Best Yugioh Spell Cards


The Top Ten

1 Monster Reborn

Monster reborn wouldn't be banned if it just added send top card to grave or discard card

I have this and never noticed its power. I don't get why call of the haunted isn't number 2.

My favorite card and I wish it wasn't banned from tournaments.

I don't care I use it

2 Raigeki

Destroys all you opponent's monsters for no cost. Banned for a good reason.

Raigeki is a card of destruction with its ability of destroying all your opponents monsters that with raigeki in your deck you could be indestructible

This card is op and I love it

Kill um all kill um all

3 Heavy Storm

If you have luck you can activate it when you don't have any spells or traps so you can destroy only opponent spells and traps. - KilMii

This card is AWESOME!

4 Swords of Revealing Light

This card is good when the enemy is overpowering you

One of the best stalls for time and let's you add to your field. You could xyz summon or synchro summon during those three turns which is really op. But it gets destroyed easily

One of the best cards

Best card if u need to buy some time or get exodia

6 Mystical Space Typhoon

I love this card

Destroy 1 spell card, not the best (beaten by nightbeam, etc.) but still very good and costs nothing

7 Change of Heart

Let's you take control of your opponents monster

Multi function like for Tribute Summon ( like= Soul Exchange ), and Open the way to Direct Attack

Why yugioh WHY is this banned

Takes any monster from opponent making them almost defenceless!

8 Pot of Duality

Might as well just have 3 of these in your deck. Doing that basically gives you a chance to choose your next draw card out of the top 3, instead of having it random.

How can you not like it choose 3 cards and put one in your hand

9 Dark Hole

Yeah gods can't be killed by dark hole and if I'm correct only a light monster can kill the five headed dragon

I have it, saved me from Winged dragon and Obelisk. Boom. Two fried Egyptian God Cards, anyone?

I have it it kills my friends Obelisk and Five headed

You can't destroy god cards with spell cards dumbass!

10 Harpie`s Feather Duster

Destroys your opponent spells and traps which is devastating against trap based decks. - KilMii

Its basic but good - jjsimpson

Currently on the banned list

Gryphon's feather duster even batter

The Contenders

11 Painful Choice

You choose 5 cards in your deck, your opponent choose one of these that you put into your hand, and you discard the other 4. It lets you win on the first turn by sending the right cards in the discard pile. Banned for a good reason.

12 Pot of Greed

I have this card and the pot of durability my deck is over 300 bucks

Yes it is an op spell card and what about magic cards I have 1 and I can deal 600 damage to my opponent and magic cards are old spell cards


Hands down the best spell. It is a no cost +1. Banned for good reason.

13 Snatch Steal

I hate this card no wonder It's on the ban cards list I hated when my monsters got stolen from me when I played with my twin...

Steal 1 monster for free and tribute, Xyz, or Synchro Summon with it, so your opponent doesn't gain the 1000 Life Points in his Standby Phase.

14 Hidden Armory

Let's you destroy your own monster then you get to destroy your opponents monster hide this trap under a mister and when it is attacked activates it

15 Seal of Orichalcos

Beast Card. Every one of your monsters gains 500 ATK every turn it is on the field (it is a continuous Spell Card). Cannot be destroyed once per turn. The only drawback is you have to destroy every Special Summoned monster you have on the field. But is still the best UNLIMITED spell card.

Cheapes card ever made

Dartz is the best.

16 Smashing Ground

Its good to take out a wall to win the duel

Similar to Fissure and Hammer Shot. Good stuff.

17 Serial Spell

Why is serial spell a spell with no effect and description.

Your opponent loses half their life points when this card is activated.

this is op

18 Book of Moon

This is the most versatile card of the whole game

Kinda useless

This is zah bests of all!

19 Supervise

It makes gemini monsters effect monsters that's awesome! - KilMii

20 Chaos Greed

Can't beat pot of greed but still good card in a deck that focuses on banishing everything from everywhere. - KilMii

21 United We Stand

You can get so much power with this card, so getting it

How is this not in the top 10?
800 atk and def for each face up monster..

22 Double Spell

Use your opponents spells. - KilMii

I love this card

Yes! This card made it

23 Spell Absorption

Awesome in a spell counter deck. - KilMii

I've healed about 4000 in most games

24 Mirror Force

Obviously any experienced player would say this is the best of cards all time should be 1st at all costs

Whats not to love kill all your opponents monsters for no cost.

This is a trap not a spell

Should be number 2

25 Limiter Removal

Should be number 3

26 Elimigate
27 Blazing Mirror Force

Blazing mirror force is the original with an added kick. sure, you do get damaged yourself, but clearing their field and potentially attacking directly next turn makes it worth its cost

Not the most usefull of the mirror forces, but is a great card if your enemy has short Life Points, you get the damage too, that's true, but is funny.

28 Power Bond
29 Enemy Controller

So op can attack your opponent with there own monster so much better then mind control

Take control of an opponent monster for only one card.

Use it with enchanted javelin

My friend really wants this and I have it

30 Poison Of The Old Man

So op. Instant 1200 life points, no cost. Or instant loss of 800 for your opponent. Surprised that barely anyone knows this. - Blueyesranger

31 Emergency Provisions
32 Creature Swap

To awesome to miss maybe gonna be banned

Trade control of monsters! Great for effect monster decks with weak stats. You flip summon your only monster on the field (man-eater bug! ) to take out the weaker of your opponents 2 monsters, and then play Creature Swap, forcing them to trade their epic high level monster with your lowly "already flipped- man-eater bug. Magic.

33 Foolish Burial

Great if you have a card that needs to be special summoned from graveyard

It's limited to 1 card in deck though

34 Gravity Lash

Its really good

35 Swords at Dawn

It a great rare card

36 Scapegoat

Four tokens to synchro or xyz summon plus some good defense

37 One Day of Peace

A card that basically says "at the cost of giving your opponent a free card, it is virtually impossible for you to lose next turn, oh yeah and draw a card while you're at it". Was fun in Exodia decks at 3, but definitely deserved to get hit.

I love this card because it gives both you and your apponent a chance to win it's fair...

38 Final Countdown

You win after 20 turns BEAST

After 20 turns u win the duel, doesn't get much better than that

39 Mask of Restrict

Prevents tributation of any kind keeping more powerful monsters from being summoned.

.. Unless someone has a card capable of wiping out magic & trap cars alike Mask of Restrict & Prohibition are game killers for players with uber powerful monsters. Since most players with strong cards of that nature build their deck around those cards it's unlikely they would be carrying such a card.

Isn't this a trap card? - trainerd6

40 Saqlifice

Broken card for qliphort deck

41 Shield Spear

Gives you 200atc and definitely points

42 Divine Warning

Stops everything from happening to yourself!

43 Monster Gate
44 Grinning Grave Virus

Lets you tribute an atk monster with 3000 or less atk, destroy cards in your opponents hand+deck equall to the atk of that monster divided by 500 and look at your opponents hand for 3 turns if the monster tributed has 2000 or more atk!
Great card for ANY deck!

45 Final Destiny

Your opponent is about to destroy you with Dragon Master Knight (5000 ATK/5000 definitely), Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon (4500 ATK/3800 definitely), and 2 Raviel, Lord of Phantasms (4000 ATK/4000 definitely) and they have 5 Traps set and you have 4 traps set that suck and you have no monsters on your side of the field and they have no cards in their hand while you have 6 cards. You discard 5 cards from your hand to activate this card and watch your opponent cry in pain.

46 Fusion Gate
47 Pot of Avarice

5 cards from your graveyard back into your deck! And you can draw two as well! Class card a real game changer

Best yugioh spell card

48 Prohibition

Prohibition (a long with Mask of Restrict) is one of only two cards that has the ability to stop and/or prevent the summoning of even the most powerful monsters. Cards such as Exodia (if played assembled) or the "God" cards are immune to the effects of spell & traps such as Final Destiny. Prohibition can halt "instant win" cards. The great thing about a card like Prohibition is that it's most lethal against decks with super powerful monsters; most of which are less likely to have cards to counter this as the decks are built around the powerful monsters.

Really good card lets you disable the effect of one card

49 Different Dimension Capsule

Everything you want you can get it.

50 Upstart Goblin

Great card to thin you're deck down to 37 cards.
