    Okay, so I have, in the worst case scenario, 5 turns for you to pull all 5 pieces of Exodia, The Forbidden One.

    3/4 if you have the means to play Exodia, The True Forbidden One, and get it onto my field.

    But Whimsicott is a grass type. This means if you delay to a 6 turn play, you’re walling anything Blue or otherwise Water related.

    … Fuck it, Blue Eyes White Dragon.

      You could just get one-star yu-gi-oh card and boom, you’ve got a 1000/1000 that you can play without tapping anything. Unless your opponent has removal or something, you’re winning as soon as it can attack

        In Magic, if a card doesn’t have a mana cost, it cannot be cast by normal means. Since you only get add the outside card to your hand, not put it into play, you now have absolutely no way of playing it. That 1000/1000 is stuck in your hand.

      You can only have four of any card in most Magic formats. So even with perfect draws, you’re only getting four pieces of Exodia, without retrieving this from a graveyard. Theoretically doable, but in Magic any deck that relied on playing the same card five times would be a genuinely terrible deck.
