ARC-V Manga Volume 1
YA01-EN001
Odd-Eyes Phantom Dragon
DARK / Dragon-Type Pendulum / Level 7 / ATK 2500 / DEF 2000 / Scale 4
Once per turn, when an attack is declared involving a face-up monster you control and an opponent's monster, if you have an "Odd-Eyes" card in your other Pendulum Zone: You can make that monster you control gain 1200 ATK until the end of the Battle Phase (even if this card leaves the field).
When this Pendulum Summoned card inflicts battle damage to your opponent by attacking: You can inflict damage to your opponent equal to the number of "Odd-Eyes" cards in your Pendulum Zones x 1200. You can only use this effect of "Odd-Eyes Phantom Dragon" once per turn.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It can give a monster a pretty decent boost or deal a fair bit amount of damage but both effects require Odd-Eyes monsters in your Pendulum Zones and this guy isn't any stronger than the original Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon, nor does it have a higher/lower scale than that monster.
The Dark Side of Dimensions Movie Pack Gold Edition
MVP1-ENGV2
Krystal Dragon
LIGHT / Dragon / Level 6 / ATK 2500 / DEF 1000
Once per turn, during your Battle Step, if this card battled this turn: You can add 1 Level 8 Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to your hand.
GOLD SECRET RARE
Rating: 4
Comments: A beatstick strong enough to match Summoned Skull and take down any of the original Monarchs, not to mention allow grab any Level 8 Dragon-Type monster from your Deck.
MVP1-ENGV1
Duza the Meteor Cubic Vessel
LIGHT / Machine / Level 4 / ATK 1600 / DEF 1600
If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can send 1 "Cubic" card from your Deck to the Graveyard. Once per turn, during either player's turn, if a monster was sent to your Graveyard this turn while this card was face-up on the field: You can make this card gain 200 ATK for each monster with a different name in your Graveyard, until the end of this turn.
GOLD SECRET RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Another Cubic monster but this one adds to the puddle of monsters in the archetype that can be Normal Summoned/Set. The first effect isn't too specific as it can send a copy of itself to the Grave, and thus activate the 2nd effect, which is alright but doesn't last long.
Shonen Jump
JUMP-EN079
Odd-Eyes Persona Dragon
DARK / Dragon-Type Pendulum / Level 5 / ATK 1200 / DEF 2400 / Scale 1
Once per turn, during the End Phase, if your opponent activated a card or effect this turn that targeted exactly 1 "Odd-Eyes" Pendulum Monster you controlled (and no other cards) while this card was in your Pendulum Zone: Special Summon this card, and if you do, place 1 face-up "Odd-Eyes" Pendulum Monster from your Extra Deck in your Pendulum Zone, except "Odd-Eyes Persona Dragon".
Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can target 1 face-up monster on the field that was Special Summoned from the Extra Deck; it has its effects negated, until the end of this turn.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: The Pendulum Text restrains the effect to protect Odd-Eyes Pendulum Monsters but there are a few to pick from, though the other effect isn't that great either and neither are its stats.
Legendary Decks II
LDK2-ENS06
Eternal Soul
Continuous Trap
Every "Dark Magician" in your Monster Zone is unaffected by your opponent's card effects. If this face-up card leaves the field: Destroy all monsters you control. You can only use the following effect of "Eternal Soul" once per turn. You can activate 1 of these effects;
● Special Summon 1 "Dark Magician" from your hand or Graveyard.
● Add 1 "Dark Magic Attack" or "Thousand Knives" from your Deck to your hand.
SECRET RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: The 2nd effect is probably not worthwhile since both cards are pretty situational but the 1st effect will bring back Dark Magician constantly and this card will help protect it but has a steep consequence if it gets destroyed.
LDK2-ENS05
Dark Burning Magic
Quick-Play Spell
If you control monsters whose original names are "Dark Magician" and "Dark Magician Girl": Destroy all cards your opponent controls.
SECRET RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: This prevents you from altering a card's name to make it more likely that you'll have the necessary monsters out but once you get them out, you won't have to worry about that many hidden surprises if you're successful.
LDK2-ENS04
Dark Burning Attack
Normal Spell
If you control a "Dark Magician Girl" monster: Destroy all face-up monsters your opponent controls.
SECRET RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Though Dark Magician Girl is one of my favorite monsters, she's not very strong for a Level 6 monster and you won't necessarily be able to use Pendulum Summoning to make that any easier.
Shonen Jump
JUMP-EN078
Masked HERO Blast
WIND / Warrior-Type Fusion / Level 6 / ATK 2200 / DEF 1800
Must be Special Summoned with "Mask Change" and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. If this card is Special Summoned: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; its ATK becomes half its current ATK. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can pay 500 LP, then target 1 Spell/Trap Card your opponent controls; return it to the hand.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Only good thing about it is being able to halve the ATK of any monster as everything else is pretty poor.
2016 Mega Tins
CT13-EN011
Aether, the Evil Empowering Dragon
DARK / Dragon-Type Pendulum / Level 6 / ATK 2300 / DEF 1600 / Scale 4
Once per turn: You can banish 1 "Empowered Warrior" monster from your Graveyard, then target 1 card on the field; destroy it.
When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can target 1 monster on the field; banish it.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Obviously getting the most out of this card requires it to be with other Empowered Warriors but there aren't a whole lot of them and they haven't really been that good for the most part.
CT13-EN010
D/D/D Gust King Alexander
WIND / Fiend-Type Synchro / Level 7 / ATK 2500 / DEF 2000
1 "D/D" Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
If another "D/D" monster(s) is Normal or Special Summoned to your field, while you control this face-up card (except during the Damage Step): You can target 1 Level 4 or lower "D/D" monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it. You can only use this effect of "D/D/D Gust King Alexander" once per turn.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: You'll have to use this with other D/D or D/D/D monsters because it requires one as Synchro Material and all of its effects.
CT13-EN006
Dragonox, the Empowered Warrior
DARK / Warrior-Type Pendulum / Level 4 / ATK 1500 / DEF 1500 / Scale 7
When an opponent's monster declares an attack: You can destroy this card, then end the Battle Phase.
Once per turn: You can discard 1 card, then target 1 Warrior or Spellcaster-Type monster with 2000 or less ATK in your Graveyard; Special Summon it in face-down Defense Position.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: The Pendulum Effect isn't all that bad since this guy will then be prime for Pendulum Summoning later, though that's only once you get a new Pendulum Monster to replace it as it self-destructs to achieve this benefit. The other effect isn't bad either and this guy is searchable.
CT13-EN005
D/D/D Flame King Genghis
FIRE / Fiend-Type Fusion / Level 6 / ATK 2000 / DEF 1500
2 "D/D" monsters
If another "D/D" monster(s) is Special Summoned to your field, while you control this face-up card (except during the Damage Step): You can target 1 "D/D" monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it. You can only use this effect of "D/D/D Flame King Genghis" once per turn. If this card is destroyed by battle, or if this card in its owner's possession is destroyed by an opponent's card effect: You can target 1 "Dark Contract" card in your Graveyard; add it to your hand.
SUPER RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Not all D/D or D/D/D monsters are all that bad but getting a Dark Contract card in your Graveyard certainly is and this guy isn't that strong.
Championship Series 2016
YCSW-EN009
Number 93: Utopia Kaiser
LIGHT / Warrior-Type Xyz / Rank 12 / ATK 2500 / DEF 2000
2 or more "Number" Xyz Monsters, with the same Rank, that have Xyz Material
Once per turn: You can Special Summon Rank 9 or lower "Number" monsters with 3000 or less ATK that have different Ranks from each other from your Extra Deck, up to the number of Xyz Materials with different names attached to this card, but their effects are negated, then detach 1 Xyz Material from this card. For the rest of this turn, unless this effect was negated, you cannot Special Summon, and any battle damage your opponent takes becomes halved. While you control another "Number" Xyz Monster, this card cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It's the highest Rank we've had so far but its stats don't surpass monsters of the past like regular Utopia and you'll have much work to do to get it out, even with a Rank-Up-Magic card. Plus, even after you get it on the field, those new monsters don't get to do a whole lot and this guy will lose one of its Xyz Materials. To top it all off, you won't be Special Summoning anymore that turn and your opponent takes only half the Battle Damage. The only good thing about this guy is preventtion from destruction in battle or card effects but that's only enough to raise its rating to 2.
Shonen Jump
JUMP-EN077
Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL
LIGHT / Warrior-Type Xyz / No Rank / ATK ? / DEF ?
3 "Number" Xyz Monsters with the same Rank
(This card's original Rank is always treated as 1.) You can also Xyz Summon this card by discarding 1 "Rank-Up-Magic" Normal Spell Card, then using a "Utopia" Monster you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.) This card's Xyz Summon cannot be negated. When Xyz Summoned, your opponent's cards and effects cannot be activated. This card gains 1000 ATK and DEF for each Xyz Material attached to it. Once per turn, during your opponent's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; your opponent's cards and effects cannot be activated this turn (this is a Quick Effect).
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It could become a powerhouse but that means little when each Xyz Material you detach from it weakens it further, leaving it vulnerable to battle. The only plus sides are that it can basically escape your opponent's effects for that turn, it has an alternate summoning method, though that means less Xyz Materials and thus less ATK and DEF, and its Xyz Summon can't be negated.
JUMP-EN076
Relinkuriboh
DARK / Fiend / Level 1 / ATK 300 / DEF 200
If this card is Tributed: Draw 1 card. If a monster you control would be destroyed by battle, you can banish this card from your Graveyard instead.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Whether you use it for a Ritual Summon or Tribute it for a cost, you'll get a free card out of it and can use the effect multiple times per turn but the other effect isn't very good.
5Ds Manga Volume 9
YF09-EN001
Stardust Chronicle Spark Dragon
LIGHT / Dragon-Type Synchro / Level 10 / ATK 3000 / DEF 2500
1 Tuner Synchro Monster + 1 or more non-Tuner Synchro Monsters
Must be Synchro Summoned, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can banish 1 Synchro Monster from your Graveyard; this card is unaffected by other cards' effects for the rest of this turn. If this card in its owner's possession is destroyed by an opponent's card (by battle or card effect): You can target 1 of your banished Dragon-Type Synchro Monsters; Special Summon it.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: You won't be able to bring it out using generic Synchro Materials or revive it from the Graveyard/banished zone but you can give it temporary immunity to other effects and revive a banished Dragon-Type Synchro when destroyed.
Zexal Manga Volume 8
YZ08-EN001
Number S39: Utopia the Lightning
LIGHT / Warrior-Type Xyz / Rank 5 / ATK 2500 / DEF 2000
3 Level 5 LIGHT monsters
You can also Xyz Summon this card by using a Rank 4 "Utopia" monster you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.) Cannot be used as an Xyz Material for an Xyz Summon. If this card battles, your opponent cannot activate cards or effects until the end of the Damage Step. Once per Chain, during damage calculation in either player's turn, if this card battles an opponent's monster while this card has a "Utopia" Xyz Monster as Xyz Material: You can detach 2 Xyz Materials from this card; this card's ATK becomes 5000 during that damage calculation only.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: It's hard to give a high rating to a card that is so fickle in that it has a drawback to every good thing it provides because while you can Rank Up to this guy by its effect, it cannot be Ranked-Up and making its ATK 5000 requires you to have a Utopia monster as its Xyz Material, and you detach 2 of its Xyz Materials. Not all that great for somewhat specific Xyz Materials as a whole.
Shonen Jump
JUMP-EN075
Dystopia the Despondent
DARK / Fiend / Level 12 / ATK 5000 / DEF 5000
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must be Special Summoned (from your hand or Graveyard) by sending 4 Level 1 monsters you control to the Graveyard, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. Other monsters you control cannot attack. During either player's Battle Step, once per battle involving this card: You can banish 1 Level 1 monster from your Graveyard; until the end of the Damage Step, this card is unaffected by other cards' effects, also it cannot be destroyed by battle.
ULTRA RARE
Rating: 1
Comments: It may have 5000 ATK and DEF but it requires you to send 4 of your Level 1 monsters on the field to the Graveyard and only obtains its bonus effects by banishing a Level 1 monster from your Graveyard, and that's just until the end of the Damage Step.
Yugi's Legendary Decks (Continued)
YGLD-ENC00
Black Illusion
Normal Trap
Until the end of this turn, all DARK Spellcaster-Type monsters with 2000 or more ATK you currently control cannot be destroyed by battle, their effects are negated, also they are unaffected by your opponent's card effects.
SECRET RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: Side effects won't matter much if used on a monster like Dark Magician but anything weaker than 2000 ATK like Gemini Elf cannot get this card's benefits, which only last until the end of the turn.
YLGD-ENB00
Dark Renewal
Normal Trap
When your opponent Normal or Special Summons a monster(s): Target 1 of those monsters and 1 Spellcaster-Type monster you control; send both monsters to the Graveyard, then you can Special Summon 1 DARK Spellcaster-Type monster from your Deck or Graveyard.
SECRET RARE
Rating: 2
Comments: You're basically only making one Tribute to Summon or revive your high-level DARK Spellcaster but you're relying on your opponent to even do so and even then your efforts may be thwarted, not to mention you cannot summon just any Spellcaster-Type monster.
