Seal of the Ancients is a normal Spell Card.
This is fine, though technically I suppose it
would be better as a Quick-Play, so it could be
activated on your opponent’s turn. Actually,
perhaps it should have been a permanent Spell,
and given the option of re-using the effect…
This card lets you peek at all of your
opponent’s set cards. That’s actually pretty
useful. However, you must pay 1000 Life Points
to activate it. Eeeep!
It’s just worth a slot in your deck, maybe, but
definitely not worth 1000 LP.
If you need to waste LP and need to see what
your opponent has, then I guess this is good.
1.5/5-Maybe in a Last Turn deck?
1.25/5-Same, but even more lame.
2/5-The heads up might be useful if you are
about to deliver the final blow and all that is
in your way are a few set cards. That cost
means that it will only be used for checking the
safety of delivering the final blow.
A card that would have been iffy if it was free
is bad when it costs 1000 LP. Maybe if it was a
permanent Spell card so that it could be
re-used, and had less of a cost (probably free),
it might be tolerable.
