Change of Heart's replacement post-ban, a nice ally
with it right now. This card has a LOT of potential
and it's pretty obvious as to why.
You either use it to stop an attack or get something
ready to be killed at no cost...or you give up a
monster and borrow one of theirs. With all the
Trample that's seeing play, shifting something to
Defense in the form of a Quick-Play Spell is pretty
Imagine the evilness if you use Change of Heart or
Snatch Steal to take one of their monsters, and
sacrifice that through Enemy Controller, Wicked, no?
I don't know this card's full potential yet -- I'm
fairly sure there's a combo I missed. Hopefully, the
other CotD guys will cover me today. Besides...I've
taken up enough of your life with my first two CotDs
Thursday: Enemy Controller
Enemy Controller is another highly anticipated card
from Ancient Sanctuary. Now, the thing about it is
that it's really two cards: You have a watered-down
Book of Moon effect, and you have a watered-down
Change of Heart effect all in one (Quickplay) Magic.
The first effect is definitely useful; it can stop a
troublesome attacker and save your Life Points, or
it can just nuke Berserk Gorilla. You can also force
weaker monsters (like Sheep Tokens) into ATK to
pound on them.
The second is interesting...it's basically Change of
Heart, but you need to sacrifice a monster. This
works very well with Scapegoat or searchers like
Witch and Sangan; you either won't mind or WANT to
get rid of these monsters, and gaining an opponent's
monster for a turn can certainly be game-breaking
(that's why Change of Heart is being banned). Attack
with the monster you take, or sac it to Cannon
Soldier if it's troublesome. Very nice.
Granted, sometimes the second effect won't help you
at all (chances are you may not even be able to use
it), but then the first effect comes back into play.
This makes Enemy Controller a very versatile card.
Typical tournament deck: 3.5/5
Burn deck: 4/5
OVERALL RATING: 3.8/5
This is the new Change of Heart........kinda. It's a
quick-play, so it's chainable. It totally owns
Berserk Gorilla because of it's position changing
effect and can be a Waboku if you take your
opponent's biggest creature or only creature. The
position changing effect also helps trample decks.
This card has 2 abilities, but you can only choose
one. In order to take a creature, you must offer one
of your own. Not good, not good at all, because
you'll be left -1 field advantage at end of turn.
You can only change 1 creature's position, too. It's
an Ultra Rare, which makes it hard to find.
Overall, I give Enemy Controller a 5.9/10 Pre-Ban; a
