If you think this is the worst, you should play the real life version of Yugioh.

We have various hand traps that when combined, they pretty much negate everything lol
one of the most versatile and useful cards ever
never gets old
How on earth does this trigger on hazy cards when this is an EFFECT and Hazy's are immune to card EFFECTS!!! Bad coding? Bad translation? Please someone explain this!

Its bad wording on Konami's part. By "Target" the game means effects that specifically say "target" or "select".

It's not bad wording, yugioh is very strict with wording. It's just people not knowing the rules.

It doesnt target. It just changes the attacking monster into defense position like mirror force destroying attacking monsters.
It's konami making cards op cause they chose words like that beforehand and decided to just legalize it.

Read Sphere Kuriboh's effect. It doesn't have the words "Target" or "Select". It simply says "If... You can..." You should read the different types of Effect, a quick guide is on the Tutorial portion of the Settings tab.

At least know you know how to read a card my dude.
Traps are likely to be limit, so maybe this card will become a bit more popular?
Is still worth invest in it?
I have a vamp but only one kuriboh.

Definitely, there are some Very Old cards that are EVER lasting and totally competitive, a clear example of this would be cards such as: Mirror wall, super rush headlong, wall of disruption, floodgate traphole, canadia and yeah, sphere kuriboh as well.

Probably, but floodgate and canadia are slightly better right now.

Whoever invested his /her gems in this card back in the day when Ultimate Rising was released must be really pleased because pretty much all top tier decks have lots sphere kuribohs in them. Except blue eyes, 'cause totally aggressive decks don't need to stall ofc.

Stall? Sphere kuriboh is a protection against OTK and Anki basically

Blue-eyes doesn't need Sphere Kuriboh, that's what he probably meant

more like he's bragging he's better than everyone because he doesn't use sphere kuriboh in his 'totally agressive' blue eyes deck.

I got my first in my first pack opening in the game, and the second and third from UR sales (which seem rigged to prioritise certain tech cards imo)
