Actually I was going to post last night, about an hour after I posted that I wanted 1 more. But I had to go and couldn't post the reply because it is so long. Anyway, here is the grading/results:
Dimension Twister - Xecian
This card may be special summoned from your hand by removing 2 cards from the game with D.D. in their name from your hand or field [to where, the graveyard or RFG?]. This card's attack(ATK) and defense (DEF) is equal to 300 for every card in your RFG, or 700 if that card has D.D. in its name (generally that sentence could be worded better). When this card is destroyed, you may special summon it at your next stand-by phase by moving 2 cards with D.D. in their name from your RFG to the graveyard. (As long as this card remains face-up on the feild) At your end phase, both players must declare the name of a card. If the declared card is in the opponent of the calling player's hand. deck or graveyard, it is RFG (You never specify who gets to search whom's deck to verify such). If the card was in their hand, they take 700 points of damage. If it is not present, remove 1 random card in your hand from play. At your end phase you take 500 damage for each card in your RFG.
Hmm, some minor wording issues, especially the second sentence. I'll correct that:
Dimension Twister - Xecian
You may special summon this card by removing from play 2 cards with "D.D" or "Different Dimension" in their name in your hand. When this card is destroyed, you may special summon it duirng your following stand-by phase by moving 2 cards with "D.D" or "Different Dimension" in their name from your remove from game pile to your graveyard. If this card is face-up during your end phase, both players must decalre the name of 1 card; if the declared card exists in the opposing player's hand, deck, or graveyard immediately remove it from play (the owner of this card decalres first). In addition, if the declared card removed from play was in the opposing player's hand, this card inflicts 700 points of damage to that player; if it wasn't, remove 1 random card in your hand from play. During your end phase, this card inflicts 500 points of damage to it's controller for each card in the controller's remove from game pile. This card's ATK and DEF is the amount of cards in the controller's remove from game pile x 300; this card gains an additional 400 ATK for every card in that same remove from pile that includes "D.D." or "Different Dimension" in their name.
Personally, this card is alot to grasp. And I find it to be too complicated, and too much going on for just one
card in play. Since the whore would just be used for each player to bark out commonly used staples and it would be an RFG-a-thon. That seems to be what the card would be abused most for. The hand disrupt part seems just tacked-on.
during your stand-by phase select one card at random from your opponent hand. [Your opponent then reveals the card] if it is a monster [card, this card inflicts]damage equal to the level of that monster x300.
Hm, it's definately interesting. RoTA-able, fast, and could inflict a possible 1200 if luck is on your side. Certainly could have potential, but the effect just somewhat bores me. ;P
Mizpel the Clairvoyant
Dark / Spellcaster
600 ATK / 2100 DEF
Effect: When this monster comes into play (That comment confuses me, a card "comes into play" once it's on the feild, whether it's summoned, or fliped-face-up or both?), look at your opponent's hand. During each of your draw phases, you may skip it to look at your opponent's hand and [all] his/her face-down cards. If there are more spell and traps in his/her hand than monsters, inflict 500 damage to your opponent's LP. Otherwise, select 1 monster card in his/her hand and your opponent shuffles it back to his/her deck. When this monster leaves play, inflict 500 damage to your opponent's LP.
Your wording on "During each of your draw phases, ..." is iffy, that indicates you're in your draw phase, if you're in your draw phase, you cannot skip it. Something to the effect of "You may skip your draw phase in order for your opponent to reveal their hand" would do. Not bad. Though the 2100 DEF may be going to far. Even Berserk and Cyber Dragon can't ram it out of the way? Isn't that somewhat imbalanced?
Effect: as long as this card remains face up on the field once per turn you may take control of up to 3 dragons [Dragon-type monsters] a turn and sacrifice [tribute] tem to add there attack points to your life points and to this monstes attack points. [increase your life points and the ATK of this card by an amount equal to the sum of the tributed monster's ATK]
Wrong theme. However if the card were comboed with "DNA Surgery" then you could possibly have something. But that doesn't negate how clicheic, dull, and "done-before" the effect is.
omet The Outlaw
ATK: 1000, DEF: 1900
Effect: FLIP: Look at your opponent's hand, then inflict Direct Damage to your opponent's Life Points equal to the number of combined Monster Level Stars in their hand x200 points. Also, when this card inflicts Battle Damage to your opponent's Life Points, discard 1 card from the top of your opponent's Deck to the Graveyard.
Not bad. The first card so far that doesn't have wording issues. Definately a plus. No need for me to comment on this one, it's straight-foward and would definately see playability. Though the 1900 DEF somewhat worries me, in advanced v3 format, most things attacking are averaging 1400-1700, lowering the DEF is my only concern. ;0
Grent, the Swelling Mass
As long as this card remains face-up on your side of the field, your opponent must continue to show you his hand. If there is a Monster Card in their hand during your Standby Phase, they gain 500 Lifepoints, and 1 Spell Counter is placed on this card. For each Spell counter on this card, increase this card's ATK and DEF by 300 points. When this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard by an opponent's card effect or as a result of battle, your opponent must discard their hand.
So close! The fact that I can just summon suicide in battle at a cost of what ... 800-1200 life points for them to discard THEIR ENTIRE HAND?! That could be a +5 advantage at a cost of less than 1/8th of your LP? That's insane, and broken. The concept works well if you minus the "or as a result of battle," then you have a winner.
The Great Assassin
If this card is successfully Normal Summoned, you may look at your opponent's hand. If there are more than 3 magic cards in his/her hand, you may destroy every card on your opponents field. If you destroy any monsters on your opponent's side of the field, this monster gains 500 defence Increase the DEF of this card by the number of monsters destroyed by this card's effect x 500. foe every monster you destroy.
"Secret Rare" won't make me go easy on how broken this card could be. "Imperial Order" was secret rare and I know a huge chunk of the world had their copies. This card is broken, period. Searchable via "Reinforcement of the Army" plus a pre-knowing of their hand via "Confiscation" or whatever and boom, entire feild destroyed? Broken! That alone is enough, but the DEF adding just isn't neccassary.
Hero Of Ragnarok
ATK 3000 DEF 2500
This card is only 1 tribute if you tribute a Light attribute monster . When this card is Summoned destroy all Dark attribute, fiend and zombie type monsters on the field and in your opponents hand. Pay 500 Life points to increase this monsters ATK by 500 per monster destroyed.
I'm just best off completely rewording the card:
Hero Of Ragnarok
ATK/ 3000 DEF/ 2500
You may lower the level of this card by 2 if you use 1 LIGHT monster as your tribute to tribute summon this card. When this card is summoned, immediately destroy all DARK attribute monsters on your opponent's side of the feild and in their hand; in addition destroy any Fiend and Zombie-type monsters on your opponent's side of the feild and in their hand. Pay 500 Life points to increase this monsters ATK by 500 per monster destroyed due to this card's effect.
There should be a consequence of lowering the ATK of the card if you do the single-tribute effect. Because simply sacking a D.D.W.L. / whatever for a 3000 ATK monster alone is broken. Further more, this effect actually has very little hand disrupt; you never get to see your opponent's hand since you didn't say "reveal." Further more, this card just seems like the new tribute beat-stick in Chaos decks/LIGHT rush decks. =\
» The Results!
3rd - omet The Outlaw (One of the few cards that didn't have wording issues. Awesome effect, yet the sky high DEF somewhat scares me since it would be abused possibly too much like Cyber Dragon)
2nd - Grent, the Swelling Mass (To be honest, this card would've won first place if he hadn't put "as a result as battle" as well as card effects that trigger the discarding hand effect. Because the card has so much potential and I would look forward to trying it, but for the giant loop hole and possible +5 advantage, 2nd place.)
1st - Mizpel the Clairvoyant (Outside the 2100 DEF, which I would rather it be 1850-1900, this card is very interesting. The skipping the draw phase serves as an excellent cost, since it ends up being either -1 advantage for you, or inflict 500 plus all their cards revealed. Plus the finally destroy effect, not bad!)
So, obviously the winner is j3tm@verick!
And no, I'm not trying to tag-team with him hogging the leader-position. TheLaughingMan-JDS was, like, VERY close to winning. Better luck next time everyone. Alright, take it away with the next theme j3tm@verick.
