Nobleman of Crossout is also Restricted...again. Can't a card go more than one cycle without having it's status on the Ban List increase or decrease? Anyway, what does only one Nobleman of Crossout mean? It means, in short, that you don't have to be so worried about playing face-down defense monsters.

Why? Odds are the only things you're going to find set are Marshmallow, Spirit Reaper, and Treeborn Frog, but not limited to those monsters. It's great if you can strike any of those monsters, as long as yours doesn't get removed also.

However...we still have Shield Crush to destroy defense monsters, but definately play the Nobleman of Crossout you are allowed.


5/5 both formats

Art: 3.5/5


Nobleman of Crossout

So Crossout makes its trip back to 1.  With Shield Crush in existence (and unlimited) this is nearly a moot point.  If a deck needs to blaze through defenders, it has Nobleman + a couple Shield Crush.  Although you do lose out by not removing the monster the majority of the time; Sangan, Treeborn, a set Card Trooper...there are lots of monsters still being played you'd rather remove than destroy.  But you make up for it with Crush by being able to hit face-ups.

Not much changes in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh with Crossout going back to 1/deck.

3.5/5 (lower score for the aggressive players setting far less now)
General Zorpa Nobleman of Crossout
This is again I believe another attempt to control gadgets without limiting the clockwork cogs themselves. It won't work. People already use Banisher of the Radiance, Drillroid and monarchs to get rid of facedowns. I suspect that this might make Shield Crush slightly more playable, but other than that I never one more than one Nobleman at ANY given time, just because of the possibility of a dead draw.
Nobleman itself is a powerful card, but far too situational to get a staple status, unless we go back to a slower format, which seems unlikely looking at the recent SJC's and the next set, Light of Destruction.
Master Tricks
Nobleman of Crossout
    This card is newly restricted to 1 copy per deck once again and is a little pointless to even be on the banned list at all since barely anyone would want to run 3 or even 2 copies of this card since it just gets rid of face-down monsters. We want cards that can destroy any monster of any kind fast, easily, and cheaply, but those cards are usually hard to get or just have minor side effects such as Soul-Taker that we just can't seem to accept since 1000 LP gain for opponent just to destroy any monster doesn't seem to be worth the time, but it does a fetch a good price. Anyway, this card simply destroys and removes from play an enemy face-down monster and removes all copies of that card from both players' decks if it was a flip effect monster. It's common sense to usually have 1 copy of this card in a basic metagame deck. That ends my review and if you guys need anything from me such as Yugioh answers to questions you have, please feel free to contact me at pathoon@aol.com. Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day or evening or whatever...
Traditional: 3/5

Ex` Thursday March 6th: Nobleman of Crossout

If there was an award for the most times a Card goes from Limited to Restricted and vice versa, that award goes to Nobleman of Crossout, celebrating its 4th time moving between 2 seperate restrictions. This format, Crossout moves from 2 to 1. Why would you ask? According to the changes, it was logical to put Crossout at 1 thanks to the 2 Books we can all pack in our decks, but was it really necessary?

I felt that both Crossout and Book can remain at 2 with harmony. Even with 1 Book and 2 Crossouts last format, it saw less play than it should have. This format shouldn't feel an impact from Crossout. It will still see play in certain decks, but I feel its uses greatly diminish in every passing format

Traditional: 3/5 (A Solid way to remove a Light/Dark without sending to the graveyard

Advanced: 2.5/5 (even with 2 Books, this restriction was unjustified)

Until Next Time

pwii ok, todays card is nobleman of crossout. I cant wait for spring break! and easter! and my birthday! and easter candy!

nobleman of crossout is one of those cards that has been on and off the banlist and never staying in one place. this was limited because book of moon would've been to good with this. It doesnt really matter to most, they'll just replace it with a sheild crush. but since I'm a cheapstake, it's kind of anoying. this is an awesome card, and should be run with sheild crush for a total of about 3 copies for aggro decks. not as good outside of that though.

5/5 trad.

5/5 adv.

2.5/5 anything not aggro.
