Rescue Cat

Yay, an OTK Kevin Tewart hasn't butchered by restricting a key card yet!

A lot of people don't know about this one turn win possibility yet as it hasn't seen a heck of a lot of play. But let me run through it with you.

1. Make sure the opponent has no S/Ts down (Giant Trunade; Heavy Storm)
2. Make sure the opponent has no monsters on the field (or only one weak DEF monster, like a Magician of Faith or Sangan.)
3. Play Rescue Cat to the field.
4. Activate Last Will.
5. Rescue Cat #1 goes to the Graveyard, letting you get 2 Milus Radiants.
6. Last Will triggers. Get another Rescue Cat.
7. Tribute that Rescue Cat for a third Milus Radiant and a strong Beast (most likely Des Wombat -- if they have that one weak defender, then pull Gyaku-Gire Panda instead.)

You have 1800 + 1800 + 1800 + 3100 on the field. If attacking directly this is enough to win the game. If you pulled Gyaku and they only have one monster, you have 1800 + 1800 + 1800 + a 2800 Trampler. If the opponent's monster's DEF is 1200 or less, this is also enough to win the game.

Hopefully this one starts to see some play again. I'd love to see a One Turn Kill take a Shonen Jump or something.

2/5 Traditional (we have Scientist here, which is more stable)
4/5 Advanced (for being a OTK)

Coin Flip
Rescue Cat would have been much better suited if it were closer to or before Christmas. I mean, it's adorable and it's pretty close to a Christmas card. Some people actually get pets as Christmas presents.
Heck, the cat you see in the picture over there is the surviving daughter of a Christmas present many years ago. She's also DAMNED good at YGO! Guess what deck she plays. That's right, the "lay down on the opponent's cards so they can't use them" deck. She uses a similar tactic for chess and backgammon. I imagine it's because she has no opposable thumbs.

Rescue Cat is pretty unsplashable, but it's a good card. It gets low-level Beast monsters. Something to keep in mind is that if you only have one (or zero) in your deck, you can't pull it out since you have to pull out exactly two. Heck, there's a OTK built around this card.

Basically, you need a Gaia Power (possibly decorated with Christmas lights), a Last Will, a Rescue Cat, and possibly an Enraged Battle Ox.
You activate Last Will, then Gaia Power. You play Rescue Cat and activate the fuzzy wuzzy adorable's effect. It dies, unfortunately, but it brings out two puppies. 2 Milus Radiant, actually. Then you use Last Will's effect and pull out, GASP, another Rescue Cat. Its noble sacrifice brings out another puppy (PUPPY!) and then you can go for the perfect match to three puppies. Yup. A Panda. A Gyaku-Gire Panda. With Gaia Power and the effect of three Milus Radiants stacking up…

Well, since you have AT LEAST four beasts on the field, all of which are also EARTH monsters, you're looking at four monsters with a 2000 ATK boost. Remind me again what 4x2000 is? Yeah, your starting life.
8000. One of them has Piercing/trample. That's not even counting their base ATK values...

The trouble is that it requires buildup and a clear field… Which is easily provided by a Giant Trunade. Oh, and if you happen to have Enraged Battle Ox (an optional part of the combo) out, you just boosted his ATK by 2000 to 3700. But he is a kind person and returns gifts of 2000 ATK with Piercing Battle Damage/trample for your other four monsters.

TRY THIS DECK. If you think you might have fun playing Dark Necrofear or Strike Ninja or something, shut up and sit down. This deck will BLOW YOU AWAY with its sheer fun factor. There are a lot of jokes you can make with the deck...

Of course, you could also put it in Exodia with three 3-Hump Lacoodas ("Chris! That's a terrible word! Hump.")* and then attempt to use some crazy drawpower, but it doesn't seem viable, y'know? Just stick with One Turn Kills.

General: 1.2/5 (there is a small chance you might be able to fetch Nimble Momongas with this) OTK based around it: 9/5

* - props if you caught the Family Guy reference
dawnyoshi “It's a OTK and it's FUZZY WUZZY ADORABLE.” –Coin Flip

CF said that if we told anyone that he said that, we would die. I guess I’m not going to any Socal Yu-Gi-Oh events any time soon…

That quote pretty much describes what Rescue Cat is. You summon the adorable fuzzy kitten, you sacrifice it, and you get two more fuzzy creatures in its place. It’s free advantage for one turn, it can combo with dumb and horrible cards like Three-Hump Lacooda, and it provides a strong basis of field and card advantage with Nimble Momonga and Hyena. More important, it allows you to win in one turn when combined with Last Will. Aren’t Gyaku-Gire Pandas and Milus Radiants silly cards? Of course, this win condition is far from stable in an environment with few sheep tokens, especially when a search function to summon Rescue Cat, Giant Rat, is easily nerfed by cards such as Smashing Ground. Oh well. It’s certainly fun! It’s also completely useless in traditional, since you’ll just die to the other more efficient FTKs…or to Dark World. Mirage of Nightmare and Graceful Charity are so stupid.

Advanced: 2.5/5
Traditional: 1/5

Dark Paladin
As our week continues, we come to the adorable looking Rescue Cat.
Now, take about 7 seconds to admire the cute little picture, ok?

Now, aside from the One Turn Kill that you all should be completely aware of, Rescue Cat, simply put, is crap. The effect doesn't make for anything good and it's just a waste.


1.5/5 all
4.5/5 It's own OTK though

Art: 4.5/5 so adorable

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
