Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Reasoning

An old card with a very crazy effect. Lets take a look:

Floating cards? It makes me wonder what is in that pipe of his...

"Your opponent declares a monster Level. Then pick up cards from the top of your Deck until a monster that can be Normal Summoned is picked up. If that monster is the same Level as the one declared by your opponent, send all picked up cards to the Graveyard. If not, Special Summon the picked up monster and send the remaining cards to the Graveyard."

A somewhat underrated card that can be extremely handy to many decks currently out there right now. With many decks that love putting monsters into the graveyard, this card can be extremely beneficial.

There are a few good decks that can use this card and pull off an easy one turn kill:

- Evil hero dark gaia deck: Dump the cards you need. Play dark calling and summon Dark gaia, all with 2 cards in your hand.
- Hopeless Dragon: Once again, dump all the high level dragons that cannot be normal summoned with reasonings effect, then use Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon to Special summon them to the field. Also, if your opponent does not declare the right card and you special summon a dragon with reasoning's effect, then you have the monster to remove for Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon's Summoning condition!
- Zombies: Put lots of zombies in your graveyard, where you can use book of life, zombie master and call of the haunted to bring them back.

Most players will agree that thinning your deck is extremely important to get to the cards you want in your deck. Which is why players currently run cards such as Ryko, lightsworn hunter, Card trooper, and also cards that search other cards like XX-Saber Emmersblade and Mystic Tomato. So this card is a brilliant way to help get the cards you want.

However, this card does have its cons:
- If you run a very spell/trap heavy deck, you will probably end up sending many useful cards to your graveyard.
- It picks up the cards, then sends them to the graveyard. So Monster effects like Wulf, Lightsworn beast will not activate, rendering them useless.
- While it can do a lot for you, it is slightly luck reliant. You might accidently special summon a card like Junk synchron; a card that would rather be normal summoned so you can get its effect.

So if you have the space in your deck, love monsters in your graveyard, and like an almost free monster put onto your field with no drawbacks, then consider putting this card into your next deck. Or at least, your side deck!
