If this card battles a monster, your opponent draws 1 card at the end of the Damage Step.

Another very good card to make your opponent hurt a bit. Chainsaw Insect has its risks but a direct attack from a 2400 monster is nothing to scoff at. And they dont get the draw to boot. And with skill drain, it runs rampant, trucking monsters for -1 rather than zeroing out the advantage. Kudos to you, Chainsaw Insect, you and your random massacres.

Advanced Format 3.5/5

Runs better in an insect- if there are any serious ones. But anyway,this is a card that sorta reminds me of Goblin, without the Defffence effect, but a drawing effect, which you oculd easily get aorund, if attack directly.

3.5/5 Can work well if played right.

This card is such a *****. For some odd reason, I always seems to get direct attacked by twin Chainsaw Insect whenever I play against my friend who runs a beatdown deck.

In non-skill drain decks, this card shines even more. Mostly for it's scare/attarctive factor.

This card works well with approprite, or that card that inflicts damage when your opponet draws (forgot name)

Excellent for decking out my opponent in my insect deck along with 3 needle worms

Isn't there a card that says that your draw when your opponent draws outside of his or her draw step, Appropriate, and another card that makes your opponent draw two whenever he smacks him?(Bistro Butcher). I sense card advantage, and a possible theme to build around, as a deck built as setting a a pseudo howling mine and then overwhelming your opponent with a deck around manipulating card advantage. A lot of other cards that make your opponent draw while giving you an excellent effect also come to mind, making it a pretty well rounded deck. Draw three a turn when your deck can abuse the card advantage is always sweet, even if your opponent can do it too. Your opponent happens to lose a creature most of the time too. How convenient. :P. You may even be able to stack Appropriates. In the right deck, most of the time it's ADVANTAGEOUS to attack a creature as well as directly.

Fun. :D

4.5/5 in the right context, 3/5 as a quick beater in others.

His effcet could cause some problem but a four star monster with 2400 atk could be a good thing if used right.
