  • Helps to render your opponent defenseless without their wall monsters.
  • Great for Rex Raptor decks as they usually consist of normal monsters.


  • Its effect applies to you when you are trying to summon an effect monster.

It makes sense in Duel Links because the limited list works differently than in the TCG & OCG

Problem is, it's pointless if the deck using this card has no other limited card.

This is only (and rare used) in dark magician deck. Also it is a double knife card. Can also hurt you if you don't use it correctly. There are TONS of other cards that scream for limitations. This card is a joke in comparison to them.

extremely unhealthy card.basicly otk decks get a free turn 1 and can otk on turn fker did it on turn 1 then runned me down cos i couldnt play on turn 2 thanks to one fkn card.should like u cant activate effects until the end of your next turn.this is super sh i t now.that 🔥 did it with harpies or sth.

"At the start of your Main Phase 1" I think this has to be the first thing you play that turn in order to activate it

I feel like you set most effect monsters against dino deck like ladybug so it doesnt matter since normal or special summon does not apply to set then flip summon

This isn't just for Dino deck, though. It's a generic card.
they should make access denied skill to the pattern of this.they easily summon all effect monsters then activate it.
with new support survivals end might this card see play again?
Counter fur hirr
This card is good in any deck, stop everything.
It can stop sylvan ,CA Or maybe ssa
Is this a good variant please contribute your opinions forinprovements

try to keep your deck at 20 cards to minimize your odds.
you should add Sergeant Electro, Metalmorph, and Windstorm of Etaqua.
Remove the Jammers and fossil excavation and remove 3 cards that wont help you. personally i would remove the polymerizations and that fusion equip spell. and if you have a order to charge use that instead of the greed of shard.
and you will have a good meta

you need at least 50% beatdwon mobs, and 60% to make it balanced, so 10-12 mobs + 8-10 supports, I rather got 3-3-3 dinosaur- 2 any other normal like dunames and jerry OR 2 sargent electro so you can buff your element saurus, total 11 mobs, 1 kuriboh, 1 mirror, 1 metalmorph, 1 de-spell for pvp mai, 1 twister for mai again, 2 order to charge and 2 econs if you carry extra normal

and change otc for 2 more metalmorph if you carry sargent electro (which I rather to get since sargent gives a looot of support not just for his op ability but the 500 extra dmg on element is way too good even if they 🔥 your field
For idk reason, I never see this card in ranked vs dino decks. Either leveling rex to 33 is to much work or this card is just isn't useful.
Best card after order to charge for dino deck..
