Cripple the newest decks with this one card.

General description:
This is a rather old card from PSV and it is usually overlooked by most people in my local tournaments. It was used once in the last locals I attended. It was used to cripple a Disaster Dragon deck in one turn which led to an OTK next turn. That inspired me to write this review.

Uses:
I would run this card in every competitive deck out there. Just make sure you don't use it in a mirror match. That will cripple both you and your opponent. Most decks have one or two key cards (Lightsworns/ JD, Disaster Dragon/Red Eyes Darkness MetalDragon, etc.) If you pull this card and name that specific card. It will devestate your opponent and give you the chance for a quick OTK. All you need to do is get this card quickly and keep it protected.

Strategies and game play:
If this is in your opening hand, play it first turn and "ban" if you will, your opponents key card according to what deck they are using. I gave a few examples earlier. The idea is just to shut your opponent down quickly to let you get the cards you need to go in for the OTK. If you get this card late in the game it could still be useful. Just think of a card or combo your opponent has not yet done or even a synchro monster like Brionac or BW synchs if you want. Either way this card can be used in many different ways to cripple your opponent no matter what deck they are using.

Combos with other cards:
This card is usually played by itself in most cases. If you want overkill you can use two copies of it but you only need one in most cases. If you know any good combos just let me know and I'll put in in my review.

Ways to counteract it:
The obvious way is to use staple cards like MST or Heavy Storm, Giant Trunade works too but it will be back next turn.

Strengths/Pros:
-Easy to obtain (card wise)
-Easy to use
-Instant Cripple Card

Weaknesses/Cons:
-Only works if it is on the field


Variations:
- PSV Rare
- CP08 Super Rare
- SDMM Common

Artwork and aesthetics:
Artwork does'nt mean much in this card. The picture does give a god idea of what the card does though. So all in all it works.

Overall rating:
With everything taken into consideration I'd give it a 9/10

I'll be honest...i forgot about this card. But WOW! talk about the ultimate side deck card. most cards in a side deck are somewhat specific (ex. like mirror of oaths or swallow flip for glads), but this is very versatile and will work against any deck. I would probably side it and main it during the second duel because then i would know my opponents deck. long story short, i'm gonna start siding this card! btw nice review!
