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.
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.
Only useful for 1 turn.
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. → How to get high score
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
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.
right now there is riryoku in trader pool card, should i get it ? I already have 1 copy. should I get the second??
you have to reach a certain stage 17, after that you just have to keep checking every 12 hours until it shows up. I still haven't seen gravekeeper's oracle since it's release too, some cards just don't want to show up i guess. it's too random sometimes.
Gravekeeper's Oracle was just made available 2 days ago. Either 1) I don't know up to this point that the cards available from the card trader VARIES from player to player, or 2) you just started playing a day ago.
Metalmorph can make surprising plays since you can activate it during opponent's battle phase, however Riryoku's ability to target virtually anything that has ATK stat (you can also target both TWO of your OWN monsters on the field) is VERY HARD TO PASS UP. Metalmorph works better if your opponent has a slight advantage in momentum, but if you think you are stronger and want a surefire win using
Thanks for the response. Ic what you mean. They both have a similar effect but one is a trap card and work like a equip card, it can be activated during your opponent turn so it can work like reinforcement and mirror wall, the other is a spell card and it last for one turn only. Imo Metamorph is more versatile and can be use in many situation.
The sacrifices i made for this card.... 3 of my ultra rares... and 30 spell cards... it was painful, but it was worth it?
my biggest loss was a dark magician, but it was expendable because I had a second.
WHERE THE HELL DID YOU SPEND YOUR "ULTRA RARE" FREEBIES AFTER FARMING RECENT PEGASUS EVENT? THE EVENT GAVE YOU TWO? DAFUQ, PEOPLE NOWADAYS DON'T KNOW WHAT TO PRIORITIZE. DON'T TELL ME YOU BOUGHT A RED EYES B. D. OR SOMETHING ELSE... ONLY SAVE ULTRA RARES FOR RIRYOKU OR AIRKNIGHT PARSHATH!
YOu stfu, if he's free to do whatever he wants, then he shouldn't be expressing his disappointments in here either, both of you should just STFU since it was your decision not to be wise when saving UR tokens.
Why Im not able to target a fusion monster like meteor b dragon with Riryoku? It doesn't make sense...
OMG. My game ramped up so much with just one addition of this card! Having ONE RIRYOKU in deck vs TWO RIRYOKUS made so much difference! Power, flexibility and versatility, Riryoku screams these all! Konami are you sure this is not a broken OP card?
