Return of the Doomed
Wow, a crappy -1!
This is the crappy version of The Warrior Returning
Alive. You discard a monster to get back a monster
that was killed in battle. And since you can only
use it on YOUR turn, it means it had to be one of
YOUR monsters that was destroyed, which can only be
caused by you ramming something into something
stronger, or with an equal ATK score.
Even if it was quick-play, and even without the
discard, it just wouldn't be good then either. Why?
We all know monsters don't even get destroyed in
battle anymore! They get destroyed by Sakuretsu
Armor, Mirror Force, Torrential Tribute, Smashing
Ground, Exiled Force, and Zaborg the Thunder
Monarch's effect...if not removed outright by
Nobleman of Crossout, Chaos Sorcerer, D. D. Warrior
Lady, or Bottomless Trap Hole.
Sorry, but this card isn't worth any more than the
penny (or less) they used in cardboard to print it.
Closing out the week of oddities, we look at Return
of the Doomed.
This card is terrible, I'm sorry. You have an
automatic -1, the fact that you use this Magic card
AND a discard. If that weren't enough...
The discard MUST be a Monster card, and the monster
only returns to your hand, not even the field.
Furthermore, if this wasn't situational enough, the
monster has to be destroyed this turn. Confusing,
Well, not really, but this card does win an award.
Return of the Doomed wins the award for most
situational card ever. As stated, if that weren't
enough, it requires a SPECIFIC discard and a
specific set of circumstances to be accomplished.
Find as many of these as you can and burn them.
Return them to mother Earth.
1/5 and I try to give out a decent score for
everything, but this is just not playable and not
Art: 4/5 It is a cool picture though
You stay classy, Planet Earth :)
Returned of the Doomed review
Now when I was just glimpsing over this week’s cotds
I thought it said Tribute to the Doomed. So I was
hoping to have some nostalgia. Never mind.
Return of the Doomed:
Ehm, not the most used card in the universe.
Yes folks, I'm not dead, I just had exams and have
spent the past fortnight in my room revising things
you don't want to know about. I now return to my
Sadly, this card isn't a particularly interesting
return. A -1 that lets you get a monster back.
However, as you can only activate this during your
turn and it only affects monsters destroyed as a
result of battle, the only use it has is if you
intend to suicide into an opponent's monster (or are
psychic and know your opponent will active Rush
If it was Quick-Play, it might have a whim of a use.
As it stands, nothing.

Return of the Doomed - Normal Spell card
Effect - Discard 1 Monster Card from your hand to

Well, this card may seem good at first, but when
looked at closer, its not that great of a card, lets
see if my recent attempt at a pro and con list can
show you what I meanâ€¦
Pros: ~ You can set up a good play, knowing the fact
that youâ€™ll get your monster back, and they wonâ€™t
~ With todays meta, people are playing treeborn
frogs and night assailants, which can be used as
good discard fodder
~ You can discard other things, such as a tribute
like jinzo, airknight, or a light/dark for your
~ You get a monster back to your hand (duh)
Cons: ~ Its basically a -1
~ Usually if your monster was destroyed in battle,
it probably wont be of much help that next turn
~ Its not worth getting rid of another card from
your hand to get something thatâ€™s dead already
~ Did I mention its not worth paying the cost of
In short, I donâ€™t like cards like this that make
you discard for something. Usually the effect doesnâ€™t
immediately help you. Like I stated in my cons,
whatever you may get back, probably wont help you
much next turn, because it will probably be
destroyed again, and by again, I mean, lol, youâ€™re
a n00b for playing that and discarding a card from
your hand just so I can destroy it again, kind of
help. Till next week duelistâ€¦
Awesome art, terrible effect. By discarding a
monster from your hand you can get one back from the
grave this turn if destroyed in battle. This means
that you activate this, then intentionally get a
monster destroyed, then return the monster from the
grave to your hand. There are two cards that work
better than this ;
Monster reincarnation, and last will, both of which
aren’t REALLY considered to be anything special.
(Although I’m partial to Last will now everything’s
different about it)
At a push, actually an enormous haul, this thing may
finds its way into some cooky Tomato control,
Creature swap, radical control kid of deck, but
otherwise its fairly useless.
