If you run DARK decks, this is for you. Hate Lightsworn, or LIGHT variants? This is your guy. Dark Blade is a Warrior-type, thus he gets all their good stuff...Such as Reinforcements and Warrior Returning Alive. And being DARK, he can be thrown in a lot of different decks. The Captain has pretty good stats with 1800 ATK and 1500 DEF. But what really makes him good is his ability to banish a DARK monster from your grave to nab a level 4 or lower LIGHT monster your opponent controls and equip it to Dark Blade. If he is equipped with a LIGHT monster when it's destroyed, you can send the LIGHT monster it's equipped with is destroyed instead. While it maybe a bit situational, but under the right circumstances, Dark Blade can get past a lot and survive whatever your opponent can throw at him, at least once. It's worth at the very least a spot in the side deck, just in case. 
 
Traditional: 2.5
Advanced: 3.5
Tomorrow: This dragon will have you seeing double.

Dark Blade the Captain of the Evil World
Lv. 4/DARK/Warrior/1800A/1500D
"Once per turn: You can banish 1 DARK monster from your Graveyard to target 1 Level 4 or lower LIGHT monster your opponent controls; equip it to this card. (You can only equip 1 monster at a time to this card with this effect.) If this card on the field would be destroyed, the monster equipped to it with this effect is destroyed, instead."

Sigh, another card that could've been great if it wasn't so restricted. This guy is severely limited by the attribute and the level of the monster he uses his effect on. If he could target high level LIGHT monsters, he'd be very useful, but against lower level LIGHT monsters, he's lackluster. He'd be great against Lightsworn decks, but not a lot else. If he wasn't so restrictive on his effect, he'd be an alright splash card in Blackwing, Gravekeepers (as long as Necrovalley is not in play), or Dark World decks. As it is, he's another almost unusable Silver rare.

Traditional: 2.25
Advanced: 2.5

Psycho
At least if the effect lets you down, his ATK isn't too shabby.
 
First and foremost, you do not use Dark Blade in your Main Deck; he is always in your Side Deck. Even then, he is too quite too situational to warrant a slot. His effect, whilst not appalling, is not something you can really take advantage of. If you have a Deck with D.D. Scout Plane and intend to do a lot of banishing Darks, Dark Blade can be a consideration, but he's not spectacular, and you really might as well use Penumbral Soldier Lady. 1800 ATK for a Dark Warrior is almost unsurpassed, though.
 
Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1.5/5
Aesthetics: 4.5/5 If a retrained version of the original Dark Blade isn't awesome enough for you, you most definitely have issues. However, I feel Evil World is a huge ripoff from Dark World, and if they're not gonna put Captain Dark Blade into Dark World, they better make a whole freaking Evil World archetype.
