Today's Tuesday, and
we're looking at another highly anticipated Equip, Megamorph.
If your Life Points are
lower than your opponent's, the original ATK of a
monster equipped with this card is doubled. If
your Life Points are higher, the original ATK is
At first glance, this
card would appear to be broken. Doubling a
monster's attack power can cause some real problems
for your opponent. With this, Summoned
Skull can go up to 5000
attack points, and even a Dark Elf
can go up to 4000. Imagine
putting this on a Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon
and performing a 6000 direct damage
I see two ways this card
can be used:
1. One-Turn KO
Oh, come on, everyone
knows this one. Devil Franken +
Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon + Megamorph is
basically a one turn knockout. This combo was
so broken that Megamorph had to be restricted to 1
in Japan for a brief period of time. (It has
since gone back to being unrestricted.)
Psycho-Suicide Combo Deck
Now this is a fun one.
Use cards such as Jirai Gumo, Dark Elf,
Solemn Judgment, Delinquent Duo, and
Confiscation to lower your Life Points
while slowly wittling your opponent down to not
quite as low, then clear the field, bring out a
heavy hitter, attach this, and it's all she wrote.
As an extension of this,
you can attach this to a monster when you have less
LP than your opponent, then attack so you have more
LP, so this card's attack power is halved.
Now, you can do one of two things:
Tailor of the Fickle to attach Megamorph
to an opposing monster, thus halving their attack
them into attacking, then destroy their monsters
with Mirror Force =D
This card also works
well to get around Messenger of Peace
by lowering your monster's attack power. Just
make sure they have more LP than you until you/they
get rid of MoP however, or you'll be in trouble.
Also, since this isn't
counted as a direct increase or decrease, this card
circumnavigates Reverse Trap, which
may become popular with the popularity of Axe
Should YOU play
I would at least
sideboard it. It can help you get out of
Megamorph gets a 3.5.
It's not a perfect card, but it can be abused either
by the attack increase or decrease.
I see it becoming almost as popular, if not more
popular than, Axe of Despair
eventually. (Just wait until we get Cyber-Stein
(Devil Franken) and Blue-Eyes
Ultimate Dragon. You will be shocked
about how many decks will adopt this combo.
It's that broken.)
