Ultimate Offering
 
Ahh, back to the old page.  Now I might actually write these instead of procrastinating and ending up missing the entire week because of it.  (I'm lazy :p)
 
Anyway, this week is full of restricted cards.  Ultimate Offering is restricted for one reason and one reason only -- its combination with Gadget monsters.  Swarming is common in Yu-Gi-Oh; Six Samurai does it, Zombies do it, but those decks have methods to work around, and if the swarm goes bad, your opponent has wasted the majority of their hand/their entire hand.
 
With Gadgets, you could pay 2,000 LP to turn one gadget in your hand to five Gadgets on the field (and the sixth in your hand).  If the swarm goes bad (Torrential/Mirror Force/Needle Ceiling/System Down), you didn't really lose any card presence, and in all of those cases except System Down, one of the deck's two copies of Pot of Avarice lets the Ultimate Offering cycle start all over again if the Gadget player has the life to do so.
 
Ultimate Offering and a Gadget is a combination where a player can put up to 6,600 damage on the field for 2 cards and 2,000 LP.  The last time we had anything similar to that -- Card Trooper and Machine Duplication -- Trooper got limited to end that.  This is slightly harder to pull off, but still needed nerfed to the point where you didn't have 3 of each Gadget and 3 Offerings to make an OTK out of it.
 
Ultimate Offering on its own gets a 3/5.

Monday

We've got a good week for you folks, and we start with Ultiamte Offering, which seems to fall in the "Forgotten Trap" category, but is it worth playing? Let's see.

Ultimate Offering is a Continuous Trap, which is the biggest downside this card has. With so many thing floating around like Mobius, Raiza, and even the potential for double Jinzo and double Royal Decree, it's a tough format to be a Trap, let alone a Continuous Trap.

This card has some good uses though. You can use it during your opponent's Battle Phase, which could prevent a direct attack, and for 500 Lifepoints, that could be a bargain. It's a solid enough card, but not for many decks. It can help you tribute for something a little faster, and you can use it to swarm a little.

As stated, it's a tough format, but it has potential.

Well, I’ve been awfully busy with school, and a new job is finally coming over the horizon for me, so I apologize for only popping in here on occasion over the past month or so….

Anyway, today we review Ultimate Offering. A normal trap that lets you pay 500 life points for an extra normal summon during either: a) your main phase one or two, or b) your opponent’s battle phase. Also, keep in mind that you are still required to tribute if you wish to normal summon monster.

Obviously, this won’t work in very many decks, as you are obviously running through your hand at an alarming rate if you continue to summon monsters. The only deck that really benefits is quite obviously, Gadgets. Summon a Gadget, get another, then another, then another. You fill your field with Gadgets, follow it up with Heavy or Giant Trunade, play Limiter Removal and smack them upside the head for well more than game.

Other than that, I don’t see any other decks in the current format that could make use of this card. So, if you play Gadgets and Limiter, you should be playing this, otherwise, don’t.

Traditional: 1/5 (Can’t see Gadgets fairing too well here)
Advanced: 5/5 (In a gadget deck)
Art: 3/5
General Zorpa Ultimate Offering
 
This card was limited a long time ago due to the possibility of a gadget OTK and the OTK with Black Ptera and Cannon Soldier. It works wonders. People think that Double Summon is good, Offering is better. It does cost 500 lifepoints, but we all pay 800 for Brain Control and Premature Burial. It works well with Gemini monsters as well as the Six Samurai. I believe that this card will be seeing some increased play, so hang on to those copies of Champion Pack Ultimate Offering. You never know when it will be broken...
