Gishki archetype has an incredible ability to recycle their monsters from the Graveyard back to the player’s hand or deck, which makes it a challenge to deck out a Gishki player.
You can also use Moray of Greed to shuffle Gishki Chain and another WATER monster back to your deck and draw 3 cards.
Gishki Beast can Special Summon Gishki Chain from your Graveyard, but its effects will not be activated.
Gishki Chain can reveal any of these cards when you look at the top 3 cards of your deck and add it to your hand. This can be very good because you can add whichever cards you lack, in order to set up for ritual summon faster.
Gishki Ariel has Flip effects that searches for any “Gishki” monsters from your Deck to your Hand, this includes Gishki Chain. Gishki Natalia has effects that target 1 “Gishki” monster in your Graveyard and return it to your top Deck, this includes Gishki Chain. Aquamirror Meditation can return 2 “Gishki” monsters from the Graveyard to your hand, this includes Gishki Chain.
How does that make any sense? Idaten only searches out ritual spell cards.
This card is better, in many situations, than either Senji or Sonic because it offers more versatility. It has decent attack, unlike Senji and Sonic, can search out EITHER a spell or a monster, and allows you to scry all in one card.
I think he meant "can't be searched by Benten...."
Great card. It is not comparable to Senju or Sonic Bird, because it does not give you the option to search EXACTLY for the card you want. And also, its attribute and type does not fit into the strongest archetypes of rituals. However, if your deck focuses on many monsters and ritual spells, this card is AMAZING, it allows you not only to get 1 ritual or spell, but to sort the remaining 2 cards in any way you like.
It is a powerful search that is useful in various ritual decks.
