Some complain about HS reprinting the same effects over and over again. However, given that things like Kazakus and Raza are promoting highlander deckbuilding, some redundancy would be needed for consistency in getting cards that serve the same role.

 

Also it gives Priest something else to do T1.


In Topic: Rainbow Cog Gadget, because gadgets needed a boss so badly

Having the ability to be Summoned from the Deck bypasses the need to draw it, but when I'm devoting this many resources to the boss, I expect something impactful. The first two effects look sufficiently oppressive and can outright ruin someone's ability to play. But that's where its ease of access looks a little bit problematic - the god draw of 5 Gadgets (with the searching abilities in case of duplicates) means a lock from the very first turn with limited means of bypassing. With 4, it's still sufficiently obstructive though half the game plans nowadays involve effect monsters. The 6 effect is too impractical to bother working towards, while summoning it on 3 just gives you an effective 3000 vanilla; not the best investment.

 

I'd rather use Machina Fortress, really.

Non-targeting, non-destruction removal is a really strong asset, capable of dealing with nearly any kind of boss monster which comes with protection from one or the other nowadays. If that kind of effect was printed on a boss monster in itself or anything with summoning conditions, nobody would bat an eyelid. But on something that is easily Summoned and can remove up to 2 monsters on its own? That's a bit too strong. There will be no reason not to run it in any deck as a form of removal that's incredibly difficult to play around.

 

Dial down on the strength of the effect. I'd suggest keeping it only to an on-Summon effect and making it target.

If Albert is hit outright, it still wouldn't change the fact people can run Decks specifically TO search out Albert and only Albert.

Surely you haven't forgotten the Banner Sword decks of old where Maid Leader was used in a similar fashion? Yet I don't hear a complaint on that, and I predict this is due to Banner being just an okay card in the current environment. If Albert stops being ridiculous, then there won't be a need to nerf Maid Leader's tutoring ability.

If Albert's the problem, why not Albert himself rather than Maid Leader's tutoring ability?
