highest ATK among your opponent's Attack Position
-common so not hard to obtain
-Harder to obtain than sak. armor
-kills the highest atk. monster.
basically we see widespread ruin replacing sakuretsu
armor these days why? because of cyber phoenix which
prevents us from targeting. sakuretsu armor is
easier to obtain than widespread. the con about
widespread is its hard to obtain. you can get
widespread in championship pack game three or as a
promo from i believe a game boy yu-gi-oh game. you
can buy champion packs from your local card dealer.
it is not that hard to obtain from a champion pack.
the second con is it kills the highest atk. monster.
it can be seen as a con, but it is also seen as a
pro because it doesnt target. example: opponent has
cyber dragon and don zaloog. you only have a face
down widespread ruin. you have 8000 LP. opponent
attacks widespread ruin kills cyber dragon and
leaves don zaloog to hit you. even though it is less
attack you. you lose 1500 LP but the card that you
discarded was going to save you. this doesnt happen
very often, but sometimes youd rather be hit with
the higher attacking monster than the lower one just
because of its effect. another example: you have
only facedown widespread ruin. you have 2300 LP
opponent has wildheart and keeper's spy. cant kill
wildheart, therefore you get damage of 2300. you
lose. the con of sakuretsu armor. Example: opponent
has cyber phoenix and cyber end. you have face down
sak armor and face down def. lets say a keeper's
spy. cant use sak armor to kill cyber end.
and then so on.
so i think it is up to your choice on whether which
card you would rather use. i would rather use
widespread ruin than sak. armor, but really it is up
to your decision. or maybe you can run both.
