Future Fusion also finds its way to the Ban List, and we haven't reviewed this since its release in Power of the Duelist.  Future Fusion is one of those Bans that I don't really understand.  All right, let me clarify a bit...I DO understand, but I don't think it was necessarily, necessary.  Future Fusion is certainly a powerful card, but it doesn't have any OTK or FTK capability.  It's also a Continuous Magic card, which is easy enough to destroy with Heavy Storm and a triple onslaught of Mystical Space Typhoon.  Plus you don't get the Monster until the 2nd Standby Phase after you play Future Fusion, so it's not instant advantage either.  I guess this sort of adds some competitive fairness to the game, but I think a Restriction would have been plenty.  I still see this as a decent card in Traditional, and this obviously REALLY hurts Dragon and Chimera Decks for one.  But it doesn't get a high rating in Traditional cause there are much better Fusion options in that Format.
 
Ratings:

Traditional:  5-x/5 where X = 1 for each better Fusion option...namely Cyber Stein and Magical Scientist so 3/5
 
Advanced:  Banned/5
Art:  4/5

One of the win conditions for Dragons has been dealt with by the new ban list. Future Fusion is no more. Drawing this card usually meant good game. It is not the monster it could bring out during the second turn that makes Future Fusion so good, but the Painful Choice type effect that sends five Dragons to the graveyard by selecting Five God Dragon. This gives you all of the fodder you need to bring out cards like Chaos Sorcerer and BLS. It also gives you cards to reborn with Red-Eyes, Call, Monster Reborn, and Lightpulsar Dragon. It also lets you send Wyvern to the graveyard so you can search out Red-Eyes and Dark Armed Dragon.
 
Apparently, Konami wanted to send a strong message to Dragon deck players, by banning their luck sacking card and slice and dicing their boss monster Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon. So much for Dragons and they weren’t even that dominant in the first place.
 
Traditional: 5/5

Welcome back for another banned CotD: Future Fusion

Continuous Spell

“Reveal 1 Fusion Monster in your Extra Deck and send, from your Main Deck to the Graveyard, the Fusion Material Monsters that are listed on that Fusion Monster Card. During your 2nd Standby Phase after this card's activation, Special Summon 1 of that Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck and target it with this card. (This Special Summon is treated as a Fusion Summon.) When this card leaves the field, destroy that target. When that target is destroyed, destroy this card.”

Let me begin by saying that this card should have been hit a VERY long time ago, but this card was still seen in a few decks: Chaos Dragons, eHERO, Photon, and Worm decks. Chaos Dragon’s dumped Eclipse Wyvers, Light pulsars, and basically set up their grave for very explosive plays. eHERO decks would just dump to get them in the grave for Miracle Fusion to be active.

I personally played it in Debris Hero and in my Ice Barier dHERO deck. I would activate FF and dump an eHERO Alius and Dandylion. I would get the two tokens and summon Debris Dragon targeting Dandylion for its effect, synch for Scrap Dragon and have 3 tokens left on the field for Scrap Dragon’s effect.For my other deck I would dump Dasher/Malicious and a Treeborn frog/General Gantala.

This card didn’t have too many plays, but the ones it did could end up being monumental.

Advanced: (would be a 4/5)

Traditional: 3/5

Future Fusion
Continuous Spell
"Reveal 1 Fusion Monster in your Extra Deck and send, from your Main Deck to the Graveyard, the Fusion Material Monsters that are listed on that Fusion Monster Card. During your 2nd Standby Phase after this card's activation, Special Summon 1 of that Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck and target it with this card. (This Special Summon is treated as a Fusion Summon.) When this card leaves the field, destroy that target. When that target is destroyed, destroy this card."

To be honest (not the card, the quality of personality), I never saw that this card was the most useful in a tournament-level game due to the heavy amount of S/T removal. With MST at 3 along with Heavy Storm, the likelyhood of keeping this in play long enough for it's effect to fully activate are somewhat slim. That's why Swords of Revealing Light and Call of the Haunted are now fully unrestricted, because they usually won't be around for very long. While it's true that you can get out some impressive monsters with this card, the chances of doing so are less than ideal, making this an iffy card to use if you don't plan on some negation cards to protect it from destruction.

Traditional: 2.5
Advanced: 2.75 (but banned)

We're looking at cards that are affected by the recent change of the Forbidden/Limited list this past Sept. 1st. Future Fusion is a card that was always there, but until the release of the Dragon Structure deck some time ago, it really became one of those problem cards.  You dumped whatever you needed in the graveyard and brought it back with either Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon, or Lightpulsar Dragon and flood the field real fast. Then there was the threat of 5 Headed Dragon. Heroes could use this as well, but Dragons are the guilty party in this. I can see why FF had to go and I understand why. 
 
Traditional: 5
Advanced: BANNED
