Dark Spellcaster Lv 4 1800/0
When this card is Normal Summoned: You can target 1 Level 4 DARK monster with either 0 ATK or DEF in your Graveyard, except "Drewes the Unseen Druid"; Special Summon that target in face-up Defense Position. Its effects are negated. You can only use the effect of "Drewes the Unseen Druid" once per turn.
Man, I'm excited for this guy. Sure he has the same normal summon, summon a level 4 from the grave that so many monsters these days have, but what I like about this guy is of course the decks he supports. First off, he has a nice base 1800 atk which is pretty good and has that 0 def for Recurring Nightmare and supports his buddy Chamenleon really well. Add in just a negate eff and only once per turn (which is pretty useless but if it prevents other restrictions go ahead and add it) for his cost and you got a pretty decent card.
Now these cards are only good as their support, and this guy has quite a bit of it still. First he has got the obvious targets in Umbral which allows even more dark Xyz and is a recurring target, just great right there along with his buddy Chamen (which I'll mention alot since they share requirements) and allows for that normal summon King feral imp. Then you also got GoZombies with 2 main targets in Ghost and Master and again allows for just a simple +0 Xyz summon unlike master and his discard or Oni needing an Xyz. Though since this dude doesn't stop other special summons you can Mezuki/Book of Life an Oni and get another Xyz off that initial one (most likely chain or Feral). Definitely has some benefits that Chamen can't provide.
Now I think my personal favourite use for this guy would be in Crashbugs. That's because it allows for a nice rank 4 engine with a dead Super (who also becomes a nice 3000 wall if you don't use Xyz). And since your probably running a Creeping Darkness for your supers in the first place you got this guy as another target versus just streetpatrols and your millers.
So this is probably one of my favourite cards out of the new set and just can't wait for him to get onto DN.
