Praised Yu-Gi-Oh Cards (Page 1)

Cards below have been recreated with humorous names and card text to reflect my actual views on them.
The Ultimate Revival
Normal Spell
Bring back your most treasured member of the team.
Comments Much like Pot of Greed below, this card is incredibly one-sided and has only recently returned to tournaments.
Free Fortune
Normal Spell
Get exactly what you want when you want it.
Comments It can instantly decide a Duel's outcome with 2 free cards and no drawbacks as all.
Demon of Ultimate Pain and Suffering
DARK / Fiend / Level 12 / ATK 0 / DEF 0
Its ultimate form gives you the power to strike down your opposition one by one and weaken your enemy leader's strength.
Comments While perhaps somewhat weaker in terms of effect, the effect is also not restricted responding to one player's actions.
Demon of Greater Pain and Suffering
DARK / Fiend / Level 11 / ATK 0 / DEF 0
When its first form goes down, its 2nd replaces it with the power to wipe out your entire opposition each turn without any maintenance.
Comments Just by Yubel being destroyed, she unleashes a very powerful 2nd version with a Dark Hole-like effect each turn and you don't have to do anything in return.
Storm of Destruction
Quick-Play Spell
Enemy threats don't stand a chance when this storm blows them away.
Comments Even to this day, there's really nothing that compares to it (that is still legal anyway).
Goddess of Broken Rules
Quick-Play Spell
No need to wait for your opposition to strike back when you can have a 2nd turn to beat them first.
Comments It's one of the few cards capable of skipping your opponent's turn but it also goes straight to your Battle Phase and it's Quick-Play.
Demon of Pain and Suffering
DARK / Fiend / Level 10 / ATK 0 / DEF 0
Its ATK and DEF symbolize its complete lack of remorse as your opposition suffers turn after turn without any end in sight.
Comments She's always going to be considered worthwhile given that she's viable in any Deck with plenty of uses.
Warwolf of Ultimate Strength
EARTH / Beast-Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 2000 / DEF 100
Watch out for this beast's power punches or you won't live to tell about it.

Comments It was the very first Level 4 Normal Monster to have 2000 ATK and we've had plenty more ever since.
Unlimited Revival
Continuous Trap
Fool your opposition into thinking your efforts are wasted and then prove them wrong with your monster's 2nd chance at victory.
Comments What can I say? It can revive any monster whose ATK is 1000 or less, including high-Level ones and some can benefit greatly from the side-effect. It can also be activated any time after the turn you Set it.
Shackles of Doom
Equip Spell
No opposition is too strong to wield the shackles that leave them a feeble twig.
Comments I don't know why people waste time with cards like Forbidden Dress when this renders them unable to attack and have pretty much no ATK without having to wait and it's permanent.
The 32nd Terror of the Deep
WATER / Sea Serpent-Type Xyz / Rank 4 / ATK 2800 / DEF 2100
3 Level 4 monsters
Revive your opposition over and over with less strength to defend with so that you can dish out more damage where it really matters.
Comments Still one of the best Xyz Monsters to date because the effect is well worth requiring 3 Xyz Materials.
The Great Cyclopse Knight from the Grave
DARK / Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 1600 / DEF 1200
His downfall leads to your victory as you will be able to bypass traditional rules and spring traps when your opposition least expects it.
Comments The anime made it rather weak, especially since it didn't bypass activation costs but the TCG made it too powerful and it got banned.
Egypt's Ruler of the Ground
DIVINE / Divine-Beast / Level 10 / ATK 4000 / DEF 4000
No opposition can stand in its way as just two losses of your own clears the way to victory.
Comments It was only slightly nerfed from the anime but it was nowhere near as bad as Ra, which makes it ideal in just about any Duel.
Egypt's Ruler of the Sky
DIVINE / Divine-Beast / Level 10 / ATK ? / DEF ?
With two mouths, it'll be the talk of your army, espcially when its nearly unstoppable strength takes all the opposition down, whether they're ready or not.
Comments Three Tributes to bring this card out isn't much of a drawback when it can obtain virtually limitless ATK, weaken any monster your opponent summons by 2000 points and even destroy it withouyt having to attack.
Supercharged Knight
Equip Spell
The opposition doesn't stand a chance when your warrior obtains the ultimate shield.
Comments Just about any monster you equip it to will get a major ATK or DEF boost, including the likes of Big Shield Gardna.
Reflection of Destruction
Normal Trap
Have the opposition check themselves in the mirror before sending them to their doom.
Comments This card seems to have been neglected in tournaments even though it's still one of the most powerful cards to date.
Invincible Hole of Darkness
Normal Spell
Even mankind isn't capable of wielding such power. Use it on everyone to reset the field.
Comments It's less one-sided than Dark Hole but only if you have monsters out and most people wait until they don't before using it.
Super-Charged Lightning Bolt
Normal Spell
No army is too big to tear down. Use this and wipe them all out for free.
Comments It's still the most one-sided card ever created for the game and it baffles me why it's not only legal for tournament play but no one is using it.
Thousand-Eyes Snatcher
DARK / Spellcaster-Type Fusion / Level 1 / ATK 0 / DEF 0
"Single-Eyes Watcher" +"Single-Eyes Snatcher"
Need a powerful monster but don't have one? Take one of your opponent's and this guy will obtain its ATK and DEF. Or you can sit back and let this guy lock out your opponent's attacks for free.
Comments I'll never understand why it was unbanned when the whole reason it was banned was mostly because of its effect.
Archetype Exterminator
WATER / Aqua / Level 4 / ATK 1600 / DEF 1000
Facing down an army of look-a-likes? We can help! Just ditch a card from your hand and they're gone!
Comments If it weren't banned, I'd be using it constantly.
