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

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
