Silent Doom I know we've seen Kaiba play a couple
of times, as well as Rebecca, and I'm sure others.
You can Special Summon a Normal Monster from your
Graveyard in defense position. Said Monster is not
able to attack. The Normal Monster part isn't as big
an issue as the not being able to attack part. Not
to mention there are countless better and less
restrictive cards for Special Summoning. Sure it can
help XYZ and Synchro Summon but still...
Continuing with our review of Joey’s World cards,
we are going to look at Silent Doom today. Silent
Doom allows us to special summon any normal monster
from our graveyard. It is a normal spell card so it
gives us some speed. The issue that I have with this
card is that you can only play it on your turn and
there are already numerous cards that can special
summon normal monsters from the grave, like
Birthright, Call of the Haunted, Supervise, Swing of
Memories, and Soul Resurrection.
Trap cards that resurrect normal monsters have the
advantage of being played on ether player’s turn and
therefore can also be used to defend your life
points. They have the disadvantage of being
susceptible to spell and trap removal and the fact
that you have to wait a turn to play them. You will
have to weigh the advantages and disadvantages to
both types of cards to determine which is best for
Silent Doom is a good card to play in Gemini decks
as you can special summon them and then normal
summon them to get their Gemini effects. It is also
good for Synchro and Xyz summoning in normal decks.
The problem is that these decks are too slow in
Hey guys today we are going to be doing a Spell
Card that debuted in Gladiator's Assault as a secret
rare and now has been reprinted in Joey's World as a
super rare. Now the revival of a normal monster may
not seem that great. The only card I can see worth
it is Blue-Eyes White Dragon, but I'd rather use
Maiden With Eyes of Blue to be able to fully abuse
Blue-Eye's capabilities. The next thing I can think
that is usable is Gemini monsters, but those cards
aren't really that great right now either. If
this card had an actual anime effect it would be a
lot better, being a monster reborn is pretty good
with you know, monster reborn being banned..
Avd: 2.5/5 (This card can be better)
