So Kevin Tewart posts on the judge page that Xyz material monsters are indeed considered on the field.
This takes the cake. I mean, really? This turns the game into a completely different one now. The rulings are going to be a whole mess.
Not just that, if Xyz materials are considered to be on the field, would Dimensional Fissure/Macro Cosmos/Banisher of the Radiance prevent said materials from being used? Because if we go by that logic, the materials are still on the field. Would that render all Xyz monsters useless?
Can you target Xyz materials with cards like Raigeki Break or Icarus Attack, since they are considered to still be on the field?
Can Caius remove a material now?
Not just that, but Reborn Tengu and Sangan just went to a whole new category of monster. Tengu now can search when detached and Sangan gets to search when detached. Not happy about this.
And what about Plaguespreader Zombie or Bolt Hedgehog? Will the little guys be removed if brought back by their own effects and then used as Xyz materials?
I rarely complain about this game, since I tend to enjoy it as much as I can. But in my 8 years in Yugioh, I have never seen something as outrageous as this!
While most people may be happy about the positives these rulings might give for Sangan and Tengu, it raises way too many questions and will probably mess the game up due to conflicting mechanics and rulings in other scenarios.
So the bad outweighs the good.
So many questions, so little answers...
Let chaos begin!
