Welcome to a short Holiday week.  Monster Slots, a rather interesting Magic card opens our week.  This card allows you to select a face up Monster you control, and one of the same Level in your Graveyard.  The Monster in your Graveyard is removed from play, and then you Draw a card.  You reveal that card, and if said card is a Monster, specificly of the same Level as the original Monsters, the new Monster can be Special Summoned.  This card is obviously a combo card.  Fun to use, but not very practically.  This is a -1, whether or not it works.


1.5/5 all
Art:  3/5


It's Thanksgiving this week here on COTD and The Mighty Pojo has granted us a short review week. First up is Monster Slots. A normal spell card and it is an interesting one. You target 1 face up monster you control and one in your grave with the same level, banish the one you chose in the grave, draw and reveal 1 card, if it a monster with the same level as the monster you control, special summon it. What could have been a better card is held back with too many "must be this level" restrictions. If it was something more like if the revealed card is a level 4 or lower monster, then we're talking. Too much set up for a monster that needs to be the same level as one on your field. You're welcome to try Monster Slots, but don't be surprised if it blows up in your face. The only good side is, you get to draw a card, but your opponent gets to know what it is. You wanna draw a card? Try Pot of Duality or Upstart Goblin.

Tomorrow: X marks the spot.


Starting off this week is a common from Photon Shockwave that I have high hopes for, Monster Slots!
Monster Slots is a Normal Spell Card that requires you to control a monster and for you to banish a monster of the same Level in your Graveyard. Doing that allows you to draw a card and reveal it, and if it also shares the same Level as your monster on the field, you Special Summon it.
Decks that use a lot of monsters of the same Level (Gadgets anyone?) can make good use of this. You don't have to give up any hand or field presence to use this card, since the drawn card will either become hand or field advantage making up for you using this card. A solid +0 card.
Hopefully this card will find a good use in many decks.

Shorter week because of a longer weekend. We’re still on Photon Shockwave so let’s talk about Monster Slots!

Today’s card is a spell card with a lengthy setup to it. First, you need a monster on the field and a monster in the graveyard with the same level. After you target both of those, you banish the one in the graveyard. Then you draw a card and reveal that card. Last, you special summon that card if it’s a monster with the same level as the one still on the field.

This can be used in a few different ways with the most apparent ones being Xyz summoning and Synchro summoning. But since you’ve banished something, you can also provide a target for your Leviair the Sea Dragon. I could also see this being used in a Piper deck due to the higher number of monsters with the same level.

I’d recommend that you only run this if your deck is fairly predictable with its levels. And I also recommend that you only run one or two of this card if you do. Since Monster Slots requires a face-up monster, it’ll become a deadly dead draw when you’re falling behind.

Traditional: 1/5 (I really don’t think this would help much)
Advanced: 2.5/5 in regular builds, but a 3.5/5 if your deck is fairly uniform in level
Art: 3/5 (take a chance, fail at it)

Angelic Nightmare

Hello to our 3 day week of review, I’m Angelic Nightmare and this, (Monster Slots) is Las Vegas’ worst nightmare.

We have a spell that lets you banish a monster from your grave with the same level of one of your face up monsters, draw a card and possibly special summon it. This set is full is decent common cards, something you can’t really say too much about other sets. At worst, this card replaces itself and you just thinned your deck out a little bit more. Granted this card is a little situational with the requirements, but it can come in handy if you draw the one card you need to have game.

Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 2/5


Hey all sorry I havn't been around for the last two weeks, but I have been busy with school and stuff.

To start this short week because of the American Thanksgiving. (me being Canadian and all we celebrate it in October)
we have Monster Slots:
Target 1 face-up monster you control and 1 monster in your Graveyard with the same Level; banish the target from the Graveyard, then draw 1 card and reveal it, then if the card you drew is a monster with the same Level as the monster on the field, Special Summon it.

Well this an interesting effect, where for banishing 1 monster from your graveyard you get to draw 1 card with a chance of summoning a monster if you drew it with that card, I do like this card, asI don't find much cost with that card. simple effect you should try it out.

"Target 1 face-up monster you control and 1 monster in your Graveyard with the same Level; banish the target from the Graveyard, then draw 1 card and reveal it, then if the card you drew is a monster with the same Level as the monster on the field, Special Summon it."

Well, this is an... Interesting card. To be honest, there's very few decks this card would be even remotely workable in. the only one I've ever run that it could ever fit into was my Level 4 Normal Monster deck. IT's far too situational to use and the effect, while alright, can be much more easily accomplished in other, more reliable methods.
