Out of the Blue is a very strange Continuous Magic card, one that could actually (maybe) be the focal point of some very unconventional Decks.  This card is destroyed if your opponent activates a card or effect that targets a card or cards in the Graveyard, either Graveyard.  When destroyed and sent to the Graveyard by this effect, your opponent shuffles all cards in their Graveyard back into their Deck.  It can certainly stop or at least really put a hurting on all that Synchro from the Graveyard moves a lot of Decks have made so popular.  There aren't really any mainstream ways to use this card, but it certainly is one of the more interesting cards out there.

Out of the Blue is just that. Another card from extreme victory; cont.
magic, with a random effect. This card is destroyed when an opponents effect targets a card/s in the graveyard. When its destroyed by said effect and hits the grave your opponent shuffles all cards in his/her grave to his/her deck. Wow...thats pretty decent actually...but is quite situational. Out of the Blue is one of those cards you consider placing in your side deck but eventually throw aside because there are so many better cards you can run. Furthermore, all cards are returned to the deck which gives your opponent back key magic/trap cards or the engine of his/her deck; plants, recruiters, etc. I love the art but not the card. Its hilarious to view, and simply silly to play. Another forgettable card that won't see major play.

My name is Justin Dominguez and I want to thank you all for welcoming me to the Card of the Day Review team. I want to give you a little bit of background about myself. I am an avid player.  I have been playing for about 2 years now. I am from Dallas, Texas and travel all over Texas for regional tournaments. I’ll try to start wearing something that sticks out in case you guys want to say hello. I am new but I have caught on quick and will be writing from the perspective of players who are either new or transitioning from casual to competitive play.  Now the card review:
 
Today we have Out of the Blue a continuous spell card that has a rather amusing effect. When we cut through all the text we learn that it’s a graveyard bomb. Whenever anything happens TO a card IN the ‘yard, you destroy the card and send all the cards from the ‘yard back into the deck and shuffle the deck. This is one of those cards that had a great idea behind it, but a rather lackluster design. It’s a great way to disrupt graveyard based decks, i.e. anything with plants, zombies, or the recent YCS topping infernities. Where this card falls short is what I assume Konami did to keep it from being broken. Had this card been a quickplay and instead removed from play it would have been devastating. I would not want my opponent to be allowed to shuffle back into their deck limited or staple monsters, spells or traps that had been either used already or milled.

Out of the Blue
 
This card has potential in it's ability to interrupt cards like Debris Dragon or Double-Edged Sword Technique by returning the graveyard targets back to the deck. The effect of Out of the Blue isn't bad, but because it's continuous your opponent can play around it very easily. Also, because the cards are only returned to the deck, your opponent can always re-use them. With something like D.D. Crow, the targeted card will get removed instead of just being sent back to the deck. For example, if your opponent summons Debris Dragon and targets Dandylion in the graveyard, you can chain D.D. Crow to remove the card and the play is done. If you used Out of the Blue, your opponent might simply use Mystical Space Typhoon to destroy Out of the Blue and then continue with their Debris Dragon play. I feel like this card has some potential, but there are other cards out there that are just better (D.D. Crow, The Transmigration Prophecy, etc.)

Out of the Blue:

This is an interesting new card from EXVC. But does interesting mean playable? Out of the Blue basically acts as a reverse super D.D. Crow, returning all cards in your opponent's Graveyard to their deck, but only when they target a card in a Graveyard, whether it's yours or their own. The most common cards this would be even remotely proactive against would be Pot of Avarice and Monster Reborn, but not much else I can think of. It would be difficult to actually make good use of this card to mess up your opponent's plans. The fact that it's a continuous means they'll either play around it or remove it with another card. Or they could purposely play something just to get their entire graveyard back, which may not always be good, since they would be basically starting over while you have used up cards you can't use anymore. If it was a Quick-Play, it might be a bit more playable as a surprise card, but as it is, I don't see this being played all that much, even though this is a fairly Graveyard-dependent format. Giving your opponent all their resources back is not good yugiohz.

Hi Pojo People! Starting today, IŽll be here, to bring a review for you.

          Out of the Blue, is a interesting Continuous Spell Card that locks your opponent from targeting card on graveyard, or if he targets, will lose the graveyard either way. This card also puts your opponent under a lot of pressure, causing him to spend resources to get rid of this card as soon as possible, or in the worst case, losing the entire graveyard and not to mention that it also slowdown a lot the deck.

          Combo with Transmigration Break, to have a  Fiend Comedian without the downside of  losing the cards from the top deck.  Speaking of downside , this card has to be destroyed by its own effect, or the second effect wonŽt be activated, so Mystical Space Typhoon, Dust Tornado etc.. will ruin your strategy.

         Out of the Blue may fits on some side decks against graveyards heavily oriented decks , like Fish/Frogs decks, Decks using the Plant engine Dandy/Spore/Glow-UP , Vayu Turbo, Zombies, Disaster Dragons..and more.

         I really liked this card, and IŽll try 2 on my side deck.
