I've tried this in my pineapple plant beast deck it is quite consistent as a finisher to be honest. I know it doesn't seem to synergise with pineapple at first glance but turns out it totally does.
I personally love this build for the atmosphere deck but I'm open to edits if people would like to contribute n.n (I'm aware of the switcheroo change incoming thinking of testing restart or balance)

it will be more competitive if you focus on venus by adding order to charge and normal monsters, the atmosphere used as the finisher
Too bad it's a WINGED BEAST... just had the thought to summon it with Obedience Schooled + Playful Possum but that won't work.
Really wish I had have got bubonic vermin when it was available. 2nd turn easy summon for this card. Could make a nasty deck.
Why doesn't kuriboh work against this card?

Don't know why people say this is bad, it's actually quite good people who say its bad jist don't know how to use it properly.

Heres me easily devastating an ultimate cyber stein deck
This card is terrible. Cannot use soul exchange, cannot unequip, does not survive like relinquished, cannot be returned from graveyard with contract...

hahahahahahahahaha you haven't even used it I can tell.
I tried this card, fucking terrible, takes a bit to summon, lost it to a first attack from mirror wall, summoned another one, got eCON'ed when I tried to take his monster, came back with a measly 1000 attack and got wrecked. LOLOL! relinquish is wayyy better. AT best, its a SR. NOT even worth a UR.

You never attack with it not usually .. just most imp and finishing attacks and let ur back row do the rest i reached plat 2 with it and stopped to boost my chaos deck .. anyway build a defensive minded deck around her u'll beat almost every body .. and yea add vinus to it

lol... if you use relinquished and attack into a mirror wall, you're most likely going to get destroyed next turn anyway. Same thing with the e.con, you won't be able to take his monster and left with 0 attack, which sounds worse than atmosphere. "LOLOL"

you obviously don't know how to use it properly. This is actually easier to summon than relinquished. Ive also mirror wall a relinquished before and killed it next turn, relinquished not dying equipped with a monster is a double edge sword. People need to assess what they both do before making judgments
Reached plat 2 with this and stuck something is missing ..
Any improvements guys ??

no vermin tripple venus, no grav axe or mask, 2 otc 1 econ and 3 shine balls. def not 2 trap jammer. 3 thunder dragon works well with this deck and consider a jar of greed for deck thinning.

What's the bird trap? And what's the name of the card to the right of blast held by tribute?
<< Anonymous(Mr.tepo)

@ClassicManEnre the bird trap is Windstorm of Etaqua, the LVL 25 reward for Mai. It forced all opposing monsters from ATK to DEF positions. The card to the right of Blast Held by Tribute is Rising Energy, SR card from Wonders of the Sky, which increases your monster's ATK by 1500 by discarding 1 card from hand (for 1 turn)
what is the meaning by "Once per turn: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls" ? my interpretation is you can equip and unequip the opponent monster. But it seems it doesnt work like that

It most likely means that if you equip a monster and the opponent immediately destroys it somehow, you can't equip another one until the next turn.
I've been running this card with bubonic vermin, mystic box, and regretful rebirth. It's been doing pretty good. :3
