Relinquished?  Been a long time since Relinquished has been able to wreck things in the tournament scene, no?  Although I suppose that was just as much, if not more so, Thousand Eye Restrict.  Relinquished does do some really cool, and annoying things.  TER is Banned, Metamorphosis is Banned, and even if they weren't, using Relinquished to get to TER would be a bit absurd.  If you're going for a straight Pegasus Deck, I mean...Relinquished needs its own Deck to work anyway.  Assuming it works at all, I haven't seen it used in years and years.
 
Ratings:

Traditional:  At least in Traditional you CAN use TER and Metamorphosis, but I'm not sure why you'd use Relinquished too.  1.5/5
 
Advanced:  2/5
 
Art:  5/5

Finally this week is Relinquished, one of my favourite cards of all time and it hasn’t been reviewed since its release.

Statwise Relinquished isn’t much, it is a DARK/Spellcaster so there is plenty of support there, with 0 ATK and DEF which is bad no matter what the level of the monster. Of course Relinquished is a Ritual Monster which is sadly under-supported but Relinquished is level 1 so getting him out is very easy.
 
Of course Relinquished’s main thing is his great effect, he can target 1 of your opponent’s monsters and that monster equips to Relinquished, turning that monster’s ATK and DEF against its owner. Plus while it has a monster equipped, the opponent takes any battle damage involving Relinquished making them carefully when attacking Relinquished, especially when the equipped monster is destroyed instead of Relinquished..
 
Despite being one of my Favourite cards, Relinquished isn’t perfect. It is a ritual monster so all the problems that they have apply to him. Also if he loses his equipped monster due to battle or generally a card effect or his effect is negated then you are stuck with a monster with 0 ATK that is probably in ATK mode.

Overall a fun card and it can be quite dangerous but being under supported as a ritual; it probably needs its own deck.

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced:  3/5
