Best Yugioh Cards Ever Released


The Top Ten

1 Slifer the Sky Dragon

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

It is very cool looking in my opinion and the fact that it gets a thousand attack every time you draw a card that is amazing but there is a downfall to the point where if you were to draw a card and place it you wouldn't gain anything

It's the best card ever but it has a lot of weaknesses.

I am going to get all of the egyptian God cards soon

2 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

Its cooler than slifer why isn't it number 1

3 Obelisk the Tormentor

It is OK because I beat a friend who used it in a duel

In his current print obelisk is definitely the best of the gods, but he's still nowhere near the best.

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!

Mint really good card

4 Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord

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

What is this. I don't know. I don't like it. Let's leave, Charizard.

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.

5 Blue Eyes White Dragon

First off this card is a normal monster so the no effect means that it should definitely not be on this list. Second off three thousand atk is good but there are monsters with way more atk than that that also have effects. You should reconsider your decision

A beast card

Sing his praises

SLifer the sky dragon is way better

V 53 Comments
6 Exodia the Forbidden One

The best card ever

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

Best 100%

V 35 Comments
7 Swords of Revealing Light

Awesome card

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

it sucks

But then... Dust Tornado - fwed

V 2 Comments
8 Dark Magician

Useless useless and especially useless

Can Someone tell me why on earth is this trash card in the top 10 like seriously this card is garbage


Dark Magician is a great card that requires strategy to use effectively.

V 51 Comments
9 Storming Mirror Force

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

This card is awesome any sends back opponents attack to itself

10 5 Headed Dragon

Trash card. Traps/effects will wreck this.

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

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

6 Headed Dragon is better

V 59 Comments

The Contenders

11 Monster Reborn

Why is this card all the way down here?

I got a question why isn't this card at least in the top 5

Forget the divine cards do they let your monster have second chance no


V 45 Comments
12 Quaking Mirror Force

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

Not good, battle traps are slow and garbage.

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

13 Exodia

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

Strongest card in the game

I think this because auto win.

Should be number 1 automatic win

V 33 Comments
14 Pot Of Duality

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


15 Mirror Force

Way too slow, battle traps aren't good.

Hilarios to watch my opponents face when I play it!


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

V 18 Comments
16 Chaos Emperor Dragon: Envoy of the End

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


Finally a list that has this card. Why is it 16 though? - fwed

Um this card should be top 2 honestly.

V 23 Comments
17 Dark Bribe

It's worse than Jinzo. How?

Not even close to being the best

18 Jinzo

Jinzo is so awesome even in the anime

Jinzo by far my favorite chatraavter ever! 1

The most annoying card ever man he is good.

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.

V 5 Comments
19 Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning

Finally decent cards - Sthenelos

All arounn good

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 - fwed

Better than blue eyes.

V 40 Comments
20 Dragon Master Knight

This card shouldn't be in the top ten, it shouldn't even be in the top 100.

This card is very strong I have one and I have never lost I also have 2 egyptian god cards.

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

It is master of dragon soldier. - WorldPuncher47592834

V 22 Comments
21 Bottomless Trap Hole

Why is this higher than Trap Hole? - fwed

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

So op should at least be 19

One of the best traps

V 1 Comment
22 Raging Flame Sprite

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

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

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

23 Kuriboh

Karoboh is the true go of yugioh

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

Best card in the univers

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

V 4 Comments
24 Fire Hand

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

25 Malefic Truth Dragon

I have him

Trash, can be removed with MST. 5000 attack doesn't make a card good.

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.

V 6 Comments
26 Revival Jam

Not good

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

27 Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon

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!

I don't understand how Blue-Eyes White a Dragon is a higher rank that Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon! He has 5,000 attack and Blue-Eyes White has 3,000? What the heck?

V 12 Comments
28 Blue Eyes Shining Dragon

This is awesome

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

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!

29 Painful Choice

This card is broken - Sthenelos

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. - Yugi10

30 Solemn Judgement

Pretty decent, glad it’s unlimited now - Sthenelos

31 Graceful Charity

Read the card and you'll understand

32 Ice Hand
33 Black Luster Soldier Black Luster Soldier

This card is already at 19 why is there another one? - fwed

This card isn't at the very top?

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.

34 Yata-Garasu

It is banned therefore it is good

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

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.

35 Soul Charge Soul Charge

Fantastic card - Sthenelos

36 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?

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

He is the card of my favourite owner I ain't really good at this card game but I still like it more than ayny other card game

37 The Winged Dragon of Ra Sphere Mode

Bakugan References

It clears the U-link

this is op

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

V 3 Comments
38 Firewall Dragon Firewall Dragon

Pretty broken - Sthenelos

Very overpowered card, allows for many degenerate loops and combos leading to extra links, ftks, or lock downs. - Yugi10

39 Exodius the Forbidden Lord

Coolest card

40 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 :(

41 Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo

Its da best u can win a match wit it

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

42 Solemn Warning

Good - Sthenelos


43 Helpoemer
44 Dark Hole

I have this and who cares if it's banned, I don't do competitive anyway. - fwed

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

45 Stardust Dragon

In my mined stardust is one of the best cards because you can tune it and get shooting star dragon

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).

I don't understand what kind of losers inhabit this forum, because this card is really good, far better then a weak blue eyes.

46 United We Stand

This card is the worst it sucks belief it is so sucky.

united we stand is truly the best eqip ever!

A truly overpowered card.

I remember getting this. I was unbeatable - awesomenessdefined

47 Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon

True, galaxy eyes is one of the best.

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

This card is completely OP

This is one dope card

V 5 Comments
48 Man-Eater Bug

Best card ever

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


49 Master of Oz


Highest attack lv in English game
