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.
