    Title is self explanatory, what's the most useless attack?

    Probably one of the stat-lowering 0 power moves. Can't think of any off the top of my head.

    Mugician Steal is pretty meh too. Giving up Water for stealing an MC doesn't seem quite fair, not to mention it would be inconsistent as Hell to draw

    Something in me says Reverberate isn't the greatest attack ever designed. The only thing that made me use it was it's free cost in deckbuilding.

    Way to think outside of the box guys, idk if you can ever say a 0 bp attack as truely useless. I'm go Lucky Shot if u can find a deck to fit that in kudos to you. Later series i don't see much point of minor roar or electric rain, feel free to disagree.

    Gotta agree with kettac the worst attacks are the ones that eat up your build points without much benefit
    Infight always seemed pretty useless to me too costly with an effect that's too situational
    Also feel like teraport has always been outclassed by the much cheaper mirthquake and in the later sets by grounding grapple
    Also agree on the lucky shot it was passable in DOP when creatures could have pretty bad stats sometimes but now it's just almost worthless

    Lucky Shot is pretty bad, but I'm not sure if outclassed attacks should count unless they came out after their weaker copy. Like, Torrent of Flame is useless in comparison to Perplexing Heat, but the latter came later and was a case of the power creep in the game.

    Mirthquake was out before teraport however and is significantly cheaper with a similer effect the extra 10 damage jus doesn't seem worth a 3 build point cost vs a 0

    Yeah, that's one where it works just fine. Danihilation is also really situational and you'd probably be better of saving the buildpoint in favor of an Ember Swarm or the like. But if you know your opponent's deck in advance, it's okay

    Oh wow, that would be hilarious, actually. Not to mention humiliating. It'd be really impractical, but it would be ultimate disrespect to win with Lucky Shot of all things. That should go into Gan'trak decks now

    Lucky Shot is a dagger attack, so creatures with low disciplines overall (Dror'niq dagger anyone?) can make it a house of an attack. Melting Camp is also good assurance, and the location can also make Rancorous Projection viable in non-Gan'trak dagger builds.

    Card's still extremely hard to use, that's obvious, but it's rather appropriate for a LUCKY Shot.
