I won’t go too deep into a monster that needs no
elaborate review. Souleating Oviraptor is absurdly
overpowered and a staple 3-of in any dinosaur deck.
It’s one of those few monsters that you just know
was made to launch a deck straight to tier 1. That’s
exactly what this is. It possesses multiple effects
that are a dream, and every duel consists of either
rejoicing when you have it or lamenting that you
don’t have one yet, even though it’s so easy to draw
Cards like Oviraptor normally make me angry. It’s so
mindless that anyone can drop it and go into huge
plays, even if you were to only search for the big
guys, which dinosaurs have a lot of. But his search
casts such a wide net, and since Fossil Dig can get
him from the deck, his presence is utterly
outrageous. And I like that for dinosaurs, even
though they were launched into the stratosphere in
an instant. And let’s not forget he can also search
for a Kaiju as an emergency button.
Busted card is busted. Not much else to say. I
expect it to be banned by the end of 2017 or early
2018, giving it the same life as the most busted
Monarch cards that preceded the dino structure deck.
Future Potential: 4/5
