Fiend Comedian opens our week, a very old card that has quite the interesting effect. It's a very interesting Trap card, one that I've never even seen used before, but is that because it's a bad card...arguably so.

It could be an interesting card to play as tech against your opponent.
With Dark Armed Dragon, Synchros, and other cards requiring monsters to be removed from the Graveyard to be Special Summoned, removing your opponent's Graveyard could be crippling.

Wait, there's the adverse effect too. If you call the coin flip wrong, you send the number of cards from the top of your Deck to your Graveyard equal to the number of cards that your opponent happens to have in his/her Graveyard.

That could actually speed your plans along for whatever you might be planning, but it could cripple you as well. You could have just lost countless cards that you needed for your strategy and I don't like that.

Ratings:

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5
Art: 3.5/5

Well, this is actually a good card in the right deck. It was originally used with the Exchange of the Sprits card to get as many cards in your graveyard as possible. Now, it can serve a more practical purpose. Removing your opponent's graveyard from play is an extremely good deal, especially if their deck is invested in getting cards from the graveyard to the field for things like Synchro Summons.

Every competitive deck nowadays uses the graveyard to some extent. Gladiator Beasts, Lightsworn, Zombies, Tele-DAD and even rogue decks rely on the graveyard to get their effects off. The best part of this si that it is chainable, and also has the ablity to completely ruin an opponent's strategy. I actually prefer it over Dimensional Fissure or Macro Cosmos, especially because of it's "detrimental" effect.

If you call the coin flip wrong, then you discard cards from your deck equal to the amount of cards in yout opponent's graveyard. Hmm, now which decks need a lot of cards from their deck in the graveyard? WEll, Lightsworn and ZOmbies come immediately to mind. Special Summoning Wulf and getting the graveyard loaded for Judgment Dragon are great for LIghtsworn. Not to mention that ZOmbies need Mezuki and Plaguespreader Zombie in the graveyard to get their comboes off.

I actually think that Big Burn is better, as it is completely reliable. With this card you have no idea which effect you are going to get, and it might be the one you don't want at the time.

Tradiational-1/5
Advanced-3/5

Toss a coin and call it. If you call it right, all your opponent's cards in
the Graveyard are removed from play immediately. If you call it wrong, send
a number of cards equal to the cards in your opponent's Graveyard from your
Deck to your Graveyard.

    Todayʼs card up for review is Fiend Comedian. I used to love this card back in the day, and it still has potential in the current meta. The first thing that comes to mind for me is to use this card in Lightsworn. So you call the flip right, you can do some serious damage, call it wrong and your deck will explode and win you the duel in most cases. Mill some Wulfs, Necro Gardnas, give yourself four lightsworns for Jd, or even give the chance to add J. Dragon back to your hand. Outside of that deck, you could throw this into your side board if you are gutsy. I could argue that there are better cards out there than this like Kycoo, and Soul Release, stuff that you know will go off with a better chance than comedian. But, Comedian, can hit more out of the graveyard, so it is really up to the player on what better suits you, and how much luck you have. Pulling this card off will basically wreck every top deck out there, and could pave the road to victory.

Trad: 2.5
Adv: 2.5/5
