We are now down to our Top 5 of the Top 10 Cards of 2016. Our #5 card is The Phantom Knights of Break Sword!
 
Position on my list: #5 (ayy)
 
This is, in my opinion, the best Rank 3 monster in the game, and probably the main reason Rank 3 monsters are once again back in the limelight. A Scrap Dragon for Rank 3’s is very strong as it is, but Break Sword’s alternate effect that lets you make DARK Rank 4’s in a Phantom Knights Deck makes its utility even better.
 
The Deck that made the most of Break Sword was obviously Phantom Knight Burning Abyss (or BAPK or PK Fire, whatever you prefer), but the card is just so generically good that practically any Deck that can easily make Rank 3’s will probably be playing it. Metalfoes also commonly plays it, for example, due to the vast amount of Level 3 monsters the Deck runs.
 
This is a card that will remain relevant as long as Rank 3’s remain relevant, or until something comes out that completely outclasses it.
 
Rating: 5/5

Is number 5 yet another Top Ten Card that hasn't been reviewed before? The Phantom Knights of Break Sword is a Rank 3 Dark Warrior-type XYZ Monster with 2000 Atk and 1000 Def. It's strong enough for Rank 3, and it has the ability to bring forth materials in the grave to make a Rank 4 XYZ monster after it has been destroyed. The only real downside to Break Sword is that its first effect targets for destruction a card on your side and a card on the opponent's side. 
 
The archetype in general is very ready to fit into other decks. Obviously Burning Abyss and Phantom Knights have been friends since Phantom Knights were released. Giving Burning Abyss easy access to removal, besides Farfa, really strengthened the deck. I may not have had this card on my list, but I can see why The Phantom Knights of Break Sword is a Top Ten Card. 
 
Score: 4/5

Happy post Christmas everyone, we continue our countdown and move into the second half, at #5, with The Phantom Knights of Break Sword.  Rank 3 (XYZ Summoned with two Level 3 Monsters) Dark, Warrior, 2000 attack, and 1400 defense.  This card obviously works best in it's theme, but the destruction effect is fun, and asset to many other Decks also.  Plenty of Decks gain advantage by destroying, even their own cards.  The 2000 attack is a bit low, but not necessarily so for a generic Rank 3.  If destroyed (having been XYZ Summoned first) you Target and Special Summon two Phantom Knight Monsters of the same Level from your Graveyard, and they have their Levels increased by 1.  You're conformed to only Special Summon Dark Monsters for the rest of the turn, but that only further plays into your Hand.  Honestly, you might end up just bringing him out, using his first effect, destroy this, and then XYZ something better anyway.  He's fun and great support for a theme.
