Scapegoat

First thing first, you HAVE to have at least 4 open slots in your Monster Zone otherwise you cannot activate this card. You can't summon a Monster and then Activate Scapegoat on the same turn. Setting a Monster is fine though. If you activate this card, and then a Cyber Jar's flip occurs on the same turn, all Lv. 4 or below Monsters that you pick up as result of Cyber Jar's effect will go to the Graveyard.

The best part I like about this card is that it is a Quickplay Magic. It's best used when your opponent tries to destroy it either by Mystical Space Typhoon or Heavy Storm. Getting 4 Goat tokens to stall is amazing. This card can buy you anywhere from 1 to 4 turns. It also combos with Cannon Soldier/Amazon Archer and United We Stand.

Right now, this card is pretty good. But in the next set, Legacy of Darkness (coming out in May), there will be more Monsters with built in Fairy Meteor Crush. This would hurt you if you run too many Scapegoats, Goblin Attack Forces, or Flip Effect Monsters... Right now, it has a higher rating...

Rating: 4/5  
wartortle32 This monster lets you summon 4 goat tokens in defense mode. The tokens have stats of level 1, 0 attack, and 0 defense with no effect.

There has been much confusion over what monster tokens are. To clear it up, tokens basically represent a monster. You can use anything to represent a token. I like to use quarters or other cards.

This card is a great defender. Especially against jinzo since this is a quickplay. But not only can you use it for defense, you can use it for offense too. With united we stand and another monster, the equipped monster gains 4000 attack and defense with these 4 goats.

I give it a 4/5. Very versatile card as it can be used for both offense and defense.

SDJ-041
Scapegoat
Type: Quick-Play Magic
When this card is activated, you cannot summon any monster in the same turn (including Flip Summon and Special Summon). Place 4 "Sheep Tokens" (Beast-type/EARTH/1 Star/ATK 0/DEF 0) in Defense Position on your side of the field. The tokens cannot be used as a Tribute for a Tribute Summon.

Since Martin doesn't want me doing rhymes anymore, I'll make a haiku instead.

Scapegoat, 4 small goats
Made to take the blame of all
And be super annoying

(I'll get better at this, I promise =/)

This is one of those cards that you'll either love or hate. You can love it because it provides you with 4 temporary stalling monsters, works great after an opposing Raigeki/Dark Hole to protect yourself, and makes great ammo for Cannon Soldier/Amazon Archer. Plus, you can use them for effects like Share the Pain and Horn of Heaven, not to mention the obvious (and much publicized) combo with United We Stand to get a +4000 monster. You'll hate it if you're on the recieving end ^_^;;;

Score: 3.5 (yes, it's short today, but I'm in a hurry =/)
