I really don't like the fact that this is a -1 for you, as you have to use this card and a discard just to reclaim a Trap. You can only activate this in response to a Trap you activated, and your opponent probably won't negate this, which is good for you. This might (might mind you) be decent if you use it late game, if you have the discard for a Mirror Force, Sakuretsu Armor, Solemn Judgement, or something useful, but use Mask of Darkness to get your card back if you need it that badly.

Ratings:

1.5/5 Not completely useless, but not worth using.

Art: 3.5/5 At least the picture is cool.

This card is complete ASS, and I'll tell you a few reasons why.

*It has a cost, where Mask of Darkness can revive a trap and is free.

*You have to directly chain this to the Trap in question, so if your opponent has any responses, you're screwed.

*Trap revival is flawed in and of itself -- if your opponent knows it's coming, they usually work around it. Chainable Traps are another story, but we lost our best one to the Forbidden List (Ring of Destruction) the last go-around.

Even burn decks shouldn't be playing this.

1/5 all formats.

Don't let the wording on this card fool you! When I first saw it, I thought that whenever the selected trap was sent to the graveyard, as in free discards and reuse of a card as powerful as say Mirror Force. Sadly it was not to be, and it's effect will only activate once. The fact that the surprise of what you get is shared with your opponent and the fact that it is a hard effect to get off make this a worse card than Mask of Darkness, even with so much face down hate this format. It has potential in places like burn decks where a second Ceasefire can mean game, but other than that the spell version is a lot better.

Traditional-1/5
Advanced-2/5

Default Trap Reclamation

You get the trap card you just used back to your hand for price of discarding one card. As already thought by many people this is just like a Mask of Darkness, but in trap form. The only reason you could playing this is with in conjunction of Destiny Heroes. Lets say you play Torrential and chain this, discard your Malicious and get back that Torrential for another use. The same applies with Mirror Force, save your self and then use the discarded Malicious for a tribute of some kind. Most people play 7 to 10 traps in their deck and are usually better of keeping the discarded card other than get something back that the opponent will know whats coming next.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1.5/5
