So, in short, this card negates the effects of your Qliphort monsters (which is good because it allows them to retain their high original ATK's) and it also negates the opponent's monster, which can be debilitating.  There was one problem.  With Skill Drain at 3, why bother to use this?
 
Skill Drain is more versatile, easier to use, lasts for more than just one turn per monster, doesn't die if there's no Qli cards on your field, and won't banish your monsters.  But now that Skill Drain is at 1, I'll certainly be using 2 of these in my Qliphort deck as very good alternatives.
 
3.75/5

Re-qliate...can you guess what Deck this is for?  This card seems really awesome, yet seems really ordinary at the same time.  Any Monster that is Normal or Flip Summoned has its effect(s) negated until the End of the turn, and if it's a Level 5 or higher Monster, it's removed from play when it leaves the Field.  Those, in itself, aren't terrible.  They just aren't particularly good either.  This might be fun as Tech in other Decks BUT it's destroyed if it's the only "Qli" card on the Field.  It's disruptive, just not for long enough, and won't hit anything in the XYZ world.  Try it and see I suppose, but I think if your playing Qli, you don't need it.

Re-qliate
 
At first this card seems like a replacement to Skill Drain that Qliphort’s can easily search for whenever they need…
 
But then you investigate this card further and it goes from seeming great, to average, to bad and then to near garbage.
 
For a start, if you have no other “Qli” cards on the field other than itself it auto-destructs, meaning that an opponent can potentially get rid of this without requiring a card to do so.
And further, this means that you can never activate it without their being any other “Qli” cards on the field.
 
And then it gets worse, its effect is Mandatory, so this means that optional trigger effects completely dodge it… So the only way to stop monsters with these effects is to Chain Re-qliate to the Summon, in which case there are already better options with which to Negate monsters effects. Plus, Xyz monsters, since they don’t have a Level are also unaffected by it.
 
Re-qliate does absolutely nothing to address the loss of Skill Drain, it doesn’t even come close, but hey, at least it is searchable… Its one redeeming factor!
 
Rating: 2. There is better effect negation out there than this.
