General description:
FLIP: Select 1 monster that includes "Gravekeeper’s" in its card name with an ATK of 1500 or less from your Deck and Special Summon it in face-up Attack or Defense Position. The Deck is then shuffled.

Number: DR1-EN007
Rarity: Common
Card Type: Monster / Effect
Monster Type: Spellcaster
Attack Points: 1200
Defense Points: 2000
Level: 4
Attribute: Dark
Password: 24317029

Uses:
this card can be used in just about any deck, especially gravekeeper decks, defensive decks, darck decks, and chaos decks
Strategies and game play:
i would have two of this card in my deck. Especially if you get one when your opponent has no monsters you would set this card then when your opponent summons and attacks it most likely it will not die and you will bring another one to the field giving you monster advantage. And if you set this and then your opponent sets you can then summon another monster to destroy theirs and flip spy and attack them with both for 2400.
Combos with other cards:
it wirks well with tributes because you can flip it, tribute it and have a tribute and 1200 attack monster on your field

Ways to counteract it:
it is best stopped by nobleman of crossout and monsters such as drillagoand mystic swordsman level 2, 4, and 6

Strengths/Pros:
gaining mmonster advantage, possibly attacking with two monsters instead of one and easy tribute

Weaknesses/Cons:
drawing both of them, nobleman of crossout also hurts and 1200 is not that great attack
Variations:
it comes common in PGD and DR1
Artwork and aesthetics:
the artwork depicts the name well but not the effect
Overall rating:
iwould give this a ten for decks like dark, chaos, and the others i mentioned above, and a nine for most other decks

dang....sorry man, I meant to give it a 4, but clicked on 2 instead

it's a really good review, the only reason why I wouldn't give it a 5 is because it's in a lot of decks now and you didn't really give a different perspective other than it creates monster advantage. For example, the fact that Necrovalley makes it a 2500def monster, which is incredibly handy.

honestly, it's just a matter of preference....sure it creates advantage and it's a good card, but anybody who knows anything about this game knows that already. I want to see more originality in the game so I try to review cards that have been over-looked, like Needle Burrower and Non-Spellcasting Area. Anyway, nice review

Handy card, just hate the low atk even if necrovally is on table. I put 3 in my deck any way. (http://www.tradecardsonline.com/im/showDeck/deck_id/40777)
