Sacred Sword of Seven Stars
 
Wasn't broken in a while but the ban of the Dragon Rulers made laxing this card a no brainer.  It's a 1-for-1 like Trade-In except it doesn't fuel your graveyard.  You can instead banish a LV7 floater from your field.  This card provides minimal advantage and currently lacks a competitive deck to use it with, at the moment.

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Out of all the Level 7 monsters in the TCG, only the “Dragon Rulers” gain effects off being banished. The banning of them significantly brings down the playability of Sacred Sword of Seven Stars.
 
Now at 2, it doesn't really matter what amount of the card you can play when the best monsters to use with the card are banned. It can still be used if you have an abundance of Level 7 monsters in your deck, and banishing them leaves them available to be resurrected from the banished zone later. The card also has the plus of also being able to use a Level 7 monster on the field (if face-up). Mind Control or some other way of stealing an opponents Level 7, then using this card is also an option, though that is very situational
 
Without Sacred Sword, the Dragon Rulers lost some of their speed. Without the Dragon Rulers, Sacred Sword lost almost all its playability.

Sacred Sword of Seven Stars was one of many cards to get a hit because of the Dragon Rulers in the game, and one of the few that was unjustified (along with cards like Debris Dragon, Dragon Ravine, and Gold Sarcophagus).

 

This card, along with the other four, is simply not a problem when the Dragon Rulers are not involved. It is no more than a draw card that even has a hard once per turn clause on it that happened to allow the Dragon Rulers to activate their search effects; when the Rulers were all at 3, this more or less meant Sacred Sword was Pot of Greed for the Deck.

 

No other Deck can really abuse Sacred Sword like the Rulers did; it’s still a good card, and Decks like Sylvan and the upcoming Red-Eyes Deck can make use of it, but they aren’t generating free advantage off of it. The advantage came from the Rulers anyway, and that problem was dealt with (RIP).

 

Rating: 3/5

Sacred Sword of Seven Stars is Semi-Limited at present, and it's an easy enough card to take advantage of.  By removing a Level 7 Monster from play, from your Hand, or side of the Field, you get to Draw two cards from the Deck.  You can only activate one a turn, so honestly, since this card is a break even (the removed Monster, this card, and then gaining two cards for a +/- 0) and only being able to use one of these a turn, I don't see why three isn't allowed.  It's a specific but not terribly difficult at all Draw option, and if you have a few Level 7s (which you probably don't) say three or four, or even more, go ahead and throw one in and see if it helps.

Rating:  3/5
