.
Rating: 2
Comments: He avoids cards such as Ring, Mirror Force and Torrential but still, even Maha Vailo at 1550 ATK can destroy him.  
Elemental Hero Bladedge
EARTH / Warrior / Level 7 / ATK 2600 / DEF 1800
During battle between this attacking card and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent.
Rating: 3
Comments: 2600 ATK rolls over SS, Jinzo and GAF! Plus when he knocks down a Defense Position monster with DEF under his ATK, the opponent takes damage equal to the difference! The two tributes hurts it though. 

Elemental Hero Bubbleman
WATER / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 800 / DEF 1200
If this is the only card in your hand, you can Special Summon it. When this card is Summoned, you can draw 2 cards if there are no other cards on your side of the field and in your hand.
Rating: 1
Comments: Keep him in Jaden decks only since his stats are low and his effect is horrible.  
DARK / Fiend / Level 4 / ATK 1400 / DEF 200
If all monsters your opponent controls are in Defense Position, this card can attack your opponent directly.
Rating: 1
Comments: While there are more situations where this card can attack your opponent directly than with Drillago, 1400 ATK won't last long and his DEF makes him easy pray for even Zone Eater at 250 ATK.
Chiron the Mage
EARTH / Beast-Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 1800 / DEF 1000
Once per turn, you can discard 1 Spell Card to destroy 1 Spell or Trap Card your opponent controls.
Rating: 2
Comments: His effect is truly horrid. In fact, it's so bad that this guy gets 2/5 stars for such a bad effect. For beat down, you can run him but elsewhere, don't use him at all.
Ninja Grandmaster Sasuke
LIGHT / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 1800 / DEF 1000
If this card attacks a face-up Defense Position monster, destroy the monster with this card's effect without applying damage calculation.
Rating: 3
Comments: Take out Giant Soldier of Stone, Stone Statue of the Aztecs and even Labyrinth Wall without a problem if they're in Defense Position!
Mataza the Zapper
DARK / Warrior / Level 3 / ATK 1300 / DEF 800
This monster can attack twice during the same Battle Phase. Control of this card cannot switch.
Rating: 3
Comments: Being able to avoid Snatch Steal, Brain Jacker or any other card that steals your monsters is quite decent! Plus, power him up with Equip Spells for even more damage!
WIND / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 1400 / DEF 1800
You can change the battle position of this card once per turn, during your End Phase.
Rating: 2
Comments: The odds of this guy actually surviving a battle with 1400 ATK are pretty slim especially since he has no way of protecting himself. Use him in Joey decks only.
Exiled Force
EARTH / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 1000 / DEF 1000
You can Tribute this card to destroy 1 monster on the field.
Rating: 2
Comments: Not the strongest of cards with stats of (1000/1000) but in the right situations it can be helpful but still, you waste your Normal Summon just to use his effect.
Mask of Darkness
DARK / Fiend / Level 2 / ATK 900 / DEF 400
FLIP: Select 1 Trap Card in your Graveyard. Add it to your hand.
Rating: 2
Comments: While it allows you to bring back some of the game's best Trap Cards like Mirror Force and Magic Cylinder, it's prone to Monster Removal.
Poison Mummy
EARTH / Zombie / Level 4 / ATK 1000 / DEF 1800
FLIP: Inflict 500 damage to your opponent.
Rating: 1
Comments: His stats are horrid and his effect is just bad. Don't run him as there are better cards that deal damage than this.
Elemental Hero Sparkman (original artwork)
LIGHT / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 1600 / DEF 1400
An Elemental Hero and a warrior of light who proficiently wields many kinds of armaments. His Shining Surge Flash cuts off the path of villainy.
Rating: 1
Comments: Same as YSDJ-EN006's comments.
Elemental Hero Clayman
EARTH / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 800 / DEF 2000
An Elemental Hero with a clay body built-to-last. He will preserve his Elemental Hero colleagues at any cost.
Rating: 2
Comments: He has 2000 DEF but that's about it. Only use this for Jaden, Aster or Stall decks.
Elemental Hero Burstinatrix (original artwork)
FIRE / Warrior / Level 3 / ATK 1200 / DEF 800
A flame manipulator who is the only woman among the Elemental Heroes. Her Burstfire burns away villainy.
Rating: 1
Comments: Same as YSDJ-EN005's comments.
Elemental Hero Avian (original artwork)
WIND / Warrior / Level 3 / ATK 1000 / DEF 1000
A winged Elemental Hero who wheels through the sky and manipulates the wind. His signature move, Featherbreak, gives villainy a blow from sky-high.
Rating: 1
Comments: Unless this is for Jaden or Aster's deck, don't use this.
Sonic Duck
WIND / Winged Beast / Level 3 / ATK 1700 / DEF 700
A duck which can walk at a sonic speed. Sometimes, he cannot deal with his incredible pace and loses control.
Rating: 1
Comments: Don't run this.
Dark Blade
DARK / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 1800 / DEF 1500
They say he is a dragon manipulating warrior from the dark world. His attack is tremendous, using his great swords with vicious power.
Rating: 3
Comments: 1800 ATK knocks down Jerry Beans Man or many of the high attackers in Defense Position!
Gemini Elf
EARTH / Spellcaster / Level 4 / ATK 1900 / DEF 900
Elf twins that alternate their attacks.
Rating: 4
Comments: One of the best 1900 attackers around!
Cyber-Tech Alligator
WIND / Machine / Level 5 / ATK 2500 / DEF 1600
Originally a pterodactyl, he was viciously attacked by a dragon. Using the newest technologies, his keeper saved him from near-fatal wounds and brought him back as a powerful Cyborg.
Rating: 4
Comments: 2500 ATK makes him great in just about any deck and being a Machine-Type, he's usable with Limiter Removal! Great card overall!
Elemental Hero Necroshade
DARK / Warrior / Level 5 / ATK 1600 / DEF 1800
While this card is in the Graveyard, one time only you can Normal Summon 1 "Elemental Hero" monster from your hand without Tributing any monsters.
Rating: 2
Comments: Not the greatest Elemental Hero in this deck but it can help if you have a high-level Elemental Hero in your hand and no monsters out but still just an okay card so keep him in Jaden's deck only.
