Light of Redemption, another incredibly simple Magic card, that is considerably better than yesterday's card.  By paying 800 Lifepoints, you can add one of your removed Light monsters back to your Hand.

 

Incredible and solid support for Light monsters.  A small Lifepoint cost, and the only thing better would be if it returned or could be Special Summoned to the Field.  I'm not trying to be short, but these are simple cards :)

4/5 for Light users

Light of Redemption

If I'm paying 800 Life Points to get at a monster somewhere, I want it getting Special Summoned, not bounced to my hand.  Most of the time, when a monster gets removed from the game by your own effects, you intend on it doing something else than getting bounced to the hand -- D. D. Scout Plane, Different Dimension Reincarnation, the now-limited Return from the Different Dimension...

The Light/Fairy theme doesn't really need this right now.  That might change in the future, but there's no reason to pay 800 LP for a 1:1 like this.

1.5/5

A TCG exclusive card! Yeah! Oh wait it sucks. Why pay 800 to get a LIGHT monster back to your hand when you can just play DARK decks and do it for free, but to the field? That new Counter Fairy build might have a use for this, as they use Freed the Brave Wanderer, but since most of the LIGHT monsters you're removing are fairies or you don't want back (Ryko) Miraculous Descent is much better.
 
It may see play, but I wasn't all goo-goo ga-ga over this at the sneak, and I was drooling over every other Lightsworn card.

David "BobDole" Hoffman  Light of Redemption

 LoR is one of those questionable cards. You want to play it, but it really doesn't fit your theme, so you kind of have to add other cards to make it playable, and then you just kinda screw yourself over because now your deck is too focused on one mildly powerful card.

 What I'm saying is if this does not fit perfectly into your deck theme, don't bother. If - for example - you play a Chaos deck that features several light monsters that are more powerful in hand (Honest) than removed from play, that would be something to consider LoR in.

 It's by far most powerful when combined with Honest and something like a Chaos or even a Scourge deck. For 800 LP, gaining back a worthwhile monster is certainly a great opportunity to swing the game in your favor. Just don't main him unless you're certain that card is worth it. If you just need monsters in graveyard, there are better cards that do it.

 Traditional: 3.5/5 Just because of Chaos
 Advanced: 1.5/5 Mainly because Scourge decks aren't exactly draw dropping.

Light of Redemption

I honestly can’t see a purpose for this card. Its cost is 800 life points, and it’s a situational 1 for 1.

Traditional: 1/5

Advanced: 1/5

I know it looks like lightsworn week, but it really isnt.

This is a good card, but not a great card. Unless I'm missing some blaring obvious card other then freed that can utilize this, it really isn't that great, even in a lightsworn deck.
