Evaluation

RatingB-

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.

A fun way to play this is with invoked. Easily summon the 3000 attack earth invoked and then Riryoku any of your opponents monster and you add that to your earth invoked and then boost up with Aleister and deal exactly 4000 damage every.

Just imagine: This, but it's a quick-spell...

It's not a Quick-Play Spell, but that basically describes Honest effectively. (Both will have the net result of the opponent's monster losing and them taking damage equal to the ATK your monster had beforehand.)

Another what-if, though: Imagine if this kept its anime effect. (Halving the opponent's LP instead of the ATK of one of their monsters.)

Shrink is similar, though it doesnt boost your own monsters attack, only halves theirs. It is a quick play tho

Best card 2018 WCS easily 10/10

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.
🔥 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.

Nope. With wod and mirror wall running rampant, it's still good.

If you are good player you would know if the set card is quick spell or trap card (which most of cases happen to be those 2)

Back on my childhood I wasn't aware that only quick-spell type can be activate during battle phase. All those scenes on anime where main character activate their equip spell on battle phase is a lie. Lol noob DM.

It's up to you. The card itself is good, it can help you go over opponent's attack disregard of their WoD/ mirror wall. But I only keep 1 because I have other cards that does the same

Why can't I use it on Kaibamen? I couldn't figure it out, 2 times in a row I lost the game because of it.

Literally had a game on Duel Links where an AI Bastion had Hydrogeddon and Oxygeddon on the board. I had a Cerberus with 3400 atk. the AI played Riryoku targetting my Cerberus putting it to 1700 atk then targets their Hydrogeddon putting it from 1600 to 3300. I also have a set ECon face down. AI enters battle phase and attacks with their Hydrogeddon first (No joke) So I Econed it. Cerberus did not gain a spell counter keeping it to 1700. I basically lost the duel because my Cerberus got run over by a monster (The Oxygeddon) that should not have been able to attack it due to my Cerberus nt being 2200 like it should have been but apparently Riryoku and Hydrogddon negate spell counters on monsters that gain them upon a spells activation.

Hard stuck in plat rank i now regret the millions of gems wasted on noble knights instead of stap...
Not trash at all for farming in DL, though.
Second animation card, most likely. His first logically should be Blade Blaster.
She wants more Nekroz support
