Life Cost 0 You can use the skill when your Life Points are 1000 or less. You do not have to spend Life Points to activate a card until your opponent's next turn ends. You can only use the skill once per Duel.
Limit this garbage card. It amazes me how this tcg banned card is only in duel links. With the starting life points at 5000 and life cost 0 Tea Stein just curbstomps. Yes this can be countered easily with the right card but that doesn't make this idiotic card any less annoying. Limit this card to 1-2 for goodness sake.
It says "until your opponent's next turn ends." but I survived two more turns after they double summoned Fusion monsters using Cyber Stein and they never paid 10000LP! They didn't pay anything at all! Broken af.
If we use usual format, you might see four fusion monsters as well
So, are there fusion monsters that this card doesn't affect? Since there are a number of fusion monsters that can only be summoned by a fusion summon, does that mean that they can't be accessed by this card's effect? I was wanting to try combining this card with the newly added Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem, but it states that it can only be summoned by a fusion summon. Would this card's ability override that condition or not?
UFORoid, Biofalcon, Vampire Dragon and Ties of the Brethren can all potentially search Stein but all of them are pretty garbage. Transmodify could be the best way to search him once a lvl 1 Dark Machine Type monster is added to duel links.
Ya Boi Guzma!!!
For the record, this card has been banned in the TCG since its inception. It most definitely is an OP card and combatting it with someone using Tea Gardner is near impossible if you aren't built to destroy OP monsters with card effects (Michizure, Hane-hane, ect.)
Here is my thoughts on why this card is even in the game. Since you naturally start with 4000LP, they probably figured cyber-stein isn't as OP in duel links as it is in the TCG, where you start with 8000LP. However, with Tea's Life Cost 0 ability, you essentially take away the crippling effect that comes with using Cyber-stein normally, and combined with LP regen cards like Supremacy Berry or Dian Keto Cure Master, and you basically are giving away victory to the person who carries 3 cyber-steins in their deck and multiple 3200+ ATK fusion monsters but nary a single polymerization or fusion gate in their deck. It really is unstoppable and the only way to combat it is pray to God the opponent started with a shit hand.
Anyone defending this card as not OP has obviously never played the actual TCG, especially in advanced format. The least they could do is limit it but it doesn't look like they will any time soon.
can anyone comment on how effective the following combo is? practical use would be helpful so i dont waste my time trying to assemble this combo. life boost gamma + magnet circle LV2 > cyber stein + blue eyes ultimate (or other high ATT fussion monster)
