This card has combo written all over it.  When someone finds that combo, lemme know.  I'll play good cards in the meanwhile.  I'm not a big fan of 1-for-3ing myself.

wartortle32 Wednesday - Darkness Approaches

Today's card is darkness approaches.  This card will let you flip a monster back face down at the cost of discarding 2 cards. 

First of all, I want to note that with this card, it is now possible to get a monster in face down attack mode.  if you use this on a monster that is in face up attack mode, it will go to face down attack mode.

Is this card worth it?  two cards to discard is rather pricy.  The main use to this card is to let you use your flip effects again and again.  However, I dont think any flip effect is worth 3 cards. 

I give this card a 2.5/5.  It could be useful in a pinch, but the discard is just too high for it to be all that playable.

Wednesday - Darkness Approaches

Type: Magic
Effect: Discard 2 cards from your hand.  Choose 1 face-up monster and turn it face-down.

To put plainly, I don't like this card at all. It's best use is on Magician of Faith but even then, it's not always going to be worth the 2 cards discarded.

In Duel Monsters, 2 cards is an expensive price to pay. This just ends up being a three (The 2 cards you need to discard along with the card itself) for one deal. Thats alot of card disadvantage...

Rating: 1.2/5


IQ

Darkness Approaches

Hmmm... what would be the best use for this card? You could use it on a Magician of Faith to get a Pot 0.o and even then you're just breaking even. It's just not worh using on a Man Eather Bug or a Hane-hane because it's costing you 3 cards to deal with one of your opponent's monster and if it gets countered you just lost 3 cards. >,<

I still think it has pontetial for some abuse and wouldn't be surprised if
someone figures out a combo with it but until then trade them, burn them,
eat them but never, ever add them to your deck..... for your own good. ~.o

Rating 1.4

Darkness Approaches
Type: Magic
Effect: Discard 2 cards from your hand. Choose 1
face-up monster and turn it face-down

Well dang. Are you seriously that suicidal to use this card to flip a man eater bug or magician of faith down? This card is okay but seriously though. If you play 2-3 MoF and 3 MEB you don't need to even bother with this card. The other bad side to this card is that it will still stay in the same position. So a face-down magician of faith isn't so great when they attack it x_X. This card isn't really necessary. Nah don't use it ^^

Rating 1.5
Yonex Darkness -- Darkness Approaches

Introduction: Bam! Pow! Poof! Zing! Doing! Raigeki?!

Normal Magic
Discard 2 cards from your hand. Select 1 face-up monster and flip it
face-down, but do not change its battle position.

Why should you use it?
*Reuse Flip-Effect monsters
*Remove fissure bait
*Can be any monster

Why shouldn't you use it?
*Discard 2 cards
*Monsters won't stay alive long enough


Reasons: Today is Darkness Approaches. This can be a very interesting card.
You can use those Magicain of Faith's again (yeah!), Man-eater bugs (yeah!),
and maybe even Hane-Hane (uh maybe not). Using this card can get rid of that
"weak" ATK monster by flipping it over, and killing the higher ATK monster.
Finally it can be used on any monster. Which for that reason of the above.
The negative effects of 2 cards is very harsh. If you think about it it's
more of trading 3 cards for -> Raigeki? Not really worth it imo. But can be
a very interesting TeCH cards. Also this card might be useless at times,
because these days, monster can barely stay alive. Though the good old days
attacking with MoF for 5 turns and making your opponent cry is still alive.

Rating: Though an average card, it may have potential, but not a good card
overall. This card would get a 2.0 in my book. I really can seee someone
abusing this card. By the way "if memorary serves me right" (Iron Chef ^_^)
there is going to be a better card with no drawbacks and has the same
effect. I believe it's called, Book of the Moon / Sun.

Conclusion: I see Darkness Aproaching, and I think it's approaching towards
this card and will never EVER seen sunlight.
