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

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