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.

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.

this card never negates special summons for me. anyone else getting the same?
>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?

You're the dishit. With Kaibaman, Red-Eye Insight, and many other combo getting 7 or higher normal monster is very easy.

It's only negating one summon, or trap/Spell tho. If ur opponent got 3 headlongs / mirror walls ain't gunna save u however the chances of that happening are very slim. I use 2 of these in red eyes deck but often need ultimate providence for added support.

The issue is it makes it harder to make a comeback, I.e near impossible, say you have three super rush but no monsters, you're opponent summons their red eyes first turn, you then try to summon a monster and then bam they activate cv and win, and sure in practice that's unlikely, but the "r"ng and 20 card decks + balance makes it a lot more likely than you'd think

Guys..why can.t i chain cv to summoning blue eyes through kaibaman? It let me chain to summoning kaibaman, but when blue eyes was special summoned i couldn.t negate it. The card says negate the summon of a monster, special summon is considered summoning as well, or am I wrong?

The card cannot negate special summons. I agree the wording is weird and confusing. I learned it the hard way a long time ago, when I decided to wait for Relinquished to negate, not the ritual spell.

You can negate special summons, but only intern special summons. Extern special summons, like fusion and ritual, you have to negate the ritual spell or Plymerization.

Is this card can negate Special Summon Nephthys from Graveyard?

Yes, it can negate the summon of Nephthys. HOWEVER, Nephthys will return during the opponent's next standby phase because it was destroyed by a card effect. Your spells/traps will survive, though.

It can 'Negate the Summon or activation..' You can negate fusion spell/fusion gate activation/ritual spell, just do it when it's activation. If you're too greedy and wait to see which monster it is. Then it's effect of the card. It's already activated. Same as you twister econ lol.

How about sv vs sv? (lol) Will later sv destroy previos sv?

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

Lol same here bro. I even did this to my little brother and he went berserk on me lmfao.
Just watched a duel replay where it looked like player 1 activated Champion's vigilance from his hand, as player 2 tried to return Blue Eyes from being banished using Spiritual LIght Art - Hijiri. There was Blue Eyes in player 1's hand, but there was no 7* or above monster on the field.

What the heck? How is that even possible?

Spirital Light Art - Hijiri's effect - "Tribute 1 LIGHT monster to target 1 banished monster; your opponent can reveal 1 Trap Card from their hand to negate this card's effect, otherwise you Special Summon that monster."
