Pot of Duality wins the award for Card of the Year 2010...be honest, did you see that coming?  It was the most anticipated card from Duelist Revolution, and for good reason.  It's the best Draw card in the game, and you likely see it often, and in multiples.
 
Short and sweet here folks, you show your opponent your top three cards of your Deck, and choose the best of the bunch to add to your Hand.  The other two return to the Deck, which you then shuffle.  You can't Special Summon in the turn you use this, and you can only use one Pot of Duality a turn...adds balance to a powerful Draw card.
 
Ratings:
 
Traditional:  3/5  I don't see much need for this except maybe in Turbo-Exodia or something.
 
Advanced:     5/5  No Pot, no Graceful...
 
Art:          4/5

Pot of Duality, the best card of 2010. Also the rarest card of 2010, also the most expensive card of 2010, also the most trollishly powerful card of 2010. And skeptics called it overrated. HA!

Pot of Duality takes the best card you'll draw in 3 turns and adds it to your hand, while shoving away the cards you aren't interested in. The strength of Pot of Duality's one-for-one is that the card is turns into is almost guaranteed to be a card you're looking for. Want proof, poor people? At some point during your next [casual] duel, instead of a normal draw, look at the top 3 cards of your deck and use any one of them as the card you draw.

It makes just about any deck consistent.

It's that good.

But what's that, you say? Losing a special summon in this format is like losing a turn?

Ryko, Hamster, Recruiter, Darksoul, Emmersblade, Snowman, Dandy, Sangan, Spy, Goblin, Treeborn, Dekoichi, recruiter monster.

Pot of Duality is broken on purpose.

10/5
Art: Looks so disgusting, having been bumped from Super to Secret.
Depressing Fact: Rarity bumps.
Tomorrow: You're won't be as excited to go to Pojo.

Here it is. The top card of 2010. Today’s card is……. D. D. Unicorn Knight!
 
Whoops, no, it’s Pot of Duality.
 
What is there to say about Pot? Nearly every deck out there can make use of at least one or two, if not three Pots. Not to mention that it’s crazy expensive (okay, it’s no Crush Card, but still, it’s the first to break $100 in a while). And one more thing: it’s balanced, for Christ sake! Pot is not at all what I would call broken, it’s simply useful to everyone. And since it’s so balanced, it’s not going to get hit by the list. This card really has changed the game, becoming an instant staple that can be run in triplicate. Fitting that it should receive the title of top card of 2010.
 
Traditional: 5/5
Advanced: 5/5
Art: Half a Pot of Greed + half a Pot of Generosity + scotch tape = $100
Fun Fact: Duality sleeves are sexy
Other Fun Fact: Pot of Greederosity was funner to say

The Legion

The top card of 2010 is, who guessed it, Pot of Duality, and rightfully so. This card is amazing. One of the best parts about that this card is that is gives decks that previously had no draw power a very balanced way to thin their deck down and find what they need. Take stun decks for example, or Gemini abuse, how in the world were these decks supposed to have draw power before this card was printed. The only real downside to this card is that it gave already fast decks (Blackwings) a way to be even faster and more consistent. Even with all the good things about this card, remember that you don’t necessarily need to go out and spend 300 bucks to have a top tier deck. Look at Plant synchro, they do it only using Pot of Avarice. Pot of Duality is great, and it gives slow, unsupported decks, a way to be competitive. Over all, this card definitely deserves to be the top card of 2010. 2010 was a great year for Yu-Gi-Oh, let’s hope 2011 will be the same.

Our first place card is, as many of you have probably already guessed, is pot of duality. Its a normal spell that allows you to reveal the top three cards of your deck and select one to add to your hand, the others go back to the deck and you shuffle it, you cant special summon and you cant activate multiple of them. This adds tons of speed to any deck that uses it. almost every deck in the world could use this card. Unfortunatly its a 100 dollar secret rare from a pack thats sold out.

Today's card is number one, the big shot, the head of the pack, the king of the hill, the card of cards for 2010. I could go on but I won't. And can you guess what that card is? I'll just wait for you to figure it out...But I'll give you a hint, it's most certainly NOT Pot of Duality.
 
 
 
Okay, never mind, you're just too slow. Just kidding, it is, in fact, Pot of Duality. Who saw that one coming? Well, did you? That's right, I didn't think so.
Okay, back to the card review. Pot of Duality comes in at number one, at no real surprise to anybody at all. The only thing that contested it for this spot was Gravekeeper's Recruiter, and collectively, we here at CotD decided to go with the more generic card, apparently.
Pot of Duality is a great generic draw power card that is almost perfectly balanced. You get to add 1 card to your hand out of the top three card of your deck, but you don't get to special summon for the rest of the turn. A very nice balance for a card that can be used in almost any deck. It truly shines out in most anti-meta, though, due to the fact that those decks very rarely special summon. But what deck under the sun couldn't use more draw power? That's right, pretty much none.
Now only one question remains. Why in the blazes did Konami decide to make this card a 100 dollar secret!? I mean, really. Yes, all you who have managed to get them you can be proud of that, but who makes a generic draw card a secret?
Anyway, this card is a absolute must run if you can afford it. So, if you can go out and buy a playset, do so. And if you can't..sell all your possessions and then go get a playset.
Assailant out.
