Back to the main COTD
This is a pretty simple matter. It's at 1
again, likely as a blow to Satellarknights.
While it's by no means a broken card (and at its
time of release, it was pretty original), by today's
standards it's a generic card design with no
weaknesses, risks, costs or costs. So putting
it at 1 will certainly result in more skillful deck
building, as to what you're going to put in those 2
It's an obvious straightforward card, staple to any
deck with 4+ Warrior-type monsters or a particular
Warrior-type monster they want in their hand the
first turn. It's been a competitive card for
over 11 years because Warrior-type is the most
supported type in Yugioh history. Every
collection needs this card, period.
Closing the week, we come to a very old card, that's
seen itself at various places over the years on the
Ban List, and even not on it at all, Reinforcements
of the Army. Currently also Restricted,
following suit with the past couple of cards of the
week. In short, the obvious Restriction here,
comes from the great deal of Warrior Decks and
Warrior Monsters in use at present, and having more
than one RotA available is just silly.
Honestly, you probably don't need more than one, and
it gives you extra slots for tech or whatever else
you'd like asset wise for your Deck. Sometimes
a Restriction like this opens the Deck up a little.
Hello Pojo Fans,
RoTA doesn't need much a review. It was at 3, and
it's too good to be at 3. 1-for-1 search for a
monster you can Normal Summon at the very least?
Yes, that has to be dealt with. Tellarknights
searched out anything they wanted in their
archetype, giving them a total of 6 searcher cards,
while Nekroz could run 3 and have even more
searching options in their deck. Samurai decks
already have 3 Smoke Signal, so having 3 RoTA was
also a little much even if Gateway of The Six
remains banned in the TCG.
While limiting RoTA won't slow down Tellarknights
much in my opinion, it does take away two options
for them and Nekroz, and that was the point.
Until Next Time
Reinforcement of the Army is so
good it has it's own acronym as a word in the
Yu-Gi-Oh! dictionary. Have you ever heard of a ROTA
like effect? Of course you have. This card searches
any Level 4 or lower Warrior-type monster from the
Deck to the Hand for free. ROTA effects are effects
that search from the Deck to the Hand and most of
those cards are absolutely necessary for their
archetype. This card is even better because it has
the vast type of Warrior. Having multiple in the
Hand effectively thins the Deck and improves your
odds of winning. ROTA and cards like ROTA are so
good that their specific counter, Mistake, is worth
$12 bucks. The Banhammer was merciful and let us
keep 1 in the Deck, but this could be banned and
almost everyone would agree that it makes sense.
Score: 5/5 You can splash 3
Warriors in your Deck and this would still be

Come out and plaaaaaaaay!” -from
“The Warriors” (1979)
week we've been focusing on banned or restricted
cards. Not we have a card that's versatile in nearly
every deck and arguably deserves the nerfing it got.
Friends, meet the bread and butter of Warrior decks:
Reinforcement of the Army.
shouldn't have to explain how good this card is, but
since I'm a card reviewer I have no choice.
Basically, if you're lacking that one Level 4
Warrior that you desperately need at any given time,
this is your savior. If you want to build up your
field with monsters for an XYZ or other Special
Summon, this is your fishing pole. If you have a
deck that deaperately needs more speed, this is your
engine. If you're playing with Level 4 Warriors, WHY
AREN'T YOU PLAYING THIS CARD?
sure, the game's gotten a heck of a lot more
versatile than when it started. In the old days,
Warriors were awesome and this card made them even
more awesome. Nowadays your deck might be more
inclined to play Rocks or Beasts or even Plants
(huge shocker there). But even now, there's room for
ROTA. It's just that good.
Final Score: 4/5 (Not everyone plays with Warriors)
Hello guys, so
here we have one of the best search cards in the
game. Ever since its relese, this card has jumped
around on the ban list and now we are back to one.
No much to say but being able to search your deck
for any warrior monster level 4 or lower is great.
Searching in this game is awesome. You thin out your
deck in the process. A one for one. This card has
seen its play in many decks, Heros, Sknights,
warrior tool box, etc. Not much else to say. Just a
decent card that does something simple yet great.
Have a great weekend guys.
