3 skills that can only be used in very specific decks, vs 1 skill that can be used in any deck.

At least 2 specific tiered decks (not sure about Yugi's) that can SEARCH vs 1 skill nobody uses that draws 1 card (get 1 RANDOM card), with the risk of getting the same card.

What I’m trying to to say is, Konami is afraid of making another generic skill to powerful. Look at all the talk about Destiny Draw.

How would you improve Switcheroo without making it overpowered?

"Guaranteed to draw a card with a different name"

Fair enough, isn't it?
This is basically a scum bag skill for a scum bag character, a cheater in otherwords. But now its nerfed to 1 per duel, so the skill is completely outclassed by DESTINY DRAW of master Yami.
Sb said he never gotten the same card back with this.I used it in an event against an npc and got back my neos fusion which i only have one.i never use this skills in pvp as its unfair.

total experience.autonomous action unit is a trash card only cosmic would worth it or any which reduces by 1000 in one or two turns.i will never use cosmic.i was just curious about the action unit and switcheroo combo .no intention of abusing as i had no other cards other than that which reduce lp.

competively=using it to rank up.(knowing the broken combo ofc)
I couldnt test in casuals cos its not showing anything plus no deck is played most of the time which would show us how effective it is against(1900 atk beatstick deck) doesnt count.I was legend 1 so i could test it easily.

it doesnt show 🔥 if you beat a generic beatstick need a normal deck which have archetypes etc like heros etc.
I hate this skill. It is almost always the same thing: I go first with a hand of all monsters and one trap or spell. And the Keiths always go second and open with a cosmic cyclone, use it on my facedown, activate switcheroo to get exactly what they need, and proceed to end the game in one turn by dogpiling three monstrosities all at once on me like neos, blue-eyes and koaki. I might as well not set anything whenever I see Keith if I go first, because he will ALWAYS start with a cosmic cyclone to get his godforsaken skill to activate and get exactly what he needs.

thats why they should eliminate the 1000 lp cost.they use it for the lp cost not mainly the lp cost.the most notorious is when he uses volcanic shells along with providence or divine wrath and of switcheroo.predaplants neos sometimes even invoker
0 cards in their hand, only 1 card can make him win the game, switcheroo and he gets exactly the card he needed. What kind of bad joke is this?

It's called random distribution
If they nerfed kaiba corp. bling, then they need to do the same to this as well. It is not fair that this is the only 1000 lp cost drawing skill for any non specialized card that people can still abuse multiple times in a duel. I am so sick of these Bandit Keiths with god hands who always start with a cosmic cyclone that lets switcheroo and pull gamebreaking stuff in one or two turns like double neos, full koaki, or cyberdark leng ling with power of guardians when you got no traps left. I'm sorry, but switcheroo is being abused way too much and needs a nerf.
I draw a card I don't want at the moment,so I use this skill and then the same exact card return to my hand...Seriously,Konami?

Card trader is bugged and gives you the same 🔥ing card if you have 2 copies of it and switcheroo activates on a condition now. Damn it Konami.
Skill was always meh in my opinion.
Well, this skill has been broken for a while(the annoying drawing the same card problem), and when I thought they'd fix this, they just ruined the skill even more and the drawing the same card problem still exists. I don't know why they don't do the same thing with meta skills like Parasite Infestation and Harpies' Hunting Ground.
I did not like the change.

Giving up on this skill now. Every time I activates it while I still have more than 10 cards in my deck, I still draw back the same card.
