Friday - Big Eye

Big Eye reads: FLIP: See the top 5 cards from the top of your Deck, arrange them in any order desired, and replace them onthe top of the Deck.

Big Eye is a fairly interesting card with a unique ability. It's best purpose, in my opinion, serves in Exodia based decks.

With 2/2/2-3 Sangan, Witch of the Black Forest and Big Eye, you can pull off Exodia much smoother. Big Eye is best used while attacked in Reverse Defense Mode. This allows you to control what you draw on your very next turn after your opponent finishes.

Always Make sure to make the best possible arrangement with Big Eye, because as soon as it's done you won't beable to change it unless you have another Big Eye.

Rating: 2.3/5

Really only shines in heavy Exodia based decks.

Fri- Big Eye
 
Last CotD pick for me. ;-;
 
Oh well, this card is THE MOST UNDERRATED CARD IN THE GAME.
 
No, I am NOT joking.
 
This card WILL save you if you can play it correctly. It is the PokeDex for Yu gi oh.
Stop laughing! This card pwnz anything and everything when used correctly! (And don’t listen to Zap. He’s a liar. >=O )
 
Upon flippage, you look and REARRANGE the top five cards in your deck. That monster reborn WAS five turns away, not it is next turn! Ohh, looky here. I have a Pot of Greed coming up… That means I can pick my next two cards to draw… Oh geez! My next monster was four cards away! At least I can bring him up sooner…
 
It WILL save you. But you MUST play it correctly. How? Well, I can’t tell you. -_- It varies from game to game so frequently… Besides, not even I can properly use it at times. =\
 
Just remember, if you’re debating weather or not to bump a monster before a Magic, bump the monster. Your opponent has a Raigeki waiting for you. -_-
 
Oh and if THEY use this, draw and only set a m/t, move all but one of your monsters into defense mode; they drew Mirror Force. =P
 
Rating: 4.8/5 ­ Big Eye = Draw Power and Control in one. Plus the attack r not bad. >_>;;

have been gone for quite a bit, yes. Heart surgery for my grandpa takes precendence over the internet, but, I have returned, for better or for worse. We've had very interesting cards, and I would've loved to review them, but, I was unable to. Anyway, on to the card of the day. This one is my favorite cards. That'd be Big Eye. The potential it has is unbelievable, and it is quite the weird fact that it was overlooked until a couple weeks or so after the release of Metal Raiders. All is well, however, because Big Eye is getting the respect it deserves. Nay, the respect is demands. This card is gamebreaking, and creates aspects of the game not otherwise seen. At least not as dominating!

What's the best part of Big Eye? Its effect lowers the luck exponentially. In Pokémon, this was known as the Pokédex, and it sucked. Why? The ratio of cards was higher, and the draw power simply made arranging a meager five cards not necessary. However, in Yu-Gi-Oh!, decks are much smaller. This means you have a much higher chance of drawing a gamewinning card in the next five turns. There are a couple basic skills in this game. Lowering luck, so that you can be consistent free of your draws, and conserving your hand and limiting your opponent's. Obviously, Big Eye deals with the former. It completely eliminates draw luck for five turns, granted that you have strong cards throughout your deck, and do not use useless cards. That power is amazing, and worth a place in ANY deck.

There's also skill in how you arrange the five cards. It may seem obvious that you'll want that Raigeki, but perhaps you'd best get other cards before it. It adds a tremendous skill level into the game definitely not otherwise experienced. Consistency wins, and being consistent requires controlling your luck. For me, enough praise for this card can never be achieved. The stats, on the other hand, are, well, bad for a level four. However, they are definitely not bad for an effect monster. Quite to the contrary, they are quite good for an effect monster. Of course, combat with other monsters will usually result in failure, but it is good for a good direct damage hit.

The combinations of cards for this guy is...incredible. Afraid of using that Card Destruction? See what'll come up, and then use it if it's worthwhile. With Pot of Greed, it's still incredible. Draw two cards that you specifically choose. It combos extremely well with every single card, or near to it. It is simply a beast when you get to plan your future strategy, and your opponent is left with few options.

Rambling on seems to be what I am quite capable of, but, again, this is a truly great card that should never be overlooked. For serious combat, it is INCREDIBLE. High levels of skill will be displayed, and any boost to the overall luck aspects (though with Big Eye it does become skill, not luck) will basically make it quite certain of your victory. In casual play, it's quite fun to use, simply because it looks cool and has an amusing effect.

Rating: 4.9 - The stats aren't perfect, but that is definitely not what it should be used for. Big Eye can be absolutely broken with a skilled player. Use it in all your decks, if you have room - controlling luck can never hurt...you.
