Comment from the author:
Have you ever wanted an easier and more effective version of Protector of the Sanctuary?
Well now you have it!
Its called Capture Car D. Made so its the opposite version of the other Car D, Card Car D.

Capture Car its actually an slightly overpowered card, considering you can add it to your hand with Sangan and just wait till your opponent starts drawing a lot of cards to summon it.

I say slightly overpowered because we are talking about half in an aspect that has no halves all the time (the hand, grave, banished and deck). This card its effective if your opponent has more 4 or more cards in the hand or if it uses a deck that focuses on drawing.
The drawing is not negated or stopped before the summoning, which means if your opponent Draws and makes Exodia, you cannot stop it (and lose the duel [DUH!]). Also, the effect would be negated if your opponent plays a Counter Trap against this card.

Since the effect can easily be exploited by its owner (Card Desctruction, Dark World Dealing, etc.) I decided to limit the number of uses to 2, auto-semi-limiting it.

Subject: Text modification for better understanding of "half of opponent's hand" effect.   Posted: October 20, 2012 03:57 am

Suggestion of change to effect text:
If your Opponent draws a card(s) outside of the Draw Phase, You can Special Summon this card from your Hand.
When this card is Special Summoned this way, your opponent cannot draw cards except during Draw Phases.
Based on your opponent's Hand Size during the Special Summon of this card, apply 1 of these effects once per turn:
∙ If your opponent's Hand size is an odd number, your opponent subtracts 1 card from their Hand size and randomly discards half of that number in cards to the Graveyard.
∙ If your opponent's Hand size is an even number, your opponent randomly discards half of that number in cards to the Graveyard.
Each Player can only activate the effect of "Capture Car D" up to twice per Duel.
This effect can be used during either Player's turn.

quote from admiralz:



Thanks for the observation, I'm glad to see someone commenting in other people's cards.

Anyway, since the effect of this card is Quick and has a condition to activate (which starts a new chain), is not neccessary to add the part "during either Player's turn."

Also I made the original effect to be slightly fair with your opponent, allowing her/him to choose the cards that would be discarded.

Finally, i tried using the whole effect you suggested but it was a too long so I took the time and tried to fix it to be readable in the image.

Other than that, your suggestion is great and I'll use mostly of it.

Subject: Your point is well taken   Posted: October 20, 2012 04:26 pm

I agree with your point that letting the opponent choose which cards are discarded is more fair, and that the Quick Effect makes "you can use this on either player's turn" unneeded. I also like the way you shortened my suggested text, still very readable. It is nice to know that suggestions are heeded regarding Dream Cards, and I look forward to looking over some other cards you have created or will create.
