It is rarely used in ranked games. Even if some decks in Duel Links require having a good starting hand to set it's tempo, "Switcheroo" has the upper-hand which gives you an option to retain cards and reshuffle an unwanted card for a specific scenario. In general, using this skill is unreliable, but might work just fine.
So salty that they nerfed this the way they did. Now there is pretty much no incentive to use this. Legit guarantees you a loss if you don't get an amazing hand. Konami don't understand how nerfing works, you aren't supposed to make these things shit, you are supposed to balance them you hacks.
Duel Bricks. How does Konami expect anyone to have a decent hand? Especially with the 4 card hand format, it’s whoever is able to top decks their winning cards wins the duel. Now going first is even more of a death sentence.
