Friday - Relinquished
Today's COTD is Relinquished. This is a very
card to understand and it doesnt help much that
Upperdeck put the font on this thing at -50. In
short, you can absorb 1 monster per turn and can have
only 1 monster absorbed by Relinquished at a time.
When you attack a Relinquished that has absorbed your
monster, you both take the damage, but the
Relinquished is not destroyed.
Personally, I dont think this card is worth it to try
and summon. It is too easily destroyed with
trap cards. Plus, it isn't all that easy to find
relinquished and the ritual to summon it.
On the plus side, it is rather easy to summon it with
the help of sonic bird or senju. And the 1 level
requirement of sacrificing monsters makes it really
easy to summon.
I give this card a 2.7/5. I just dont think it
worth it to go through all the trouble of using this
monster when it can be so easily killed.
I like this card....a LOT!
Yeah yeah, he's subject to being killed about a
billion different ways, but so is everything
else. Try to drop him mid-game and protect him
as best as possible. Being able to use your
opponent's army to beat them down is ridiculous.
I feel this guy has a really good deck he goes in, and
you play him there. The ritual part is annoying,
but just fine for what you get.

Friday - Relinquished
*Sorry guys, extra short CotD today. I have a
Biology project that's due. Bear with me!*
Back on subject...
Man, that's alot of text. You have to read it a
good ten times just to get used to it. Anyway,
it's a cool card and can be fairly competetive if used
Being able to have a constant flow of removal is what
makes it very nice. If you manage to play it and
be able to maintain it, it will be a tough job for
your opponent to deal with. The problem with the card
is that it can be Fissure-d and Tribute to the Doom-ed just
like any other monster. Solemn Judgment and Magic
Jammer will be helpful to any Relinquished based
Personally, I wouldn't take it to a tournament.

opponent's monster on the

You may use this effect only once per turn and can

Why should you use it?
*Could easily change the tide
*Combo with this card is ownage
Why shouldn't you use it?
*Waste of space
Reasons: Friday, end of the week, out of school. Yeah!
Finally! Well today
is a fun pick. This could also be a useful pick. The
This card can suck up your opponent monster, and like
the show, make them
take damage for attacking their own monster. This
could easily change the
tide if brought out. This can easily counter two big
monsters out. This card
with comboination of other cards is mega ownage. Maybe
with cards like
Messenger of Peacee and Imperial Decree, it can murder
monsters. Though any
good card has a negative point, this card has a
negative point. First off,
it's stats aren't that great, but that's not really a
big deal. Also since
this is a ritual monster, it can b one of those bad
cards in your hand, so
it can probably hurt you. Since it's a ritual monster,
it can be countered
easily with a Magic Jammer or fissure.
Rating: This card is not that bad of a card. With
cards to search out ritual
magic and monster, the Relinquished deck isn't that
bad, but sitll can't
compete with today's environment. Though there is a
better version of it,
called Thousand Eyes, which I like a little bit
better. This reason I would
give this card a 3.0. It's not good or bad. It's one
of those so and so
Conclusion: Awwww no, I absorb a Man-Eater Bug! It
just ate me up! No No No!
I will never see the day of light again.
It's Friday, and you know what that
means....fun pick special time!
This week, we're looking at a card I promised we
were gonna review, Relinquished.
Effect: This monster can take on the ATK
and DEF of 1 opponent's monster on the field (a
face-down monster results in an ATK and DEF of 0).
Treat the selected monster as an Equip Magic Card
and use it to equip "Relinquished." You
may use this effect only once per turn and can equip
Relinquished with only 1 monster at a time. When
your opponent's monster attacks this monster with an
ATK higher than Relinquished, the equipped monster
is destroyed instead of Relinquished. Any Life
Point damage you recieve from the attacking monster
while Relinquished is equipped is also inflicted on
Wow, that's a long effect! It will take too
long to dissect, so I'll just tell you that this
card's effectiveness is limited by the fact it has 0
attack and defense power, and once the card attached
to it is destroyed, you can attack it for a direct
damage attack. The card attached to it can
be destroyed by any Magic removal card, but you lose
a monster ;.;. I would hold off on using this
card until we get Thousand-Eyes Restrict
in the next set.
Should YOU play it?
I wouldn't, at least not yet. Thousand-Eyes
Restrict makes this card very
playable. It's good for fun decks, though.
Just don't forget the Black Illusion Ritual
card, as this is a Ritual monster.
Relinquished gets a 2.5 in my
rating book. It has potential, but it just
doesn't have the supporting cast yet.
Trunks the Swordsman
Relinquished - Magic Ruler - Ultra Rare
Well... One very interesting monster i must say. Well
first you must have the black illusion ritual (super
rare) and this card in your hand and of course a
monster with a level of 1 or more (geee that must be
hard huh?) and bang you got this absorbing beast.
Basically once hes out on the field he can absorb
ANYTHING even face down monsters BUT the flip effects
do not apply. Anyway when absorbing a monster you take
one of your opponents monsters and it turns into an
equipment magic card on your magic/trap zone. So yes
you can despell,heavy storm that monster away since
its considered equipment magic. Now when attacking
relinquished you basically hit your own creature and
your life points will get deducted and the monster
will be destroyed and relinquished will still be there
for another round of absorbing. So the best way to
stop him is to raigeki, fissure all that stuff. Hes
one evil ritual but weak to something like man eater
bug sucks -.-
If you can keep this guy from geting Fissured he will
tear down your
opponent, but if he gets Monster Reborned by your
opponent you will see how
much of a pain he is. This guy is one of the most
anoying monsters in this
game because he's really, really hard to kill... The
darn thing just won't
He has a pretty bad draw back but just having to wait
for a Magic card to be
able to beat your opponent wi this own Blue Eyes is
not alwayz that bad.
