Maximum Crisis: “Spring” Into Action!

April 17th, 2017

Monster effects that can be used from the hand have played some pretty big roles in recent years. Cards like Effect Veiler and Maxx “C” have defined the modern era in a lot of ways, with some being so powerful that they had to be added to the Forbidden & Limited List. These cards have such a big impact because they operate in a unique way that’s nigh un-counterable and requires no set-up at all. Interacting with your opponent when you are forced to go second is one of the many reasons why these monsters are so good, and the fact that they are still useful after you’ve established your field makes them great when you get to go first as well. These monsters being concealed in your hand means your opponent can’t destroy them let alone predict you drew them, and this hidden information forces your opponent to always fear the possibility of you having an answer.

We have seen a lot of this type of monster fall in and out of popularity depending on the environment. Everything from Hanewata to Droll & Lock Bird has seen play as ways to answer particular popular strategies, with some others like D.D. Crow and Retaliating “C” being so well positioned against the whole field that they make their way into the Main Deck rather than just being a Side Deck tool. With the release of Maximum Crisis comes a new monster to join these ranks; one so powerful that it’ll definitely makes some waves: Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring. Read more…
