It's kinda like Exodia Mage was. Difference is:
-you can play most of combo pieces at anytime before Shudderwock
-you don't have cards like Ice Block to protect you, but in a way Bloodsucc and Healing Rain does the trick well enough
Anyways, I don't think Shudderwock is...too op. Not to mention it's still too early to say that. But I do agree animation takes way too long...
