Again, we are looking at another Counter Trap, this time being Mind Over Matter, which is sort of a different type of Solemn Judgement, for Psychic-type monsters that is.

Mind Over Matter is a -1, as it requires the card itself, and the tribute of a Psychic-type monster. However, it negates the activation of a Magic, Trap, or Normal or Special Summon of a Monster card, and destroys the card in question.

If you are playing with the right cards (Psychics, that is) then definately play one, and go ahead and side another if it is working well or you need the extra help.

Ratings:

Traditional: 2.25/5

Advanced: 3.25/5

Art: 4/5

Mind Over Matter

...okay, so basically this is Solemn Judgment but with the cost of a Psychic-type monster instead of half your LP.

2-for-1 cards are tough to swallow sometimes -- Divine Wrath doesn't see a lot of play for this reason. However, dedicated psychic decks can use this to stop a key play, and should there end up being a reliable engine that gets multiple Psychics on the field, this can be a good card.

I like the idea of negating just about anything without an LP cost, but sadly, the loss in card presence seems to make paying half your LP the better option currently.

3/5 for future potential
General Zorpa Mind Over Matter

This card is the second part of what makes a dedicated Psychic deck work. It is basically a 4-6th copy of Solemn Judgment with a slightly more palatable activation cost. Just for tributing a Psychic monster, you can negate anything, just like Solemn. The Psychic monster armada is completely capable of replacing the lost monster, which is kind of nice since unlike SOlemn, Mind is a -1 for you.

It is definitely a good card, but then so was Froggy Forcefield. I do think that Psychics will follow Destiny Heroes in the fact that they will never be a force on their own. Just splashed into different strategies to augment another deck's weaknesses and strengths. I think that a Psychic heavy deck could benefit from this though, as your Krebons will do you little good against Judgment Dragon.

Just like SOlemn, it is a clutch card, but useless in most decks that will only play 3 Psychic monsters.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-3/5

Mind Over Matter
[Counter Trap Card]
Tribute 1 Psychic-Type monster. Negate the activation of a Spell or Trap
Card, or the Normal or Special Summon of a monster, and destroy that card.

    Today's card up for review is Mind Over Matter.. Hello Potential! Read the effect and you know this card has the potential to be busted beyond belief. Problem of it being, there isn't a lot of Psychic type monsters around right now. If we can see more support, the deck type itself could be big, and this card could possibly be the centerpiece for it! Until then, it is quite mediocre. If you want to make a pure Psychic deck with the resources that are out, for sure use this card

Trad: 2/5
Adv: (Psychics) 3/5
Mr. Random Mind Over Matter
[Counter Trap Card]
Tribute 1 Psychic-Type monster. Negate the activation of a Spell or Trap
Card, or the Normal or Special Summon of a monster, and destroy that card.

Mind Over Matter is a themed Solemn Judgment, but without the life point cost. Instead you have to tribute a Psychic monster to stop whatever your opponent is doing. The only Psychic monster that is worth playing right now is Krebons. People would rather play Solemn Judgment in a Psychic deck anyways because they are not losing a card. In the end, the less cards you need to negate something, the better.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1.5/5
