Creature Swap

I don't understand why Konami couldn't keep the name at Forced Transfer...

Anyway, I really like this card. The obvious use is to switch one of your weaker Monster for one your opponent's stronger ones. Now it's time for some combos. =)

One of the best Monsters to Swap around are Monsters like Witch of the Black Forest, Sangan, Nimble Momonga, Giant Germ and Mystic Tomato (because you would still get the effect). You can also play a Sinister Serpent in attack Mode and then Swap it. Then attack for a lot of damage. Not to mention that it works with Scapegoat tokens as well. Since almost everyone will play Yata-Garasu (if they can get it), you can also "give" your Yata away. At the end of turn, Yata will return to owner's hand so your Creature Swap just became a permanent Change of Heart. Nice. This card will be Semi-Limited to 2-per-deck once the LOD Restrictions is updated.

Rating: 4.3/5 
wartortle32 Creature Swap

This magic cards lets both players select one of their monsters and switch control of them with each other. 

Finally, griggle and ameba have a use. There are many possible combos that you can pull off with this card. For example, you can flip a man eater bug to destroy 1 opponent's monster, and then give them your man eater for another one of their monsters, and then pummel the weak man eater for alot of damage. Or you could give the opponent one of your spirit monsters, which you'll get back to your hand at the end of your turn anyway so you get a permanent change of heart.

I give this card a 4/5. It's definitely a possible game-winning card for you.

Friday - Creature Swap
 
Our LoD preview week concludes today with an annoying and unique Magic card that you should prepare for, and will probably be restricted to 2.
 
This card can cause some pretty interesting situations.  Of course, it's probably best to use this when your opponent only has one monster, so you know exactly what you're going to get.  Note that both players must have at least one monster on the field in order to use this.
 
Two of the most annoying combinations with this card are:
1. Creature Swap + Yata-Garasu (or any other spirit)
2. Creature Swap + Scapegoat + (optional) Trample (Fairy Meteor Crush effect) monster
 
If you use Creature Swap, and give your opponent a Spirit monster, the Spirit monster will return to your hand at the end of your turn, but you keep your opponent's monster.  This card just makes Yata that much more deadly.  (Yes, you should be using Yata for his draw-sealing effect, but this isn't a bad alternate effect.)
 
You can also use Scapegoat, then Creature Swap.  You get a monster, they get a 0/0 token.  If you have a monster with Trample (Fairy Meteor Crush effect) like Mad-Sword Beast, Spear Dragon, or Airknight Parshath, you can then attack the token for basically a direct attack.  Now, isn't that just evil?
 
The only thing that prevents this from being kind of more broken is the little part about not being able to change the battle position.  This hurts if you manage to get a Magician of Faith, Penguin Soldier, or other flip effect monster from your opponent.  However, that doesn't hamper this card not enough to not use it.
 
I predict that most people will play at least 1 of this card, and really adventurous people will test out 2.  It's an Ultra Rare, so if you get 1, be happy.
 
Score: 3.5
