This guy is the Krebons of the plant World. 1200 ATK
and an Earth Plant are pretty good for stats. He
doesn't have the highest ATK for a level 2, and
PLants have their own great support, so really no
He is a Tuner, so you will often be using him for a
Synchro Summon and not for beating face, but he can
actually do that quite well. His effect is where he
earns a lot of his keep. Other Plants seem to like
him a bunch, and if he were to die, you can destroy
another one instead of him.
A mediocre effect and decent stats get him the best
Tuner of the Plant type, but since only Copy Plant
comes close, it is really a no-brainer. This is the
Tuner of choice for Plants, so if you are in Plants
and want to Synchro, use him. If you dont have
Plants, use Psychics and Plaguespreader, they are
just better right now.
N o V a
Well heres Nettles, the weed that could. Searchable
thanks to Lonefire Blossom and a level two monster
instead of its tuner friend Copy Plant. Being a
level two tuner makes it easier for players to
summon out Queen of Thorns or Goyo Guardian, as well
tune with Gigaplant for a level eight Synchro
Monster like Stardust Dragon or Red Dragon
Like Copy Plant, Nettles has low stats but not as
low. Nettles has 1200 attack which means a Mirror
Wall or Shrink could save it, but most people dont
run such cards in a plant deck. So with Nettles
you'd want to Synchro Summon with it as fast as you
I'd use more of these over Copy Plant but both have
their ups and downs.
He’s got a funny name, huh? :)
Anywho … It’s a LITTLE better than Copy Plant …
sorta … right?
Well, let’s see! - A 2 Star Tuner monster … That
sounds about right. Level 2 is a comfortable level
for Tuners to have. They mix well the Level 4’s to
make Goyo, as well as the standard level 6 Tribute
monsters to make the Super Dragons. He’s Earth
attribute which is nice and suitable for a Plant
type monster too. He’s even got a little bit of
respectable firepower (1200 ATK) for his level, if
need be. So these are all good things.
But Nettles here is a selfish and self-serving
little guy, sacrificing another plant u control in
order to save himself from destruction. It’s not as
nice as Krebon’s attack negation, but it’s still
useful, especially for Plant decks that can
manufacture little plant token-thingies very easily,
and create a bunch of weird (but cool) combos that
aren’t coming to mind right now.
He fits very well into a Plant deck … and … yeah.
He’s better than Copy Plant.
Effect (Continuous/Tuner/Trigger )
this face-up card would be destroyed, you can
destroy 1 face-up Plant-Type monster you control
let me say I am no expert on the plants or the deck.
card should be played in a plant decks no matter
what version what you are playing. But I have
not seen one that could stand up to
Lightsworn,Gladiator Beast and the new TeleDad but
if you do try it then good luck.
