Book of Moon has also been sent from being
Restricted down the list to only being
Semi-Restricted...and I have to wonder why. We lost
Magician of Faith again this format, so does that
mean Flip effects are dead and it doesn't matter how
many times you play Book of Moon?
We have plenty of other Flip effect monsters that
can be abused, and other ways to get Magic cards
back from the Graveyard...like Magical Stone
Excavation or Dark Magician of Chaos. Anyway, aside
from using Book of Moon to reuse a Flip effect, you
could also use it offensively or defensively against
or for an attack.
Offensively you can use it to flip an opponent's
monster into defense mode so you can now destroy
their monster. On the same note, you can use it
defensively so when being attacked you either won't
take any damage, or you might have enough defense
that your opponent can't destroy your monster.
Honestly...use one, and side the other, that's my
Traditional: 4/5 More Flips here.
Advanced: 4.5/5 Very solid, for reasons staed above.

Book of Moon
Book is up to 2 per deck now. What does this
Magician of Faith, the best thing to flip down and
back up, is no longer with us. Morphing Jar,
however, is still around. Reflipping that could be
As for generic defenses in Quick-Play form, I think
more decks will prefer Enemy Controller, with the
ability to tribute a monster to steal another one to
attack for game, as well as being a one-turn block.
You've also got "once per turn" effects like Zombie
Master that can be used (assuming he was already on
the field), flip down, flip back up, and use it
again -- nice if you have some Card of Safe Returns
on the field.
In short, this helps flip-heavy decks, but I don't
see that many of those getting played right now.
Book of Moon
Yes! One of my favorite cards is back at almost full
strength. Book of Moon is a potent Defensive,
Offensive and combo oriented card. I guess they
figured they could take it off since Magician of
Faith was banned. I would have preferred Tsukuyomi
to be honest, but Book of Moon is almost as good.
Definitely a godsend with FLIP effect monsters, LIke
Mask of Darkness (DARK) and Gravekeeper's Spy
(DARK). In fact most of the best FLIP effect
monsters are DARK, making this an excellent choice
for slower DARK decks.
Just remember what you flipped down. My friend
activated Book of Moon on my Dark Armed Dragon just
the other night, and forgot to take it out after he
had swarmed the field and killed all my face up
monsters. I ended up decimating the field next turn.
This is where the new note-taking rules come in, so
if you learn anything you can write it down. That
includes facedown cards, so use it!
Book of Moon
Easily one of my favorite cards in the game.
Book of Moon is an old card that still to this day,
many consider a staple in a basic deck. Back in the
day when you could use three, it ran in doubles or
triples all the time. Now it's back in double force,
which is one the best things from the Ban List.
- The effect of flipping a monster facedown is just
great. Allowing you stop an attack, flip your own
DEF heavy monster facedown to block, or allowing
yourself to reuse a flip effect. Easily one of the
most versatile cards you can find. This and
Marshmallon are just mean.
A good combo back in the day was this and Nobleman
of Crossout, which allowed you to flip anything down
(BLS/CED) and remove it without a problem. Tsukuyomi
was good for the same reason, they she was reusable,
which is why she's still banned.
Not a whole lot to say about an awesome card.
Traditional: 4/5 Prevents BLS from raping for a

Book of Moon
To me, this card is a pretty decent sidedeck
card, is newly semi-limited, and will also be
another featured card in the "Cards/Decks on the
Rise/Fall" list on my next article. There isn't
much too explain about Book of Moon so I'll try
to make it short and sweet. It's a quick-play
spell that can flip a face-up monster back
face-down so you can negate a powerful monster's
ATK or effect (Depending on what the effect is)
and you can destroy it with Nobleman of Crossout,
Shield Crush, or simply a decent monster with
higher ATK than that monster's DEF. It can also
flip Flip Effect monster back face-down, but
that usually isn't necessary. That's all for
today and if you duelists need anything such as
help, please feel free to contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for reading!

Wednesday March 5th: Book of Moon
Does anyone remember the Goat Format? Book of Moon
is and always will be regarded as a high utility
card designed to do more than one thing in any given
situation. It can block attacks, it can evade
targeting tricks, it can reuse your or your
opponent's flip effects or you can reset a monster's
ignition effect and use it again (Hallo Thar BLS).
This format should hopefully see some of those
tricks rise thanks to its new 2 per deck
Personally, Book answered alot of things that made
past formats broken. They shouldn't have restricted
this card in the first place. Thanks to that, Book's
popularity dwindled far beyond its years. Players
would instead use tricks like Phoenix Wing Wind
Blast and Dimensional Prison to remove their threats
and they run few flips altogether
That was then, this is Now. This format, try out
your 2 Books and see how much it can help you stop
an unwanted Machine Duplication
Traditional: 3/5 (With Faith at 1, its uses has
Dwindled. I'd still enjoy reusing BLS effect)
Advanced: 3/5 (A Magic Miracle in the pile of
changes to March 1st. Abuse It)
Until Next Time
Ok, continuing on banlistweek, is a card that
should've never been on the list in the first
Book of Moon
should NOT be splashed. Maybe some people use it
as monster destruction, but not a lot. I do
believe this card was semi-limited to counter
Jinzo. It's because of this Nobleman of Crossout
was banned. it's similar to Cyber Dragon and Pot
of Avarice: it takes skill to play.
4/5 trad. it
can counter chaos.
