Card Review : Trap Eater

Hey guys! Been awhile since the last update! And since [Crimson Crisis] has been released for around 2 weeks or so now, I guess its time for a new card review that we have not been doing for quite some time! Today's review will be on a card from [Crimson Crisis]! And it is the... [Trap Eater]!


[Trap Eater]
Attribute: Dark, Type: Demon
Effect Monster, Tuner, 4 stars
Atk 1900 / Def 1600
This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by sending 1 Face-Up trap card that your opponent controls to the graveyard.

Well seeing that there is almost no easy way to summon this card nor use it for a Synchro Summon... What good is this monster?! True that it is a level 4 monster with nice fighter stats of an attack strength of 1900 points and a defense strength of 1600 points... But still, there is almost no easy way to summon it out except by sending a face-up trap that your opponent controls to the graveyard! But however people! There are easy ways to summon this card out in our current meta! There are quite alot of [Meta Beat] decks that are packed with [Royal Oppression] or [Skill Drain], which makes those cards nice food for this little guy here to be summoned out!

So hmmm... Are there anymore good points about this card? Well there sure is! This card's attribute is a DARK attribute, which might make it attractive to be placed inside [Dark Armed Synchro] decks, since that deck is a deck that is afraid of the two above mentioned continuous trap cards and also [Dark Absorbing Mirror], this card might just make your deck flow easier and not be that afraid of the above mentioned!

Overall, this card may be powerful. But I would advise placing this card in the side deck first instead of straight away putting it into your main deck. You wouldn't know if your opponent will be playing powerful continuous traps till you get to test play with them! So it is better to be placed inside the side deck. Alright then! Till then to my next post! Goulian Signing Off~!

Edited: Thanks to DS for the slight note about the effect! I think I've totally gotten drunk while I was doing this review! LOL! Joking guys, well I promise no more mistakes will appear from the next post onwards!
