Scapekid

EARTH - Level 1 - Beast/Effect - 0 ATK/0 DEF

When you take battle damage: You can Special Summon this card from your hand, and if you do, Special Summon as many "Sheep Tokens" (Beast/EARTH/Level 1/ATK 0/DEF 0) in Defense Position as possible. They cannot be used as a material for the Special Summon of a monster unless you use this face-up card on the field as a material. You can only use this effect of “Scapekid” once per turn.

 

This is highly versatile. For 1, it doesn’t care about how many monsters you control, which is pretty spectacular. For 2, it doesn’t restrict all of your Special Summons for the turn, which probably sounds the alarms in your head. The next bit is to alleviate you of that tension.

 

For starters, if you activate it on your turn you’re forced to wait until the Main Phase 2, which means if you want more tokens you have to make less of an offense, which means your opponent gets a bit of a breather.

Second, you have to wait until after damage calculations to even activate the card, which means that if your opponent negates the attack or destroys the monster beforehand you just never get the chance (which is compounded on top of the prior weakness)

Third, if you activate it during your opponent’s turn, you can’t simply go with all your Link Shenanigans willy-nilly since they just can’t be used for Summons unless you use Scapekid as a Material.

FINALLY, IF THEY DESTROY SCAPEKID ALL OF THEM ARE ESSENTIALLY USELESS (edit: now for at least a turn)

 

So yeah the card itself is supposed to look REALLY GOOD but I tried to give a lot of ways for your opponent to play around it. Got the restriction idea from Contacting “C” and figured it could be used as a restriction for Special Summoning, so I simultaneously thought tokens and Scapegoat, so I looked up the term for a baby goat, which was just “kid”.

 

Hope you like the card, and I hope you put your thoughts below because tbh I'm not entirely sure of the balance of this card. Although the best part of posting late at night is that I can scapegoat the night instead of taking responsibility for the possible monster I created.

C'mon it's a cool card (at least I hope it is) I'm still testing on the Duel-Portal but it seems balanced at the moment.

They cannot be used as a material for the Special Summon of a monster unless you use this face-up card on the field as a material. 

 

But they *can* be Tributed for OBELISK THE TORMENTOR.

I'd rather play Scapegoat tbh, the risk of losing Scapekid and having a clogged field is pretty rough.

Make sure you follow the Advanced Clause, Polaris. (At least in terms of the word requirement, because you have a point about its usage).

 

Yeah, it's nice for providing Link fodder if you keep it alive, but I don't like this clogging the monster zones if Scapekid gets destroyed. I'm sure you've at least seen TCG vets say that Scapegoat is terrible for Link fodder multiple times (even if it does provide nice walls during the opponent's turn). Though, you did design this for DPF (which has no Konami cards / staples), so... The idea is nice, but yeah, the risk is too high; considering the removal options that exist right now and yeah, the field clogging sucks, even if you use this on your turn and wait to ladder. (Not like that Link 1 minds waiting though)

 

IDK, I would probably just change it to Special Summon just 1-2 Tokens and remove the restriction. Hard OPT is enough.

Yeah I don't think removing what makes the card unique is a good idea, since the point is that it gives you a lot of Tokens without being completely unable to use them for your Summons.

You might also consider that the opponent might rather just kill the monster you Summon with them instead.

Idk. I think the problem would be kinda solved if I either A. Add some more DEF to Scapekid or B. Make it so the Material condition is only until the end of the next turn so in long term you just do what you want with the tokens.

Either way I just wanted to promote Tribute Summoning and/or Destroy your own cards for advantage effects, so making it harder to take the easy way out for advantage keeps players thinking about how they can exploit the card. If possible I'd rather not take away the flavor and possible player interactions from the card.

 

EDIT: I did end up changing the card, but after I did it sucked so I changed it back.
