Yu-Gi-Oh Card Review: Maxx "C"

In storm of ragnarok, we got introduced to all the exclusives somewhat late in january. To be honest, the exclusives were not a disappointment. We can agree with cards like Chaos hunter, Vanadis of the nordic ascendant and Karakuri muso mdl 818 "Haipa", they are welcome additions into our game.

But personally, there is one that stands out the most, and thats Maxx "C".

Someone needs to clean their kitchen.

This little army of "C"s have united to become 500 attack and 200 defence. While that might not sound like much, you should never find a reason to summon it. For its amazing effect activates in the hand.

During either player's turn, you can discard this card. When you do, whenever your opponent summons a monster this turn after you have discarded, you draw 1 card. And to stop stacking, you cannot activate more than one each turn.

When i first read this card, i felt a little underwhelmed. I started thinking more and more if this card could be mained in most decks. but i took a step back and realised something:
Even If you get only one draw from it, you have replaced the discard.

This card is a +0 no matter what (unless you randomly discard it). But you should be activating this card against cards that special summon.

Im talking about:
- Debris dragon
- Lonefire Blossom
- Dandylion
- Frogs (Im looking at ronintoadin and fishborg blaster)
- Scrap chimera
- Level eater
- Dark armed dragon

Seriously, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't run this card. Most of the time, you might chain this to a card that special summons something, draw a card, and now your opponent has a tough decision to go into a synchro summon and let you +1, or leave it as it is.

But, this card can also be a dead draw, especially against gadget's, anti-meta decks and stun decks since they rarely special summon.

This card is incredibly versatile. Since you can activate it on either turn, it even works against their call of the haunted when you have just attacked. If you can get hold of one of these, or you pull one, KEEP IT. Like effect veiler, this card will get played more and more with age.

And that's that. Im seeing the price around $30 for now like some of the other exclusives, but it's so good its bound to go up.

And incase you didn't know, the "C" stands for cockroaches.
