Welcome to Ban List Week Part Dues, we had yesterday off in honor of Labor Day, but you get two cards today.  First up is Evigishki Mind Augus.  The Evigishki Archtype is an interesting and powerful one, yet unreliable.  As most of its Monsters are Rituals, it's a difficult to Deck to function properly.  The Rituals are easy enough to Summon however, as they can be Summoned with any Gishki Ritual card, although some of those cards, and the Monsters, are still only Japanese.  Augus is Restricted, and in my opinion, I suppose if you could get this Deck to run three, and actually pull the effect off all three times for mass advantage, than it makes sense.  This Monster is Level 6, with 2500 attack and 2000 defense, and an Aqua type, Water Monster.  When Ritual Summoned, you can target 5 cards in either player's Graveyard, and shuffle those targets back into the Deck.  You can use this offensively and defensively.  For yourself to reuse resources as part of a combo, or against your opponent to prevent them from a game breaking move.

Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Must first be Ritual Summoned. You can Ritual Summon this card with any "Gishki" Ritual Spell Card. When this card is Ritual Summoned: Target up to 5 cards in any Graveyard(s); shuffle those targets to the Deck.

September 2013 Status:  Limited from Unlimited

It has been a while since we saw a Ritual anywhere on the banned list, but here were are, Evigishki Mind Augus has gone from Unlimited to Limited. Statswise it is never good 2500 ATK and 2000 DEF are very good for a level 6 and it is a WATER/Aqua so it has plenty of support. In order to get Evigishki Mind Augus you need to use any Gishki Ritual, if only all rituals where this flexible.

Evigishki Mind Augus’s effect is an interesting one, granted it is a one-off effect but the ability to return up to 5 cards from any graveyard back into the deck. This is quite useful, allowing you to recycle important cards, conserve your deck size or disrupt your opponent’s plans. Of course it is a ritual monster so it has all the problems associated with them.

Overall while only really playable in Gishki decks its stats and effect do make it one of the more playable rituals around.

Traditional: 3.5/5
Advanced: 3.5/5

We continue our review of cards affected by the Forbidden/Limited List. This week’s set of cards have all been Limited. Today’s card is Evigishki Mind Augus:
 
“Level 6
WATER
Aqua / Ritual / Effect
2500 ATK / 2000 DEF
Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Must first be Ritual Summoned. You can Ritual Summon this card with any “Gishki” Ritual Spell Card. When this card is Ritual Summoned, Target up to 5 cards in any Graveyard(s): shuffle those targets to the Deck.”
 
Now, I’m not entirely well versed in the art of Gishki, but I do know they’re infamous for causing a lot of loops and FTKs. One of them, the Hieratic Gustkraken Loop, was nerfed back in September 2012 by the Limiting of Gustkraken itself.
 
Mind Augus was, from what I’ve heard, part of an infinite draw loop that would eventually result in the opponent Decking Out. This loop supposedly required the use of two Mind Augus, so Limiting it just makes it impossible, while keeping non-FTK based Gishki Decks intact.
 
Outside of that, the card is pretty subpar, even by Gishki standards, as it doesn’t cause immediate advantage. It’s still usable, but it’s not like it was horrendously broken or anything.
 
Traditional: 2/5
Advanced: 3/5
 
Art: 3/5 (A Magician on top of a giant fish it seems?)
