You don't want to draw it, and it's ability will seldom-to-never get used.  At this time, I don't see this card having any use in decks or boards.  I'm told it will be better later, but right now it's crap.
Rating : 1.5

Wednesday - Penguin Knight
 
Let's face it.  You only have one card to worry about that discards from your deck, and that's Gravekeeper's Servant.  How many people use that, anyways?  (you Bistro Butcher/CD people from yesterday, please stay out of this =X )  Anyways, there are cards in the future that may be a reason to side deck this (Needle Worm and Don Zaruug come to mind), but just don't worry about that right now.
 
Oh, and one more thing, the Painful Choice/Penguin Knight combo isn't legal.  Don't try it =X
 
Score: 1.8 (ok, so it does stuff, and it can help, but what are the odds its effect will activate?)
Yonex Penguin Knight -- Wednesday

Introduction: I get to shuffle my Graveyard into my library and you don't,
hahaha!

When this card is sent directly from your deck to the Graveyard by an
opponent's card effect, combine your graveyard cards with yout own deck,
shuffle them and form a new deck.

Why should you use it?
*Returns cards back to Library

Why shouldn't you use it?
*Doubtful the effect will work
*Weak stats

Reasons: The Pengin Knight is the card that we are looking at today. This
card first off, is basically another version of  Fiber Pod (Fiber Jar in
english, probably). Which shuffles, the Graveyard, field, and hand to the
Library and draw a new hand of 5. This card just returns card from the
Graveyard to the Library, which isn't that bad, if your going to burn all
your Magic and Trap quickly. Though, it is very hard to get the effect out,
because it has to be discarded from Library to Graveyard, and it has to be
discarded by your opponent, which makes it even harder. Currently, there are
maybe 1 card that can do this. But in the futhure, there will be more. With
it's weak stats, it makes this card a very doubutful card to get any good
rating.

Rating:This card soon will get a higher rating, but right now it just gets a
2.0. There isn't enough Library to Graveyard destruction yet. With Fiber Pod
around the corner, this card wont' see action.

Conclusion: The Penguin Knight will strike, but it doesn't have the ability
to strike just yet.

Obviously this little penguin is sideboard material only. Hes your answer to those pesky burner decks provided that you discard him from your deck with grave keepers servant. If you draw him into your hand hes completely worthless. Its best if you run 2-3 of these in your side deck and hope that you don't draw 1 or both of them in your opening hand >_<. Hes great when you get to use his effect after using all those good magic cards like raigeki and such. Who wouldn't wanna reuse those cards???? ^_^ anyway good card but side deck material only

Rating 3.0

IQ
Huh???

I'm confused. o.~ This guy has a pretty cool effect but when is it useful? Is there going to be a Millstone (Magic Reference) in Yugi or something like that? I guess this guy would be nice in a Side deck once the players start using a deck that would make him playable.

Since I don't have much to say about the card itself let's talk about it's art work. When I saw this card for the first time I could only say three things and they were "It's SOOOOOO CUTE!!!" and nobody can deny it. This card has one of the cutest pictures in the game, if you don't agree with me then you have to get in touch with your feminine side a little more. ;-p

Rating 1.3

Rating 4.3 (based on cuteness) ^.^

Craaaaaaaap. Penguin Knight has low stats and a terrible Effect in our current enviroment. If you can pull off the Effect some how, it's pretty cool. Especially if there aren't many cards in your deck left or are running out of Monsters. Don't count on it though, atleast not anytime soon.

Rating:  1.5/5
