Prince
Yaken
Grape Globbo
Cost: 2
Civilization: Water
Card Type: Creature
Race: Cyber Virus
. When you put this creature into the battle zone, look at your opponent's hand.
Power: 1000

Civilization: Water is all about manipulation, draw power, field control, and is still one of the dominant mono deck types. Very few mono decks placed

high in the past Invitational Circuit and mono water was the deck to take the cake.

Cost/Power: 2 mana for 1000 power is seen in popular low cost water cards.
During Limited Format events, low cost creatures can mean the difference between winning and losing. Emeral still stands as king of low cost manipulation but Grape Globbo's use in the Continental Championships showed how Emeral could take a preverbal back seat for a moment and share the limelight.

Abilities: Upon summoning, Grape Globbo gives you a free peek at your opponent's hand. It's a pretty standard ability that with past cards such as

Scheming Hands and Rain of Arrows wasn't taken advantage of by the masses.
When mixed with discard cards, Grape Globbo makes every discard play that less risky. How many times have you seen or heard of a Cranium Clamp, Locomotiver, or Lost Soul give the opponent a free summon? It can be more often than you think especially with Water/Light decks packed with draw power.

Card Efficiency: Unless run with discard cards, Grape Globbo's ability will mostly just provide the ability to see what to play or not to play and what options your opponent has.

Constructed: Grape Globbo will mostly just serve as tech for discard focused

decks who do not want to deal with Dava Torey, Seeker of Clouds as early as turn 4. 2/5

Limited: Grape Globbo is just as usable in limited due to being one of the few low cost cards that serve a dual purpose. 2.5/5
