And here we see that the new alphabet monsters still suck.

XY, YZ, XZ, and XYZ let you discard cards to destroy cards, whether it be face-ups, face-downs, S/Ts, or anything at all, but what do you get for your discard with VW? A battle position change. So essentially we have a card that lets you turn any card into your hand into an Enemy Controller. Which can help, because his 2000 ATK can handle the DEF but not the ATK of some often-played monsters (Cyber Dragon, Mobius).

The problem is that this isn't even a 1:1 unless you KNOW you're going to kill the monster and wouldn't otherwise, or you're targeting Reaper (which is a possibility) or Gorilla (which I doubt you'd see right now.) In order to justify playing two cards in combination, you should gain back those two cards in advantage elsewhere. This doesn't do that.

Cards like this are never going to see the play the original creators had intended, given what we have now. ...actually, I don't think any of the alphabet monsters are EVER going to see play no matter WHAT gets restricted but maybe that's just me.

1/5 all.

FUSION: “V-Tiger Jet”+ “W-Wing Catapult”/This card can only be Special Summoned from your Fusion Deck by removing from play the above cards on your side of the field. (You do not use “Polymerization”) By discarding
1 card from your hand, change the battle position of 1 monster on your opponent’s side of the field. (Flip Effects are not activated at this
time)

Today we come to a Fusion, VW-Tiger Catapult, the weakest of the fusions between those two monsters, or any two of the XYZ monsters with only 2000 attack. However, the ability to change the posistion of your opponent's monster in the Battle Phase is in a word...sweetness.

Furthermore, for a little added protection, if you activate this effect, the flip effect of the monster (if one) does NOT apply. Of course keep in mind like any XYZ monster that this requires you to have a card to discard in order to activate the effect.

Ratings:

4/5 anywhere in its own deck, as it's completely necessary
4.5/5 anywhere in its VWXYZ Dragon Catapult Cannon deck

Art: 3/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Hm, changing battle positions is stupid in this format. Its too hard to get out. Use a better fusion like Gatling ;p.

1/5 all formats

VW Tiger Catapult

Of all the VWXYZ, this is my least favourite. Battle position change for a cost is nothing compared to destroying the card

The VW cards made the XYZ deck more unstable than it already was, and I don’t really welcome them as an addition , although V tiger get does look cool its unreachable, and although the catapult is , it can only unionise with the jet.

1/5 Traditional - Nope

1.5/5 Advanced - It could happen

Art : 3,5/5 - Not bad.
