This card increases your monster's attack by 500 points, bring a weak monster like don zaloog to a pretty powerful attack, or juice up a maha volia for a full 1000. It also has a dangerous side effect, makes a great mst or heavy storm waster. This card was totally overlooked in my opinion, but let me know if u run it.
Equip it to your monster. If it's destroyed by a card like mst heavy storm or some other card, then you can blow away one of your opponents cards on the field. This card can even skate around jinzo if you activate it before jinzo is summoned because after it is equiped it is changed to an equip spell card, so you still get the full effect even if jinzo is out.
Strategies and game play:
Just wait untill your opponent activates heavy storm or mst, and watch the fireworks fly. Its also a kind of crazy move, but if you desperately need one of your opponents cards off of the field, you can mst it or heavy storm, or even breaker it yourself. It works great in field control decks and I can see it being fairly played in the future.
Combos with other cards:
Maha volia, Sacred phoenix of nepthys, and you can even equip it to your opponents monster so you can destroy it with one of your spell/trap/effect cards.
Ways to counteract it:
Kinda hard to counteract seeing as how this card is most of the time facedown until your opponent suckers you into using your mst or heavy storm. However, you could use seven tools of the bandit or solemn judegment, or already have jinzo out before they can activate it, but since seven tools and solemn judgement aren't really staples in player's decks, this card is pretty hard to stop.
Not only does it work as kind of a fake trap, but it also can kill one of your opponents cards if destroyed and juices up your monsters attack by 500. Also, it may scare your opponent into thinking it is a magic cylinder or bottomless trap hole etc, and prevent them from attacking or summoning. Also, if your opponent is going to attack one of your weaker monsters and destroy it, you could always have the 500 attack bonus surprise your opponent and make them recall their attack and then finish their monster next turn.
Only two weaknessnes. If your monster is equipped with it and you opponent has no cards on the field, then you have to destroy one of your own cards. However, since most of the time your opponent rarely has a blank field, with the exception of at the start of the duel, this shouldn't be too much of a problem. Also, if your opponent destroys it and you cannot equip it to any monster, you do not get its effect because its effect only activates if it is equipped to a monster.
Not sure about the languages but lod, the warrior deck, and db2.
Artwork and aesthetics:
Im not going to lie. I think the artwork *beep*. But have you ever known upperdeck/konami to spend time making a rare/common card look cool?
8.5/10 This card is better than most people think.
