Maxx "C" opens the week, and this thing is so rare because...? Level 2, Ea rth attributed, Insect monster, with 500 attack and 200 defense. There isn't a whole lot to do with this card, honestly. You get to Draw one card ea ch time your opponent Special Summons a monster.

You can only activate this cards effect by sending it to the Graveyard from your Hand, so while you can do it during either players' turn, obviously they know it's coming...realistically speaking it probably isn't enough to keep your opponent from performing a Special Summon.

Ratings:

1.5/5 all
3.5/5 Art

Hopefully, you all had a good time at the STOR Sneak. We're starting off the week with a highly sought-after card, Maxx C. It's not the shiny, black kind. Instead, it's the card that turns into a LOT of draws. For instance, chain it to the opponent's summon of Quickdraw Synchron to draw 2 free cards, one when the Fluffies come, and another for the summon of Drill Warrior.

Gate of the Six activated? Looks like you're drawing anywhere from 3 - 5+ cards. It's crazy. However, you might not want to main this card. Against other popular decks, such as Gravekeepers, Watts or Karakuri, there won't be enough special summons to go around and steal from.

Remember that Maxx C doesn't give you a draw for that first summon. You need to look at that first summon, and try to predict what will happen next. You'll either draw a few cards, or really mess with your opponent's plans. Like Effect Veiler, D.D. Crow and Skull Meister, you can toss this card at the opponent at any time. Use all of that to your advantage somehow.

4/5
Art: I wonder what's in the "C" series's fridge.
Fun Fact: The 13th Pokemon movie was on last night.
Tomorrow: People like generic quick-play spells like Book of Moon.

Today's review is gross. Someone should have brought some Eradicating Aerosol.

Maxx "C" is a somewhat weird card, but it's definitely got potential to be good. The stats are terrible, and the typing is terrible, but you're not really using Maxx "C" as a monster card, per say. By pitching him from your hand, you will be able to draw a card each time your opponent Special Summons that turn. You can only play one Maxx "C" per turn, so no stacking them.

This an especially cool effect when chained to something. For example, your opponent Normal Summons XX-Saber Boggart Knight and activates the effect. You chain Maxx "C". You get to draw a card, instantly replacing the Maxx "C" you lost, so you're already doing better than Upstart Goblin. But the best part is, your opponent had wanted to bring down Pashuul to Special Summon Faultroll, then summon Hyunlei. Your opponent can choose to continue with his play, of course, and let you draw five or more additional cards this turn... or they can simply end the turn, to get out from Maxx "C"'s effect.

This same type of trick works splendidly versus plant decks, Quickdraw, Infernity, Blackwings, and pretty much any deck that can Special Summon multiple times per turn.

If your opponent lets you draw a ton, then great. If they hold off on making their good plays, then that's great too. It's a win-win scenario!

Maxx "C"'s main flaws are that it's a purely reactionary card. You can't really be forceful with it, you'll just have to wait for the right moment. And of course, it won't actually stop those Special Summons. If your opponent is going to OTK you, Maxx "C" won't help much (Unless all those draws get you Tragoedia or Gorz!). Aside from that, it's terrible stats aren't helping much, although it is prime fodder to revive with Debris Dragon to summon Iron Chain Dragon.

Traditional: 3/5 I can see this being side decked. If you're playing any Exodia OTKs, this could potentially help you win on your opponent's turn, depending what your opponent is playing.
Advanced: 4/5 Since it's so easy to use as a makeshift Upstart Goblin at worst, Maxx "C" is definitely a good piece of splashable tech.
Art: Shiny Black "C" had thousands of babies. All named Maxx.
