As this is my first review I will say hello fellow Duellists and I hope you like or at least find this review informative

For the first time in ages this little guy is coming back into tier decks, dino rabbit decks struggle with this card as most main two forbidden lances and a smashing ground, as effect vailer doesn’t destroy this card and non of their xyz monsters can negate its continues effect.


The Wind-up Zenmaighty deck (Speed Maighty we are all seeing/Inzektor we will see after order of chaos) can even side this dark level 3 monster in given it can not be destroyed by battle set first turn end next turn summon the Tourguide to the Underworld special summoning a Tourbus.to the Underworld, overlay Tourguide to the Underworld and Tourbus to the Underworld make the Wind-up Zenmaighty special summon the Wind-up Hunter effect of Wind-up Hunter on Wind-up Zenmaighty effect of Tourbus to the Underworld to return Wind-up Zenmaighty to the extra deck use the Spirit Reaper and Wind-up Hunter to special summon Wind-up Zenmaighty and special summon Wind- up Rat.

Chaos stall he is dark with a Marshmallon makes Number 17 Levaithan Dragon or Leviair the Sea Dragon to bring back the Spirit Reaper you removed for the last Black Luster Soldier Envoy of the Beginning or Chaos Sorcerer,
I have even seen other normally strong themed decks running this little guy, Blackwings for defence when they run into the mirror force and dimensional prison we are all running,
Infernities to help make Leviair the Sea Dragon with an Infernity Necromancer to bring back the banished Infernity normally Infernity Archfiend as we all have a few D.D. Crows in the side deck for annoying guys like him,
Even normal Inzektor are running a few Spirit Reapers given their very low attack power this guys effect stopping him being destroyed by battle a saving grace for this deck

Even in offence his effect can cause an opponent to discard a card remember don’t attack into Dark Worlds or it could cause you a lot of problems and he has only 300 attack so unless you have a Book of Moon, Solemn Warnings, Bottomless Trap hole a Compulsory Evacuation Device to protect him or have game leaving him in attack is not a good idea.

To sum up
Advantages,
• Level 3 (great for xyz even syncro summoning with a Plaguespreader Zombie for Ally of Justice Catastor for example)
• Dark Monster can be removed for Allure of Darkness Dark Armed Dragons effect
• Can not be destroyed by battle
• Can make your opponent discard cards at random if it attacks directly
• You can run 3 of them yes that’s right 3
Disadvantages
• Low attack points a merger 300
• When targeted by card effects after the current chain resolves it destroys its self (this mean Brionac Dragon of the Ice Barrier, Effect Vailer, Forbidden Chalice can not destroy him)


I don’t think his art work is very good it look like he’s charging forward about to take the soul of your opponent but he spend most of his time in defence saving your soul or at least your life points
I think he looks more cute than scary but I think it suits him the look of someone with a full field including Six Samurai (saw more than once at regional last format 3 Shi-ens a Grandmaster and Grear Shogun Shi-en) running into a face down Spirit Reaper with no way to target (to destroy) him, the image of him sat with a huge grin on his face sharpening his scythe just make me laugh.


In the current Advance Format I have to give this little guy a solid 8 out of 10
In Traditional Format I still give him a good 6.5 out of 10
