Thur. - Raigeki
Easily the best card in the english set, meet Raigeki. Of course there is
the obvious use when your opponent used that Ultimate Offering turn two and
has a 4 creature lead on you. Or when you face a BEWD, then drawing a Trap
Hole. But let's look a tad bit deeper shall we?
This card basically says "Attack your opponent's Life Points directly and
laugh at all his hard work go down the drain." You remove any sort of
defense they might have built up. The best way to utlize this card is by
amassing a vicious lot of monsters. You can increase the pain dealt with it
by adding a few Trap Holes to the field. Sure, the tips may sound general,
but this card has such great synergy by itself, that any other cards only
Given its power, how can you stop it? Well, I'm afraid it isn't easy. You
can try to De-Spell it if its played on the field, but the chances of that
happening are slim to none. You can try to use Card Destruction to give
yourself draw power, and discard it, but you'll never know if it is in their
hand. The Inexperienced Spy can give you a little peek at their hand, but
that combo is worthless and should be thrown out the window.
So given the "ways" to stop it, the only thing you'll be able to do is
recover from it. Cards like Swords of Revealing Light and Ultimate Offering
help you out, but are vulnerable to De-Spell/Trap. A better alternative is
to use Monster Reborn and Soul Exchange. They will help you recover faster
than you would already be able to. Finally, you could release your own
"Raigeki" through a Dark Hole. Hey you have nothing to lose, so punish them
Rating: 5/5 – You play this.

-well the obvious

Been here for 5 mins can't think of any...
RFP: Well this truly is one of the sickest cards in the game. One of the
cards that will be forever good. I mean its good for when your oppenent only
has like 1600 life points, and then you just win the game. Also if you are
about to unleash a huge attack you could clear the field, and just do heavy
damage. Thats really all there is to this card I mean its a great removal
card thats about it....
RFC:........................................ OH WAIT! THERE are NONE O_o
Raigeki + Monster reborn: Pretty Simple all you need to do is raigeki get
rid of there bewd or sumoned skull then do massive damage to them.
Raigeki + change of heart: Need that extra 2000? Change of heart there
summoned skull/other high attacking monz and then win the game by clearing
Well I am sorry if this cotd was so short, but its raigeki there is nothing
really to say about it. ANYONE whose anyone will play it and if they dont
then there excuse better be I don't own any :*( um yea anyways thats the
cotd have fun and happy dueling....
the best Magic Card in the set. This card is
completely Broken. Broken. Broken.
reason to not play it. Raigeki is definitely the best
monster removal. Can wipe out your opponents army in
one blow while not harming yours. A big improvement
over Dark Hole (Which you should also be playing).
Some basic plays you can make with Raigeki are:
Stall with Swords
of Revealing Light then the turn before the last
counter is going to be removed, cast Raigeki and
destroy all of your opponent's monsters which
were preparing to attack you next turn.
Clear the way to
attack your opponent's life points.
Even if your opponent
has only a Summoned Skull or some other high level
monster in play don't be afraid to cast Raigeki
if you don't have a Fissure or Man-Eater Bug in your
hand. 2500+ damage will add up quickly and being able
to stop that threat while salvaging what monsters you
have left is a very good thing.
Final Comments: If you
like this card wait until you see Mirror Force in
Metal Raiders. ;)
