Default Dark Bribe

I know that Dark Bribe is quite a bad card. It gives your opponent a free card. But does it have some potential? It can negate a powerful limited card and can be used anytime.
Dark World decks +1 all the time so is it okay to run a Dark Bribe?
thanks for the help.

I don't really like it. Any time that someone has used Dark Bribe on me, I have been happy because my card got replaced.

It's not a bad card. If you negate something game breaking, such as Monster Reborn or Dark Hole, the extra draw still might not help them.

It's best for control/defensive decks.

The best deck Bribe ever ran in was of course Counter Fairies but since the falling out of that deck....yeah it's really bad to give your opponent free cards. But if the Solemn brigade were to ever go away...who knows? It may still have to compete even with cards like Magic Jammer and Magic Drain though.

It's not bad. It's just not great either.

Usually you don't negate normal things, only big and trouble things like Dark Hole, Heavy Storm, Monster Reborn...
But most of the cases Seven Tools of the Bandit (traps), Magic Drain (spell), Starlight Road and The Huge Revolution is Over (general destruction) are far better. Dark Bribe is more generic for the situations, but the drawback is not nice.

It's bad in general but it's good in Skill Drain decks like Dark Worlds because you set your hand most of the time for DDiTG and a Heavy Storm can eff up your day, also you want to protect Skill Drain because without face up monster effects most decks are powerless. It's ok to -1 protecting Skill Drain because chances are your opponent drew another monster which is useless against Grapha.

Dark Bribe's only use is for protecting key cards to your strategy, i.e. Skill Drain. If your opponent uses something like Heavy Storm, it would be beneficial for you to use Dark Bribe in this scenario, because they literally can't replace Storm and it protects a card that would otherwise cripple your strategy.

dark bribes +1 to the opponent can kill you, but having seven tools and losing to a Monster Reborn/Dark Hole or having Magic Drain and losing to a torrential/compulsary can also kill you just as often

you can run Dark Bribe perfectly fine so long as you run it smart, dont try to negate every single little thing the opponent does, save it for protecting your big swings for game or such, situations where it guarantees a result where you get much more out of it than your opponent

Dark bribe is good when it's protecting a card that makes your deck, like Necrovalley, or skill drain

Letting your opponent draw can bite you in the butt, but I think it's a fair trade off for the versatile negation.

1 bribe to negate a card then another bribe to negate the card they just drew?

You know, I'm usually happy when someone uses Dark Bribe on me for the same reason. But then I see what the card is. Half the time the card that was bribed was better than the card drawn.

Dark Bribe is a good card that you have to play smart with. Use it to negate your opponent's key cards, but not just any random spell or trap that comes at you.

I've always liked Bribe. It's a balanced card in my opinion. Counter traps are inherrently really powerful, so giving up a -1 balances out being able to negate any spell or trap.

It only fits in the right sort of deck though - Either highly control orientated decks, or more recently in Dark World where protecting Skill Drain is key.

Usually it is. But it doesn't matter to me because my card was still replaced. There is a good chance the card I just drew will be useful.

Dark Bribe my Heavy Storm? Okay, it's just hilarious when I draw into Mystical Space Typhoon. The best time to use Dark Bribe is the Battle Phase. Your Battle Phase. But overall, I just don't like the card. It seems legit but it really doesn't. It's a preference card to me so I won't outright say that the card is good or bad.

Might be useful in Appropriate Exodia decks. Negates your opponent's MST or HS in their attempt to get rid of Appropriate as well as getting some extra draws.

It's better than MST in OTK decks. If you don't understand why then your not with my time.

I think Dark Bribe is useful and not as bad as people say.

It's useful protecting a continual S/T like Skill Drain, Dimensional Fissure or something like that.

It's useful protecting against a powerful spell like Dark Hole, Monster Reborn, Mind Control etc.

It's useful if your going for game to stop your monster getting Bottomlessed/D-Prisoned/Magic Cylindered...

It's handy to side-deck against Trap-Heavy decks..

It can do things Starlight Road, THRiO, Seven Tools etc cannot do...
