Xyz Avenger Really Doesn’t Like Xyz Yu-Gi-Oh Cards

The most recently revealed Yu-Gi-Oh card in the upcoming set really has something against Xyz monsters. So much so, the more epic the Xyz monster, the more it messes with your opponent!

  • Xyz Avenger
    Level 4 / DARK
    Fiend / Effect
    This card is unaffected by the effects of Xyz Monsters. When this card is destroyed by battle with an Xyz Monster and sent to the Graveyard: Apply this effect, depending on that monster’s Rank; ● Rank 3 or lower: Your opponent sends 1 card from their Extra Deck to the Graveyard. ● Rank 4: Look at your opponent’s Extra Deck and send 1 card from their Extra Deck to the Graveyard. ● Rank 5 or higher: Your opponent sends a number of cards from their Extra Deck to the Graveyard equal to the Rank of that Xyz Monster.#
    ATK: 1800 DEF: 700

Well then, lets hope you don’t leave any high ranking Xyz monsters around when Xyz Avenger is about. This could cause some serious problems in various versions of Dragon Ruler decks, potentially taking out 7 or so cards of that players extra deck late game could be devastating.

But what do you think? Is Xyz Avenger a good card? Or is it just a bad gimmick?
