                                                               LVAL-EN099
Effect Monster

Starship Spy Plane
WIND | Machine |
Level 4 | ATK 1100 | DEF 500
If your opponent controls a face-up Xyz Monster, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand). When this card is Special Summoned from the hand: Target 1 Spell/Trap Card your opponent controls; return that target to the hand.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 1
Terrible stats and bad effect.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN098
Effect Monster

Interplanetarypurplythorny Beast
DARK | Beast | Level 5 | ATK 1100 | DEF 2200
When a monster you control is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, while this card is in the Graveyard: You can Special Summon this card from your Graveyard. If Summoned this way, banish this card when it leaves the field. You can only use the effect of "Interplanetarypurplythorny Beast" once per turn.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 1
It'll only come back once unless you use Imperial Iron Wall and even then, that's just one combo and not enough to make this card worthwhile.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN097
Effect Monster

Dododo Buster
EARTH | Warrior | Level 6 | ATK 1900 | DEF 800
If your opponent controls a monster and you control no monsters, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand). If Summoned this way, its Level becomes 4. When this card is Tribute Summoned: You can target 1 "Dododo" monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that target in face-up Defense Position.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
Typical Cyber Dragon-like effect but it becomes Level 4 and Tribute Summoning it is only a somewhat good play as it can bring back another copy of itself to make for a Rank 6 Xyz Summon.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN096
Synchro Monster

Mighty Warrior
EARTH | Warrior-Type Synchro | Level 6 | ATK 2200 | DEF 2000
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
If this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle: Inflict damage to your opponent equal to half the destroyed monster's original ATK.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
A weaker but easier-to-Summon Elemental HERO Flame Wingman that can be Special Summoned other ways but it isn't hard to overcome 2200 ATK these days and it does still take two Synchro Materials for a Level 6 monster.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN095
Effect Monster

Alpacaribou, Mystical Beast of the Forest
EARTH | Beast | Level 7 | ATK 2700 | DEF 2100
● While in Attack Position: Attack Position Winged Beast, Insect and Plant-Type monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle.
● While in Defense Position: Defense Position Winged Beast, Insect and Plant-Type monsters you control cannot be targeted by, or be destroyed by, card effects.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
Certain monsters will be protected by this guy depending on his battle position but the monster itself isn't even included, making him easy pray for much of the cards out there.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN094
Effect Monster

Snapdragon
EARTH | Plant | Level 2 | ATK 300 | DEF 100
When this card is sent to the Graveyard: Banish 1 random card from your opponent's hand, until the End Phase. You can only use the effect of "Snapdragon" once per turn.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 1
It makes Lightforce Sword look good and that card is harder to activate than this!
 
                                                               LVAL-EN093
Effect Monster

Rose Witch
EARTH | Plant | Level 4 | ATK 1600 | DEF 1000
This card can be treated as 2 Tributes for the Tribute Summon of a Plant-Type monster.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
She'll help with the previous card or for Summoning other high-Level Plants like Tytannial but literally that's it.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN092
Effect Monster

Queen Angel of Roses
EARTH | Plant | Level 7 | ATK 2400 | DEF 1300
You can Tribute Summon this card in face-up Attack Position by Tributing 1 Plant-Type monster. Once per turn, during your Standby Phase: Destroy the 1 face-up monster on the field with the lowest ATK (your choice, if tied).
(Super Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
Her stats are pretty poor for a Level 7 monster but until she's alone, she can help get rid of threats on the field.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN091
Effect Monster

Swordsman from a Distant Land
EARTH | Warrior | Level 1 | ATK 250 | DEF 250
If this card attacked an opponent's monster, after damage calculation: Destroy that monster during the 5th End Phase after the attack.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 1
He should've stayed in that distant land as he's too feeble and unplayable to last on the field and his effect will not resolve 99.9% of the time.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN090
Effect Monster

Dark Artist
DARK | Fiend | Level 3 | ATK 600 | DEF 1400
If this card is being attacked by a LIGHT monster, its DEF is halved during damage calculation only.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 1
Art is interpreted differently from person to person but cards like this are easily identified as bad.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN089
Trap Card

The First Monarch
Continuous Trap
Special Summon this card as an Effect Monster (Fiend-Type/DARK/Level 6/ATK 1000/DEF 2400). (This card is also still a Trap Card.) If Summoned this way: You can discard 1 card, then declare 1 Attribute; this card becomes that Attribute, and can be treated as 2 Tributes for the Tribute Summon of a monster with the same Attribute as this card. While this card is treated as a monster, you cannot Special Summon monsters, except monsters with this card’s Attribute.
(Secret Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 3
It not only serves as a wall between your opponent's monsters and your Life Points but it also is quite useful for Xyz, Synchro and Tribute Summons, whether the second effect is applied or not.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN088
Spell Card

Obedience Schooled
Normal Spell
If you control no monsters: Special Summon 3 Level 2 or lower Beast-Type Effect Monsters with different names from your Deck. Their effects are negated, and they are destroyed during the End Phase. If you activate this card, you cannot Special Summon for the rest of this turn, except Beast-Type monsters.
(Super Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
There are some limited options to choose from with this and even if you need no monsters to activate this, you can then do what you will with the new monsters but they're destroyed during the End Phase and don't get their effects.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN087
Synchro Monster

Powered Inzektron
LIGHT | Machine-Type Synchro | Level 6 | ATK 2500 | DEF 1600
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
When this card is Synchro Summoned: This turn, this card cannot be destroyed by battle or by card effects, also you take no damage.
(Super Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 1
The first line of text after the Synchro Materials line ruins the entire card as it would otherwise make you unable to take any kind of damage and virtually guarantee that this guy stayed on the field, not to mention this guy's stats and its compatibility with Honest.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN086
Effect Monster

Gwenhwyfar, Queen of Noble Arms
LIGHT | Spellcaster | Level 2 | ATK 300 | DEF 300
You can target 1 "Noble Knight" monster you control; equip this card from your hand or Graveyard to that target. You can only use this effect of "Gwenhwyfar, Queen of Noble Arms" once per turn. The equipped monster gains 300 ATK. Apply the appropriate effect, depending on the Attribute of the equipped monster.
● LIGHT: If the equipped monster would be destroyed by a card effect, you can destroy this card instead.
● DARK: If the equipped monster battles an opponent's monster, at the start of the Damage Step: You can destroy that monster, then destroy this card.
(Secret Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 1
She's trying to pose as a Union monster for her Noble comrades but I see right through her failed attempt as she only protects her target from destruction and provides the target with a mere 300 ATK.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN085
Effect Monster

Noble Knight Perdur
LIGHT | Warrior | Level 4 | ATK 1900 | DEF 300
While equipped with a "Noble Arms" Equip Spell Card, this card becomes DARK and its Level is increased by 1. When this card is sent to the Graveyard while equipped with a "Noble Arms" Equip Spell Card: Target 1 "Noble Arms" card in your Graveyard; add that target to your hand.
(Super Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 4
An Honest target and a Beatstick! Perfect with its friends, Warrior or Beatdown!
 
                                                               LVAL-EN084
Effect Monster

Gravekeeper's Heretic
DARK | Spellcaster | Level 4 | ATK 1800 | DEF 1500
This card on the field is unaffected by all other card effects, as long as "Necrovalley" is also on the field.
(Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 3
A good regular Beatstick or a powerful Beatstick in Gravekeeper's Decks!
 
                                                               LVAL-EN083
Effect Monster

Bujingi Pavo
LIGHT | Winged Beast | Level 4 | ATK 1700 | DEF 800
When a Beast Warrior-Type "Bujin" monster you control is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard: You can send this card from your hand to the Graveyard; Special Summon 1 "Bujin" monster from your Deck. You can only use the effect of "Bujingi Pavo" once per turn.
(Super Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
You end up losing 2 Bujin monsters (including this guy when you discard him) but you replace them with one from your Deck but I don't see why that should make this guy Super Rare, especially since you can't use more than one copy's effect per turn and only works when you lose a Beast-Warrior-Type Bujin.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN082
Effect Monster

Ghostrick Yeti
DARK | Zombie | Level 3 | ATK 300 | DEF 2000
Cannot be Normal Summoned, unless you control a "Ghostrick" monster. Once per turn: You can change this card to face-down Defense Position. When this card is flipped face-up: You can target 1 "Ghostrick" monster on the field; this turn, it cannot be destroyed by battle or by card effects.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
2000 DEF will give it a better chance at being face-up for your next turn and allows another of your Ghostricks (or itself) to survive destruction that turn.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN081
Effect Monster

Sylvan Mikorange
WATER | Plant | Level 3 | ATK 400 | DEF 1100
When this card you control is destroyed by your opponent's card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent to your Graveyard: You can excavate the top card of your Deck, and if it is a Plant-Type monster, send it to the Graveyard. Otherwise, place it on the bottom of your Deck. If this card is excavated from the Deck and sent to the Graveyard by a card effect: All Plant-Type monsters you currently control gain 300 ATK and DEF.
(Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
The rating comes only from the first effect as the second is not remotely good.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN080
Trap Card

Duston Roller
Normal Trap
Target 1 monster on the field; this turn, it cannot be Tributed, or be used as a Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz Material for a Summon. If this Set card you control is destroyed by your opponent's card effect and sent to your Graveyard: You can add 1 "Duston" monster from your Deck to your hand.
(Short Print Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
Most of the time, only the first effect will be used, if that and when it is, that monster is staying on the field, which is good and bad for the player.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN079
Trap Card

Oath of Companionship
Normal Trap
If you control no monsters that were Special Summoned from the Extra Deck: Target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls that was Special Summoned from the Extra Deck; take control of it until the End Phase. You cannot Special Summon during the turn you activate this card.
(Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
Most monsters these days are Special Summoned from the Extra Deck and you get to take one of them for free but only for that turn and you don't get to Special Summon that turn.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN078
Trap Card

Skill Prisoner
Normal Trap
Target 1 card you control; this turn, when any monster effect resolves that targeted that card at activation, negate that effect. During either player's turn, except the turn this card was sent to the Graveyard: You can banish this card from your Graveyard, then target 1 card you control; this turn, when any monster effect resolves that targeted that card at activation, negate that effect.
(Super Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
It can save one of your cards from destruction or other harm but it's only against monster effects but at least the second effect can be used during either player's turn.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN077
Trap Card

The Monarchs Awaken
Normal Trap
If you have no cards in your Extra Deck: Target 1 face-up Tribute Summoned monster you control; its effects are negated, also it is unaffected by the effects of cards other than this card.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
Your high-Level monster loses its effects but then is not harmed by anything else except battle, which isn't bad but the monster must've been Tribute Summoned first and your Extra Deck must be empty.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN076
Trap Card

Imperial Tombs of Necrovalley
Counter Trap
When a Spell Card, Trap Card, or monster effect is activated, while both a "Gravekeeper's" monster and "Necrovalley" are on the field: Negate the activation, and if you do, destroy it. You can only activate 1 "Imperial Tombs of Necrovalley" per turn.
(Secret Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
In exchange for needing a Gravekeeper's monster and Necrovalley on the field, you stop whatever card effect is being activated and destroy that card but you can only activate 1  per turn and even if you could play more than one, it's restricted to Gravekeeper's Decks.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN075
Trap Card

Bujin Regalia - The Jewel
Normal Trap
Target 1 Rank 4 Xyz Monster you control; equip this card to that target. It gains 300 ATK for each Xyz Material attached to it. Once per turn, while this card is equipped to a monster by this effect: You can attach 1 "Bujin" monster from your hand to the equipped monster as an Xyz Material.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
It'll make your Rank 4 Xyz Monster stronger but to go beyond that, you'll need Bujin monsters and it's restricted to Rank 4 Xyz Monsters.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN074
Trap Card

Ghostrick-Go-Round
Continuous Trap
Once per turn, during the Battle Phase: You can activate 1 of these effects.
● Target 1 "Ghostrick" monster you control; change that target to face-down Defense Position, and if you do, change 1 face-down Defense Position monster your opponent controls to face-up Attack Position.
● Target 1 face-down Defense Position monster you control; change that target to face-up Attack Position, and if is a "Ghostrick" monster, change 1 face-up monster your opponent controls to face-down Defense Position.
(Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
It's mostly for Ghostricks to reset themselves and reveal any hidden threat your opponent has but that can be good and bad in both cases.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN073
Trap Card

Sylvan Blessing
Normal Trap
Place 1 card from your hand on either the top or bottom of the Deck, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "Sylvan" monster from your hand or Graveyard. It is unaffected by other card effects this turn. Place it on either the top or bottom of the Deck during the End Phase.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
Running this in a Sylvan Deck isn't all that bad as this card doesn't ask for much to bring out the Sylvan monster or be specific about the Sylvan monster that you can bring out but if you don't do something with it, it goes back to your Deck during the End Phase.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN072
Trap Card

Purge Ray
Normal Trap
Tribute 1 Xyz Monster; during the End Phase, Special Summon from your Extra Deck, 1 "Number" monster with the same Type, but 1 Rank lower, as the Tributed monster had when it was on the field.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 1
I lose an Xyz Monster and have to wait until the End Phase and get a weaker Number monster with a lower Rank. Literally worse than Xyz Shift!
 
                                                               LVAL-EN071
Trap Card

Release, Reverse, Burst
Normal Trap
Tribute 1 "Utopia" monster; destroy all Set Spell and Trap Cards your opponent controls.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 1
Release Restraint Wave is actually better than this since it just asks for an Equip Spell Card on your field to go with your opponent's face down cards and is a Spell Card.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN070
Spell Card

Shared Ride
Quick-Play Spell
After this card resolves, each time your opponent adds a card(s) from their Deck or Graveyard to their hand this turn, except by drawing them, you immediately draw 1 card. You can only activate 1 "Shared Ride" per turn.
(Secret Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
It can help you draw cards needed to stop cards from being added to the hand like Thunder King Rai-Oh but it's only for one turn. It'd be better if it wasn't just for that turn.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN069
Spell Card

Stand-Off
Normal Spell
Target 1 face-up Attack Position Effect Monster on each side of the field; if both monsters are still face-up on the field, negate their effects, then if both their effects were negated by this effect, as long as those monsters are in face-up Attack Position, they cannot be destroyed by battle, are unaffected by other card effects, also they cannot attack or change their battle positions.
(Short Print Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
If you can add other cards into the mix like Mask of Restrict to prevent tributing the other monster, then this isn't bad but this has a fair bit to be met before anything can take hold so I don't see why it's a short-print card.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN068
Spell Card

Xyz Overrride
Field Spell
If an Xyz Monster on the field would activate its effect by detaching its own Xyz Material(s), its controller can banish 1 card from their hand face-down instead of detaching 1 of those Xyz Materials. Each player can only use this effect once per turn.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
If you can afford to banish a card, you'll get an extra use out of your Xyz Monster but both players can use it and only once per turn.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN067
Spell Card

Onomatopaira
Normal Spell
You can only activate 1 "Onomatopaira" per turn. Send 1 card from your hand to the Graveyard; add up to 2 of these monsters from your Deck to your hand (you cannot add 2 from the same category).
● 1 "Zubaba" monster
● 1 "Gagaga" monster
● 1 "Gogogo" monster
● 1 "Dododo" monster
(Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
You can't pick two from one category but it can help if you run a few of each and therefore can have extra options in your hand.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN066
Spell Card

Hidden Temples of Necrovalley
Continuous Spell
Activate only if both a "Gravekeeper's" monster and "Necrovalley" are on the field. Neither player can Special Summon monsters, except "Gravekeeper's" monsters. If either a "Gravekeeper's" monster or "Necrovalley" is not on the field, destroy this card.
(Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
While on the field, this card is quite the threat with Necrovalley, that is if in a Gravekeeper's Deck but it can also work against you if you aren't running a Gravekeeper's Deck and your opponent is and all benefits disappear if you lose Necrovalley or control no Gravekeeper's monsters.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN065
Spell Card

Bujinunity
Normal Spell
If you control no other cards and have at least 1 other card in your hand: Shuffle all Beast-Warrior-Type "Bujin" monsters from your Graveyard into the Deck (min. 1), and if you do, send your entire hand to the Graveyard (min. 1), then you can add up to 3 Beast-Warrior-Type "Bujin" monsters with different names from your Deck to your hand. You can only activate 1 "Bujinunity" per turn.
(Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 1
You have to give up more than what you get to add back so I don't think even Rare is the right rarity for this card, especially since you can only activate one copy per turn.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN064
Spell Card

Ghostrick Museum
Field Spell
Monsters you control, except "Ghostrick" monsters, cannot attack. Monsters cannot attack face-down Defense Position monsters, but can attack directly if all monsters their opponent controls are face-down Defense Position. At the end of the Damage Step, change any monster that inflicted battle damage to a player during this battle to face-down Defense Position.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
Although there's a negative side to you if you run this in a non-Ghostrick monster Deck, that downside doesn't exist in a Ghostrick Deck and even though you may take direct damage, this opens up plays like Battle Fader as well.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN063
Spell Card

Mount Sylvania
Field Spell
You can send 1 Plant-Type monster from your hand or face-up from your side of the field to the Graveyard; choose 1 "Sylvan" card from your Deck and place it on top of the Deck. You can only use this effect of "Mount Sylvania" once per turn. Once per turn, during your opponent's End Phase: You can excavate the top card of your Deck, and if it is a Plant-Type monster, send it to the Graveyard. Otherwise, place it on either the top or bottom of your Deck.
(Super Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 2
It helps to create better accuracy for you to trigger your Sylvan monsters' effects and isn't limited to Sylvan Plant-Type monsters with either effect and if you get it wrong with the second effect, you get to choose where it goes.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN062
Spell Card

Luminous Dragon Ritual
Ritual Spell
This card is used to Ritual Summon "Paladin of Photon Dragon". You must also Tribute monsters from your hand or field whose total Levels equal exactly 4. You can banish this card from your Graveyard; banish monsters from your Graveyard whose total Levels equal exactly 4, and Special Summon 1 "Paladin of Photon Dragon" from your hand after that. (This Special Summon is treated as a Ritual Summon.)
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 2
It gives you two ways to bring out Paladin of Photon Dragon, which is more than most Ritual Spells give but that second way forces you to banish itself and monsters with Levels totaling exactly 4 and the first also has you Tribute monsters with Levels equal to 4 but nevertheless, it's just as needed for the Ritual Summon as Paladin of Photon Dragon itself.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN061
Spell Card

Xyz Shift
Normal Spell
Tribute 1 Xyz Monster; Special Summon from your Extra Deck, 1 monster with the same Type, Attribute, and Rank as that Tributed monster had on the field, but with a different name, and if you do, attach this card to it as an Xyz Material. During the End Phase, send it to the Graveyard. You can only activate 1 "Xyz Shift" per turn.
(Common)

                                                              
Rating: 1
Why would I bother to change my Xyz Monster if I was going to lose it and everything attached to it during the End Phase?
 
                                                               LVAL-EN060
Spell Card

Rank-Down-Magic Numeron Fall
Normal Spell
Target 1 "Utopia" monster you control; Special Summon from your Extra Deck, 1 "Utopia" monster with a lower Rank than that monster you control, by using it as the Xyz Material. (This Special Summon is treated as an Xyz Summon. Xyz Materials attached to it also become Xyz Materials on the Summoned monster.) The monster Xyz Summoned by this effect gains this effect.
● If this card attacks, or is attacked by an opponent's monster, the opponent's monster's effects are negated during the Battle Phase only.
(Rare)

                                                              
Rating: 1
More like Numeron FAIL as the only decent Utopia monster that exists right now is Roots and it's easier to Summon than doing this. Plus for what you've done, all this does is negate the other monster's effects. It doesn't stop your opponent from responding to the attack.
 
                                                               LVAL-EN059
Spell Card

A real downer for sure as while she gains 200 per Xyz Material she has and you can use a Rank 3 or less Xyz Monster to bring her out, she loses 1 Xyz Material each time she battles and the only thing that even tries to make up for it is the fact that she deals piercing battle damage.

Don't get too excited about him as he has to wait for specific conditions to wipe out all other cards on the field but even after that's done, your opponent cannot take damage, which defeats the purpose of using the effect in the first place!

He's the tricky one to keep on the field thanks to his 0 DEF but if you do, you'll get up to two additional Ghostricks to join you but can't Special Summon non-DARK monsters.

2000 DEF ensures it won't likely be destroyed in the first attack and therefore will activate 1 or more of its effects but those effects are sub-par at best.

It comes with some somewhat decent effects like making the ATK of the monster responsible for its destruction in battle 0 and stopping 1 Spell or Trap Card from being activated this turn or activated in response to the effect but it has to get taken out in battle for the better part of the effect to resolve and must be banished from your Graveyard to activate the second part.

Unlike Sentinel, this guy has a few combos up his sleeve as he's not specific to any ATK he needs to see before being Special Summoned as long as it's at least 2000 and while he comes out his way in Defense Mode and has no DEF, he can power up your Xyz Monster at least 500 ATK.
