Level 4 monsters have always been the backbone of most decks, they usually have the ATK/DEF stats required to perform well after being summoned. Some of them have powerful effects that can help turn the tide of a duel or further secure a victory. The best level 4 monsters tend to have both but some have so much ATK/DEF or such amazing effects that they pip others in terms of power. So if you’re looking to spice up your decks and make your friends hate you, check out the top 10 best level 4 Yugioh monsters!
10. Steel Cavalry of Dinon
If you have a stall or defensive deck, you might find yourself using monsters like Destiny Hero – Defender and Big Shield Gardna. Time to switch them out as there’s a much better version of both of them, this card has a decent ATK and really high DEF at 2600. Of course it has a drawback, Pendulum monsters can destroy it easily but it’s still an amazing card and arguably the best level 4 defensive monster.
9. Breaker The Magical Warrior
Coming in at number 9 is Breaker The Magical Warrior, once on the forbidden list for being so good. Being able to destroy a spell/trap by simply giving up 300 ATK is a great effect, it goes perfect with a spell counter deck but can fit into any beat down deck. This card is loved by fans due to its age and usefulness.
Another great defensive card, Dino-Sewing cannot be destroyed by battle but unlike other cards that have this, it comes with even more. If its attacked 3 times it’ll have 3000 ATK, imagine this with a deck that forces your opponent to attack.
7. Amazoness Sage
This card is crazy good in a Warrior deck, or any beat-down deck really. Every time it successfully attacks and survives the attack, you can destroy a spell/trap your opponent controls. Amazoness Cards have a ton of great effects but Amazoness Sage is the best.
6. Blizzard Dragon
With a decent ATK & great effect, Blizzard Dragon is one of the best level 4 monsters out there. Being Dragon type, it can fit into a lot of Dragon decks that have support cards to help it be put to good use. Unfortunately it’s Water type so it doesn’t fit all Dragon decks but its use can also be extended to stall or beat-down decks.
5. High ATK Normal Monsters
Maybe you’ve viewed this list to see some great normal monsters for whatever reason. There’s a fair few with 2000 ATK, being able to summon such a high ATK monster immediately is great. There are more than just Gene-Warped Warwolf, such as Alexandrite Dragon and Phantom Gryphon.
4. Ehren, Lightsworn Monk
Fairly situational but extremely powerful in the correct situations. Being able to shuffle a defense position monster right into the deck is an awesome effect, it’s perfect with cards like Photon Papilloperative. The cost of sending the top 4 cards from the deck to the graveyard is quite a hindrance in anything outside of Lightsworn decks but the power of the effect makes it an amazing level 4 monster.
3. Reflect Bounder
Another classic card with an effect that still holds up today, Reflect Bounder can inflict insane amounts of battle damage to your opponent. The 1700 ATK means your opponent is guaranteed to take at least 1800 life points, in an effect damage deck this contributes heavily. As a Light attribute and Machine type, it could fit into a lot of archetype or themed decks too.
Instant Rank 4 XYZ monster, any more to say?
Goblindbergh is an extremely useful card that can fit into any Warrior deck seamlessly and provide easy access to Rank 4 XYZ monsters. It can be searched with Reinforcement of the Army to make for easy summoning.
1. Heroic Challenger – Assault Halberd
Quite an overloaded effect but it’s a really powerful card that is great for battling, useful for XYZ summoning and searching. It can be easy to summon, inflict some damage and add another to your hand, which you can normal summon and overlay them both for a Rank 4 XYZ, or simply keep pelting your opponent with attacks. Highly recommended for a deck that has trouble getting their big monsters out quickly and it fits perfectly in a Warrior or beat-down deck.
