Best Yugioh Cards Ever Released

The Top Ten

Slifer the Sky Dragon

It gains 1000 attack for every card in your hand. how could it get any better?

If you play with infinite hand then can have the most attack in a game will also ignore card effects

Just OP it can gain like 6000 attack easily and takes away 2000 attack from your opponents monster. You see? OP.

I have the top 3 on this list and all of them look really cool and are really powerful!

Winged Dragon of Ra

It is the coolest card other that slifer the sky dragon and creator of light it a very cool card I have and use it all the time.

I have the Winged Dragon Of Ra, the only problem is that it's so strong that you can't use it in a duel but sometimes with my friends we make our rules where the only difference is that divine cards are allowed. Get the card!

You absolutely can use it in a duel, there are just certain copies that can't be for some reason - dubsinthetubs

I am commenting to dispel rumors and falsehoods about Super Mega Ultra Chicken (The Winged Dragon of Ra).

Ra, as well as the other god cards, are tournament legal. They've been tournament legal for quite a while now. The rule is, you have to have the tournament legal versions of the cards.

Ra cannot be Special Summoned. At all. Ever. Under any circumstance.

The Winged Dragon's effect to pay Life Points in exchange for giving it attack points will only activate on Ra's Summon. You cannot use this effect at any point after you have Summoned it. Also, you have to pay all but 100 Life Points if you use that effect. This leaves you open to any and all burn cards, including the still somewhat popular Gagaga Cowboy, knocking you out of the game.

The pay 1000 to destroy a card effect is useful, but considering you would have wasted so many cards to play Ra, it defeats the usefulness.

Ra is a card to use if you want to have fun. It is not a good card, though. ...more

Lol this card is absolutely terrible. The anime version is super good, but the real life version? It sucks. - Vaing1955

It's really good maybe even OP but at a cost of LP but still, its effects are OP.

Obelisk the Tormentor

if it did the same thing in the anime it would have infinite attack points

This is the best card ever. I have two of them and one of them has variant art.

By sacrificing 2 monsters on the field, you can wipe out their entire field of monsters, plus 4000 points of damage inflicted on your opponent! You just can't beat that!

Safe from card effects and has awesome attack. The other god cards can get destroyed by a spell or trap, but obelisk can't.

Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord

Just amazing effect, would always control high power and if you have 5 exodia pieces in your deck then this cards has just won for u, as well I have 5 pieces of exodia and I'm planning on buying this off ebay as well.

Wow this card is awesone my friends are shock I have it but I have lots of yugi cards

I feel like this guy is very powerful, but I haven't played YuGiOh yet.

its powerful and has a great effect

Blue Eyes White Dragon

Blue Eyes White Dragon is NOT GOOD. I do not know why everyone gets so FREAKING exited when they here 'Blue Eyes White Dragon'. Anyway Slifer the Sky Dragon is the best card and would kick Blue Eyes's ass. Sorry but ya gotta have some intensity.

Not a bad card when combined with mirror force yet still can be beat with many cards as well as itself I have three blue eyes white dragons in one of my many decks and I can tell you all that when used correctly, power can kill.

Awesome card and a Kiaba fan must have. combine 3 of them to make ultimate dragon wich is even more overpowered.

In my opinion, one of the coolest looking cards! It’s also pretty powerful.

Exodia the Forbidden One

You summon him ,you win! What could possibly be better than that! (other than slifer)

Fairly decent card it could be better saying that you can't summon all five at once and I payed 500 dollars to buy two of them and it can come in clutch saying that you have the swords of revealing light meaning free card placement without getting attacked its just what I think

I have this card but it is t really a good way to play the game you need to be strategic on every move you take

It just wins you the game when you get all the pieces it should be second its defense and attack might be lack luster but it can just win you the game

Swords of Revealing Light

Piss off your opponents and stops attacking happening from their side.

Swords of revealing light doesn't let your opponent attack, and if you have thousand eyes strict, it will be op, as they can't attack for the whole game

Easily gotten rid of, not worth playing in any good deck.

But then... Dust Tornado

Dark Magician

Gotta love this card! It's been around ever since the game started! This card is a classic!

People really underestimate this card, it’s cool looking and honestly pretty powerful.

H ow is this card not in the top ten. This card is an original and is simple to summon. It has good attack and defense and all around it is the best.

This card in a word is radical. Only thing is since yugioh is evolving, monsters are being created that are too powerful. Though easy to summon, dark magicians power is slowly seeping away because of newer more powerful monsters

Storming Mirror Force

This card is awesome any sends back opponents attack to itself

Battle traps are too slow, don't play this card.

Great card!

Monster Reborn

Brings Back A Monster From Either Player's Graveyard What Else Do I Have To Say

I have defeated one the best duelist in the state with this card and this card should be in every deck.

Because you can't get much better than practically a free monster from either graveyard, when the graveyard is such a big part of the metagame these days its no wonder this card is banned.

So epic! I can bring back any card (not dystopia the despondent) so also bad

The Contenders

5 Headed Dragon

Just OP only one thing though, it's VERY hard to summon. Then once you have summoned it they just need to nerf it.

It almost impossible to beat the 5 Headed Dragon in battle plus if you use future fusion and dragon's mirror you can instantly summon the 5 Headed Dragon and another one two turns later even if you don't use the future fusion you can use monsters like montage dragon to send dragons to the graveyard to use the dragon's mirror later it and Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon to make a exceptional dragons deck

While hard to summon unless running dragon's mirror or future fusion, once it's out on the field it's literally untouchable. Plus, Summoner of Illusions can special summon it once flip summoned, and then play Monster reborn at your next turn to summon it for another go

It should be number 1 because it can only be destroyed by light monsters

You do realize Spells and Traps exist and are played in Yugioh right? - Sthenelos

Quaking Mirror Force

Not good, battle traps are slow and garbage.

Avoids destruction abilities and reduces your opponents usable zones. Even better when used with Ghostricks

There is a reason this card has had it's effect changed so many times. Using this card with yata garasu was the bane of all yugioh players existence. It made you quit or die so slowly it was depressing

Well now Link monsters and Super Polymerization are a thing so this card is useless now - Sthenelos

I got this card


best card in the game no doubt. How can you beat a card that wins the game when it gets summoned

have it in your hand you win awesome dude

There are more instant win cards but this is the only one on the list and its really good so yeah

It's the greatest cards ever, it can giveu an automatic win.,
Unlike horakhty, you need to banish the 3 egyptian gods,
But you just need to draw all 5 forbidden one cards and assemble it in your hand to win the duel

Pot Of Duality

This is a good card to have for any deck, beefy or not. This can get cards into your hand and searches for others very well.

I love this card it allows you to excavate the top 3 cards of your deck then choose 1 and put it in your hand and if you use it in a dark magician deck after dark magical circle you know what your going to get or if you should just wait till you have a better draw

Awesome card help me a ton.


Mirror Force

Three copies and mirror force launcher I wreck everyone I face.

It activates just when a monster attacks and its good when an opponent has summoned a lot of monsters. The card helped me when my opponent summoned a truly powerful monster... Machina force. That would be another powerful card too

This card is definitely the best trap card and it should definitely be in the top 5. Its effect is when your opponent attacks, destroy or your opponents attacking monsters leaving your opponents field wide open.

Destroys all monsters when attacks directly, you just won if you have something decent in your hand then there dead

Chaos Emperor Dragon: Envoy of the End

Pre Errata, you set up your graveyard and summon a bunch of floaters, then use it and get a bunch of resources back.

All other cards on the list suck. They where obviously voted for by people who have no clue how to play yugioh.

Ask any high level competitor what the most powerful card in the game is. This will be the answer 9 times out of 10. It is disgustingly easy to summon, potentially game winning immediately, and the stats are strong. The card used to be even stronger as well, when players could declare priority on spell speed 1 activated (ignition) monster effects immediately after summoning them. No other single card has the same potential to simply end the game upon being summoned, and this one should never again see the light of day in its original form.

I cannot believe this card is not in the top 5, it's super easy to summon and it's effect literally makes it easy to cause huge damage and get close to winning the game, like the other person said, the people commenting on here obviously don't know how to compete, if they did this card would be a top favorite!


One of the best cards ever released. 2400 attack/1 sacrifice for its time was amazing, and still is. Negating any pre-existing Traps or Traps to come. Match him alongside Black Luster Soldier ~ Envoy of the Beginning, and it's end game for your opponent.

The most annoying card ever man he is good.

Jinzo is so awesome even in the anime

Special ability is incredible

Dark Bribe

Not even close to being the best

It's worse than Jinzo. How?

Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning

This card puts a great spin on the hard to play ritual version. With the best effect in the game how can I not love it?

This tough dude is a mini blue eyes white dragon with extra powers and he's easier to summon. Totally love having him on my side.

Black luster soldier is the coolest warrior in the yugioh series and he's so cool I hope there will be new cards and action figures of him with better prices and it's so cool when he uses his sword and he would be the leader of the warriors of yugioh

My friends hate me when I use this card and I got an entire 20 OP cards in Taiwan (including this) just by doing one of those road by games. It's in Chinese though but I can read it so MEH

Bottomless Trap Hole

I would surrender my mum to the Chaos Emperor Dragon: Envoy of the End just to look at this card

Good card, really good card. Stops all strong cards.

Why is this higher than Trap Hole?

great for tournaments

Dragon Master Knight

5000 attack if that's not good I don't know what is

Dragon master knight is one of the only cards that can beat 5 headed dragon. Because it gains 500 at for each dragon played

The Dragon Master Knight is really good in attack and defense. But is really hard to summon (for example you have to use Black Luster Soldier which is a ritual and use the spell Black Luster Ritual and Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon which uses Blue Eyes White Dragon times 3 and not only do you have to use all those cards to summon it you have to summon the Blue Eyes White Dragon with 2 monsters cause it is level 8 so it takes about 11 cards just to summon Dragon Master Knight

Only card that can easily take down 5 headed dragon

Raging Flame Sprite

Attack directly when it does plus 1000 in 4 turns can be 4100 attack

Drill barnacle is better. It has the exact same effect but starts out with 300 attack rather than 100

Can build up to a really high attack level and direct damage!


Very good with multiply and detonate, you can destroy your opponents deck with just a few cards

It’s kuriboh, of course it’s goo. Although there are a few other kuriboh variants that are better, the original is still good.

Discard it and you can not take damage... This if fun to use when your opponent thinks it's game

It is the best card ever. Why is it not #1?!?!?!?

Fire Hand

Fire Hand always keeps a monster on your field (If u have ice hand) AND destroys a monster! TOO OP!

Malefic Truth Dragon

Best card I mean seriously destroy a silly malefic and then boom 5k attack and defense what more do you want

Maybe removal effects, a better summoning condition, protection, a way to search it. I don't know, just things that ACTUALLY good cards have - Sthenelos

When this card destroys one monster, which it will, all monsters your opponent controls go poof.

It should be 5th but still it's the best I have

Yep, you lost once this beast comes out

Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon

He's so Overpowered all you need is 3 Blue-eyes white dragons and Polymerization to summon and has 4500 atk and 300 def. I've never lost with him on the field.

Absolutely terrible, what kind of idiot would actually think this card is good. It requires you to play a bricky spell card and makes you go -3 in card advantage in order to bring out a monster with no effect.

Blue eyes is legendary there is only three in the world
And very powerful

Actually there are 4 in the Anime. In real life there are thousands - Sthenelos

It's so cool there is hardly any 3 headed dragons and also he looks awesome and powerful if only there was a RED EYES ULTIMATE DRAGON THAT WOULD BE BEAST!

Revival Jam

Better with the card that changes the attack target to it though

Not good

Painful Choice

Sending any 4/5 Cards from your deck to the graveyard with 1 card is nuts. Even foolish burial is great, and it doesn't even do 25% of what this card does. Possibly the best card ever created, and a must play in almost every deck.

Send a crap ton of cards to the graveyard. Easily get off a load of effects.

Definitely one of, if not the best, card of all time. It lets you send a whopping 4 cards from your deck to the graveyard, 4 times as many as foolish burial, which on the banlist for how versatile and potentially powerful it is, and it one of the 5 cards you select goes to your hand too! If you were playing lightsworns, you could choose three copies of wulf, lightsworn beast, one copy of lost wind, and 1 copy of minerva, lightsworn maiden, and if they choose on of the wulfs, you would get to special summon 2 2100 attack monsters (because of there effect one they are sent from the deck to the graveyard), minerva's effect would send the top card of your deck to the graveyard, and when you opponent summoned a monster from the extra deck, lost world could set itself back on the field.

This card is broken

Blue Eyes Shining Dragon

I have a deck completely centered around this guy. If everything works out, he ends up with above 7000 attack points, plus he is then unaffected by effects, spells, and traps. Best effect ever.

By far the best card in the game!
Traps and Spells don't effect it and it gains an extra 300 ATK points for every dragon in the graveyard. This card is awesome!

Really really really bad. Brick in every hand unless you get incredible luck.

Come one guys gains 300 attack for each dragon that goes in the graveyard and cannot be effected by spells traps and monster effects

Graceful Charity

Draw 3 to discard 2 means you make you hand way more consistent, while setting up your graveyard and activating tons of graveyard effects. One of the cards which might be the best of all of them.

Literally pot of greed but better; if it wasn’t banned, the dark world decks would be the best archetype in the game.

Read the card and you'll understand

I have it in my collection. Good card.

Solemn Judgement

Negating a key component in your opponents strategy is crucial in winning some duels.

Two words: rage quit.

Pretty decent, glad it’s unlimited now

Ice Hand
Black Luster Soldier

Very confused at why this card is not in the top 100 at the very least! Can attack twice or remove a monster from play! All you need to do is equip it with ribbon of rebirth and something to bump up its attack points and its already game over.

This card was banned for a reason, draw this card on your first turn with Graceful Charity and you can most likely have yourself a first turn kill.

That is black luster soldier - envoy of the beginning

I got wrecked by it in a duel. Yet I have an OP deck. Why?

Soul Charge

Summoning your whole field full from the graveyard is just a joke. This card is just stupid and a should've never been created in the first place. Basicly an instant win every time it goes off.

Special summon up to 5 monster from the graveyard only at a cost of 1000 lp per monster, insanely op, can't ever be unbanned without a serious change in the meta.

Isn't it banned for being to OP

One word two letters: op.


It's perma-banned for a reason... Never letting your opponent draw ever again is a pretty overpowered ability

It is banned therefore it is good

Not perma-banned, first of all. We're at a state in the Meta where Yata returning will have absolutely no impact on the game. It is likely to come back when Spirits get new support.
It has a powerful effect, but nearly non-existent ATK power. It was only ever good because of Yata-lock, but 2 of the cards needed are banned.

The Winged Dragon of Ra Sphere Mode

Bakugan References

Can be good can be bad u need a nother card two use it

tribute 3 monsters on your opponent's side of the field

What the hell is this?

Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon

No way I have uncountable Toon Dragons and all you have to do is destroy Toon World and BAM! By-By Toon Dragon. See what I mean?

Just stop them from destroying toon world with number card

Good twist on blue eyes

Blue eyes plus direct attack for 500 lp megamorph can help too since you nee d to sacrafice at least 1500 lp for first attack which can end the game easily

Firewall Dragon

It's second effect allows the player to special summona monsters any time from your hand. Combining it with recourse cards like A Assault Core or black ptera, this card generates an unlimited number of monsters. Possibly the best monster of all time.

Part of many FTK combos. I'm upset cause it's the anime protagonist's main card, but it can't ever come back with the same effect

Very overpowered card, allows for many degenerate loops and combos leading to extra links, ftks, or lock downs.

Pretty broken

Exodius the Forbidden Lord

Coolest card


Vennominaga the Deity of Poisonous Snakes

Quite Good, all you have to do is destroy 3 of your opponents monsters by battle using this card and ta-the You win!

This card is so cool but I don't have any reptile monster to help it so its basically useless to me :(

Solemn Warning

I may not have this but my cousin beats me every time with it. (excluding two duels)

Probably one of the best trap cards, because it can cancel anything your opponent does. Who cares about the life points if you already know you’re gonna win?

Negate a summon or effect, what else do I have to say


Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo

I love the "Gimmick Puppet" cards, but Leo is very bad. Leo will never stay 3 rounds on the field without spell and traps for protection.

Umm tik tok your times running out! Opps looks like I won.

Its da best u can win a match wit it

Dark Hole

Destroy all monsters on the field. Can trigger your effects. Or just wipe your opponents field

It is awesome but the only problem is that it is a banned card so I can't use it in a championship, but you could use it when you are playing with your friends which is ok but I think that it shouldn't be in the banned list. But other than that you can typically use it to wipe out all cards for your opponent if you have no cards and he has a ton!

I especially value this card, because the power of gravity is so strong! Additionally I like the artwork of this card and hence it should be even better than place 22.

Very good cars. I have the spectacular edition one with the ultra rare golden border. Defiantly a great card to have in your deck. It deserve like 15

Stardust Dragon

it is op because it can be used to summon shooting stardust dragon

Stop a destruction effect, and if you fail it's brought back, made even more powerful by starlight road

You can tribute it from your hand to stop your opponents monster effects, then it destroys your opponents monster, and can be summoned from the graveyard at the end phase, and you can also summon a stardust dragon from your graveyard when it is destroyed

Why isn't this card in the top ten. You can tribute this card to negate any effect and then summon it bak on the field in the end phase, it also has 2500 attack and 2000 definitely (as good as dark magician).

Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon

This card is completely OP

True, galaxy eyes is one of the best.

Galaxy-Eyes isn't at the top? Clearly this is a broken list.

This is one dope card

Man-Eater Bug

It’s okay but I prefer the spellcastster old vindictive magician or shaddoll squamata.

This card is almost too powerful because ANY monster can attack and it would be destroyed.

Use to kill opponents who think there gonna win

Best card ever

Master of Oz

Highest attack lv in English game

Looks like it has a boner lol



United We Stand

When I started dueling I thought this is probably just another crap card but when I actually started USING spell and trap cards I was like oh my god this is so op and I have used it ever since.

united we stand is truly the best eqip ever!

A truly overpowered card.

I remember getting this. I was unbeatable

Performapal Monkeyboard

Hey a Pepe card
