warrior team FTW
So i have a question, the situation is this: my opponent has a monster, i have none. I equip a broken bamboo sword AND a cursed bamboo sword to my opponent monster.
And to my surpise i can't activate the cursed effect and return the broken in my hand.
Is this because the effect says that the monster can attack directly but my opponent monster can't attack because it's my turn?
I can only use the effect and return to the hand only if the equipped monster can make an attack in my turn?

The reason you can't activate the effect because that is conditional. Yes you can equip to any moster. Monster you control (on your side of the field) and monster your opponet control. Since the effect of returning other bamboo sword except cursed bamboo sword is for you attacking your opponent directly this turn,it shows that effect only apply if you eqquip the cursed sword to your monster.

Was he playing Rex Raptor? If so, then it was the skill that doubles damage when his Lp is lower than yours

New box; Primal Burst
The ability to search is not once per turn. Equip two to to opponents monster(rip gearfried), storm them off, search broken and gold, equip again to Actv gold and draw two. That's just off the top of the head. Keep in mind it only has to be sent like kidmodo so... Lightsworn?Maybe?
