|New Addition: Ruby Text for Japanese Characters|
We have begun entering all Japanese characters for all relevant cards, using a rather neat set of tags called "Ruby". This enables characters to be entered above others in a smaller text, mimicking how Konami prints the text on their cards.
Subsequently, browsing this Wikia in Internet Explorer is recommended, since this renders correctly. However, Firefox users may be wondering why they just see a set of brackets with characters. Firefox, as it turns out, does not have out-of-the-box support for XHTML Ruby. But, all is not lost, simply go here to download the XHTML Ruby Extension, works on all Firefox versions from 1.0 to 2.0.0.*.

What do you get when you mix a Cockatrice with a Basilisk, and then add in a pinch of Yu-Gi-Oh flare? You get the one and only "Hazy Flame Basiltrice", a monster that immediately strikes fear into your opponent, mostly because it turns their best monster into thin air. Let's take a close-up look at "Hazy Flame Basiltrice".
First and foremost, we immediately see that "Basiltrice" needs to be made with at least 2 Level 6 FIRE Attribute monsters, and while those requirements might look steep, they're easily met if "Basiltrice" is used with the right Deck. "Basiltrice" actually has four different effects, and accumulates them based on the number of Xyz Materials that are currently attached to it. The Ignition Effect of "Hazy Flame Basiltrice" can be activated as long as you have at least 1 Xyz Material attached to it; just detach 1 Xyz Material from "Basiltrice" and banish any monster on your opponent's field or Graveyard. That's a ridiculously powerful effect, and makes "Basiltrice" an amazing problem solver for really tough monsters. If you manage to have 3, 4, or 5 Xyz Materials, "Basiltrice" will just become better.
Obviously, "Hazy Flame Basiltrice" fits in perfectly with the "Hazy Flame" archetype, and a single successful resolution of a "Hazy Flame Peryton" or "Hazy Flame Sphynx" will usually end up with you making "Basiltrice". Usually, Summoning a "Hazy Flame Sphynx" and another "Hazy Flame" off of 1 "Peryton" makes it possible to summon a "Basiltrice" with at least 3 Xyz Materials. Even though "Basiltrice" fits in perfectly with "Hazy Flame", it's also possible to make "Basiltrice" in some existing "Evol" builds. "Evoltile Najasho" and "Evo-Force" make it easy to summon two copies of "Evolsaur Terias", "Evolsaur Darwino", or "Evolsaur Elias". Heck, even "Goka, the Pyre of Malice" or "B.E.S. Big Core MK-2" can be paired up with a "Flamvell Uruquizas" or "Lavalval Dragon" to summon "Basiltrice".
Even though "Hazy Flame Basiltrice" seems difficult to Summon, it's a Rank 6 Xyz Monster that acts as a powerful problem-solver, and that alone is reason enough to find a way to summon it.
