Dark Bribe is a card that has
gotten a lot of attention and focus this Format,
both positive and negative.Some see this card as the poor man's Solemn
Judgment...others see this as the NEW Solemn
Let's take a look at that.
Dark Bribe is a Counter Trap that
negates the activation and effect of an opponent's
Magic or Trap card and destroys.As a secondary effect, your opponent Draws
one card.As a general rule of thumb, except in strange
Decks, or on the turn you are about to win, your
opponent Drawing because of something you did, is
not a good thing.
However, here, that is
meaningless.Dark Bribe is one of those cards that only
gets better as the Duel goes along.You know your opponent is waiting to throw
something on you, and you stop it.They get to Draw one card?Big deal.
While Solemn Judgment can also
negate the summon of a Monster, and it does require
a cost, being half your Lifeponits, as opposed to
your opponent merely being able to Draw...well, we
aren't comparing the two...that sounds like
something I need to do in detail in an article.
Art:5/5Simple, but nice.
This is a card that has seen play off and on. I do
think that we have reviewed it recently, but it
still does the same things that it did back then. It
negates any spell or trap at the cost of your
opponent drawing a card. This is "soft" negation
like Magic Drain as opposed to "hard" negation
like Magic Jammer. The reason that it is soft is
that your opponent may draw something even better.
Meaning that you may negate Mystical Space
Typhoon only to have them draw Heavy Storm.
This card is all about the timing. You want to
negate it when they are defending themselves with
Mirror Force or Torrential and have no opportunity
to fight back with whatever they draw. Mostly this
is used in Counter Fairy decks, as it becomes an
even trade with Artemis on the field. It has also
been used with some varying degree of success in Six
Samurai, as they need to be able to force attacks
through. I personally have found that it works best
in fairy decks and not in samurai.
Once again, this card is all about the timing. I do
think that it is good, just that Solemn Judgment has
taken it's place, and it doesn't look like Bribe
will be rising to power again any time soon.
Negate the activation and effect of an opponent's
Magic or Trap card and
destroy it. Your opponent draws 1 card.
Todayʼs card up for review is Dark Bribe. This
card is obviously ridiculous in power by reading it.
This is easily one of my favorite cards and one of
the more powerful cards out there if you are smart.
This card along with Solemn can be the most powerful
cards as long as you know when to exactly to play
either of them, they can win you the game/match. To
negate any thread to your field that you built up is
obviously amazing. Macro for example, negating heavy
storm or even trunade should give you the win
Now, like I said you have to be smart about
playing it. You have to save it for a game changing
spell/trap. Your opponent gets to draw so you have
to think ahead, and think of what all resources your
opponent used so far. If you can do that, you simply
Some people say dark bribe is
horrible, a -1, useless.
This card is a miracle in burn
and combo decks, what's a -1 instead of a destroyed
lab? This card should never be restricted, run in
threes, and run skillfully.
5/5 in the right deck, both
