Bird of Roses:

     Could they have put any more restrictions on how this guy has to die to get his effect?  It seems a tad ridiculous, but with his effect, I suppose I understand.  Being able to pull out 2 tuners from your deck is a very exploitable effect (Diva, Cat, etc...) as we've seen over the last few formats.  Obviously, the biggest draw back for this guy is that your opponent is going to read the card, and then most likely, not attack him whilst in face-up attack position (book of moon or enemy controller anyone?) or just use some sort or removal on him.  So this card can either make your opponent squirm for a turn, or force their hand and use that smashing or brain control they've been holding onto.  Should they actually attack it, then you get to bring out a couple Cherry Inmatos or Nettles.  It's too bad we don't have Naturia Cosmobeet yet as it's name is the greatest name of a Yugioh card ever, and could also be summoned from the effect of Bird.  But Cherry Inmato works nicely, as it allows you to set up even more plays should your opponent destroy those Inmatos as well, because they too can special summon Inmato monsters from the deck.  If anything, this card gives plants another 1800 atk beater to use that actually has an effect that makes it worth considering.

Traditional:  2.0
Advanced:   3.0  (would have been higher without stupid destruction requirements)

-SF- Bird of Roses: Well, after an accidentally long  hiatus,

I'm back to CoTD. Today we have an interesting card, Bird of Roses. The idea behind it is a Mystic Tomato-style monster for plants that gives you two cards rather than one. A really neat, potentially even overpowered idea. However, some little restrictions kill it. It can't attack into the monster AND it has to be in face-up attack, basically making it the most easily readable card ever. Unfortunately, if your opponent knows even the slightest bit of Yugioh, they'll remove it some other way than attacking it, or just kill the tuners before they do anything. Sadly, this is one of the most useless recent monsters to exist.

Advanced: 1/5
Traditional: 1/5

Today's awesome card is Bird of Roses, which confuses me because I thought this would become a really popular and powerful card. It has some very sturdy stats, with 1800 ATK, and unfortunately, 1500 DEF you'll never use. It has to be in attack mode when it's killed... By an attacking monster... And sent to the graveyard. Then, it'll blossom into 2 Plant Tuners from your deck! This means an instant +1 as well as tuning material, deck thinning, and swarming.

This can summon Cherry Inmato, Copy Plant, Nettles and Spore, which are a few monsters you might want on your field. Spore fires off its crazy awesomeness and cuteness, and Cherry Inmato will split into further Inmatos. This means your Rose Bird turns into 2 Cherries when killed, and when each of those get killed, you'll get 1 or 2 more Inmatos. Crazy? Crazy. Then those Inmatos can help give you two draws and clear off the field for your next plant swarm.

I would love to see a deck built around Inmatos and Rose Bird. Hint hint.

4.3/5
Art: Freaky, right? Stare closely and be afraid. Be very afraid.
Fun Fact: Yes, .3.
Tomorrow: Furries.
