    Default YGO COTD - 10/1/2006: Shrink



    Text
    Select 1 face-up monster on the field. The original ATK of that monster is halved until the end of this turn

    *** *** ***

    Another week, another month, another COTD. Shrink is the first COTD of the week, and this ridiculously rare card is rumored to be in the upcoming champion packs. A quickplay magic card like this one is powerful in its own accord, making the almighty Blue Eyes White Dragon lose out in its battle to Ryu Kishin Powered. Ok terrible example but thats the power of this card. Spring it in the battle phase and its all over for somebody. Best used in tandem with monsters like Don Zaloog and Airknight Parshath

    Advanced Format: 4/5

    Dude, you are thinking way too small.

    I play Majestic Mech - Goryu. I Shrink it. Then I play Inferno Reckless Summon. I win.

    4/5
    Props to MysticFlames for these!

    That would be nice if it worked. To reckless summon something it has to start with 1500 or less. In other words, your quickplay spell is Celestial Transformation, and not Shrink.

    If you use shrink on your turn and you dont flip a Crush Card, you did it wrong.

    Shrink for the win.

    Hope this card makes it in the Championships pack (as a rare). It'll lessen the overall amount of people who can get this cookie-cutter card, but at least allow the masses a chance at getting the card.

    I give it 5/5. It's versatility is top-notch.

    Yeah, this card pretty much owns. Its an SJC card, and those are generally pretty awesome. Its the second best one, Cyber Stein is first. I have been personally waiting for a mass release of this thing since I saw it on the show.

    I know that that isn't really a review, but this thing pwns hard enough that it doesn't need one.

    4.5/5

    I would never use that one though. Too valuable. Imagine shuffling and bending it. 0_o

    You don't use cases? I pity the fool who would put this baby in a duel disk. I'm surprised that there isn't a price to pay for it. Is it going to be limited?

    Cases can bend the cards as well, if you riffle them as might be required. Cases or not, cards bend, especially uber-special hyper-quasi-holofoil ones.

    And I suppose I should rate it because I posted. :/

    4/5- I'm out of the loop, but I can see how overt it is that this card changes the tide of games; Everything but and uber-pimped Great-Maju-Garzett gets shot down to kill range with this card, hands down. It's power might not warrant running three copies, but in a 40 card deck, one of these in an emergency situation is enough, and two if your deck is slow enough to take that long to set up. I personally can't see three copies being run, but it's possible. This becoming easily available is likely quite a punch to the metagame; this is a card you have to consider everytime you see them drop a face-down and everytime you do virtually anything. Adds quite a bit a depth to the game when you have to keep watching out for something with as much potential and impact as this. A trick in the sleeve that effortlessly and effectively MURDERS the game flow and board position, like [Not quite, but I can imagine a situation...] a topdeck Time Spiral in a Tolarian Academy OTK. Need I say more?

    Me messing around with the new class, TaeKwon Boy/Girl, of RO on iRO Sakray. It's not THAT pwnage, but it is pretty hardcore for an nearly unequiped level 40(1 DEF store gear). I just liked the flying numbers, so I took a picture.

    Status: Semi-dead. Pretty apathetic to life now, and massive HW is sucking up my time. Hopefully it won't ascend to complete inactivity.
    Update: It did.

    Two things:

    One, Great Maju Garzett isnt really uber pimped.

    Two, GMG and all other monsters with ?/? stats get 0 ATK from shrink.

    What I meant when I said "uber-pimped" was a large one, such as if you sac'd a moderately large to large creature to it, like Cyber Dragon. Not that it was good. Though I didn't know the second rule. I thought it was what the question mark was when it was in play, ie. the attack points of the tribute. Sorry.
