I decided to pick the oldest of the cards for Throwback Thursday, and this one is a personal favorite of mine. Arguably the most iconic card in the game, Monster Reborn.
 
Monster Reborn does the obvious and revives a monster from either GY. This card is nearly immune to power-creep. I don't even think Soul Charge can out power it due to the drawbacks it has, but they are on an equal level. Monster Reborn can steal a game or extend your plays, making it nearly a staple in every deck. With Links out now, this card just gets better as it can help you keep your Link combos going.
 
The card is easily one of the greatest Spell cards of all time, and I will love to see it come back. The rating might be a little biased, but it is such a good card that it does deserve it.
 
Advanced Rating: 5/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Monster Reborn may be another card that will never see the light of day off the ban list, but who knows when it comes to the ban list.
 
Best. Card. Ever. Any monster that can be Special Summoned from the grave is a target for this card, and either graveyard is up for grabs. In top-deck wars this was game-winning. It is a card that can abuse effects that aren't once per turn, add to field prescience, or help bring you back from the brink. It deserved to be banned and even changing it to limit itself to your graveyard would likely not bring it off the ban list. It is too good of a card and the only time it is useless is if you don't have a grave or are locked down via something stoping your Special Summon or playing this card.
 
Rarely does a card get a perfect, but this card deserves it. It has existed since inception of the game, is legendary from the original Yu-Gi-Oh, and remains all-too powerful.
 
Advanced- 5/5 (if legal)
Art- 4/5

Todays banned card is Monster Reborn, a normal spell card released way back in Legend of Blue-Eyes. A card that was banned for good reason, but yet almost everyone wants off the ban list.
 
Monster Reborn is very simple. You target a monster in either player's grave and special summon it to your field for free. Every deck can use and abuse it. It's capable of pushing for further advantage or outright turning games round. It's just THAT good.
 
Advanced 5/5 Short and sweet on this one

Monster Reborn is just too wrong to come back either (much like I referred to Pot of Greed yesterday).  While no card advantage here, at least immediately, you certainly can win games and come out easily on the plus side just by dropping this card.  It is a tad slower with the wording of Targeting the Monster now being in the card text, but this card also needs to stay Banned forever.

When this card came out, it was fair.  Special Summoning was very rare, Waboku was viable enough for a player to have a defense against an OTK and monster removal was plentiful. 

However, as the card pool expanded, we had too many cards which were doing the same things.  So Reborn became an easy ban for Goat format, which still had Premature and Call. 

Too much combo and abuse potential today.  However being able to summon an opponents own monster against them always felt epic.
