Offering to the Snake Deity...an incredibly simple 2-for-2. You give up this card and a Reptile, and your opponent loses two cards they control...Monster, Magic, or Trap.

No rating today. Why? It belongs in a Snake Deck, or nowhere at all...which CAN be powerful, but again I ask, how many of those have you seen this Format...or ever?

Art: 3/5

Offering to the Snake Deity

Along the lines of Icarus Attack, this is a pretty standard theme deck 2 for 2. You give up a specific type of monster, and a trap, and you kill 2 cards. Like Icarus, it becomes a +1 if your opponent plays a removal card on it and you chain. It's a pretty good support card, but I doubt it will be enough to push reptiles from rogue to playable.

We can only wait and see if anyone does anything for it. Sorry for the short review, but this really is just a standard piece of 2-for-2 removal.

5/5 for the deck, 1/5 all else.

Well this card is just in the wrong vein. It is very much like Icarus Attack, except for the fact that it is for Reptile monsters. You destroy your reptile and you get to destroy two of your opponent's cards. This works very well with Vennominon and Vennominaga as you now have an alternative way to bring out the deity without waiting for your opponent to get rid of hom for you. Reptiles have been given a lot of help lately, and with beaters like Gagagigo and Alien Shocktrooper, a reptile normal deck is not out of the question. This is just one more thing that may nudge them into being competetive.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-3/5

Wednesday- Offering to the Snake Deity

Casual- This is basically a Icarus Attack for Reptiles. It is slightly better because it can work with Sinister Serpent in traditional, and various other token propagating devices. However, the card is not too good and actually has relatively uninspired design. Why share double destruction mechanics with Winged Beasts? What do Reptiles and Winged Beasts have in common?

Best case scenario- Sinister Serpent + Offering to the Snake Deity

Traditional- 3/5
Advanced- 2/5
