General description:
Ok this card is the pinnacle of all staples used now and is a perfect response to E-Dragons.

Uses:
To Lockdown E-Dragons, Prophecy, and Mermails

Strategies and game play:
To use its effect once to get Evilswarm Pandemic to prevent its destruction

Combos with other cards:
Use it with Evilswarm Bahamut to take control of any problem monster that can't be prevented.

Ways to counteract it:
Easily Effect veiler

Strengths/Pros:
This card's Strength is Turn Advantage since going first will almost guarantee that you won't be run over

Weaknesses/Cons:
If you are going second this is a huge problem since all the powerful monsters will be setting an Iron Wall that Ophion Cannot run over. also going first while veilered is another weakness since you won't have Pandemic to protect you from Blaster/Calderas of the E-Dragons.

Variations:
It was released in the OCG and TCG as a Secret rare and won't be bumped or brought down.

Artwork and aesthetics:
yes but its effect does not fit the overall picture of this card.

Overall rating:
Because of how many weaknesses this card will encounter, I'm giving this a 7.2 out of 10 and don't ever expect this to be top tier.

nowadays a lot of the most used and powerful cards are lower level monsters and xyz monsters that are below level 5 anyway...infact ophion is only rank 4. this card is great to stop high levle monster summons but what does it do against the all too common hand advantage/xyz decks? such as blackwings gadgets ect?

rated too high - i give it a 5/10
