Confiscation

Confiscation is one of those weird cards some people play and some people don't. It's also one of those cards that gets exponentially worse each turn you get into the game.

A first turn Confiscation can completely wreck someone; it gives away their whole hand and takes their best option and throws it to the Graveyard. Even against a Dark World deck, the odds are the opponent wouldn't have five DWers in their opener. You could hit a Dark World Lightning, a Dark Deal, something that would have otherwise helped them.

But late-game, it becomes a painful card to use against a normal deck to hit only one card (that could be a teched Goldd), and a dead card against Dark World (who will typically have a hand of nothing but DW monsters if the duel is even close.)

So why didn't it see more play? It did see some play -- just in the side deck more than in the main. It's way more useful going first than going second, so just side it in after you lose a Duel.

Traditional: 3.75/5 (comboed with the other two, it could still wreck someone's day)
New Advanced: 3/5 (it should always be sided at the very least)

To close this week, we're looking at Confiscation, and Coin Flip said something very interesting about this card...so few people ran Confiscation this previous format, and that's too bad as it's still as good as it ever was, maybe better.

With Delinquent Duo remaining on the Ban List, there's no reason why you shouldn't be running Confiscation. Granted Dark World exists, but that shouldn't stop you from running one of, if not the best hand disruptor cards we have available currently.

I really like, and always have liked Confiscation. It actually seemed to be an underrated card last format, and it is simply mind boggling.
So, use it, use it, USE IT!

Ratings:

Traditional: 4/5 Still good, and you can use Delinquent also

Advanced: 4.75/5

Art: 5/5

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Confiscation

The hawtly debated card, Confiscation. We lost Delinquent to gain a more skilled version. To summarize it, if you got it in your opening hand then you are set. If you didn’t, then it will end up being a bad draw most of the time. It best suited as a side deck card and mostly saw mainboard play at the start of the format, until people realised that that was dumb.

It took some skill to use, but luck to get. Personally I don’t like it that much, although it is a good card.

Traditional: 2/5 (you have Duo and TFS! Why would you really need this? Still solid though, if you have room)
Advanced: 2.5/5

Confiscation:
The best friend of the man (or woman) going first.

An effective way of putting two fingers up to combo decks (though Prohibition always works), and a card good enough to have warented banning at one point.
This isn't as wonderful as some of the other MRL control cards as it is generally useless later in the duel, but still worth putting into the control based deck. This is also a favourite side deck for adding to decks when you know you will be going first.

Tradtional: 4.5/5
Advanced: 4.5/5

Share and enjoy,

Confiscation :

Confiscation has had its spot in the sun for a while now.

In my opinion it is the inferior of Delinquent Duo and Forceful Sentry, but that said, it does have advantages and similarities with both.

Like Delinquent Duo it requires a payment of 1000 lp, but unlike Delinquent duo, it only gets one card.

Like forceful sentry, you can look at the opponents hand and select the card you wish to remove, but unlike Forceful sentry, you get to actually send the card to their grave instead of their deck, which is a plus.

Overall, Confiscation is not a bad card, and is he only surviving relative of the Control Trinity. Good on it.

Traditional ; 4/5 For all that Chaos control.
Advanced: 3/5 Im gonna get a lotta stick for this….

Art ; 3/5...Ooo, impressive…
MPS ; 2/5
