Where'd my effect go ?!

Yeah you know what I'm about to discuss. The card that vanishes a monsters' effect.
Say hello to: 
During your opponent's Main Phase, you can send this card from your hand to the Graveyard to select 1 face-upEffect Monster your opponent controlsNegate the effect(s) of that monster until theEnd Phase.
 Why is such a weakling with 0 attack and defense points worth a spot in my deck?
Firstly Effect Veiler is a 1 star tuner which means she has the ability to bring out virtually any star synchro. 1 star tuners always make for fine tuning. This means your deck can be completely XYZ based and still run the staple synchros. Next the effect. This is the reason why Effect Veiler has sealed its' spot in many top decks. During the OPPONENT'S main phase. That is part 1 of what makes this card great. Monster effects that work during the opponent's turn are rare. You can send this card from your HAND to the graveyard. This is known as a 'hand trap' in the Yu-Gi-Oh world. Cards like this are hard to predict and very rarely can the opponent do anything about it. 

Finally, negate the effect(s) if that monster till the end phase. There is so much potential this card packs and so many plays this card can stop in it's tracks. Take the 'The agent of creation- Venus' card for example. If you drop Effect veiler on this card you save yourself for one turn and prevent them from bringing out 3 shineballs and summoning a Gachi Gachi. Drop Veiler on Tour guide from the Underworld? Stop them from getting a plus one and getting a Numbers 17: Leviathan dragon onto the field. 

Now I want to put forward a more personal opinion of my own. 
"I believe Effect Veiler should be ran at 3 in every deck"
Why do I say this? Why no stick to just 2?
The 'Order of Chaos' booster pack which is about to come out will unleash what is known as the 'Zenmaighty loop' in which your opponent can potentially make you start your turn with only 2 cards in hand.  How can you prevent this? Effect Veiler. Drop that veiler once the threatening effect appears and your opponent will be left with a weak monster sitting there effectless ready for you to run over next turn. 

Note: Effect veiler doesn't work on Rescue Rabbit.
This is because tributing itself is a cost so therefore effect veiler has no effect to negate.

This card cannot be Special Summoned from theDeck. You canbanish this face-up card you control; Special Summon 2 Level 4 or lower Normal Monsters with the same name from your Deck.Destroy them during the End Phase. The effect of "Rescue Rabbit" can only be activated once per turn.


I hope this is enough reason to support my statement about why Effect Veiler  should be run at 3. Another reason why I think this statement is true is because of the new Effect Veiler reprint. It is possible that Konami wants to give people more of a chance to stand up to these new over-powered decks.
