all, it is DrZaPPeR84! Here is another jolly good
CoTd for your looking....
Casual Play: 2.5
Tourney Play: 2.8
-Could get rid of something that your oppenent has
been saving up for you, and then you force them to
-Gets rid of spells what more do you want?
-Doesn't get rid of SorL when it is activated.
-can be a waste of deck space.
Reasons for pros:
The only reason why this card is even average, is
because it can get rid of magics your oppenent
wanted to save for later, but if you are either A)
Lucky or B) just know what your oppenent has, on
their field, then this card isn't bad for you.
Otherwise it is a magic that gets rid of a
magic..... hm Spiffy, I think, or maybe not.
Reasons for cons:
Well, the biggest reason why this card kind of is on
the bad side, is because it doesnt get rid of sorl!
You are all saying well it should, because it is a
face up magic, no it doesn't. The reason it doesn't
is because when you activate sorl its on a side of
its own. Its kind of hard to explain, but its
already in play. For instance you could use de-spell
on an equipment magic, but with sorl its already
being used, and you can not use de-spell on a card
thats in use, and is not being used meaning if it is
not face up, and you flipped it over via de-spell
then well you would discard it. So yea this card has
Combos: This card can be used with trap master or
stern mystic to see what your oppenent has on the
field, and then you can de-spell it, since you would
know what it is, and it wouldn't be a waste of a
card. There are no other combos with this card,
besides cards that allow you to see your oppenents
There is nothing more to say about this card except
it might have some uses. uh tune in next week folks
for new episodes....=/ I know that sounded corny,
Eh.. you know, this card isn't too great. It's still debated whether or not
it can stop Swords of Revealing Light, and it's not looking too good on that
front. Basically, all you can stop with it are face-down magic and
Combos? None that I can think of.
Rating: 3.7/5 –
You need one in every deck. It’s TeCh for YuGiOh.
Trust me on that one.
De-Spell. A simple card, but useful. Basically, you
destroy a Magic on the field. That’s nice. A combo
with it is using The Stern Mystic to scope out their
Magic cards, then let loose a De-Spell. Also, if
your opponent just played a Card Destruction and
played a face-down Magic, nail it with De-Spell.
More often than not, it’ll be a powerful
Magic-type card. De-Spells are also useful for
crippling your opponents monster if it has been
pumped up by equips. In later sets, there will be
negative equip cards you may need to remove. But the
main use is Swords of Revealing Light. It won’t
remove the initial flipping of your monsters, but it
will enable you to attack.
Dang… This one was short… =/ Sorreh. =P
card, should be used in most decks, but as for why,
nothing better's out =/
Pros: See any card they have on the field
Cons: Can't stop effects of cards
help against traps
can use De-Spell to look at any magic/trap card on
the field. Then, if it's a Trap that you don't
like, you can always use Trap Master and get rid of
it. If it's a magic, it's destroyed, so there
goes that problem.
Even Swords of
Revealing Light isn't stopped by it.
You can only use it to destroy
cards, acttivating it on your turn. So
basically, it can't stop Raigeki, Change of Heart,
Dark Hole, etc. Not really all that useful =/
Yea, it lets you
see a trap if that's what you choose, but you're not
going to do anything about it. Only thing is
Trap Master, and is that really worth your summon?
All in all, it's a reasonable card, but should
only be used until better counter cards come out in
the next set. If you don't play it, not a big
deal, but sometimes it just seems right to have it
De-Spell is an
interesting card. If you guess right on a Magic card
face-down, you could destroy a Raigeki or Change of
Heart! But, if you guess wrong, it's a waste of the
If your opponent has
a Swords of Revealing Light in play, they may think
they're safe and not put any monsters out. You could
De-Spell it, then play something like a La Jinn and
do 1800 straight to them!
