Graceful Revival closes our week, that allows the user to Special Summon a Level 2 or lower monster from your Graveyard in attack position. There are good Level 2 monsters to select in this category, but combos too.

You could Book of Moon the monster (especially being an effect monster) and re-use the Flip effect, or you could use said monster for a Synchro Summon. This card really does have some possibilities.

It may not be worth a Deckspot, but it isn't useless either.

Graceful Revival

"I'll take 'Reasons Disk Commander is Banned' for $2,000, Alex."

...so we have another Call of the Haunted that you can run 3 of, but with a restriction designed to make it not game-breaking. Limit Reverse keeps the revivals under 1,000 ATK; Graceful Revival keeps them to Levels 1 and 2.
There are very, VERY few cards that are over 1,000 ATK that are Level 2 or below -- meaning things this can revive but Limit Reverse can't. Based on that, I tend to prever Limit Reverse -- the one reason I could think of to use this is a deck that requires massive swarm with weenie monsters or to set up for a combo with them.

...although admittedly, I wish this card didn't exist solely so we could get Disk Commander back in a future format, so all the pros would complain about how unfair it is -- and this is coming from a person who lost out on a Nats invite solely because of Disk Commander.

Maybe there will be some card this is needed for to make an epic deck; I'm just not seeing it right now.

1.5/5

Well this is one of the simpler cards in the game. You get a Call of the Haunted for a level 2 or lower monster. Hmm, didn't we already have a card like that? Let me think, oh yeah! Limit Reverse does the same sort of thing, except for a monster with less than 1000 ATK.
 
There are advantages to both, as the Reverse can terminate itself and can fetch low ATK but hugh level cards like Malicious and Exile Force. It is also a common and thus easier to obtain for people who like the card but don't want to buy packs to get them.
 
Graceful Revival on the other hand will get back ANY level 2 or lower monster, meaning that Krebons, Jutte Fighter and many other cards are able to be summoned that Limit Reverse cannot. It is however more limite in it's toolbox, as D.D. Crow, Krebons and Jutte Fighter are likely to be the only monsters it will be getting.
 
Whichever one you use is perfectly up to you, but in general I think that Revival is better, as it can be used with all of the Tuner monsters, allowing for better Synchro summons than Limit Reverse.

    Todayʼs card up for review is Graceful Revival. I actually like this card sorta. I have been messing around with decks to try and get as many Synchro Summons as possible. I actually messed with this card to grab Krebons, and got pretty decent results! Im sure you can think of plenty of fun stuff to grab with this. Some form of a combo deck or stall.
