BE SURE TO READ MY REVIEWS FOR THE PREVIOUSLY REVIEWED CARDS THIS WEEK...THEY ARE LATE, BUT UP NOW! I'M SURE MY BLACK ROSE DRAGON REVIEW WILL PISS PEOPLE OFF! Thank you...

All right, my reviews are late this week, and I apoogize. I was quite busy doing some last minute political calling and broadcasting in my area, but I got back to doing these. Mark of the Rose is a very interesting Equip Magic card, that is a whacked out version of Snatch Steal.

In short, you have to remove a Plant Monster from your Graveyard and then you control an opponent's monster. However, their is NO Lifepoint gain for your opponent, but they gain their monster back during your End Phase.

However, during your own Standby Phase, you gain control of the monster again. This card would be a lot better if the removal of the Plant monster wasn't in their, but for those of you playing Plants, or have enough for this to work, go ahead.

Ratings:

No rating, you aren't going to be able to splash it into a Deck with a few plants and hope it all works out.

A lot of people are saying that this card is a Plant version of Snatch Steal. This is simply not true. It is nowhere near as good as Snacth was, but it is still pretty good. You remove from play a Plant in your graveyard in order to steal an opponent's monster. Pretty good right? Well, kinda. As unlike Snatch Steal, it goes back to your opponent at your end phase, and then you get it back on your turn.

Pretty much it will be the major field clearer for the Plant deck, as you can do massive swings with Gigaplant, Lonefire Blossom and Tytannial, Princess of Camelias. There is not much else to say about this card, except for the fact that it is another 3 copies of Brain Control in a deck that can really abuse it, which is soething that we always like to see in our themed support to compete with generically good cards.

Basically if you play plants, you will play at least one copy of this card.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-4/5

This sounds a lot llike Snatch Steal to me. It is, but with a twist. Remove a plant monster from the grave to gain control of your opponent's monster. Taking an opponent's monster and using their effect against them will surely put you in advantage. When you end, you give that monster back to them. If it lasts that long the opponent has a turn to get rid of it before you take control of it permanently. Plant decks get a boost with this card and by using it with tribute or tuners, you won't have to worry about your opponent getting their monster back.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5
