Welcome to a new week of cards! We open this week with an Insect from Shadow of Infinity, Anteatereatingant.

I have to say, I really don't care for this card. It is a Level 5 monster, but you can't summon it by tributing for it. You have to send two Magic or Trap cards from your side of the Field to the Graveyard to Special Summon it.

Then, once per turn, Anteatereatingant can destroy one Magic or Trap card on your opponent's Field. That's good, but then, if you choose to do so, it can't attack. Furthermore, it only has 2000 attack, so a Cyber Dragon (which is easier to Special Summon) can run right over it.

I wouldn't use this, even in an insect Deck. Sorry folks, it really isn't that good.

Ratings:

1.5/5 all, even in Insect Decks

Art: 3.5/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

I've been telling people for a while now that this is one of the best common monsters made to date. It should never be used in the main deck, but in the side deck this guy offers so much versatility it makes me happy to win games I shouldn't due to it. Lets see...

Gem Beast
Burn
Gadget
Stall
Volcanic Doomfire
Gravekeeper's
etc.

I have used this card against every one of these decks and been successful with it. The key to using it is to sacrifice Premature Burial, Royal Decree, and other cards that have paid for themselves. I've also used this against Demise (and Cyber Stein) to add an extra 2000 attacker on the field. We all have to face the fact that smashing ground is useless against Gem Beast/stall, thus this card allows us to utilize a card that may or may not be useful if were unsure. I find it funny so many of my opponents have never seen this used.

4/5

For the side deck only because it offers versatility and surprise. If you run this in the main deck an OTK better be present someplace b/c it basically gives the game away when used against Monarch (or anything else not dependent upon continuous spells/traps)

Hey all! Once again I vanished for two weeks….got hung up with final exams and other issues…but I’m back for another week of reviews.

Today’s card is over a year old, and it’s never seen any serious play either…

SOI-EN022 Anteatereatingant
Earth/Insect/5/2000/500
Effect: This card cannot be Normal Summoned of Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by sending 2 Spell or Trap Cards on your side of the field to the Graveyard. This card can destroy 1 Spell or Trap Card on your opponent's side of the field, but it cannot attack this turn if you activate this effect.

So, you give up 2 spell/traps on your side of the field to bring out this 2000 attack bug. That right there doesn’t say much good about this guy. Giving up two, usually good, spell/trap(s) is not a good thing. And only having 2000 attack means it falls prey to everything Cyber Dragon and up.

The effect allows it to destroy a spell trap on the field, which ain’t bad…..but then you have to give up attacking with it, which leaves it a sitting duck for the Cyber Dragon or whatever is to come next turn.

In short, too steep a cost, for a sub-par effect. Mobius screams much louder than this card.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1.5/5
Art: 3/5

2000/500

Anteatereatingant, wow that is a mouthful to say. I don't really like this card too much. First off it only has 2000 ATK, and that is nothing to Cyber Dragon and also Monarchs. This card is seemingly useable in Crystal Beast decks, but it's not as good as Magna-Slash Dragon. Sure Magna-Slash Dragon you have to tribute for, but the effect is really good and you can still attack. With Anteatereatingant you have to say goodbye to 2 spell or traps on your field, and that isn't always nice to do. Sure it can open up your row to bring back Treeborn, but then your opponent doesn't need to use Heavy Storm. I only see this card fit in Crystal Beasts, but even so, there are better options. Using the effect makes it unable to attack, which is a huge price to pay for such an effect. There are a lot better cards out there than this. Sure you can Metamorphosis it out for Dark Balter the Terrible, but you have to give up so much just to do that, usually not worth it.

Traditional: 1/5 Does nothing here
Advanced: 1/5 Still does nothing, if it had more attack and it could attack after using the effect then it would be a lot better. Better alternatives are Spell Striker, Magna-Slash Dragon and Gravi-Crush Dragon.

Anteatereatingant

This was certainly an interesting card when it was released...and if it wasn't for many decks having better ways to clear out M/Ts or make use of its own, it would have seen more play.

A 2,000 ATK Special Summon isn't a bad thing -- it's just 100 shy of Cyber Dragon, and people play 3 of that in almost all decks. Having to give up two S/Ts is rough, but fair. To balance that out, it can give up attacking to pick off opposing M/Ts. It could leave you vulnerable (especially with how many things the opponent can throw out that have over 2k ATK) but if they can't get rid of it, you can keep nuking S/Ts and clearing the way for other monsters.

Honestly though, with Mobius, Dust Tornado, that new monster you can tribute to destroy a face-up Spell or Trap on the field (I forget its name), among other things, this guy really isn't needed. He was good in the draft for that set but not much else.

2.25/5
