U.A. Playmaker is one of the few U.A. Monsters with a strong attack.  2600 is a bit low for a Level 8, as is the 2000 defense.  His effect does actually help the Deck a great deal.  Now, don't mistake that for this card being good.  Helpful doesn't mean good.  When another U.A. you control attacks, you can have this card give up 800 of his own attack, and then the Monster attacking gains 800 attack.  I'm not generally a fan of effects like this BUT with all the bouncing around these guys can do, after you use his effect once (or twice what have you) just cycle him back to the Hand and bring out a new U.A.  As said, this guy helps, but I feel you don't need him in the Deck.  Not a bad card though.

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Playmaker isn't as much of a playmaker as other “U.A.” monsters, but it can be a finishing card. Much like U.A. Stadium, Playmaker's ATK boost to other monsters is permanent, so if you want to keep a “U.A.” monster on the field for long, this card is a good helper. Multiple times you can drain this cards ATK per turn (3 at the minimum) for your “U.A.” monsters, then pop Playmaker back to use next turn.
 
It's good, but if it could use its effect during either turn would make it a better card. Its strong ATK is useful (strongest of all “U.A.” monsters) but the point of Playmaker is to drop its ATK several times a turn, pop it back, then repeat next turn. Attack with Playmaker first, then use his effect on other “U.A.” monsters.
