Hello Pojo Fans,

Short week this week, finishing up with an older card: Needlebug Nest.

Sending cards of yours to the graveyard can help accelerate your decks intentions. Shaddolls, Lightsworn, Bujin, Infernoid, and back in the day Magical Explosion and Dragon Ruler decks thrived by doing this. Five cards is 1/8 of your deck at the very minimum sent in one move from one card, that's a good amount of cards. This card along with Fiend Comedian can send a good amount of your deck to the grave and stack effects in one turn.

It is a trap card, so it is slower than other cards that may help you do the same kind of thing. Also, it is the next five cards off the top of your deck rather than directly choosing the five cards. Random can work in your favor, but cards that have the power to select can better your situation because you can directly combo with them rather than get lucky. In Shaddoll decks the likelihood of hitting cards that will activate off of this card are pretty good, but you still have to set the trap, then activate it. Your card in vulnerable in that moment and that is what makes this a card that may not find itself in the decklist for many decks that could use it.

More cards are direct, have more control, but involve less cards in their effect. This card hits 5 cards, but you have to set it, those cards are the top five off the top of your deck, and you don't select the cards going to the grave. You decide: control vs amount.


Until Next Time



Well this card is simple. Needlebug Nest is a Normal Trap with no cost and one effect. Set it and activate it to Send the top 5 cards from your Deck to your Graveyard. That's it. No grave activations, and completely chainable. It is highly unpredictable. You could accidentally send cards you don't want to send to the grave. Or you could send multiple copies of the same card and only get one activation. It's a gamble. Try one in Burning Abyss or Lightsworn.
Score: 3/5

There are polarizing cards, and then there's Needlebug Nest. Seriously, unless your deck is one of the many "mill to win" types out there, why would you even bother looking at this card? It would be one thing to want to force your opponent to draw out, but drawing yourself out is risky business. Thankfully, there are plenty of mill deck types to choose from nowadays, so this card isn't exactly useless. Just to name a few: there's Lightsworn, Uria, Dragon Rulers, Sylvan, Dark World, Bujin, Wight.... Did I miss any? Yeah, I probably did, but you get the idea.
There is literally nothing else to say. Needlebug Nest gets a solid...
Score: 5/5, Mill decks only
