Super Rejuvenation, an oldie but a goody, to coin a phrase, is another Magic card that found its way to Ban land.  Dragon Rulers got hit very hard by this new list, Hieratic Dragons can use, and so can a Blue Eyes hybrid Deck.  Speaking of, shortly there's a new Structure Deck coming out specifically with new Blue Eyes support, a new Synchro, and other awesome Dragon support cards.  Super Rejuvenation is all about replacing and gaining card advantage.  This was a smart Ban, even at one, a player could still gain mass advantage out of this.  Not having any may force the player to be a little more conservative in the play of their game.

Super Rejuvenation
Quick Play Spell
During the End Phase of the turn this card is activated, draw 1 card from your Deck for each Dragon-Type monster discarded from your hand and/or Tributed during this turn.

September 2013 Status: Forbidden (From Unlimited)

First it was a niche card played in certain decks, then Hieratics came along, then Dragon Rulers, soon this card was everywhere. Welcome to the next card to be banned, Super Rejuvenation!

Super Rejuvenation was a simple quick-play spell that when it first came out it was largely ignored as if you were lucky you might draw a card from its effect but it took off when Hieratics allowed you to tribute from your hand and until September this was critical for Dragon decks. As with Spellbook of Judgement yesterday, Super Rejuvenation allowed a Dragon player to replenish their hand at the end of the turn. Similarly to Spellbook of Judgement, the only catch was that you drew the cards at the end phase.
Of course, it’s no surprise it has been banned, Konami hate draw power as seen with the likes of Pot of Greed and co. staying on the list for years. Still for Dragon decks this is another blow coupled with the banning of the Dragon Rulers.

Overall a huge blow to Dragon decks, with their main way of replenishing their hand gone, they will have to be very careful with their plays.

Traditional: 4/5
Advanced: N/A (Forbidden)

We continue our newly-Forbidden cards week with another card that has gone straight from 3 to 0. This one was sometimes called the Spellbook of Judgment for Dragon Rulers, and while it isn’t entirely accurate, it’s pretty close. Say hello to Super Rejuvenation:

 

Quick-Play Spell Card

During the End Phase of the turn this card is activated, draw 1 card from your Deck for each Dragon-Type monster discarded from your hand and/or Tributed during this turn.

 

This card has a history of abuse, and is an example of a mediocre card that slowly became broken as the game evolved (think Cold Wave or Rescue Cat). Its first widespread use that I know of was in the Deep Draw Exodia Deck that utilized Trade-In, Cards of Consonance, Blue-Eyes White Dragon, and The White Stone of Legend. With all of that discarding, Super Rejuvenation could easily draw you a lot of other cards. And if you drew another in the End Phase you could immediately activate it. This Deck, while easily the most consistent Exodia Deck at the time (if not ever), was not enough of a threat to make Super Rejuvenation banworthy.

 

But the Dragon Ruler Deck was.

 

Each of the four baby Dragon Rulers discarded to activate their effects. Considering how easy it was to search them out, getting four to six cards off of a Super Rejuvenation was very common. Two at minimum was guaranteed.

 

The Dragon Ruler Deck was known for a nearly endless amount of resources, but this card helped make sure they never ran out. While the banning of all four baby Dragons means that Super Rejuvenation wouldn’t have been able to be used in that Deck anymore anyway, it’s banning is justified, as it is a card that really restricted future card design. Like Spellbook of Judgment, I don’t think this one will be missed much (unless you play Exodia, at which point I suggest you stop playing Solitaire).

 

Traditional: 5/5 (Dragon Ruler can probably still be solid here)

Advanced: BANNED (5/5 when legal)

 

Art: 2/5 (Cave Dragon being healed. It’s honestly not spectacular in my opinion)

 

Tomorrow: NO!!
