The arguments in this thread are straight out retarded. I can't even tell anymore if it should be taken serious.
Why don't we all multisphere just 1
Lvl into Lawtia to abuse the crap out of this Shade?!
Shades in ShrineKnights... hmm... sounds like a winner to me? So where's all this random Shade splash of yours, Gon? Where's your Shade in even Urgant?
Nowhere, thats where.
There's not one Undead made weaker because there's Shade. Not one EN unit. Not even ONE unit in Lawtia that's been given weaker stats or function because it has Shade.
Lawtia units get slightly weaker stats or skills (like if...) when they got a powerfull trick up their sleave. Lawtia is a Sphere of tricks. It sets your HP straight to 0. It endlesly keeps reviving. It does normal damage AND damage when it closes. It has insane Atk stacking. Sends to Cem. SP drain in all kinds of ways.
Shade is simply Lawtia's lvl1 unit used for 'in between' phases. And lets face it... there aren't many Lvl1 fillers to chose from??? A LP trigger, a bridge between lvl3's, and with some timing annoying enough to bug your opponent with. Sure it has an impact on the game (all cards better have or they're useless), but nothing to the extend you claim.
I understand your benefit to blow this whole "Shade OP" thing out of proportion. I truely do. It's a weak attempt to try and make others defend the same stance you took on returns.
Do realize the longer you make a fool out of yourself here, the lesser people will think of your opinion. (maybe a pot and keddle story coming from me, but w/e. Take my advice for what it's worth)
