Evaluation

RatingA-

Pros

  • Banishes an opponent’s monster.
  • Banishes from your opponent’s graveyard.

Cons

  • Requires a discard cost.

Tips

  • Very useful against archetypes with monsters that change their name in the graveyard. For example Skull Servant, Cyber Dragon, and Dark Magician.

Raigeki Break

Karma Cut is generally a superior version of Raigeki Break because banishing is more powerful than simple destruction and because Karma Cut can disrupt your opponent’s graveyard.

Fabled

The discarding a Fabled monster as the cost of Karma Cut can trigger their effects.

We still don't have any limit 1 staple. This should be the best card to fit into that status.

Drowning M.F. is a battle trap that can be taken out or removed.

Also, Konami usually (if not always) hits cards when the majority of users start using one or more broken card(s) and/or deck(s).

Hasn't karma cut been in the top 3 of used traps for more than a year?

how? like this?
"Discard 1 card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; banish HALF of that target.."

That already reduces its power by 50%

Karma Cut is a necessary evil to take care of problematic monsters like ones that can use GY effects or the kind that can't be destroyed by card effects.

That isn't a valid reason when Konami knowingly made said monsters broken enough just to give players a reason to buy this trap.

It's like the same company spreads the poison first so that you have to buy his cure.

thank god this card exists. there is WAY WAY WAY too much graveyard abuse in this game. might as well just call the graveyard “hand number 2”

Onomat once got 2 XYZ on board cant do much either. one of their effect negates lvl 5 and above summoning. The other one negates monster effect activates on the field...But

There is but... monster effect have 2 types, one activated in response certain condition. The other one activated without targeted effect.

I gave good example. Tried already. Evilswarm halverk effect if attacked, target 1 monster opponent control return to hand, this one can be negated by XYZ Onomat. Kelbek effect any monster attack this card return to hand, this one cant be negated unless by counter trap

Understand !!

Not to mention Onomats don't play XYZ. I mean sure you can splash those Machine Unions in, but why would you do that? It only brick the deck to bring XYZ in.

If you want to play XYZ just play an XYZ-focused deck. Adding VW is a nice idea too.

I play Infernity and I must clarify that doesn't apply to it. Onomat, on the other hand, has that beyond broken skill and Dodododraw.
Infernity is a handless deck. Onomat is a brickless deck.

This is frequently used in ranked now. The effect is basically dark core but why no one plays dark core. Dark core is spell so it can be activated faster. The cost also the same discarding 1 card.

So, dark core is not bad. We just need to know how to use it.
Ok,that made me laugh.
<< Anonymous
Faruk Aksoy Reply
Of course it is usable. Just learn how to use it. The best way to use Dark Core is to replace it with Karma Cut.
<< Anonymous(Faruk Aksoy)

Seriously the only time i find this better than karma cut is in valkyrie deck since they can somehow search it. But Then again they have their own card that almost works exactly as dark core
<< Anonymous
Faruk Aksoy Reply
Exactly. Just as you said,Dark Core is also useful in Valkyrie deck. The best way to use Dark Core in Valkyrie deck is to replace it with Valkyrie's Embrace because Dritte can search it.

I hope that this card will be a limit 1. We don't have any staple at limit 1 yet.

Now that most of the strong floaters are out of the stage I think is fine to limit 2 this card.

But also address TD that activate effects anywhere: hand, gy, banish zone, your pocket, etc.

Anything that turbos out levianeer

I'd like it if they limited levianeer instead but we all know that won't happen and why.

Every card in TD deck limited 3

Levianeer can be limited, as long as it's limited 3.


Aloof Lupine to limited 2
Raiden to limited 2
Dragondark to limited 2

Levianeer to limited 3
Dragonhawk to limited 3


Just need Konami to do that, and TD becomes balanced.

I see a lot of people hate this card on DL however TCG/OCG doesn't even care about it.

Mainly because of small deck and run multiple copies of same name monster cards

If only there is card like this but not banish entire copy of it and it's a trap (We already have the spell one)
