Black Potan ...   Oh, ok. I get it. A very weak monster. When out with a Tuner, this thing can't be destroyed by battle ... uhm ... so what? Most people would rather destroy the Tuner 1st, anyway. And then u get 800 LP when that Tuner is removed from the field ... Your best scenario would be Potan and something like Infernity Beetle. Trigger its effect, send it to the grave, and gain 800 LP, in addition to 2 more Infernity Beetles. If u've got 2 other things on the field to synchro into, then u get 2 more batches of 800 LP. So total? - 2400 LP.

Nice. But is it worth the effort? - absolutely not. For a second I thought u got the bonus when a Synchro left the field. Then pairing this with say, Stardust, might be handy. But nope. Black Potan needs Tuners ... but none need him.

So someone in the card design department either really likes or really hates potatoes.  Today we review Yami Mr. Potato Head Black Potan, already remarkable for not having its name censored.  Oddly enough, it’s a Fiend and not a Plant.  It has a counterpart known as White Potan.  Black Potan has abysmal stats (Level 1/Dark/Fiend/Effect/200/100) but it can’t be destroyed by battle if you have a face-up Tuner in play.  Also, if a Tuner you control is removed from the field, you gain 800 LP.  Ironically White Potan (a Light/Fairy) has a similar effect but inflicts burn.  Either way… I am none too thrilled with the card.  If you have a Tuner, you probably want to use it for a Synchro Summon.  Even if you did want too… the instant the Tuner dies, this is sure to follow.

Black Potan
 
Since Tuners generally have low stats (and are intended to be tuned off the field), I don't really understand the point of Black Potan. I think this card would have been far better if the effect prevented being targeted or destroyed by any effect, period. As it stands, the card is unplayable garbage.

Today's card is Black Potan, which I'm sure must be a mistake because this is from ABPF... Anyway, there isn't much to say about this card because it's just another trash common nobody is going to use. If you have a face-up Tuner, it can't be destroyed in battle. When a Tuner is removed from the field, you gain 800 Life Points. Why do you have a Tuner you're not using, why aren't you using Marshmallon (the superior marshmallow card), and why are you so desperate for 800 Life Points?

Art: Chocolate.
Fun Fact: Someone needs to make that awesome hat out of this. I forget who has it...
Tomorrow: You can buy Revival Herbs in the Goldenrod underground.
