Circle of the Fire Kings, appropriate named, as this is a circle of sorts, is one of the more interesting Quickplay Magic cards out there.  This is a -1, as you're giving up this card and a Monster you control, to Special Summon one Monster from your Graveyard.  Note too, that you target a Fire Monster (not select) you control (no specification as to position or face up or face down) and one Fire Monster in your Graveyard.  You destroy the Monster you control, and if you do, Special Summon the other Monster from the Graveyard.  I actually like this, trading something weak in for something stronger, I would imagine.  It's more reasonable enough support, and if the -1 doesn't bother you, than use it.  Quickplay is obviously a good thing too, and note again, only one of these can be used per turn.  I understand that with yesterdays card, but don't think it's so necessary here.

Today's card helps by adding the old switcheroo to FIRE decks. Circle of the Fire Kings is a Quick Play spell card that targets 1 FIRE monster you control and 1 FIRE monster in your graveyard. You destroy *Key word here, very important* the monster you control on the field and if you do, special summon the monster you targeted in your graveyard. The fact that this is a Quick Play gives Circle a lot more playability, as you can switch out monsters during the battle phase as an offensive move, or use Circle as a defensive play if one of your FIRE monsters is about to get attacked and switch it for a stronger monster in the grave. Or you can use it to destroy Fire King Garunix after he's attacked, get another FIRE monster of your choosing, and then Garunix back during your next standby phase. Circle of the Fire Kings is a versatile card, being able to be used in a number of ways for different reasons. Used help Synchro summoning, Xyz summoning, or even how I listed before to use during the battle phase. This card makes any FIRE deck very hard to deal with.

Welcome to yet another Card of the Day! Today we will covering the other new spell card that was released in the Fire King Structure deck. Personally, I feel like this is one of the best attribute cards we have received in a long time, so let's take a look at Circle of the Fire Kings!

Circle of the Fire Kings Quick-Play spell card
Target 1 FIRE monster you control and 1 FIRE monster in your Graveyard; destroy that monster you control, and if you do, Special Summon that other monster from your Graveyard. You can only activate 1 "Circle of the Fire Kings" per turn.

So what makes Circle of the Fire Kings good? At first, it looks like a -1 as you simply replace the monster you have on the field with another in grave. However, this card has so much more going for it than that.

The main reason why this is so good is because it is chainable. Suppose you summon Garunix off your onslaught and your opponent chains Bottomless Trap Hole. Normally this would result in a very bad situation for you as a banished Garunix is practically worthless. However, if you already have a fire monster in grave, you can simply replace your Garunix with the fire monster in grave, making this into a 1 for 1. What's better is that this card destroys your monster! Thus, it will activate the effects of Fire King monsters and Hazy Flame Ceb. Thus, you can make some advantage later off of this card.

It's also searchable, thanks to tomorrow's card, which is very handy to have as well.

Advanced: 4.0

It helps flow the deck together very nicely; allowing for Garunix to be live more often. 

Traditional: 2.5

Circle of the Fire Kings
Quick-Play Spell
Target 1 FIRE monster you control and 1 FIRE monster in your Graveyard; destroy that monster you control, and if you do, Special Summon that other monster from your Graveyard. You can only activate 1 "Circle of the Fire Kings" per turn.

Circle of the Fire Kings is another new Spell card from the newest Structure Deck Onslaught of the Fire Kings. Circle of the Fire Kings is a quick-play which allows you destroy 1 FIRE monster you control to Special summon another from your Graveyard. This has a lot of uses, you can get rid of a weak FIRE monster to get a stronger one, attack with 1 monster then get another monster or use it destroy Fire King High Avatar Garunix or Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys so you can get their effect and get another monster.
Overall a solid card for FIRE decks and being a Quick-play helps its usefulness a lot.

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced:  4/5
