Gold Sarcophagus ...

A very good spell card. As u can read from the text - it lets u pluck ANY card u want from your deck, the only catch is that u have to wait 2 turns in order to play it. It's really quite simple. And its one of those cards that just about useful at ANY time in the duel. Preferably NOT a top deck, but not the WORST top deck if ur opponent is top decking as well. There really isnt much to say about it. If u are encountering a situation while dueling and ur sure that here's a card in your deck to rectify said situation? - Gold Sarcophagus lets u fetch the problem solver.

U couldn't hate this card if u tried.

Traditional: 5/5
Advanced: 4.5/5

- FREEZA

ps - Traditional actually has more "problem solvers" to choose from than advanced, making this card a bit better in this format ... not that anyone actually even PLAYS Traditional ... but i'm just sayin ... :)

Our Card of the Day is the famous Gold Sarcophagus. Now, I know this card probably better than the other cards in this or next week, since I've built a whole deck around this card pretty much. Soul Absorbtion is a card that increases its controllers life points by 500 per card that is removed from play, both your opponents cards and your own. A famous move is removing Necroface from play with Gold Sarcophagus while Soul Absorbtion is on the field, then both players remove the top 5 cards of their decks from play. 500 x 10 cards is a total of 5,000 life points. This with Draining Shield adds a new draw card to a deck based on removing Necroface from play and recovering life points, Ancient Leaf is a card that can be activated when you have 9000 or more life points, and by paying 2000 of those life points you can draw 2 cards. A deck based around this would actually be quite a force to beat. Gold Sarcophagus not only makes that deck work incredibly well, but also has the ability to add any card in your deck to your hand. Having the power to add Dark Armed Dragon, Judgment Dragon, Honest, Heavy Storm and over viable cards to your hand from your deck is something we all would love. The only draw back is this card requires you to wait till your second standby phase to add the selected card to your hand. While this is a pain, what with duels not lasting much longer than 5-6 turns now, the off chance you can stick it out for those 2 standby phases, it generally is worth it.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: 4.5/5

Gold Sarcophagus-

 

I elaborate on this more on my blog. Basically, I think two Gold Sarcophagus are a staple in almost every deck in this new format until proven otherwise.

 

Trad- 5/5

Adv- 5/5

Gold Sarcophagus, a card that was great and fairly abused when you could use one...well, now you can use two. There isn't much to say about Gold Sarcophagus. Now, IF you have two, there isn't really any reason to why you shouldn't be playing them. Hell, it's even one of the few better in Traditional cards, as there are more and better things you can get there.

Ratings:

4.5/5 both formats

Art: 5/5
