Solemn Warning, a card that is very similar to Solemn Judgement, but I personally don't care for as much. Why? Solemn Judgement could have a larger cost (half your Lifepoints versus 2000) while this card is always 2000.

One immediately negative is the fact that you wouldn't necessarily be able to play this card whenever you wanted or needed to, as you can with Judgement. Secondly, while Solemn Judgement negates everything, Warning only negates Monster summons.

Well, Monster summons and any other card or effect of a Monster that Special Summon a Monster(s), and destroys the card in question. The card isn't bad, not at all, but I would stick with your Solemn Judgement and Dark Bribe...I even like My Body as a Shield Better than this...

Ratings:

3/5 both Formats...some people will and are playing it, but average seems pretty accurate for reasons listed above.

Art: 5/5 like Judgement, but I actually like this a bit better I think
:)

Solemn Warning …
 
This falls into the “It’s not ‘crap’, but still – WHY!?!?” category.
 
Without giving this card much more airtime than it deserves – plainly speaking – we have Solemn Judgment, which does everything this card does and much much more. In a few instances – S-Warning may be CHEAPER to pay for (2000 LP) than S-Judgment (few people enjoy paying half their LP very early in the game), but it’s effect is only limited to stopping special summons via spell, trap, or monster, while  S-Judgment will stop ANY summons and ANY spell or trap. Plus, even though it’s half your LP, u can always pay for it with Judgment, no matter how few LP u have left. That being said, if u want added supplements to your S-Judgment – u play Dark Bribes. Easy.
 
S-Warning isn’t “bad”, but it’s pretty situational, and we’ve already been using things that are far superior.
 
Traditional: 1.5/5
Advanced: 2/5

Today, God is getting back together with his girls for another round of effect negating and other things Pojo won't let me say on a CotD review. Right before I saw this card, I was thinking, "Oh, I wish there was a way for me to stop any summon I want, but not have to use Royal Oppression!" Right after I prayed to God, he made himself appear on another card. This card is Solemn Warning, and this card is awesome.

While Black Horn of Heaven can only hit Synchro Summons and summons of cards like Dark Armed Dragon or Cyber Dragon, this even stops Rekindling swarms, Call of the Haunted or other things my headache won't tell me right now. Being able to use the control power of Royal Oppression without its downsides is just awesome, and I wish this card had stayed a common, but TCG players can't have nice things.

4.5/5
Art: Ms. Right is pleading to God to choose her over Ms. Left.
Fun Fact: Roombas and dogs usually don't mix. On the other hand, Weasel Balls go great with anything.
Tomorrow: I chose the CotD's this week. You know the last card is going to be something good.

Solemn Warning
 
Solemn Warning is a very much talked about Counter Trap from Duelist Revolution. For a hefty cost of 2000 Life Points, you can negate any Special Summon, or effect of a card which would Special Summon.
 
You may be noticing, Solemn Warning is essentially a Counter Trap version of Royal Oppression. So, let's compare them.
 
Solemn Warning beats Royal Oppression in a number of ways. First, your opponent can't respond with Dust Tornado or Mystical Space Typhoon to just stop the effect. Second, being a Counter Trap, you can also activate Solemn Warning during the Damge Step, stopping a lot of monsters Oppression is useless against. Recruiters and Gorz are especially useful to stop. Third, your opponent cannot use your own Solemn Warning against you like Oppression.
 
Oppression does still have some significant advantages. Since it's Continuous, it will stick around to negate multiple cards. Also, 800 Life Points is much easier to work with than 2000.
 
Many decks like X-Sabers, Synchro Cat, or Disaster Dragon are maining Royal Oppression to be able to lock the opponent down after their own Special Summons. This can sometimes be counter-productive, though, and slow themselves down too. In decks like these, Solemn Warning may be a good choice to replace the Oppressions already being used. Decks like Blackwings or Anti-Meta are mostly better off sticking with what they've got.
 
Traditional: 3.5/5 Could make a good impact here.
Advanced: 4.2/5 Very powerful here, expect this card to make an impact at a tournament near you.
Art: Why do Moses's cards always cost so many Life Points?
