2 Econs is very Pro.
Trunade is played mostly by noobs, however some really op builds have 1 econ and 1 trunade.

Econ over trunade will be always better in my opinion. Econ can save your life points if you go second or if your field is weak, trunade cannot.
Sometimes when my opponent uses this card during my main phase I can still change my monster to attack position and sometimes I can't. I don't get it...

If your monster was just summoned, or already changed position that turn, it can’t change again after controller goes off

I am getting sick of seeing every player run this. You think Konami would've banned by now so they can make more cash but I guess not.

Not deadly?
I watched the replay of one player’s match on reddit yesterday and he almost lost the game against Subterrors, then he used this card to take the opponent’s monster under his control and kill him in one turn.

All tier 1 decks use this while they can.
And most nerfs were just so that they could not use it anymore (E-con in Vampire decks for example).

I hear ya man. It does get pretty annoying once you realise almost everyone runs this card. It's a overrated card that has shined for too long.

This card works best in decks that easily swarm the field.

It also good on turn 1, you can temporarily take the opponent’s monster to your side to prevent activation of various effects, then proceed to OTK.

If you think this card is overrated, you are using it incorrectly.
This should be the first forbidden card in duel link.
only giving up a card. um, what?? you give up life points every turn using archfiend cards but 800/1000 life point cost was too much for a powerful spell card like enemy controller? but you have to pay 1000 life points just to "look" at someone else's cards (seal of the ancients)?
Its funny I think this card is the main reason new decks immediately get hit. Too good of an effect.

Not really useful now. Most people prefer trunade.

It is a quick-play spell though, and you can use it if it gets targeted by a spell/trap card. Hey trunade! can only be used during a turn.
