Used quite often in a gravekeeper deck, recruiter can be brought back numberous times because of Gravekeeper's Chief's ability or its own effect. Banishing and preventing its activation will make a huge impact against gravekeeper decks.
3rd point how is that not a con? it has low defense for a tribute monster, with the Econ and windstorm in almost every deck, it makes it very open to attacks from any monster that can reach 1800+ which is very easy now that we have L4 monsters that reach 2k with a Field spell.
just because a con is shared by most cards doesn't mean it isn't a con.
You're underestimating the effect, my lad. Yomi ship doesn't do anything against this guy, because it's not sent to the graveyard. Also, it stops any graveyard effect (most searchers). It's a really nice card. I agree that the stats ain't great, but still, great card in bluff trap decks!
Hope this card is still available during the S joey event. Need.
can confirm the synergy with zeta, if you can discard a zeta (say with cost down) then every card banished gives you a token, which could be used for further summons. 2 zeta's in graveyard means a chain of 2 units for each single banish.
