  • Heals you for free whenever you activate a Counter Trap card.
  • Can be used to destroy a card your opponent controls.


  • Condition for activating effect is quite specific making him less useful in decks other than Counter Fairies.
  • Below average stats make him difficult to keep on the field.


  • Use this card in a deck with lots of Counter Trap cards, monsters with effects that support Counter traps(usually Fairy-type monsters), and Sanctuary in the Sky. This strategy is called Counter Fairies and could be a very powerful anti-meta option.

Counter Trap support

Here are some other monsters whose effects activate and/or trigger when you activate counter trap cards. They can be used together in a deck centered around activating counter trap cards and then triggering monster effects to get the best possible value out of them.

Sanctuary in the Sky

The better effect of this card is that you can destroy a card your opponent controls after countering another card. Since counter trap cards usually give you a minus in card advantage when activated, Meltiel’s Destruction effect helps even out your loss.

Counter Trap cards

Here is a list of Counter Trap cards with powerful disabling effects that you can use in combination with Counter Fairies.

Im sorry but it is bugged.. i used "wire trap" (which is a coounter trap card) and i had "sanctuary in the sky" on the field..

I did get the 1000 life point heal but on the destroying part is bugged

So wht happened was.. i could destroy eneme face up cards but if i click on the face down.. it could not destroy it..

Did I read the effect wrong? Or perhaps it is bugged?

If it is bugged pls fix thx

It's not a bug. Read your cards again.

Hint: The Sanctum of Parshath
By any chance superb tea will come back? Cos I need to build a counter fairy deck. I spend my 2 UR tickets on Meltiel. I need my last one

They only repeat the roaming events once. I don't know why people keep thinking that these old events would have a chance to come back.
Soon meltiel will be available on ranked reward or card trader, I guess
Came here for answers because this cards seems to be extremely bugged. Can’t even say how many time I’ve tried to destroy an opponents card with Meltiels effect and nothing happens. As if this deck isn’t bad enough

By chance, are you using it with The Sanctum of Parshath and targeting the opponent's back row? That spell prevents ALL set spells/traps from being destroyed. I haven't seen any problems when using Meltiel to destroy monsters or other face-up cards.
Why I can't use the 🔥ing effect that destroy a card in field?????

It's definitely not too "fancy", whatever you meant by that. And in terms of being OP, we have far more ridiculous cards in the game already, just look at the current meta.

Lol one week later they release her plus some other useful counter fairies cards
How come when I activate a counter trap with him and sanctuary in the sky on the field, I gain 1000 lp and when I get ready to destroy a card nothing happens then the duel flips and I lose?

This seems to be a glitch atm, same with van dalgyon if you target a face down card it doesn't work so for now just target face up ones till its fixed
it's mvp but since he only has 1600 atk points is kinda easy to take him down by battle
how to obtain this card now?

It's because you aren't contributing anything by commenting something as useless as that.

You got some issues if you get upset about your useless spam being removed.
Battle Phase Splits into Start Step, Battle Step and , End Step.

Think of those like standby, main and end phases.

In the battle step the turn player can declare attacks, and after attack decleration replays can occour.

After an attack has been confirmed, A substep called the damage step is entered, here there are many more restrictions on what can and can't be activated.

This is where the interaction occurred which is why there was no replay. Similarly if replays could still occur, super rush headlong could clear fields and then make a direct attack.

inside the damage step is damage calculation, which has even more restrictions on what can be activated and the rules can get quite obscure.
