Hello Pojo Fans,

This was the pricy card of the set, as most searching Spell cards tend to be: WANTED: Seeker of Sinful Spoils.

WANTED gets you to Diabellstar from the Deck or graveyard, pretty simple. As a consistent extender monster that can fit in almost any archetype, searching her out would be important. It wouldn’t be worth its price tag just for that though.

Banish to put a Sinful Spoils Spell/Trap back to the bottom of the Deck and then getting a free draw ensures you won’t draw that specific card you just put back (unless you draw a copy of it) and gets you back something that was banished or in the grave essentially for free. You may not always be able to use this effect because you can play Diabellstar without any Sinful Spoil cards. However, if you are playing her alongside something like Snake-Eye, then you’ll have a lot to choose from, depending on your build. For those playing just Diabellstar, you may also be playing Rciela for a Slifer second mouth-style effect, or Subversion as a tech to get rid of a problem monster on the field. If in Snake-Eye, you’re definitely playing Original Sinful Spoils – Snake-Eye because of its search power and Special Summon ability within the Snake-Eye archetype. It has a graveyard effect that won’t always be used, but it’s good that it has one.

WANTED gets you to your extender Diabellstar, and that is pretty much enough for most players. They play a combo of the two and go from there. If you are playing Snake-Eye though, this card gets you to Diabellstar, and helps you get back one of your Sinful Spoils Spell/Trap to help your strategy. As someone playing Dark Magician, I’m playing her alongside Rciela, and wouldn’t mind this as well to recycle that card back.

We saw Diabellstar, and now we get to the card that searches for her: WANTED: Seeker of Sinful Spoils.

WANTED is a Quick-Play Spell that lets you add any Diabellstar monster from your Deck or graveyard to your hand, technically meaning you only have to run 1 Diabellstar since this does recover it from the grave, it just easy to recommend more since it is a consistency boost. If we ever get more Diabellstar monsters, which based off this we should, then the card of course gets better as it would search those as well. The other effect is a grave effect for your Main Phase, banishing this from the grave to return a Sinful Spoils Spell/Trap that’s banished or in the grave, besides another WANTED, and return it to the bottom of the Deck for a draw, also meaning you can play fewer of those if you can get by with it since this does recover them and Diabellstar just sets them from the Deck. Hard once per turn on each effect, which is fine. It’s 3 more copies of Diabellstar and it recycles your Sinful Spoils cards for a grind game. Play 3 if you’re able to and want to use Diabellstar.

Today’s card doesn’t need much explanation if you kept up with our 2023 countdown; WANTED: Seeker of Sinful Spoils is a Quick-Play Spell. While it’s not a Snake-Eye card by name, it is part of the Sinful Spoils mini-archetype, making it closely linked to Snake-Eye through Diabellstar the Black Witch. WANTED has two hard once per turn effects– the first is as simple as you can get, searching any Diabellstar monster or recycling one from your Graveyard back to your hand. Currently in the TCG, the only target is Diabellstar the Black Witch itself, though there’ll be another target when Legacy of Destruction comes around. Providing more copies of Diabellstar is the main reason to max out on WANTED, though another key reason lies in its second effect, letting you banish it from your Graveyard during your Main Phase to place a Sinful Spoils Spell or Trap from your Graveyard or from banished to the bottom of your deck, then draw one card. It’s a small but valuable effect, as it not only recycles backrow to go with Diabellstar’s revive effect, it also provides a free draw that balances out Diabellstar’s discard to summon itself. WANTED is an interesting lesson in card economics, as many players have opted to play only 1 or 2 copies of Diabellstar, but 3 copies of WANTED for the sole reason that the discard can make or break a game, so recuperating that loss is very valuable. Personally, I’m not sure if WANTED is currently worth its exorbitant price tag of $130 per copy, but if you want to play Fire King or Rescue-ACE at its peak performance, you’ll be shelling out!

+Starter for many meta decks and kickstarts powerful plays without consuming your Normal Summon
+Offsets the discard of Diabellstar the Black Witch
-Has no searcher outside of Diabellstar itself so it can be inconsistent
