Evaluation

Rating9.5 /10

Riryoku is a very powerful card and ranks highly in terms of card efficiency due to its ability to both decrease your opponent’s monster ATK and add it to your own. Unlike equip cards, Riryoku could only be negated by spell jammer or counter traps which could negate spell effects. Could be included in most decks that otherwise do not use effect damage to win.

Pros

  • Very useful to defeat any high level attack monster.
  • Damage dealt is similar to direct damage, since it is the base attack of the attacking monster.
  • Very flexible card.

Cons

Only useful for 1 turn.

Tips

This cards effect only lasts for a turn, so use it wisely. It's usually best to use it on targets that have higher ATK than anything you have on the board or in your hand.

Riryoku works well in any beatdown deck and is necessary to decks to get high score with Over 5,000 (9,999) Damage duel assessment.

Not sure why this card is rated as a 9.5. You should only ever run this card in farming decks to increase Cerberus's attack, and never in PVP. Cards like Metalmorph or even other continuous spells such as Gravity Axe are more useful since they are permanent buffs and can't be negated as easily as Riryoku. Nearly every deck has Windstorm of Etaqua, and 1 or more copies of both Enemy Controller and Sphere Kuriboh, which basically just makes Riryoku a wasted card

This card was great but after kc cup it became crap. Great for farming. No good PvP pmdeck will have it. To many common counters and doesn't stay on your character.

It should be rated like grave keeper vassal. 10/10 for farming and 3/10 for PvP.

All the people saying this card sucks are conceited, elitist assholes. It's good for farming AND for PvE. And the fact that it's not your precious enemy controllers doesn't mean you're not an asshole for saying it deserves a 3/10. A card can be very good, and still not be a staple. Fuck off with your pretentiousness.

and what will you propose as the Pvp rating of the card? you don't get it, riryoku is frowned upon not because its a subpar ATK-enhancing card that is easily counter-able, but because it's not a quick-play spell. IN SHORT, IT IS NOT FLEXIBLE. oftentimes, board control is important as early as your opponent's turn, and riryoku's pacing is just SLOW and LINEAR.

Hey has anyone tried using it on your own monsters? I reduced attack of 1 to increase the other to see what would happen but afterwards the game would not let me enter battle phase and I just had to end my turn. Why did that happen?

Basically the Magic Cylinder of Duel Links right now. Annoying but there are better cards out now.

Has anybody seen this card with the Card Trader in the past week or so. I haven't. Also should I get it? It feels pretty strong & can work as a substitute for cards like SRH & MW until I get them by collecting gems.

Why Im not able to target a fusion monster like meteor b dragon with Riryoku? It doesn't make sense...

Same for me. No obvious effects in play that should have prevented this. No way he's not classed as a 'monster' card...

Maybe he had a Lord of Dragons on his/her side to the field
