Tinplate Archduke

Earth/Machine/Xyz/Rank 4 
3 Level 4 monsters  
During either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; change the battle positions of all monsters your opponent controls. (Flip Effects are not activated at this time.)

An interesting card from the latest Duel Terminal series, Tinplate Archduke is a monster with plenty of shenanigans in it's arsenal. While 3 monsters seems a bit costly, it's effect makes up for the cost. Being able to switch your opponent's monsters into a different position is no laughing matter. And having flip effects not activate is pretty good too, so it can laugh at cards like Ryko, Morphing Jar, GK Spy, or Penguin Soldier to name a few.

It's effect seems mostly defensive, since changing positions can save you from an all out attack, but it can also be quite offensive. Just like Karakuri's own Burei, this can turn any opponent's defensive play and turn it into an offensive strike. I can see this card being a bit fun to play in Karakuri for that reason, since they already take advantage of the whole switch position deal.

Costly summon but fun effect, Tinplate Archduke is a fun card to keep an eye out on.
