Xyz Monster
Traptrix Rafflesia
EARTH | Plant-Type Xyz / Rank 4 | ATK 300 | DEF 2500
2 Level 4 monsters
This card is unaffected by Trap effects while it has Xyz Material. "Traptrix" monsters you control, except "Traptrix Rafflesia", cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects. Your opponent cannot target "Traptrix" monsters you control, except "Traptrix Rafflesia", with card effects. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card and send 1 "Hole" Normal Trap Card that meets its activation conditions from your Deck to the Graveyard; this effect becomes that Trap Card's effect when that card is activated.
SECRET RARE  

                                        Rating: 2
Konami sure hyped this card up but since it'll be in Defense Mode and can only grab Hole Trap Cards, it really isn't that big a deal, especially since your opponent will know you have it waiting.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN098
Effect Monster
Arisen Gaia the Fierce Knight
DARK | Warrior | Level 7 | ATK 2300 | DEF 2100
If your opponent controls more monsters than you do, you can Normal Summon this card without Tributing. If this card is Tributed: You can Special Summon 1 "Black Luster Soldier" monster from your hand or Graveyard. You can only use this effect of "Arisen Gaia the Fierce Knight" once per turn. When you Ritual Summon a "Black Luster Soldier" monster, you can banish this card from your Graveyard as 1 of the monsters required for the Ritual Summon.
RARE  

                                        Rating: 1
Doesn't matter if it can be used for a Ritual Summon because so can many other better monsters. This is one farce knight that should've stayed dead.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN097
Effect Monster
Black Luster Soldier - Sacred Soldier
LIGHT | Warrior | Level 8 | ATK 3000 | DEF 2500
When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can target 1 of your banished LIGHT or DARK monsters and 1 card your opponent controls; return that banished card to the Graveyard, and if you do, banish that card your opponent controls. You can only use this effect of "Black Luster Soldier - Sacred Soldier" once per turn. When this card destroys an opponent’s monster by battle: You can target 1 Level 7 or lower Warrior-Type monster in your Graveyard; add it to your hand.
ULTRA RARE  

                                        Rating: 3
As with any other beatstick like this, you'll be able to do a fair bit, even if that means just attacking with it.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN096
Pendulum Monster
Dharma-Eye Magician
LIGHT
| Spellcaster-Type Pendulum | Level 7 | ATK 2000 | DEF 2500 / Scale 2
Once per turn: You can reveal 1 Pendulum Monster from your hand, then target 1 "Magician" card in your Pendulum Zone; that target's Pendulum Scale becomes the same as the revealed Pendulum Monster's, until the end of this turn (even if this card leaves the field).

While this Pendulum Summoned card is on the field, "Magician" Pendulum Monsters you control cannot be destroyed by your opponent's card effects during the turn this card was Pendulum Summoned.
SUPER RARE

                                        Rating: 2
You can adjust one of your Pendulum Magicians' scales to a higher or lower scale but it doesn't remain that way for long, nor does it protect Pendulum Magicians you have from destruction for very long either.  
 
                                                      BOSH-EN095
Effect Monster
Red-Eyes Retro Dragon
DARK | Dragon | Level 4 | ATK 1700 | DEF 1600
If a Level 7 or lower "Red-Eyes" monster(s) you control, except "Red-Eyes B. Chick", is destroyed by your opponent's attack or card effect and sent to your Graveyard: You can Special Summon this card from your hand in Defense Position, and if you do, Special Summon as many of those destroyed monsters as possible in the same battle position they were in when destroyed. You can Tribute this card; you can Normal Summon 1 "Red-Eyes" monster during your Main Phase this turn, except "Red-Eyes B. Chick", in addition to your Normal Summon/Set. (You can only gain this effect once per turn.)
SUPER RARE  

                                        Rating: 2
It won't save the Dragons from the harm about to take them down but will bring them back and join them on the field, though with stats of just 1700/1600, it won't be much opposition as everyone else will probably be stronger. It also can at least bring out a better Red-Eyes monster, even if that means using it as your Normal Summon that turn too.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN094
Xyz Monster
Cyber Dragon Infinity
LIGHT | Machine-Type Xyz / Rank 6 | ATK 2100 | DEF 1600
3 Level 6 LIGHT Machine-Type monsters
Once per turn, you can also Xyz Summon "Cyber Dragon Infinity" by using "Cyber Dragon Nova" you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.) This card gains 200 ATK for each Xyz Material attached to it. Once per turn: You can target 1 face-up Attack Position monster on the field; attach it to this card as a face-up Xyz Material. Once per turn, during either player's turn, when a card or effect is activated: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy it.
SECRET RARE

                                        Rating: 2
Thankfully, you're not left to use a Rank-Up-Magic card to bring this guy out more easily, though you will have to still put in a fair amount of effort to Xyz Summon it using Cyber Dragon Nova and it will gain at least 600 ATK for your efforts, not to mention it can steal monsters and make them its Xyz Mateirals but it will lose materials and ATK if you choose to negate effects.   
 
                                                      BOSH-EN093
Fusion Monster
Chimeratech Rampage Dragon
DARK | Machine-Type Fusion | Level 5 | ATK 2100 | DEF 1600
2 or more "Cyber Dragon" monsters
A Fusion Summon of this card can only be done with the above Fusion Materials. When this card is Fusion Summoned: You can target Spell/Trap Cards on the field, up to the number of Fusion Materials used for its Fusion Summon; destroy them. Once per turn: You can send up to 2 LIGHT Machine-Type monsters from your Deck to the Graveyard, and if you do, for each monster sent to the Graveyard, this card gains 1 additional attack during each Battle Phase this turn.
SUPER RARE

                                        Rating: 1
The original Chimeratech could beat this thing in a snap and it would only need three Fusion Materials to do it while this guy stays at the stats of the original, which is also a better choice than this because it's easier to Summon, not to mention the original Chimeratech automatically gains extra attacks so for the same price of Fusion Materials, this'd get the same number of attacks without having to send anything else to the Graveyard.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN092
Effect Monster
Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince
WATER | Sea Serpent | Level 1 | ATK 800 | DEF 0
You can send 1 "Atlantean" monster from your Deck to your Graveyard, except "Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince"; add 1 "Atlantean" card from your Deck to your hand, except "Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince". If this card is sent to the Graveyard to activate a WATER monster's effect: Target 1 "Atlantean" monster in your Graveyard, except "Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince"; Special Summon it. You can only use each effect of "Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince" once per turn.
ULTRA RARE

                                        Rating: 1
Surely there's a better option than this guy since it has stats even below Fiendish Rhino Warrior and offers nothing more than what the other Atlanteans have.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN091
Effect Monster
Fiendish Rhino Warrior
EARTH | Fiend | Level 3 | ATK 1400 | DEF 900
Fiend-Type monsters you control, except "Fiendish Rhino Warrior", cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects. If this card is sent to the Graveyard: You can send 1 Fiend-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, except "Fiendish Rhino Warrior". You can only use this effect of "Fiendish Rhino Warrior" once per turn.
RARE

                                        Rating: 1
It looks promising but since it doesn't even protect itself, what's the point in using the card? Those stats are far below decency so even your oppoenent's lesser powerful monsters will take this out with ease.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN090
Pendulum Monster
Performapal Pendulum Sorcerer
EARTH
| Spellcaster-Type Pendulum | Level 4 | ATK 1500 | DEF 800 / Scale 2

If a "Performapal" monster(s) is Pendulum Summoned to your side of the field: All "Performapal" monsters you currently control gain 1000 ATK until the end of this turn (even if this card leaves the field).
If this card is Special Summoned: You can target up to 2 cards you control; destroy them, and if you do, add "Performapal" monsters with different names from your Deck to your hand, except "Performapal Pendulum Sorcerer", equal to the number of monsters destroyed. You can only use this effect of "Performapal Pendulum Sorcerer" once per turn.
SECRET RARE

                                        Rating: 2
You certainly have your options with this but none of them make it worth being Secret Rare.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN089
Spell Card
Interrupted Kaiju Slumber
Normal Spell
Destroy as many monsters on the field as possible, then Special Summon in Attack Position, 2 "Kaiju" monsters with different names from your Deck (1 on each side), but they cannot change their battle positions, and must attack, if able. During your Main Phase, except the turn this card was sent to the Graveyard: You can banish this card from your Graveyard; add 1 "Kaiju" monster from your Deck to your hand. You can only activate 1 "Interrupted Kaiju Slumber" per turn.
SUPER RARE

                                        Rating: 1
Though you could wipe out your opponent's defenses, Dark Hole is still legal and will do this job better without forcing you to give your opponent a Kaiju monster from your Deck.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN088
Effect Monster
Jizukiru, the Star Destroying Kaiju
LIGHT | Machine | Level 10 | ATK 3300 | DEF 2600
You can Special Summon this card (from your hand) to your opponent's side of the field in Attack Position, by Tributing 1 monster they control. If your opponent controls a "Kaiju" monster, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand) in Attack Position. You can only control 1 "Kaiju" monster. During either player's turn, when a card or effect is activated that targets exactly 1 card (and no other cards): You can remove 3 Kaiju Counters from anywhere on the field; negate that effect, and if you do, you can destroy 1 card on the field.
RARE

                                        Rating: 3
Like Dark Eclipser, this guy won't punish you if you just use it as a beatstick and with 3300 ATK, not even Red Dragon Archfiend or Shooting Star Dragon can take it down on its own.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN086
Effect Monster
Gadarla, the Mystery Dust Kaiju
WIND | Insect | Level 8 | ATK 2700 | DEF 1600
You can Special Summon this card (from your hand) to your opponent's side of the field in Attack Position, by Tributing 1 monster they control. If your opponent controls a "Kaiju" monster, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand) in Attack Position. You can only control 1 "Kaiju" monster. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can remove 3 Kaiju Counters from anywhere on the field; the ATK and DEF of all other monsters on the field become halved.
RARE

                                        Rating: 1
Though it cannot be Special Summoned and requires more Tributes, The Wicked Dreadroot does this guy's work for free and is quite a bit stronger.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN086
Trap Card
Kozmojo
Normal Trap
Target 1 "Kozmo" monster you control; destroy it, and if you do, banish 1 card your opponent controls or in their Graveyard. You can only activate 1 "Kozmojo" per turn.
SECRET RARE

                                        Rating: 1
Their kozmojo doesn't seem to be working here because there's no point in destroying your own kind just to banish an opponent's card as there are better ways to trigger monster effects.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN085
Effect Monster
Kozmo Dark Eclipser
DARK | Machine | Level 9 | ATK 3000 | DEF 2600
Cannot be targeted by an opponent's card effects. During either player's turn, when a Trap Card is activated: You can banish 1 "Kozmo" monster from your Graveyard; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card. If this card is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the Graveyard: You can banish this card from your Graveyard; add 1 Level 8 or lower "Kozmo" monster from your Deck to your hand.
SECRET RARE

                                        Rating: 3
Luckily it can be used as a standalone beatstick, which is enough to rate it 3 stars, even if activating its effects requires it to be with its friends.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN084
Effect Monster
Kozmo Delta Shuttle
DARK | Machine | Level 5 | ATK 2000 | DEF 2000
Once per turn: You can send 1 "Kozmo" monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, then target 1 face-up monster on the field; it loses ATK and DEF equal to the sent monster's Level x 100. If this card is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the Graveyard: You can banish this card from your Graveyard; Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower "Kozmo" monster from your Deck.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 2
You can easily achieve this card's first effect with Burden of the Mighty and all without having to do anything but activate the card, though this does let you replace it with one of its friends when it's destroyed.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN083
Effect Monster
Kozmo Soartroopers
DARK | Psychic | Level 3 | ATK 1000 | DEF 1000
During either player's turn: You can banish this card; Special Summon 1 Level 4 or higher "Kozmo" monster from your hand. You can only use this effect of "Kozmo Soartroopers" once per turn. Once per turn: You can pay 1000 LP, then target 1 Psychic-Type "Kozmo" monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it.

Kozmo Tincan
LIGHT | Psychic | Level 1 | ATK 0 | DEF 0
During either player's turn: You can banish this card; Special Summon 1 Level 2 or higher "Kozmo" monster from your hand. You can only use this effect of "Kozmo Tincan" once per turn. Once per turn, during the End Phase: You can pay 500 LP; reveal 3 "Kozmo" cards with different names from your Deck, your opponent randomly picks 1 for you to add to your hand, and you send the rest to the Graveyard.
ULTRA RARE

Not many good options exist but of the ones that do, this isn't so bad.

Trap Card
Ultimate Providence
Counter Trap
When a Spell/Trap Card, or monster effect, is activated: Discard the same type of card (Monster, Spell, or Trap); negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card.
SECRET RARE

                                        Rating: 3
Much more versatile than Magic Jammer, Seven Tools and Divine Wrath as it has the same cost as virtually all three of those without any additional requirements.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN080
Trap Card
Bad Luck Blast
Normal Trap
Target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; take damage equal to half its ATK, then inflict damage to your opponent, equal to the damage you took. If this card you control is destroyed by an opponent's card and sent to your Graveyard: Inflict 1000 damage to your opponent. You can only activate 1 "Bad Luck Blast" per turn.
SHORT PRINT COMMON

                                        Rating: 2
If it weren't for the last effect, this card would've gotten my lowest rating but still isn't worthy of being short printed.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN079
Trap Card
Solemn Strike
Counter Trap
When a monster(s) would be Special Summoned, or a monster effect is activated: Pay 1500 LP; negate the Summon or activation, and if you do, destroy that card.
SECRET RARE

                                        Rating: 1
Oh sure this can tackle Pendulum Summons but it's for 1500 LP and using it against an Effect Monster effect is pretty stupid when there are better options.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN078
Trap Card
Forbidden Apocrypha
Normal Trap
Declare 1 Extra Deck monster card type (Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz); if 2 or more monsters of the declared type are on the field, make each player send all monsters of that type from their field to the Graveyard.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 2
Regardless of what you choose, there needs to be two or more of that type on the field and that isn't very likely but if you succeed and don't have the required type on your field, then you don't lose anything.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN077
Trap Card
Pendulum Reborn
Normal Trap
Special Summon 1 face-up Pendulum Monster from your Extra Deck, or 1 Pendulum Monster from your Graveyard.
RARE

                                        Rating: 2
It could even bring back Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon as it's a Pendulum Monster too or any of the good D/D/D monsters but not much else is worth it.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN076
Trap Card
Quaking Mirror Force
Normal Trap
When an opponent's monster declares an attack: Change all Attack Position monsters your opponent controls to face-down Defense Position. Monsters changed to face-down Defense Position by this effect cannot change their battle positions.
ULTRA RARE

                                        Rating: 3
Even better than Book of Eclipse because while that card is a Spell Card that you can activate anytime, those monsters don't stay face-down for long and your opponent draws extra cards, whereas this card keeps them face-down.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN075
Trap Card
Shiranui Style Swallow's Slash
Normal Trap
Tribute 1 Zombie-Type monster, then target 2 cards on the field; destroy them, then banish 1 "Shiranui" monster from your Deck. You can only activate 1 "Shiranui Style Swallow's Slash" per turn.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 1
You could get the same result with Trap of the Imperial Tomb and you wouldn't have to banish any Shiranui monsters either.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN074
Trap Card
Majespecter Supercell
Continuous Trap
While you have a "Majespecter" card in your Pendulum Zone, the activation and effects of other "Majespecter" cards activated on your side of the field cannot be negated. Once per turn: You can target 5 "Majespecter" cards in your Graveyard; shuffle all 5 into the Deck, then draw 1 card.
SUPER RARE

                                        Rating: 2
Majespecters already can't be destroyed by card effects so this adds a bit more protection, not to mention returns any that didn't go to the Extra Deck back into your Deck and you get an extra card.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN073
Trap Card
Dinomist Rush
Normal Trap
Special Summon 1 "Dinomist" monster from your Deck, and if you do, it is unaffected by other cards' effects, also destroy it during the End Phase. You can only activate 1 "Dinomist Rush" per turn.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 1
Not even the good options will help you here because your new monster won't be around very long whether you use it or not.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN072
Trap Card
Destruction Sword Flash
Normal Trap
If you control a Fusion Monster that lists "Buster Blader" as Material: Banish all monsters your opponent controls. When a card or effect is activated that targets a "Buster Blader" monster(s) you control (except during the Damage Step): You can banish this card from your Graveyard; negate that effect, and if you do, destroy that card.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 2
At least Dark Paladin is worthwhile and is easier to Fusion Summon thanks to The Eye of Timaeus.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN071
Trap Card
Reject Reborn
Normal Trap
When an opponent's monster declares a direct attack: End the Battle Phase, then you can Special Summon 1 Tuner monster and 1 Synchro Monster from your Graveyard, but their effects are negated.
RARE

                                        Rating: 1
Call of the Haunted serves as a better monster revival card since it takes less time to activate and you can not only choose when you want to activate it but the monster you want to revive too.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN070
Trap Card
Follow Wing
Continuous Trap
Activate this card by targeting 1 Synchro Monster you control; it cannot be destroyed by battle or your opponent's card effects. At the start of the Damage Step, if it battles an opponent's Level 5 or higher monster: You can destroy that opponent's monster, and if you do, the targeted Synchro Monster gains ATK equal to the original ATK of the destroyed monster, until the end of this turn. When that monster leaves the field, destroy this card.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 2
With the right monster, you can somewhat create a lock on your opponent, though unless the Level 5+ monster is stronger, I don't see the point in destroying it early, even if to power it up because your opponent won't take any battle damage.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN069
Spell Card
Dragon's Bind
Continuous Trap
Activate this card by targeting 1 Dragon-Type monster you control with 2500 or less ATK and DEF; neither player can Special Summon monsters with ATK less than or equal to the original ATK of that monster. When that monster leaves the field, destroy this card.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 1
Even though this does prevent Special Summons equal or weaker than the affected monster, it's pointless because monsters stronger than it will render this card useless, especially since the affected monster gets no protection whatsoever.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN068
Spell Card
Mistaken Accusation
Quick-Play Spell
If your opponent has more total cards in their hand and their side of the field than you do: Target 1 face-up card on the field; neither player can activate cards with that name, or their effects, for the rest of this Duel, except that target. You can only activate 1 "Mistaken Accusation" per turn.
SHORT PRINT COMMON

                                        Rating: 1
Don't see why Sangan is in tears over this because even if he didn't commit any other crime, he still has powers that make him too good for tourmament play so he'd be there anyway. This card on the other hand, is not worth being short printed since both players are restrained to the choice for the remainder of the Duel so even if you get a powerful monster, if it's gone, you don't get any other monster effects that Duel and that could end in your defeat.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN067

Spell Card
Odd-Eyes Advent
Ritual Spell
This card can be used to Ritual Summon any Dragon-Type Ritual Monster from your hand or Graveyard. You must also Tribute Pendulum Monsters from your hand or field whose total Levels equal or exceed the Level of the Ritual Monster you Ritual Summon. If your opponent controls 2 or more monsters and you control no monsters, you can also send "Odd-Eyes" monsters from your Extra Deck to the Graveyard. You can only activate 1 "Odd-Eyes Advent" per turn.

Shiranui Style Synthesis
Field Spell
Once per turn, if you control no monsters: You can send 1 card from your hand to the Graveyard, then activate 1 of these effects.
● Target 1 Zombie-Type monster with 0 DEF in your Graveyard; Special Summon it.
● Target 1 of your banished Zombie-Type monsters with 0 DEF; return it to the Graveyard.
You can only activate 1 "Shiranui Style Synthesis" per turn.

Spell Card
Majespecter Sonics
Quick-Play Spell
Target 1 "Majespecter" monster you control; until the end of this turn, its ATK and DEF become double its current ATK and DEF, also any battle damage it inflicts to your opponent is halved.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 1
Doubling ATK does nothing if it only deals half the battle damage because if your monster's ATK is now 3000 and your opponent's monster is 1500, you're dealing only 750 damage to your opponent and you can deal more than that without even having to attack.
 
                                                      BOSH-EN063
Spell Card
Dinomist Charge
Continuous Spell
When this card is activated: Add 1 "Dinomist" monster from your Deck to your hand. Once per turn, if a "Dinomist" card(s) is added from the field to your Extra Deck face-up: Add 1 of those cards to your hand. You can only activate 1 "Dinomist Charge" per turn.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 2
You certainly have options from which to add to your hand from your Deck but I don't really know why you'd want to add one of your monsters that you could just Pendulum Summon from your Extra Deck anyway.

Spell Card
Dinomic Powerload
Field Spell
All "Dinomist" monsters on the field gain 300 ATK and DEF. If a "Dinomist" monster you control battles, your opponent cannot activate cards or effects until the end of the Damage Step.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 2
The ATK boost won't help much but the other effect will, especially if it's the very first one in this set.

Spell Card
Draco Face-Off
Quick-Play Spell
Reveal 1 "Dracoslayer" Pendulum Monster and 1 "Dracoverlord" Pendulum Monster from your Deck, your opponent randomly picks 1 of them for you to place in your Pendulum Zone or Special Summon (your choice), and you add the other card to your Extra Deck face-up. You can only activate 1 "Draco Face-Off" per turn.
COMMON

                                        Rating: 2
Either way you'll get a monster but since you'll have to choose one of each, you're not guaranteed the one you want and thus may lose out on the one you do want, not to mention be only halfway to Pendulum Summoning your Extra Deck's new recruit and you cannot play more than one copy of this per turn.

Target up to 3 monsters of the same Type in your opponent's Graveyard; banish them, and if you do, 1 "Buster Blader" monster or 1 "Destruction Sword" monster you control gains 500 ATK and DEF for each of those banished monsters, until the end of this turn. If this card is in your Graveyard: You can discard 1 "Destruction Sword" card; add this card to your hand. You can only use each effect of "Karma of the Destruction Swordsman" once per turn.

Not only do you need to have 3 monsters with the same Type in your Grave but your Buster Blader or Destruction Sword monster gains only a temporary ATK boost and there's no point in retrieving it because even with Decks that use only one monster Type, you're only hurting yourself.

Destruction Swordsman Fusion
Quick-Play Spell
Fusion Summon 1 Fusion Monster that lists "Buster Blader" as Material from your Extra Deck, using monsters from your hand or either side of the field as Fusion Materials. If this card is in your Graveyard: You can send 1 card from your hand to the Graveyard; add this card to your hand. You can only use each effect of "Destruction Swordsman Fusion" once per turn.

What makes this more useful over Polymerization? It lets you Fusion Summon from the same areas as that card and the only thing extra this card offers is a minimal retrieval, which probably won't do much since you're not always going to have the Fusion Materials to use.

Hi-Speed Re-Level
Normal Spell
Banish 1 "Speedroid" monster from your Graveyard, then target 1 Synchro Monster you control; until the end of this turn, change its Level to the banished monster's Level, and it gains ATK equal to that monster's Level x 500.

                                        Rating: 1
Your efforts are pretty well wasted because your affected Synchro gets a temporary ATK and Level boost and you're then out one resource to revive later on.

Not sure you could use it if only your opponent has occupied Pendulum Zones but either way, it won't do you much good since those Pendulum Monsters aren't truly gone so the only thing you'll really get out of this is what you can just as easily get with MST.

                                        Rating: 1
Returning cards to the hand is just a lame stall tactic because you know those cards are coming back unless they're Extra Deck or other hard-to-summon monsters, and even then, Decks today could easily bring the Extra Deck monsters right back, not to mention this only works if you control Performapals.

During either player's turn: You can banish 1 random face-down monster from your opponent's Extra Deck, face-up, and if you do, this card's ATK becomes equal to the banished monster's. During either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 of your opponent's banished Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Monsters; return it to the Extra Deck, and if you do, destroy 1 monster your opponent controls with the same monster card type (Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz). You can only use each effect of "Aegaion the Sea Castrum" once per turn.

It too can be quite a powerhouse but that's a game of chance because it could have 3000 ATK, or be the likes of Number 17 and have only 2000 ATK and once it obtains that ATK, it won't gain anymore no matter how many of your opponent's Extra Deck monsters you banish. At least it also has 3000 DEF for your efforts, though you can just as easily use Labyrinth Wall or Millennium Shield for that.

If this card on the field is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 of your banished Zombie-Type monsters with 0 DEF; return it to the Graveyard.

If this card is banished: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; it loses 500 ATK. You can only Special Summon "Shiranui Samuraisaga(s)" once per turn.

                                        Rating: 2
It's perhaps an okay substitute until you can obtain/bring out Archfiend Zombie Skull but it relies on banished Zombies to even get started, let alone drain an opponent's monster of 500 ATK, which is pretty well meaningless in today's metagame.

Once per turn, during your opponent's turn: You can target 1 "Buster Blader" monster you control; equip it with 1 "Destruction Sword" monster from your Graveyard (this is a Quick Effect).

It'll need to be in Defense Mode unless you can swap its ATK and DEF but you can get a Buster Blader to join you and it'll be powered up by at least 500 unless they're defenseless, not to mention you'll get to attach it with a used up Destruction Sword monster but both monsters have to be in the Graveyard for you to even get that far so otherwise, you'll just have this guy to defend your LP.

● Take control of 1 face-up monster your opponent controls.

This one will let you choose the monster you take and that can really help, especially since that monster can be an Xyz Monster too, giving you access to that monster's effects and which ever you choose you get to keep but apart from that, it doesn't get stronger for long and will likely not gain much ATK anyway.

Sad thing is, Big Ben Kei is actually better because you can search it out with Giant Rat and Sangan and it has higher DEF, which means higher damage, and this guy also despises Spells and Traps in your Graveyard because he needs your Graveyard to be void of them to gain the DEF boost.

Pendulum Monster Cards in your Monster Zones and Pendulum Zones cannot be destroyed by battle or your opponent's card effects. Once per turn: You can Special Summon 1 "Dracoslayer" Pendulum Monster from your hand or Graveyard, but it cannot be used as a Fusion Material.

This card gains 1000 ATK and DEF for each Dragon-Type monster your opponent controls or is in their Graveyard. Change all Dragon-Type monsters your opponent controls to Defense Position, also Dragon-Type monsters in your opponent's possession cannot activate their effects. If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent.

I was on the verge of giving this "emperor" two stars but when I read that last line of text, I dropped off a star because you need two very specific Fusion Materials just to bring it out and with Goyo Guardian now legal for tournaments again and being MUCH easier to bring out to achieve the same goal, I don't see why you'd need to waste Extra Deck space with this.

He's got one shot to protect one of his conmrades from danger and doesn't have the stats to do it in battle and neither does his effect but his Pendulum Monster status will make sure he won't go away easily.

He's got enough ATK for a standalone beatstick no negative side-effect for using him as such and is a Pendulum Monster with a low enough scale but that 0 DEF is all that is needed to take a star off of his rating.

If combined with Buster Destruction Sword, this'll further limit your opponent's options but it's not a Tuner and won't help you all that much since sending itself while equipped is going to allow your opponent to counter equipping the retrieved Destruction Sword monster.

A Tuner that at least makes Buster Blader easier to Summon, though it'd be better if it Special Summoned from the Deck too and using the other bulleted effect isn't all that great either.

It's in the same rarity as its cousin from back when Pharaoh's Servant released but has traded ATK gain for an ability to arm itself with an opponent's destroyed monster or send its attached monster to the Graveyard and rid your opponent's field of their monsters matching the sent monster's Type but it isn't really that great overall because even the original is more likely to take this guy out. The only saving grace is that it counts as Buster Blader while on the field or in the Graveyard.

Playing her as a Monster Card is pointless since her ATK and DEF are too low, unless you're desperate enough to get a Tribute Summon underway and by discarding her, you'll basically have a second Honest and you can even apply the effect if by chance you do need her on the field and have a 2nd copy in your hand.

Higher DEF than Magnet and you wouldn't want to Normal Summon or Flip Summon it anyway with its 100 ATK but at the same time, the other effect isn't all that great either, even if it protects itself from destruction for a turn, especially since you don't regain the battle damage you took.

It's really little more than a mediocre Tuner monster because activating its first effect requres your Pendulum Zones to be occupied by Magician Pendulums and even when you do, you'll have to get her back once she's banished. Her second effect is downright pitiful because although it's not much, you're hurting yourself and giving your opponent free LP.

It's pretty weak and although Pendulum Monsters do appear, they mostly appear as their Spell Card selves so this guy isn't going to get to battle all that many and even if it does, it has only 1600 ATK to attack with and most regular monsters can take it out with ease, leaving its 2600 DEF your best option if you choose to use this.
