This kind of effect can't really miss its timing anyway, so that's completely irrelevant. It'd just be an improvement. Koa'ki Meiru Guardian is a much better card than Doomcaliber Knight is. (Which is likely why we got Doomcaliber first.)
Be careful trying to negate this thing's effect. I had Axe of Fools equipped to it which is supposed to negate effects and boost ATK, but when my other monster activated its effect this asshole kicked in anyway and killed them both.
The only stupid thing here is you answering your own question... that and getting butthurt by how people type. Caps or no caps, who cares? The guy who started the discussion was obviously referring to the extra deck monsters, but some smartass had to be hurr durr they're already in electric overload hurr durr...
