Card Trivia

 This is the only card to have been Semi-Limited in-between formats.
This is the first Draw Engine card to become a Special Edition promo, the second being Solar Recharge.
This card's artwork may be a subtle reference to Nightshroud and/or Trueman.
The artwork of this card is similar to if not the polar opposite of Consecrated Light. They both show a geometric shape in the center of a vortex of their element. This card's artwork has a Deck representing a rectangular solid while Consecrated Light has a sphere. Both cards also focus on DARK monsters whether it is for or against them.
This card is the first of three TCG exclusive cards (at the time) to be restricted in any way. It was followed by Reborn Tengu and Tour Guide From the Underworld.
This card's artwork is very similar to that of Veil of Darkness. Both cards are also Spell Cards that support DARK monsters and have a similar effect gestalt involving concurrently drawing and removing cards from the hand.
Common Charity is a Trap Card version of this card that uses Normal Monsters instead.
