In a speed format where 3 msts are everywhere, lets discuss Bottomless Trap Hole.
The bad thing about this is obviously you setting this card as the only card and it dies to MST quite easily.
But what if your opponent doesnt have MST? Its still a decent card.
It works similarly to people sayin Dark Armed and BLS can still be Solemn-ed and Bottomless-ed but they are still broken nevertheless.
The reason why i want to discuss this card over Warning is because BTH is solid VS Agents and LS, and Warning has a hefty lp cost while this does not, making it very practical so that you dont die to 2 JD in your next few turns.
VS Agent Angels this card is still important to take care of Hyperion and Kristia. You CANNOT rely on Veiler to negate Hyperions effect because being a 2800 beatstick still helps a lot, and it gets alot better in a format like this.
Furthermore you could run the risk of setting 2 cards and risk Heavy Storm or risk having a 50/50 removal by MST.
The strange thing is that in Malaysia here, we have had people running 2 MST and another copy of Dust Tornado already last format (probably due to the DW matchup), so it may or may not make a difference.
VS LS, you can activate this in response to Lylas to remove them from play still. At least opponent lost a normal summon, lost the ability to mill, and since it was banished, it will not facilitate JD. Its always good to ruin LS' setup a lil
The same thing applies here with Hyperions because you cannot hope to Veiler your opponents JD and BLS or Sorcerors, because they are still solid beatsticks. So, it leads us to think if BTH really should not be removed from our maindecks or not.
What do you think?
Of course, this post is more focused on the OCG, compared to the TCG, but it still applies both ways since LS/ Twilight and Agents are gonna be big everywhere in both metas.
I would like to hear your opinions.
I cannot call on either side yet because both pros and cons kinda balance each other out. Maybe cons outweigh the pros a lil bit since BTH dies to DW.
I think extensive testdecking is required.
Thats all for today thanks for reading
