Pojo's Yu-Gi-Oh Card of the Day

Monster Reborn

Card Number - LOB-118

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating

Date Reviewed - 12.02.03

Previously Reviewed: 4.19.02

MerrilHess Monster Reborn 

Select 1 Monster Card from either your opponent's or your own graveyard and place it on the field under your control in attack or defense position (face up). This is considered a Special Summon. 
Normal Magic 
Card Number LOB-118/SDK-036/SDY-030/SDP-035/SDJ-035 
Ultra Rare (LOB) / Common (everything else) 


Upsides: 
Free monster 
No drawbacks 
Easily found (1 set and 4 starters decks have it) 
Special Summon 

Down Sides: 
Not a quick-play 
Restricted 
Ultra rare in LOB 
Can only bring monsters to the field face-up 

Combos: 
Graceful Charity, Painful Choice, Card Destruction, Cheerful Coffin, Mirage of Nightmare, etc...: Dump a big monster, then reborn it with Monster Reborn. 
Magician of Faith: Get Monster Reborn back and used it again. 
Torrential Tribute: Monster Reborn your Sangan or Witch, then open up the field for a big hit with Torrential Tribute. 

In Casual, this card should be in any deck you build unless you canít find it (That should not be the case). This card revolutionized the game from the beginning. It is among the Yu-Gi-Oh Elite and may be the best of the bunch. Definitely something you want to play. 

In Tourney, read the above. I donít know any kind of deck that you could build that could be a tourney contender and do without Monster Reborn. It has no drawbacks and is basically a free monster. Whatís not to love? 

In Sealed, this is in every starter deck, so you should have no trouble playing it, or finding it, in fact. If you donít play it and win, I feel the Apocalypse will soon be upon us, but thatís just me. Great card nonetheless. 

Overall, I feel itís a 4.95/5 (9.9/10 if you want to look at it that way) 

C. Rating: 4.9

DrZap84 Monster Reborn

Well, this is review week folks. Sorry that I haven't been doing the COTD's. I had an eventful thanksgiving, so that took the place of my COTD's. Anyways I'm back and I come back on basically a review week. Is monster reborn still a worthy card? Of course it is. It's still a staple. Nothing has changed since its debut in March of 2002. I mean what is there really to say about Monster Reborn. Its a free special summon. You can use things like Graceful Charity, and get rid of Jinzo, and than just Reborn it in the same turn. Reborn probably gets better with each set that passes through our hands, because there are more monsters to reborn with cool effects. So yea, there isn't much to say about Reborn. It still changes a game for the player that uses it, nothing more, nothing less.

Tourney Play: 4.3/5 This card changes the game, even if only for a turn. It gives you a free monster from your opponents or your graveyard.

Casual Play: 4.3/5 Every deck should really have this, Although there are always exceptions.

Limited Play: 5/5 wow, here its just amazing. I mean, reborn that BEWD or DM that you were lucky enough to draft. Hah, yea...nuff said
