One for One, an incredibly simple Magic card that is
now Restricted that allows you to send one Monster
Card from your Hand to the Graveyard to Special
Summon one Level 1 Monster from your Hand or Deck.
All right, let's start with the basics here...One
for One, appropriately named, is actually a Two for
One...at least in terms of actual cards, as you give
up the Monster discard, and this card. Next, this
obviously doesn't matter much, as you're most likely
Synchro Summoning, and probably winning this turn.
Finally, the fact that you can Special Summon the
card from your Hand or your Deck is awesome. If you
don't have the necessary monster(s) to Synchro
Summon, you should still have your Normal Summon
after, so that's great too.
One for One
There is not a lot to say about this card. it is a
Normal Spell in that you discard a card and Special
Summon a level one monster from your deck. This is
not nearly as game breaking as othe rcards out
there. It does allow you to access King of the Skull
Servants, Cyber Valley, XX-Saber Ragigura and a few
The card was limited because of the X-Saber handless
deck, in which it was used to fetch the crucial
Ragigura and speed the deck to Cheetah proportions.
It would hae seen play in a really cool Skull
Servant deck, but instead it was limited, and will
only make that deck slightly better.
You can still use this card to great effect, but
until there are more of them to use, it will not see
nearly as much play as it should have.
One for One …
Seems like a simple enough spell card, right? …
One for One is one of those spells that u SWEAR is
good, but u have trouble putting your finger on just
WHY exactly … The answer is - its versatility and
combo potential. Before even beginning to imagine
WHICH cards u would be pitching and grabbing, the
first words that will hook u are - “send 1 monster
in your hand to the graveyard”. In this day and age
– shooting from the grave is all the rage, so it’s a
non-stop search for new ways to put monsters in the
graveyard, short of losing them in battle or waiting
till your hand is full. Then the 2nd part – “special
summon from deck” is what reels u in. Any free
summon is a welcome one. So a card that allows u to
do both things should instantly tell that it’s worth
But then u start to scratch your noodle when u see
that u only get a level 1 monster … not bad, so then
the question is WHICH monster?? – Tuners are always
a popular choice. Mind Master – everyone seems to
love – will fit the bill quite nicely. The new Vayu
does so as well. Treeborn Frog, if nothing else.
Cyber Valley – I’ve used before. There's a bunch, so
dig in your binders, piles of commons, and use ur
Even if u aren’t getting the most usage of the level
1 monster u bring, if NOTHING else – u can just
tribute it for a Monarch or something, as u still
have your normal summon to play with.
Yeah, I’m done talking about this. It’s a good card,
N o V a
One for One, quite the
over looked card till the ban list. One for One
allows you to send 1 Monster Card in your hand to
the Graveyard, then you Special Summon 1 Level 1
monster from your hand or deck. At first a lot of
people would probably think: "What Level 1 monster
would I ever use?". Well, lets make a list of some
level one monsters that decent or good decks would
and can use.
Cyber Valley - SalvoDAD
Alien Ammonite - Aliens
Treeborn Frog - Monarchs
Mind Master - Monarchs
Fortune Lady Light - Fortune Ladies
Now there are probably more I haven't mentioned but
above are some really good examples. Cyber Valley
especially, seeing as how you can use Machine
Duplication on it to get what you lost for One for
One's cost back. With it at 1 on the list, and its
many targets its not much of a surprise that it got
