Mind Crush has always been a good tech card. Not only is it a good counter against Honest and Blackwing – Kalut the Moon Shadow, it allows you to have a glimpse at opponent’s hand – only if the conditions are met.
Now that Mind Crush is back at
one in the upcoming March 2010 ban list, it won’t see as much play as
before, but nonetheless, it’s always good to correct any misplays.
Mind CrushThe most common misplay that I’ve seen is players using Mind Crush as a mean to reveal opponent’s hand. Taking a closer look at its text, Mind Crush
Declare 1 card name. If your opponent has the declared card(s) in their
hand, discard all of the declared card(s) to the Graveyard. Otherwise,
you randomly discard 1 card.
has no mention on anything regarding looking or checking of opponent’s
hand. That is because you only get to look at opponent’s hand only if
you cannot confirm if the named card is still in his hand.
Here are a few examples to clarify. Do note the restriction status of cards that are used in the examples:
Restricted to 1: Dark Armed Dragon
Restricted to 2: Judgment Dragon
Unrestricted: Blackwing – Kalut the Moon Shadow
Mind Crush declaring Dark Armed Dragon.
Opponent discards one Dark Armed Dragon upon resolution of Mind Crush.
-Your opponent does not have to reveal his hand since it is not possible to have any more copies of a restricted to one card in his hand.
Mind Crush declaring Judgment Dragon.
Opponent discards one Judgment Dragon upon resolution of Mind Crush.
The other copy of Judgment Dragon is not found on his Field, Graveyard or Remove From Play.
-Your opponent has to reveal his hand to confirm that he is not holding onto the other copy of Judgment Dragon.
Mind Crush declaring Blackwing – Kalut the Moon Shadow.
Opponent discards nothing upon resolution of Mind Crush.
There is a copy of Blackwing – Kalut the Moon Shadow each on his Field, Graveyard and Remove From Play.
-Your opponent does not have to reveal his hand to confirm that he is not holding onto the last copy of Blackwing – Kalut the Moon Shadow. On a side note, that’s a bad play from the Mind Crush player.
In short, your opponent only has to reveal his hand only if there is
still a possibility of him holding onto a copy of the named card, after
checking his Field, Graveyard and Remove From Play.
