Ahh...but the whole point with restless is to spam them from the graveyard as many times as possible. Say you just smashed a special summoned Weeping Maiden with Asura Priest for 3400 then flanked it with this to bring that same maiden back for another go, or hit your opponent's hand with revenant, or their deck with Avarice...twice. Get the idea? :3 But yeah, it remains a tad situational. Let's see what we can do about that.

AND he's eight-star, so you can't use him yourself.
Well, with the mid-format banlist change, that kind of conservation has become a tad harder, really. (hinging our whole winning strike on a single copy of Return? Not likely.) Plus, most recursion methods these days stay on the field to work their magic (Premature, Escape, D.D.R. etc.), meaning that you hit both the recursion card and the recurred monster in one strike. (that's already 1200 burn)

Meaning that you get to transfer negative effects right away, as opposed to needing special support to do it.
In a way, yes, but there's a difference. The parasite effects are all slow grind, hinging either on your opponent's actions or only triggering once a turn, meaning that you have to keep them on your opponent's field for at least a turn before reaping any significant benefits. The restless, on the other hand, are all about being blown up again and again, most of them only landing a big, one-shot effect before they go bye-bye.

Seriously, poor Warder.
Mmhmm...I was looking to make a more user-friendly restless to stand alongside the warrior, but I do get the point. Maybe up the destruction to two cards each turn?

Counter-productivity thing already addressed above. This card pretty much sums up what the set is about, you know. xD

Umm...pardon me if I missed something, but what happened to Premature Burial, Monster Reborn, D.D.R., Dasher, and all those other special summon methods? Everything just mentioned works equally well for Spirit's Possession, and if what you drop down there is the emperor, that could mean one seriously screwed up rush for your opponent. ;D


Oh dear, looks like it's revamp time again. :x
