Play it with Luminous Spark so that it has good ATK right off the bat.

Unless you have Shine Palace, because instead of 500 atk you get 700, and you don't lose 400 def.

It's a good vanilla :D
Might be interesting for Synchro decks?
I love this card so much.

Same :D
I noticed that in an auto duel, when it attacks directly the opponent, it does not activate its effect. Maybe it was a coincidence but I am assuming it just works like it in general.

Well the card does say that you CAN do it. So maybe the AI decided not to activate it.

The AI is a brainhead.
Seto Kaiba
After getting it's effect, you can use Seto Kaiba´s Beatdown skill and avoid 4 star ladybug of doom.
This card has saved my hide a bunch of times with Kaiba's Peak Performance skill and the field spell. I would imagine it does not work as well without this field spell. If you strategically play this card while making sure you already have a monster on the field that can clear your opponent's field, this monster can be really powerful and useful.

i got bad luck to pull this card. :( 1700 gems just get 1 copy. hmm :'(
If the spell/trap card zones must be used as pendulum zones, pendulum decks wouldn't be that...
This would completely change the effect tho. They probably do the same with Tortoise: Just delete...
