Chaos Sorcerer closes our week, who over the course of time finally made his way to being Unrestricted again.  So it's the malformed cousin of Black Luster Soldier--Envoy of the Beginning.  2300 attack 2000 defense, same Special Summoning requirement, and can attack once, or remove a monster from play.  Chaos Sorcerer wasn't salvation for those who needed "Chaos" when he could be played at one...or at two, and he still isn't.  Even if you bring this out after whatever your opponent is using to destroy you, that's one removal, maybe, and then the 2300 attack comes into play, and Chaos Sorcerer dies.  I mean, you can quickly use him, remove something, and maybe throw out a Tuner, and use him for Synchro Summon, he is Level 6 after all.
 
Ratings:
 
Traditional:  1 /5
Advanced:   2/5 
Art:  4/5

Chaos Sorceror is the only remnant of the Chaos Era (but nobody misses it). When Black Luster Soldier went, this guy was the only Chaos monster left, but was still more than enough to take over the game. Times have passed, and now he's much easier to take down, but also much easier to summon.

The quick and cheap removal effect tears apart hard-to-summon monsters like Synchros, and gives so much versatility to him, even wrecking cards like Marshmallon or anything with boosting or timer effects Chaos Sorceror is back at 3 and just waiting to be abused, but the only issue is that Chaos decks aren't very good.

4/5
Art: He's all like, ligh and dark woah!
Fun Fact: It's CHAOS, NOT TWILIGHT.
Tomorrow: No Twilight.

Has any card had quite the same journey through the Forbidden & Limited list like Chaos Sorcerer? After spending so many years forbidden from play, duelists can now use three copies of Chaos Sorcerer. There's a reason so many copycats like Sky Scourge Enrise or Enishi, Shien's Chancellor exist. It's because Chaos Sorcerer really is that good.

At 2300 ATK and 2000 DEF, he's a bit below where you'd like him to be.
He can take out level 4 monsters or Cyber Dragon in battle, but that's about it. Of course, his effect means you really don't care how big the other monster is. Since Chaos Sorcerer isn't destroying anything, not even Stardust Dragon or Musakani Magatama can stop it.

It's the summoning conditions that give Chaos Sorcerer trouble. You're going to be hard pressed to find an average deck that just happens to play enough LIGHT and DARK monsters for Chaos Sorcerer. Rather, you're likely going to have to build a deck entirely with him in mind. Not that that is a bad idea, as many different Chaos decks are already doing well for themselves this format.

Chaos Sorcerer is a really amazing card, and something you should always be prepared to see when there's a LIGHT and a DARK in your opponent's Graveyard.

Traditional: 1/5 Works in Chaos decks, but those don't FTK. Plus the Envoys do his job better.
Advanced: 5/5 He gets entire decks built around him for a reason.
