Well, I'll take
another try at trying to get to a sanctioned
tourney tomorrow, but before I do, I'll do a
CotD for one of Yugi's trump cards, Kuriboh.
Discard this card from your hand to the
Graveyard to make the damage inflicted to your
Life Points by 1 opponent's monster 0. This
effect must be activated during your opponent's
For a second, let's
ignore those stats. Those stats won't get
you ANYWHERE. I could use a Skull
Servant if I wanted those stats.
We're going to look at the effect.
This little critter
can stop the attack of a BEWD or similar monster
in its tracks. Well, not really. If
they're attacking a monster, the monster will
still be destroyed (if it would normally be),
but you won't lose any LP. Of course, if
that BEWD attacks you directly, you just saved
yourself 3000 LP. Robbin' Goblin
doesn't like this card. White
Magical Hat doesn't
like this card. Masked Sorcerer
doesn't like this card. Any beatdown-worthy
card hates this card. Too bad it only
blocks one monster for one turn, or it would be
broken. Currently, there is no way to
block this effect, even in the Japanese OCG.
It makes a nice surprise when your opponent
tries to finish you off. It can give you
that extra one turn you need to draw a Raigeki/Dark
Hole that will give you a chance to
win. Of course, Waboku
can do the same thing, and that affects all your
opponent's monsters, and your monsters still
survive. This guy is useful in stalling
decks (Exodia decks like this
critter), but not really worth a spot.
None, really, at
least until we get Multiply.
Multiply makes this card playable.
of space: If
you're using beatdown, you'd rather draw a La
Jinn or Dark Elf than
If you use some kind
of stall deck (which, in my opinion, is a bad
idea unless it's Exodia or Shield & Sword),
throw 1 or 2 of these critters in.
Otherwise, keep it in your binder. Or,
trade it for a Tribute to the Doomed
or a more useful Super Rare.
Kuriboh gets a 2.1.
It can do stuff, but it's normally a waste
