Just plain awesome card. It’s also a backer, which boosts archtypes like Orange Pinpoint. The reason being it shoves a Dragon Ball back into your opponent’s deck. This gets around Goku’s Capturing Drill, among other things. Sure your opponent gets another use out of the Dragon Ball, but regardless, Orange has a much better time dealing with Ball decks with this thing around.

As a backer, you can get multiple uses out of this card. Having it stick around throughout the game often means that Ball decks will need to play more than one ball a turn to consider pulling off Ball victory, and at the same time, make sure one of them doesn’t get removed via True Face of Evil or the like.

It can also be played as a powerful non-combat card. It can sit there until needed, and often you’ll want that extra attack, not to mention the right time to rid yourself of a Ball on the table.

And of course, we can’t forget that it nukes a non-combat card in play. That can be a good thing and a bad thing, as you notice that it can discard your own. Watch though; it most likely will be a blessing in disguise. Discarding a non-combat and chasing away a Dragon Ball is already good. Energy attack for 9 isn’t anything to shake a stick at either.

Expanded: 4.7 out of 5.0 (this card along with Pinpoint Mastery gives Ball decks a run for their money)
Focused: 4.7 out of 5.0 (ditto, not to mention this is one of the best cards to choose from)
Sealed: 4.7 out of 5.0 (not very many reasons not to run this)

This is a nice card. Let's break it down. It's a setup. That's a plus, because it's an attack and doesn't take up space in your hand. Decent damage, 9 is nothing to scoff at, 13 if you use the empower on it. The effects are really nice though. The first is discarding a non. That's ALWAYS a plus, unless your opponent isn't running any nons. Then you get screwed if you have other nons (and in Orange, you most likely will be). There's also the nice little Dragonball Bounce. This is great against Dball decks. You can potently run this against your opponent and destroy their 1-6 Dballs so they have to waste their last searcher on either the one you just sent back or the one that was left. Not to mention you might manage to deal enough damage to gain a Dball as a bonus. My only complaint is that you HAVE to discard a non in play. That's right folks, it can be yours, it can be your opponents, you just have to discard one in play. Overall, my rating is going to be simple:

Expanded: 3/5 (It's an attack that's a setup. How kewl is that.)

Focused: 3/5 (See above)

Sealed: 4/5 (It's useful here too, as you still get an attack and you can disrupt your opponent's random non)
