Exchange of the Spirit
Ahhh, another banned card.
This one never got to do its thing completely in the
In Japan, here's how it would go...
Activate some Spell card that lets you activate

essentially playing them from the hand)
Play Sixth Sense.
Play up to 3x Jar of Greed.
Play up to 3x Corpse of Yata-Garasu (essentially the
Play Painful Choice.
Play Pot of Greed.
We up to 15 cards in the Graveyard yet? Exchange of
the Spirits. You have no deck. gg.
But without Sixth Sense, the Corpse of Yata-Garasu,
and the spell card to make it all happen on turn

Exchange of Spirit:
Another ban unneccesary outside of Japan.
Like Makyura, this card never really got a chance to
stretch its legs outside of Japan. Now yes,
Reasoning can mill your deck ridiculously easily,
but the odds of drawing one of three cards in a deck
of fourty are just too small to be important. This
card was banned just to ensure OTKs never live again
(until the designers slip up again).
Casual: 1/5 (the games are too quick to be fun) Old
