CGChewie Thur. - Raigeki

Easily the best card in the english set, meet Raigeki. Of course there is 
the obvious use when your opponent used that Ultimate Offering turn two and 
has a 4 creature lead on you. Or when you face a BEWD, then drawing a Trap 
Hole. But let's look a tad bit deeper shall we?

This card basically says "Attack your opponent's Life Points directly and 
laugh at all his hard work go down the drain." You remove any sort of 
defense they might have built up. The best way to utlize this card is by 
amassing a vicious lot of monsters. You can increase the pain dealt with it 
by adding a few Trap Holes to the field. Sure, the tips may sound general, 
but this card has such great synergy by itself, that any other cards only 
strengthen it.

Given its power, how can you stop it? Well, I'm afraid it isn't easy. You 
can try to De-Spell it if its played on the field, but the chances of that 
happening are slim to none. You can try to use Card Destruction to give 
yourself draw power, and discard it, but you'll never know if it is in their 
hand. The Inexperienced Spy can give you a little peek at their hand, but 
that combo is worthless and should be thrown out the window.

So given the "ways" to stop it, the only thing you'll be able to do is 
recover from it. Cards like Swords of Revealing Light and Ultimate Offering 
help you out, but are vulnerable to De-Spell/Trap. A better alternative is 
to use Monster Reborn and Soul Exchange. They will help you recover faster 
than you would already be able to. Finally, you could release your own 
"Raigeki" through a Dark Hole. Hey you have nothing to lose, so punish them 
for it!

Rating: 5/5 You play this.

Raigeki

Causaul Play: 5
Tourney Play: 5

Pros:
-well the obvious
-clears your oppenents field
-its just good

Cons:
.
..
...
....
Been here for 5 mins can't think of any...

RFP: Well this truly is one of the sickest cards in the game. One of the 
cards that will be forever good. I mean its good for when your oppenent only 
has like 1600 life points, and then you just win the game. Also if you are 
about to unleash a huge attack you could clear the field, and just do heavy 
damage. Thats really all there is to this card I mean its a great removal 
card thats about it....

RFC:........................................ OH WAIT! THERE are NONE O_o

Combos:

Raigeki + Monster reborn: Pretty Simple all you need to do is raigeki get 
rid of there bewd or sumoned skull then do massive damage to them.

Raigeki + change of heart: Need that extra 2000? Change of heart there 
summoned skull/other high attacking monz and then win the game by clearing 
there field.

Well I am sorry if this cotd was so short, but its raigeki there is nothing 
really to say about it. ANYONE whose anyone will play it and if they dont 
then there excuse better be I don't own any :*( um yea anyways thats the 
cotd have fun and happy dueling....

>>>ZaP<<<
SomeGuy Raigeki, the best Magic Card in the set. This card is completely Broken. Broken. Broken.

Absolutely NO reason to not play it. Raigeki is definitely the best monster removal. Can wipe out your opponents army in one blow while not harming yours. A big improvement over Dark Hole (Which you should also be playing). Some basic plays you can make with Raigeki are:

Stall with Swords of Revealing Light then the turn before the last counter is going to be removed, cast Raigeki and destroy all of your opponent's monsters which were preparing to attack you next turn.

Clear the way to attack your opponent's life points.

Even if your opponent has only a Summoned Skull or some other high level monster in play don't be afraid to cast Raigeki if you don't have a Fissure or Man-Eater Bug in your hand. 2500+ damage will add up quickly and being able to stop that threat while salvaging what monsters you have left is a very good thing.

Rating: 5/5

Final Comments: If you like this card wait until you see Mirror Force in Metal Raiders. ;)
