It took you 13 years to release this, Konami?  True, it would have been really broken in the era of Delinquent Duo and Pot of Greed.  But still at least we have it.  Since Doppelganger was already a card name, they called it Mimicat instead (which makes a lot of sense).  
 
We can wax poetic about all the possible cards you could get out of this for a while, but this card does have it's share of problems.
 
1. Toons still aren't strong.  (They might win a locals though)
2. This card is situational in requiring 2 other specified cards.
3. The opponent's graveyard cards may work well for their archetype but not for Toons
4. This isn't a great card early game since the opponent's graveyard is weak.
 
Would've been way more groundbreaking of an effect 10 years ago, but, nonetheless, it's still welcome support.  All Toon decks should consider using a copy.
  
2.5/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
We'll get to the ban list next week, for now, we've got some Dragons of Legends 2 for you, starting with one of the best cards in the set: Minicat.
 
Toon decks are likely always going to have a “Toon World” and a “Toon” monster on the field, so those requirements aren't really anything. The ability to use essentially any card in your opponents grave can be summed up with one phrase: game-breaking. That can be said a lot, but this card literally is. Special Summon any monster (that can be Special Summoned) from your opponents graveyard, or select a spell/trap and set it on your side of the field. You can still activate the spell this turn, and regardless of them knowing which card to hit with a destruction effect you will likely still be able to activate it.
 
The only real downsides to the card is that they could MST your spell/trap set before you get to activate it, but that is still a 1-for-1 trade, or if you were in a top-decking situation and didn't have the requirements for this card. Minicat in the early game may not be a good thing either, but its a card you can hold onto without feeling rushed to play it. Wait for the right moment and use it to deal a serious, if not fatal blow. Its power is obvious, its requirements simple to meet. The only thing they could've done better was to make the monster you Special Summon to your side of the field be treated as a “Toon” monster, but that would've been broken if they didn't include the “it cannot attack the turn it is Summoned” clause.

We're looking at some cards from the Dragons of Legends 2 set. First up, Mimicat. A Pegasus special. I was so excited over the new Toon stuff. This card is just like Pegasus and his Toon deck, bonkers. It's a normal spell card and if you control Toon World and a Toon monster, you can activate this card. Target 1 card in your opponent's graveyard: If it is a monster card, special summon it to your side of the field, if it is a spell/trap card, set it to your spell/trap zone. You can only use 1 Mimicat per turn. It is a very nasty little card. It can net you anything your opponent has already used. Big ole monster your opponent has in the grave? Yours. Spell or Trap that you might need? Yours. And all you need to have is a Toon monster and Toon world on your side of the field. Easy peasy with Toon Kingdom and Toon Table of Contents. Hey, you know how the new F&L list is now to be changed whenever they need to change it? This card might wind up there sometime soon. It is a great card, a must for all the new Toon decks that will be popping up real soon.
