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

Level-up reward--
Victory againstKaiba Lvl 30 or above [SR]
Card trader--


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.

Level 7 or higher normal monsters

This needs to be unlimited l, it isn’t searchable and blackwings get a similar card so no this is not broken at all
Has this card been removed from the game?!? I used to have it but now it’s not in my card list
Who the hell thought it was a good idea to create such a broken card. I've never seen something so 🔥ous in my entire life. What's the origin of this piece of crap in the real life game. And why the hell is it not forbidden.

Controlling a level 7 or higher normal monster isn’t something most decks other than Blue Eyes can/want to do. This card is completely fine where it is

It's a more balanced version of Solemn Judgement.
This card is one that doesn't even function. I had Blue-eyes White Dragon out, this card set since 2 turns ago, and in response to the opponent activating a card, Champion's Vigilance couldn't even be activated in response.
Really says a lot that a counter trap can't even be activated when all criteria are met

This happens to me too with Buster Blader Level 8 and Dark Paladin both on field and champion of vigilance set face down, 5 traps/spells were already activated, but nowhere to find this card activating...

Buster blader and dark paladin are not normal monsters my guy. Thats why it wouldn’t activate

I’m guessing they activated a monster effect, which this does not negate
This card isn't working, winged dragon of ra gets destroyed, was fighting npc w labyrinth of nightmare and the clown that has destroy effect when battle position is changed. No prompt at all.

my bad, it was for normal monster
It's limited for a reason and I agree with its limitation. Real players know what I'm talking about.

Completely irrelevant seeing as other 🔥 broken overpowered cards are allowed that don't even have any requirements such as having a level 7+ monster out to even activate it.

Seeing as you seem to think cards with removal effects that have NO requirements are ok, but Champion's Vigilance, which has a requirement to even activate isn't, then clearly you have a problem

CV unlimited would make BE, RE and DM too powerful since they are easy to summon that's why it's still limited to 1

The fact that you think all those cards bar Canadia are much more over powered than champions vigilance show how little you know about balancing and the other anon is right if that was his first turn board he’s more most likely going to win. a dimensional prison and drowning is just slowing down your loss
That moment when you remember good 'ol Charging Gaia is a lvl7 monster that can be summoned with no tribute :3

if only it was a normal monster
Blue-eyes & Dark Magician related decks could be back to the meta if we can put 3 copies.
wow RL speed duel has 3 vigilance :(

And literally 1 monster that's worth using with it. (2 if you count the 1 filler Red-Eyes some Blue-Eyes decks use for a fourth Flute target that works with Vigilance.)

It's still probably in the top 3 best Spell/Traps in the RL Speed Duel format at the moment, though.
wow RL speed duel has 3 vigilance :(
please unlimit this

That's why it's just an R rarity card.
Not with a single card tho, that's for sure. But like I said, that was just wishful thinking...
