Default dark illusion

what makes this card great and what makes it not worth playing?

Dark Illusion
Quote:
Negate the activation of a Spell Card, Trap Card, or Effect Monster's effect that targets a face-up DARK monster, and destroy that card.

The fact the monster needs to be targeted?
There are better forms of negation. It's neat on paper, which is why I tried it, but in the end it leaves a lot to be desired.

[No, its good. If only it prevented monsters from being destroyed also, though. Good in Infernities I suppose... Not many other decks with a DARK boss that needs protecting]

You don't need 3 Lances Jesse...Just learn to play your deck better...Or make it better in general stop running crap. Lance are give or take...8 bucks each if your not getting scammed so I dunno where you're getting a 75 for 3 price tag from.

That cards not very good, it will get popped so often before it gets used, too situational.

Effect Veiler makes it worth playing...triple MST and Heavy doesn't.

I side-deck it.

And I spend it wisely my friend. Not wasting it all on a card game, which is why I play old decks.

You want to spend money on something redonculous?

Get into Heroscape.

Crack is cheaper. But less enjoyable.

It's cheaper than Safe Zone. Also almost every time I play Safe Zone they have the MST. Dark Illusion can stop Linde into Abysspike even after damage calc.

However once Master Key Beetle is out Safe Zone becomes broke.

[Uh... "Safe Zone" can't negate cards that target, so that's a key difference.]

I use 2 in the main but I also use dark monsters that win me games. I can use them w/ satisfactory results, but most will use other cards outside of Dark Illusion.

Funnily enough, this could be a decent side AGAINST a Dark deck if they come out with a self targeting galore archetype.

Inb4 people saying that Grapha targets the monster it returns to hand. Also, mirror negates.

stops blaster/infantry from killing ophion. Also helps in the mirror when they target with bahamut. They cant even pandemic because of the s3 nature of illusion. Overall a really strong card

Dark Illusion might be good in this format, considering Dragons target with everything.

It can protect you from:

BigEye, Dragossac, Blaster
Infantry, Gungir
High Pristess
FF Bear

Electric Virus is the only reason to use this card over any other protection card.

I'm guessing something along the lines of "Sounds great on paper, but terrible in practice."
