glad I won't be seeing this deck anymore their artwork gives me c r i n g e
I don't get why people whine about this card being broken, I mean how different is it from simoon, sure merchant doesn't have a cost but you still get another normal summon when you use simoon, if you ask me its the real mvp

This is the main problem, say again they won't limit this card. Remember to come back when they announce the next banlist.

Yep this is one of the most broken card of all time allowing too many summons in a single turn. Karakuri turn 1 is near unbeatable, far stronger than Blackwing turn 2. Blackwing got nerfed 3 times and this will suffer the same fate soon.
You cannot search for Golden Gearbox due to it not being called Karakuri Golden Gearbox. This seems like an oversight on the dev team's part, if anything.

No, this is an oversight on Gamea's article maker, Golden Gearbox shouldn't have been listed in this article.

Golden Gearbox is a "Karakuri" support, but Golden Gearbox itself is not a "Karakuri" card, even in OCG.
Really strong card, I can smell the meta hate from now.
More searching?
