Inmato, appropriately named as we have some mutant tomato who has obviously taken on human form, and further more been imprisoned...for what, I can only begin to guess....We have a Level 3 Plant type monster with 1400 attack and 800 defense.

 

Now, despite being an imprisoned genetically altered or possibly mutated vegetable, Inmato has a rather useful ability.  When a Plant-type monster (aside from itself) is targeted by the effect of a Magic or Trap card your opponent controls, you can tribute this card to Draw two cards.

 

This I like...and then I don't...and then I almost like it again. 

Drawing cards is good, tributing a monster to Draw two cards is great...you don't negate and/or destroy the Magic or Trap in question, but still. 

 

The problem I see here is what's going to stop your opponent from simply destroying this card to prevent you from obtaining the ability? 

We are only looking at 1400 attack and 800 defense...it's nothing game-breaking, but still a neat trick if you can pull it off.

 

Ratings:  

 

Traditional:  1.25/5

 

Advanced:   2.25/5

 

Art:  3/5  I'm honestly not sure if I like it or hate it, but I like and hate aspects of it, so just average.

General Zorpa Inmato

Yay! They remade Mystic Tomato. Too bad this guy is not even as strong as his Mystic counterpart. We have a level 3 1400 ATK DARK Plant. That is already alright, as the existing Plant support can use him to the fullest. 1400 ATK is a little low for the deck, but not really anything major.

The effect is when a Plant monster other than himself is targeted by an effect, you can tribute him in order to draw 2 cards. The effect is actually rather meh. You cannot trigger it yourself, so there is no way to even get a draw loop going with Fragrance Storm or something like that. As your other plant would probably be destroyed as well, you leave yourself open, and that is not good.

Ideally you will have some Tokens out with this guy, but that is not necessarily going to happen. Plants are an Aggro Control deck, so they will not want to be setting up sub par combos when they have things like Gigaplant and Tytannial to abuse. I

f this guy NEGATED the effect and drew you 1 card, it would be at 3 and in every single Plant deck. As it is, he is still waiting sorrowfully in his cage, never to be let out.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-1/5

Sorry I missed yesterday ... just got back from a weekend trip to Italy ... yeah, u know how I do ...

anywho ... enough of my garbage ... on to more interesting stuff ...

Inmato ...

And this little guy IS kinda interesting ... almost on the level of GOOD! ... first off - his stats. Everyone loves the Dark attribute. It's always a plus. 1400 ATK gives him that perfect combination of being able to fight if it has to and being searchable by anything that would do any searching. And every level less than 4 that all these stats are tied to make the monster all the more better.

He's also a Plant type so he'll have a lot of support these days and it'll be easy to find him a home. But does his effect warrant one? ... Well if another plant type is targeted by an effect - u can tribute Inmato to draw 2 cards. Everybody loves Draw Engines. They always will in this game. So anything that tributes 1 to get 2 is usually worth a try. But Inmato's flaw comes with the wording that seemed very much intentional. "Another" plant type monster. That means it wont work if HE is targeted. 9 times out of 10 - a targeting effect by your opponent will either bounce, destroy, or remove a card from play. So for them to do that to one of your monsters - u will then lose Inmato as well in order to draw 2 cards. Suddenly your 2 for 1 is now a 2 for 2 ... not as delicious anymore, is it? :( Giving up field presence for hand ...
Well it might not be a bad thing entirely ... whatever your opponent will targeting is most likely a much bigger threat than Inmato, so he wouldnt be much good to u afterwards anyway ... Probably a good deal afterall - to sack him to get 2 new cards. Plus Dark monsters in the graveyard can often lead to good things down the line ...

I kinda dig what he's about ... and I'm positive there's a sick combo in there just BEGGING to be unleashed with him at the core ...

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

Inmato, lets first take a good look at this card. When a Plant-Type monster is targeted other than Inmato by an opponents effect, you can tribute Inmato to draw 2 cards. Currently I dont see many cards that target except for these: Blackwing - Gale the Whirlwind, Mind Control, Brain Control, Gladiator Beast Murmillo, Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter. There are probably more that I have forgotten but when you think about it, Inmato really isn't worth it. It'd be more worth it if it activated when it was targeted.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1/5

I don't play plants but I guess that would be good for em you negate a spell or trap and draw 2 cards thats not bad. On another note now we get to see what Mystic Tomato might look like if he had a body and it's clever name with it's picture.
