The Winged Dragon of Ra works MUCH differently than you saw on the cartoon.  Also requiring three tributes to be Normal Summoned, doesn't gain attack and defense of the Monsters used for the Tribute Summon.  Like yesterday, this cards Normal Summon cannot be negated, although it can't be Special Summoned, unlike Obelisk.  Other cards and effects cannot be activated when Ra is Normal Summoned as well, like yesterday.  You can pay Lifepoints so that you have 100 left, for Ra to gain attack and defense equal to the amount of Lifepoints paid.  Also, by paying 1000 Lifepoints, you can destroy one Monster on the Field.  As said, I think Obelisk can actually be playable.  Ra, however, is far more difficult to play.

The Winged Dragon of Ra
DIVINE/Divine-Beast/Effect/Level 10/ ?/?Cannot be Special Summoned. Requires 3 Tributes to Normal Summon (cannot be Normal Set). This card's Normal Summon cannot be negated. When Normal Summoned, other cards and effects cannot be activated. When this card is Normal Summoned: You can pay Life Points so that you only have 100 left; this card gains ATK and DEF equal to the amount of Life Points paid. You can pay 1000 Life Points, then target 1 monster on the field; destroy that target.

Next we come to the second God Card, Mega Ultra Chicken! Despite what the card says this is not The Winged Dragon of Ra. In the anime and manga Ra was the most powerful of the God cards with 3 effects and tons of protection.

This card doesn’t have that, like all God Cards it requires 3 tributes and nothing can stop it’s summon or be activated in response to the summon. But it goes downhill from there. First it doesn’t have the same targeting protection Obelisk has so it is vulnerable to cards like Compulsory Evacuation Device. Then its two effects which you can only really use 1 of them at a time. First off you can pay all your life points until you only have 100 left and the amount you paid becomes Mega Ultra Chicken’s ATK and DEF, this is already very costly but annoying it is the only way for Ra to gain ATK points on his own.

The second effect is even worse; you pay 1000 Life points to destroy 1 monster on the field. First off if you used the ATK boost effect, you won’t have the life points to pay for this effect and if you didn’t well you have a level 10 monster that required 3 tributes and has 0 ATK and DEF which you still have to pay life points in order to destroy a monster.

Also it can’t be special summoned at all, which makes thing worse.
Overall, there is nerfing a card and then there is Card of Sanctity nerfing where the card has nothing in common with the anime version barring the name and art, “The Winged Dragon of Ra” clearly falls into the later category. Avoid.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5
