Yeah, it should be really frustrating playing a slow, skilless, boring, annoying, burn-stall deck to finally loose in such an epic way. I have some spare tissues in case you need them.
any recommended similar card? or hand trap maybe?

Zapped BECMD and a BEWD with a Lava Golem yesterday. Poor sucker never saw it coming. Good times. :3

Well, Quintet Magician counters Lava Golem.
Learned the hard way, this card doesn’t target. Too strong.
Traps are likely to be limit, so maybe this card will become a bit more popular?

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)
Im finding i can’t activate sphere kuriboh when i bring it to my hand woth sangaan.. anyone else noticing this?

Yes, yes you can't.
Just read the card text of Sangan carefully and you will understand why
I give up

I pulled my first SK on the 199th out of 200 packs.
I got the second one from the most recent UR Dream Ticket.
I could really use 3, though.
SK is never gonna stop being one of the best techs in this game. Best card against the multitude of OTK meta and cheese decks out there.
This one and BACON SAVER are the best.
Literally, life savers ^^

gawd that bacon saver is really annoying but really effective if you play that grass looks greener. Anyway, I just GOT MY 3rd SPHERE KURIBOH with just 1500 gems, I couldn't be more happy !
