Default Sinister Serpent.

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Reborn_Tengu

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/The_Fabled_Cerburrel

Reborn tengu special summons a copy of itself from the deck when its discarded, and has a decent 1700 attack.

Fabled Cerburrel is a level 2 tuner

With both of these coming into our meta within the next 5-6 weeks, how about konami puts Sinister Serpent back to one?

Sure it can be reused again, and you can make a spell card with a discard cost free once a turn, but what decent cards are there to abuse this with?

Point is, Those two cards stated above are much better than Sinister Serpent, and are going to be at three.

What do you guys think?

Edit: Reborn Tengu's effect does not activate when discarded unlike we first thought, so forget him.

ITT: People who haven't actually played using Sinister Serpent before.

Reborn Tengu isn't better than Sinister Serpent most of the time.

The Fabled stuff, more splashable, at the very least.

Both definitely have more immediately visible effects on the gamestate, though the Fabled stuff is the only thing I'd outright call "better" in any instances.

Sinister Serpent really only plays badly with Snake Rain (and only really when 3 copies are allowed, 1-2 is np). Its heyday is long gone outside of that, and people are just hysterical over empty +1s that are really just offsetting -1s that happen far less often than their inexperienced selves can appreciate.

And yes, Exodia needs his sixth piece.

I'd love me a free Lightning Vortex, Raigeki Break, Super Polymerization, and Brionac.

And I'm sure your opponents will like you putting bad cards into your deck.

Lightning Vortex becomes marginally better when it doesn't have a cost. >.>

Marginally is not nearly good enough. You would not only have to add Sinister you would also have to add lighting. And Sinister isn't all that good if you don't have mutliple uses for it.

You do not have to discard reborn tengu, it is when he is removed from the field. I am sure he will be banned/limited coming sept 2011.

I'm confused. Is it when it's discarded or when it's removed from the field?

Sinister Serpent is not a threat anymore. It can go to 1. Only decks that suffer from consistency issues can even utilize the meager +1 it makes.

Removed from the field, they just put up the article in the strategy site. Tengu went from nearly useless to potentially broken and very abuseable.

We both know how to neuter Fish once and for all. It doesn't involve Serpent's placement on the list.

You cannot live in fantasy land. Fish gets better with Sinister does it not?

And Fish's true problem is leagues beyond the pathetic gains it would attain from having Sinister Serpent at 1, yes?
