Wednesday - Steel Scorpion

I had no idea that this card even existed prior to checking on Apprentice.

Steel Scorpion is a really weak level 1 effect monster that reads: A non Machine-type Monster attacking "Steel Scorpion" will be destroyed at the End Phase of your opponent's 3rd turn after the attack.

It's not good. Period. Three turns? Come on. Most monsters don't last three turns anyway.

Do I really have to say anymore? Keep it in your shoebox.

Rating: 1/5

Wed- Steel Scorpion
 
Steel Scorpion? This guy is a Man Eater Bug wannabe. The stats arenít much better and he has to wait 3 turns to kill something. With Man Eater Bug, Fissure, Tribute to the Doomed, and Hane-Hane thereís really no need for more monster removal.
 
Rating: 1.3/5 ≠ It does stuff, therefor gets a 1.3.

Uhhh...what kind of pick is this?  Today's card is Steel Scorpion...
 
Ah, what kind of review can I do for this thing?  If you even CONSIDER playing this card, I have three words for you...
 
Man
 
Eater
 
Bug
 
If you play this card, you should resign immediately =/
 
Score:
I would give this thing the square root of negative infinity, but such a number does not exist, so Steel Scorpion gets a 1.0.  Sorry for the late review folks.

Wed - Steel Scorpion
Effect: Any non-machine monster attacking this card will be destroyed on the 3rd turn after it attacked
 
Fear this card for it is possibly the best card in the game... just kidding. Its quite useless unless it can be mastered and used with good effect. This monster is very weak, it can only ever be used for its effect and should never be used to attack without a lot of help. So how do you use this card well? As you can imagine, with 6 cards in hand and many monsters sitting in their deck, this wont scare many duelists at the start of the game and that is why it has to be saved up for later use.
 
If you can play this when they are drawing the remainder of their monsters then you will find steel scorption invaluable. Its an undercharged Man eater Bug some people say! - no, don't forget this is an active effect, it can be used over and over again providing you can keep it alive and healthy with the use of equipment cards and waboku.
 
It is essentialy a stall card, helping you to buy some time until you can get a working combo ready and you should never build a deck around the effect of this card but use it to aid the combos you need.
 
Advantages: after 3 turns they loose their attacking monster, nice.. but you have to make sure that its going to be applied to a card they cant tribute or one they will hate to do without.
 
Disdvantages: 3 turns is a long time, sure you can last will this card in, set it as a stall card but can 3 turns buy you enough time?
 
Useful combo cards: Swords of Revealing Light, gain the effect from one of their attacks and sit back to watch their monster die!.. Last Will, summon it in defence mode, shielding you from any direct attacks and possibly buying you some more time,... Waboku, allow them to attack and then keep your monster around for a second helping!
 
Example Play: Your both getting low on cards, you have this a SORL and a waboku in your hand. Play it as a set, allow them to attack with their Lagin or 7 fish and watch them get tearful when you flip the Waboku. Next turn, play a Swords of Revealing Light, watch their monster die knowing that even when your swords die, they cant attack your Scorpion without suffering the same penalty

Rating: 2/5
