General description:
Yet another random card review to save the day. Well, let's get started shall we?This card basically allows you a free monster. It has the same weaknesses as monsters and Traps, and the same strengths. But if it's on the Field long enough for your opponent to destroy it by attack, or other similar means, your using it in a way that I wouldn't.
Uses:
You see, in my opinion, 1 word pops into my head: Tribute. This card CAN be tributed for a Tribute Summon. On the turn it is Special Summoned. So go for it.

Strategies and game play:
You can use it as a Tribute, and if your opponent has weak crap on the Field, you kill it quickly.In addition, you should be aware that it is affected by like MST or Heavy Storm as well as Man-Eater and crap.
Combos with other cards:
Book of Moon, Giant Trunade, and others will protect this card from the elements of death.(It is a Trap)

Ways to counteract it:
Virtually anything kills it, monsters, Spells that wouldn't affect monsters, Spells that wouldn't affect Traps, etc.

Strengths/Pros:
Tributable, protection with cards like Book of Moon and Giant Trunade.

Weaknesses/Cons:
Killed by virtually anything, low ATK and Def.

Variations:
This is a Shonen Jump promo, as well as a promo from a Sneak Preview (Cybernetic Revolution I beleive)

Artwork and aesthetics:
Apophis was a reptilian/snake type god so it makes sense. Mind you it doesn't look particularily powerful or evil,and Apophis was the god of evil and darkness...oh well.

Overall rating:
Well, in a Tribute deck, I'd give it an 8/10
Swarm Deck 7/10
Other 5/10
