It's T3 day, as we look at a card who has a two part
name, both which start with T...the Tongue Twister.
Well, we have here a Level 6 monster, requiring a
tribute, with 400 attack and 300 defense, of the
Dark attribute, who is a Fiend.
How unremarkable...you do get to draw two cards when
this guy goes to the Graveyard however...wait...only
if he is sent from the Field to the Gr aveyard...still
not so bad. Again, wait...only if he was tribute
summoned, and then sent from the Field.
It's not worth a tribute summon just for the two
cards folks, I'm sorry.
1/5 all around, it does something, but takes too
much effort and detracts too much.
Art: 3/5 A giant snake-like tongue, with one eye,
who stands on one foot? Scary as hell!

Today we look at a secret rare from the new set,
A tribute monster with 400 attack and 300 defense.
This can’t be good! The effect lets you draw two
cards when this card was tribute summoned, then sent
to the graveyard. I just can’t justify a tribute for
a puny monster for an effect like this. You can’t
even tribute SET it to avoid the damage you will
likely take in getting its effect off!
If you want little monsters that draw, try Skelengel,
Crystal Seer, Dekoichi, etc.
Dark/Fiend/Effect Level 6 400 ATK/300 DEF
If this card was Tribute Summoned, when it is sent
from the field to the Graveyard, draw 2 cards and
remove this card from play.
I am sorry for you if you pulled this one and not
Necroface or Soul Taker. I would not complain if I
pulled a Secret Rare (I only got Mist Archfiend),
but still…there are better Secret Rares.
This card’s effect is not optional, meaning it will
activate as long as requirement has been met.
Luckily, that removes potential problems in
chaining. If only there was no “If this card was
Tribute Summoned” part…
While D.D. Crow cannot stop this card, Macro
Cosmos/Dimensional Fissure can. D.D. Warrior Lady
may also hinder this card’s activation. With 400 ATK
and even lower 300 DEF, Dark Magician of Chaos
(there is almost nothing that can withstand 2800 ATK,
but still…) will just eat this tongue in one bite.
Although it is searchable with Sangan, it has to be
sent from the hand to the field by Tributing a
monster, then to the Graveyard. Assuming Treeborn
Frog was Tributed, this card requires a summon, a
card (itself), and some LP, because Setting a Level
5+ through Tribute is NOT a Tribute Summon. 400 ATK
will block Magician of Faith and Spirit Reaper,
Let’s set the best possible scenario. You have an
active Ultimate Offering on the field (-1), and a
floater. 3 Tongue Twisters in hand. Summon 1st one
by wasting the summon (I will never count summon as
a card advantage directly, but it still is an
important factor). Sacrifice 1st one, summon 2nd,
summon 3rd by sacrificing 2nd. By using 4 cards,
1000 LP, a Summon, and a floater, you received 2
extra cards. Why not go for Exodia? Win the duel
with an extra card.
Monarchs give an extra card (or get rid of one of
opponent) with a floater and a summon. Only if
Tongue Twister had, say, 2000 ATK, it would not be
so bad. The stats ruin the card for once…I will take
it back. The stats are really bad though.
Traditional: 1.1/5 Not a chance.
Advanced: 2.2/5 Only if it came out before
Monarchs…then it might have had a shot.
This is one of the three cards that won the Create a
Card contest. It is not nearly as good as his
brethren. You need to tribute summon him, which is
the major downside of this card, and then you remove
him from play when he is destroyed in order to draw
two cards. His low ATK values and lackluster effect
make him one of the worst Secret Rares of all time.
And no, he does not get his effect unless he was
