Trishula at 3?!

"Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier"
Dragon / Synchro / Effect
"1 Tuner + 2 or more Non-Tuners"
When this card is Synchro Summoned, you can active this effect to remove from play up to one card each from your opponent's hand, field and Graveyard. (The card in the hand is chosen at random.)
ATK 2700 DEF 2000

This bad boy just got released in the TCG in Duel Terminal 4. Currently, it is not legal for play. However, it will be released around April (just after the March Ban List). This guy is obviously going to have a huge effect on the metagame.

But that's not why I thought I'd draw attention to this guy. The main point I want to make is that "Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" is being released after the ban list. Now, knowing Konami like I do, I have a sickening feeling that this guy will be released at 3. My logic behind this comes from his brother in arms, "Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier". When Konami released Brio in the TCG, Brio was released at 3. Of course, it sold like wildfire due to how prolific Zombies were at the time. Brio survived a whole ban list untouched.

Many decks wont be able to spam this. Plant variants can produce 1, maybe 2 a game. However, there is 1 deck that is well known for being able to produce multiple level 9 synchros in one turn.

That deck is known as Infernity. We all know how debilitating the "Infernity Launcher" limit was, but I think the archetype has found salvation. Considering how easy this guy is to summon, I think the aforementioned limit becomes trivial.

Most players can take a hit from Trish, but 2 or 3 hits with this thing will kill you without question. There is the problem of "Solemn Warning" & Co, but most Infernity players these days use "Giant Trunade", "Trap Stun" and/or "Seven Tools of the Bandit" for such reasons.

If you guys have any Infernity stuff, I highly suggest you hold on to it.
