Equip spells have to be the most unsupported spell “type” in all of Yugioh. The few releases we get are either archetype specific or absurdly bad. Thankfully, there are still plenty of older cards that can be effective. Strategies behind these cards can be a bit lackluster, as they can be destroyed easily and they take up precious spell/trap zones. Such disadvantages prevent players from giving equip spells any love.
If you’re making an equip deck, or are simply interested in seeing some cool equip cards – read on!
I’ve read and considered every single equip spell in Yugioh, that are available in English anyway. Using this knowledge, I compiled a list of the 10 best equip spells in Yugioh!
Legendary card, we’ve all used Megamorph at some point in our dueling career. It was incredible in the pre-GX era, giving you huge advantages if your life points are even slightly lower than your opponent’s. In today’s game, it still has a place in certain decks and should be considered if you’re looking for an equip card. Just remember, the ATK increase switches to decrease if you manage to deal a lot of damage with this card.
9. Mask of the Accursed
Another classic card, one that incites rage rather than nostalgia. Mask of the Accursed was the bane of many player’s existence, stopping their powerful monsters in their tracks and dealing small amounts of damage every other turn. It still holds up today as well, particularly in stall decks. Stalling to deal small amounts of damage is a surprisingly successful tactic, although it will cause your opponent to hate you!
8. Lucky Iron Axe
Nice and simple, a small ATK boost while granting a wee bit of relief if it gets destroyed. You can’t really go wrong with the Lucky Iron Axe, it’s a generalist equip card to fit in any deck that requires it. The flexibility makes owning one a must-have, you’ll likely have a couple in your spare cards.
7. D.D.R. – Different Dimension Reincarnation
Banishing is all the range these days. With so many monsters being immune to destruction effects, cards that banish are becoming more and more popular. For some decks, cards being banished is absolutely crushing (such as Exodia decks). This equip spell contributes heavily in this regard, allowing you to get one of your banished monsters back. If Different Dimension Reincarnation is destroyed, it doesn’t re-banish the card equipped to it.
6. Big Bang Shot
Oh man, this card is so good when combined with some other great equip cards. Sometimes it’s nice to have an option like this, piercing can absolutely win you the game, especially when you’re up against stall/token heavy decks.
If not for Big Bang Shot banishing the equipped monster when it leaves the field, it’d certainly be much higher on this list.
