It's a theme-specific 2 for 1.
*does a search in RONIN for monsters that fit the
requirement...that don't suck*
The even semi-decent ones: Great Maju Garzett, Giant
Orc (for DDV maybe?), Mist Archfiend, and The End of
Anubis. There are others, but I don't see anyone
making decks around the others.
If you run anything revolving around these types of
monsters, then yes, go ahead and play this.
Otherwise, it's a very limited card in what decks it
will give a +1 to. Meh, it's a FOTB SCR, at least
Select two Dark monster with 0 Defense in your
Graveyard and return them to your Hand.
I don't really like this card. It is specific
support, sort of, for weak monsters of a specific
type. An interesting concept, but I don't really see
the point. Sorry to be short, but come on people.
1/5 all, and I do believe that is justified.
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
Dark Factory of mass production is superior in my
opinion. But this card can nab giant orc and
Infernal Dragon. The real question is basically to
wonder how many monsters are played that fit the
criteria. In your average deck NONE. Thus I'll leave
you to decide if it is worth running. It is not a
bad card but what it does has yet to be really
Yet another Secret Rare from FOTB, it's plainly
obvious that this card is designed to be used
exclusively in a Virus Control deck.
Essentially a version of Salvage or Dark Factory of
Mass Production, Nightmare is intended to help even
out the cost you paid to activate Deck Devastation
Virus or Crush Card Virus.
To date, there are a limited number of DarK monsters
that have 0 DEF that are seen competitively. A small
list of them are:
The End of Anubis (6/2500/0)
Goblin King (1/0/0)
Inferno Hammer (6/2400/0)
Berserk Dragon (8/3500/0)
Great Maju Garzett (6/0/0)
Infernal Dragon (4/2000/0)
Giant Orc (4/2200/0)
King of the Skull Servants (1/?/0)
Mist Archfiend (5/2400/0)
and of that list, only Giant Orc and Infernal Dragon
are seen with any regularity.
1/5 - I want to keep my DARK monsters in the
2/5 - To be used only in a Virus Control deck, but
I'd rather keep my monsters in the GY from Pot of
Avarice, Dark Necrofear, or Sky Scourge Norleras /
2/5 - "There's an entirely different universe beyond
that black hole. A point where time and space as we
know it no longer exists. We will be the first to
see it, to explore it, to experience it!"

Ahhhh….Friday at last. By the time you all read
this, I’ll be at the LCQ’s in Columbus, Ohio! Oh
yea!!! Let’s just hope my many attempts to qualify
doesn’t turn into today’s card name….
Select 2 DARK type monsters with 0 defense in your
graveyard and return them to your hand.
Very simple effect. It’s a +1, reuse some of your
decks good mosnters. Bad opening draw. I only see
one major issue….how many dark monsters in the game,
that are any good, have 0 defense? End of Anubis? I
can’t think of anymore off the top of my head.
So, simply put, if your deck plays a lot of dark 0
defense monsters, you could probably make use of one
or two of these, otherwise no.
Sorry for the short review…not much to say.

Select 2 DARK monsters with 0 DEF in your graveyard
and return them to your hand.
Well this card can be a pretty good card in the
right deck. The deck i'm talking about is a deck
with Eradicator Epidemic Virus and Deck Devastation
Virus. This card can give more control to those
decks. How you may ask? Well it's monsters like
Giant Orc, End of Anubis and Mist Archfiend that can
make this deck work really nicely. Recurring
Nightmare can give you those monsters back and many
of the other 0 DEF DARK monsters back like Infernal
Dragon and even the weaker Armored Zombie and Dragon
Zombie. Also with a deck with Snipe Hunter and you
keep discarding the 0 DEF monsters, not only can you
get them back with this but that gives more
advantage to you, to either discard or summon. This
card can only really see play in one deck, but if
that deck goes off then its going to be a bad time
for your opponent. Too bad there aren't more 0 DEF
monsters that can make a big difference in Yu-Gi-Oh!
Props to Kyle P. for the list of DARK monsters with
0 DEF, that made this COTD better for all you
Traditional: 1.5/5 I don't really like it in this
deck, but then again, you can use the 0 DEF monsters
Advanced: 3/5 In that deck, wow this card make it
work a lot better. Hopefully there will be more
monsters with 0 DEF to come
