Megamorph, now completely Unrestricted, is a really complicated card, for something that has such a not so complicated effect.  If you have fewer Lifepoints than your opponent, the (original) attack of a Monster equipped with Megamorph is doubled.  (Similarly, if your Lifepoints are higher, the attack of said Monster is halved.)  Anyway, Megamorph is used as a One Turn/First Turn Kill card about 99.9% of the time.  At three, it's actually almost scary.  Three Megamorph on a Stardust (or other powerful Monster) when your opponent should be done has the ability to just lucksack and destroy a Format.  But for whatever reason, outside of OTK/FTK, I don't see people actually being smart or creative enough to use it like that.

Ratings:

2/5 both Formats, on it's own
4/5 for potential to win games on luck, and destroy a Format
3/5 average
Art:  3/5  meh

Megamorph

Yep, Megamorph has come off the list and is back at 3. But does anybody care? Not really. MST is back at 3, which means anything that isn't a normal or quick-play spell (or chainable trap like Jar of Greed, Threatening Roar or Compulsory Evacuation Device) can be disarmed in an instant, including equip spells like Megamorph.

There's an old trick to using this card. If you're losing, give it to your monster to double its points. If you're winning, equip it to an opponent's monster (you can give equip cards to any monster on the field) to halve its ATK. These days, it doesn't quite matter, because all top decks will be able to replace that one monster or destroy your one monster. It's a relic of an age gone by.

2/5
Art: I always liked it.
Fun Fact: United We Stand was once Forbidden.
Tomorrow: It's at 3 and it shouldn't be.

Megamorph
 
The recently unlimited equip spell Megamorph is an interesting card these days. Its power back in the day was unmatched. Summoning Cyber Stein, paying 500 life to special summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, then equipping Megamorph for a 9000 attack monster was awesome. These days, Megamorph has clearly lost power. It didn’t really do anything at 2 so I understand Konami’s decision to unlimit it and I don’t think anything will chance now. There are some cool combos that you could do with Demise or even Judgment Dragon, but equip spells are very slow. With Mystical Space Typhoon at 3, there just isn’t any room for Megamorph unless you’re playing a deck designed around it.

Traditional: 3/5 (Because of Cyber Stein)
Advanced: 2/5

Megamorph

This card was recently confirmed to have been Unlimited for the September '11  format. To be quite honest, I don't know why this card was Semi-Limited in the first place. The attack boost is nice, but you have to be technically losing in order to use this. Or you can slap it on your opponent's monster when you have high Life Points to cut their monster's attack. There are some neat tricks you can use with this card that can help with some OTK decks, but overall, there isn't a lot of room in decks now for this card to see any serious play.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 3/5
Alchemist Megamorph
 
Megamorphhas been limited for quite some time. Finally, after the Banlist generators have realized that it has done nothing regardless of the changes to the list, they semi-limited it for safe measures. Now, next format, we shall see it at three. Will it do anything? Whose to say. Hasn't been doing much, lately. 
 
Simply put, this Equip Spell Card's effect either doubles or halves the ATK of the equipped monster you placed it on, depending on your Life Points; if it is higher than your opponent's Life Points it is halved and vice versa. 
 
This card saw most of it's play during Cyber Stein OTK or Demise OTK format, respectively. Now-a-days, it's simply outdated, and hardly any Equip Spell Cards are being used, unless they generate a ton of advantage (looking at you, Wonder Wand).

Traditional: 3/5 (Cyber Stein)

-Yup, it sucks....

Megamorph continues our review of cards from the latest F/L list. It is perhaps one of the best generic equip spell cards in the game. While your life points are lower than your opponent’s your equipped monster’s attack is doubled. The balance to this is that while yours are higher the attack is halved. What most people think when they hear megamorph is Demise OTK, which is what got this card on the list in the first place. At three this also helps those who run morphtronics and Power Tool Dragon. Equip spells aren’t that great anymore though.

Traditional: 2
