リクルート (Rikurūto)

Category for Recruit.

Recruit is a slang term given to the ability of putting creatures from your deck into the battle zone.


It is a term originally from Magic: The Gathering.

It refers to popular cards such as Kachua, Keeper of the Icegate, Miraculous Rebirth or Bolshack NEX.

Bolshack NEX
  • Fire/Creature/Armored Dragon
  • 6/6000+
  • When you put this creature into the battle zone, search your deck. You may take a card that has Lupia in its name from your deck and put it into the battle zone. Then shuffle your deck.
  • This creature has "power attacker +1000" for each Fire Bird in your graveyard.
  • Double breaker

While creatures are put into the battle zone without tapping mana, they do explicitly use the term "For No Cost".

A card such as Magmadragon Balga Geyser that looks at only the top card of the deck before seeing if a creature can be played is not considered to be a Recruit card as it doesn't search the entire deck. However, Dragonfriend Kachua can be seen as a quasi-recruit card as it searches the top 7 cards of your deck.
