Usually I don't automatically give cards 1/5s
because there's a better card out there that does
the same thing. Even before the ban list, when CED
and BLS ran rampant, I still gave Chaos Sorcerer a
This card isn't going to get the same grace.
This is a watered-down, pathetic version of Dream
Clown. Lower ATK, lower level stars where it doesn't
need lower level stars. Dream Clown still gets under
Messenger of Peace and Gravity Bind, and this
doesn't. Even in a Beastdown I wouldn't play this.
Blade Rabbit is a rather nifty common released on
the understanding that Clown Control (see Yu-Gi-Oh!
CotD's Jan. 24, 2005) does not have enough to go for
it. Not really, it's fine, but now it's better.
Blade Rabbit is a friendly ally to Dream Clown. Both
are searchable by Last Will, Sangan, Giant Rat, and
this one is searchable in multiples by Rescue Cat.
Rescue Cat with Labyrinth of Nightmare or Stumbling?
Ouch. 2 cards destroyed in one move, with lotsa deck
thinning. That isn't the greatest sounding way of
going about things, but Clown Control is still
pretty damn good. They only need to stall for a turn
or so, and have gotten stuff like Stumbling,
Labyrinth of Nightmare, and also some rather nice
ways of abusing it. Zero Gravity comes to mind, and
Cyber Jar would assist in giving you stuff to
destroy to get some cheap advantage.
This guy just adds to the Clown Control Engine. I
have no doubt that he was intended for that purpose.
And he does a damn good job of that.
This card is remarkably similar to Dream Clown,
though ostensibly not quite as good (because of his
inferior stats). Nonetheless, it’s a good monster.
Yes, it’s weak; but its effect is what makes it
Blade Rabbit works very well in decks built for it.
Using cards that change battle position (such as
Zero Gravity) will allow you to destroy monster
after monster with your Blade Rabbit while your
opponent is unable to do anything – cause you just
keep changing HIS monsters’ battle positions when
they attack/killing them with Blade Rabbit. Very
Another good card to use in a deck like this is
Stumbling, a Continuous Spell which forces all
monsters into DEF upon being summoned. So you can
summon Blade Rabbit and watch him be switched
instantly to DEF, which will allow him to kill an
opponent’s monster just like that.
He’s too weak to inflict any real damage, but that
shouldn’t stop you from playing him alongside some
better attackers (Dream Clown does come to mind,
along with maybe Mataza?) for a very annoying, very
effective revived version of Clown Control.
As FET Week continues, we come to Blade Rabbit, a
weaker version of an old favorite.
BR’s stats are far from spectacular. In fact,
they’re anything but; 400 ATK allows it to destroy
Sinister Serpents and Magician of Faiths in battle,
and little else. It is however a Beast, giving it
the opportunity to be used in conjunction with
Enraged Battle Ox to gain a trample ability. Yet due
to hits ATK, it’s unlikely Trample would help it
When BR is switched from Attack Position to face-up
Defense Position, it can destroy a monster on the
opponent’s side of the field. The effect somewhat
makes up for it terrible ATK by allowing it to
destroy any monster it pleases. But it’s ATK is
still an issue; without the aid of a card like
Earthquake or Windstorm of Etaqua, chances are BR
will be destroyed before it gets a chance to change
This brings me to the previously mentioned “old
favorite”. Dream Clown, a monster from MRD, has an
identical effect and much better stats. Not only
should its 1200 ATK allow it to last much longer
than BR would, but it’s also a Warrior, giving it a
world of possibilities. Now I realize I’m not here
to be reviewing Dream Clown, but it would just be
smarter to use it instead of BR in any Deck, unless
of course you want to stick to the Beast theme…
which would be good… just not wise.
Advanced: 1/5. I should probably be rating this for
a Beast Deck, but Dream Clown is just so much
Traditional: 1/5. See Advanced.
Art: 4/5. AW! It’s cute enough that you wouldn’t
mind it gnawing your face off!
When this card is changed from Attack to Defense
posistion, destroy one monster on your opponents
side of the field.
This card is just screaming to be used in a Gravity
Bind deck. Maybe even involving Weenie Rush or
something. Get 3 Blade Rabbit on the field and have
at least 2 Gravity Bind activated. You'll have to be
careful since some Level
2 and 3 monsters will still be able to attack.
Especially since Blade Rabbit only has 400 attack
Outside of the aformentioned deck though, there
really isn't a reason to run Blade Rabbit, except
for fun. Though, for what it's worth, he IS a Beast,
so those of you running Beast decks go ahead and try
one if you're feeling ambitious.
This really isn't a terrible card, it just doesn't
have many uses.
Art: 3.5/5 Nice teeth
Only 1 day until Star Wars Episode III
