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.

You can bring back Exodia and win the game, Its broken. Konami please ban and bring back brother stratos - msonly132

Stupid card

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

One of the first spell cards ever created is also the best spell card ever created

I voted for Raigeki because it is so cool I love it

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

Hey! Trunade is better. - msonly132

This card is AWESOME!

Completely broken, and banned for a reason. Yes, there are more counters to it than Giant Trunade, however, with Giant Trunade the cards are only off the field for one turn. And while that can be enough for an OTK, if you fail to OTK (remember that hand traps exist) you've gone -1 for (probably) nothing.

4 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

5 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

What is better than 1 sword?
That's right, 3 swords... - msonly132

6 Ancient Rules

It lets you summon a level 5 or higher normal monster for FREE!

Too op, summon your mom with it

Just use double summon - msonly132

heeelll ye

7 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

Why did you vote for this instead of harpies feather duster or heavy storm? - Yugi10

MST negates. it counters everything on this list. How is it not number 1 - msonly132

8 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

I liked playing it

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

Want to see a dark hole? search blue waffle on google. - msonly132

10 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.

Wins on resolution in several decks. One of the few cards that can be considered better than Pot of Greed. Don't expect this card to be ever unbanned without a big nerf.

Pretty sure this would make burning abyss tier 0

Aborting the baby or keeping it... painful indeed. - msonly132

The Contenders

11 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

Dunno about this card, but ill smash any of the harpies and make them choke on my steaming hot raw *****. I would even smash the dragon... especially the dragon. - msonly132

12 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.

Remember the moments when your daddy inserts his thick raw club into your poo hole, and for 1 second, you reach enlightenment? That feeling is this pot. - msonly132

Someone here says he runs 55 Pot of Duality in his Exodia deck and that it nearly always wins...

You're only allowed to activate 1 Pot of Duality per turn.

I run 55 pots of duality in my exodia FTK deck, 99% win rate

You can not have more than 3 copies of any card in your deck, and you can only activate one pot duality per turn. - Yugi10

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

I also have an armory hidden... in my pants. Pocket Rocket. - msonly132

15 Smashing Ground

Its good to take out a wall to win the duel

Similar to Fissure and Hammer Shot. Good stuff.

HAHAAHA Smash - msonly132

16 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.

Dartz is a stupid name for a stupid character for a stupid anime. Why not name him Prickz or Hoebagz and be done with it. - msonly132

17 Book of Moon

This is the most versatile card of the whole game

Who reads books nowadays. - msonly132

Kinda useless

This is zah bests of all!

18 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

19 Supervise

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

I supervised a kid once. Got arrested, but totally worth it. Not sure if he can walk anymore. - msonly132

20 Chaos Greed

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

Lets just get two words and put them together.
Me first: careful disease - msonly132

21 Upstart Goblin

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

Card sucks. Why would you give your opponent life points? Might as well give him your car keys, social security number and a hand job along with it. And screw Doug, who is Doug. Doug is a dumb name, like Dartz. - msonly132

You want to give your opponent life points sO yOu CaN hAvE a 37 CaRd DeCk. The 1000 life points usually don't matter very much, and the extra consistency you get from having essentially 3 fewer cards in your deck is worth it. It is limited for a reason. - Yugi10

Doug said it should be higher

One of the few actual good cards on the list. Limited to one for a reason

22 Ojamuscle

Real talk, the only counter to Ojamuscle is the level 10 train engine.

Dzeeff said it himself. God card. Searchable by any deck, free plus 1, acts as a free Monster for an instant extra link. Wins in less than 5 turns. There's a reason this card has always been on the forbidden and limited list

Only thing stronger is Sparks.

Epic card foto every Obama lover

23 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..

24 That Wacky Magic!

Easily the best magic card ever created.

This card good!

Banish 5 spells, gain 1500 LP. It's really good!

That wacky magic! is the best card in the game because if you use it and banish 10 spells you can kill a blue Eyes White dragon and only 3 of them exist in the entier World so it's a great counter and has great card renewal - BannedEmeral

25 Double Spell

Use your opponents spells. - KilMii

I love this card

Yes! This card made it

26 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

27 De-spell

#2 card for sure, only outclassed by Sparks

It can destroy all these other cards - robbthy7

Better than mst

28 Spell Absorption

Awesome in a spell counter deck. - KilMii

I've healed about 4000 in most games

29 Poison Of The Old Man

Don't know why it isn't on the banned list yet. It's just either free healing or free damage. That's insane

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

EVeRyOnE kNoWs AbOuT iT aNd KnOwS iT Is NoT wOrTh It. Life points don't matter that much. You are losing 1 card just to boost your life points by 1200, or decrease your opponents life points by 800. Honestly it would be better to have any normal monster instead or this, at least normal monsters are not a -1 in card advantage. - Yugi10

Please Komoney ban dis brok op card

30 Graceful Charity

50% More drawing than Pot of Greed.
100% More discard than Foolish Burial.
This card is busted and rightfully on the banlist.

31 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.

Prohibition can not halt instant win cards, because win conditions are not effects. - Yugi10

Really good card lets you disable the effect of one card

Very good in all lockdown decks. Currently just outside of the meta. I suggest buying if top tier lockdown decks are to expensive

32 Limiter Removal

Should be number 3

This can make my ace card have 12000 ATK and it alredy has pircing.

33 Elimigate
34 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.

35 Saqlifice

Broken card for qliphort deck

36 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

37 Emergency Provisions
38 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

39 Final Countdown

You win after 20 turns BEAST

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

Why not just play cards to help you win before 20 turns? Duels don't usually last 20 turns. - Yugi10

40 Power Bond
41 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

42 Monster Gate

Infernoids are basically dead without this card. Other decks like it too.

43 Gravity Lash

Its really good

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 Shapesnatch

Super easy way to summon infinity, infinity negates every single spell and trap shapesnatch IS the best spell card in the game. - Cyres

The best boy he will snatch your shape

46 Nirvana High Paladin

Being a pendulum monster, this card is technically a spell, and a powerful one at that! - Temp1

47 Scapegoat

Four tokens to synchro or xyz summon plus some good defense

48 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.

49 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...

50 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
