At this point, this skill should get rid of the benefit for the opponent, so only you get one more card. And the not being able to summon should just apply to effect monsters if anything? Not just ban summoning.
They specifically said that this skill granted too advantage to people using non effect monsters on first turn. Anyway I agree with you that before the nerf this skill was still usable, right now has lost all its appeal
well there are a lots of skills just put there to make number, like LP Boost Ω or the majority of Tristan's skills which noone uses because they can't be possibly good in any deck. The most useless character in this sense is probably Scud
This skill deserved a nerf but this is way too much
With the nerf this skill is still useful... for your opponent which has 1 more card and the possibility to do everything. And if you go second and have this skill it is the end. I don't see any use except for decks which use set cards on first turn like Sylvans
