Oh, how I miss you so, TER...
This card used to be the defining monster of our
metagame 6 months ago. Now, it's just a
throw-in in a trade, a crappy super people are
trying to get rid of, etc.
Thousand-Eyes Restrict just can't function
consistently in today's metagame. Metamorphosis
is restricted to 1, Scapegoat is restrited to 1,
and most unthinkable, Thousand-Eyes Restrict is
restricted to 1 itself. Who ever heard of
limiting a Fusion? If he was limited and
Metamorphosis wasn't, he'd still actually see
play. There are many great Fusions that can be
Morphed out other than TER, but given only one
Morph, the "Morph deck" can't exist.
Besides, with all the 1:1s we're seeing (I can
think of at least 9 1:1s and 3 power cards that
can screw over TER either upon summon, attack,
or on the opponent's turn), it wouldn't last
The ban list will tell us whether this card will
see play in the future.
Today we look at a card from a deck that got
severely hurt by the latest Ban/Restricted list
update. Restricting Morph nerely crippled the
playability of Thousand-Eye Restrict. Is he any good
Thousand Eye Restrict
"Relinquished" + "Thousand-Eyes Idol"
As long as this card remains face-up on the field,
other monsters cannot change their positions or
attack. This monster can take on the ATK and DEF of
1 opponent's monster on the field (a face-down
monster results in an ATK and DEF of 0). Treat the
selected monster as an Equip Magic Card and use it
to equip "Thousand-Eyes Restrict". You may use this
effect only once per turn and can equip
with only 1 monster at a time.
First, anyone who can successfully Fusion summon
this without Morph, and keeps it on the field more
than a turn, should win just for that.
Secondly, yes, Thousand Eye Restrict IS still good.
Just because you only have one morph, doesn't mean
he's dead. He's just got a foot or two in the grave.
If you can get him out and keep him out for even
just a few turns, you've more than likely got the
game in the bag.
The fact Magician of Faith was also Restricted gave
everyone else who ran the deck two less monsters to
morph, but oh well.
5/5 for whatever can be salvaged of its own Morph
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
The single most powerful fusion monster in the game
Thousand Eyes Restrict
Our FINAL card of the day this week is Thousand Eyes
Thousand eyes restrict doesnt see alot of playing,
and its not because its not good. Its because when
UDE/Konami/Whoever "Fixed" the game of Yugioh, they
took away Morph, and left us with just one. For some
Tons of complext rule problems with this card, Ill
answer some of the most common.
If I "Suck up" a Sangan with TER, and then TER goes
to the grave, does Sangan? Yes.
It says once per turn I can use its effect, on turn
1 I use his effect, I suck up a DDA, on turn two,
can I put DDA into the graveyard and Suck up a new
monster for that turn? No.
Basically, great card, yada yada yada, dont really
need to worry about it this format ;[.
Oh, and I am going to be at the Mobile, Alabama
regional tomorrow. This is my first event in over 6
months, and I will be there with a grey Pojo.com t
shirt on, you can only get these shirts as a writer,
so I won't be hard to find. Don't hesitate to come
up to me and start up a conversation ;p.
Thousand Eyes Restrict:
TER has always been good, after all , it does have
the most powerful effect EVER !!!At least, in y
This was the god of last format, with goat control
popping up all over the place but now this, along
with Metamorphosis and my beloved goats are
restricted to one, and its more likely than not that
you aren’t going to fusion summon this guys, shame
Traditional : 1/5 The restrictions hurt this deck
even in this format
Advanced : 2/5 Slightly more playability, but still
not so good.
Art : 4/5 - Awesome
Its a fusion, why not use it?
Well, since we can't use Morph effectively, this guy
becomes harder to use. The fusion parts are crud, so
I doubt you'll be seeing a deck centred around this
guy until morph comes back, or we get an
alternative. As such, if you can find a way to
return to the hayday of the Tsuki-Restrict lock,
you'll be winning yourself lots of prizes, but I
doubt its gonna happen.
Advanced: 2/5 (rated for use in deck building. It's
still a fusion, so until SOI comes out there's no
And what do you think of this as a Morph subsitute?
Special Summon 1 Fusion Monster from your Fusion
Deck to your side of the field. That monster may not
be Tributed in a Tribute Summon or by an effect you
control and cannot attack during this turn. If the
monster is removed from the field, return it to your
Fusion Deck and discard 2 cards from your hand.
