Crush Card Virus is Banned, and with good reason. It's power is reckless, unwieldy, and started making its destructive way into far too many Decks. I'm not going to sit here and do an in-depth review of a Banned card, regardless of how good it is...

or was. Anyway, although the effect only last for three turns, and a very specifc type of monster needs to be tributed (a Dark monster with 1000 attack or less) it almost seems like Crush Card would be more difficult to play. Three turns can seem like an eternity after being punished by Crush Card. It's Banned for a reason friends.

Ratings:

Traditional: 4.25/5
Advanced: 5/5 Banned? I think we went over that.
Art: 5/5
General Zorpa Crush Card Virus

This is THE biggest no brainer card of all time. You tribute a DARK monster with less than 1100 ATK, and you blast all of your opponent's monsters that have more than 1500 ATK from their hand, and field and their next 3 draws. It is a trap card, so Royal Decree is it's worst enemy and Jinzo makes it sad.

Basically, since the card is banned in the advanced format as of yesterday, I have no rating for it except in Traditional. If it were legal in Advanced, then it would be 5's all around, but some idiot at Konami decided to ban it just when it was massed released and easy to get.

I curse whoever made that decision to have 1,000,000 Rare Crush Card Virus' shoved down their throat by the TCG players.

Traditional-5/5
Advanced-1/5

Today’s card up for review is Crush Card Virus. Crush is one of the most powerful cards ever created, and I am happy that it finally got the axe. All competitive decks use loads of monsters that have 1500 or more attack, so if you play this card, it will devastate your opponent. It is so easy to have a monster with 1000 or less attack to use for the cost as well. Cards like Summoner Monk/Sangan/Destiny Hero Malicious&Monger/Neo Spacian Dark Panther etc, makes it way to easy to play. Thank god it is gone

Trad: 5/5
Adv: 5/5(Before it got the axe obviously)

As much as I dread having to review this card, I'll still review it. The card that a lot of players were unhappy about its place on the new limited list, Crush Card Virus. Since its release, its made quite an impact on the game and duels it was used in. Generally most decks tend to use more monsters with 1500 attack or higher. Monarch decks, Gladiator Beast decks, DAD decks, list could probably go on. They all have a ton of monsters that have 1500 attack or higher monsters. If hit by Crush Card it can really set you back, since most decks today depend on synchro monsters, Dark Armed Dragon, Jugment Dragon, monarchs and so forth. When a deck loses these "boss" monsters, it generally changes the game more drastically than more people think. I was at locals on Sunday, and my friend got hit by Crush Card two rounds in a row, he used Pot of Avarice both times and lost both cards he drew due to Crush Card. While the odds of that happening aren't very high, its just a good example of how good the card is. With a lot of Crushable targets out there too, its not hard to use Crush Card. Sangan, D.D. Crow, Destiny Hero - Malicious, Summoner Monk, these are just a few of many that people use or can use, that are targets for Crush Card. All of which are very good cards too. With its ability to change the outcome of a duel alone, its probably no surprise it got banned finally.

Traditional: 5/5
Advanced: 5/5

Crush Card Virus …

Ok, this card was good … although it’s disappearance isn’t killing me TOO much, I guess cuz people weren’t using it on me all THAT often, and I myself never even owned one, so … no big loss, right?

I imagine the best use of this card would be to tribute a Sangan or a Necro Gardna or something, getting the best use out of them hitting the Graveyard and in the process smiting all on your opponent’s big monsters with the Virus for 3 turns. Sounds easy enough? Yeah, I think so too. That will often save ur butt if too much isn’t going in ur favor, and give u some time to dig yourself out of ur hole. And if u weren’t in a hole in the 1st place, then ur probably gonna be able to finish the game at this point with ur opponent lacking anything that can protect them … except a Spirit Reaper or something …
But let’s try not to worry about things like that :)

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 4.5/5
