As most finishers in today's
Metagame are very hard, or even impossible to counter, it would be wise to delay the opponent's finishers by using methods such as Discard before you can bring out your own.

fatty as despite most finishers have more than 6000 power, fatty is only used to refer to a creature's power and not it's abilities whereas finisher is usually used to refer to the opposite.
