Effect: Activate this card by targeting 1 face-up "Duston" monster you control. This turn, the first card effect your opponent activates becomes "Destroy 1 target 'Duston' monster your opponent controls." If your selected target is destroyed by this effect, Special Summon this card as a Normal Monster (Fiend-Type/EARTH/Level 1/ ATK 0/ DEF 1000) to your opponent's field. (This card is NOT treated as a Trap card.) If Summoned this way, it can not be Tributed or be used as Material for Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Summons.
The goal with that is to serve the purpose of more consistency while also fitting the theme of Diamond Duston (in name and effect). Also it can help slow down combos which is always a plus in a stall deck.
Too easy to play around for not being continuous. If you want it to be a trap, this would make a bit more sense:
Activate this card by targeting 1 face-up "Duston" monster you control when your opponent activates a card or effect: That effect becomes "Target 1 "Duston" monster your opponent controls: Destroy it." If your selected target is destroyed by this effect, Special Summon this card as a Normal Monster (Fiend-Type/EARTH/Level 1/ ATK 0/ DEF 1000) to your opponent's field. (This card is NOT treated as a Trap card.) If Summoned this way, it can not be Tributed or be used as Material for Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Summons.
I do like the idea of it being a trap monster like Diamond Duston.
These two allow for an unprecedentedly long and powerful loop/FTK. The point is to empty your deck, then repeatedly shuffle in the same 4-5 cards to force your opponent to draw (and discard) their whole deck. Even knowing what you're doing, it takes 30-45 minutes, effectively winning the match in a single game. With both of them limited it's infinitely less consistent. There's no good reason to let them be any higher.
While I hope and believe that most/all accusations made against these public figures is honest and true, the ability for even one accusation to ruin a career in just a day is... concerning. Yes, there's evidence for these allegations, there's corroboration to back up these accusations, these sources are credible; but what about next time? I fear people will begin catching on that people they dislike can be removed from power with the dial of a phone in a matter of hours. Maybe not literally removed from their position, but the public response is quantifiable and frighteningly powerful.
My sympathies go to any victims of such heinous crimes, not only for what they have gone through, but for how their credibility as victims is or may be tarnished by false accusers abusing the immediate and vindictive societal systems we have instituted.
Ideal situation is to have a large amount of lands on the battlefield, specifically the uncommon Deserts, achieved via Splendid Reclamation of cards milled with your own Ipnu Rivulet. Among those cards should be Dunes of the Dead. Using these, and a Ramunap Excavator to keep your engine online, you can control your opponent's creatures with Ifnir Deadlands, and with Hashep Oasis, make your Ramunap Hydra immense. In the event combat is not the most efficient method of winning, Torment of Hailfire offers a flashier win condition.
Hapatra's Mark protects your Excavator, and Hour of Promise and Shefet Monitor help to search out your land needs.
I'm considering Simic Nissa but am unsure, as blue is really just a splash for the Ipnu Rivulet, and I don't know what would be taken out for her.
Sideboard is also something that needs to be worked out, but I'm really bad at building sideboards.
