Champion's Vigilance

Champion's Vigilance
TypeTrap Card
Card Effect TypeActivation requirement / Card effect


If you control a Level 7 or higher Normal Monster, when a monster would be Summoned OR a Spell/Trap Card is activated: Negate the Summon or activation, and if you do, destroy that card.

How to get/rarity

Victory againstKaiba Lvl 30 or above [SR]

Rating8.5 / 10

The effect negating the summon or activation is very powerful. You will use this card when your deck is specialized to special summon high level monsters.

Tips, related cards, skills

Blue-Eyes White Dragon

A good option to use Champion's Vigilance with. It has high attack and good defense, but it's also easy to use with BEWD because Kaibaman is available and you can obtain multiple copies without buying packs.

Phoenix Gearfried

Good in a gemini deck but a little trickier to use since summoning this using Blazewing Butterfly or with Superalloy Beast Raptinus on the field, this will become an effect monster.

Why this is not counter the special summon?
I can only activate this card if my opponent normal or tribute summon a monster.

Because normally you let a monster/spell/trap SS the other monster. I think CV would work against Tricky SS as he SS itself.
Any deck advice??just started playing, was looking into blue eyes?but after reading that it is not so great...Any other suggestions? ?

Spellbooks, comes from a mini box and you can cn build a decent 30 card version with a few copies of each book.
Dark Phanton
I use Kaibaman and Blue-Eyes White Dragon, playing versus Sylvan Deck, all my cards have no chance against Sylvans effects, because they can destroy the Blue-Eyes and also destroy my trap. These Sylvans can take you down in the Second Turn with that Champion Carrot, the Giant Tree and another Silvan guy. If you put better traps, Kaibaman and Blue-Eyes don't stand a chance.

Blue eyes is trash and you should go for a better deck
Can konami lift the ban on this card from 1 to 2 atleast, with sylvans and spellbooks in the meta vanilla decks dont stand a chance without this card. Decks made with these wont even be competitive so can they make it two so we can have fun...
In this meta there is no reason crippling vanilla decks of all things
Champion's Vigi did nothing wrong
Can you only have one normal monster on the field? Because I had 2 BEWD and Dark Paladin. I was against 3 other BEWD. My opponent drain shielded my 6900 DP attack, then I went with BEWD 3200 attack against his 2700 defense position BEWD, he wall of disruptioned me so it was 800 vs 2700 and I couldn't activate champion's vigilance? I had like 1100HP left so I lost the game. Imagine losing against dragons with Dark Paladin lmao.

CV work with 2 too, so either you can't counter during damage step or you tried to use it the turn you set it?
They need to unnerf this immediately! They limited it during a time when the meta was all about Ancient Rules and the beginning of Red Eyes decks. It would be a great field-leveler against many higher tier decks.

Yeah, it would be Toadally Awesome if this happens.

Konami's OCG/TCG branch moved down cards in the banlist if they're no longer harmful to the meta, the DL branch should do the same.
The guy on the artwork is Phoenix Gearfried? If true, no wonder looks cool

Yeah, it's Phoenix Gearfried.
Need to make this card unlimited or semi-limited.
Why doesn't this card work against WoD? Anyone knows?

You DID have a level 7 or higher NORMAL monster on the field right?

Of course I had a level 7 or higher normal monster (BEWD) on the field.
