Foolish Burial is somewhat appropriate for April Fools I think, and it's fun to do a serious review as opposed to a junky janky one as seems to be the suit.  Foolish Burial is Limited, and is a very good combo card.  It doesn't do very much ON ITS OWN, and isn't welcome in all Decks.  But any Deck that can benefit from having or more quickly adding necessary cards or Monsters to the Graveyard (like Fire Fist, Lightsworn, Zombie, E-Hero, just to name some) really enjoy Foolish Burial.  It might even be better in Traditional just because of it can make fast even faster.

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Happy April Fools everyone! No jokes from KoL, I assure you. Today's CoTD is a card Joey Wheeler used to combo with Graverobber back in the day: Foolish Burial. While they slightly altered the effect for the show, the real Foolish Burial is still a great card. A Normal Spell Card, Foolish lets you send a monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, pretty straight forward.
 
Foolish Burial can be a game-changing card in the right deck, but mostly it is a card that sets up a move you will be executing the turn you play it. Lightsworns use it to send Wulf to the grave, then Wulf Special Summons itself, then they can sacrifice it for Celestia. Destiny Heros bury Malicious to set up big plays, and Zombies put Mezuki from their Deck into their Graveyard so they can remove it and Special Summon a Zombie-Type monster (they can also bury Plaugespreader Zombie for Synchro Summons). So many monsters work well with Foolish Burial and almost any deck can play it.
 
The only negatives to Foolish Burial are that if you draw it late in the game it may not do you any good (no targets), and if there is a card that has an effect like Dimensional Fissure or Macro Cosmos has, then Foolish Burial is pretty useless.
 
Traditional- 4/5
Advanced- banned/5
Art- 3/5

Foolish Burial

A timeless classic. No matter what the format is, it will find a place, as it always has. A -1, but a smart -1. I'd argue that it's even better in Traditional because there's way more combos with it. In Advanced, you'll often break even with the -1 and get a bit of Speed. In Traditional, you use that smidgeon of graveyard power to work an explosive combo that will win you the game. Or at least an engine you can abuse to maintain hand control. You would think with Painful Choice, it's obsolete.  Nah.  Not at all.  Painful Jr. can still do a lot of good for the times where you don't draw PC.

When this card first came out in the old day, yeah, there was some potentials. And the whole “Foolish + Reborn” combo was cool. But it's been fully realized since the Synchro era.

It's like a suit that never goes out of style. It always finds a way to be relevant because it has a simple but really useful effect.

Traditional: 4.0 (Great)
Advanced: 3.5 (Very Good)

Terrorking Most people normally save trivia for the end, but I am not "most" people, so here's a bit of Trivia on this card. It debuted back in the original Yu-Gi-Oh anime, was a trap card and played by Joey Wheeler/Katsuya Jonouchi against Odion/Rishid to send his own Jinzo to the Graveyard, and then he proceeded to revive it and shatter Rishid's strategy.
 
Now that wasn't just blind trivia. No, it ties back into this review. See, that's how Foolish Burial has ALWAYS been used. Send a crucial combo piece to the Graveyard (Glow-Up Bulb, Spore, Dandylion, Wulf, etc) and then resummon it and do your crazy shenanigans. For the sheer combo potential this card has, I shall not go further into what it can do. 
 
Advanced: 4.5/5
Traditional: 4/5
