Evaluation

RatingB

Pros

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

Cons

  • 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.

Tips

  • 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.

Deck

Dark World Deck

Rulings

  • 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.

Remember when this card is quite meta?

Me neither.

I like to discard Snoww to search Gates of the Dark World, banish Snoww for Gates' effect, then get her back when this card gets destroyed, piggybacking a search on top of Gates' extra draw next turn.

Why is that card not to purchase anymore with Yami Bakura at Lvl.30/40?

Been wanting this card desperately and funnily enough, got it while beating up lvl 10 Bakura for a mission after only a few tries. Wish everyone else the same luck who wants this guy.

You can use a Silent Swordsman Lv 6 deck to deal with Bakura's Man Eater Bug and lock his draws.

I already got 8 copies by quick farm with 5-6k assesments (+campaign bonus). Sometimes lower DA give better rewards compared to 8k.
