It's more not that likely that you have normal monster/can summon it while your target is on the field except you play often some specific deck to feel this way. Spell on your hand? You often have many spell, more with that HHG anywhere except you play HHG yourself
OK my game must have just glitched. I specifically added this card to my deck because I thought it didn't target and yet it wouldn't activate against a player who straight up played Hazy Sphinx and no spell or traps in that turn or any turn prior. No other monster effects either. You telling me that it targets thought it is unwritten?
This card is more suitable for competitive setting. Yes, Tribute to the Doomed, SRH, OTC, or any other monster removal might have an easier activation requirement than this card, but the effect of destroying cards in the hand is so good, again in a competitive setting. It ruins some REBD variants, handless, kaibaman BEUD, etc. Usage of Normal monsters are limited in high-ranking play except for vanilla harpies, so OTC can only come second after this. To some extent, this card synergizes well with Nobleman of Extermination. Don't use on Gold or below, it will only give bad draws if your deck is not structured to have spare spell cards that are free to toss around (like excess Econs, Double Summons, or Soul Exchange(s)).
This card sucks because you don't want to throw away your spell cards. Order to Charge is better because you can use the monster to attack, destroy a monster, then OTC and destroy a second one. Meanwhile with this, you need to keep the spell unused in hand.
It's going to situationally win you games, but doesn't deserve the UR status at all.
I think it's actually more useful than otc now, considering the meta nowadays. Especially good now for three star demotion decks when you don't wanna use an extra double summon anymore and destroy their cards rather than destroying one of your 7 star monsters on the field.
I think now it's actually pretty useful now for that reason.
As anon says you often dont need destroy your monster. If your monster cant atk though your enemy anyway, OTC makes no difference and bad that you must summon to use it, also countered with ECon and charge your own 2 monsters. About situationally OTC is 'very very more'. You must play melee vanilla low star monster to feel good with OTCing
Ok so i'm kinda in a pickle here, i've already open 77 pack and got 6 UR (Gale lizard, Brain research lab, Symbol of Duty, Fusion Sage, Magic Drain, and Seven Tools of the bandit) and about 10 SR with only just 1 Double Summon, is it worth for me to just reset the box or is it worth to continue til i get Eliminating the League?
