Needle Worm

The potential that deckout had was destroyed when Book of Taiyou got limited and Cyber Jar banned back when. Even with Taiyou back, there's no longer a Cyber to flip, Shallow Grave, Taiyout to reflip, etc...

5 cards just isn't enough. Deckout decks need a consistent stall engine; they don't have that anymore. Messenger of Peace is usually ducked under by recruiters, Don, and other like monsters, and Gravity Bind and Level Limit - Area B are limited to 1 per deck. Odds are, this will HELP your opponent by giving them Treeborn Frog in the Graveyard, so they can revive it and smash you with a Monarch next turn, or throw enough monsters into the Graveyard that you can use your Pot of Avarice. Also, let's not forget the old standby of Premature Burial.

It was supposed to be so good, but ended up being worthless in tournament-caliber play.

1/5 all
 

Coin Flip
Needle Worm belongs in one deck; Ghandipants. That deck is a particularly fun one, too. It uses Morphing Jar #2 with Morphing Jar, Needle Worm and a few stall monsters to cycle through the opponent's deck at ludicrous speed while hiding behind stall. There, it sends 5 cards from the deck to the graveyard. A very good thing in a deckout deck. =)

Ghandipants/Deckout: 4.8/5 (there might be better choices, but prolly not)
Everywhere else: 1.1/5

Needle Worm

Needle worm was a card that a long time ago was only available through TP3 as the Ultra Rare for the set. Deckout has never really been good except for the OTK deckout, which this card isn't good in.

This card along with Morphing Jar's, lots of Stall could be OK, but it never seems to be good enough. I know plenty of people have tried.

2/5.

Needle Worm

Back when Tsuky was legal I'd run two of these as tech. The ability to dump1/8 of your opponents deck into the Graveyard is one of the most powerful effects to date. Allowing us to rid future threats, give away potential cards in our opponents hand or on their field, and letting us see that Nobleman Hit the Graveyard making a set frog safe.

Insect decks love this, mill no longer exists in its true form. But Needle Worm is a clever tech card.

Give it a try, the results are always good. UNLESS YOUR OPPONENT TOP DECKS A POT OF AVARICE AND YOU SEND 5 MONSTERS TO THE AFTERLIFE.

3.9/5

How I long for the Ultra Rare Version of this. How I long for the Ultra Rare Version DB2 Jinzo.

Needle Worm

Needle Worm is a good card. I remember when this critter was still an Ultra Rare. Those were the days…

Anyway, we all know what Needle Worm is good at: Decking you out.

Believe it or not I’ve seen some Deck-out decks made in this format and they actually work! Yea, it’s no joke. They aren’t nearly as fast as the Empty Jar decks from way back since there’s no Cyber Jar, but you have to take the old-school “slow” approach with Desert Sunlight and various Stall cards. It still works though. Try it.

Last Word: I wouldn’t tech this card in a regular deck, though it’s kind of funny when your opponent loses 5 cards from their deck. Who knows this might actually work as a tech card. Anyone had any success with that? Email me at: deathjester86@gmail.com.

I’ve received over 160 e-mails in the last two weeks alone from the readers of my Pojo.com Card of the Day Articles. I’m very grateful for the support and I encourage you to e-mail me more decks. I’ve answered about half of these e-mails and due to the extreme demand of my deck advice I have a two week minimum wait time. Rest assured, I REALLY take a careful look at each deck and how it works within the current metagame standards. The metagame is always evolving and I’m right here to help you construct a deck that will perform exceptionally.

E-mail me any Advanced format decks you may have and I will do my best to answer them as promptly as possible.

Also, you can e-mail me even if you don’t have any decks to submit. I can answer your questions about deck building, tournament play, team management, individual player success, etc. Just ask me. Here’s my e-mail: deathjester86@gmail.com.
