XX-Saber Darksoul, a rather unremarkable monster, at
least at a glance. You have a Level 3, Earth
attributed monster, who for some reason is a Beast,
although Warrior, Fiend, even Zombie might make more
sense, with 100 attack and defense. His effect
is very simple, when sent to the Graveayrd (under
your control) during the End Phase you can add an
X-Saber mosnter from your Deck ot your Hand.
It is very good (and only good) for X-Sabers but it
adds speed and new resources, something else that
X-Sabers are very good at. X-Sabers strike me
as really weird as an Archtype, overall.
Sometimes they seem to be really popular, and at
other times, it seems like no one is playing them at
all. They always seem to be Tier 1.5 or so in
4/5 for X-Saber
#8 is XX-Saber Darksoul, that expensive card you
don't have. A super Sangan for X-Sabers, Darksoul
can search out ANYTHING. Yes, even Faultroll. But
you already knew that, probably. The fact that you
can dump and revive this guy to get multiple cards
out of your deck. It's a little ridiculous.
Take Sangan. Make it super-revivable. Expand its
search to every monster in your deck. Give it tons
of support to back it up. This is why XX-Saber
Darksoul is what fuels the X-Saber deck, allowing it
to sit at the top of the tier list, and top 8 stuff.
Bla bla bla. More X-Saber propaganda.
Art: It's only a Beast because Rescue Cat wanted to
have more fun before its ban.
Fun Fact: There are 10 each of X- and XX-Sabers.
Card number 8 on our countdown is XX-Saber
Darksoul. Darksoul is essentially the backbone of
the once proud Saber Dynasty. He’s a super searcher
on crack who allows you to add any Saber from deck
to hand during the end phase of the turn he’s sent
to the Graveyard from the field. Anyone who’s played
Sabers (or played against Sabers) knows that a good
Saber player can re-reuse Darksouls to the point
that they’re pulling around three cards to their
hand during the end phase, which is broken hand
advantage in and of itself. Add the fact that
Darksoul is easy fodder for Synchros like Hyunlei or
Gottoms, and you’ve got a pretty amazing engine on
your hands. Darksoul’s seen some decline since the
fall of the mighty Sabers, starting when their Cat
got shot in the face with the ban hammer that
fateful September, but he still remains a treasure
for those who refuse to give up their beloved Sabers
and run GK’s or Samurais. All in all, I think
Darksoul was a very important card of the year
simply because of his ability to create an amazingly
consistent engine for a very powerful deck.

If you’ve ever wanted to see a broken search card,
Darksoul’s your man… Chihuahua thing. This card has
one of the most broken searching abilities to date.
With the ability to search during your End Phase for
each time this card is sent (well, before the ruling
at least), this card can single handedly bring you
every card needed to win in almost any situation.
One of the reasons I loved this card so much is the
fact that you could bring XX-Saber Faultroll to your
hand even though he’s a six star. Most searchers can
only bring levels 4 and lower, but not this mean
little puppy. This card also makes mean synchro
combos when used with XX-Saber Fulhelmknight.
Overall, I think that this little card gave
XX-Sabers the push they needed to really become the
top deck that they were.
Traditional: 4/5 (This format still has the kitty)
