Default Gimmick Puppet Ritual, Good or not worth it??

Gimmick Puppet Ritual (Spell/Normal)

If your opponent's Life Points are at least 2000 higher than yours: Target 2 Level 8 "Gimmick Puppet" monsters in your Graveyard; Special Summon those targets. You can only activate 1 "Gimmick Puppet Ritual" per turn. You cannot conduct your Battle Phase during the turn you activate this card.

Is this card worth it or the costs and conditions to use it too high and/or situational to be of any use? Remember they have already released another spell reborn card similar to this its shown below.

Junk Puppet (Spell/Normal)
Target 1 "Gimmick Puppet" monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that monster. You can only activate 1 "Junk Puppet" per turn.

Please provide feedback and tips on how this card's use can be maximised if it is usable.

Maybe, as Gimmick Puppets aren't a Battle Phase archetype.

Their Xyz don't care for battle phase, and most of their monsters have low attack. The battle phase is just extra, but they look to burn or stall for game.

Maybe a 1-of tech, unless you're running an Upstart Goblin/Hope for Escape version.

I was thinking of upstart too but I came to the conclusion that this card is beyond help because it eat your battle phase.

not once per turn, and you can use it in conjunction with Machine Duplication to have a potential field of five Level 8's, still without using your normal summon. Ignoring the Lp differential restriction (Maybe Diamond Dude) this card holds OTK burn potential.

With graveyard set-up required, it is more of a late mid to late game card and an interesting finisher. Decent topdeck.

This deck is for otk .
Most of the time you will find yourself harassing your opponent with big beaters.

No once per turn clause, and you can combine with Frozen Soul so that your opponent skips their battle phase as well.

So you guys think that this deck is so uber that every given time you will be ahead of your opponent...
Do you know what 2000 lp is??? A direct attack from any xyz... A Solemn Warning flip! Hell if you play Upstart Goblin an attack from any monster with 1000+ attack!!
And you call that situational?? Oh god...
The only think we should consider is the battle phase skip thing.
Anyway I would run 1 copy for sure. It is a one card xyz after all...

context please. it's a 1 card rank 8 xyz. the rank 8 lineup right now is pretty much entirely offense + bp oriented (exception to coaching trainer and leo i guess?). skipping the bp kills this card

Actually the 2 restriction together killed the card.
If it wasn't only for the 2000 it would be situationnal but ok.
If it was only for the battle,it would be a fine one card xyz,especially for felgran,giant trainer and giant killer or to set up the virus with heaven's string.

I don't find problem with the LP condition but yeah, the battle phase hurts the playability of the card. Probably it is focused to Leo, Strings and Grinder which are more defensive than offensive cards.

Card is terrible at the moment but it could even banworthy one day if we get broken enough rank 8s.

Currently, not enough decent targets.

This card is good for summoning multiple Rank 8s in a turn. Specifically, making Destiny Leo and that Felgrand Xyz guy in a turn.

Once that guy is released, this card can actually be worth running 1 of.

Until we get more Rank 8's of Felgrand's level of goodness or higher (we should have had Rank 8's like this to begin with, but that's for another discussion), Puppet Ritual will have a lot of trouble seeing play.

I'm on the other end of this, I was running P{uppets for a while and the battle phase skipping doesn't mean a thing when you have Felgrand who is one of the best xyz blocking your field. And you can use multiple per turn.

I was trying a Hope for Escape/upstart type of thing, but it was kinda weird.

The BP skip means nothing, but the lifepoint requirement is so hard to meet sometimes so you either choose to take hits and risk losing, or wait for cards to boost the opponent.

Of course it's situational. Oh look, I'm in an advantageous position, plenty of lp...good top deck to seal the game? No, I drew this crap. Half the time when you draw this, it'll be a dead draw. If that's not inconsistent I don't know what is. Just attacking your opponent, or their own Solemn cards being activated, has the potential to make cards in your deck dead.

And then when you do get to play it, you make your big move....and then proceed to sit back with no battle phase and allow your opponent a solid chance at wrecking it.
