  • Has an effect that could increase its own attack by 500.
  • It can get your removed from play monsters back to your hand.


  • Stats are low which makes it susceptible to attacks.
  • You have to discard a Fiend-Type monster in order to increase its attack.
  • The attack boost is gone at the End Phase.
  • It can only recycle banished cards when this card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard.
  • Can only recycle banished DARK monsters.


  • Used in a dark necrofear deck to send fiends to the graveyard, then recover monsters removed from play by dark necrofear.

Banish Cards

Dark Necrofear could be used to banish Fiend-Type monsters from your Graveyard to Special Summon it and Skull Lair could also remove from play monsters in your Graveyard to destroy a monster in the field. On the other hand, Archfiend Empress could protect DARK Fiend-Type monsters from getting destroyed by banishing DARK Fiend-Type monsters in the Graveyard. When Trance Archfiend got destroyed, you could get those banished monsters back to your hand.


  • Discarding 1 card from your hand is not a cost but an effect.
  • The effect sending 1 banised Dark monster back to your hand can be activated during damage step.

Perfect with skull lair. Definitely needs card draw in deck though.
Oh God I need 2 more of these, they synergize so well with Dark Necrofear.
yami bakura event needs to be done again so I get a couple of these
This card is better than voltanis (which should be rated 7 instead of 8). Should be 7.5 at least for 2k fiend that supports dark Necrofear and hopefully dark world one day
This card is freaking hard to get
This card banishes from the deck or hand? This could be useful to get Necrofear soon

Pretty sure the first part is discarding from your hand, and when it dies you get back one DARK monster that was removed from play.

It's so you can discard to get Fiends from your hand into the graveyard for summoning Necrofear. Then Necrofear banishes them, and this card brings one back.
