Killer card in a Lapis Lazuli burn deck; with this and the right opening hand you can pull off a first or second turn kill.
it is just me or after the last update, the auto duel AI somehow never use this card (i think it works fine 1 or 2 weeks ago tho)

can you get this from the card trader? I think this would help with my gem knight deck
This is pretty good for Ojamas. It helps Fusion if you are missing one and also mills into the GY if you want to run the Delta Hurricane variant.
Gemini support??

Nay...gemini is not a normal monster in deck. They are only treated as normal monster in graveyard.

Couple that with Wall of Disruption and Forbidden Chalice for protection. Just realize this box is basically the same as Dawn Of Destiny. That is a lots of Meta card to build a deck in just one pack. Only this time it's the long forgotten Harpies

this doesnt help harpies
Technically you can send the normal Harpy Lady and then search Harpy Lady as well as 1,2 and 3 since they all count as Harpy Lady in the deck.

Some do
Yesterday I was playing some magnets and thinking "Delta is great but so slow as having 3 other magnets in the graveyard is a diffucult task". This could prove useful!
I loved this card art. Amazing
Ojama And Magnet bois got buffed
Whooo magnet warriors support :D
