Super Hippo Carnival
- #TDIL-EN053

Special Summon 1 "Performapal Hip Hippo" from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard, then you can Special Summon as many "Hippo Tokens" (Beast-Type/EARTH/Level 1/ATK 0/DEF 0) as possible, but they cannot be Tributed, and monsters your opponent controls cannot target monsters for attacks for the rest of this turn, except "Hippo Tokens". You cannot Special Summon monsters from the Extra Deck while a "Hippo Token" is in a Monster Zone.

Super Hippo Carnival 

Remember Ben-Kei decks? Well they got an upgrade with this card. Now people who read my reviews know I’m super anti-OTK, but I acknowledge this spell card’s power. With the ability to summon five beast type monsters instantly comes the inevitable deck that abuses equip cards and Wild Nature’s Release for a quick kill that boosts one of the monsters to upwards of 30,000 ATK. Since the tokens and Hippo aren’t restricted from attacking like Scapegoat tokens, this quickplay spell can do what the little goaties never could, which was set up easy OTK strikes. 

Outside of the aforementioned OTK deck, Super Hippo Carnival is too restrictive for normal play. Without the ability to use the tokens in any way except as shields, they will only hinder your own plays. This card should never be used outside its own deck. 

Advanced: 1.5/5
Future Potential: 1/5

First of all Performapal Hip Hippo is a Level 3 Earth Beast-type monster with 800 Atk and 800 Def. Super Hippo Carnival is QuickPlay Spell Card that Special Summons Performapal Hip Hippo from the hand, deck, or grave. Hip Hippo won't get its effect to allow an Extra Level 7 or higher Tribute Summon. However, Super Hippo Carnival is a very easy way to get a quick monster to the field for free and with no drawbacks. Emergency Teleport is more versatile, but this could be interesting side tech. 
 
There is more to Super Hippo Carnival. After Performapal Hip Hippo is Special Summoned, it can also Special Summon as many tokens as possible to the field. Those tokens can't be tributed and can't be material for any Extra Deck Summons. They completely lock out Extra Deck Summons while they are in a Monster Card Zone. Their only redeeming quality is they are the only monsters that can be targeted for an attack. Super Hippo Carnival scores well because it can be a combo extender with just Performapal Hip Hippo or an excellent defense card with the tokens. 
 
Score: 4/5 Happy Friday!
Art: 2/5 weird and trippy

Super Hippo Carnival...it's Friday, why not end the week with a carnival?  So this is a Quickplay Magic card, which is the best type of Magic card.  You're able to Special Summon a Performapal Hip Hippo from your Hand, Deck, or Graveyard, and then as many Hippo Tokens as possible.  They have 0 attack and defense, but you can Summon them in attack or defense position.  I'm assuming defense, and this is supposed to be used as a defensive maneuver being a Quickplay.  Said tokens cannot be tributed, and your opponent can only attack your hippo tokens for the rest of the current turn.  You can't Special Summon Monsters from your Extra Deck while you control a Hippo Token either.  That seems unnecessary.  I mean sure, this card could be useful in a pinch to protect other cards I guess or something, but since you can't Tribute the Tokens, yet you could use them for Synchro, why not just say you can't, since the Monster can't come from the Extra Deck.  There's still potential I suppose for a Summon from the Graveyard.  I hate when the worst card of the week is on Friday.  But I digress
