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.

I just summoned a tenkabito shien card that reads "this card is unaffected by the effects of trap cards" yet champions vigilance destroyed tenkabito, if it negated the summon that would make sense if he went back into my hand, he can affect the summon sure but tenkabito went to the graveyard and that doesn't make sense, IMO champions vigilance shouldn't stop him from being summoned it's the whole point of this 1500 art card

The Oracle can be either summoned by tributing 2 monsters like any other 7+ star monsters (it will get 2 effects) or 3 monsters (to get all 3 effects))or you could just choose to tribute one GK to get 1 effect

Tenkabito Shien has a continuous effect and KONAMI RULINGS state that continuous effects are applied as long as the card is face up on the field, so no need to debate anything. :)

CV negates the summoning. Even if you SUMMON sorcerer of dark magic or jinzo (if it ever be made available), CV can still work because those cards did not yet enter the field.

Negating the summon of the monster overrides any effect the monster carries. A flipped Hane-Hane can't follow through with its effect if it is hit with CV. In that same respect, CV's text reads for Trap, Spell, or Normal/Flip summons - 'negate and destroy' and it happens in that order, first negating the summon, and then sending the card to the graveyard.

>Draw Kaibaman
>Summon BEWD
>Use this card
>Win the duel

Seriously, that's it. That's fucking it. Literally nothing in the game can touch this combination. Sphere Kuriboh is the only thing that can do anything to this, and it's only a defense position switch for a single turn.

Why the fuck was this game breaking card even MADE? What were they thinking?

Yes the later cv will negate the first cv; I have negated someone else's cv with my own cv XD

Why does this card not work against BEWD special summoned by the effect of Kidmodo dragon?
<< Anonymous(PK)
Anoymous 12days ago Reply
because it negates normal summons only. you can negate the polymerization or temple of the kings or whatever but if you didnt you cant do anything because the effect goes off.

nvm my internet only loaded half of your comment for some reason so i didnt see the kimodo dragon. anyway you cant negate special summons with this card

Um, COMPLETELY IGNORING the 2 Anons, CV can negate ANY Summon type. However, because BEWD was summoned by a Monster Effect (the only thing CV can't stop), Blue-Eyes was able to get by it.
If you play this card you can just kill yourself.

Haha, but if you play Harpy-Relinquished, Tea/Weevil Burn or 3SD it is ok.

This card needs to be emergency banned. This card far exceeds the power of every other card in the game right now. Konami is a bunch of brainless morons for every putting this in the game so early.

Think about how to have 7 stars or higher monster in your field. Normally, you need to tribute two monster cards and plus 7 stars monster itself that three cards right there.

this card itself doesn't have any problem. the 3 star demotion skill is the problem.

was in a duel, let opponent summon Kaibaman, then when he went to special summon bewd it allowed him and i didnt have a chance to activate vigilance. i set it a few turns before, and had dark magician lvl 7 in attack position. shouldnt it have stopped his special summon of bewd?

It doesnt stop summons by card effect

You should have used it on Kaibaman directly
Would this be able to activate if you were to attack a face down flip effect monster like Hane Hane?

It will only negate a Flip Summon, which is different than being flipped face-up from an attack. It will not negate monster effects, nor attacks. Nothing about that situation would trigger a vigilance. :)

It is supposed to counter special summon too? I played dark necrofear and it got countered.

According to yugioh wikia : "CV only can be activated against Special Summons which do not start Chain Links, such as that of "Chaos Sorcerer" or Xyz Summons." It means CV can negated a special summon from a monster that you need to banishing or discarding a cards first special summon it. So, it also applies on (can negates) dark necrofear or valkyrion special summon.
This card doesn't work with 3ds anymore or am i using it wrong?

Until the end of the turn 7star monsters are summoned by 3sd, they stay at 4star and of course CV won't work
wow this game is becoming really unplayable if you don't have these kinds of cards, back then the most trouble you'll face was mirror wall and michizure

Make Standby Burn or HHG, dude.. No need to farm LDs too much. Otherwise become P2W player, and stop complaining.
