This card counts as 2 Supernatural characters for your card effects. (*) When SOUL COLLECTORS is defeated, your opponent discards the top card of his deck.

This is one of the best characters for Supernatural now, seeing it counts for two characters for cards like Full Moon. To top that off, it is not Unique so you can fill the table with them, and your opponent has to discard the top card when they defeat it, so it works great all around. Downside is that they are fairly weak characters, and if you don't fill your hand with them to save them, it will be quite hard to avoid being swarmed or overwhelmed shard wise.

Definitely run a bunch of these in Supernatural to mill your opponent fast, but make sure you have some other Unique characters that can put other characters out of commission, or you'll find yourself losing to shard victory extremely fast.

Okay. Soul Collectors. Hrm. Supernatural. Hrm. Kikyo. Hrm.

Seriously now, go ahead. It's good for Kikyo's milling. Infact, I'd name it a near staple. Depending on what you're going for, you can just use these, or you can use the slightly stronger "Kikyo's Soul Stealers" for a little boost in colors and an equally devastating effect. Both are great.

If you're going for a quick mill, use these. If you're going to be annoying, use both. If you want to do the killing and beatdown strategy, use "Kikyo's Soul Stealers".

I suppose it's up to your playstyle. Personally, I like both. Then again, I don't play with Kikyo or her Soul Stealers....

Casual: 4/5 - A lot of decks here are just kill, kill, kill. Your Soul Stealers getting wacked so often will kill their deck.

Tournament: 3/5 - I havn't seen Kikyo used in tournament's yet, but I think she can do well. I suppose we'll have to wait and see.

Art: 3/5 - Cute little Soul Stealers doing their job! ^-^

(*) When SOUL COLLECTORS is defeated, your opponent discards the top card of his deck.

Soul Collectors is an interesting card that will help supernatural decks be
more competitive. First of all it counts as two characters for your card
effects. Some supernatural cards that benefit from this effect are:
Kikyo, Fading Soul: When this character is defeated, your opponent
discards the top card of his deck for each Supernatural character you
control. (*) All of your other Supernatural characters gain +2 to all colors

when attacking.
Full Moon: Your opponent discards the top card of his or her deck for
each Supernatural character you control.
Border to the spirit world: Play if you control more Supernatural
characters than your opponent. You are considered to have +3 Supernatural
characters in play for card effects.

Now, if I have Soul Collectors in play, along with Border to the spirit
world. Assuming my opponent has no Supernatural Characters in play, that
would mean I am considered to have 5 supernatural characters in play. If I
play Full moon, my opponent discards the top FIVE cards from his/her deck.
That can be a big swing if your goal is to deck your opponent. Add Kikyo,
Fading soul and your opponent will think twice about attacking her.

Casual: (In a supernatural deck) 5/5 Hey it's a common, has a good effect.
Go for it!
Tournament (Again Supernatural) 4/5 you will need to be running multiple
copies of Full moon and Border to the spirit world. Watch out for Ready for
War!
Art: 2/5 Kikyo holding a Soul collector. Not that impressive

the supernatural trait interested me in the first set, and it gained little support till this card came out. for a 1 DC, its stats are decent at 3-2-1. Its effect is very nice for the mill theme that supernatural is famous for. its first effect allows it to count as two supernaturals for card effects, boosting Full Moon, Urasue, and other characters that mill depending on the amount of supernaturals on the field. It also mills when defeated, which is a plus even though it is for one card. multiples of this will benefit a mill deck greatly. running around 8 seems good for the deck type.

4/5 a very solid card for the mill archtype

Soul Collectors has huge potential when it come to supernatural decks. This card was made for decking out your opponent. If you play it with the Event Card Full Moon you can mill two cards from your opponent's deck instead of just one seeing it counts as two supernatural characters. You get four Soul Collector's on your side of the field and you can discard about 15% of your opponent's deck with the effect of just one Full Moon assuming your opponent has 55 cards in his deck when played.

Soul Collectors also has some other advantages for counting as two supernatural characters. If you have Kikyo, Reborn in the discard pile and one Soul Collectors is placed over it, then you need only one more supernatural card instead of two on top of Kikyo, Reborn to use her effect.
This can help bring a powerful card back to your hand much quicker.

The second effect of Soul Collectors is just an added bonus. Your opponent won't want to attack this card because they will lose one card from their deck, but if they don't attack it then the effect of Full Moon can mill them even faster. No matter what this card will mill your opponent if played right.

This card will be in most, if not all, Supernatural Mill decks that are played. The effect is great for milling, however the low colors make it a poor attacking card. This card will help a person win by decking an opponent out far more often than it would help in winning by shard victory.

Casual: 2 / 5 - I doubt this will see much casual play for most people play beat down.

Tournament: 4 / 5 - If a person runs a Supernatural Mill deck in the Tournament you can bet you will see this card in it.

Art: 3 / 5 - Got to like the pink background.

 Running a supernatural or decking deck? This card is one of the staple characters. Run a few Kikyo, Fading Soul in your deck and that is basically all you need to deck someone. This deck can use Epic Battle (yesterday's card of the day) to its full extent, as long as you are decking the person.
 Cards like Overjoyed and Returning Home can be a problem, but if they have to continuously discard cards they will be out of them soon enough. This card is good only for a deck with Kikyo, Fading soul or other forms of Kikyo tohugh. Any other use just doesn't use the full potential of the card.
 
 Casual: 2/5
 Tournament: 5/5 if played right.

This card counts as 2 Supernatural characters for your card effects. When this character is defeated, your opponent discards the top card of his deck.

Soul Collectors is a card that greatly contributes to Supernatural mill decks. A decktype that had been somewhat ignored until the Kassen expansion. This card does not offer much in terms of color values but makes up for it with an effect that greatly benefits certain cards.

Full Moon, an event that forces the opponent to discard the top card of his deck for each Supernatural character you control, benefits greatly from the fact that Soul Collectors counts as 2 Supernatural characters and is a non-unique character. Having multiple Soul Collectors out can make playing Full Moon late game become quite a game breaking move because decks will likely be low on remaining cards.

Kikyo, Fading Soul forces the opponent to discard the top card of his deck for each Supernatural character you control when she is defeated and gives all of your Supernatural characters +2 to all colors when attacking. Having multiple Soul Collectors in play makes attacking Kikyo a risky move since they count as 2 Supernatural characters each. If the opponent decides to leave Kikyo alive, the boost she gives might make it so your Soul Collectors can defeat a few of your opponents characters.

Soul Collectors, when combined with various mill cards can quite effectively force the opponent to have to work quickly or risk reaching a point where paying deck costs becomes a liability.

Ratings:

Supernatural Mill Deck - 4/5

Non-Mill Deck - 0/5 - No reason to run it in a non-mill deck.
