Lullaby of Obedience
Boy did this card cause a firestorm when it was
first revealed. There were only two opinions: that
it would be broken and everyone would run it, or it
would be terrible and no one would. I was of the
latter belief, for the same reason everyone on my
side noted. The opponent gets to pick what happens
to the card. This is a big deal, and it’s the reason
no one in the OCG runs it, and the reason no one
will ever main deck it outside of maybe tournaments
clogged with only one tier-1 deck available at any
I guess it’s a shame, but I could see the potential
of Lullaby of Obedience if you got to pick what
happened with the card. It would be broken, really.
Add Maxx C. Special Summon Dragon Spirit of White.
Two good things right? Well, in the actual version,
the opponent special summons the Maxx C and adds
Dragon Spirit of White to your hand full of ABC
support. You just wasted 2000 LP. I think people get
seduced by the possibilities of this spell in mirror
matches, but that’s just silly. That makes it a side
deck card, not something you main deck. Am I
supposed to get excited about a high-cost card I can
only use after duel 1? And something that still may
benefit my opponent in the end, and probably will?
And don’t even get me started on the OTK using it
combination with Present Exchange, Engraver of the
Mark and Horakhty. It’s not even worth going into.
I don’t see a future for this card. You just can’t
expect a format to ever come that will somehow be
filled only with decks where Lullaby can always be
useful. It’s just never going to happen. For every
mirror match you face, there’s going to be a dozen
other types of decks you play, and Lullaby will be
the ultimate dead weight. It really is a terrible
card, and would probably only see real play in OTK
decks that use it in some dastardly way, as
mentioned above. And you all know how I feel about
Future Potential: 1/5
I had to read this card twice just to make sure,
but I'll clarify: this card is not just a Dark
Designator. You actually get the card that you
select. But the opponent does get to choose
where it goes. Keep in mind that this can be a
downside in some occasions. If it's a high
Level monster, the opponent would put it in your
hand. Actually, I think they would do that in
most cases unless it's like a flip effect monster or
a pendulum with a powerful spell effect.
2000 life points is the cost. Pretty fair.
Unless your low on LP, you can use it anytime.
But having LP cost cards in your deck does prevent
you from using other LP cost cards. It's 1 for
1 on card advantage, which is good, and you get to
pick which card you do get.
Against mirror matches, this can be an impactful
card because you have a wide selection of cards you
can use. It won't be a consistent card for
every match-up though. Some decks won't have
monsters that could be of practical use to you,
although denying the opponent one of their key
monsters can be a good thing. Overall, it
looks like a strong side deck option. I hope
I'm not grading on a curve here, but it really does
seem like the best card of the ones we're reviewing
Hello Pojo Fans,
Lullaby of Obedience has been hyped for some time.
Players have waited for it, hoped it would not
be nerfed, and this card doesn't disappoint.
2000 Life Points is a steep cost, but to pull a
monster out of your opponents deck and either get it
to their hand or Special Summon it is worth it.
Ignoring the requirements for summoning makes it
even more worth your while to play one. While the
opponent gets to decide which effect is applied,
they are losing a monster while you are breaking
even. You are likely always going to get the monster
to your hand, but if it can be summoned immediately,
you will. Black Luster Soldier-Envoy, Mega Monarchs,
any boss monster from any deck you face is yours.
Most players are encyclopedias of information when
playing the game, and they know most of the monsters
run in a certain deck, ANY deck. For 2000LP any of
your monsters can be theirs, that can change the
No restrictions on how many you play per turn, or on
summoning, Lullaby of Obedience should see some
playability. I really want to see someone play a
deck with Spell Economics, this card, and cards
revolving around Spell Econ.

Until Next Time
2000 Life Points is too expensive for this Normal
Spell Card. Lullaby of Obedience is a gamble in that
after you declare a Monster name, your opponent
decides where it goes. If they even have it in their
deck. If they drew it, then you don't get it. If it
is in their deck they put it in your hand or on your
field. This could be very useful in mirror matches
since the same deck list will grant more knowledge.
Or just call out Solemn Strike, but then you're
paying 2000 LP and then 1500 LP. Yep, Lullaby of
Obedience is too expensive for me, but it could be
useful some of the time.
