SomeGuy Tuesday - Ordeal of the Traveler

PGD-042
Common
Continuous Trap

You can activate this card's effect when your opponent attacks. Your opponent randomly selects one card from your hand and calls the type of card (Magic, Monster, Trap). If your opponent calls it wrong, the attacking monster is returned to to it's owner's hand.


Heh, this can be a pretty annoying card at certain points during the duel. Although, it's only very effective while you're holding multiple cards in your hand. Not only will a good player call Magic or Monster more often than Trap, but they will also begin to catch on as the Duel goes by. Which means it ends up being a very useless card.

Add in the fact that the usual Jinzo, Mystical Space Typhoon, Heavy Storm, and Harpie's Feather Duster screw it over, and you have a very mediocre Continuous Trap card.

Good luck if you can use it to it's maximum potential.

1.9/5 
Dark Umbreon This card reminds me of Coin Flips for some reason *shudders*. Ordeal of a Traveler is a Continuous Trap card that can be activated when your opponent attacks. Then your opponent picks a card and guesses if its a Magic, Trap, or Monster. If he calls it wrong, the monster goes back to his hand.

This card is so evil. Its continuous, which makes it a real pain because you have to be lucky every time you attack with it on the field. If your opponent is running beatdown they are gonna get extreeeeemely stressed out. Not only that, but its a common! Wow! Wish I had it...

Anyway, once your opponents monster goes back to his/her hand, you have a chance to spring an attack while their monster is in their hand. This card can provide time and new draw phases to think about your opponents views.

When you have no cards in your hand, this is the last card you want. Its obviously going to be useless. Also when you have less cards in your hand, its easier to guess. Bleh.

Tournament Score: 3.7/5
Casual Score: 4/5

This is actually a pretty interesting card. It works for all of the opposing attacking monsters, and can actually mean trouble if correctly used. There are a couple of problems with this though. Not only is it a game of risk, but you are actually showing cards from your hand to the opponent. It would be a better idea to use a Waboku instead, and just project yourself from all monsters at once. The factor that makes Waboku better then Ordeal of Traveler is its ability to be chained to such cards as MST, Heavy Storm and Harpie’s Feather Duster (all seriously played cards in this game). If Ordeal of Traveler wasn’t as situational as mentioned, it would have more playability.

Casual: 2.5/5
Tournament: 1.8/10

Just a bit too risky for my taste.
