I think we'll soon get this guy or a similar 1900 ATK normal beater. We just got 1900 Spear Dragon and Thunder Nyan Nyan with negative effects. Next thing will be a vanilla beater like Vorse Raider because he's also net powered up with a Skill field spell (Yami, Mountains) and so it's no overpowered.
I could honestly see this being added in the future because unlike Luster Dragon (also a 4 star 1900 atk monster) this card doesn't get a buff from any field spell except manually placed field spells like sogen and it has pretty low defense. I could see it being released in the next main box or (more likely) the one after that as a UR or SR.
Yes, but you have to take into account Dunames Dark Witch is a fairy type so it's weak already to yami -200 and Gearfried is 1800 but an effect monster and can't get equipped so why would they add someone who is 1900 with no handicap... would be a stupid decision imo.
