Swords of Revealing Light, in a way like Scapegoat, would be incredibly annoying at more than a Restricted status.  Imagine nine straight turns of not being able to attack?  Even a Turbo Burn would have some trouble with that I think.  Swords is useful in a pinch, but something that hardly ever is seen outside Stall, aside even the youngest and newest of players, despite being a trademark of Yugi's.  Swords isn't even bad, but it doesn't give you any immediate advantage, and it might not at all, depending on what you do, or don't do with it.
 
Ratings:
 
Traditional:  1.5/5 
Advanced:     2.5/5 
Art:  4/5  Holo is neat :)

Swords of Revealing Light... this could be a short review. It's technically a continuous card. That is not good at all. As you probably already know, continuous cards suck. Your opponent will have a thousand ways to stop this card before it can do anything to them. It's a very sturdy and reliable card, but not in a format where it will be destroyed on its first turn five times out of four.

I'm giving a lot of 2/5s this week. It's Limited week, not 2/5 week!
Art: Do they fall on the ground and create obstacles for me or something?
Fun Fact: It's had 12 reprints. Mystical Space Typhoon has had 21 reprints. Yeah.
Tomorrow: I will sit on an urday. I will find one to sit on.

Hey Pojo, Pheano here with another Card Of The Day For you.
 
Today we will be taking a look at another old school card that is Limited, Swords Of Revealing Light. Swords Of Revealing Light is a Normal Magic Card that will prevent your opponent from Attacking for three turns. Unlike most Normal Magic cards though Swords Of Revealing Light will sit on the field for those three turns like a Continuous Magic card. So in short it is like a three turn Threatening Roar but in turn it can’t be chained like Threatening Roar can and it can be destroyed by cards like Mystical Space Typhoon and you will loose the effect of it when that happens.
 
Swords Of Revealing Light is good for letting you stall for three turns so you can build up your board and your opponent can’t do as much to stop you. In the past this didn’t see play due to Heavy Storm since it wasn’t safe to play this, you would loose your Swords Of Revealing Light and the other card you would most likely have set. With that Banned and people mass setting their back row this card is once more safe to play. Now when you play this one of two things will happen; 1) your opponent will wait the three turns 2) your opponent will waist resources on this and by doing so it will draw attention away from your other sets that you really don’t want them to destroy. Recently this card has been able to see the top tables in a few decks namely Pojo’s own alexis`on`fire was able to top a YCS with this in his Gladiator Beast deck.
 
In the Traditional format this card’s use is very limited do to the Battle Phase not being very important and the large amount of mass removal. When you play this in the Traditional Format your basically just giving your opponent a free +1.
 
Bottom Line:
It is playable now that Heavy Storm is Banned.
Advanced: 3/5
Traditional: 1/5
 
Hit me up on pojo or youtube (pheanoblack) if you have any comments or questions, I’m always open to constructive criticism.


Archangel
The Legion

Hey Pojo, this is Archangel with The Legion Duelists bringing you the card of the day. Today’s card is Swords of Revealing Light. It flips all of your opponent’s monsters face up, and while it’s on the field, your opponent’s monsters cannot attack. At the end of their third turn, it goes away.

First of all, it flips monsters face up, which in most cases is a bad thing nowadays. You will likely flip a Ryko, Snowman eater, or any other card that activates upon flipping. In this format, if it’s facedown, there is a reason for it. You could use that to your advantage and force the timing of face downs, say if you had no monsters and flipped their Snowman eater, but that’s about it. This card is not very handy in today’s super-fast format. Swords would not stay on the field very long anyway, with MST being at 2, and destruction monsters like Ryko and Hyunlei. However, if it is able to stay on the field, it is a great card to help you build up your defenses.

Traditional/Advanced: 2/5

Artwork: 3/5
