EFFECT MONSTER (Plant / WATER / Level 3 / 1300 ATK / 1100 DEF)

TEXT: "When this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard, you can add 1 Plant-Type monster with 1000 DEF or less from your Deck to your hand"

HARV'S REVIEW



It's a shame what they did to this card...it could have been so much more, and a nice addition to Plant-Type decks. The best way to show it's shortcomings is by simply comparing it to a semi-similar card, Sangan:

Sangan:

*Dark Attribute, that works with a lot of other cards.
*Can fetch any monster, 1500 ATK or less, from your deck. That is like an unlimited supply of monsters...not to mention some really great monsters.
*You can't miss Sangan's timing when he is sent to the Graveyard.
*His 1000 ATK works great with some cards such as Crush Card Virus, and Limit Reverse.

Botanical Girl:

*Water attribute, that works with few cards.
*Can fetch only Plant-Type monsters, 1000 DEF or less, from your deck. Plant-Type is restricting, but she would no-doubt be in a Plant deck anyway. As for monsters she can fetch, there is like diddly, let alone decent ones. Maybe Rigerous Reaver, Lord Poison, and a couple more. That is all.
*Being an optional Trigger Effect, Botanical Girl's timing can be missed if she is used for a tribute summon, or more specifically, if her effect is not the last thing to happen.
*Her 1300 ATK is a wee higher than Sangans, but it is less versatile overall.

And the winner is...

Nuff Said!


Plant Deck - 2/10

Art - 4/10 (I don't trust chicks with flowers growing out of their heads...)

CHARLIE'S REVIEW



Today we have Botanical Girl the plant version of Goblin Zombie. It is a water type. It is a 3 star monster. This card could have been so much better, It can barely search anything. It cannot even search Lonefire Blossom. It can only search stuff like Weed which the Lonefire Blossom loop already takes card of. In plant decks the recruiter of choice is UFO Turtle mainly because you can search stuff like Blazewing Butterfly, Lonefire Blossom and special summon to the field as well. This card cannot even be abused with Polynosis or Spiritual Water Art Aoi. It will miss the timing since it is a you can effect, which hurt it even further. This card could have been great, but the 1000 limit on its search really killed it.


Plant decks - 1.5/10

Anywhere else - 1/10
Art - 4/10 A girl with a flower on its head... Real exciting Konami LOL. The artwork is janky too.
