This card should not be an UR at this point in the game...

and I agree with you. This card should be SR instead of UR, just like his Princess.

I thought it was his daughter?
Hopefully Bonz will be obtainable someday, and he'll have a really good skill to make this viable. Or, it'll be another Moth to the Flame.
loved this card, can be used in a deck with princess, king, castle, balloons, dog marlon. I LOVE TROLL DECKS <3
this card would be good if bonz actually dropped it. i only have the 1 from getting like 10 wins

This is how you know drop rates suck because you have one and I have 6 but I haven't gotten that continuous spell card once

The drop RATE is fine. It's just bad luck when it comes to not getting the cards you want.

Lol i had 5 of them from previous event, dropped one today and when i unlocked him i got the 7th pumpking. Wish i could get the 2nd ghostrick witch tho
This card would be decent if they released it when duellinks was released. Now, power creep has made it unplayable
I use this card to beat Cyber Dakini. Thanks SRH.
I see a lot of hate for this card, but honestly I have lost to bonz with some of my best decks because of how it runs. Not only does this combo well with Castle of Illusions, boosting its attack to obscene levels if unchecked, the true terror is his daughter, Pumprincess the princess of ghosts, which lowers all opponents monsters attack during every standby phase. If you get the illusions combo and the Pumprincess combo off, You will always be growing in power while your opponents monsters cant do anything to stop the onslaught. Heck, I almost lost a duel because my Meteor B. Dragon was a puny 1600 attack thanks to all the counters on the field. And that monster was originally 3500! Really looking forward to see Bonz's skills to get these combos working.

This card is 7 months too late, and even then it would’ve sucked. UR should’ve been Mezuki....

Mezuki would be a ur in a 400 pack box

I can agree with that, but hey, with how much the games changing I wouldn’t have been surprised to see Mezuki as the event UR.
