The Golden Apples, a Trap that I really would want
to like. In short, if you take Damage while
controlling no monsters, you get a Malus Token
(Fiend, Dark, Level 1, ? attack and defense) and the
attack and defense of said token equal that of the
monster that attacked you.
Realistically, this card probably will see little to
no play, ever. If you're in this situation
where you can actually use this card, it probably
isn't very much help to you anyway, and worse yet,
your opponent almost certainly has a way through or
The Golden Apples... don't eat them. This is the new
Gorz, the major differences being that you take no
damage, and you can still hold up defenses. If you
ask me, this is much better than Gorz in decks that
don't like to leave themselves open. If you like
your Field spell/use continuous cards/use Call of
the Haunted for Synchro Summoning, you won't want to
use Gorz. Other cases, it's a good idea to use him.
Because you can still have defenses up when you use
The Golden Apples, a huge amount of potential is
opened up over Gorz, even though you only get one
monster, not two. People are usually prepared for
Gorz, but the Malus token is much harder to
anticipate. You could remove the attacking monster
with Dimensional Prison or create a clone of it with
The Golden Apples--it's your choice, and because
it's a choice, this card has potential.

Fun Fact: This is called The Friggin' Apple.

Golden apples. This card isn’t one of my favorite
secrets for this set, but it does have its ups and
downs. Basically, the effect of this card says that
when you take battle damage with no monsters, you
may gain the damage back and special summon a token
with the gained life points as its attack and
defense. This card is not bad. The reason this card
will not see play though, is that it is over
shadowed by cards like mirror force and d-prison.
Since people will be packing cards like that, this
card will not really have a place. And
unfortunately, this card is situational; you have to
have no monsters on your side of the field. So
overall, the only main reason I would ever use this
card over d-prison is so I could say “how do you
like them apples,” when I beat them with it.
