Today’s card up for review is Call Of The Haunted. Reborn got the axe, and we get this card back, fine by me. This card isn’t broken whatsoever, and is healthy for the game. It is easily the less broken of the big 3 resurrection cards, simply because it only targets something in your yard, and you have to set it. The only top deck that should really be using it is Zombies, and that’s because of all the Mass synchro summoning that you can do. If you are using a non tier deck, this card would also be in there for the most part, just because of the power it has. Because the game isn’t about using Tribute monsters, you are better off letting your opponent to kill the card so you can chain it and get a plus off some grave effect card. If you are using Zombies, or a non top tier deck, use this card without a doubt

Trad: 5/5
Adv: 5/5

Call of the Haunted ...

Really? reviewing one of the best and original big name old school trap cards of all time?

OK. fine. Well this is simple - its as good as it ever was. Maybe better. There was a time where some of the best and strongest monsters had that stupid limitation on them that kept them from being able to be special summoned outside of their own effects, which may have limited the usability of Call. Those days arent done, but more and more, today we see lots of the big beasts that can still come back again after they'd been summoned for the first time ... or those that have no restrictions at all, making plays like the classic "dump & revive" perfectly in fashion for Call of the Haunted. Its one of the cleanest options left to do this that applies to virtually ANY monster, now that Monster Reborn is gone again and Premature Burial is still out of our hands.

So yeah. COTH (as the "pros" call it) is still awesome.
No brainer.

Call of the Haunted:

 

     What can I say about this card... it's in a state of constant flux...  sometimes banned, sometimes not... sometimes favored in the format, sometimes not.  I feel like it is a bit slow for this format, but it is about the only form of generic monster recursion we have right now, with monster reborn and premature burial both on the banlist.  The same tricks still work; you can bring jinzo back with it and then jinzo is immune to the second effect of call (but who is playing jinzo?), you can bring back sangan/goblin zombie with it and almost guarantee yourself another search, etc...  At Shonen Jump Columbus four of the top sixteen decks ran Call of the Haunted.  Each of those four decks ran sangan and goblin zombie x2, thus suggesting that slower decks (Zombie hybrids/Anti Meta) will definitely benefit from this card more than faster decks(Lightsworn/Blackwings). 

 

Traditional:  2.0

Advanced   3.5
