Fucking true, Norden didn't need to be hit. It and That Grass were pretty much just petty. Terrortop should have been banned, but I doubt it will see any play anyway.
I assume you have never heard of the Fusion Substitiute into +5 10 minute Zoo combo featuring Norden, cause frankly it was the nail in the coffin.
It's a shame Norden had to die, though tbh we all knew this old bastard had it coming. Rogues are just gonna switch to stuff like Rare Fish and Raidjin now if they still care about IF, but Zoos deserve nothing else anymore until their determined death date. This could have been avoided if Konami was aware about the stupidity of the Fusion Sub combo and looping Rat. "We're gonna bump down Rat to 2 because we don't want y'all to have easy 1 card combos, but we'll allow you to keep Norden so you can rely on Instant Fusion to get back that Rat k"?
Deck's still gonna be a pain in the ass as long as Rat, Broadbull and Drident exist. They might try to do shenanigans with stuff like Scorpio, BF, or Zephyros, but spiciness only leads to more easy counters.
Grass hit I'm pretty salty about though. I guess it was to level out the playing ground or just to make 60 card decks more fair? Still kinda is lame to remove Paleos and Infernoids out of the top meta pool after the narrowing of meta diversity here.
