You can activate 1 Trap Card the turn it was Set. You can send 1 "Mystical Beast of Serket" in your Monster Zone and this card you control to the Graveyard; Special Summon 1 monster from your hand or Deck, or 1 Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck. You can only use each effect of "Temple of the Kings" once per turn.
Can someone please explain why this used to be banned in tcg trap cards by nature sre defensive and therefore most likely to be used during your opponents turn so its 1st effect is useful but not op and its 2nd effect is kinda meh since it doesn't ignore summoning conditions plus you're going -2 at the minimum(-3 if you tribute or summon with another s/t)
In part because it's a HUGE speed summoning tool. It's designed to work with trap monsters like Apophis and the Tiki cards, and cards like Metalmorph and Kunai with Chain that equip to monsters, allowing you to use them right away. Think about it - you can summon a 5/6 star monster right away by activating a Trap Monster and Tributing it immediately.
Hell, draw the right starting hand (TotK, Serket, any Trap Monster) and bam, turn 1 BEUD. Or play and immediately activate Shapesister and Normal Summon any 4-star, bam, instant 6-star Synchro of your choice (I run this in my Rishid deck to quickly drop Flamvell Uruquizas). It's -extremely- useful.
I can't activate the special summon effect. I have Beast of Serket on the field, last turn no monster cards in my hand but 1 fusion in my deck. Do you need a monster card in your deck/hand to activate the card?
How were ya'll playing 1.7 and the app just said to update? ... some auto-update, but I'm glad it didn't & now pissed folk can't use Serket for a while. My last duel right before maintenance was lv 30 Mokuba and I actually ended the duel just b4 midnight (won~). This morning however, they made me reduel the whole thing & Serket was being a badly glitched boi. D: F'ing hell.
The exact same thing happened to me omg, like i finished possibly right at the reset and the game went into maintenance and when i logged in the next day I had to redo the whole duel with a glitched temple, so annoying.
I’m new to this thread don’t know how long it’s been here but, with my experience with TOK and mystical beast serket, You need a fusion card that doesn’t say it requires it to be fusion summoned. Like BEUD, As of the newest patch in June 2018 Konami fixed the bug. You can summon beud by activating temple of kings and sending mystical beast of serket to the graveyard.
