today's card wasn't really ran until its rarity came down:

originally this card wasn't used simply because it was very hard to come by as a TP Ultra and Jinzo had the same effect:
As long as this card remains face-up on the field, negate the effects of all Trap Cards except this card on the field.
After this card was lowered to a Super Rare in DB2 and then a common the the Warrior Structire deck, it became an option for decks.

Last format when people were going for the Chaos Sorceror/RftDD win condition; Decree started being run to stop those RftDD's from getting used once again making the remove from game area a bit of a risk.

Nowadays with Sorceror being banned there isn't many players running RftDD since its all about a 1 for 1 ratio nowadays. Decree went from main deck to side as it'll hurt your own 1 for 1's like Sakuretsu or the revived Bottomless Traphole. Its even disappearing from side decks as the burn/stall decks are becoming a lesser occurence along with other ways to stop those decks.

Still a card sought after by duelists, but not as useful as it once was.

Advanced: 2.5 out of 5
Traditional: 2 out of 5
