The Almighty Light Cage Ė Expanded Worlds World Champion Card Uber Rare Ė OP35 Energy - Combat

Power: Energy attack doing 16 life cards of damage. 3: Expanded only. Search your Discard Pile for any card and put it in your hand. If the card can be played during your Non-Combat Step, play it now. Remove from the game after use. Limit 1 per deck.

Only fit that the World Champion gets a broken good card. Okay, no where as broken as Ultimate Champion, but this wipes the floor with Champion Drill and Champion Aura.

Anyway, letís take a trip back to Mondayís card. Remember the ability to pull something out of nowhere and have it just take over? How about that occurring no matter what (unless a random Pure Defense is played)? Letís seeÖ I need an attack, so Iíll go get Black Uber Blast. I need to look at my opponentís hand, so Iíll pull Confrontation. I know my opponent is going to end combat, so I need a Trunks Energy Sphere. Key card isnít in my discard pile, but Mark of the Dragon and Fatherly Advice are. There are just so many broken options you can have with this it isnít funny.

Problem stems from getting this early game with small discard piles. Late game, you might be able to pull something good, but then again, youíre the World Champion and your opponent should know you have this card. So your opponent will be denying anything good from hitting your discard pile with good discard pile removal.

But either way, there isnít a card like this anywhere. Being able to pull almost any solution to something late game is extremely useful. This card IS good and worthy of a World Champion, and should definitely be played. You can get anything but a DB (since they canít be in the discard), and you never know what can pop up. City In Turmoil would be hilarious to say the least.

Expanded: 4.9 out of 5.0 (any broken searcher deserves this rating)
Focused: N/A
Sealed: N/A

The Almighty Light Cage:

Not quite up there with Champion's Drill, or even Mark of the Dragon, but still, worthy. It gets you whatever you need from the discard pile, and it does not care if you drew it during your combat or theirs. Time, Epic, or any of the other all-blocks, Gohan's Kick, Majin Buu's Fury, Trunks Energy Sphere, any of these can be peeled off your deck for damage or effects, and you just will not care, as this can get it back in a pivotal combat. Nice, but I would like it better if it went into your Life Deck as well.

Expanded 5/5 (you still play it, even with the drawbacks of only fetching from the discard)
