Puppet Plant vs. Six Samurai

"Puppet Plant"
Plant / Effect
By discarding this card from your hand to the Graveyard, take control of 1 face-up Warrior or Spellcaster-Type monster your opponent controls until the end of this turn.
ATK 1000 DEF 1000

I have the most bizarre feeling that this card may start seeing slots in the main deck. With the omnipresent and omnipotent Six Samurais becoming more and more prolific, this is the perfect time to capitalize off of our pseudo-"Brain Control". I'm certain you all know what "Brain Control" does and why it is currently forbidden. This is why I recommend this to anybody struggling against their Tier 0 match ups.

Of course, only main this if you intend to maximize the output this card allows you. Therefor, if you are not playing Synchro or Tribute monsters, you'd best find an alternative.

That said, this card is more generic than one would first assume.

I'm certain that everybody has had to stare down the throat of a daunting X-Saber field. This card may be your knight in shining armor, so to speak. X-Sabers are well known for leaving "XX-Saber Fulhelmknight" and "XX-Saber Pashuul" exposed under the assumption that they wont die. This is where you capitalize off of that critical error and place yourself in a very advantageous position.

Not only have you +1'd yourself, you have also left a huge gap in their defenses, allowing for massive game changing plays.

Essentially speaking, this card is equally as effective against X-Sabers as it is against Six Samurais.

Also, let's not forget about the strategic plays "Brain Control" offered. One can completely dominate and/or end the game by stealing your opponent's "Arcanite Magician", "Colossal Fighter", "Goyo Guardian" and who knows what else.

Dare I say it, this card is probably more effective than "Mind Control".

But of course, only time will tell.



  1. Nobody talks about how it takes spellcaster monsters (Gravekeeper's) me sad Q.Q

  2. Nobody talks about how it takes E Heroes, me sad Q.Q

  3. Nobody talks about how hard Valafar works to get everything in his posts, me sad Q.Q

    JK, you all can clearly see how versatile this card is and that's the point I'm trying to make. =P
