Metamorphosis

It was good before; it’s still good now. Morphing Sheep Tokens to TER, used Magicians of Faith to TER, Different Dimension Dragons or Vampire Lords or Airknight Parshaths or Guardian Sphinxes to Dark Balter the Terrible, opposing Lava Golems to Gatling Dragons or Fusilier Dragons to King Draguns…the list goes on.

If you have a bunch of Fusions, you might as well toss in Metamorphosis. It’s no longer as great as it was, what with TER and Scapegoat both restricted and Sinister Serpent banned – but it’s still worth using.

There are a lot of decks where Metamorphosis would work “best” now, so I’ll not even specify.

5/5

This was a pretty rentsy week. And by rentsy, I mean kinda boring.
 

ExMinion OfDarkness
Metamorphosis

We still have nightmares about this card in Trinity Format. The opponent bringing out yet another Thousand-Eyes Restrict, just when you get something good on the field, and suddenly the game slows to a screeching halt. Or maybe you were lucky enough to have Book of Moon to stop an Airknight Parshath's attack but then that Parshath morphs into a Dark Balter in Main Phase 2, leaving the Graceful you've been holding useless.

How good is Metamorphosis now?

They pretty much killed it.

TER is no longer something to rely on, as (1) Scapegoats are 1/deck, (2) Magician of Faith is 1/deck, (3) Sinister Serpent's gone, and (4) no other 1-star monsters are really playable except Relinquished in a hardcore deck focusing on it.

We do have Cyber Dragon which can be easily morphed into Balter...and then the opponent plays THEIR Cyber Dragon and kills it. Or your Balter attacks into one of your opponent's three Sakuretsu Armors. And without BLS-Envoy to special summon, there's no easy 8-star to Morph into Cyber Twin Dragon.

I didn't see a Thousand-Eyes Restrict hit the field all day at the Regionals I recently attended; I only saw two Metamorphosis's in total the whole day.

No point here.

1.5/5 (never thought I'd be saying that...)
 

Coin Flip
I don't really know what to say about Morph now. I have limited experience with the new environment, but I can tell you right now that without the powerhouse LV1's we were running before, the use of this card has diminished. A Morph from Cyber Dragon to Balter with Decrees is, of course, hugetacular, but the versatility of this card lay in its ability to stall the game and gain card advantage in the process as well as put a DARK in the graveyard. It worked like that despite the immediate effects of playing Morph to get out TER.

Now it's meh. Balter can break through the commonly played Newdoria, Pyramid Turtle, and D. D. Assailant, but can't do anything against the also quite common Cyber Dragon and Spirit Reaper. Senshi is just plain meh. That leaves the only purpose of this card to get out the uber high levels.

You know, I'll pass. It's fun tech in a few decks, but I'll pass.

General: 2.4/5
 
dawnyoshi Geez…this card was the bane to so many lives. Now it has been restricted, and it’s still powerful. Now it’s just not run in multiple copies.

Morph a Cyber Dragon into Balter. Lock their spells and hope to Hell they don’t have a Snatch Steal. Morph a Magician of Faith or a sheep token into Thousand-Eyes Restrict and become hated by everyone at the tournament. Morph Nephthys into Cyber Twin Dragon and win the duel. Yeah, you see where I’m going with this. It’s a bit situational, but it is devastating. It’s hard to say if this card lost much playability, really. It’s kind of bad in traditional (sans morphing something into Balter), and it’s useless in limited, but Metamorphosis is a powerhouse in the advanced format.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 4/5
Limited: Play Meta here and lose/5
 

Dark Paladin
As this week of newly restricted cards comes to a close, we come to Metamorphosis. In this review, just replace the words "Limiter Removal" with "Metamorphosis" and "Machines" with "Morph". Seriously, this is the same scenario.

Morph decks were also tremendously hurt by this. Thousand Eye Restrict, Metamorphosis, AND Magician of Faith were all restricted.
The three focal cards of a Morph deck. Scapegoat also (in)directly hurt Morph decks with its restriction.

Metamorphosis is still good though, whether you summon Cyber End Dragon or Thousand Eye Restrict (or whatever else you so choose). As I already stated, my thoughts on Metamorphosis are almost identical as yesterday for my thoughts on Limiter Removal.

Ratings:

Traditional (Morph): 4.1/5 If morph can still function

Advanced (Morph): 4.6/5 If morph can still function

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
