I think with the skill Restart, when it says that "This Skill will not activate if your Deck does not contain 7 or more copies each of Spell and Trap cards" . I think it is saying that you just need to have at least 7 spell and/or trap cards, but they all have to be different spell and trap cards.

Restart used to be better than Balance, fast forward a few years, now Balance is the better skill XD

Seriously, Restart's nerf means you can only play 6 monsters if you want to keep your deck to 20 cards. That's dumb.

2021 will be Duel Links but without skill. All characters will be treated like vanilla monsters.

I have seen many opponents use this skill and not one single time were any cards of their discarded starting hand revealed. Not once. Why?

They changed it so now they skip their first draw phase instead if they use the skill.

So far I got the skill also for Yugi Muto, Tyranno Hassleberry, Akiza Izinski, Leo, Dark Signer Kalin Kessler, Arkana, Dr Vellian Crowler, Yubel, Sartorius Kumar, Jack Atlas and Officer Tetsu Trudge.
there could be more or all ledgandary duelists can use this skill!?

Honestly, they should have made Draw Sense Low Level, Restart, and Balance as skills that any character can get. Some kind of "generic skill anyone can use".

I feel that this being something you have to specifically pick for a character rather it being an innate part of the game is why more people like Hearthstone or MtG then Yugioh. Unlike in the other games, getting stuck with a dead hand means your screwed. Unless you have some way of drawing cards with whats in your hand, your done. Wish Konami would wise up and add it as an innate. Who cares if that's not in the actual card game, neither are half the other skills in the game.

I'd go as far as saying it should be in the real life game as well.

This was the only skill I didn't like it at all lol, I guess I'm one of the few who are really pleased about it being dead. (at least in competitive decks, because it's still viable in farming).

So salty that they nerfed this the way they did. Now there is pretty much no incentive to use this. Legit guarantees you a loss if you don't get an amazing hand. Konami don't understand how nerfing works, you aren't supposed to make these things 🔥, you are supposed to balance them you hacks.

I think skip your first draw phase is too much cost for this skill , maybe they should made it lowers the user life points instead?

best of the top 5 of the rank 4 in game right now?
Worst card of this archetype
Fun but easily brickable with bad draw or getting domed with Karma Cut
this kind of repeated event was a pain in the a.s.s. just create something new, fresh Konami.
