Hello Pojo Fans,
Pot of Avarice was a great card that even more today
could be abused.
Send 5 monsters back to the deck to draw 2. With
Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and now Link Monsters in the
game, it's entirely possible to send the 5 back and
draw 2 from the deck without any going into the main
deck. That scenario would be a +2, while regaining
all 5 of your Extra Deck monsters. With Avarice you
could regain access to monsters you only could run
one of in the Extra Deck, or just have a way of
recycling monsters without adding specific support
like Warrior Returning Alive. Late game you could
activate two Pot of Avarice and get a serious
advantage. This card gives you cards while
preventing deck-out, and puts resources back into
either the Main or Extra Deck.
If they made it a “once per turn” Avarice may come
back, much like Stratos, but unlikely.
Until Next Time
If you ever noticed when you opened up a Structure
Deck that you got a Jar of Avarice, it is likely
because OCG had Pot of Avarice in theirs and it is
banned over in the TCG. The question is, is Pot of
Avarice worth its slot on the Forbidden and Limited
Pot of Avarice is a simple card that allows you to
put 5 monsters back from the GY into the deck and
you can draw 2 cards. The ability to gain resources
back is always great, Daigusto Emeral is considered
an Extra Deck Staple for a reason, and the Draw 2 is
powerful as we can see from Pot of Greed being
forbidden. This card is a dead draw early in the
game, but can help you win a game later on.
It is still a great card for gathering resources
back and gaining advantage, but it being a dead draw
early game makes me feel it is safe to come back.
Advanced Rating: 4/5
Pot of Avarice...for me, this particular Pot is one
of those cards Banned that I understand...and at the
same time, don't feel is necessary. You target
5 Monsters in your Graveyard and return them to the
Deck, and then you Draw 2 cards. Granted, you
likely can use this very early in a Duel until you
get the required cards in your Graveyard to use, but
it adds some balance to it's brethern Pot of Greed
(which is an automatic +1, no cost, and can never,
EVER return). Avarice is dangerous though
because you get the opportunity, at least, to reuse
these cards you cycle back to the Deck. That's
more important, or at least dangerous, in my
opinion, than being able to Draw the two cards.
Could this come back? I'd be okay with it,
4/5 (if legal)
