Here's a card some players who haven't been around a LONG time might not be familiar with, Tsukuyomi.  You're allowed one Book of Moon at present, but I think Tsuku is a superior choice in about any situation.  We don't have Magician of Faith legal at present, but this is the kind of card coming back that can really shake up a Format.  Tsuku can be used offensively and defensively, like Book of Moon, but being a Spirit Monster, has the potential to be used more than once.  Granted it doesn't bounce back to your Hand if Special Summoned, only when Normal or Flipped, but you're not likely to ever Special Summon Tsuku anyway.  I think you're more likely to use Tsuku offensively, and more likely to use Book of Moon defensively.  Both cards, while doing similar things, work in different situations.  But the ability to stop an attack or reuse an effect isn't to be taken lightly.

Ratings:

Traditional:  3/5 
Advanced:  5/5
Art:  5/5  Definitely one of the cooler looking Spirits

Our last card of the week is a card that has not seen the light of day in an advanced format in six years. Tsukuyomi was last seen in 2006, causing your monsters to go face down , then retreating back to the hand, only to return a turn later to do more damage by forcing one of your monsters to go face down yet again. A level 4 Spellcaster-Type/Spirit monster, with 100 ATK and 1400 DEF.

This card cannot be special summoned. This card returns to the owner's hand during the endphase of the turn it was normal summoned or flipped face up. When this card is normal summoned, or flipped face up, target 1 face up monster on the field and turn it into face down defense position.

This card has two things it is good for. Solving the problem that bigger monsters present by turning them face down in defense position and attacking it or using Nobleman of Crossout on it. And the second thing is re-using monsters that has flip effects, like Ryko, Penguin Soldier and Snowman Eater. Since Tsukuyomi goes back to the hand at the endphase you normal or flipped it face up, I would hope you have another monster on the field. I can see why it was brought back at 1, seeing how this is a format that heavily relies on special summoning like crazy and this card can turn all that work into dust just by summoning it and getting rid of bigger monsters by hitting them where it hurts, usually by having a weak defense stat. Some people weren't too happy to see it return, some were. I'm on the fence. I think this card is worth a spot in a Spellcaster build, or Wind-Ups to get the most out of them. If you can't find a place for it in your main deck, im sure there's a spot for it in your side deck.

Traditional: 3.5
Advanced: 4

I have to admit to being surprised that the big T was finally taken off the banned list, but then again, flip-effect monsters don't see as much play these days as they used to. Tsukuyomi has one purpose in any deck: to let you get another use out of your flip-effect monsters. There aren't that many that are used nowadays, but Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter and Gravekeeper's Spy do still see consistent play, so this card can really speed up decks that use those cards. I wouldn't be surprised to see this start showing up in Gravekeeper's, Lightsworn and Chaos Dragon decks (which need a boost after being handicapped by the restriction of Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon). A good effect that isn't as useful as it used to be, so it was definitely time for her to come back to the legal side of play.
