Pot of Greederosity

Look at the top 3 cards of your Deck. Select 1 of them, and add it to your hand, and return the rest to your Deck. You can only activate 1 "Pot of Greederosity" and you cannot Special Summon during the turn you activate this card.
Now, this is quite the interesting card coming out in The Duelist Revolution. As it says, you show the top 3 cards of your deck and add one of those to your hand. Quite simple and efficient.

It seems generic support has come out in the form of this card. It adds some search value to many decks that need it.

However, you cannot special summon the turn you use this card and it can only be activated once per turn. Well, it balances out it's why not?

So how about using this card in decks that don't special summon? Mostly in Control or Oppression decks.

Activate Pot of Greederosity and perhaps add a Gadget to your hand, or maybe a Fissure/Smashing Ground. Need a specific monster that can adapt to the situation? This card can help you out. But what if I get a trap, won't my opponent know what's coming?

Yes, and no.

Let's say you get Widespread Dud, Royal Oppression, or any other useful trap from the card's effect, and set it. Your opponent might try to destroy it to keep you from doing it, but what if you use this knowledge in order to set an elaborate trap?

Searched a Royal Oppression? Why not set Widespread Dud for mind games? Have your opponent waste their removal on a bluff so that you can be safe to set the searched card afterwards.

However, this card is still vulnerable to such cards as Dark Bribe, Magic Drain, and even Rai-Oh.As mentioned in G-Ray's blog, he stated Rai-Oh could be this card's most common enemy. And it just might as well be, since it's such a commonly played card in today's meta.

However, despite the card's downside of not being able to special summon or it's vulnerability, it's still a great card that could very well support multiple decks (even Anti-Meta decks) in more ways than one. The possibilities with this are numerous, and many have yet to be discovered...

Coming soon, more thoughts on other aspects in the yugioh world...
