What are some of your favorite cards of all time? If you are like me, the damn card is probably banned...and more than likely it deserved it's banned status. To the newer players or less competitive players, understanding the Restricted status of cards is difficult. This can be attributed to the fact that they either did not play the game in the card's prime, therefore don't have recurring nightmares of it's brokeness. Or for whatever selfish reason, they just want to run the card because it's cool. In today's article, I'll discuss my Monster of All Time:
I used to try to put this FUCKER in everything! If there was ever was a two tribute monster you wanted to draw, this was one of them. Spell recovery has always been good yugiohs. A spell-fetching card attached to a 2800atk/2600def body with the ability to BANISH anything it matched or beat in battle is just icing on the cake. Ontop of that, it banished itself, allowing it to be reused a multitude of ways:
I remember the Goat Format (triple scapegoat, metamorphosis, Thousand Eyes Restrict, etc). You could basically FTK your opponent by opening with the Trinity. Your first turn would look something like this if you won the die roll:
First, play Pot of Greed, draw Ring of Destruction and DMoC.
Then, play Graceful Charity, Draw Sinister Serpent, Premature Burial, and Deliquent Duo. Discard Serpent and DMoC
Next Play Duo.
Finally, Play Premature Burial targeting DMoC and depending on what info you can gather from your Duo play, you can either fetch Pot of Greed or Duo to further annoy your opponent.
During Airblade and DAD Return format this card was still stupid with all of the Power Cards you could recover like Allure of Darkness, Dimension Fusion, Reborn, Reasoning, Monster Gate, Vortex, etc. Even now, this card would see play despite the lower number of Power Cards it could retrieve. The uber high attack power, the ability to banish monsters, and the spell recovery would break any deck he would fit in. Don't think for a second that Necrovalley and Effect Veiler would hamper this guys playability either. It is really still too easy to spam this guy: From the "deck" Foolish Burial/Armageddon Knight/Grepher -> Reborn/Call of the Haunted, Monster Gate/Reasoning, "double tribute" treeborn and fishborg, and Hidden Armory/Power Tool Dragon gets you D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation. I wish it weren't so, but DMoC is truly broken and he is an FTK Enabler on so many fronts which we all should know by now are not good for the game.
