    Default YGO COTD - 9/30/2006: Icarus Attack



    Text:
    By Tributing 1 Winged Beast-Type monster on your side of the field, destroy 2 cards on the field.

    *** *** ***

    The final COTD of Trap Week is Icraus Attack. This card is more specialized than any other trap card I've covered, and I picked this one in particular because its a particularly effective one. You trade this card and one bird from your field, and the opponent loses 2 cards. Unless you target a card in the backfield that will be chained for some immediate advantage, you break even on advantage. Also, this card can slow the advance of Aggro decks, making the all too common CyDra >>> *monster* move basically moot. They waste their summon and burn 2 cards from their hand, so in essence you gain more ground than just taking out 2 threats.

    Advanced Format 3/5 (in bird decks. If you run this outside of a bird deck I'll have someone pray for you.)

    Also it's chainable. So if they Mobius, MST, etc to kill it then... YAY!!

    It doesn't say up to. Does that mean you have to destroy 2? That could be a hindrance. I would hate having to hit my own cards. Shouldn't be a problem though.

    3.5/5 in bird decks.

    .000000001/5 in other. (there are opponents with DNA surgery right? XD)

    It's a great card. Did they ever fix the "up to 2" and "two cards" part of the text?

    I give it 4/5 in winged beast decks. It's a very realible card.

    What do you mean fix? You have to kill 2 cards, its not optional.

    And Icarus Attack cant target itself so thats out.
