Maniacal Blinding Slash – Shadow Dragon Saga Ultra Rare - #240 Combat – Physical

Drill sweeper. Not bad. Doesn’t get around Orange Focusing Drill, but then again it is still good.

Drills are for the Weak and Android 17 Smirks were options before. This one can be better since it can’t be Sphered, but on the other hand it discards so Smirks takes the cake. Bottom line… run this if you have major problems with Drills. I can see this at least taking a Sensei Deck space because it can do quite a bit against the right decks.

Try this out. Not as potent as Majin Destruction since there are ways to kill drills, but still a decent card and worthy of being a UR.

Expanded: 4.7 out of 5.0 (Orange Drill, DB, etc…)
Focused: 4.7 out of 5.0 (not as many options to kill Drills here)
Sealed: 2.6 out of 5.0 (Drills shouldn’t be around too much here)

Maniacal Blinding Slash

Now this, we like. Drills are infinitely more helpful than setups, in both Focused and Expanded, and tearing all of them off the table can help tons, in the right situation. Orange decks, for one, live and die by their drills, and depriving them of all that support can win the game. Sadly, they have Orange Focusing to protect them from this, but one can usually discard that prior to tossing this out. It is not a horrible physical attack either, so it escapes the sphere fate that awaits some of the other mass removal cards this set has. I would play this in Focused, at least, for sure. Expanded possibly not as much, as that set has some better mass drill removal cards, though they are events.

Limited, average. It is an attack, but the likliehood of someone pulling enough drills for this to hurt them is unlikely. Still, it is an attack.

Focused 5/5

Expanded 4/5 (just better stuff)

Sealed 3/5
