Xing Zhen Hu, one of the stranger Traps out there.  It's going to be short and sweet today folks.  This is the age old philosophy that it's almost always certainly better to destroy, than to lock, in this instance.  This card, is a Continuous Trap that lets you select two Magic and Trap cards on the Field (face-down obviously) and not allow the user or users to activate them.  Yea, it can actually be a bit of a combo card, but that's even a bit of a stretch.  It's junk almost 99% of the time.

1.5/5 all

Xing Zhen Hu
 
Alright I won't lie and say I spelled this right when I went looking for more information on the card. Zing Zhen Hu; not Xing Zen Who, is an older continuous trap card from Rise of Destiny that has been reprinted/release/what have you in Gold Series 4; and other sets also but whatever. Anyhow, Xing Zhen Hu is a real overlooked "what just happened" sort of card. It has no real good deck for it to work with; although combos with Anti Spell Fragrance as fairly effective, and can be chained to make it a bit useless. It would be best to activate this little item on your opponents End Phase after they set two. Now read that last statement again and ask yourself if this card is "situational". The answer would be yes, so stick with the usual suspects for your trap lineup unless you feel like being silly.

The best description for Xing Zhen Hu is a watered down Royal Decree. In order to activate you must select 2 set spell or trap cards. They do not have to be your opponents but I doubt you would want to hit your own. Those cards cannot be activated. This card is not quite that useful as you can chain your own Royal Decree or an MST or Dust Tornado to destroy it. If not there are a host of cards to draw to get rid of it. What is funny is I actually ran into this card at my locals, it was a pleasant surprise.

Here we have our second card of the week from gold series four. A common called xing zhen hu, which for some reason I imagine a Scottish guy saying. Its a continuous trap that allows you to make sure your opponent doesn't activate 2 of their facedowns. They can still chain them. This thing sucks more than my vacuum cleaner, folks. Konami should really ask the players next time.

Traditional:1/5
Advanced:1/5
