I guess this is our way of saying "good wishes for
the year 2006."
That is, if they weren't banned.
Actually, as much as I'm an advocate for broken
cards (I don't miss the Trinity as a whole but I do
miss BLS), there's a very good reason for this card
to be banned.
Dark World monsters.
If this card was legal, Dark World would probably be
the next CC, as it would basically read: "Draw 3
cards. Special Summon 2 monsters from your hand to
the field." Then we'd have all these mirror Dark
World matchups, people trying to Creature Swap their
Morphing Jar over to their opponent so they can get
the secondary effect, and hoping their opponent
doesn't have a lot of DW in their hand when they
play Card Destruction.
There's broken that can be dealt with (BLS) and
insane broken. Outside of Dark Hole, Torrential
Tribute, and Mirror Force, I don't like people
getting +5 out of one card.
In conclusion, although this card owned back in the
day, and I actually remember the month that it
wasn't limited at all and I ran THREE, there's valid
reason to keep this thing under lock and key, as it
would be too powerful in Dark World with the
controlled discard. Note that
Pot of Greed doesn't have a controlled discard.
There was no reason to ban that!
This year is over. So I wish for the divine forces
of luck (and
karma) to treat you well in the following year.
Graceful Charity is a good representation of this.
It gives you card advantage and card quality and fun
times all around. :)
It's banned, but it gets 5/5 in Traditional.
Graceful Charity is broken. Drawing three cards in
this game is insane. Discarding cards for effects
and recursion combos is ridiculous. Print both of
these mechanics on one card and you have one
seriously busted spell card. Add a little FTK and
Dark World to the factor and you suddenly see why
Graceful Charity is banned from the advanced format.
Traditional: Ridiculous/5 (5/5)
Closing out the week, we look at another banned
card, Graceful Charity.
Like yesterday and Monday's card, this is good, and
you better be using it in Traditional where you can.
You know what it's capable of so use it.
Overall Rating: 2.65/5
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
