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.
The only thing this card was ever good at was early game Forbidden Memories, thanks to the overflow of weak Zombies and Plants making this 1 of the easiest fusions to make.
too powerful. should be limited to 4

Sometimes I won more UR cards than SR (Neos, Dark Magician, Darkflare Dragon instead of Kidmodo...)
Meh. I'm just looking forward the zombie world field spell... Zomibe Red Eyes will be the true zombie ace!
