Book of Moon...a card we haven't looked at in about
18 months. Book of Moon lost a lot of power with the
Banning of Magician of Faith. One of its trademark
moves was to flip Magician of Faith, retrieve a
Magic card, and then Book of Moon to reuse her
later. Is it still good?
Book of Moon vs. Shrink...discuss I believe such an
argument would take an article or two to completely
discuss, but I will do the best I can here.
Book of Moon still has a lot of combo potential,
outside of Magician of Faith. Book of Moon laughs in
the face of certain cards like Ring of Destruction
and Mirror Force. Switch your only face up monster
face down to negate either can really annoy the
Flipping an opponent's monster to Nobleman it next
turn can be equally annoying, or switch it face down
for defensive purposes to destroy it next turn. Book
of Moon is so versatile, and it can be used for
quite a lot.
But then, look at
Shrink. If you use that on your opponent's monster,
and it isn't twice as strong as yours, you destroy
their monster, assuming they don't add a Magic or
Trap card to it.
Art: 4/5 I really like the Egyptian pictures *sits
to read that BIG
Book of Moon :
I remain impressed they haven't printed any more
books. Whenever a card is good they seem to love
printing horrible alternate versions.
I don't know how things go elsewhere, but I still
like Book of Moon as it remains one of the most
versatile cards in existence. It stops attacks,
makes big monsters easier to attack to death, reuses
flip effects, negates Snatch Steal, and oh so much
more. On its own, it isn't much use but the sheer
number of cards it assists makes it worth including
in most decks in my opinion.
Share and enjoy,
Book of Moon
The ability to reuse flip effects, stop an attack,
shut down ring of destruction/snatch steal/brain
control/smashing ground/etc. grants a player
versatility. Lets no forget attacking with spirit
reaper into our opponents set Mirror Force and
saving the reaper for another time:)
Versatility is what this card grants us and as such
it is one of the best spells available in this and
almost any format!

Today we look at a card that has been run in 3’s,
but then got restricted due to how good it was….
Book of Moon
Quick Play Spell
Flip 1 face-up monster on the field into face-down
Well, a very simple effect, and it’s a quick play.
It can do a variety of things for just about any
deck. It can put that Sangan the opponent summoned,
thinking they had a guaranteed hit, face down.
Setting it up for the Nobleman of Crossout they
thought they were avoiding. It can be chained to a
Mobius, making it easy to kill. Or, as always, it
can be used to stop an attack. This and many other
uses make this a great offensive card.
It can be a great defensive card as well though. If
the opponent uses Smashing Ground, Sakuretsu Armor,
Lightning Vortex, Mirror Force, Bottomless Trap
Hole, or Ring of Destruction, you can chain Book of
Moon. Putting a monster of value face down, avoiding
your opponent’s card effect that only works on face
up monsters. You might lose a different monster, but
hopefully it’ll be worth it. And if that monster was
a flip effect monster, you just got to re-use the
effect. I remember doing this to Magician of Faith
all the time.
It doesn’t give you any advantage on its own, but it
opens up a world of possibilities, some of which I
mentioned above. I wouldn’t say this has a spot in
every deck out there, but it certainly belongs in a
lot of them.
Ah, Book of Moon, so many memories. And all of them
good. Book of Moon is one of the most versatile
cards in the game, but unfortunately that has cost
it. Its heavy use during the goat control era led to
it being restricted, and even with the banning of
the key components behind that archetype this
support card remains unnecessarily restricted.
I won’t bother going into all of Book of Moon’s
uses, we’d be here to long. But as the Meta has
progressed its play time has seriously decreased.
More and more people are shifting over to Enemy
Controller for various reasons, leaving Book of Moon
unfortunately in the shadows. Regardless it’s still
viable, and stills a great support card.
