Merry Christmas everybody! Now let’s celebrate this
card that the Japanese appreciated much more than
the rest of the world did. For a brief period of
time, Santa Claws saw play in the OCG as a side deck
possibility in lieu of better options (like the
Kaiju monsters TCG had for much longer). Getting rid
of Cyber Dragon Infinity, Chaos Max or ABC was worth
allowing the potential draw and net minus 2 for a
lot of players. But now Japan has the Kaijus… so
there’s no more reason for this card to ever see the
light of day again. Though, if I suspect correctly,
I have a feeling the card of the day staff might see
this once again someday… right around Christmas
Merry Christmas. So, I guess this
card is a more versatile
version of Lava Golem. It doesn't
clog up your summoning, it doesn't give the
opponent a strong beater (though 2500 DEF is high)
and it doesn't require the
opponent have two monsters.
On the other
hand, this card doesn't
get rid of two
monsters for one card,
doesn'tinflictburn damage, and instead
of hurting the
opponentfor holding onto
gives the opponent a
+1 each turn (on top
of you losing a card, the
opponentlosing a card
and the opponent gaining
a card). You would have to waste removal to
stop the opponent from drawing. However you
look atit, it's
a -1 or -2.
People only mildly thought
card when Apoqliphorttowers
was a large threat.
Butwith thatgone, there's no
reason to use this

Hello Pojo Fans,
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! The
spirit is in high effect on pojo with a review of a
card we selected purely for the season: Santa Claws.
Get rid of one of your opponents monsters while
giving them a wall of sorts. If you can get over the
2400 DEF this turn then giving them this monster
benefited them zero. On top of that you will be
getting a free draw at the end of your turn as long
as the summon goes through. Even if you can't get
past Santa, its weak ATK doesn't help the opponent
much. Make sure they don't do any synchroing or you
could be in trouble as Mr. Claws is a Level 6.
Get rid of a monster of your opponents, get a free
draw at the end of the turn, and potentially destroy
Santa Claws to take away the monster you gave them.
With the Kaiju conspiracy we might have forgotten
about demi clause over here. Santa Claws is a Level
6 Light Fiend-type monster with 1200 Atk and 2500
Def. The main reason to use this over Kaiju's is
with Creature Swap. This monster and Kaiju's require
one Tribute of an opponent's monster to Special
Summon to their side. Santa Claws has to stay in Def
mode, but it gives the opponent a Draw during the
End Phase. A gift. Lose a monster here's a
card. With Creature Swap or something like Remove
Brainwashing, Santa Claws will return to your side
and give you a Draw during the End Phase. Yugi Wiki
told me something I didn't know. The stats are
awesome because 1200 Atk and 2500 Def can be
shortened to 12/25. This year 12/25 is on a Sunday,
so enjoy the holiday time off.
Score: 5/5 All hail Santan...
Art: 4/5 Puns and references all over the card
Santa Claws, what a delicious pun. So our
Christmas themed friend has 1200 attack and 2500
defense (12-25 the date of Christmas, still
delicious) level 6, and a Light attributed Fiend.
Not much going on with this card, it's pretty
simple. It has a unique ability to Special
Summon to the opponent's Field (from your Hand) in
defense position, by Tributing one of their
Monsters. Then, you get to Draw a card during
your End Phase. So, that's a breakeven.
You lose a card from your Hand, but Draw...your
opponent loses a Monster and gets this.
Everybody breaks even. There are better and
easier ways to get a card without giving your
opponent a Monster, but ridding an opponent of
something fierce or powerful and giving them this,
isn't so bad.
Rating: 2.75/5 Art, and the season
factor into this heavily (realistically probably a
Art: 5/5 Very creepy, but still fun
