Pros

  • Great search option that quickly retrieves your key card from your Deck.
  • Also provides direct banish option for your monsters to allow Special Summoning from the Banished zone.

Cons

  • You need to wait until your 2nd Standby Phase after this card was activated, to retrieve the banished card.

Tips

  • The main difference between this card and Different Dimension Capsule is that, it does not stay at your back row until your 2nd Standby Phase, and the card you banish will be face-up, allowing more flexibility to Special Summon/Retrieve the card from the banished zone.

Synergy

Escape from the Dark Dimension and Premature Return functions to Special Summon monsters from your Banished zone to the Field, Escape from the Dark Dimension only applies to Dark attribute monsters, while Premature Return will Special Summon that monster in face-down DEF position. Similarly, Released from Stone is able to Special Summon any Rock-type monster from your Banished zone to the Field. Different Dimension Reincarnation directly Special Summons any monster in your Banished Zone to the Field and equip itself to that monster. Different Dimension Master can also use its effect to Special Summon any monster from your Banished zone by discarding 1 Spell Card as a cost.

Spellbook Synergy

You can banish any Spellbook Spell card from your Deck to your Banished zone (except Spellbook of Eternity), and retrieve it with Spellbook of Eternity. This is very good especially when you need to retrieve that Spellbook card quickly.

Similar Effects

Gold Sarcophagus is a direct upgrade to Different Dimension Capsule. While both cards require you to wait till the second standby phase after activation, Gold Sarcophagus does not clog your backrow, is not negated when it is destroyed, and banishes the searched card face-up allowing you to interact with it. But aside from those disadvantages Different Dimension Capsule can be used as a budget Gold Sarcophagus.

Exodia decks don’t use this slow card. Metaphys abused this. Followed by Thunder Dragons and other meta decks

I like how this card works in anime. In the anime, well, it's continuous spell, unfortunately, so can easily get rid by s/t removal.
This is the effect "Banish 1 card in your Deck face-down. If your opponent activates or Summons a card of the same name during this Duel, you can reveal the banished card to negate the activation or Summon of that card, and destroy it".
I like how its effect is omni-negate. Also the banished card cannot be used it for the rest of duel as I can remember and affects both players.

Yep, if you live in Battle City arc, Kaiba will put all the fvckers who use backrow or backrow removal to jail and get beaten to death, cause all those cards have been forbidden.

Different dimension capsule is a slightly weaker version for this so it's good

Slightly weaker? More like a massive downgrade XD

DDC, despite being normal Spell, actually stay on the field until the card reach your hand, and the ruling for it says if it gets removed from the field before then, no card is added to your hand.

Even worse part, it banishes face-down, so if DDC is gone before you get the card, there's no way to retrieve the banished card for the rest of the duel, unlike with Gold Sarcophagus which banishes face-up, which allows you to pull the banished card immediately with another card's effect if you wish to do so.

very epic card

If you're wondering if this card works on Fortune Lady Light, no it doesn't ( and any related cards that requires "banished by a card effect"). Gold Sarcophagus' banishment is a cost, not an effect.

...Gold Sarcophagus's banish is very, VERY clearly an effect. Which you can very easily determine by... Activating it. If it was a cost, it'd banish before it could be chained to. Which it doesn't.

Nobody is wondering if Fortune Lady Light works with it, however, because Gold Sarcophagus can't banish a card from your field...

Just for curious, Konami recently added this card to selection box does it mean they gonna release it in big main box (outside structure ex deck)?
