Honest

 

Welcome to ban list week!  Some choices we all wanted, some we didn't and a few we weren't expected.  All in all, a decent-enough list, but quite tame and unambitious compared to Japan's list.

 

Honest essentially a 1-for-1 removal option that you might have to spend on a big floater like Dante or Construct, but it protects your monsters and helps keep your life points free from being attacked to death, and that's important.  Honest can also inflict a nice chunk of damage (1500+ usually).  This might not matter much in a control-based duel but will make an impact to help your aggro plays, especially with two of them.  There are lots of good LIGHT decks out there like Bujins, Lightsworns and Satellarknights which can all definitely benefit from an extra Honest.  Quality card all around.

 

3.5/5

Hello Pojo Fans,
 
Hope everyone has recovered from the New Years celebrations and are ready to leap head-first into 2015. Today we're looking at a card that has come back to 2: Honest.
 
One of the most well-known “hand traps” in the game, Honest gives any LIGHT monster the ability to take down any monster in battle. The ATK boost will help eliminate the monster you are attacking, or can help you push through for extra damage (if not a game-finishing move). The ability to activate this cards effect on either players turn adds to its flexibility. As a monster, it has decently strong DEF that can hold up to an attacking monster.
 
Honest has the added ability to return itself (while face-up) back to the hand during either of your Main Phases. Summon it in Main Phase 1, attack, then bounce it back to your hand to help protect another LIGHT monster of yours you may have on the field. Bujins, Lightsworns, and tellarknights are some of the many decktypes this card should be run in.
 
The attack boost Honest can give any LIGHT monster you run during either players Damage Calculation is reason enough to play it in a LIGHT-based deck. With plenty of ways to use Honest multiple times, and the added benefit of it being semi-limited, LIGHT decks should run it in 2.

It's a new Forbidden & Limited list and we're taking a week to look at a few cards that were affect by this new change. First up is a personal favorite of mine, Honest. A level 4 LIGHT/Fairy with the ATK/DEF of 1100/1900. During your main phase, you can return this card to your hand. When a LIGHT monster you control attacks or is attacked, during the damage step, you can discard this card from your hand and your monster gains attack equal to the monster it's battling until the end phase of this turn. Now that this card is back at two, it can make some kind of impact again. From Lightsworn to Bujin, Fairies to Batteryman, Honest can give a lot of decks a much needed boost. You will be seeing this card this format. a lot of it.

Welcome to Ban List week, always a nice way to kick off a new year!  We open this Ban Week with Honest, who now finds itself in Semi-Restricted status.  I believe it was Ex Minion of Darkness who said that when a card sees it's status go down the Ban List (ie the number of copies you can use goes up) the less of an impact it has on a Format.  Honest is still good, make no mistake, but as just referenced, it isn't the force it once was.  Honest is best used as a defense mechanism, but also a welcome attack option as well.  The biggest Deck it helps would be Lightsworn, which should be obvious, but things like Stellarknights and Bujins as well.  To turn a phrase, it's an Honest 1-for-1, and things like that are welcome in the game.  A second one at your disposal isn't going to wreck things at all, it's actually a pretty solid move on the list.

Honest was just moved from Limited to Semi-Limited this banlist cycle, although the OCG adopted this change about a year ago. This card does a lot, and frankly I’m not sure moving it up was a healthy move. Any LIGHT Deck can use him, and he provides a lot of momentum for the player who uses it; being able to kill any opposing monster while also taking a large chunk out of your opponent’s Life Points with just one card is brutal.
 
The meta is not favorable to Honest right now though. Currently we’re seeing large numbers of Burning Abyss, Qliphort, and Shaddoll. The Deck that would be able to use Honest of those three is Shaddoll, but it’s not useful enough; the three primary LIGHTs in that Deck are Wyverburster, Construct, and Denko Sekka. You could use Honest to protect Denko Sekka, but this will be situational at best.
 
Lower tier Decks like Satellarknight, Bujin, and Lightsworn can certainly make good use of a second Honest though. Pretty much any Deck with a heavy LIGHT focus can.
