Hello Pojo Fans,
That Grass Looks Greener is broken.
This is a less direct version of Painful Choice with
the potential for far more upside. You have more
cards in your deck than your opponent? Mill cards
until you are at even with your opponent. Simple,
easy to use, devastating in the right deck. With the
graveyard in such high demand in the meta, this card
fits well in so many decks. Any deck could run this
card if they favor getting cards into the grave.
Lightsworn, Shaddoll, and Burning Abyss especially
love this card. While it is useless until you have
more cards than your opponent in your deck, that
shouldn't be long if played correctly. If you are
sure you have more cards than your opponent (running
a 50-60 card deck) you can launch this first turn
and make a huge opening move. If you are running 60,
and face 40, and go first, you will be sending 20
cards at the minimum to the graveyard. That doesn't
count what your deck's intentions are. Shaddolls
could rally off one of each of their main monsters
effects, the same with Burning Abyss, or you could
be facing down several Judgment Dragons the next
turn. Paleozoics and Infernoids can fill their grave
with options as well with this card.
At 3, this card is dangerous, and it will be hit
eventually. It is too good not to.
Until Next Time
Such a simple card with unlimited potential. That
Grass Looks Greener is a Level Infinity Normal Spell
Card that has no cost but one condition. If you have
more cards in your Deck than your opponent, send the
difference from your Deck to the Graveyard. Those
cards are sent by effect and will trigger if able.
Other Spells and Traps that can be banished the same
turn they are sent to the grave can also be
activated. In an easy way, this plus Soul Charge in
your hand should be too much advantage for the
opponent to defeat. It's not even that expensive.
That Grass Looks Greener puts at the forefront what
many players already know, the Deck and the
Graveyard are equally important. Own three because
the potential of this card can only go up as more
deck types are created.
That Grass Looks Greener
Here we have one of the most recently released mill
like crazy cards, so crazy is it with the strength
of this effect (to mill) that 60 card Infernoid and
Lightsworn (the biggest winners to include this
card) become actually real options for competitive
play... Something that would otherwise be thought of
as dumb... Before the release of this card.
However, in order to actually use this card far more
effectively, you must use Left Arm Offering, since
if you are playing a 60 card deck, using Left Arm
Offering would increase your chance of obtaining
That Grass Looks Greener on your first turn from 1
card in 20 to effectively 1 card in 10.
While it may not be obvious to all, That Grass Looks
Greener also makes cards that have Graveyard effects
stronger, some noteable cards that benefit from it
are Fairy Tail - Snow, Galaxy Cyclone, Breakthrough
Skill, Eclipse Wyvern and as an oldie but classic
choice, Necro Gardna.
Rating: 4. Works really well in larger Decks, so
well above 40, this in turn creates its own sorts of
issues, but when That Grass Looks Greener works,
expect to send at least 20 cards to the Graveyard,
and due to this, winning becomes incredibly easier
for those Decks now and in the future that stand to
benefit from such a card as this.
