Snipe Hunter

This card will be seen in our metagame fairly often for a short while, but that doesn't mean it's great.

The effect is balanced, but from what we've learned so far from playing YGO, people play broken cards, not balanced ones. Its 1500 ATK is at the highest it can be and still be searchable by Tomato/Will, and the Dark type is well supported in general.

On to the effect...

What most players need to understand is that a 2/3 chance of destroying a card is NOT a 100% chance of destroying a card. You WILL end up needing his effect, discarding, and rolling a 6, discarding again and rolling a 1...it's good in a lot of situations, but only if you can get the rolls for it.

I see this being sided a lot more than maindecked, and I predict that at least one person will get caught cheating with a die loaded so that it won't land on 1 or 6.


Sniper Hunter:
It is killing me through the power of numbers. Oh, I am so scared.

Actually, I quite like this guy. A fairly decent 1500 ATK, Fiend is a reasonably supported type, easily searched with Tomato and Sangan, and a 1-4-1 destruction effect that can target anything multiple times in a turn. It's only problem is that this only works 2 times in 3, so occassionally you will lose your card.

As such, this is a good enabler, something to try and clear the board in the end game, and Fiend decks would love one or two of these around.

Traditional: 2.5/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

Share and enjoy,

Snipe hunter

rolling a dice is the part that gets me. Only 2/6 chance that it will be a minus one. Still, the fact it requires a discard and most decks do not build advantage with cards like thunder dragon and sonic bird to take advantage of this effect, means that it needs a specialty deck to be truly devastating. 2.5/5 in a deck not dedicated to taking advantage of its effect.
