Swords of Revealing Light. Ugh.
The most hated card around, Iím sure. Why Pot of
Greed and this little bugger didnít switch places is
beyond me. >=/
Against a large amount of
face-down monsters, you would obviously play SoRL
before a monster, for fear of effect monsters. But
after that, knock each monster away! Just be weary
after the 3 turns are up, for your opponent will most
likely have amassed a decent card selection and is
ready pwnz you hard for your Swords attack. =/
Probably most useful during the
late game when youíre scrambling to draw a monster.
Those three turnsíll save you, I bet. They can also
spare you some time to draw a Raigeki, Fissure, or
Dark Hole against an early Summoned Skull.
And for the record, yes,
De-Spell DOES negate and destroy the 3 turn effect of
Rating: 4.6 Ė Very disrupting
card. You must place at least one in your deck or
sideboard. It is law. =/
Lets take a look at todays cotd....
Swords of revealing light
Casual Play: 5
Tourney Play: 4.5
-3 turns of stalling, oh goodie :-)
-This thing could stall your oppenent out long enough for you to get the
cards needed to win the game.
-Could flip over an effect monster like Man Eater-Bug.
-De-Spell ownz this card.
RFP: Lets see here, I mean its quite obvious. This cards main purpose is to
stall. It, although only in a minor viewpoint could also be disruption(more
on this in the combos section of my cotd.) This card could also mean death
to your oppenent. All you have to do is stall until you have the right card,
and then releash it on them. This card in a way could also act like
yesterdays cotd stop defense. If you suspect your oppenent has a man
eater-bug then all you need to do is play this thing down, and watch as the
bug acts all confused and such and kills itself........=/ Anyways this card
has many purposes, but its main purpose is to stall....
IMO this card is better then raigeki. I know you all are like o_O. I know
de-spell can't get rid of raigeki, but in those three turns you could draw
the raigeki, and win the game. Also if your oppenent is about to win the
game you can flip this card over, and then unless they have a de-spell, they
have to wait three more turns to possibly win the game. So thats why I think
this card might be a teeny bit better then raigeki, because of three turns
can go a long way.
RFC: Well this card doesn't really have any cons except that de-spell ownz
this card, and um yea thats all you really need to know... de-spell=death to
Combos: Ah the combo section. This card is not only used for stalling, but
there are three very good combos with this card. And here they are....
Swords of revealing light + fissure: Say its turn two you get this card in
your opening hand and your oppenent lays a reverse monster on the field. you
play this card down they flip there mon and then you get rid of there mon
with fissure and attack them for direct damage unless they have trap hole
Swords of revealing light + raigeki: this combo works throughout the three
turns.... Let your oppenent play as many monsters as they want down. Then at
the end of the three turns you flip over raigeki and bam! attack them for
Swords of revealing light +Removal card(preferably raigeki/dark hole) +
monster reborn: This combo you do the same thing as the 2nd combo, except at
the end of the three turns you get that bewd or summoned skull that they had
to discard, and do some heavy damage to them XD!
As you can see this card has a lot of combos. It is a very good card, and
deserves the rating it got. Good luck and happy dueling..........
