Dark Paladin
Closing the week, we come to Dark World Dealings...which seems incredibly simple...each player draws one card, then each player discards one card.

Obviously, there is no real use for this outside of a Dark World deck.
You can draw, discard a Dark World monster, and Special Summon it. You probably aren't too worried about your opponent drawing that one card.

As you all ready know, you seldom want to play something where your opponent gets to draw, but perhaps they had no hand, so whatever they draw instantly is discarded. That makes this a 2 for 2 for you and a
-1 for your opponent, not too shabby.

Ratings:

4/5 Dark World
2/5 elsewhere, as it does let you draw

Art: 5/5 Neat

You stay classy, Planet Earth :)

Ryoga
Dark World Dealings :
Dark artwork, that is.

An interesting effect that is about the same as Dragged Down to the Grave. A -1 unless playing Dark World, and a card milling decks would have loved. In essence, Dark World likes, no one else does.

Traditional: 2.5/5
Advanced: 2.5/5
Dark World: 4/5

Share and enjoy,
Ryoga

Dark World Dealings

4/5

not as broken as graceful, but a consistent way to play the dark world deck as well as a nice card for exodia to mess with.
Turkeyspit Dark World Dealings

Graceful Charity this isn't, but it will have to do. I find it rather sad that now that Dark World gets 3 new monsters to their lineup, that they also lose their best combo card. Dark World Dealings isn't as good, but then you also get to run 3 of them.

The only problem with DWD is that you could be helping out your opponent. Imagine activating DWD and watching your opponent, who is running a 12-Gauge Monarch deck, turf their Treeborn to the graveyard. Or how about your opponent discarding that 5th monster they needed for Pot of Avarice. Worse yet, watching them discard a Destiny Hero Dasher or Malicious!

The upside though is that now you have a means of discarding any of your DW monsters to the gravyard. It's still a -1, but unlike Cheerful Coffin, you increase your options by adding 1 card to your hand, thereby allowing you to discard useless or dead cards to the graveyard.

Dark World decks play this card in triples, but I can also see this card working in other decks:

- Exodia
- Destiny Heroes
- Any combo heavy deck

----------------------------------------
Traditional:
3/5 - I doubt people will use it, but they still get to use Sinister Serpent, which makes DWD a 1-for-1.

Advanced:
4/5 - in a Dark World deck. I'd give it a 3/5 for combo decks that want to add to their 3x Upstart Goblins.

Card Art:
3/5 - "Congratulations to Reign-Beaux Shonen Jump Dark World Champion!"

Today we look at a pretty simple card….

DARK WORLD DEALINGS
[Spell Card]
Each player draws 1 card. Then each player discards 1 card.

The effect is very easy to understand. Another piece of ammunition for Dark World. You and your opponent draw a card, then discard a card of your choice. The opponent is usually going to break even on this, unless they discard Treeborn (or their own Dark World monster, which would be VERY VERY bad for you). The controller of this card, however, is going to get a –1 unless they have a Dark World monster to discard. This card does have a minor upside because you get to draw first, giving you one more chance to draw a Dark World monster in case you didn’t have one before activating Dealing. It’s like a miniature, reversed, Card Destruction, and it’s much better than Dragged Down to the Grave for Dark World’s purposes.

If you are running Dark World, go ahead, try some of these out if you like. If you aren’t running Dark World, stay far far away.

Note: These rating are for Dark World only, Dealing gets 1/5 in any other deck

Traditional: 3/5
Advanced: 4/5
Art: 4.5/5
 
BobDoily Dark World Dealings

More support for Dark World, and they can use it with the loss of Graceful Charity. Essentially a better version of Dragged Down to the Grave, you lose the bonus of controlling what you have the opponent loses. But you gain the fact that you control what you discard and don’t reveal your hand. Not having to set s/ts is nice. Overall a nice grind support for Dark World. I’d only not run it if I didn’t have room.

Traditional: 4/5 (higher cause Dark World is better in Traditional cough*mirage*cough
Advanced: 3/5

Dark World Dealings

 

I’m kind of disappointed that Dark World didn’t take off with the new cards it received from Strike of Neos. In testing, the deck checks out just fine. Fast, disruptive, and just as quick as the rest of the decks.

 

Anyways, back to Dark World Dealings…

 

This card is pretty good. It’s not nearly as speedy or devastating as Graceful Charity, but you can do some damage with this card. Gren and Khakki are good cards and they have tested well with Dark World Dealings.

 

Of course you can use Goldd and Sillva too. ^_^

 

It’s a compact way of cycling cards in your Dark World deck. The only problem I’ve run into so far as re-using Spells. That is so critical to the speediness of the deck. I don’t think Magical Stone Excavation’s activation cost is cheap enough not to destroy the tempo of the deck.

 

Last Word: Dark World has some serious potential, but it suffers from speed issues (in my opinion). Dark World decks do have that explosive potential, but are they able to sustain themselves like Diamond Dude Turbo can? I need to come up with a better build. Anybody have any ideas?
