Serious question.

Why do Gishki cards came in the 10th box? iykwim
Would Sea Stealth Attack clear the halved ATK effect by next turn?

how exactly? if summon a monster the atk is CA player is going to drop dikini without OTKing you
Guys, remember that this card will only be good if it's the exact level of the summoned ritual monster. Meaning that clearing the opponent's board with this card may not be what you think.
Multiple soul exchange (if enemy has more than one monster on the field) and a gishki ritual spell in a single card... wow
Mah Boi
Wow. Tributing your opponent's monsters for your ritual summon.
Is there any other ritual card in the TCG that works like that?
