Cactus Bouncer, another really interesting card,
is a Level 4, Earth attributed, Plant monster with
1800 attack, which is good, and a paltry 300
defense. What can this cactus do? First off, it
can't be Special Summoned, which is a boon to most
cards. However, when another Plant monster on the
Field exists face-up on the Field, neither player
can Special Summon monsters.
It's obviously a great asset for Plant Decks, but
you have to make sure you aren't relying (or at
least heavily relying) on Special Summoning
yourself, as neither player is allowed to.
Sorry for not chiming in for reviews for a while!
I just got my computer fixed so now I am back in
business.Today's card is Cactus Bouncer, an 1800 ATK
and 300 DEF EARTH Plant with 4 stars. That is
actually a solid set of stats and plants do need
some more muscle as they are mostly combo cards
The effect is that it cannot be Special Summoned
and while you control another Plant monster, neither
player can Special Summon. The first effect pretty
much guarantees that the card will not see play. The
Plant deck is all about Special Summons so it is
really hard to fit in a card that specifically
cannot be Special Summoned. The second effect also
hurts your own deck as well, which is bad since most
of what you do in this deck is Special Summon.
There is a bit of a cool idea though, if Cactus
Bouncer is on the field and you have Lonefire
Blossom, you can Tribute the Lonefire as a cost and
be able to Special Summon with it. Though neat
tricks are not going to keep this card in
It is a cool tech card in a Plant deck that could
be very good, but also hold you back a lot. Maybe in
a deck based on Mark of the Rose and not on
Gigaplant could use it...
Cactus Bouncer ...
This card is good ... but JUST short of being
great. 4 stars. Solid & meaty 1800 ATK. Earth type -
fairly decent. Plant - fairly decent as well. And a
very good effect ... Negating the ability to special
summon ... This cripples most decks NOT Blackwing
related. Yes, there are plenty of ways around this,
but a card like this, present at the right time,
could lock the game in your favor. However ... its
those extra words that take AWAY from Cactus
bouncer. "other than this card" .... yeah, that
sucks. He needs ANOTHER plant on the field with him
in order for his effect to kick in. And he himself
cannot be special summoned. So as much butt as he'd
kick with Gigavise, it'll take a bit of work to get
him in working properly.
Overall, I like him. Someone will incorporate him
into something pretty annoying for opponents ...
N o V a
Cactus Bouncer. This card I love. Its main flaw
is it cannot be special summoned. I already have
ideas with this, since I was the first on Pojo's
forums more than likely with Absolute Powerforce
cards, and this is one of the cards I have. While
there is another Plant monster on the field, neither
player can special summon monsters. Black Garden
came to mind. When a token comes out while Cactus
Bouncer is on the field, it prevents both players
from special summoning. So the opponent has to
destroy the token or Cactus Bouncer to allow special
summons. Cactus Bouncer has a solid 1800 attack,
poor defense but its not like you will defend with
this, making Book of Moon a threat against Cactus
Fighter. Regardless, Cactus Bouncer can be used in
many ways, personally I'd love to see what people
come up with, with this card.
Plants just keep getting the support! Awesome!
This card seems like it was made for Black Garden.
Activate Garden and then summon Bouncer. When you
summon him, your opponent will get a plant token,
and that will be the other plant on the field you
needed to use the effect of Bouncer. This also means
that when your opponent summons, your field will not
be cluttered with plant tokens. This is just one of
the cool things you can do with him. But, I don't
think he is potent enough to really be useful
outside of casual play.
