Today's COTD is....

Inaba White rabbit (http://www.yugioh-cards.net/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/db2/DB2-EN176.jpg)

[BEAST / SPIRIT / Earth]
This card cannot be Special Summoned. This card returns to the owner's hand during the End Phase of the turn that this card is Normal Summoned, Flip Summoned or flipped face-up. This monster attacks your opponeent's Life Points directly.
ATK/ 700 DEF/ 500

To kick off Spirit week, I'll start with Inaba White Rabbit. This card used to see a whole lot of play back when LOD came out, but still has a slot for Spirit decks even today. It's stats aren't that impressive, what with 700 ATK, but he hit's directly everytime, and can even be combo'ed with Robin' Goblin or Robin' Zombie.

Most recently, a teammate of mine (David Javery) playtested this bunny in a micro-burn deck at SJC Arlington. Despite the fact that it returns to your hand at every end phase, it's protected from your opponents 1-for-1 removals and can do the same thing next turn. Now, have a Level-Limit Area-B on the field, along with Cyber Tutu and possible a Lava Golem, dropping this thing will ensure you'll make a faster win before your opponent can counter against your stall-threats. Basically, 1400 damage can be done to your opponent quick time.

In Spirit decks, it's good to have cards lkike Threatening Roar or Waboku out to protect your Inaba (and other monsters) from getting hurt. 700 ATK may seem small, but when you have cards like Asura Priest, Great Long Nose, and Susa Soldier out along with the Rabbit dealing damage every turn, it add's up quick.

I give Inaba White Rabbit a 2.5/5. I's not the best Spirit Monster in the world, but in Micro Burn and Spirit decks, this card can shine with the correct protection.

Very Cool

I'll give this a 3/5 for now in a dedicated deck. I think it has potential, and I definetly think that it could t8 if you made a deck that REALLY protected it.

Reaper might have a word with this card though.

This card is sex, but I'm biased because, after all, my name is "the_rabbit". I built a deck around Inaba White Rabbit not too long ago, and I still have it in my YVD folder..I'm sure Kero has probably perused the decklist on Pojo, but I did post it a while ago..

Anyway, it revolves around Inaba/Robbin Goblin, with the usual tricks Spirits can pull off, I.E. Swap/Box. With a little burn/stall, it's good stuff.

Random ADV tech: 1/5
It's own ADV deck: 5/5
ADV Spirit Deck: 2/5

This guy is cool... come in, do some damage, and at the end of your turn, it comes back.

Wow I'm on this end of the COTD for the first time in awhile.

Im suprised that you didnt mention this card's synergy, or any spirit for that matter, with Creature Swap. I like this little sukka. Looks like Max. Come on guys, Sam and Max, think back. Maybe before some of our time, whatever.


Anyway this little bit is my favorite of the "I walk by your monsters and slap you" guys. I've seen it played in a ratbox with Gaia Power. Yes random, but 1200 for free? Nice.

Advanced format: 3.5/5

2/5 not a big fan personally. Creature swapping it is EVIL!!

Also I think there is a new Sam and Max coming out. Ya whippersnappers.

so many cards are like that nower days

Not really...Inaba White rabbit is one of the most versatile of the bunch. it bounces back, and hits with 700 damage each turn, if you decide to summon it and attack with it. Other cards like Jinzo #7 and Cyber Tutu need to stay alive on the field or meet requirements.
