For once, we'll be reviewing a card that isn't a
It's a -2!
This card has so much working against it. You
have to use it in your Standby phase and wait
until next turn for its effect to actually do
anything (meaning your opponent can prepare for
it with what they do during their turn, whether
or not they activate certain Traps, etc.) You
have to discard a card -- that almost
automtically gets it thrown out of consideration
for any Deck I make. And finally, it doesn't
actually cost your opponent any cards -- it
prevents them from Summoning or setting.
This card's better version: Forced Back. It
negates a summon, can screw your opponent out of
Flip effects, and if used against a Tribute
Summon, breaks even in card advantage (as they
still lose their Tributed monster) and you
essentially gained a free turn on them.
Not much else to say here, except don't play
this card -- ever.
For the fourth time in a row, 1/5 all. Will
this streak extend through the end of the week?
In the interests of confusing some fellow, I wrote a
very bad review yesterday. Never you mind.
Anyway, today we've got Non-Aggression Area, a card
with a narrow scope that doesn't need to exist
anymore. N-AA used to be pretty good in some Last
Turn builds as a deterrent against them summoning a
monster. This wasn't that great as compared with
Jowgen the Spiritualist, however. Jowgen allowed you
to activate Last Turn without fear of them bringing
another monster out on the turn after your first.
This is slightly slower and has a slightly less
useful range of ability.
A card with similar scope currently seeing a bit of
tournament play is Forced Back. It's a similar
concept that doesn't require a discard and can be
activated in response to something, forcing them to
commit to setting more Spells or Traps.
Doesn't say much for this card. If you want this
kind of effect, Solemn Judgment, Forced Back, and
Compulsory Evacuation Device all offer a similar
effect for either a lower cost or a higher cost, but
with added versatility.
Non-Aggression Area is an interesting Trap, but one
that isn't that great. It could be an excellent card
to finish or win a duel with, but outside of
that...it's just a -1.
You give up Non-Aggression Area plus a discard, and
your opponent can't summon, set, or Normal Summon a
monster for thier next turn. A good effect, but too
heavy a cost, in my opinion.
1.75/5 all around
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
A card that shows just what delaying the inevitable
really means. You get a -2 just to make your
opponent wait one turn before getting another
monster. I don't think he'll care that much, as
there decks don't need one more turn quite that
badly. There are much better stalls in existence.
