| [[Plant]] Decks were still topping after being hit format after format in 2012, Konami must have decided to finally kill them. Extremely consistent in Synchro Decks. Easily recyclable through its own effect, but the effect can only be used once per Duel. This may have also been a hit to Future Fusion FTK Decks (though Future Fusion was Forbidden, and then errata'd to make it slower). Came back to 3 since Plant Synchro Decks are no longer viable in the current metagame, then recently re-banned due to applications in the OCG meta. This card is Unlimited in the TCG.

| Key card in [[SPYRAL]]s.

| When combined with [[SPYRAL Double Helix]], [[Inferno Reckless Summon]], and especially [[Machine Duplication]], this card is able to create some insane combos and loops. At 1, it's much easier to permanently eliminate this card. Additionally, it effectively prevents circumvention of its self banishment effect after revival, as the only eligible [[Xyz Material]] to use alongside it now is [[SPYRAL GEAR - Drone]], who is also Limited.
