Creeping Darkness is certainly an interesting little
Magic card. By removing two Dark
Monsters from your Graveyard from play, you can add
a Level 4 Dark Monster from your Deck to your Hand.
Let's look at that, technically that's a -2, the
card itself plus the two removed Monsters, just to
add ONE to your Hand. Although removing Monsters
isn't a bad thing usually, and retrieving them,
especially Dark ones, is even easier, depending on
what Monster you choose you can make an advantage
out of this fairly simply. This card is hardly
broken, and I'd appreciate if it were add a Level 4
or lower Dark Monster, but still, this card can be
useful enough I think.
3/5 for reasons listed above
Dark decks get a boost from today’s card.
Creeping Darkness does two really good things for
dark monsters. First, it banishes dark monsters from
the graveyard. That is perfect for use with Escape
from a Dark Dimension or Return from a Different
Dimension. It is also helps to regulate the number
of dark monsters in your graveyard for use with Dark
Second, it lets us search for a level 4 monster from
our deck. It is a ROTA for dark monsters that you
can play in threes. If you are playing a TeleDad
type deck, you are searching for cards like Dark
Grepher, Summoner Monk, Destiny Hero-Diamond Dude,
and maybe even Doomcaliber Knight.
There are a number of dark decks in play today like
Blackwings that can make use of this card, but the
only deck of any relevance that I know of is Dark
World. When used with yesterday’s card, Trancer
Archfiend, Creeping Darkness works like a charm.
There are dark themes coming out in the future so
keep this card in your collection.
Today, we look at Creeping Darkness. A Normal
spell card. It says: Banish 2 DARK monsters from
your graveyard; Add 1 level 4 DARK monster from your
deck to your hand. A decent card for the DARK decks
running around out there, but there are downsides to
this. 2 DARKS in the grave shouldn't be a problem,
and banishing them both for a level 4, and a level 4
only DARK monster. Your best bet is Blackwings and
maybe....maybe, Gravekeepers. It also helps out
Necroface a bit. But this and Dark Armed Dragon may
not get along as you want those dark in the grave to
use for his summoning conditions/effect later. An ok
card for a great theme, but you have a lot more
cards that do better things. If you're gonna try
this card, I suggest casual first. Give it a good
Tomorrow: Only the most regal can stay in this jail.
"Banish 2 DARK monsters from your Graveyard; add 1
Level 4 DARK monster from your Deck to your hand."
This card is great for searching out cards from
any DARK deck. Not the best for Chaos or Dark Armed
Dragon, obviously, but great for decks like Dark
World, Blackwings, Inzektors or Gravekeepers, where
you don't have to have monsters in the Graveyard.
All-in-all, a great card despite the heavy cost for
This is the only one of
week's cards I have not heard of before, and I am
A semi-splashable card, this card will literally net
any Level 4 Dark from your Deck for a fairly
negligible cost. I'm sure many other cards benefit
from the banishment as well, such as Cyber Ouroboros,
Necroface, perhaps the new Dragon strategy of
throwing monsters into the Different Dimension...
And hey, it works with Trace Archfiend in so many
ways! Another notable target is Summoner Monk, which
will very quickly transition into a Rank 4 Xyz or
Level 8 Synchro.
I wouldn't run more than two, though. It is also
limited by the fact it searches for strictly Level
4, and the lower-Level monsters have slowly grown
more prominent in the Dueling meta.
Advanced: 3/5 (Use it if you think if can help you.
It's a decent splash if you have a healthy amount of
Darks, but beware that the cost doesn't hurt you too
Aesthetics: 3/5 And thus, the Corrosive Contagion
Infestation turned Gishki Noellia into Evigishki
