Monday

Continuing the theme of last week, we're looking at cards that have had their status changed on the new Ban List.  We open the week with Primal Seed, a card that higher end players should consider taking a look at.  This card only works with Black Luster Soldier--Envoy of the Beginning (or CED in Traditional) that allows you to add two of your removed from play cards to your Hand as long as BLS is on the Field.  Note it doesn't specify, for starters, which side.  Now, odds are this likely could be a removed Tuner, or even two Tuners.  Dimension Fusion is Banned, and Return From the Different Dimension is Restricted.  In card advantage alone, this is a +1, that could end up being more.

Ratings:

Traditional:  2/5
Advanced:  4/5
Art:  3/5

Primal Seed
 
Some people didn't even know what Primal Seed was until it got Limited. If you knew, give yourself a Mokey Mokey on the back. This is on the list to stop people from looping when Macro Cosmos is out. But other than that, this is a really situational card for a monster that can only be searched through The Warrior Returning Alive [or Call/Reborn]. Don't use it.
 
1.5/5
Art: Bleh.
Fun Fact: Did you pick up the new tins? They have Duality!
Tomorrow: It's back! Yay!

Primal Seed begins part two of our Forbidden/Limited discussion.  When I saw this card on the list I had to look it up due to it being released way before I started playing the game (you lost). Upon reading the effect I instantly knew why they limited this card. It boils down to a plus one recursion of your banished monsters and all you need is either a Chaos Emperor Dragon – Envoy of the End (Banned) or a Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning (NEWLY LIMITED).  Both of these heavy hitters have jokes for summoning requirements and once they are successfully summoned feel free to Monster Reborn or Call of the Haunted them back. Did I mention that Primal Seed recurs ANY banished monsters??

Traditional: 2.5
Advanced: 3.5

Monday:
Today's card is Primal Seed. If you're like me, you had no idea what this card was prior to seeing to the list. There's a good reason for that, as Primal Seed was, and is, completely useless until Thursday.
It's a normal spell that can only be used if one of the two Envoys are on the field. Add 2 of your removed from play cards to your hand. Now that Envoy of the Beginning is usable for whatever God-awful reason, Primal Seed can actually be useful. The list isn't particularly known for being preventative, but in this case, it looks as if Konami decided to take steps to prevent this card from being abused.
 
Traditional: 4/5 (you can actually use both Envoys here)
Advanced: 2.5/5
Art: Shiny
