This card can only be activated during your
opponent's turn when your Life Points are 1000 or
less. Select 1 monster on your side of the field and
send all other cards on the field and in their
respective owners' hand to their respective
Graveyards. Your opponent must then Special Summon 1
monster from his/her Deck in face-up Attack Position
and attack your selected monster. Any Battle Damage
from this battle is treated as 0. The player whose
monster remains alone on the field at the End Phase
of this turn wins the Duel. Any other case results
in a DRAW.

This card got so many bad players into Top 8 and
kept so many good players out of Top 8 it wasn't
One turn kill decks are never fun to face. Hence why
Konami eliminated so many with the last list. Last
Turn was a very difficult deck to play against in
Duel 1 for a lot of people, but with the increase in
sided Royal Decrees, the popularity of Dusts, and
(at the time) Sinister to screw with the people who
immediately activated it on the draw phase, its
decline was inevitable.
I'd cover how the combo works, but I think every
other CotD reviewer did that today, so I'll just
deter you to those.
Traditional: 1.25/5 (Scientist = better one turn
Pojo Fact: Last Turn has only been reviewed once,
and it was nearly THREE years ago.
Now, our theme for the week progresses, we're going
to be looking at more cards that have had their
status on the Banned/Restricted list changed.
Today we look at Last Turn, my favorite alternate
win condition ever.
Let's recap. Before this Ban List, we had two copies
of Last Turn to use. Then, all of a sudden, it's
Banned. Is Last Turn powerful? Yes.
Does it have a lot of potential? Yes. Can it screw
over your opponent? Yes. Was it worth being Banned?
That last statement may be a bit of a contradiction
to the rest, but allow me to explain. Last Turn CAN
be deadly. However, nearly any card with any
potential CAN be deadly. Last Turn has a simple
You can only activate when your lifepoints are 1000
points or less and during your opponents turn.
You then choose a selected monster you have on the
field and your opponent selects a monster from
his/her deck and special summons it in face up
Attack posistion. After a 1 on 1 battle that results
in no damage, the person whose monster survives wins
the duel. Any other case results in a Draw.
I love playing a Last Turn deck, that I can only use
in Casual play now. Last Turn must have become
extremely popular and powerful in Japan to warrant a
Ban, since it wasn't a threat here that warrented
that. It's really too bad that it was Banned here
before it actually had a chance to achieve status
that it might warrant said Ban.
Traditional: 3.85/5 At least here you can still use
it, even though it probably won't be able to be very
successful with Chaos looming around.
Art: 5/5 Hino Kagu Tsuchi vs. Yamata Dragon...cool
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
Last Turn, Cyber Jar, Exchange of the Spirits review
It’s dead!!! It’s dead!!! The otk is
(By the way my Luster Dragon review was sent in
late, you don’t want to miss it)
And now we start the Week of the Dead. Cards that
Yes, Last Turn, one of the longest lasting OTKs, is
finally dead. This combo was never exactly broken
and rarely won tournaments, but it sure as heck
anoyed a lot of people along the way. Tthe deck
never made an enormous impact on tournaments, except
the prescense of a few Elephant Statues in side
However, it never deserved banning. This death is
solely atributed to Konami's hate of OTKs, somehow
seeing them as cheating and not proper game play.
Virutally every one in existence has been shot dead
and mortally wounded by banning and restriction. I
suppose it was only a matter of time.
(Rating the deck, not the card, as it is useless
outside of its own deck.)
Old Advanced: 3/5
Alternative kill strategies took a major hit last
format, especially since the otherwise situational
ones like this card being outright banned.
Sure it has its combos, such as the infamous Jowgen
the Spiritualist and wall of revealing light, but I
say ban those cards, and leave the precious cool
In traditional, this would never be played, in
advanced, as of now the same holds true.
Traditional : 2/5
Advanced : Banned/5
Art ; 4/5
This card has been the bane of my dueling career. I
hate it, I hate it, I hate it. If you ever went to a
regional tourny 2 days before nationals almost all
of the people played this deck. It was cheap and
fast and down rightfully wrong. A cool deck, and
worthy of all its praise, but play against 5 of
these and you will hate it too. It needed to be
banned, ftk decks are ruthless and wrong. They take
skill to build and work within the first few weeks
of developing them but after a good build is
established they almost all look the same.
5/5 in a Last Turn Deck
But it is banned, so HA
