  • Protected from being tributed.
  • Can give you some control and information over your opponent’s resources.


  • Very restrictive summoning condition.
  • Weak defense stat.



These cards can help you ease the summoning of Diabolos, King of the Abyss. Mausoleum of the Emperor summons it at the cost of your LP. Advanced Force allows you to tribute 1 high-leveled monster to tribute summon this card, for this you can use Darkflare Dragon


Since this card cannot be tributed, it is safe from the effect of Ectoplasmer. Only your opponent will be tributing monsters, unless you control other monsters, which makes for a good control combo.

They can, Lava Golem and Kaiju's tributing is not treated as an effect but a summoning condition.

Being able to control the opponent's draws is fairly powerful, especially with only 4-card hands and a much greater emphasis on battle "traps" than the TCG/OCG. That being said, Peeking Goblin and that one Crowler skill nobody uses are better at it.
