Raigeki Bottle, a fun little Trap, that has the odd ability of placing a Thunder Counter on it each time a Monster you control declares an attack.  By sending this Trap to the Graveyard when it has four or more Thunder Counters, you destroy all Monsters your opponent controls.  So, either you're in command of the Duel, and easily adding Counters to this card, and likely aren't going to need it...or you're being pummeled and can't get the necessary counters.  OH, and the triple Mystical Space Typhoon, among other things.  OH, and the fact we have quicker and better cards available.  It just isn't worth using.

Ratings:

1/5 all
Art:  4/5

Raigeki Bottle

Somebody took Raigeki and put it in a bottle, and they ended up with Raigeki Bottle. This trap gives you Raigeki's effect, but only after you've made four attacks. As is to be expected for a remake of one of game's most powerful cards, there are so many crippling drawbacks that nobody in their right mind would ever consider running this:

-It's a trap. That means you can't activate it right away, and you're going to miss a turn of attacks.
-You have to attack four times. If you've attacked four times, you're definitely not losing, and your opponent definitely has a small field.
-Raigeki Bottle can't be used.
-Opponents can easily destroy it with Mystical Space Typhoon.

It can be tempting to run a card with such a powerful effect, but you have to look at the drawbacks--especially the drawbacks that aren't listed on the card.

1/5
Art: Reminds me of the hot sauce bottles from the GX dub.
Fun Fact: We're not drinking wine! We're drinking hot sauce!
Tomorrow: It's painful to review.

Raigeki Bottle, simple and sweet, do not play it. Continuous traps will not stay on the field without protection and it requires you declare 4 attacks. This card will not last 4 turns and if you have 4 attacks you can make in a turn you are probably winning anyway. Of course there are the obvious 2 attacks in turns but again, Heavy Storm and 3 MST. This card should have been common.
