Thoughts on Banlist Part 2

Okay. Since everyone is doing this already, I guess I shld give my 2 cents about this new banlist.

Magician of Faith 「聖なる魔術師」
- Personally, I felt that not many people were really using this card. Konami probably didn't want people to abuse the Pot of Avarice cycle again and again. A card that came back for awhile and went back into the list again.
Breaker the Magical Warrior 「魔導戦士 ブレイカー」
- It was really a good card. A card that came back for awhile and went back into the list again.
Call of the Haunted 「リビングデッドの呼び声」
- This is a good card because it can chain to other cards. But its still a trap and is of course slower then [Premature Burial] . Not much people probably saw this ban coming. Its still a good card overall, 1st turn [Destiny Draw] or [Knight of the End] a [D-Hero Diskguy] into the graveyard, set [Call of the Haunted]? I guess we won't see this combo for awhile. But nevertheless, we probably won't need this card for revival purposes anymore. - Refer to Monster Reborn.

Restricted to 1:
Raiza the Storm Monarch 「風帝ライザー」
- It didn't make it into the previous list as expected and now it finally did. I'm still wondering why they restricted this and not [Caius the Shadow Monarch]. Konami sure is screw loose.
Advanced Ritual Art 「高等儀式術」
- So sad Demise decks! LOL
Monster Reborn 「死者蘇生」
- Now this is the reason why I said we won't need [Call of the Haunted]. There is definitely something wrong with Konami for unbanning this card. Haven't they forgottten how badly this card was abused? With [Call of the Haunted] banned ,even your opponent can't chain cards to save their own monsters! Well, unless you negate it with something... Now our EMOBC decks are now even more gayer! Somebody slap Konami for unbanning this!
Nobleman of Crossout 「抹殺の使徒」
- Since [Magician of Faith] is gone, not many will play this anymore. Unless u hate face down monsters.
Ojama Trio 「おジャマトリオ」
- No more abuse wif Just Desserts and burn!

Restricted to 2:
Cyber Dragon 「サイバー・ドラゴン」
I'm quite used to playing 2 copies of this already. It would only probably affect power bond decks.
Necroface 「ネクロフェイス」
- The infinite life deck is going to be finite!
Light And Darkness Dragon 「光と闇の竜 」
- Finally this card, I thought it was going to be restricted to 1. Oh well, 2 is still rather gay.
Foolish Burial 「おろかな埋葬」
- Why is this even here?
Book of Moon 「月の書」
- Ok cool. Abuse L&DD even with 2?
Mage Power 「魔導師の力」
- Gem Beasts just got bigger! Other than that, not much people play this card either.
Magical Stone Excavation 「魔法石の採掘」
- Omg no DS! Dun abuse this card again! Anyway, with this card to 2, Diamond Dude decks can be much faster.

No longer restricted :
3 copies per deck allowed:
Apprentice Magician 「見習い魔術師」
- Since theres no more Breaker....
U still can abuse this as a searcher, for Old Vindicative Magician or Guiding hand of Phoenix, Cyrstal Seer or simply for tribute folders.
Jinzo 「人造人間-サイコ・ショッカー」
- Ever since it became 2, not much people played this either. Mabe their preparing for LODT?
Red Gadget 「レッド・ガジェット」
Yellow Gadget 「イエロー・ガジェット」
Green Gadget 「グリーン・ガジェット」
- All 3 gadgets were not really powerful after the entire Chimeratech Fortess Dragon thingy.
Pot of Avarice 「貪欲な壺」
- Yay. MMPT anyone? Dun DD. Crow me! T_T
Creature Swap 「強制転移」
- Nice card! Search engine decks are now much gayer.
Reckless Greed 「無謀な欲張り」
- Draw 6 and skip 2 draw phrases? I'd like to abuse this card greatly, but how hard is it to actually draw all 3 at the same time?

Ok, thats basically my thoughts on this list. I feel that its going to be one of the worse lists ever.
They didn't touch
- E.Hero Prismer ( Look at Colin's deck for abuse )
- Dark Armed Dragon
- Arms Hole
- Magician of Black Chaos
but wif Monster Reborn around, it isn't very safe to throw MOBC or Diskguy with Knight of the End anymore... =(
Which also means, we'll be seeing more of EMOBC decks! =D

I hope the new Synchro monsters will change our game more than this stupid banlist!
