Jar of Greed

...and now that Time Seal is gone, the people that were teching this are going to move on to this.

Jar of Greed is a good card for some of the same reasons that Time Seal is. At worst, it's a 1:1. Sometimes you can draw out an opposing MST with it to gain an extra card. It's not going to create a match-winning lock, but it can punish an opponent for overusing M/T destruction, which is quite prevalent in this format.

It's not complicated, so it doesn't need a very long review. Skilled players can get advantage with it, average players can thin through their deck with it, and crappy players will try to play it from their hand. We've seen all three by now.

3/5 Traditional (as with HFD around it's not that horrible)
3.5/5 Advanced

Jar of Greed is the card we look at today, a nice little piece of tech that had also been showing up a copy or two of in people's decks as of the last format.

Jar of Greed is, like yesterday, a very simple card with a very simple effect. When you activate Jar of Greed, you get to draw one card from your deck. It's a 1 for 1, and in my opinion, one of the better ones in the game.

See, there are three types of one for ones, and in my opinion, they go like this:

You give up one card from your hand for one from the opponents hand

You give up one card from your hand for one from the opponents field

You give up one card from your field/hand for one from your deck.

Anything that can give you draw advantage is good, it was better in the previous format as we had no Pot and no Graceful, though Graceful is back now.

There isn't as much reason to run it, but still without Pot of Greed, you might feel free to main one just for the extra card draw option.


Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3.25/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Jar of Greed

Similar to Time Seal we look at Jar of Greed. It would essentially serve the same purpose as a Time Seal tech in the last format. I only rate it less since preventing the opponent from getting resources is better than just gaining them

Traditional: 1.0/5 (no need with tons of draw power, the techs don’t really work in Trad)
Advanced: 3.0/5

Jar of Greed:
Not my taste in pottery.

In my opinion, any space in your deck used playing this can generally be better used. However, it does have a few uses:
1. Exodia drawing.
2. If you chain this to s/t removal, it becomes a 1-4-0 and is always a 1-4-1.
3. About as close as yugioh comes to cycling.

This really sits only as tech, but if you find yourself with a few empty deck slots you just can't fill, give this a try.

Traditonal: 3/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

Share and enjoy,

Jar of Greed :

The card everyone would run if they could fit it in. Jar of greed is a delightful little trap that basically allows you to draw an extra card. It great for deck thinning , and can abuse cards like Morphing jar quite easily.

Jar of greed pretty much has no flaws , except that you have to set it, but asides from that it can be quite useful.

Being chainable it makes the perfect bluff, drawing out a precious MST or Breaker effect, only for the opponent to see you gaining from it. I like it.

Traditional ; 3/5
Advanced : 3/5

Art ; 3/5
MPS : 4/5
Rj Jar Of Greed

Wow, really? I love this card too, very solid card. Jar Of Greed is a normal trap, of spell speed dos (Or "two" for those of who are un aware of Spanish lingo.), and is of course chainable to spell and trap removal, as well as Royal Decree or a Call Of The Haunted for Jinzo.

This card is perhaps better to some people than Time Seal because if your opponent waste spell and trap removal on this, they straight up lose their card. Its like a 2-1 heavy, You lose heavy, they lose another card, so its even, but then they lose the SECOND card. You lose Nothing, they lose something. Genius!

Basically, in last format Frog decks you can go 2:2 with Time Seal and Jar Of Greed, and its ALWAYS FUN setting 2 jar of greed's first turn, got to love that.

Advanced -- 3/5 Solid card.
