Cobra Jar is a tiny Level 2 Earth/Reptile.
Level 2 means that it’s Gravity bind compatible,
for what it’s worth (wait until you see the
attack, which is also pointlessly within
Messenger of Peace’s limit as well =/). Earth
has some decent support, but most of it is only
useful in a mono-Earth deck, and that usually
means using Beast, Warriors, or Beast-Warriors.
I can think of one example of “support” for
Reptiles: Ultra Evolution Pill, which let’s you
offer one Reptile-type Monster as Tribute to
Special Summon a single Dinosaur-Type Monster
from your hand.
This card’s ATK is a pitiful 600, and the
Defense is an even more paltry 300. The only
reason to use this card appears to be its
effect, which we will discuss next. A final
note is that this card can be fetched from the
deck via Witch of the Black Forest’s,
Sangan’s, or Giant
Rat’s effects, but Rat would be a waste, cause
as we will see, this is a Flip-Effect Monster.
Cobra Jars Flip effect lets you “Place one
‘Poisonous Snake’ (Reptile-Type/Earth/Level
3/1200/1200) Token in Attack or Defense Position
on your side of the field.” Not too great, but
fortunately, there’s more: if said token is
destroyed as a result of battle, you get to
inflict 500 points of direct damage to your
Maybe in a Dinosaur/Burn deck. Does such a
thing exist? If so, either flip this on your
turn, or let the opponent hit it and flip it for
you. If you flip it, you can use Ultra
Evolution pill on one and then use the other for
tribute fodder to get, say two Dark
Black Tyranno (or a
combination of the two) onto the field, or just
use the pill on one the Jar and then normal
summon a Hyper Hammerhead? Note that using the
token for Tribute won’t trigger the burn effect.
2.5/5-Migh help out that Dinosaur deck, a Jar
deck, or in a reptile deck. Those decks don’t
seem too good, though.
1.5/5-The same: did I miss something?
3/5-More monsters=More Power. Flip it and
tribute the Jar, or let it get flipped and get
the token. They make good tribute fodder, or
defense, and the token doesn’t have that bad of
an ATK for this format. Also note that in this
format, it will almost certainly die in battle
and 500 is like a 1000 with the starting LP
Just not seeing a real use for this card.
If I want near useless Tokens that inflict LP
damage when destroyed, I’ll use
Ojama Trio to mess
with my opponent.
