Reckless Greed

Reckless Greed is an interesting alternative to the now-banned Pot of Greed and Graceful Charity. It doesn’t really give you any card advantage, but if you’re going in for the kill, it can get you there more quickly.

Being a Trap, you wait a turn to activate it. Then you draw two cards – it’s advisable to do this on your own turn instead of your opponent’s, because then, you’ll basically get three new cards that turn.

The drawbacks? You don’t draw for two Draw Phases. That’s not good. Unless you get a major lead (or a win) with the two cards you drew, you’re probably going to regret using Reckless Greed, because your options will be running out pretty quickly.

If it weren’t restricted, it’d be a lot better, as then you’d be able to activate all three in one turn (drawing six cards) and you’d still only skip two Draw Phases. Alas, that’s not how it works.

Control: 2/5
Exodia Deck: 3/5
OVERALL RATING: 2.5/5
 

ExMinion OfDarkness
Reckless Greed

Looks like we had one particular CotD fan with a little too much initiative this week...so we're reviewing Reckless Greed.

One would think people might start playing this because Pot and Graceful are banned now. But unlike Pot, which is a +1 automatically, and Graceful, which is a +1 if you discarded a Serpent or Night Assailant, this is a -1.

You're giving up 1 card and 2 draw phases to get 3 turns. If you have to play out the 2 cards you drew, you're jacked for 2 turns -- which is enough for your opponent to finish you off. If the cards get hand-disrupted (through Don/Reaper), same thing. If they're worthless cards to you at the moment, you're just slightly more screwed than if you hadn't used Reckless as at least you'd have drawn a different card instead of Reckless.

Sadly, it's restricted so you can't play 3 to get 6 cards and only skip two draw phases (which is only a +1 in and of itself!) Sorry superfan, but this just isn't that good of a card.

1/5 all
 

Coin Flip
Reckless Greed. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Loss of card advantage is unimportant IF you can still win the game. Winning the game is essentially infinite card advantage. With that in mind, you shouldn't automatically assume this card is garbage.

It's +1 that then slaughters your next two +1's. In any passive or control deck, playing this is beyond stupid. It's double stupid. In an uber-aggressive deck, two cards is often more than you needed to win. If your deck has OTK's built in or often BARELY falls short of that one card necessary to win, then this is a valid choice for your deck. Just know when to use it.

I might add that if you can make them waste a Dust Tornado or MST on this, you barely break even. I still count some advantage loss, since cards in your hand are much more vulnerable than cards in your draw.

I can't really rate this accurately since there's no one particular decktype this build roxxor in (too slow for OTKs), but I'll give it a rating anyway.

3/5 General
 

Dark Paladin
Today we review Reckless Greed, a card that could very well be a welcome draw engine to our decks since we recently lost Pot of Greed and Graceful Charity.

Reckless Greed is a very underrated trap, despite the fact that it is restricted. Like Pot, Reckless Greed allows you to draw two cards, however it is a normal trap, instead of a normal spell. However, Reckless Greed comes with a bit of a setback. As a nasty little side effect, you skip your next two draw phases.

Is this a big deal? It depends. There are loopholes of course. Just because you skip your draw phase, that doesn't mean that you can't draw via Airknight, Jar of Greed, or another card that allows you to do so.

This is a viable option, at least until Elemental Energy is out when we get Jar of Avarice which is a fairly good Pot replacement, just with a bit of a "price." Requirement I guess is a better term. Until then, go ahead and try Reckless Greed.

Ratings:

Traditional: 2.0/5 Why use a negative draw card?
Advanced: 3.8/5 A viable option, at least until EEN.

Art: 4.5/5 He does look QUITE greedy.

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
