During battle between this attacking card and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent. If this card attacks, it is changed to Defense Position at the end of the Damage Step.
Use Half Shut on Spear Dragon to protect it from attacks when it's on defense position. When it switches to defense position due to its effect, Labyrinth of Nightmare switches it back to attack position at the End Phase. Gamushara can switch Spear Dragon to attack position when it's targeted by an attack, it also inflicts damage equal to the attack of Spear Dragon when the attacking monster is destroyed by battle.
Level 4 beatsticks that are only beatsticks should not be UR. They're almost never worth it. Not only do they often get powercreeped out by an N or R card in the very next pack or so, but they're not even extremely valuable when they're freshly released.
Are there that many competitive decks with Blazing Inpachi that wouldn't also work with Great Angus? These marginals gains in ATK rarely tilt a game one way or the other in a meta swarming with non-battle removal like SRH and tribute to the doomed, and even moreso swarming with cards that change battle positions like econ, security orb and windstorm that are all staples. Not to mention Mirror wall or even wild tornado for goodness sakes.
Obviously the higher attack on any monster the better but let's be real, you won't win many games with an 1850 beater that you wouldn't have won with an 1800 or even a 1700 in its place, especially if those weaker monsters have actual useful effects or a better DEF. It's all just superficial. Of course the first 1900ATK level 4 should be rarer than most but I think SR is sufficient.
They don't have to be ultra powerful but In need theory they should be the best cards in the game, which you can certainly argue this card is not one of. In fact, you could probably list several SR and maybe even a couple R/N cards that are superior to this card. For fairness you could even use cards in boxes of the same size like the SR super rush headlong which should probably be an UR instead
That's a good point. Technically speaking, you have the same odds of pulling this card as you have to pull any of the SR cards (1 out of however many packs you have left because there's only one of each SR In a box). With that said, there's only two spots for URs in a box, only two spots for cards that in theory are of of the highest caliber - why waste one spot on such a mediocre card?
This card is amazingly underrated. Ive been lucky to score 3, and has been running this as a beatstick in my red eyes (ties that bind skill) deck, and this is an amazingly threatening monster that completely destroys exodia along with red eyes fast pace. The piercing is devestating if used right, 1900 base atk is insane even if you do not attack with it, very satisfied with getting 3 of this. Furthermore,i experimented a bit and super rush is obviously super good with this too. Try 3 of this in red eyes. You wont regret it
In the 1st place, trying to get 3 Spear Dragon is just pure bad. Running it alongside Red Eyes is just another level of bad. I mean, the guy did says he's beating exodia deck which mostly runs by either bad duelist or memer
Sure, i dont run a refined version of red eyes with 3 wyvern or gozuki. Since I have 3 spear dragons, I experimented with it in dragon beatdown and red eyes and really saw a potential in red eyes, as the red eyes can be board prescence, making your opponent scared to go aggressive on your spear dragons. And if they go on defensive, piercing from spear every turn is pretty devestating
Im just saying with super rush and other defensive cards around, with this card having high base atk and piercing on its own, people do underrate the power of this card. Exodia decks may be a meme, but i ran up against many exodia deck that just straight up have head in their hands, and win after i destroy 2 or 3 monsters. With piercing, I'll kill them faster, through their Blue dragon summ
Wrong mate,I haven't played mtg before although I have heard the term "trample"used by yugioh players before piercing damage is another way to describe this card(and others)effect,silly dolt don't you realize that when you assume you're making an ass of you and me?
I hope and wish if there is a rational reason why this is an UR card. There must be an idea behind this (?)
This is worse than piercing moray who is a SR. Dafuq Konami? How you gunna put this shit card next to a beautiful sexy Silent Magician? Is this your kinky way of having some pointy long nosed flapping winged goblin next to a Smexy Silent Magician Lvl 8 to make some kind of porn joke? Damn you Japanese hentai lovers, damn you all !!
