This is a fun looking card, just starting with that. Release Restraint Wave fits the playable Tech category, but also the won't be played because of my cost category. You can destroy a face-up Equip Magic card you control and destroy it to destroy all set Magic and Trap cards your opponent has.

So, unless you destroy at least two cards, you won't even break even.
Furthermore, how often do you have a face-up Equip Magic card?

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1.5/5
Art: 4/5

Today’s card up for review is Release Restraint Wave. Who doesn’t like a Feather Duster like effect? Only real problem I see, which is big, is the lack of equip cards in the game. Even if there was good equips in the game, I don’t think this card would be that great. The game is too advanced for Equips right now. This card will have potential, and that is it for now. If the game slows down a little, then equip decks could be decent again

Adv: 1.5/5

Release Restraint Wave ...

Meh ... this card is ... Wellll .... It does something, and it does something VALUABLE. Spell and Trap destruction is always a very welcome commodity. And the more 1-sided, the better. But this thing comes with a cost AND a drawback. You have to first have an Equip spell card in play. Most people play with few to NO equips at all to begin with. I suppose you could use that 4-star Synchro monster to shortcut that. But why would u want to? And then u have to destroy it to get RRW's effect. Right there, already, its not really worth the trouble. And next, the drawback is that it only tags SET spells and traps. This being a normal spell card, its as slow as can be, and all your opponent has to do is chain to its activation and any of their now faceup cards should be fine.

Yeah, this one is kinda easy.

Traditional: 1/5

Its the end of the week ladies and gents. We're actually going to look at a common card that deserves the foil treatment. Yes this card is based on equip spell cards but it only makes an old deck better. Ben Kei OTK was quite the big thing but didnt always have a way around the opponents back row. Hoping to pull Heavy Storm, Ben Kei and equip spells in your opening hand was always asking too much. Sending an equip spell to the graveyard that you control to destroy all set spell and traps your opponent has is pretty good. Heck its not much different from Harpies Feather Duster. Only difference is face up spells and traps survive. With so many equip spell cards out there, somehow I think Ben Kei decks are still surviving out there, and with the release of more and more potential equip spells, its possible that with Hidden Armory and Release Restraint Wave, Ben Kei will only get better. Only flaw to Restraint Wave is a lot of people run chainable cards but thats the same draw back to Heavy Storm really.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5
