  • Summons an /Assault Mode monster.


  • Costly to use.
  • Useless without the specified Synchro monster.
  • Can only summon the /Assault Mode monster from the deck.


Psi Reflector

One of the few reasons Assault Mode Activate is worth using. Assault Mode Activate will help Psi Reflector become a Synchro enabler and therefore more reliably summon the Synchro monster’s /Assault Mode counterpart.

/Assault Mode

Here are the currently available /Assault Mode monsters.

-Summon reflector
-Use it's effect to search assault beast
-Search assault mode active with discarding beast
-Use reflector 2nd effect to reveal assault mode active, and SS beast from GY. Suit it's level for synchro summon
-Synchro summon the said monster
-Set assault mode active, and active it on the next turn

Btw you need the assault mode monster in your deck. Won't work in hand.
Is there an alternative card to use to summon an Assault Mode monster if it's been drawn into your hand?

The "tribute" is a cost or effect?

Tributing is never an effect. It's a cost.

Effects can Tribute. (Basically every Ritual Spell in existence does this, for example, as do cards like Ectoplasmer and Summoner of Illusions) But in this case, yes, Assault Mode Activate's Tribute is a cost. Ignoring Ritual Spells, Tributing as a cost is significantly more common than Tributing for an effect, but it's not rare enough to ignore entirely.

Whats an assault monster?

An Assault monster is an effect monster that has '/Assault Mode' in it's name.

They are upgraded forms of Synchro monsters that are summoned by cards like this one.

For example, if you have 'Stardust Dragon' on your field, you can use this card to tribute 'Stardust Dragon' and summon 'Stardust Dragon /Assault Mode' from your deck.
First to activate this wins...
