"Reveal 3 'Cubic' monsters in your hand, and place 1 Cubic Counter on a monster your opponent controls.
(Monsters with a Cubic Counter cannot attack or activate their effects)
This Skill can only be used if you begin the Duel with a Deck/Extra Deck that contains no monsters other than 'Cubic' monsters.
This Skill can only be used once per turn and twice per Duel."
They really wanted to make this skill as bad as possible.
95% of the new skills given in repeach events are absolute complete trash. It’s stupid how they make such a big deal out of them, “get ____’s new skill!” when they’re mind numbingly horrible. Only Johann, Sho and then 2,5 years later Shark gained good skills this way.
The Vijam skill also restrict your Spell/Trap lol. And absolutely NO ONE wants to play Cubic if they can't play the staple generic backrow cards as well, because the currently available Cubic cards really needs those staple generic backrow cards to survive.
This about the backrow is so extremely true. I built a deck around specific support for searching and reviving Duzas so I can summon Buster Gundil, Blade Garoodia and Indiora which are the only good Hokais now. All of that needs protection and buffing from spells and traps.
I dunno. That would still let them play 3 floodgate 3 wall of disruption 2 amazoness SW 2 kuribos. Maybe restrict Cubic Karma's first effect as well so it doesn't work with Vijam. Ideally they should have simply made a Proto Vijam monster whose name is treated as Vijam and has a weaker effect.
