Super Rush Recklessly
ends out week on a higher note than
Scrap Rage would have, but short
of the heights seen by the first
three cards this week.
It is a card that feels
misnamed: it has little in common

doesn't sound as cool.
The only ruling I see for this one
is an important one: when the effect
resolves, both targets must be
The card is worded so that
you select your Beast-Type monster
and your opponent’s monster at
activation, and both would be
considered “targeted” effects.
Then when the effect
resolves, you have to destroy your
monster and then return an
opponent’s monster to the deck.
I suppose this is nice: if
something happens to the intended
bounce target I guess you’re spared
destroying your own monster.
You might even luck out and
be able to safely pop a
Spirit Reaper with this.
Unfortunately it opens up a
window for the opponent to counter
it; namely if an opponent can get
rid of a monster his- or herself, no
bounce occurs and you’re still out a
The destruction aspect was probably
meant as a bonus and not a drawback.
Indeed, multiple Beast
supported cards/decks can turn it
into a mild bonus.
Defender of the Forest is
perhaps the most obvious example:
pop your own filler monster to bring
out this bad boy while bouncing
something useful of your opponent’s.
While Sheep Tokens won’t

for this card.
Keep in mind this is more an
incidental combo: I’d rather use the

enjoy the bounce and set up for the

another one in your S/T Zone.
Ojama decks can use this to
score some bounce and “tweak” their
field if someone has outlived their
usefulness (a real concern given
their “swarm and lock” tactics).

wonder if someone thought this would

I am still selling my former
collectables on eBay. I’ve had
a lot of hobbies over the years, so
at various times I’ll have comic
books, manga, action figures, and
video games on the auction block.
You can take a look at what’s up for
here. Just a reminder,
Pojo is in no way responsible for
any transactions and was merely kind
enough to let me mention the
auctions here. ;)
