How are people STILL having this problem? Did he special summon it with “Rose Lover”? Please learn to read the card text.

I'm impressed the above guy runs Rose Lover without reading its effect.

This + Aromage deck = instant huge LP boost while protecting your weaker Aromage at the same time.

Once we get Synchros and we get Ancient Sacred Wyvern, this card would combo well with it as well.

but for aromage users, to use Ancient Sacred Wyverns they are going to have to release Angelica

Lol there are TONS of arbitrary cards with no particular archetype that either require you to use life points, or directly deal damage to your life points. Your just being snobby and contrarian because you think it's cool when in reality your big 🔥 at yourself for mistakes you've made in life.

This card is glitched, it never does what it says when I activate it.

And what would that be? I highly doubt it’s “glitched”

Does'nt work when facing direct attack especially from toon monster...

If not working vs toon monsters then it's glitched as the text on the card doesn't say anything about you having a monster either face up or facedown etc.

When Toon Kingdom is active, you cannot target their toon monsters

Used in a combo, very effective

it seems like there's plenty of cards related to Gagagigo's story. But did tristan really use that monster?

I think he used the basic (lowest) version of the form in some sort of alternate / virtual world story arc. It seems familar so it may have been the manga rather than the anime.

I can see this being a good card in high-level play like, you activate it to make your opponent think you're the kind of person who uses Draining Shield, so they get over-confident.

Nah, it's a card that occasionally sees legitimate play. You'd be better off with something absolutely garbage-tier like Reinforcements or a different strategy.

Before they got more limits, I used to use this card in one of my amazoness decks to use draw sense earth more.

Probably it's special summoned by rose lover that negate every opponent trap effect until end of the turn it's summoned

You could simply use this card first and save Golden apples for the next attack. And if he attacks with a stronger monster next you get a more powerful token.
