The card is basically worthless.  If your opponent takes it and it's face up, you gain 3,000 LP.  Not real useful.  It's not often your opponent will simply hand you that kind of life when they can just run little Griggle over.  I can't see a deck where it is useful.

Griggle -- Tuesday

Introduction: Yeah! I gain 3000 Life Points hahah!

When this card is face-up on the field and control shifts to your opponent,
you gain 3000 Life Points. This effect can only be used once as long as this
card remains face-up on the field.

Why should you use it?
*Gains 3000 Life Points
*Counters Change of Heart / Snatch Steal

Why shouldn't you use it?
*Horrible Stats
*Gaining Life is no good
*Must be done through shifting controllers


Reasons: Well today's is Griggle, this is a nice counter to Change of Heart
/ Snatch Steal, if they do, you gain 3000 Life Points yeah! But other than
those two, this card is horrible. It has horrible stats. Also gaining life
has never EVER been good. Finally shifting controllers is a bit harder,
though you can combo it in with Fairy's Hand Mirror isn't isn't that great.

Rating: This card isn't that great. Though more cards in the future make it
better, no real use for it. For htis reason it get's a 1.5.

Conclusion: Griggle me this griggle me that. Tell me whether I should use
griggle or griggle me not? Griggle me not!

wartortle32 Tuesday - Giggle

Today's COD is giggle.  It's got a pretty cool effect.  If this monster goes under the opponent's control while face up, you gain 3000LP.

The effect is very good, but how often will you be able to use it?  Currently, the only way this is going to the opponent's control is if the opponent uses Change of heart or snatch steal on it.  Obviously, no smart duelist will do that.  The only real way you will be able to use the effect is if you use Fairy's Hand Mirror on the opponent's change of heart.  Keep in mind that giggle must be face up for the effect to work.  But even that wont happen too often.  The opponent will get suspicious if you leave a giggle in attack mode.  They'll probably kill it before they use change of heart.

I give this card a 1.8/5.  The effect simply is too hard to use.  Later on in other sets, we will get cards that forces the opponent to gain control of your monster such as magic box of death or forced transfer.  Once those cards come out, giggle or ameba can be quite deadly.

Triple X When this card is face-up on the field and control
shifts to your opponent, you gain 3000 Life Points.
This effect can only be used once as long as this card
remains face-up on the field.

Intro: If you want me it will cost you. <Griggle is a girls' best friend> lol. Stop copying my in Intro's Yonex. :)

Advantage: The only advantage this card has is you gain 3000 LP if your opponent takes control of this card. If there is a way to get its effect you gain a nice 3000 LP which is good to have.

Disadvantage: Well, what I don't get is why would your opponent take control of this card if he/she knows their opponent gains 3000 LP. Also who would take control of this card if its attack is horrible 350 attack. This card is a waist of deck space and has no type of defense or offense to make up for its effect. I can't picture anyone playing this card in their deck. Another reason why this card is bad b/c the card has to be face up on the field and can't flipped face down. Many people COH flipped monsters b/c they want the flipp effect.

Combos: Can't think of any on the top of my head.

Personal Rating: 1/5

Tournament play: 1/5

Overall Rating: 1

Griggle
When this card is face-up on the field and control shifts to your opponent, you gain 3000 Life Points. This effect can only be used once as long as this card

*Side Note: DOH! thats what i get for writing COTDs Late at night. I noticed that megamorph doubles before modifiers x_X my bad i write these at 12AM so my bad ill make sure to proofread more often x_X*

Anyway Griggle.... I doubt this monster will ever "shift" to your opponents side of the field. But if it ever does hey you get 3000 LPs. Theres no good combo for this card at all. Its gotta be face up so right there it will definitely smacked by the usual 1800 ATK monster. Nah it sucks.. If you really want life points check out nimble momonga (WEE SQUIRREL XD) and get 1000 LP plus 2 special summons of itself.

Rating 1.0

Today's Tuesday, and we're looking at a small little plant thingy, Griggle.
 
Card Text:
Earth/Plant/1/350/300
Effect: When this card is face-up on the field and control shifts to your opponent, you gain 3000 Life Points. This effect can only be used once as long as this card remains face-up on the field.
Analysis:
I don't need to write a Pulitzer-quality review to express my opinions of this card.
 
For the time being, this card is worthless.  There is NO way your opponent will EVER be stupid enough to snatch this card if they know what it is.  I would take Ameba over this any day, as I'd rather bring my opponent 2000 LP closer to defeat than delay the inevitable.
 
Soon, there will be cards that will force control of monsters to your opponent, but I would still play Ameba (in fact, Magical Box of Death (e. Mystic Box) + Ameba is a semi-broken combo*).
 
*Magical Box of Death destroys one opposing monster and gives your opponent control of one of your monsters (you get to choose both).  The combo is to use Magical Box of Death to destroy a threatening opposing monster, and shift Ameba into your opponent's control, doing 2000 LP damage.  Then, use a strong monster to destroy Ameba in attack mode and deal 1500+ more damage.  Burner decks will use 3 of each, just for the cheap damage.
 
Should YOU play it?
No.  No.  No.
 
Score:
Griggle can do stuff, but not very well, so it gets a 1.3.  OK, so it can't do stuff.  I would rather play The Immortal of Thunder and take my chances =\
