I love the clothes and the dinosaur’s face and expression.
This card is pretty much used in TCG/OCG meta, with its versatility and speed it could be added to alot of decks in the present and specially the future.

Because it's equip spell and easily abused by Isolde. Sometimes power tool dragon. Also that's the reason why premature burial that can summon any monster not just level 4- is still banned while monster reborn is only limited despite has similar effects.
Why is this card an UR and Powerful Rebirth a SR?

Because it's more searchable and activates immediately

Poweful rebirth is an SR from a mini box, what's the difference of being an UR or SR when you're on a minibox and you're only a 1 copy for reset.

Pretty sure this card is still used in the modern meta. Albeit for different reasons.

Its faster, it's easier to get cards onto the field for syncro plays.
SSA decks can utilize it to banish the special summoned monster to than revive it with full stats or you can use it on Abyss Soldier as the discard cost isn't negated(as it is required for it's effect to trigger) allowing you to set up floaters.
I have 3 copy this trash /facepalm
So basically it can and can’t stay on the field when the spell card is gone?

It's worded that way to make it clear that, unlike the ATK/DEF reduction and negation, it's not a continuously-applied effect of the Equip Spell itself.

So if the monster survives Living Fossil leaving the field for whatever reason (such as via Forbidden Lance), it will still be banished if it leaves the field. (It also means negating the effect of Living Fossil won't stop the banish either.)
Seems like a very useful card to bring synchro monsters asap on field.
wow spell card powerful rebirth

Yeah, other than being a Spell, this card has no real advantage over Powerful Rebirth.

In fact being an Equip Spell makes it arguably worse as it cannot be activated during opponent's turn.

Seriously, instead of this thing, we should have gotten Rekindling, considering the amount of 200 DEF FIRE monsters in the box.
It looks like dude that sang singing in the rain on 80s.
The card art is epic.
